I bet all your moms have been spending a lot of their time wrapping all the Christmas presents... These are the presents that mom managed to finish wrapping over the last couple of days (there are still LOTS waiting to be wrapped!!). I sure hope she can complete them in time.. heehee... I tried to help by supervising and giving 'artistic directions'... i.e. which wrapper to use, what color ribbons to go with the wrappers, how the ribbons should be placed, etc. Hershey on the other hand, was not of any help at all. She kept stealing and running away with the presents, ribbons and tapes!! (Mom: I want to throttle her!! I am sure none of you faced such a problem, right?)

Mom finally bought the silver Christmas ornament which she saw at the Harrod's shop after one month of hesitation. She'd definitely have bought it on the spot if we have Lucas with us today since it'd be his very first Christmas, but since he is in Heaven, mom did not buy it because of 'various reasons'. Now this is where the DWB magic comes in... after the advice she got from Mona and her mommy, mom made up her mind to buy it regardless of what anyone may say. She's not looked back and is really glad she managed to buy it before they are all sold out.

I have suggested to mom that we can make it our family tradition to buy one Christmas ornament every year for Lucas, it's a simple way of letting him know that he is being missed dearly by everyone.

I think that's a great idea and a very visible way to remember and celebrate Baby Lucas!

Give your mama some goober hugs from me, and tell your sissy to bring it down a notch.

Goober love,

My mom went in her room and shut the door and wrapped all the presents in one night. It took her hours. We think the ornament is lovely.

Do any of those gifts have your name on it? No wrapped gifts go under the tree for me because I can't be trusted. Whatever!
The ornament idea is wonderful! It made my mom tear up a little.

Hey Huskee, I'm guessing those presents are for you and Hershey. Is your mom going to get busy wrapping presents for everyone else soon? Christmas is getting near...

What a wonderful remembrance of Lucas.
Your mom is way ahead of Grammie in the wrapping dept. She is hoping to get them done tomorrow as she could not go to work tonight because of the snow we are getting.

Katie and Gizmo said...

Hi Huskee,

Thank goodness. For a second there I thought you were gonna say that Hershey destroyed the lovely ornament. Phew!

In case I don't get to drop by before hand, I just wanted to wish you and Hershey and your mum a very Merry Christmas.

Hugz & lickz

That is a wonderful tradition to start to remember Lucas each year! Very cute ornament.
And Hershey is still acting up? Bear is really a pretty good puppy....we must be lucky! (Just don't let Bear know that I said this!)

that's a very pretty ornament and we think that is a wonderful tradition and tribute to Lucas.

your mom is doing a great job on wrapping all of those gifts. we hope that a lot of them are for you!


Pedro said...


I'm glad your mom bought the ornament to remember Lucas (not that she'd ever forget). I hope she can smile when she looks at it. I received your Christmas card! I thought I had sent you one but when I read over the list 3 times I didn't see your name so I mailed one right away. If you end up with two I apologize but I'd rather send 2 than non at all!!


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We think that is a great idea! What a beautiful ornament. We know Lucas would approve!

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Deetz said...

What a great idea. I think it is awesome and my mum may do the same thing for Gizmo. Our Hershey looking shark is eating everything too. My mum got up last night and he had a good pair of her shoes. Mum not so happy. But, deetz is happy because Deetz is no longer in trouble...hehe
