Hi friends. I don’t know about y’all, but I have had zero motivation to do anything this holiday season. Ha! 🙂

I mean, we’re totally enjoying it. The house is decorated and festive. And, our time with our family at home has been priceless — we’re loving it on the daily for sure, but… doing much more outside of the house — like holiday parties or special events of any kind, has had zero appeal to me. #Boo 😦

I mean once it gets dark at 5 pm, I’m happy to be home, curled up on the couch with our pack under some faux fur throws with a fire roaring. #TheLife 🙂 I feel like we’re hibernating and waiting for Spring — especially with the rains these last two weeks (which is a BIG deal for a SoCal dude). #WeDontLikeRainandCold Can any of you relate friends??!

Nonetheless, I found some strength today to get out. I had wanted to do this earlier in the month, but finally made it happen today. ❤ Continuing with our family tradition OF NINE YEARS (2010 through 2018), it’s our pleasure to present our 2018 photos with Santa Claus. 🙂 Yay!!! Enjoy friends. Hope you and yours are having a gay holiday season. ❤ ❤ ❤

FYI. Big thanks to our friends at the THE COLLECTION RIVERPARK for producing an excellent Santa station this year. We enjoyed y’all last year, but you totally elevated it this year. Yaaassss!!! Check them our friends if you’re in the area —

Here are our previous years with Santa. 🙂 You’ll notice we start with one dachshund (Rufus) and then have two (Rufus & Emily) and finally graduate to three (Rufus, Emily & Lily). Also take note of the pack’s wardrobe. 🙂 #Memories
