Furry Faces of Christmas

We've had Jan working on this post for hours.  It's a Christmas memory post.  For our memory - we're forgetful like Jan, you know.  First we had her tack all our postal Christmas cards to the bulletin board so she could photograph them.  We wanted to show them individually but there just isn't time..  If you sent us a card and it isn't posted here, let us know so we can correct our post.  And finally we are ready for the REALLY hard part - getting Blogger to cooperate with us so we can post them all in less than a week. 

We have never participated in the card exchange before because we felt guilty about only sending ecards.  But this year Huffle Mawson explained some send postal and some send ecards and some send both.  So we joined in and had fun. Thanks, Huffle, you did a great job coordinating the list.

These are our postal cards. 

Obviously, these aren't cards.  They are baked holiday decorations by Us 4 Cats.  One has our name on the back.  (Unfortunately the hole broke so we hung/tacked it with the string wrapped around it.)  We don't have a tree to hang them on but we like them fine on our bulletin board.  And they smell good enough to eat.  We want to thank the sweet person who bought them for us and also Us 4 Cats for making them.  Last year we enjoyed the lovely scent of their homemade candle tarts.

We would like to add a word of caution Us 4 Cats left in our comments to those who have purchased the baked ornaments:   While they are basically edible, all cupboard ingredients, the last step was an apple/cinnamon Glaze added to the outsides. so, please do not feed them to your pets : ) While they smell yum yum and would taste nom nom, and could be nom nom without the Glaze, I dont recommend letting woofies get a hold of em cuz the Glaze may upset their bellies.

We're just going to post the graphics in somewhat alphabetical order.Most have the names on them.. It used to be we could click on a photo and view it in a larger size.  Does that still work?  Try it and find out.

We have really enjoyed seeing all the furry faces and hope you have too.  They make a great memory post to come back and visit now and again.

We received some ecards we weren't able to post here because we they are from the web.  But we enjoyed them too.  Thanks for including us in your Christmas..

It's nearly midnight now so Jan says we have to hurry and finish so she can shut down the computer for the night.  (She doesn't trust us to for some reason.)  We're ready for some zzzzzs too.  And it's been slowly growing colder, so move over Jan and make room for us.  If you move too far and fall out ... well, there's a mess of our bedding spread around the living room.  Feel free to help yourself.  Night.

per our above comment, to others who ordered our Cat ornaments, while YES they are basically edible, all cupboard ingredients, the last step was an apple/cinnamon Glaze added to the outsides. so, please do not feed them to your pets : ) while they smell yum yum and would taste nom nom, and could be nom nom without the Glaze, i dont reccomend letting woofies get a hold of em cuz the Glaze may upset their bellies . had to add that tid bit!! thx.

How awesome! I haven't put up my ecard post yet - actually, I don't know if I'm going to have an ecard myself this year - my human has been so preoccupied with other things and she never got a chance to work on it. May still happen, though!
