Christmas presents?

How much do you plan on spending for your LOVED one's (Hav's) presents. I think Molly deserves $25. That's more than I spend on Gwen. So don't call me cheap. We only buy for the kids and grandkids at our age.

Well, the fancy show lead I ordered for Kodi was over $100, but in fairness, I'm not sure how much HE cares about that.

I also bought him two new toys and those, together, were about $15. He'll probably get a new bone too!

Oh, and Dave and I are "giving" each other a new king size bed for Christmas, for our new bedroom.

ahhh what a good Santa you are Karen. He will feel your pride when he has his leash on. Yeah I wish we had gotten a King. Molly hardly has any room, not to mention us. Biggest mistake we ever made.

We did that,too!! Our old mattress was killing me.



I do not shop for the beasties. Santa does.

The dogs are getting little fleece blankets they can fluff to their hearts' content. Jack is definitely going to get more chewbones or something. I am not sure about Nessie. She isn't a big chewer or toy player. I may get her some doggie cookies.

The kitties get toys that roll and have catnip in them.

TTFN,
Pam

Well, our old bedroom wasn't big enough. It is barely big enough for the queen! That room will now be our younger son's room, and we will have a new "master suite". Our master suite is still fairly small as master suites go, but it's big enough that we can finally have a king... which means I will get a bit more sleeping room, as Dave sort of sleeps in the middle, and Snowbelle, sometimes Kodi, and I are all bunched into the left over 1/3... And Snowbelle takes up WAY more space than you would think an 8 lb cat could need!

Yeah no fun having sex with a metal spring sticking in your back.
Boy Santa is pretty good at your house. Everyone must have been good.

We're getting a Bob-o-pedic. (Only Pam or another N.E. person will know what that is ) It even is one of the ones that you can adjust the height of the head or foot. I think it will really help with my comfort at night. (due to my RA) It was 1/3 the price of a Temperpedic, and comes with a 20 year warranty. We figured for that price, if we need to replace it sooner, it's worth it. We also did some research and found out that the moving parts of ALL of these beds come from just 2 manufacturers, no matter who is selling the bed. It's what you put on top of them that makes the difference in price.

I forgot, we're going to have to get another sofa throw for Kodi, because we did go ahead and order the leather sofa and love seat. They come with a 5 year protection plan against any damage (including pet damage). If they get any scratches, rips, etc., they will send professionals out to repair the damage. I think they will be fine anyway... Our leather recliner is at least 10 years old, and it looks like new. We ended up finding a set we loved at Jordan's that is a discontinued model, so they were 50% off.

And as far as poor Snowbelle is concerned, if I buy her any toys, Kodi just claims them. So we simply pour her catnip directly on the floor so she can eat it, roll in it and have a really good drunk.
