BUFFY AND OLLIE'S CHRISTMAS HOUSE
Ollie was one of my foster dogs. I picked him up in Nov. 2006 and fell in love right away. He danced in the shelter cage and was so happy I was there to get him.
His family also adopted Buffy-- she was keeping an eye on Beesey Bit and Drill Bit when we went to their house last week. Buffy is SO good with kids.
We went to their house so we could see all the CHRISTMAS that is there. I call it the Christmas House because every room (bathrooms included) have a Christmas tree. Each has its own theme.
Buffy and Ollie's mom's name is Joy, so we could see a lot of "Joy" ornaments on her trees. And we took one for her to add.
These are Christmas balls that Joy made herself. They are exquisite! She has so many Christmas ball on display in bowls or large vase/towers. I saw a lot of things I could do next year!
The living room has a very large Santa in it. It's painted on a large board, and there is a replica on the front porch that Joy did. It's such a fun house to see!
The trees were all amazing. I could have sat in each room for hours just looking at the trees. But, I had four "Bits" with me, so I was watching them! I had Lil Bit, Bitty Bit, Drill Bit and Beesey Bit. Beach Bit didn't get to come.
There were snow globes and ornaments hanging on things. The Bits were enthralled.
There were other Joy displays-- this one on a picture board. And Joy describes my friends. She and her husband just make you feel so wonderful when you visit! Thank you to them both for allowing us to come.
There are ornaments of good size hanging on the stairway bannister.
There's another stunning bowl of ornaments.
Even the rugs are beautiful.
This tree was in a bathroom-- my grandbits were going from room to room in awe.
Another beautiful tree. The different color themes were wonderful and just made me smile. This is a happy house to stroll through!
Ollie and Buffy have their pictures in pillow frames.
And here's another bowl of handmade ornaments. Joy is very talented!
She just took up painting and did this picture of Ollie. He was on a boat and of course, he had on his life jacket.
The craft room has a palm Christmas tree. The Bits loved it and pointed out the little umbrellas that decorated the window board.
I think this one was in the family room in the basement. There was also a large sleigh there full of stuffed animals!
The Bits pulled out all the animals and got in, one at a time. They loved it!
Buffy went upstairs to the family room and looked at us over the couch.
It was hard having all those kids there-- I know how you feel, Buffy! I wish I could just roll over and take a nap, too.
Ollie took it in stride though.
They are very sweet Pekes.
When it's warmer, they love to pose outside for pictures.
Or hang out inside and wait for a treat.
They also let their own grandkids put them in plastic bins and push them around the house. They are very good sports.
Buffy will ride around in a car, too.
