Christmas Cards

Fred and Gloria want to thank everyone for all of the great Christmas cards they have been receiving.  They wait patiently by the door every morning for Liz the mail lady to see if she brings them more Christmas cards.

Wednesday there was no mail, at all.  No cards, no bills (yipee!) But all Fred seen was there were no cards.  So depressed Mr. Dramatica took to the couch for the whole day.  I tried desperately to perk him up.  Why, I don't know.   Usually I take advantage of  these times and get some things done with out him harassing me.  But it's Christmas, and I didn't like to see him depressed. 

So I tried.

"Freddie, come on lets go out and play for a bit."

"Oh, is my mail out there?"

"No, remember there was no mail."

"Oh, than okay Momma, NOT!"

Yes, he was starting to get a  little nasty about it, so I decided to just let him wallow in his pity and sleep it off.

So he went from the couch to the chair that night

and slept by the door waiting for the next day to see what Liz the mail lady would bring.  I know, he looks pretty down there, doesn't he.

Lo and behold yesterday Fred and Gloria got more Christmas cards.  They even got a card from Liz the mail lady!

And after rejoicing and reading all the cards to Gloria ('cause she can't read) ...........

Freddie Spaghetti passed out from sheer joy!



  1. Poor Fred. I hope you're preparing him for the let-down after the holidays. Yikes.

  2. Mail is an important part of the day. Roxy and Torrey like walking down the street to pick it up, even after walking miles earlier in the day.

  3. Adorable photos! And...congrats! You won the Roam giveaway!
    Please send me your snail mail address at your earliest convenience :-)
