The dogs weren't very patient either. Bonnie kept coming up to the box and trying to smell and lick it.

Both, especially Stevie, with those big ole puppy eyes begging me to open it.

Then the toys! I had barely taken the paper off this giraffe when Bonnie claimed it as her own. Tags and all still attached. I couldn't get to her fast enough to take them off for a while. Every time Stevie made a move to check it out, she took it to her lair (crate).

Stevie uses that distraction for his benefit.

Next were two soft, SOFT!!! blankets. I love the colors and patterns for both of them, too. Unfortunately, Stevie and Bonnie were a little too busy to enjoy the blankets at first.

I distracted the dogs with their dinner so I could get a picture of all the toys and blanket together.

I particularly love the mug. I am SO not a morning person since having Evelyn! The picture frame stand is so cute too!
At the end of it all, Stevie started to dig in at the blankets.
"Wow! That was fun. Let's do this again next year. For now, I'm pooped!"

Thanks so so much, DJ, Ashli, Kaydence, and Atreyu! We loved our gifts!!! (And I might have to snuggle up next to Stevie on those blankets... so, so soft!)

Yay!!!! I'm so glad they like the giraffe toy! Aren't those blankets unbelievably soft!? I felt them and had to get them. They are probably the softest blankets I have ever felt!
Those blankets are AMAZING. I am -almost- jealous of the dogs! I need to find one in MY size and then I would be so set!
