So.....I got a secret santa package tonight from Kelly, Gracie, and Jetta!![img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/dance_for_joy.gif[/img]

I have to start by saying that trying to unwrap things with my dogs is HILARIOUS! Just like last year Izzy grabs at everything, then runs and hides it in the back room where the crates are. Jet gets confused and brings me the toys we already own the whole time. Spike lurks and tries to play with the wrapping paper.

Here we are checking out the package...

Yay! I'm so glad everything was approved by Izzy and Jet! I didn't even think about the cat, otherwise I would have sent some fun
cat nip or something! The sock monkey is the one that Daisy loved, kept stealing, and I will probably pick up another for her!!

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Great work, Kelly! I LOVE the blanket and the owl toy. I think it's so funny that Spike was getting in on the fun, too.
