It’z Christmas Dezi. It’z fur shur time to wake up mommy. (Lexi stretches out her arm and pats mommy on the leg with her dainty paw)

(Mommy slowly opens her eyes and speaks) Good morning girls. Merry Christmas. I love you both sooooooo much. I’m the blestest mommy in the universe. (Dez continues to swoosh her fluffy tail) Dezi, please stop swooshin’ I’d rather not have a mouth full of fur this morning. (Dezi stops swooshing and crawls off mommy’s checst and settles in to massage her arms and legs while Lexi gets the wheelchair positioned)
Oh meowllo everypawdy and Merry Christmas to you all. By now most of you have started celebrating with your own traditions. We thought today we would share our Christmas traditions with you. And afur me furgets, weez joinin da Pet Parade as we do every weekend. Our meownin’ starts out just like any other day, but soon da traditions will begin. After we all get around and sissy and me have our breakfast and mommy has a cup of coffee or two we settle in to start our celebrations. Mommy usually tells da story but today she sed I kuld. So pull up a chair and grab you sum coffee or your drink of choice.
Open da Bible to da story mommy, you know da one ‘bout God luvvin’ us so much dat He gave His only Son so dat whoever believed in Him kuld have eternal life. John 3:16 (paraphrased) And then da one ‘bout how Jesus got here.
So, a long time ago in a place very far away, lived a girl and her betrothed. Dat’s a fiance` in case you was wunnerin’. Well peeps had kind of lost site of God and doin’ right. But God knew all was not lost and decided to send His only Son to earth to save us all from sin and hell. The very furst Christmas purresent was born, literally. Happy Birffday Jesus. But Jesus isn’t just fur Christmas, He’s fur da whole year fru. Jesus was born in a lowly stable full of anipals. Da furmily didn’t have much, but they had lots and lots of luv. And so long as you have luv and God in your life, you can make it fru anyfin’. We are so blest cuz we have each other and now all our furiends from all round da world cuz of da innernets.
So after mommy tells us da story, we sing lots of carols and songs together. And then we settle in to purray and thank God fur all da blessings in our lives and His gift to da world. And then we’ll be openin’ up all those pawsum purresents we got. And as we open each one we’ll say a little purrayer askin’ God to bless them fur includin’ us. And then we’ll all snuggle together and take a little nap. Da day will be over afur we know it, but next year when it comes around again, you’ll find us doin’ da very same thing. There’s nuffin’ wrong with a little tradition.
Heavenly Father, we come to You in the Name of Jesus and we wanna thank you for all da many blessings in our lives. Thank You fur sendin’ Your Son, dat we might have life abundantly.

We thank You fur wrapping them in Your arms of comfurt and rest and giving them peace. And Lord too many are meeting today suffering from sadness due to a recent loss.
