A lot of our posts lately have centered around what it means for Cooper now that he is a permanent member of our family. This whole next year will be filled with “Coopers first ____________ as a member of our family.” And next week, Cooper will experience a big one: Cooper’s first Christmas!
Of course you remember that Cooper was with us last year for the holidays. He got a whole round of “first” that week, too – he got to travel out-of-state, stay in a hotel, pretend to be a “city dog,” and experience snow for the first time. But this year, we’re staying put here in Nashville, so Cooper will get to see what Christmas Morning is all about. His excitement is contagious.
There were a few items we had to secure this year now that Cooper is a family member. He already has his own stocking, so we could check that off the list early.
Oscar has his own Christmas ornament,
…so of course Cooper needed one too.
We’re also a big fan of the photo holiday cards, so naturally Cooper’s gorgeous mug had to be included this year.
And finally, Cooper
was forced to got to partake in my own little annual tradition of getting embarrassed dressed up to take the photo for next year’s Christmas card.
Wishing you and yours a happy-merry-jolly holiday season, from our family to yours!
