9th December....Day 9 on my Christmas and Holiday Countdown!

OMB we are 9 days into my Countdown.....are you all getting excited?I know I am!!! Anyway we have some guests today....we have Sam and Elsa from Tails Around The Ranch .They are 2 pups getting all festive for the Holidays!...
Hmmm That reminds me have you written you letters to Santa?Are You all being Good?Cause Santa Klaus is coming to Town!....

Now we have started our Christmas Card count....I have 4 paper cards and 2 ecard and mummy has 4 paper cards so far so as usual I'm head...hehehe
Now mummy said she is going to print the ecards off so they can be added to my door ,but for now here are our paper cards.....Mine 1st!
Now Mummy's!
Now time for my Christmas Kitchen....

And in case anyone is wandering YES Mummy has made her Christmas cake but it's not ready to share with you yet but here is the Recipe she uses.....
Now mum make it early and them feeds it with rum or brandy for a few weeks before she decorates it.This year she used Whiskey as she had lot of that in the cupboard and didn't want to spend extra money on brandy or rum.But for those of you who want to try making your Christmas Cake here is a cheat so you don't have to feed it to save time....Soak all your dried fruit in a bowl with a load of Brandy or Rum or even Whiskey for at least 24 hrs or a couple of days and keep topping up the spirits so it can soak it all up!Now you still have time to bake your own cake!
Now time for a reminder of the rules for those of you who want to join in my Countdown....
The rules are as follow:
1:You have from Now until 5am UK time on Christmas morning to get your photo's into me.
