Christmas Cards from Grandma

In the midst of technology, we text, we blog (yeah), and we send lots of emails, but receiving something special in the mail means so much!  Sending snail mail as what most people call it, means that someone took the time to purchase a card, fill it out, address the envelope, stick that stamp on it, and walk it to their mailbox to ensure that when we receive it — we smile!  Their efforts to send something in the mail meant the world to us!

Nikita Got Christmas Card from Grandma

Well, that is what happened today!  We walked to our mailbox and what did we find?  Both Nikita and Bella (and us too) received Christmas cards from Grandma!  Grandma remembered us too at Christmas and we got our very own cards in the mail.  Mommy waited until Daddy got home from work to open the cards for us, and when Nikita sniffed the envelope, she knew that it was from Grandma and started wagging her tail in excitement.  She loves Grandma!  Nikita always “sniffs” the mail when I bring it in, but when she smells an envelope that Grandma has sent, she wags her tail!

Bella Got Christmas Card From Grandma

Both Nikita and Bella took turns and jumped up on Daddy’s lap so he could read the Christmas card to them.  We will for sure have to save these as they are very special, and this was Bella’s very first Christmas card.  A great big thanks to Grandma for remembering us at Christmas as dogs are an important part of the family too!  We would have called you tonight to thank you Grandma, but we have not yet mastered dialing the phone yet, but we’ll thank you with lots of wet puppy kisses when we see you next!

Love to you Grandma,
Nikita & Bella

  1. I love getting mail too Nikita. There is something so fun about getting a little card in the mail that makes shifting through the junk mail like a treasure hunt. What are you using to photography Bella? If possible bounce the flash off the ceiling or wall. Direct flash on darker pups is always problematic. You can make a little bounce card out of a flash card even for point and shoots 🙂

    • Thanks so much for the bounce flash tip, never thought of doing that! Getting snail mail is the best, as not many people do this anymore now that we have email & texting. You’re right that finding a card in the mail is like winning the lottery or finding a great piece of treasure. 🙂

    • Yep, Grandma is special and always remembers the little furry ones! I thought that those pics were adorable too. It is sometimes hard to photograph Bella since she is soooo dark, but this one turned out cute!
