Happy Holidays 2012 From Team Shiva


I didn’t meet my goal of bringing The Cat to Santa Pix this year. It seems wrong to have our annual holiday picture without a member of our family. Somehow, I don’t think he minds.  As nice as it would be to have him there with us, I don’t know if it is worth the sacrifice of his discomfort. Or Santa’s, for that matter. The Cat can consider it my personal gift to him.

I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family today, wherever you are and whether you celebrate the official holiday or not. I am so grateful to have you in my life and consider each and every one of you a friend. Thank you a million times over for every kind thought you’ve shared my way. I don’t want to get too maudlin on a day of joy but you have made a big difference in our little world.

Best wishes to you all!

  1. Merry Christmas to all of you Kristine, I love the photo and think it was pretty wise to leave kitty at home. Even though Bob Stone sits on command, I don’t think I’d venture taking him out into all that chaos, I mean he hides when the two little ones come over. 🙂

    Enjoy your holiday!!


  2. Thanks Kristine. May you and your family have a wonderful day with your families.
    (P.S. I never brought Nick for our Santa shoots either. He would have been so freaked out.)

    Merry Christmas!


  3. Knowing cats – it would have been totally appropriate to superimpose a picture of your cat on the holiday pose…photobombing, y’know? LOL
    Happy Holidays to all of you, kitty included!

  4. Hey Kristine…we don’t celebrate Christmas…but I understand the festive cheer n season of giving, loving and care. We hope that you, PH, Shiva and Kitie Meister (pardon the spelling) have a beautiful holiday. Merry Christmas.

    BTW, just so you know… Reading abt you n Shiva over the past year or so…we do feel like we really KNOW you. And having you in our lives make a difference to our lives too…

  5. Cute picture! I like the way Shiva and Santa have the same tilt to their heads.

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and that the cat did NOT get thumbs. That would be scary indeed!


  6. I love this photo! Shiva’s expression is priceless. It’s all I can do to drag three teenagers to a photo with Santa, but next year maybe I’ll take my chickens instead. Hmm …
