What Happens After Halloween.....

Since I am a last minute holiday shopper (I was at the grocery store at 9pm last night buying Halloween candy) I am always annoyed to see Christmas candy sitting right beside the Halloween candy just daring me to think ahead but I can't just can't do it!

For example, our cats, Henry and Buster, don't get to rest under the Christmas tree until Christmas Eve, poor things! Thankfully, they cannot read the calendar or else they would not report me for being a bad cat mom!

Obviously, I am a last minute kinda gal but I think my lack of planning makes life interesting hectic stressful fun, don't you agree? That being said, I simply do not understand how anyone could possibly think about Christmas when Halloween isn't even over with but apparently some people dogs do and their names are:

And guess what they are planning? A Holiday Christmas Card Exchange, that's what!!! Here are the details (and they are coming straight from Frankie's paws, mind, and soul) and not from me....

Even though I am not a planner-aheader, I am going to pawticipate and I hope you will too! In fact, I am going to e-mail my home address to one of the party planners TODAY! Shocking, I know, but I am going to give it my best shot! Please join in on the fun if you can!
Your friends.....April, Henry, Buster, and Daisy


  1. We are pawticipating in that, too! It annoys our Mom to see the Christmas stuff out so early, too... but she says she hates it because you can't even enjoy one holiday without the others being right in your face. Drives her nuts!
    Have a Happy Halloweiner!

  2. Happy Halloween
    Thanks for reminging us about Xmas.
    We love your tree. It looks vintage and so does that ornament on top.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  3. Christmas stuff has been out here since the middle of October, can you believe that??

    Happy Howl-o-ween!!


  4. Happy Halloween! My cats sleep under the tree 24/7 during the holiday season :)

  5. Awww what a fun thing to do!! Good luck everyone participating!!

    Oh it's been Christmas here in the UK shops since August!! Seriously! LOL!!

    Last minute shopping is always the best - you get BARGAINS!!! :-)

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN April, Henry, Buster and Daisy! Take care

  6. Well lets just keep it to Halloween today
    Happy Halloween to you, This Christmas card thing is a great idea, I've sent my email in, and will be putting about it on a post tomorrow. Cus I'm over the pond I'm guessing you might just get the cards in time!!! we will just have to see.
    Pop over if you have time Tomorrow, I have some things going on, and would like you to take part, of course if you are happy to do so
    See Yea George xxx

  7. Well said!!! I can't understand it either.

    Christmas is everywhere now and I bet some people have already stocked up their Christmas presents, recipes, ingredients and etc.

    I love your tree though!

  8. Hi- I am following you from the Sat Pet Hop-- would be nice if you could come follow me too. You have a nice blog! Will come back to read more.

  9. Just wanted to drop by and wish you a Happy Halloween. A Christmas Card Exchange is always fun to participate in. I'm probably the odd one out here but I get into Christmas mode immediately after Halloween. The days go so fast that it comes and goes before you know it. But today is Halloween so Enjoy!
    Erin & Mom

  10. They are selling live Christmas trees here. Its 80 degrees.
    Happee Halloween
    Benny & Lily

  11. We're excited...I think this means we should be getting our tree out!

  12. So glad I met you April! As I said in my email, I'll bookmark you so I can follow you. Maybe one day my follower button will work again like it's supposed to!!

    I didn't like dogs at all when I was a teenager. My mother was frightened of them, and passed on her fear. But now I love them! Have to, since my son and his wife have big Ollie (golden retriever who weighs more than I do); my youngest daughter has the two little Jack Russell terriers; oldest daughter has a big friendly "mutt" and a little dog named Gracie (I can't remember what kind of dog she is--senior moments!). And the terrier daughter also has three amazing cats. I'm going to start posting more pictures of them. You've just got me excited about all of them!!!

    Have a wonderful day. And enjoy getting ready for Christmas!!!

  13. p.s. I just saw where one can sign up to follow you through e-mail. So I did!

  14. Your cats are sooooooooooooo cute! Thanks for stopping on my blog. I also have a coonhound! What kind is yours? I have a treeing walker coonhound.

  15. Happy Halloween!
    We don't do any holidays at our's just Hubby & I and the 13 felines. Every day's a pawty for us!

  16. My mom always thought that the worstest of all what when in JUNE... they put up the Back to SCHOOL stuffs. hehehe
    THANKS for putting the info about the Card X-change up.
    EVERYBUDDY is WELCOME to Pawticipate!!!

  17. I just came in here again to check out what's going on with my blog. I deleted my other one today because of a glitch in Blogger, and set up a new one called A Long Journey Home. I need to see if when I post this I can get there!! (It's been a frustrating day!)

  18. p.s. It works! Now my picture and the signature links to the new blog.

    Now I just have to get my most loyal followers back. Not a frustrating day. More like a spooky one. Appropriate for Halloween. Hope you and yours have had a great weekend!

  19. We've had Christmas stuff up in the shops for a month or so. We don't have Halloween, or Thanksgiving to take some of the hype away.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
