Christmas Morning at Rottieopolis. First, we open all the 2-legged kids gifts and then we open all the 4 legged’s gifts. Then, dinner 😉
The expressions on my babies faces are PRICELESS! Nothing melts my heart faster!
My superhero now has a belt fit for his superhero status!
These are little mini-flashlight things in the theme of all the kids’ favorite shows/movies!
For those that do not know Liliana, she LOOOOVES kitties! She is to kitties what I am to Rotties 😉 lol
Serenity picked out her favorite ones!
Kinder eggs are quite possibly my kids favorite thing from Germany/Europe! It is a little chocolate egg with a toy/surprise inside!
Diesel gets in on some loving’ before time to open presents! (we do stockings first, then the gifts under the tree)
I do not know who the bigger ham is, Tahlia or Serenity! LOL
The boys are CRAZY into Skylanders! The individual character can join the video games via a “portal”. The boys were just starting their collection and had LOADS of Skylanders they hoped to get for Christmas. At $10-$20 each, there is no way I would have been able to get them all they wanted without eBay!! Purchased a few “lots” and instantly became the best mom ever! lol
Diesel’s turn to be the ham! lol
Korbin’s grin is amazing, but that “YES!” from Ethan in the background is PRICELESS!
Serenity was getting some tummy rubs when Diesel plowed his big fat head in to make sure he got some snuggles too!
Ok, so I have been wanting a “GoPro” camera FOREVER! Every Birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, etc. I drop hints. This year, Miguel dropped loads of his own hints. He said that we were not in the financial position to spend $500 on another camera and that it was not a priority, etc. He had secretly been squirting away money! I TOTALLY did not expect to see this AT ALL!! EPIC Victory for Miguel!! You did AWESOME!! And you TOTALLY GOT ME!!! I CANNOT WAIT to get one of the dogs coming at the sleeve with this on! Or doing arial acrobatics after a ball with the GoPro attached to them! I am SOOOOO STOKED to start using this camera! (as soon as I figure out how it works…)
So, we were supposed to be buying a toy for a friend’s child for Christmas and Miguel found this little Dragon that when you squeeze the handle, he extends his head and tries to ‘bite’ someone/something. Miguel insisted on getting this for our friend’s child and then spend the rest of the time at the mall walking around “attacking” random strangers 😉 He had so much fun with it that I had to go back and buy another one! As soon as the boys opened it, Miguel was on his feet happy to “demonstrate” the dragon for them! LOL Love my great big grown up baby boy!
The Lego Movie was, without a doubt, Miguel and the kids favorite Movie this year. They have watched it OVER and OVER and Miguel LOVES to walk around the house going, “Honey, where are my pants?” (not such a funny quote if you have not seen the movie! LOL but have no fear, he has his pants on when he asks the question!) So I found these online for the boys and I think Ethan approved!
Besides being cat obsessed, Liliana also LOOOOOOVES comics with Harley Quin, Gambit and Rogue as her favorites!
Every time Tahlia got excited, Serenity responded with kisses! LOL
Most teenagers are hounding their parents for electronics, buy my kids all wanted books for Christmas! Found this one SIGNED by her FAVORITE author!!
UNDEROOS!!! CANNOT believe I found these!! I TOTALLY had underoos when I was a kid! “The underwear that is fun to wear!” AND!!! I had Heman! (I also had My Little Pony!
Unwrapping presents is apparently hard work! LOL
What is better than leopard onsie PJ’s?? Leopard onsie PJ’s AND a Harley Quin belt!
Vera asked me if it was strange that her dogs had their own gift bags. I told her she was asking the WRONG person! LOL Our pets have their OWN TREE (in the nursery!) and get their own present unwrapping session as soon as the hairless 2-legged kids finished theirs!
I think Pyro’s little love nuzzles means he approves!
Leopard (the kitty) is helping herself without waiting her turn!
Pixel and Pickles (ferrets) got loads of new toys and some yummy treats!

The ones that REALLY tore into the gifts the way they were meant to be were the puppies!! Geneva and Ava’s pups had a BLAST!! I do not know who had more fun- the puppies or us watching them!
The kitties got 2 new cat condo tree houses (we got to Custom order them JUST how we wanted at the pet expo we went to this summer!! The kids had so much fun deciding exactly what they wanted!! Everything is made right here in the USA and is made out of strong, solid, hard wood! The gentleman that was the representative for the products climbed all over them to demonstrate how strong they were and how much weight they would support! We were obviously very impressed! And since my kids and my Rotties CLEARLY missed the memo that these were for the cats 😉 lol I am very glad to know how well made they are!
Clip #452 Clip #453 Click here for naughty puppies that are more interested in the wrapping than the gifts 😉 (and more interested in what the kitties got for Christmas than what they got for Christmas! lol
LOVE this photo! One of my new favorite photos!! KUDOS to Liliana, my photographer for nearly ALL of our puppy/pet photos!! She has MANY talents!
Now that everyone has worked up an appetite, time to feast! (I think Ethan is ready to eat!)
