Default Bounce's first visit with Santa

First, allow me to apologize to my friends. I'm not one who is comfortable discussing personal matters online but I've been experiencing some turbulent times, which is why I've been away from SM and FB for the most part. I"m sure I've missed some marker issues and I feel very badly about that. This has just been a roller coaster time for me and it's hard to 'put on a happy face'. Don't mean to be mysterious, let me just say that I have no health issues, thank goodness.

On the bright side, of course, is my little girl, Bounce! She's so funny. She wakes me up every morning by jumping on my chest and licking me to death. This is her way of telling me it's time for breakfast. She's almost 100% pad trained - again I did it in an unconventional way, but it worked for us.

Today, I took her to see Santa. This is the same Santa who saw Bonnie every year. He came over to greet her and I told him that Bonnie left us and that this was Bounce. He gave me a big hug and said he was very sorry about Bonnie. Then he focused all his attention on Bounce, chatting with her and petting her. She wasn't so sure about him at first, but I think she warmed to him.

So, here are this year's first pictures of Bounce with the wonderful Santa at Bloomingdale's! Happy Holidays to all!

Linda - love both shots of Bounce and Santa. You look fabulous in the one you're in. Sorry things are so rough. Hoping the new year will bring more joy. Of course Bounce is always there to make you smile.

Thanks, Michelle. Holidays always seem to bring out the worst of the worst, lol. The good cheer sometimes is too much to take...maybe my attitude will change by then. Really hope so.

The pictures are nice, aren't they, Sue? If you take Tyler to Bloomie's, make sure you go during the week, the good Santa is there then. Not to say anything against the weekend Santa, but we've always gone during the week, and this Santa is awesome. He was really very touched when he heard about Bonnie. You know how Santas, Easter Bunnies, Mickey Mouse, they all have their shtick and pretty much stick to it. He went out of character and really felt bad and offered sympathy.

Oh I didn't know you were having such a hard time, I'm so sorry to hear that!!

Love the pictures! Great pic of you both - Bounce looks a little unsure but I'm sure she got over it quickly!

Linda, the picture of you and Bounce with Santa is perfect. Bounce looks adorable and you look as pretty as ever.

I also love the picture of Bounce and Santa together ... she looks so cute and adorable. And, Santa looks so warm hearted in both of the pictures.

I am so sorry you are going through a rough time. I've have always admired you for being such a strong woman. I know how calm you stayed for darling Bonnie ... even though your heart was breaking. I hope you know though that it is okay to cry when we are hurting so bad.

As 2013 draws near ... I wish you all the happiness in the world, Linda. I hope 2013 brings you many joyful moments.

I love you, Linda. And, I love that Bounce can make you smile every day ... even when you might not feel like smiling. Sending you warm hugs and love ...

It's hard going through a first Christmas without your fluff. I hope Bounce will bring you back... Bonnie is watching from heaven and wishing mommy to be happy.

Bounce helps me get through the tough times, Stacy! She sure is a little love! Yes, she was a little unsure. I think she was confused - who is that person with all the white hair? Is that my mom???

Thanks, Marie. I love you, too. Yes, Bounce does make me smile. And right now, she's telling me it's time to go to bed, since I have to be up at 7:15 tomorrow...
