You Make the Call....

Hi there!! Dory here reporting from the sports capital of the world. We have the Patriots who have a perfect season record so far, starring our hero TOM BRADY!And we are oh so serious about baseball here - or is that spelled "series-ous". Yep, our very own Red Sox have won the WORLD SERIES!!!! We are very proud and happy that our hometown ball players brought home the World Series trophy today. You guys ROCK!!

SO one fun thing about sports telecast when they used to do a segment called "YOU MAKE THE CALL" - the TV guys would show a football clip and asked the viewers what call the referees made.

Our objective here is I'm going to show you some photos I took around our house yesterday and you my dear readers will have to "MAKE THE CALL".... So here we go:

The back story is this, my mom has been making about 100 handmade cards each year for friends and family since college. This year mom decided not only to hand make her cards, but the cards we are sending to our DWB friends!! EGADS!!!!! Yesterday was the official start of card making season in our house.

There were "in process" Christmas cards and craft equipment on the the couch and coffee table in the den. There were cards drying on the book case in the living room...
On the occasional table in the living room...
On the living room couch (and I'm not even allowed on this)...
On the hutch...
and oh DEAR DOG!! There they are dozens and dozens of "in process" Christmas cards strewn all over MY CRATE!!! Is nothing sacred?

So readers - YOU MAKE THE CALL. Is my human a creative and ambitious Christmas Card making MVP??? OR is she just simply lost her mind???

You make the call, but my vote is going in the lost her mind category!!

I really don't like those red sox, but congrats. I cannot believe your mom is making a billion zillion cards like that, she might be a tiny bit crazy!

Maggie & Mitch said...

Hurrah for the Sox! whoooohoooooooooo
Your mom is not crazy! Mine got this strange idea yesterday to put up the Christmas tree for the very same reason - cards! Do you think both of our moms need help, Dory?! hehehehe

Love ya lots,

Gus said...

UM...maybe you guys need to move to the desert out here...I can't even bear to think of Christmas! My vote is in the "needs reality support" column. (nutsy!)

Ruby Bleu said...

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi Dory! Sorry I haven't been able to visit your blog for a long time. I've got lots of blogs to catch up on! Hehe.

Hi, Dory.
I am a Patriots fan... but I can't say the same about Red Sox!
I am not so sure what to say but I think my mom is going to do the same thing here in my house!
This is going to be the first time my mom makes cards so lets see how it goes!
Have a good night

Holy doodle dogs! That's one massive operation. Are you sure your mom hasn't gone into business with Hallmark?


Ferndoggle said...

Wow that's a lot of work! MVP of Card Making for sure. She's gonna make the rest of us look bad :o).

Congrats on your World Series win! We're looking forward to the Pats/Colts game on Sunday. Should be a good one!

Sherman, Penny & Lola

Johann The Dog said...

Big congrats to the Red Sox - can you tell I'm soliciting for Colts fans, BOL!!!! DOG! How do you stay out of those cards, I'd have them shredded all over the house - and I hate to think of what Gracie would do...Woofs, Johann

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Dory, What day in December is your b-day? My mom's is the 18th.


Agatha and Archie said...

Hoory for our teams!! Go see our blog we were in the Red Sox rolling rally!!!!!! We think your Mom is wicked creative!!!( and what's so nice is that we don;t have to explain "wicked!!!!!!!" Love A+A ( Agatha has a crush on Tom Brady)

Amici said...

Wowzers!! That is a LOT of card making!! But I am sure those cards will turn out great and families, friends and DWB peep/pups will really enjoy them. :)

From another fellow New Englander...GO SOXS!!! Now we just need to cheer for the Pats and cross our fingers that they'll have a great season. :)

Dory, sorry your Mom took over the house but it sounds like she's gotta do what she's gotta do. :)

Maybe you'll get some treats out of it! :)

The Brat Pack said...

Dear Dory,

Your mother is making our mother lose sleep at night over being card-inferior. We don't even have an acceptable DWB calendar photo yet.


Ben_Benjamin said...

Wow Dory, look at gals working so hard on it. My lazy bum bum mom still haven't start yet. Gotta give her a big bite at butt!!!

Balboa & Mommy said...

I hope we're on your mailing list this year 'cause we bet those cards are gonna be cool! She's still lost her mind though ;-)

I would say she's very creative and very nice for making homemade cards, but I think I truly believe she's crazy. Pretty soon there's going to be no place to sit or sleep!!!!
