The last day of 2012 is here.  It sure came a lot faster than we expected!  We're not going to waste time making silly resolutions but instead we're going to look at 2013 as the year to either idly sit back and view things in the same ole manner and not take any action...
Or to leap on opportunities with so much quickness that you scare your mommy achieve something fun and satisfying...
We have plans to leap on opportunities and maybe even create a few ourselves. We know it'll scare our mommy be a very rewarding and fulfilling New Year!

What are you plans for the New Year?

Happy New Year's Eve! 
Remember to party responsibly!

Happy Sadieday!  It's the last Sadieday of 2012 and while our reflections of the year include sadness and heartbreak such as losing our sweet sisfur Sadie, we have decided to not dwell on the bad but to look at the good.  For instance, we were blessed to share our lives with Sadie and her special spirit...
She taught us that every day is to be appreciated and anticipated...
And that there are adventures down every path you take...
And of course she taught us to be happy and show it with a smile...
Our wish for you in the New Year is that you find your own joy, adventure and happiness and be sure to smile every day!  As this past year has taught us, we never know what tomorrow will bring so appreciate every single moment!

We hope you have a Happy Sadieday and wonderful last weekend of 2012!

PeeS:  We want to continue to spread positivity on Sadiedays so if you have suggestions or ideas of ways to do this, please let us know in the comments or email us at beadedtail at yahoo dot com.  Thank you!

Welcome to the last Friday Features of 2012!  Since Congress doesn't seem to have a plan to fix the fiscal cliff which is going to totally affect my job in the coming weeks, today's features don't follow any plan either other than they are items that caught my fancy!  I hope you enjoy my picks!

Khyra, this one is for you!

Santa Claws was very good to us this year!  We got toys, treats, crinkly paper, bags and new stinky goodness dishes for me and my sisfur...
Wonder why Santa didn't bring me a birdie though...
Mommy got nice presents from her Secret Santa too!  Her BBArtisans teammate LeAnn was her Secret Santa this year and sent her Chai tea (which Mommy loves!) and a very cute kitty oven mitt which was already put to use when Mommy made cookies...
Since we're not allowed on the counters when baking or cooking is going on, I'll just have to wait to get a closer look at the oven mitt...
Okay, I waited long enough, let me just pull it a little closer...
We're very thankful for everything we received this year!  Of course we're most thankful for having a warm house filled with love and foods and also all our friends from around the world!  We appreciate all of you!

We hope you're filled with gratitude too!

PeeS:  The recipe for the cookies above is here.  Mommy's don't quite look the same but Daddy says they're yummy!

Happy Sadieday!  Christmas is almost here and although Sadie left for the Bridge six months ago today we still feel her with us especially since she loved Christmas so much.  As we were looking through photos of her we found two that were so typical Sadie we thought we'd share with you.  This photo was taken on December 20, 2009...
This photo was taken on December 20, 2011...
She was caught snooping on the same day two years apart!  Santa always brought her lots of presents since she was such a good girl and of course Santa couldn't resist her sweet face...
We hope you are smiling now because we sure are!  As always, be sure to spread those smiles around!  

We hope you have a Happy Sadieday and a great weekend!

Christmas came early in our house when the man in blue pants brought a surprise package just for us!
The package smelled like a handsome Mancat and nip!  That's an irresistible combination...
We checked every inch for the Mancat but didn't find him...
But we did find the nip which made us crazy pants...
VERY crazy pants...
We also got pawesome crinkly paper...
There were other pressies but we were so wild over the nip toys, crinkly paper and pom pom balls that Mommy put the rest of the package away until Christmas Eve so we didn't over do it. She's a party pooper. Anyway, we'd like to thank JB, Gaia, Chester, CocoBean, Charli and the handsome Armani for the pressies!
We absolutely love everything!  We can't thank you enough for making our Christmas extra special! 

What are you thankful for today?

We hope you have a crazy pants sort of day!
Angel & Isabella

It's Tortie Tuesday!  We're just a week away from Christmas and I'm ready, are you?  In case Santa Claws hasn't got my present(s) yet, I'm being extra good by helping out with the laundry...
Of course Santa already knows that since I'm a Tortie I'm good all year but it doesn't hurt to score more presents points.

Hope you have a warm laundry on your tummy kind of day!

Our weekend was a rainy one but the rain makes the birdies very active which makes for great Birdie TV...

We hope you were able to take us up on our Sadieday challenge to make the weekend a better one by doing something that made your heart happy in honor of our angel sisfur Sadie's birthday.  Our daddy took foods and treats to the shelter while Mommy waited in the car.  She can't handle going in since it makes her sad that she can't bring all the animals home but at least we know they have plenty of food and treats...

If you took the challenge, let us know what you did so we can smile too!  We can all use extra smiles these days!

We hope you have a great week!

PeeS:  This whole post was done on Mommy's phone because our power went out in the middle of putting it together.  We're crossing our paws that it works!

It's Sadieday but we have very heavy hearts because it would have been Sadie's 12th birthday today.  Between that and the horrible news of the recent shootings has our mommy all leaky and all of us heartbroken.  Sadie hated it when Mommy got leaky and would always try to get as close to her as possible and try to be a lap dog...
We know Sadie is running around like a puppy celebrating her birthday across the Bridge with a big ole smile on her face...
Since we know Sadie wouldn't want us to be sad, we have a challenge for everybuddy today.  We'd like for you to do something that makes your heart happy.  Examples can be to contact somebuddy you haven't heard from in awhile, let somebuddy know how much you appreciate them or even take cookies to your neighbors with or without fur.  Our mommy and daddy are going to take dog and cat food and treats to an animal shelter today in honor of Sadie since she sure loved her treats...
We hope you take us up on our challenge and make yourself and somebuddy else smile today in honor of our sisfur Sadie!  If you do, please let us know!

Happy Birthday to our sisfur Sadie!  She'd love for you to have a treat today in her honor too!

Enjoy your Sadieday and weekend!
