Christmas Donkey

Remember I had told you all that I was not in the mood to put up the Christmas Tree. Mr. and Kids were fine with this. A few days before Christmas Mr. and D said they had some where they needed to go. This is what they came back with. Pedro the Christmas Donkey. Complete with Santa hat and red nose. I laughed so hard. He is a Pinata for those not familiar with them. They are very popular in the Southwest. They are always at birthday parties. It put me in the Christmas mood. We hung him up in the living room and piled the presents under him. Christmas morning after all the gifts had been opened we all got to take a swing at Pedro.
Don't they look so excited. I hope everyone's teenagers look this happy.(lol). D has those devil eyes ready to do some damage with that drum mallet. I was going to use one of Santa's golf clubs. That didn't go over very well. S. is just so darn happy to be alive. Santa had filled up Pedro with candy. Like we needed anymore sweets in the house.

In the end, Pedro bit the dust. Poor Pedro. He just may show up next year. I think we have started a new tradition................


My beautiful Dog Daughter loved all her new toys. Isn't it crazy how we are all so goofy over our pets. She is the easiest one to buy for and she always loves everything she get. I never have to return anything, cause it is the wrong size or color.

She was so happy that she had to thank Santa for everything.

What a fun new Christmas Tradition you have just started.
By the look on 'The Teenagers' faces I don't think I would have stood too close to the donkey in case they thought they might take a swing at you instead!!LOL
At least your Doggy Daughter was happy.

Oh Poor Pedro! As the mom of a couple of teenagers, I think they've cornered the market on 'that look'.
BTW, sounds like a fab tradition to me!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who didn't put up a tree this year. My teenagers didn't care too much either. Love the Pinata, to fun.
