The Holiday Season

"Shoppers rush home with their treasures..." That about sums up yesterday!
Now my shopping is all done, but my mother-in-law and I went to Palm Springs, California yesterday, to help her step dad find a gift for her mother.
Vance and I haven't been out much in the past month, so I took him, but expected him to be a bit rusty on commands and general public manners. He did wonderful! I couldn't be more pleased. I thought for sure certain things (food on the floor at Walmart, major crowds at Kohls, and noisy children bouncing balls all around him) would be distractions for him and I would need to correct him a few times, but no! He left the kids alone, was calm when petted (He is really people distracted, odd I know, but he gets so excited if a person even looks at him) and was calm around my Mother-in law's elderly mom and step dad. All in all, he impressed me tremendously and he may be maturing yet!
This weekend is Christmas and since I am unable to go home for Christmas, we are spending it with Adam's cousins. I thought about bringing Vance but I found out that the cousins kids are really allergic to animals and have lots of allergies, so Vance-a-loo has to stay home this weekend :(

I hope everyone is ready for Christmas and I hope all of you are able to spend it with family and friends and those you love.

Merry Christmas!
