December 23, 2019: When mommy told us that she used to get pretty sick for Christmas, I didn’t take her very seriously. I mean, how bad could it have been? I was wrong. I shouldn’t have laughed at her. If this is her idea of another family tradition, she’s crazy. The other day I woke up with a frog in my throat. Then a horse took over my voice. Then I started barking like a dog. And now I have a fever. I might not be able to make any of the Christmas parties. I’m worried. Jameson is worried. I’ve been waiting all year for the parties, especially for Santa! Mommy gave me a special shower without showering and then she took me outside in the cold. I’m still confused, but drastic times call for drastic measures!
