The Gingerbread Man

Hello Friends!
It's time for Chestnut's annual holiday photos.
As you can see he was not too thrilled. LOL!
Poor baby. Join us to see more!
Oh not this again...:)
This time gingerbread ears? Last year I was Santa Chestnut.
I am not happy being a kitty model.
Go away! I need my sleep time.
Okay, you get one sweet pose.
Whew! I'm glad that is over with.
Love, Chestnut
~*~
Stay warm everyone!
It has been very cold here. Brrrrr...:)
Have a wonderful week!

Haha! What a cutie... I am laughing out loud! We did that with our pups one year and they still haven't forgiven us!

Audra said...

What a priceless face! I love those little Gingerbread men! Chester wasn't having that though...I am afraid my cats would do the same thing, then terrorize the poor Gingerbread men!

Thanks for sharing pictures of your fur baby.

Deb said...

What a face! I think it is good that we don't quite know what he is thinking. :) I see many cats each day and I will say that Mr. Chestnut is one handsome boy. Love your home in all its festiveness. Deb=^..^=x5

What a cutie! I love his long hair. I have always had short haired cats and I just want to fluff Mr. Chestnuts fur. He looks so huggable (except when he has gingerbread ears on).

Oh that is funny Melissa. Glad you captured it, as you can look back and have another laugh or two. Hope all is well...I am a posting fool trying to get it all in before the New year so I actually have a complete year end book. I am hard to keep up with these days LOL!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, I have been gone so much lately I didn't see your last post! Your bedroom looks so pretty with the Christmas touches. The tassel and birds look very pretty in there. I finally got my house posted at almost 2:00 in the morning! lol...I was determined to get it done. I have been gone so much over the past three days. I ended up helping a lady decorate until midnight the other night! Also, I didn't post this on my blog, but the little baby that I posted about around three weeks ago passed away. Her funeral was yesterday...so sad!!

I was cracking up when I saw Chestnut with those gingerbread ears on! The look on his face is so funny! Animals are very expressive!

Have a great day! Kristen

Traci said...

OH Melissa, the pictures are sooo funny!!! I just love his expressions. Thanks for visiting me. The decorating is DONE!! Well, as done as it's going to get.

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

Oh that first picture made me laugh so hard!!

Mississippi Girl said...

What a sweet boy he is!! I'm sure Santa Paws will be good to him this year. My cat, Jasmine, is working overtime to make up for chewing and sitting on wrapped presents and playing soccer with the glass ornaments. She's still on Santa's "undecided" list, but I feel confident she'll be rewarded in the end.

Take care,
Donna

Erin said...

LOL...what a trooper Chestnut is!! :)

My favorite is the first one with the scowl on his face. :)

Moments of Grace said...

Melissa,

Mr. Chestnut is adorable. I think he is such a wonderful, cuddly, spoiled, little baby!!! As are all pets.

My Photo
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
