Hey everyone, it’s Betty Foxx filling in for Cookie. She’s busy working at the boutique helping our awesome clients pick the perfect gift for their pampered pooch. We’ve got a great collection of fancy ceramic pet food dishes if you’re looking for a little something to tuck under your tree for the furry friend in your life.
Anyway, back to why I'm here. Cookie was yapping my ear off the other day about how Christmas was a magical time of year. It isn’t that I disagree. Heck, I’m not a Grinch. I’m all about how Christmas doesn’t come from a store, and miracles can happen on any street, not just 34th in New York city.
What caught my attention was the wistful gleam in Cookie’s eyes. Now, that gleam could have been from the twinkling colored lights or the sparkling ornaments, but I think Cookie was wishing for her own Christmas miracle.
At first I thought she was thinking about her hunky ex, Grey. Who could blame her? He’s hot stuff! But then she got to talking about her childhood memories with her cousin Carol, the pet shrink, and the crazy family dinners that lasted for hours. Then she went on about how they’d play board games into the night, laughing and arguing. Listening to her share about how close those girls were growing-up, it’s hard to believe those two are still carrying on that silly feud. But they are. They're both hotheaded and stubborn, neither one willing to be the first to admit they miss the other one.
It got me thinking, I bet there’s something I could do to help reunite these two and create a Christmas miracle right here in Laguna. If only they’d collaborate on solving one of these murders, then they’d have to talk to each other! Right?
What about you? Do you have any family Christmas traditions that you miss?
