' Tyler, This little dog was made by your great, great grandmother, Emma Ostrander, for all her grand children, great and great, great grand children. This is the last dog left (just for you!).'
As the story goes, Emma Ostrander made all these corduroy dogs at once. And as new babies were born in the family they got a corduroy dog. Kyle's dad received a dog and Kyle received a dog when they were young.
Kyle's mom and dad had no clue that there were any dogs left. I mean surely they had all been given out by now. But what a 'great great' surprise we got Christmas Eve!
And as the letter said ... Tyler's "Corduroy Dog" is the last dog that had been made. And that is the story of the "Corduroy Dog".

Christmas was a little different this year since Kyle had to work Christmas Day. We started the fun Christmas Eve at Kyle's mom and dad's house, where we meet the rest of his family for the 'Secret' Santa gift exchange and dinner. Of course, Tyler and Zack (Tyler's 2 yr old cousin) got an abundance of toys.
Since Kyle had to work Christmas day, we decided that Tyler would get to play with Santa presents Christmas morning and then we would have the Family Christmas (Kyle, Tyler and myself) that evening when Kyle got off of work.
Tyler was so funny walking out Christmas morning. He just stood at the tree looking at all the toys. Can't you tell that he just woke up!
Tyler decided that he would rather climb over all the presents than open them.
We had a very Merry Christmas and we hope that you did too!
