Hullo! Life got kind of busy before Christmas and so I didn't have a chance to post too much! We had an Advent calendar up... every little elf had a sack with... chocolate! Yummm
The tree did get put up eventually... whew!
And we had lots of wood stock-piled to cozy up in front of the fireplace. In case you're wondering... the fireplace surround is... yes... that 1970s lava-rock stuff. Ugh! It is even worse than the brass chandelier!
Of course, all my Christmas stuffie friends came out of hiding. They all have such fetching sweaters!
And... on December 24, I got three letters in the mail from my pals!!
This one was from Little Fox - he did up a super creative card with pictures of his 2014 adventures. Thanks!
And then there was a card from Bob T. Bear - Thanks!
And finally... a card from Jerry & Ben -with a super pretty red bird in snowy branches. We don't have any snow... at least not so far.
Now... on Christmas Day, I noticed this bear hanging out under the tree... all wrapped up with a pretty bow on his head. He says he's a gift for Grampa. But he looks awfully familiar to me?? Does anyone recognize him? Is he related to anyone we know?
And there were two presents under the tree for me!!
Ohhh... a book... This sounds like a sad story - the Little Teddy Left Behind!! Oooohhhh... but Mama says I'll have to read it to figure out what happens. I wonder if she'll ever write stories about me that will get published?
And then... of course...
The Sherlock Holmes outfit!! I am such a lucky bear!
