Look what I found! Great Grandma's antique cedar chest full of my old friends. Lots of Teddy bears that came from Santa's workshop. Grams just couldn't let them go. They have sooo many memories. What fun to get reacquainted!
I helped Gramps draw this year's Christmas card. It's called 'Four calling birds. They originally were Colly birds. They're Eurasian blackbirds about the size of a robin. Gramps has each Colly bird singing parts of a song; Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.
We watched the Seahawks play football. They played the Baltimore Ravens and won! 35 to 6. We decided to play some football ourselves out in the yard. I caught my very first catch. OOF! A football is really heavy. It was also my last catch. Now I'm on the injured list with multiple fractures all over my body.
Gramps is always taking pictures of me. After he went to bed, I thought I'd try my hand at the camera. Whoa! It was heavy. I fell over and it pinned me to the table. Good thing Gramps heard all the racket. I'd still be squished under the camera.
More Goodies! Gramps makes yummy fruitcakes. They have all kinds of dried fruit and nuts in them. There's figs, dates, blueberries, cranberries and three kinds of raisins. Plus, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple. It like cherries the best. Fruitcake goes so fast; he has to make four or five each holiday season.
Today Grams made cookies. She made snicker doodles, ginger snaps and chocolate crinkles. I was the taste tester. Have to make sure they're good enough for Santa. They are. Gramps helped me test them out too. He thinks they're great.
Last night a huge windstorm blew in. Trees were swaying in the wind. Rain poured. All of a sudden, lightning flashed and thunder boomed. Chrismouse and I came straight out of bed. I grabbed a flashlight real quick. The power didn't come back on until 6PM. I sure like electricity.
Today we visited the chicken house. I went for a ride on Roxy. She's really a sweet hen. She knows her name and likes to be picked up and petted. Grams sings her to sleep every night when she puts her to bed.
I went back to the North Pole to give a report to Santa. Lots of bad things happened this week. All the little kids were very good. Santa's sad that they have to suffer because of bad people running around. Hopefully all the good people will still have a merry Christmas regardless of the world's problems.
Elfis returned to the North Pole and visited Santa's reindeer. He hopped on Rudolph's back and they romped through the winter wonderland. Rudolph got some great practice for Christmas Eve. He didn't get off the ground, tho. He needs to lose some weight. (Like the rest of us.)
Every adventure begins with a great cup of coffee. Elfis (Elvis) loves the red cup. When his energy level is at max capacity, we will celebrate the Christmas season in style. Check last months activities. (November) Start at the bottom of the page.
