My Christmas was lovely...I got to go to my dear dears, The Parks, because everyone was "well"....and it was very special and great fun, too! I took some pictures but I need to lighten up a few of them and then I will post a couple....
I love all my presents that I got, but there was one very very special one that came from a very very "special" person across the pond....and here it is...... He is one cute bear! And I love that he is part of the Guards Of Buckingham Palace. His name is "George" and he is really really special too, because he is a limited edition bear...so I am thrilled to be the proud recipient of this very dear sweet person....And he has the full approval of the 'man of the house', too....Sweetie..... I hope all of you had the most wonderful Christmas, and now, on to New Years Eve and 2007!
More To Come......
I am laughing at the pic of Sweetie checking out the new bear! My cats always have to approve of anything new around here too.
On the 23rd, I bought them a new covered litter box with a plastic swinging door to go in and out. Now, maybe they won't leave so many surprises (both solid and wet) outside the confines of the litter box! I thought I might have to teach them how to use it, but luckily they figured it out!
Re your comment: I guess I worded that wrong; the season is not really over for me until January 2-3 either, but I meant the buying and opening presents portion of the holiday. Now I just have to spend my holiday money and gift cards!! Woohoo!
GOD WAS LISTENING AND HEARD OUR PYAYERS.
I'M SO GLAD EVERYONE WAS WELL AND YOU WERE WITH YOUR DEAR DEARS, THE PARKS FAMILY. I KNOW IT MADE EVERYONE'S CHRISTMAS EXTRA SPECIAL.
Oh he is adorable, I love him. So glad you did get to go to the Parks and I assume you carved as we discussed lol.
Our turkey turned out fine, I made Mr Mark do the honours though :)
I love them, excellent photos of George and the Mister..... :-)
My mum always told me I was 'Special' [chuckle]
How cute is he?? And love the picture of Sweetie sniffin' him up, that's always so cute when the "owner" of the house approves of the new additions. :)
Happy Day after, I'm glad you had a good one and that you can now rest in the after glow! :)
Sweetie making friends? Looking for contraband? Cookie crumbs? I had to say NO to yet another party tonight. Fun can be a lot of work!
What a cute bear!! Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas my friend!
I have some news, I maybe tagging along with hubby to LA in February! I'll let you know!! :)
Sweetie has a new friend! And he is darling. What a nice gift...and I am sure it was very special getting it from someone so far away. I am glad you had a nice Chistmas holiday Naomi!
Oh my gosh, what an adorable bear that is. Naomi, I'm so glad you were able to get out & visit friends. Sweetie, looks absolutely precious...as usual. :)
George has found a home! How cute!!
Happy Holidays to YOU, dear Naomi.
I'm glad your Christmas was nice, and I hope the remainder of this holiday season continues to be good all the way until you ring in the New Year.
2007 is nearly upon us. Another year to get to know our blog buddies better. I like that idea, don't you?
Lots of love and good cheer to you.
So glad you were able to spend your holiday with special friends! Love the bear :)
Here from Micheles,
What an adorable bear, he's so dashing!
I love your cat checking it out, he's beautiful too, or maybe sharp would be a better word, since the cat is a he!
Glad you had a great Christmas & best wishes for the New Year to you too.
Ohhh, I like George! Lucky him to have such a good home and a warm, furry Sweetie to keep him warm!
Your teddy bears collection just keeps growing!
I'm glad you had a good Christmas with close friends.. that's the best kind.
Wow - George has certainly had some admiring comments :-)
Great to hear that you've had a lovely Christmas and thanks for the cute pics!
Off to 2007 then, but first to thank you as it has been wonderful to meet you in 2006:-)
I'm so glad you had a good Christmas!
Your bear is lovely.
Has Sweetie now accepted your new house guest? I hope so, he is a super bear.
I am glad you went out for dinner. Have a wonderful holiday season
OH MY GOSH! As a bear connoisseur (haha!) I have GOT to say that is one fantastic specimen!!! Absolutely toooooo cute! I bet he's really fine quality too -- if the Royals are promoting him! WOW! You lucky LUCKY girl!
Now... ON to New Years Eve!!! (can't wait to hear about it!)
So glad you got to visit with the Parks for Christmas Naomi!! That is wonderful!! I love the bear. He is cute. Now you have two George's, the plant and the bear! So glad Sweetie shows his approval. His opinion counts!!
Very cute bear! :) I'm glad to see you've had a good Christmas. All the best for the new year!
Oh, I'm so glad you got to go. :)
And I LOVE that bear. So much personality. What a great bear!
Looks like he and Sweetie will be good buddies. :)
The Sweetie sniff of approval...is that followed by bear being catted?
Michele sent me,
Hope you have a fabulous 2007.
Christmas here was everything that I'd hoped it would be.
And I'm so glad you got to be with Betty and enjoy your day.
Love your bear, but even cutie is Sweetie seeing if the bear passes inspection.
Hugs to you, Naomi.
I'm glad to hear you had a great Christmas. Your special bear is sooo cute. It's always nice when special people remember each other.
I have enjoyed reading your blog this last year and look forward to more in the new year. Wishing you, your family and friends a Happy New Year.
Did your beautiful cat make the guard smile? I thought they weren't supposed to smile~,:^)
Stuff from across the pond is cool!
Merry days after!
Ah yes, Mr. Sweetie must have the final say on any new creatures in the house. Our cats were exceptionally well behaved this year... not too many bows were chewed, only a few ornaments knocked off and when the present opening commenced, they found places to sleep.
Too much food, not enough sleep and much to much laziness around here right now. It rained on Christmas Day and we had a tornado watch. It has been cooler, but still not really anything to be called cold.
My brother got my parents a DVD player and recorder with a VHS slot as well. So now I need to get the instructions down to record and burn some DVD's of the bowl games.... he said he wanted football games... didn't matter if it were college or professional, good or bad... he is craving good American football.
He traveled from Munich to Vienna on Christmas Eve, had Christmas Day at home and left the 26th for Dresden.
So glad you could spend some time with your friends.
Our boys are the same ... have to check everything new.
Our boys are the same ... have to check everything new.
I'm glad that you had a nice Christmas.
You know, I think Sweetie wants to try the hat on! :)
Love the bear! The costume is so adorable!
Love the bear! The costume is so adorable!e!
I am glad you had a lovely Christmas, dear Naomi! The bear looks so cute! And Sweetie, ah! he is always adorable!
