Star light, star bright...

Oh, Miiiick...we have a present!

"Present? For me?!"

For both of us, Mick. It's from your auntie Shell--do you remember me telling you about how I won the giveaway at The Raspberry Rabbits ? Here's our prize!

"Oh, so that's why you have me posed here--is my fur straight? I don't want Sugie and Harrington to see me looking messy."

You look fine. Let's open it up and show everyone.

It's a handmade star! Isn't it gorgeous?
"Can I chew on it?"
"Not even a nibble?"
"Auntie Shell would let me nibble on it."
No, she wouldn't; she worked very hard on it.
"Well, she won't mind if I chew the wrapping paper, will she?"
You can chew the wrapping paper.
"Good--she sends the best paper. Tell her I said thanks."

But wait, there was more!

Along with the lovely star I won was an envelope, and inside the envelope was...


and a handmade card! YAY!!

and chocolates and tea, and oh, do I feel so spoiled!
Thanks lots, Shell!
(and don't think you're not getting a gift in return for this.. it just might not get to you until after Christmas, though)

A couple of other things to mention before I sign off:

Mickey's meditation room is now official. He says that he can now finally perfect his loaf technique.

Annnnnnnd...we have one more gift to show off:

Meet the newest member of our family: Grandbaby #3, my older stepdaughter's first child.

Name: Christopher Michael

Height: 20"
Date/Time of Birth: 12/9/2010, 3:11pm EST

Picture was taken a few hours after he was delivered by c-section. He's a BIG boy!

Don't you just love presents at Christmas? ;)

What a beautiful star (and lovely bun -- both the cloth one and Mick!) And a very handsome grandbaby! (Deb's gonna have her first grandbaby - a girl in April!)

Lisa said...

YAY Congrats on all accounts!!! The baby IS a big boy, but that's certainly not a bad thing! Mickey looks a little disgruntled about not being allowed to chew the star :-/

The Fab Furs said...

What lovely gifts! Mickey just wanted to give the star "the chew of approval". Congratulations on the grandbaby!
