Hi everyone, it’s Cassandra here! I’m glad to be up and about and able to write this post, that bug I had was nasty! Luckily, it was quick to go away, and I was feeling better in time to enjoy Christmas and all it’s festivities. We here at the “Little Friends” house have decided that we must have been VERY good this year, we all got some wonderful things from both mom and dad and Santa Claus.
We each got a big gift from Santa and some clothes. Mom made each of us a pair of pants and a t-shirt, and then each of us got some items that were things catered to our interests, or things we had asked for. You know what the best part about getting clothes in this house is? We’re all about the same size, so we can share all of this fun stuff!
Without further ado, some pictures of what we got. Mom told us all to each pick out one of our new outfits to put on and she would take each of our pictures with our Christmas goodies in front of the big tree. Up first–Rebecca!
When we first got up, the four of us went running to the living room. Rebecca’s big present was right in the middle of everything, a big pink bicycle with a big bow on it. She was so excited!
Here she is with the rest of what she got–her new meet outfit, those adorable pink pj’s, a cute stuffed dog, a giant candy bar and two books, one of which is a book of love spells from the TV show “Charmed”. Look out Billy Winkle, she’s coming to put a spell on you! 😉
Kit wanted to be next. She got not one, but two American Girl dolls, Isabelle and Julie in her original outfit! I thought they were both really cute. She knows how much I like Julie, so she told me I could play with her once in a while when she wasn’t playing with her. How nice was that?!?!
Kit was so happy when she opened up the box with her new meet outfit, she started to cry. “I finally have one!” If you remember, she didn’t before, and she was really sad about it. She also got a pair of cute pj’s and slippers, a giant teacup and saucer and two books, one on etiquette and another all about tea. We’ve been teasing her that she’s been watching a little too much Downton Abbey.
One thing that Marie-Grace had asked Santa for was a guitar. She didn’t really think he’d bring it though, she was afraid it might be too big for his sleigh. But he did! She was all smiles when she opened it up. She’s been playing it off and on since yesterday, mom has been showing her a few chords and such, she’s not half bad. She will start lessons in January about the same time Rebecca starts her ice skating lessons. Good thing we live in town close to things!
She got some really fun things too-that gorgeous sweater outfit she has on, I think it looks really good on her, it makes the blue in her eyes really stand out. She also got some pretty teal pj’s with matching slippers, a book about diamonds (I told her I would like to read it when she’s done with it!), another book about wildlife, and a toy horse. She’s a little horse crazy right now and can’t wait to go riding in the spring.
I got all sorts of really neat stuff–I got Julie’s original meet outfit and her birthday dress. I LOVE Julie, I think she is so cool, and I love learning about the 70’s. Mom and I talk a lot about it since that was when she was growing up. Do you see that red thing in the front of the picture? That’s called a ViewMaster. I noticed it when I was reading a blog about the 70’s, and I asked mom if she knew what it was. She said she did and that she had one when she was a little girl too! I was really excited to see that I got one for Christmas, you look in to it and you can see pictures that look like they are 3-D. As they said in the 70’s-“FAR OUT!” I also got a giant candy bar and two books. The one is called “Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader”, it has all sorts of fun trivia in it.
Mom said she really likes the white shirt I’m holding up from Julie’s outfit because she had one just like it when she was a kid. She said they are very comfy too. She even dug through some old school pictures she had to show me one of her in a shirt very similar as well. It made me giggle to see her as a little girl.
After I opened my presents, I was a little confused. The other girls had all gotten a big present, and I didn’t see one for me. My first thought was “Oh no, was I bad this year?!” Then mom called me out to the kitchen. My present was waiting out there for me…
A PUPPY!!!! The cutest little Pomeranian puppy in the whole wide world!!!! I couldn’t believe it, I’ve been wanting a dog of my own, and now I have it. I decided to name him Chester after the dog on the TV show “The Nanny”, he was a Pomeranian too. Mom says I have to take care of him by feeding him, walking him and cleaning up the dog poo he leaves in the yard. Not too thrilled about that last part, but I love Chester so much, it will be worth it.
Mom decided we needed one last picture of all of us together, so she had us gather around the fancy gold tree in the dining room. See that game in the front of the picture? Wednesday afternoon when the mail came, there was this big package. When we opened it up, we found the game with a card-from Samantha! She said that she was having a lot of fun touring around England and seeing all of the history there. She also said she hopes to be able to come for a visit in the summer. I hope so!
We had a wonderful day yesterday with all kinds of food and family visiting. I hope all of you did too. Our weekend is packed full as well with get togethers with more family and friends. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! (mom had to help me make it in color!)
