No. No snow here in Texas. But this picture (sent in a surprise email to Beth on Christmas) was taken in Lansing, NY by the Lacko family...the special family I mentioned in my last post. Wow! This is where I could be living! But a year and a half ago the Lackos found me in a parking lot. Then they found a note about a "Missing Bear" and they were kind enough to mail me home to Texas.
Bears on a Snowy Bow!
Look how fun! These are the two little bears we sent the Lacko kids to thank them for returning me. These bears seem to like adventure as much as I do. Last spring I saw pictures of them in Disneyworld! Now that would have been a lot more fun than posing with vegetables. (That was Beth's idea, not mine) But Beth promises to give me more excitement in 2014. We shall see!
It's Christmas Eve and time to enjoy friends and family and do some remembering. I'm thinking about the Lacko Family who found me when I was lost in Lake Placid, NY! They let me travel with them on their vacation and then sent me home to Texas with a new friend. Here I am with Rose, getting excited about this sparkly gift!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!
You have no idea how hard this is!
Choosing the paper is hard
enough, then I have to cut and
Then, I have to decide which color ribbon! Sometimes I get totally annoyed and I just dive in and get comfy until I'm in a better mood.
Then I tie a few bows.
And then I climb up on a stack of presents and admire my work. Most people don't get to do that.
Where am I?
Well, I'm back in Texas now, but I was in New Orleans. I went for Thanksgiving, not Mardi Gras.
In this picture I'm far away from the French Quarter. I'm not posing with beads or parade confetti. I'm sitting on top of a cypress knee!
It's hard to see me, but I'm in this photo. I love cypress trees and I love these wonderful knees, that grow up around them! I had the perfect spot for watching the ducks in the water and the people strolling by in the park. What a great place to be in the afternoon on Thanksgiving!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
