Bonjour tout le monde! C'est moi, Fifty!
Did everyone have a nice holiday? I had the best Christmas ever! Since my mommy let me tell you all about my Thanksgiving, I asked her if I could tell you about my Christmas too.
I knew this Christmas was going to be good because my grandma came to visit and she came all the way from someplace called Texas. I don't know where that is, but Mommy and Daddy said it's really far away.
Last year, we went to my other grandma's house in Auvergne and that was fun, but I like staying at home too (riding in the car is not my favorite). Plus, it seemed like Grandma never stopped cooking so I spent a lot of time hanging out on the steps to the kitchen.
I figure that since people have to walk over me to get in or out, they can't help but to notice me sitting there so they're more likely to put a little something into my bowl. And I can stare at my grandma while she cooks and give her sad, pouty looks. So far, this method has gotten me; turkey, beef, and lamb (that's my new favorite).
On Christmas morning when my mommy was handing out the presents, I couldn't believe it when she put two presents in front of me. TWO! I got so excited unwrapping them that I could hardly stay still long enough to pose for photos.
That's why I look all blurry and fuzzy in that photo, I was too excited to sit still! One of the nice ladies that was visiting with my grandma in September sent me a stuffed toy with big eyeballs, and my grandma got me a monkey crossed with a cow that has hands and feet that squeak when I grab it. It's an odd little thing but it's my new baby and I love it.
That's me with my toy and my baby. I had a so much fun playing with my new toy that it might have been a bit too much fun for the toy....
I ripped it's face off. Oops. My mommy had to take it away from me because she said that I have 'self control' issues. I'm not sure what that means but I'm trying really hard to be gentle with my baby. I don't want what happened to the last one to happen to this one too. So for now, this baby is only for cuddles.
Bonne année tout le monde!
