One is Never Enough....

These are my Cousins Kinder, Lily the Mouse, and Betsy.
We had a great time meeting in San Diego!
I thought Kinder was wonderful
so I asked my person if we could adopt one just like him!
Pretty soon, we will have
1) 1 button jointed bear (Mabel)
2) 1 button jointed mouse (Chelsea)
3) 1 cotter pin jointed bear (Garen)

And Our Family Photo Will Be Uniquely Similar To This One!

My Craggy Moor Cousins

On December 29, 2009
I had a chance to meet with some Craggy Moor Cousins
living in San Diego.
These are very special cousins
because my person saw Cousin Betsy in San Diego,
and then found me waiting for her at the Craggy Moor.
Here We Are:
Mabel, Betsy, Lily, and Kinder
at our first meeting and group photo.

We met in San Diego at a place called Seaport Village.
Seaport village is an outdoor shopping area
with different "village style" buildings for each shop.
Seaport Village is by the bay,
with an inland cove where ships dock.

We took a walk around Embarcadero Park
to see the ocean and city scapes.







This shop is in the style of a California mission,
but all of the shops are uniquely designed for an eclectic feel.




We posed with the bay and a wharf style restaurant
along the bayside sidewalk.






My San Diego Cousins:
Kinder, Lily and Betsy




The Craggy Moor Reunion













Aren't we cute?







Our people stopped and had lunch.
They talked and talked and talked!
People can be so chatty!
I must have nodded off
because soon it was time to say "good bye"
to our new San Diego friends and cousins.






I love the Coronado Bay Bridge!












What great views!







My person and I meandered through the "village"
back out to the front to meet our ride.








I can't believe I'm in San Diego!








I found a blue pond by a restaurant.






























And some pretty flowers in a planter behind an old brick wall.





Flowers!
On December 28th!
Imagine that!













On the way out,
I found a pressed penny machine,
and got a pressed penny souvenir.
My person said that was all that was going to fit our bag
for the trip home!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!! Is the camera on?
Hey! Flash in my eyes....
Is this better?
We wish you a Merry Christmas....


...and a tasty one, too!
(is this house edible?)


Pretty Christmas colors and bright candies!
Done the American way...
from a kit.
NO BAKING required.
Read all directions carefully before assembly.
Make sure resident 5 year olds and trolls
do not eat the building materials.


I got a brand new doll for Christmas!




She was on top of my person's
very nicely wrapped package.



Did you have a jolly dolly holiday?



And a beary nice Christmas?




Merry Christmas!







Fun in the Sun

December 23, 2009 I'm visiting this place called Sun Diego
cause there is so much sun in the sky
and the plants are always green!
I found a pretty flower out in the yard!


Is it a hi-bis-cus
Saying "hello" to me?
It sure is pink and tropcial looking!




And then I layed back on the brick
to soak in the warmth of the sun.
And that is called getting a "tan".



My person said I was quite brown and well done
enough as it was, and I didn't need to be more "tan".
So I put my poncho back on.




The juniper bush and everything around was still green, too.
I met a sea gull guarding the greenery.




And saw a spider web from the base the sea gull
perched on, to a nearby bush.


You can't see this in New Mexico,
and especially not in December!

Merry and Bright

Here we are, getting ready for Christmas! I got new lemon yellow bows for my ears
to match my festive knit poncho!

Chelsea was sad when she arrived
because she realized that she had left her scarf behind!
It was quickly sent in the mail,
and now there is a smile on her face, too!

We hope all our new and old friends
have a bright and Merry Christmas!
