Sunday catch up...

I don't know what Mom's problem is lately with keeping up with my blog and all my blogging buddies. Our good friend, and fellow Yankee fan, Petey gave us a super fabulous award on Thanksgiving, which was, oh, a MILLION days ago. Mom is just now posting about it. sheesh. We thank you Petey and would love to give this to ALL of our friends because we really are so thankful for each and every one of you.

Some other things that need to be caught up on is that we are sad to report our uncle does not live with us anymore. He was our super cool roommate and now he is moving to CALIFORNIA! To the beach. Maybe someday we can go there and finally see the ocean, but not go in it because water is REALLY FREAKIN SCARY. So Mom had another room to fill with crap stuff since he has moved.

You all saw the 'fainting' couch that she put in there. I kinda like it actually.

Then she got this cabinet to display some of her favorite Pyrex that she collects, and her bazillion cookbooks.

I like hanging out in there, but the little couch is so small that if I want to hang out with Mom I pretty much HAVE to sit by Tanner. Tanner NEVER leaves her side, its like she has a fat parasite or something. ANYWAY...

Christmas has also sploded at our house.

And yes, we have TWO trees. Mom is a little nutty that way.

So I think that catches you up on what is going on around here. I am kind of upset with the lack of ME in this post, so we will fix that soon. We also have not yet been given the football toy from Jake and Fergi, so video of us destroying that should be coming soon. Hopefully she gives it to me tonight to distract me from my Steelers who are playing without their first or SECOND QB, argh.

Two trees, huh. We will be lucky to get one what with living with Ms. I will do it tomorrow.

That couch looks about right for you. Just don't let Tanner get his cooties on it.

Wow..two trees! Hope you helped to decorate or at least supervise. So your friend is moving here to California. He sure will like it. Maybe you can visit him one day.

I am so worried about you having to sit so close to Tanner all the time, but I know you will be super brave and get through it. I hope your Steelers do okay. I also hope my Riders win!

Your mom isn't nearly as neglecty as my mom. My mom likes your mom's Pyrex collection, she has some of those old refrigerator dishes and primary color mixing bowls that she uses and loves. You can come stay with me and see the ocean if you want to.

I'm very sad that your uncle moved out and took off for CALIFORNIA! I've never been there, but it sounds like a fun place. If I were you, I'd claim the fainting couch; it looks cool to me.

Christmas arrived at our house, too! Fig is showing me how to eat the pine cones off the Christmas tree.

Two trees? My girls would think that there would be more branches to munch on!

The Christmas stuff has started here too, Joey, as you will see in our post today. Our Mom likes extra trees too but until the little kids are bigger, she says one will have to be enough. Hope you get that football soon.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hey Joey:

Maybe you could talk Jameson into moving in seems like she likes to keep TANNER busy - go ahead ask her - Sophie won't mind -

TWO trees that's alot of rearranging of presents....

We've got a fainting couch too but our Mom would not appreciate us fainting on it belongs to Grammie and she kinda picky about her things....

TWO trees? hehe.. We're not likely to have any at all. At home that is - we're not going to be home for Christmas.

Clearly the big tree is for you and the teeny one is for Tanner! And don't rule out the ocean yet, pal. It's SO not like taking a bath!

Your pal,

Never saw a pyrex collection before - how neat. Does she ever let you use one for your food bowl? Good thing about 2 trees: room for more your presents under them!! You think you have football woes? Ever check out Cleveland's miserable excuse for a team BOL?

Hi Joey and Tanner,

Sounds like you boys had a great Thanksgivings. Wxcept for the horsie, I had a great time.

I love the award with the turkey so I'm gonna take but who knows how long before Mommy posts it.

It's good that you have the fainting couch now so you don't HAVE to sit by Tanner. Or maybe you should go sit on the other side of your mom?

Your mom did a great job decorating your house, it looks very neat and Xmasy. Tanner doesn't mess up the house? STINKY does!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
