Christmas, Yesterday and Today...
I put his name on the biggest stocking I could find and all four of us grandparents stuffed it with things for him...
That took him all of 20 minutes to get to the bottom... We finally had to turn it upside down to keep him from attempting to crawl inside.
The train wouldn't fit in the sock. There is a battery run engine that pulls the other cars around the track....This is how he started the day. By the end of the day, we all had to move away from the coffee table that it was on, so that he could follow it around the track, making sure that the cars stayed on the track.
The train was in at least three different patterns of track before the day was over. And he supervised every build. All ten hours...With breaks for eating breakfast and early afternoon dinner. We cheated and opened our presents whilst he took a nap.
Walter always makes sure that Zar and Tessie get their share of presents.
Zar got a new pet. He named him Lenny Lynx.
I think that Lenny would like something more ferocious. He hasn't answered to the name once.
Maybe bat wing soup would be more to his liking. Tessie zaps the bats and changes them into mice, leaving the wings to drop off for soup. Thus, no kill ingredients and lots of new mice pets.
And as for me, I got a lot of neat stuff, but it was all for regular sized people. I won't bore you with those. I am going back to playing now. I am wandering around in the Etsy shops. I got a nice gift certificate....Tessie keeps looking over my shoulder and suggesting mini shops on there to look at...We all know that she is NOT shopping for me.
Maybe I can distract her by getting her to think of names for the snake. She wants to call him Valdemort. I think that's a little much and evil besides.
Anyway, I am going back to loafing for the rest of the day.
See you tomorrow.
