It's New Year's Eve

hAppY nEw YeAR (eVe)!

Well it's not much longer until 2012 begins!  Even though a whole 365 days has past, 2011 has gone by so fast.  Take this time to reflect on the year, and more importantly have fun with your family and friends. 

Thanks for making my 2011 special.  I'll be looking forward to hearing from you all in 2012!  Have a fun, safe, and happy new year!

The Friend Festivities- A Christmas Story

Series: The Moose Brothers
By: Julia

*Cry, cry, cry
My brothers are gone and I'm all alone.

I'll be spending a lonely Christmas by myself.

I guess there's nothing to do except to go to bed.


I can't go to sleep with all this racket!

I'll find the source of this noise!

The noise seems to be coming from around here...

Who are you mysterious figure?  Step out from the shadows!

Such big eyes...
And huge teeth...


Run, run, run!

 *Huff.  Huff.  Huff.


I won't hurt you.  I'm only a beaver.
My name is Baxter.
Oh, cool...let's be friends!


I'm glad that we're friends...
But today is Christmas and I have no one to celebrate with. 

Let's just celebrate together!

First, let's have a gift exchange. 
Here, you can have my scarf.

You can have...this thing...

 Thank you...but what is it?
Oh!  It must be a hat!
No.  That doesn't feel right.

 Perhaps a sleeping bag?
Ooh.  Tight fit.

I know, it's a nose mitten!
Yes.  That feels nice and cozy.

 Now let's decorate this tree!

 This was a fun Christmas.  I'm so glad we're friends!

Merry Christmas.

And Baxter!

Buddy's Christmas Presents

By: Me- Buddy!

(Christmas Eve)
Oh, when is Santa coming?
The next day...

(Christmas Day)
Hrmm...*sniff *sniff.

This must be my first present!  A treat- tasty!
And now, for my first act, I shall make this treat disappear!

That was so good.  *Sniffle.  I wish I still had it.

Ooh lala!  Another present!

Here, I'll show it to you.

What is it?  It can't be a treat, it tastes funny...

Oh, silly me.  The present is wrapped!
Now let me figure out how to take of the paper.

A few minutes later...

Very soft and squeaky.  It's a keeper!

Oh yippee!  I got the last of the paper off.

Oh cool.  This toy can crinkle!

How lucky am I?  I get another present!
Er...make that two presents...

It's play-time!

Sigh.  What a great Christmas.

<3 Love,

Merry Christmas!

Season's Greetings,

It's finally Christmas!  How exciting!

Yesterday was Christmas Eve, and we all know that's when Santa Claus comes to town.  I made sure to leave out egg nog, cookies, and a letter for his long journey.  And when I woke up this morning, what do you know?  He ate everything!  Not a crumb nor a drop was left.  He must have been terribly hungry. 

The aftermath of Santa

Santa filled my stocking with a letter and some spending money.  Thank you Santa!

And now it's Christmas!  If you're wondering, I spent my morning with family.  First we ate a big yummy breakfast together and then we opened presents.  It was a wonderful start to this special day. 

 Here is a picture of my Christmas tree

Well that's all for now.  May peace and joy fill the rest of your day.  Have a great Christmas!

Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Greetings Friends!

To help kick off the week I decided to share some photos from Liliha Bakery on the island of Oahu.  The bakery was filled to the brim with hungry customers craving some scrumptious snacks and treats.  Luckily, I managed to get some pictures of the actual food there, so feast your eyes on these babies!

 "Stolen" Bread and specialty designed cookies.

 An assortment of cakes.

I think I'm in pastry heaven!

 Some chiffon cakes and brownies.


Festive holiday treats and others.

 Ooh, yay!  A homemade gingerbread house.

Treats to die for!

*Licks lips

Oh I'm hungry!

P.S.- Here's a little activity:
Tell me which one of the pastries is your favorite in the comment section.
