Hot Chocolate, Mail, Presents and a T-Rex

Last weekend we went into town and I got to drink hot chocolate. Yum!.

Yesterday I had Beanie mail!
The 8th book in the Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan. I'm looking forward to reading it.

And me and some of the other animals got presents from Sinterklaas!
Sinterklaas will bring even more presents on December 5th, but he sometimes brings some early presents if you sing songs for him and put out a treat for his horse.

I got a Dinosaur Excavation Kit and a book.
I got a Dinosaur Excavation Kit as a souvenir from Berlin, and loved it, so I'm really happy with this kit. It says the dinosaur glows in the dark!

So I had to start excavating the dinosaur today of course.

It was hard work, but slowly I managed to dig my way to the dinosaur bones.

Finally the first bone was excavated!
This kit was a lot harder than the one from Berlin, I must say, but still lots of fun. I managed to get all the bones out of the ground and put them together.

And don't you think this is a really awesome T-Rex!?
I can't wait until tonight, so I can see if he really glows in the dark!

Attack of the T-Rex Skeleton!

Just kidding: the T-Rex didn't harm me, I'm totally OK!

Catching Up

I've been lazy so here's a catch up on things I did these last few weeks.

we had a Halloween party where my owner dressed up as a wild boar!

We also baked a pumpkin pie.

And we had roasted chestnuts.

Here's picture of our Halloween table.

I got gingerbread cookies at work.
It was a gift to show us they appreciated all the hard work we do.

Jeffe sent us this really cool Day of Dead candy skull!

Yesterday we went to the movies with a colleague and saw The Last Witch Hunter.
It was a really cool movie!

Today at work there was a celebration and we got a bag full of oliebollen.

And when I got home there was mail waiting for us.
We won these cool bookmarks in a giveaway by Linda Poitevin. Her The Grigory Legacy series is a really awesome series, so we're very happy with these bookmarks.

That's it for now.
I will try to post more often again.

I've been taking it easy lately and I've been relaxing with some of my friends, but this week I had some crafting to do.

We got some turkey crafting kits from Jeffe.
First we started on one that was made with tissue paper.

My owner helped me figure out what to do.

We rolled the colored tissue paper and stuck it to the turkey picture with double sided tape. It was lots of work, but also lots of fun!

After lots of crafting we finished the turkey.

Isn't it gorgeous!?

On to the next turkey!

This one was simpler.
We had to stick glitter stickers to a turkey.

All done!

We gave both turkeys a nice spot in the living room.
Thanks, Jeffe!

Turkeys in My Mail

Today we received an awesome package from Jeffe.
She sent us some really cool Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations.

This turkey immediately got a spot in our autumn display.
I'll get out the scissors and glue this weekend to assemble the others as well.

Jeffe also included a Coastal Magic shirt for my owner.
Maybe one day my owner can wear it while actually being at a Coastal Magic Convention, but it won't be the upcoming convention I'm afraid.

Cool Mail and a Medal

This week we received mail from Hammie.
He sent a beautiful pig card and a button of the Bremer Street Musicians. How cool!

And we received mail from Beanie as well!
Beanie send us the next book in the cool Cirque du Freak series, AND a signed copy of Zom-B Fugitive!

And it's signed to me!

Today my owner participated in 'De 4 Mijl van Groningen'.
The 4 Mile of Groningen is a really huge running event that's held every year in Groningen. She got this medal as a reward for making it to the finish. I think I'm allowed to be proud of this medal as well, because I'm the one who told her it's important to learn how to run away from zombies.

An Autumn Walk

Last Sunday the weather was really nice, so we went for a walk to Garnwerd.

In Garnwerd we of course had something to drink at Hammingh.

It was a lovely afternoon.

Fraeylemaborg and Food

We toured the Fraeylemaborg after we had lunch.
There were lots of paintings and furniture.

I think this guy was one of the former owners of the Fraeylemaborg.

In the dining room the table was all set for dinner.

I wonder if this lady is one of the former owners as well.

A linen closet.

I spotted an old map.
Look: there's Groningen!

The owner and me testing out the selfie camera on her new phone.

They had a miniature canon!
I wonder if it works.

Another view on the tower.

It was a fun outing.
I think the Fraeylemaborg is a beautiful building.

On the way to the car I saw this sign.
It tells the distance to other UNESCO world heritage sites.

In the evening we went out for dinner.
I got a glass of Prosecco

And lots of yummy sushi!

It was a really fun day!
Thanks Aurian and Freya!
