Sinterklaas Stuff

My owner got me a Sinterklaas table display!
It is the ship on which Sinterklaas travels to the Netherlands, and Sinterklaas and his horse are on board!

I also received an early Sinterklaas present!
Miki sent me this beautiful pig card, and Sinterklaas sneaked an extra card and a new piggy friend into the package Miki sent.

Thanks Miki and Sinterklaas!

Today I received a package with three books!
Enbrethiliel sent them to me, and they're all books by Filipino authors. I'm very curious about them.

One of the books has a story with pigs in it!
I think this will be my next read.

Thanks Enbrethiliel!

Sinterklaas Brought Presents

Sinterklaas is in the Netherlands again, so I put out some shoes and sang songs so he would bring us a present.

Two book shaped presents!
One of them was for me and my owner.

The 4th book in Charlie Higson's The Enemy series!
I'm very happy with it, because I loved the first three books in this series.

I also got marzipan piggies.
Aren't they cool!?

I got a marzipan horse and a marzipan Sinterklaas as well.

Thanks, Sinterklaas!

Dummie, Hammie and Hippos

Yesterday I went to the movies with Hammie!
We went to see Dummie de Mummie (Dummy the Mummy).

While we were waiting for the movie to start, Hammie gave me and my owner a present.

Hippo paperclips!

Then we found a good place to sit to see the movie.
It was a fun movie about a boy who finds a mummy who has come to life, and they become friends.

After the movie we lunched together.
There were pepernoten and schuimpjes, which are special Sinterklaas candy.

In the afternoon my owner and I went to a dinner party, but the picture we took of the delicious dessert didn't turn out right.

When we got home I tried out the hippo paperclips of course!

It was a really fun day!

Beanie Mail and Book Crossing Mail

There was a package from Beanie a few days ago.
It contained a beautiful card and a present!

Happy Christmas?!
I can't be reading that right. That would mean I can't open it for a long time. I think it says Happy Couchon. Couchon is French for pig, and I will be a happy pig if I open this present.

Thanks, Beanie!

Today I received two books that were send to me as part of a wishlist tag game on
Lamilla sent me City of Lost Souls, a beautiful octopus card and a bookmark, and Soozreader sent me The Alchemist and a cool card.

Thanks, Lamilla and Soozreader!

Games and Ice Cream

Monday we played games.
First we played Dix-It.
I had the pink rabbit, but it wasn't fast enough to win.

Next we played Bucket King.
It's a fun game where you have to try to keep your bucket tower from falling apart, but other people can force you to remove a bucket from your tower.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit down, but then my owner's OtherHalf cheered me up with ice cream!

Pie, Mail, and a Car

This weekend my owner baked a pumpkin pie.
I helped with the tasting: it was yummy!

Yesterday I received a card from Beanie!
He thinks I have even more books than are on this card. I think Beanie might be right ;-)

Thanks Beanie!

And I got a toy car from the owner's OtherHalf!
Isn't it cool!?

A Witchy Halloween

Yesterday it was Halloween and although my owner had to work, she got to dress up, because there was a Halloween Costume Contest at work. The people who looked the scariest would win a prize! I helped her search for a costume.

She dressed up as a scary, green-faced witch!

To add to the scare factor, there were spiders on her veil.

Witch at work!

And my owner won a prize!
She got two movie tickets. I am proud of her. The really yummy candy spider wasn´t part of the prize, but too cool to leave out in my opinion.

We took some pictures of our coworkers, but forgot to ask most of them if we could post their picture online, so here´s the one person we did ask. I love the scary mask!

When we got home there was a Halloween card from Jerry and Ben, it arrived exactly on Halloween. Great timing.
Thanks Jerry and Ben.

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
