Counting down to Christmas

As Christmas is almost here I'd thought I'd give you an update.

I got the game Here, Kitty, Kitty! as an early Christmas present. We played it with friends and it's a really fun game. I won!

We also received these warm, fluffy socks and Christmas piggy from the same awesome person who gave me the kitty game.

We received lots of beautiful Christmas cards.
Isn't this one cool?!

People spoiled us by sending us books.
These arrived today, but we also received books from Melliane.

As you might have noticed in the previous pictures:
I got a new festive hat.

I just love these colors.

And there were lots of Christmas goodies for us yesterday!
The FairyLoot boxes didn't contain FairyLoot, but were filled with ChristmasLoot.

Just look at all these awesome goodies!

I'm looking forward to Christmas, and hope you will all have a wonderful holiday season as well.

A Birthday Visit and Snow

Last Sunday we went to visit my owner's family for a birthday. I got to meet up with Candy again. And it turned out one of my cousins was there as well.

My owner's niece made a beautiful pig for us!
Of course my owner forgot to take the pig home, so we'll have to visit again sometime to get it.

It started to snow.

Candy and me with the candle holders my owner's niece and her mother made.

There were bunnies with their own small house.

It kept snowing.

My owner's niece and one of my owner's nephews made a snowman. Isn't he cool!

At the end of the afternoon we went out for dinner.

Candy and I were very curious what was in this pan.

Mussels. Yum!

I also got to taste a truffle croquette.

We played with the flags that were stuck in the croquettes.

I got hot chocolate with Amaretto for dessert.

Candy helped me reach it.

In the evening we went back to Groningen.
It had snowed there as well.

It was a really fun day.

Christmas at the Garden Center

We went to the garden center for a Christmas tree yesterday and we had a look at all the cool Christmas stuff on display.

There were swinging penguins.

Some kind of snow queen.

A cool fox.

This car was full of Christmassy houses and stuff.

Even a small fair!

I love this tower.

A Christmas Archway

There was even a Christmassy carousel horse.

There was also a fake wooden cabin.

Complete with a fake fire.


All in all it was really fun.
And we found the perfect tree!

Sinterklaas Brought Presents!

Sinterklaas brought us presents yesterday.
He was a day early because he has many presents to deliver and can't deliver them all in one day.

One of the presents was this really cool Cthulhu lamp!

There were cool hedgehog statues.

And books!!

I also got marzipan, a Cthulhu die, buttons, and a dinosaur eraser.

Thanks, Sinterklaas!

Surprise Visit by Sinterklaas

There was a knock on our backdoor yesterday and when cat and I investigated there were presents!

They were from Sinterklaas! Sometimes when you've been good he brings an early present. There were magazines and chocolate inside!

McPig and the City

This afternoon we went shopping.
I saw many cool books, but wasn't allowed to buy any, but got to make a wishlist for Sinterklaas.

At the Grote Markt we looked at the new building they're constructing.

It is going to be a sort of meeting place when it's finished.
I'm not sure if we need a new meeting place, but maybe it will be cool.

We stopped for food and a nice bottle of cider at Cafe Hooghoudt.

In the evening the Vismarkt looked beautiful with all the lights.

It was a fun afternoon!

We made muffins for Halloween.

We celebrated with friends and played Cards Against Humanity.
I liked this combination the most!

Still alive - An Update

I'm still alive!

My owner still isn't doing any interesting stuff, so I'm mainly reading and playing games. Here's an update on some of the things that happened.

I won a giveaway held by Susan Spann and I won a book, koi socks, candy, and a Japanese travel bag.

The book is signed to me!

We got a new trivia game as a present from friends and it's lots of fun.

We got amazing mail from Aimo.
My owner asked her if she could paint our character from the computer game Dragon Age Inquisition together with one of the other characters from the game. The result is absolutely wonderful! She also sent another drawing, and some swag featuring her artwork.

That's it for now.
I hope to have something fun to tell you about soon.
