|"Play bows, Cam-a-roo!"|
"Hello, readers! Sorry for the delay!"
I really have my paws full sometimes!
|"We just love our pretty scarves, Mr. A!"|
"Yeah, they rock! And so do you!"
|"Try to look a little more innocent, Maggie. Mr. A might show this to Santa!"|
"Oh. Right. Good point."
|"I've been a VERY good girl this year, Santa!"|
|"I mean WOW! I didn't know she had it in her!"|
|"Well, well, well. What have we here?!?"|
|"I think my hat is slipping."|
"I wasn't going to take them, Mom. Honest."
|"Should I tell her Sock Monkey is on the tree right behind her?"|
"Let's keep that to ourselves, Cam. Maggie, could you try to look happy?"
"I'm still on the 'Nice List', right?!?"
|"How's this, Mom? A jaunty head tilt."|
"Do I look goofy? 'Cause I feel goofy."
|A button from one of our dad's old uniforms|
|"How about this?"|
"Uh ... Houston, we have a problem ..."
|A button from one of Mom's dad's (our grandfather) old uniforms from the United States Military Academy|
|"Mom? A little help here!"|
"Good, Mom. Much less goofy."
|"So much better! Big finish, Mags!"|
"Wouldn't it have been easier to do bandanas from the get-go?"
|"As Mom taught me to say ... Bonne fête de Saint Nicolas!"|
|"What are you doing? I thought we were going on a walk? Hey ... do I smell cookies?"|
"We are going. I just ... um ... well ..."
"OH. Hey, everyone. Happy Saint Nicolas Day! Say, Mom. Are those the treats St. Nick brought us?"
|"Thank you, Saint Nicolas!"|
"Yeah, thanks, St. Nick. I hope your horse liked the treats we left him last night!"
