November 30th, 2005

Brr-r-r-r--r--rr!! It's so cold here in Wisconsin. No going outside for us! We'll watch the outside world from the window! There isn't any snow on the ground right now. It's all frozen mud. It had been raining for a few days. That was icky. I didn't like it at all. It rained, and rained, and rained, and rained. No going outside then either. I'm the only one that has a raincoat, but I don't want to go outside without my sister and friends. Maybe we’ll be able to go outside tomorrow. Mom has the day off. She can come out with us.

I think that it’ll be much better when I get used to the cold. I hope it snows though before Christmas. I want a white Christmas! It doesn’t need to be feet of snow. Just a light dusting will be fine with me!     

I had a nice picture of a teddy angel, but doesn’t want to let me upload it. I’ll have to share it with you tomorrow.

I have a website to share with you. It's called Mole Island Bears. There is a shop here called Bear Noel. It's Christmas all year long. The bears featured on the webpage are great. Be patient though. The webpages take a long time to load on a dial-up connection.

Thanksgiving Card

November 24th, 2005

Sigh. Mom had to spend almost the whole day up north with her Grandma at Thanksgiving supper. It was kind of boring here in Greenville. It’s very cold. The temperature on the computer says that it was around 17 degrees most of the day. None of us wanted to go outside in that kind of weather. We were going to go downstairs, but even the bulldog went with. There wasn’t anyone to talk to down there either! We mostly napped. Then we read some books.

Then Mom came home. She’s making me some coveralls, so I helped her with that for a while. Then she let me play on the computer where I found a great picture for Thanksgiving!

Mom has to go to work early tomorrow, so I’ve got to get offline. I’ll write tomorrow!

November 22nd 2005

I had a great day today! I got to help Mom make dinner. She took some pictures of me helping so I could share them with you! It started out with me coming downstairs with her. She put me on the ground so I could look around. I liked walking around, but I liked being up higher even more. We made chicken and potatoes. She assembled the roasting pan, and then let me help her put the 'shake and bake' and the chicken into a plastic baggie and shake! That was pretty fun too. Then we laid the chicken out in a nice row in the pan. Then she put it in the oven because it was much too hot for me. Then I helped her wrap the potatoes in tin foil. Those went into the oven too.

Then we went into the living room and sat for a while. We watched TV. Then we went back to the kitchen and served up supper! It was really good. We did a GREAT job!

November 21st, 2005

Today is Mom's dad's birthday. They went out to dinner. Mom explained to us about birthdays. She says that people celebrate the anniversary of the day that they were born. She says that my birthday is on Christmas! I thought we were celebrating Christmas, and we were also celebrating my birthday! He got all sorts of different presents. I like presents!

I had a nice, calm day. The weather was pretty nice, so we took a walk around the patio. All the leaves are gone, and the snow that fell has melted away. It's pretty ugly outside. I wish the snow would have stayed for longer. The patio is almost finished though. There is only one side where we have to watch our step or we might trip. It's very nice. It's nice to walk on too. Before it was kind of hard to walk on the grass-- it was too bumpy! Now it's all nice and smooth.

November 17th, 2005

Mom and I just spent the last few hours helping her Mom with a project from work. Her hands are tired, so I am typing this all by myself. It's just going to take me a bit longer all by myself!

Today we spent lots of time looking out the windows at the new snow. There really isn't a lot of it though. It doesn't even cover the ground completely. Mom says that this weekend is supposed to be a little bit warmer, so it probably is going to disappear. I like snow. I just don't like being all stuck inside when it snows! Mom will let us outside after it snows. She doesn't want us getting lost in a snowdrift. After all, we're only 18 inches tall!

Today while Mom was at work, we investigated online what kind of giraffe Charlotte is. Turns out, she's a reticulated giraffe. She's got the right coat pattern. I'll post a better picture of her later with a picture of a reticulated giraffe and you can see. It was pretty interesting trying to figure it out. We really couldn't find many through websites about giraffes. All we could really find was zoo websites. They had basic information, but not much about the different species of giraffes! Oh well. Doesn't matter much to us.

November 14th, 2005

Greetings. I had a great day today. I found another blog written by a teddy bear just like me. It’s called Fuzzles Bear. It’s all about a bear and his friends. It even has a webpage about the travels that some of his friends have gone. Two of his friends have been to Europe! I’d love to go to Europe!

One thing that the blog had that I thought was a great idea is that it introduced all of Fuzzles’ friends. I thought that I would introduce my friends.

First, this is my sister Chloe. Mom brought her home from Build-a-Bear. She is very nice, even for a little sister! She likes puppies, kitties, and going to the park. She likes to imagine that she’s a lady from the olden days. She likes pretending to have tea with her friends.

We spend a lot of time together. She’s starting to learn to read, so I help her. She tells me that she wants to write on this blog. I told her that I would let her someday. She can tell very good stories, so I’m sure she’d do well. Her favorite stories are ones with animals in them. We’re always on the lookout for new books!

This is my friend Robinson. Mom brought him home from Build-a-Bear too. We always have great fun. We like imagining that we’re pirates, cowboys, or even astronauts! He likes to read too. We read the boy books together that Chloe isn’t interested in. We also like going outside. Robinson loves playing in leaves, snow, or even sand. He wants it to snow so we can go outside and play. I’m not sure if Mom’ll let us go outside too much! Either way, I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun.

Next, this is my sister’s friend, Charlotte. Mom brought her home from Build-a-Bear. She’s kind of shy to Robinson and I now, but she’s warming up. She says that she’s never met anyone like us! But Chloe told her that we were awfully nice, so she wants to be our friend too!

November 12th 2005

While Mom was gone to work, we decided to get a new book off the chest at the end of her bed. It was quite the adventure. Thankfully, Charlotte is very tall. Chloe climbed on her back and pulled herself right up there. Our new book is Click-Clack, Quackity Quack, by Doreen Cronin. It's an alphabet adventure with the same characters as Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. That's one of our favorites!

Tomorrow the patio in front of the house gets put up. Or put down, to be more exact. It's basically ground covered with bricks. We're going to watch from the balcony!

My Mom came home! It's awfully late, but she came back from the apartment just to be by me! I'm so glad! I was getting worried for a while there. She warned us that she might stay at the apartment tonight, but I hoped she would come home. I didn't want to spend all night and all day tomorrow alone!

I found this great picture today when Mom was at work and at the apartment. It's a picture of a beautiful tree that is at a college campus. I've never seen a tree around here such a brilliant color orange.

It's time to go to bed. I'll write more tomorrow. Hope you are having a good day!

We didn't get to go outside today. It was much too cold. Maybe tomorrow. Mom and her parents are going to make a patio of pavers right outside the porch. Maybe we can help. We can at least supervise!

Today was pretty fun though. We went downstairs and watched a TV show on the Animal Planet channel called Growing Up Giraffe. It was sad when the mother giraffe died, but I'm glad that the baby pulled through. I wish that they'd have updates!
I would like to know how the baby giraffe is doing today.

November 3rd, 2005

Today was a very good day for me. I was all cozy in my blankets for most of the day. Then we read some books, played on the computer a little bit, and then Mom came home. We went downstairs and played with the dog. Now Mom and I are playing on the internet. We found this great picture. It is a statue of a teddy bear in the city of Seattle, Washington. Mom showed me where it is on the map. It's far away from Wisconsin! Someday, I hope I can travel here to see this teddy bear!

We were looking at a book about places to travel that have to do with books. It's called Traveling Literary America, by B.J. Welborn. Robinson and I picked out places that we'd like to visit. You can see where Laura Ingalls Wilder was born. We like her books. You can also tour Springfield, IL, and find out all about Lincoln!

November 1st, 2005

My Mom is helping me type today. Keys on keyboards are awfully small for a bear with no fingers! My paws are just a little bit too big! It's getting close to my bedtime, but I still wanted to post a little note here.

Today was a pretty quiet day. Since Mom had to work all day, Robinson and I took turns reading Harry Potter between naps. She says that she's going to get us a new book when we're finished.

I'm looking forward to Friday. Mom says we can all get bundled up and go outside and play! She says that there are plenty of leaves to play in. If it doesn't rain or snow, I'll make sure she takes pictures and post them here!
