April 21st, 2011

My mom buys me presents sometimes. Sometimes, they’re clothes, which isn’t very fun. Sometimes they’re toys, which is a lot more fun. I have my own train, and a toy digger. A few days ago, she got me a brand new toy!

I have my very own Lightning McQueen! My favorite movie is Cars! There’s a new movie coming out too—Mom and I aren’t too sure about it, but we figure we ought to give it a try! She was looking for a Sally too, but all the ones the store had were Lightning McQueen.

Isn’t he great?! He’s just my size. You see his eyes? They move back and forth when you look at him from different directions.

I think he’s my favorite toy right now. (Caleb, my bear, really isn’t a toy, obviously—he’s my friend!) Does anyone else have a favorite toy?

April 9th, 2011

I thought that my mom and I would have posted quickly after the last one, but it didn’t seem to happen. Sigh.
tn_2011-03-26 Fyodor_edited-1The new friend I wanted to tell you about is Fyodor. I thought I would mention him here in case any of you know what kind of bear he is. His tag says that he is a Ganz Heritage collection bear, but we haven’t been able to find out what his tag name is or anything like that. We even scoured ebay for the name and it didn’t come up.
A few days after that, Mom brought home a new Build-a-Bear friend. Her name is Wheat, and she is Shirley’s cousin.

Mom named her Wheat because one of our friends on Flickr, Neoguest, had brought home a sheep called Clover! We already have a friend named Clover here (she’s a Westie), so she came up with Wheat!
Mom and I are sorry that we haven’t been commenting on people’s posts lately. Fred, our computer, is getting old. When we upgraded to Firefox 4, we started to see that he was working very slowly when we wanted to go on the internet. So far Mom’s figured out one thing that seems to speed things up a little bit. She started telling me about memory and CPU and all sorts of things—and it was very confusing. She said that I can just think about what to have her type up on our blog posts and leave the computer worrying to her.
And Mom’s had a cold for the past couple days—and along with work things, she’s been a rather unhappy camper. Well, she’s been a rather cranky camper really. Fred-the-computer should be glad that she’s not prone to fits of temper! (That’s what Mom says!)

Talk to you all later!
