December 23rd, 2014

I am in Mom’s backpack while we wait with her Mom at in the infusion room for her chemo. Mom and I thought that we ought to stop by here for a minute and wish everyone a Merry Christmas! We both love all the Christmas cards that people’ve been sending us. Mom has a lot of them written up, but she’s got to finish it and take them to the post office! They’re going to be late, but it’s about all the Christmas spirit she can muster! (She works retail and it’s been mighty crazy!)

Talk to you all later!

October 29th, 2014

So this year seems to be the year of the crisis for our family. Maybe crisis is a strong word, but it’s certainly been one of those years.

My mom, Oliver, my plushie family, the AG dolls, and the BJD kids are all right. Mom found Atticus, a Harmony Club Cameron doll. She found Mols. The BJD kids have a dollhouse now to live in—they’re very fond of not having to live in a box! So that’s all good!

Mom’s sister has announced that she is going to have a baby! She’s going to be due sometime in June! It’s a long time away, but it’s still something that we’re planning for!

But now for the bad news—Mom’s mom—our grandma (although Mom’s not sure what she would think of us calling her that!) has been diagnosed with cancer. It’s a tumor inside her lung. It definitely is treatable and she’s been doing great with all the stuff that’s been happening. It’s four days of treatment, three weeks off, and another four days of treatment. She has to go six times. Mom has been going with her when she can. She takes me with and I sit in her backpack near the chair for emotional support. It’s done in a large room with lots of chairs and people so I stay in the backpack. She’s not a terribly big fan of all the noise and the people talking—so I’m glad I get to go with!

That’s why we haven’t been posting so much. Mom and I felt like you all should know—you’re all such nice people! We hope you’re all having a good day and we’ll talk to you soon!

Mom filled out a whole bunch of postcards for PostCrossing. We were wondering if any of my blog friends would like a postcard. We could only find Button's address and would like to send more out. We will send everywhere, but my international friends will have to wait until Mom gets more special stamps!

Marlowe and Caleb

On one more note, Caleb got a new shirt! Oliver sort of stretched the old one!

Have a great day!

Things have been pretty quiet around here. It hasn’t been quite drama free, but no one’s disappeared or anything like that!2014-06-24 13.39.13

Mom says that we will write more later. We just wanted you to all know that we are fine!

June 11th, 2014

Mom found some more of our hug and brought them home. She finally got to buy them some clothes, so we can make their reintroduction on my blog.

This is Taft! He is a Build-a-Bear polar bear. He is very tall-- I feel very little indeed when I sit by him.

This is his brother Cleveland. Cleveland is currently wearing Milton's sweatshirt. It's big on Milton but very small on Cleveland! They're both very nice. We can tell them apart because Taft has a shiny nose and Cleveland has a soft nose!

When Mom finds clothes for each member of our hug, we'll reintroduce them here. Next up will be Chloe and Fleur!

The rest of the hug is slowly gathering. Mom has been rescuing them via eBay. They’re living at her sister’s house now in a box. It’s the safest place for them right now, although we all wish we could be together again!

Mom took our pictures yesterday. Well, some of us. We love sitting outside on the porch. Oliver sits with us!

tn_2014-05-25 Foster

We each got a turn for a picture! It was a very nice day.

tn_2014-05-25 Milton

Mom says we all need some summer clothes! Maybe some shorts!

tn_2014-05-25 Robinson

Foster, Milton, Robinson and I decided that we were much more focused on getting some ice cream instead! That didn’t require going shopping! I do love ice cream!

Mom says that she will take us outside tomorrow on her next day off. Maybe we can go to the park!

Mom went to her sister's house yesterday and rescued Chloe from her shipping container! The main hug has been reunited! Mom also brought Carabella home, so Caleb has a friend his size now. (Now if we could just get Oliver to leave him alone, he'd be a very happy bear!)

2014-05-16 23.22.32

We've decided to name the bunny Cotton! I'm sure that bunnies eat cotton plants given half a chance, and it's sort of literary too!

Talk to you all later!

Just a little post off the iPad before we go to bed tonight! Mom bought me a wee present! It's a little bunny! We decided that maybe we'd let all of our friends give us choices for his name! What do you all think? We like book names! Charlotte volunteered Peter, but we decided he'd have to wear a little blue jacket with buttons! Anybody have any other ideas?

2014-05-12 21.22.26


On another note, we're waiting for Mom to get Chloe from her sister's house, and then our main hug will be complete. We're scouting eBay for our other friends!

Yet another quick update! Mom found Robinson, Foster, Fleur and Charlotte! Chloe is on her way home right now!


We’ve been spending a lot of time sitting on the couch! We’re glad to be reunited again!

A quick update! We’re back home now. This evening, Mom found Foster, Fleur, and Robinson on ebay, so they should be home in a week or so. Milton, Caleb, Mom, and I are feeling out of sorts, so this is good news. Mom’s next paycheck will bring Chloe and Charlotte home.

The AG girls are in Mom’s sister’s garage right now, but we hope they can come home soon.

Time go to go bed now!

A few days ago, there was a fire at our house. Mom was at work, and her mom, dad, and the dog got out fine. But it was mostly in our room, so all our things and a lot of our friends are gone. Milton, Caleb and I were in Mom's car, and four of the AG girls and the BJD kids were downstairs, so they were saved. Mom says that she is going to replace most of our friends as time goes on, since we've decided that it's their spirit that lives on. Mom, Oliver, and the rest of us are in a hotel room until they clean up the house.

We will still post though. It just might take a little bit before we have something to post about. Talk to you all later!

This is going to be a bit of a random post, because we have bits of random things we want to share!

On my Twitter feed, Mom has been posting pictures of my friends and me. She’s been using her ipad and different photo editing apps.

2014-03-19 23.15.15-2

We’ve been thinking of doing a daily or weekly photo assignment thing—but she says that she’s not sure if she can come up with enough pictures! I say she takes almost daily pictures of Oliver on her Instagram feed!

2014-03-13 18.44.49

She has also went back to sewing! She has gone back to sewing for the American Girl dolls that live here. This is Molly and her new sundress! Last time, she started with that and then branched out to clothes for me and my friends, so I hope it goes that way again! (There are patterns for AG clothes, but not for random sized bears and horse plushies! Must build up confidence first!)

2014-03-20 15.00.00-2

Lastly, Wisconsin has decided to flirt with spring. I say ‘flirt’ because we will have a 50 degree F day, and then followed by a 25 degree F day—and right now it’s snowing! I’m not sure what season we’re supposed to be on, but both Mom and I are going to focus on the 50 degree F days!

Hope you all are having a good day! Talk to you later!

February 22nd, 2014

Mom has been interested in my twitter account again. To read our twitter feeds, Mom uses hootsuite, both on the computer and the iPad. When she used it to read her twitter, she would sometimes look at the button that was mine and remember all the very nice people on there! A few days ago, she clicked on it and all the nice people were still there! I followed some new people and read through lots of tweets! I hope we can keep it up again!

Mom has been making dolly food out of polymer clay. Technically, she's making it for her ball jointed dolls and a different set for the American Girl dolls. The AG sized stuff fits my friends and I too!

It is a nice, quiet morning-- at least as quiet as it can be with Oliver around! Talk to you later!

January 19th, 2014

Mom and I have some time, so we thought we would pop in for a bit. Things have been all right around here. Not too exciting, but I guess that’s a good thing!

2014-01-19 15.12.13-2

This is a picture from today—with filters and such from her ipad. I like the bright sun! It seems like it hasn’t been sunny for ages! And it was even a nice temperature, 35* F (about 2* C). I told Mom that she should have taken me outside!

2014-01-19 15.44.17

Oliver is still being Oliver. He’s 24 pounds (almost 11 kg) now. He has lots of puppy muscles! Mom says that he is still a force to be reckoned with. I think he’s certainly a handful!

Mom has decided to go back to school. This time, it is for web design. She says that it is a much better career for her if she ever gets to become a hermit. (I like that idea because then I get to be around all the time!) I like it because now she sits at the computer for longer times and I can help her. We also think that we might play with my blog and change things up a little bit once she figures out some more things!

Besides learning through school, we’ve been playing with a website called CodeAcademy. It’s fun! We’ve been doing stuff with HTML and CSS. Mom says that she is glad that most of it is already done here on Blogger! This is the main page that she has to use for one of her classes’ assignments. It’s very simple, but Mom says you have to start somewhere. (Her photography website is done with an editor that does most of the programming for you, so it’s fancier quicker!) We will keep you all updated on it, since it’s a part of making Mom a happier person, therefore more posting!

Talk to you all later!
