Merry Christmas...Oh.my!

Well almost, bet you thought I hibearnated! Well almost on that too! Waiting for mom to let me open my Christmas cards has been like waiting for Christmas itself! Finally, I got to open them and she took one picture of me, my cards and my buddies. The nice blue one is from Jerry and Ben. The one with the Three Wise Bears is from Bob T. Bear(esq). Beary fine job you did there carving a linoleum block picture of your self Bob. Last, but not least, is the interesting one with the Alligator, it's from Marlowe. He sent a very handsome picture of himself with snow. We don't have any snow at my house andd the chances of a white Chriatmas are beary beary slim. Buttons

Before the snow flys...

Ooops! Too late, we has a dusting last night. So before Christmas comes, I'd like to share some fall vacation photos. My brother Scruffy went along with us. When we got there it was so cold. The heat was broken.

Brrrr, dad got us some hot chocolate and found the space heaters.

More snapshots in time...

My travels, on the Friday before Memorial Day took me by air to New Hampshire. Mom, dad, grandma and I flew together. For security purposes, I can't show you any pictures of the actual travel. Shhh! I was a stow-away in mom's carry-on. I had the camera, but it was too crowded and dark in there to take any pictures. Oh yeah, my cousin Bunky went too, but he traveled in the checked bag section.

The first morning there, Bunky and I got to play with the cool toy from the cereal box.

A Bear's Travels...

The other day my Aunt Cheryl brought my grandma for a visit from New Hampshire.
I went to A.C.'s to greet them. Grandma was happy to see me. I knew my cousin Bunky was suppose to come with them. But I didn't see him anywhere, finally I asked A.C. where he was? She told me I had to let him tell his story. So, what could I say...he had cell phone pictures!

When little bears get ideas...

This picture surfaced while mom was scanning photos. I think it's from 2000.
Before we had a digital camera, we had a BearPaw 1200 scanner. Being a bear, with a paw thought I'd try it out.

I'm in a pant-cape daze...

I answered Bob T . Bears' call for pant-cape photos, you may have seen them on his blog. We celebrated by jumping off the furniture at A.C. and U.P.'s. By the way Bob, jumping off doors is way braver than furniture.
I'm ready, I've got my pant-cape on...

Hibearnation news and admirers...

Grr-morning all,

This morning I found an email from my Chicago Bear friend Braxton. I must insert a disclaimer here.
He is not a membear of "The Chicago Bears - NFL team", but he is a bear, and he does live in Chicago with other bears.
I won't be able to tell you all of their names, I don't think I have met them all, but some of them have visited me and appeared here on my blog. That's Braxton (down front with his paw in the air), Benzer (directly behind him), Lisle and Brooks (2nd and 3rd from the L), Pittsbeargh (center with open mouth), Braeden (to R of Pittsbeargh in sweater), my bro Scruffy, next to him is Bulleit (back row) My apologies to the bears I missed and for the black spot, the lamp and it's reflection were too distracting. Now back to the email...

Do you like games?

Thank-you for all of your condolence hugs and messages. I've been trying to find quiet things to occupy our days. The other day, I decided we needed some fun. I got out one of my Christmas presents.
It was a good day to play my new game Farkel. Barnsie, Scruffy and Barnes all said they wanted to play.

Christmas makings and sad news...

Still catching up on sharing my Christmas. One posting after this one to finally be caught up. At the end of this installment I have some very sad news to share.
I rushed home from my Christmas shopping trip to watch mom make some chocolate peanut clusters with Cocoa. Mom made us sit back, she wanted us to avoid chocolate paws. While we were drooling over the chocolate smell I could hear mom's embroidery machine running upstairs.

A Bearsonal Shopper...

Still catching-up on pre-Christmas and Christmas...
I've added Bearsonal Shopper to my resume. I went Christmas shopping and errand running with dad.
I know, I know, I don't have my seat belt on, we weren't moving yet. I am a safety minded bear.
