For Christmas Grma M and Grpa T gave "adopted" orangutans to the kids for Christmas. Claire is now an adoptive parent to Merah at the St. Louis Zoo and Benjamin is one of Sugriwa's adoptive parents. They named their stuffed counterparts "Sugar" and "Hungry" and they have moved straight to the top of the stuffed animal totem in our home.
The adoption kit also came with t-shirt iron transfers. Here they are with their new duds. We visited the St. Louis Zoo on a very hot day this summer and only caught a quick glimpse of the orangutans, but I think they are fascinating and this was a super gift! (Who needs more legos, really?!)
Grma K and Grpa J must have been thinking along these same lines at Christmas time because they gave us a membership to the Dallas Zoo. How cool is that? We love zoos and have definitely missed that living here in Maine.
Two boxes came from Amazon today. I'm not sure I can wait until tomorrow (my birthday!) to open them.
Oh my goodness, that pink stretchy shirt was such a riot. Poor poor Emmet. I say that, of course, in a you-deserved-to-go sort of way.
Nick?! What were you thinking with gray and beige? Your outfit could have been a slam dunk if you'd done it in something gutsy! Lime and teal! Orange and fuscia! Even baby pink and baby blue would have been better.
How funny was Sacha when she said she liked the rucheing on the front of Santino's creation? She really had to stretch to find anything positive to say.
Did Sawyer call the guy in the jungle Zeke because he "knew" his name, or was it just another of Sawyer's nicknames for people he encounters?
Loved it, but I completely missed the dialog in that one scene because I was so excited to be hearing Pretty Vegas.
