This year we are looking forward to watching My MamaFigure turn into a chicken with it's head cut off. That Man says it should happen any day!
My stocking is hanging up in the library. I know I'll get a new toy and a special treat. My MamaFigure says LuLu is going to get a lump of coal in her stocking, because she is slowly and methodically wrecking Christmas. LuLu says she is not slow and methodical at all, instead she is acting very quickly upon uncontrollable whims.
Here is a picture of me underneath the tree in the library. You can see the look of concern on my face; this is where it all began......
My MamaFigure bought a tree skirt after Christmas last year. She said it was a bargain! She says it goes perfectly with the library tree and it was 80% off the normal retail price! She was very excited to use it for the first time this year! Me and LuLu were in the library with her while she smoothed the skirt underneath the tree and began hanging the ornaments.
Then, LuLu ran out of the room!!! She ran so fast that when she ran off the rug onto the wooden floor she couldn't get any traction! I thought it looked like fun, so I tried it too!! We were both running and running and not getting anywhere! Finally, LuLu broke free and ran into the living room where That Man was watching TV. He yelled to My MamaFigure "she's got something in her mouth!" Well, they chased LuLu around the living room, but they couldn't catch her. Finally My MamaFigure went back to the library and this is what she found:
LuLu had pulled the eye off the elf!!! She was also trying to pull the eye off the mouse!
That Man told My MamaFigure not to worry, the eye would make re-entry in a day or so. My MamaFigure says she will buy another eye.
My MamaFigure likes Peanuts!!! She always puts up her Peanuts display where The Grandboy and The Grandgirl can play with it. Me and LuLu like Peanuts too! One day, while My MamaFigure was in her sewing room and That Man was watching TV, LuLu decided she wanted to "become a part of the tableaux". LuLu speaks French, and I don't understand French, but I think she meant she wanted to walk around in the middle of My MamaFigure's Peanuts display. Here is a picture of what That Man calls "LuLu's Carnage".
My MamaFigure says Linus was the only one to escape LuLu's Carnage, which is befitting since he is the one who realized what Christmas is all about.
That Man and My MamaFigure get Christmas cards from their family and friends. Their good friends, Roger and Katrina, sent me and LuLu a card this year!!! Our names were actually on the envelope!! We never get mail and we were excited!! My MamaFigure hung it up with all the other cards. It made us proud! Well, this morning while My MamaFigure was making up the bed and That Man was outside riding his lawnmower, our card fell on the floor. When I saw what LuLu was doing, I ran into the bedroom with my MamaFigure. I didn't want her to think I was a party to LuLu's "slow and methodical" plan to wreck Christmas. Here is a picture of the card.
My MamaFigure says she might be able to tape it back together as soon as the wet pieces she found lying on the dining room floor are dry. There are missing pieces too, but That Man says they are traveling through LuLu's digestive tract. He is real mad at LuLu. He called her a bad name.
Here is a picture of LuLu under the library tree. She says the red walls in the library and the excitement of Christmas made her act out and before she knew it, she had bit the eye off the elf. And she said she really didn't mean to knock the Peanuts display over, she just wanted to be a part of it and see what was in Snoopy's doghouse. She doesn't have any explanation for chewing our Christmas card. She said, "it was just lying there and I like paper."
