Happy New Year x

I'm Not Sure I Can Make It

I'm trying my best to keep awake until it get's to midnight until we get to a new year, it will be 2016 Daddy says, for me it's 3 and a bit but we'll not worry about that. I'm finding it just so hard to keep my eyes open, I'm not sure I can make it.

Happy New Year. Lots of Love River xxx

Jump For Joy

They're here! They're here, The Elf and Husband Elf, they've got here,

Daddy said I needed to show them how happy I am by jumping for joy.

OK I've got some motivation, Daddy is lifting Nannies old dress up for me to get.

Building up speed for height...

Enough power in my legs now leap

Yes, I've got a good grip, not gonna let this one go.

Let it go Daddy, let it go.

Got it!

I'm Waiting!

I'm waiting for my Nanny and Grandad to come and see me, they are coming for today which is New Year's Eve, the last day of the year.

Come on hurry up, I'm waiting!

The Night Sky

I was just playing with my toys when Puppynap said come on River, we're going out for a walk to look at the night sky.


Come on then.

Must wrap up nice and warm, it's cold out.

Even though it's night time I can still jump, I can see very well in the dark.

Done the dark alley...

...and up to the big road.

Look right...

...look left...

...and look the other way again. You must be extra special careful at night of the traffic, it's very busy.

Up the hill, ah I know where we're going.

Down the alleyway... 

...and along the little road...

...all the way to the little stream.

It's very pretty at night.

As are all the Christmas lights on all the houses. You can see them even better at night than during the day, I got so distracted by everything I forgot to look up at the stars in the night sky. Oh!

My Best Grin

I've just got up, I had a sleep in with Daddy. When I did get up I went in to sit with Puppynap, he was working and I needed to see both my Daddies at one time.

I needed them to be together before I gave them my best grin, David told me today 14 years ago Daddy and Puppynap met for the first time. Happy anniversary daddies, I love you very much. Love River x

Disappeared Into Thin Air!

I think David must have got a magic kit for Christmas, because one second he was playing with me in the garden and the next...

...he's gone. Disappeared into thin air!

*Blink, blink*

Today Is Called Boxing Day

Today is called Boxing Day and it's a day when you don't really do anything.  I didn't anyway, I had a long lay on Daddy as we ate his breakfast.

Then I had a sleep and woke up to hear Puppynap in the kitchen. I went out to help him get it done quick, he said the best thing I could do to help would be to stay and chat to him. So I did.

It took ages for dinner to come but when it did it was brilliant. I had the beef and then went to sit on Daddy again and have a chat...

...but he didn't feel like talking so I went to sleep on him again until...

...I spotted the Elf leaning forward and decided that would be the best place in the room for me to go to bed in. I like Boxing Days, nice and lazy!

My Christmas Day by River aged 3

I woke up and it was Christmas Day. I was allowed on the bed all night and it was nice and warm on Daddy. Pupynap had a bath and then said I should make sure I remember all of the day today.

When I woke up it was Christmas Day.

I had a little drink and then said to everyone, come on it's time to go and open our presents.

Come on everyone, hurry up!

But when I got down the stairs only Daddy and Puppynap and David was down here. I looked out of the window to see who was coming today.

But I waited for ages and got bored and decided to have a look at my presents to see what I was having. David joined me, we couldn't work it out.

And then I cuddled up with Puppynap and we watched a programme about a reindeer going for a walk in the snow.

David then came to ask if they were here yet but they wasn't. When they get here we can have our presents.

Daddy then came down in his Christmas clothes and we had a cuddle while we waited.

And then the girl came down the stairs and we had a game of rough and tumble.

And then finally they were here.

Come on everyone, it's time to open our presents. Come on everyone.

*Sniff, sniff*

Is that my one's Daddy?

I got a teddy and some wrapping paper...

Thank you x

Is there anything else that's for me?

Yes, lots of bags of treats and snackeroos and things. Lovely!

Then I was tired out and had a lay with teddy on my chair and had a little sleep.

But I woke up when David came in with Puppynap playing with his new toy, a feathering thing on a string. 


Then we had a little dance together.

And we both had some extra treats.

And then there was a knock on the door and Mogsie, Twizzle and George's mummy came over to say hello and give me and David some presents.

Brilliant, what have I got?

It's a squeaky penguin, especially for Christmas. I'll say a big thank you next time I see her. It was brilliant present.

And then The Elf came me a great big bone, a bit too big for my mouth but I gave it a go.

And then I remembered I was hungry, it was the afternoon and went in the kitchen t see what Daddy and Puppynap were doing.

While David waited for his dinner at the table.

I had a full roast. Ummm!

I was very full up afterwards and fell asleep on the animal magic legs.

And woke up to Puppynap saying this was the lady that I was named after come to say Happy Christmas to me. She was on the TV

It was then getting late so I cuddled up with The Elf for a sleep until...

David woke me up and we both got some more treats to eat.

Phew, I'm worn out now, it's been such a busy day.

Happy Christmas everyone, Love River x
