Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We have lots to be thankful for this week.So we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop .Β  I got to see my Grammie on Christmas Eve and Day and the day after that too .I love her so very much. And the good news is she was not run over by any reindeer. Although my Mom’s sister, Auntie Vanessa, had a close call with one. It seems a local restaurant had a display and one got away so she saw it running down the street. One can never be too careful this time of year.

The great one was here and she kissed me.I would show you a photo, but my Mom won’t let me. Although our Cookie Monster is now missing , I am not naming names, but I think you know who has it.

Grammie got me this hat- how do I look?

Daddy’s sister brought us a stocking with 12 bags of treats.

Snowball’s boyfriend Pierrot sent her this soft blanket.

And Penny’s sweetie, Toby sent 15 toys and a candy cane ornament! She is supposed to share, but she hasn’t yet.

Mom will show you some of her gifts on Saturday or Sunday. And she apologizes if she hasn’t commented on your blog lately. She thought everyone was taking a Christmas break until she realized new posts weren’t going to her email. Apparently, she shut off the notifications for WordPress ( she is not very bright).

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter C.

Christmas Tree
Some Christmas Trees are tall and slender
whoever decorated this one was on a bender.
My folks have had this tree for a few years
I bet it is the only one with Spock ears.

Β  This is Dad’s tree for Star Trek ornaments, but now it is a Sci-fi tree because there are Dr. Who ornaments and a Lost in Space one too.


And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1.The highlight of my Christmas was ___________________________.

  1. Cute hat Phoebe! I love your poem today too – and I am SURE you’re the only peeps around to have a Spock-eared Christmas tree!!

    Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy

  2. You look really cool in your new hat, your Grammie picked well. That’s a nice tree, i’d never thought of doing one in a science fiction theme. Also i really like your poetry!

  3. I think you look cute in your hat… the color looks lovely on you!
    Your poem made me laugh… Spock ears! I used to have a crush on Spock when I was a young girl!
    I am so very happy that your Grammie was not run over by any reindeer!

    1. Thank you, pink is my color πŸ™‚ That is funny about Spock, I thought most had a crush on Kirk. πŸ™‚

        1. That is cute, we actually met him in Boston at his book signing in 1995. I have a photo of the hubby with him.

          1. Sorry you didn’t get to meet him. I keep trying to get my hubby to go to meet Shatner at a signing before it is too late. He also met Scotty and I got a photo for him of that.

  4. Your hat is too cute, Phoebe! We are so glad that you got to see your beloved Grammie so much this Christmas, and we are also so glad that those pesky reindeer stayed away from her. It looks like you all really hit the jackpot this Christmas, and you all deserve it! Oh, and we love the sci-fi tree! We can’t wait to work on these festive fill-ins, and we’ll see you with them tomorrow. Purrs!

    1. MOL πŸ™‚ There are lots of Kirks on the tree, it is filled with Star Trek ornaments.

  16. What a wonderful tree! I love all things Star Trek (although I couldn’t give a hoot about Star Wars… Go figure). I’m glad to hear your holiday was filled with love and treats. That’s as it should be, when you’re a good kitty like you.
