Pre-Christmas Fun…

Posted by on November 25, 2017

*Gypsy Joy*

Today’s story is a treasury of
Little Lion’s Birthday,
The Elf on the Shelf 
The Gingerbread Man


the Dollywood Christmas Parade.

Exciting, is not it!

WOW five fun things all in one story!

“Good things come in three”
The Elf on the Shelf says,
“and more than three
is a Santa treat!”

Grrr… Good question Elf on the Shelf… Grrr.

 We had an extremely nice Halloween
this year
with Empress Zoe Labrador,
Little Lion,
the “Young Mistress” who arrived with
lots of Halloween goodies for all
a lot of Halloween decorations
and elaborate Halloween lights.

Some of them could have been from prince
Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania.

Scary… scary…

That was Then and This is Me (Zoe) Today!

Empress Zoe Labrador  and “sister feline Hope”.

“Together we have a lot of fun visiting Little Lion!”

We were not bewildered by all the haunting
“No Siree!”
nor were our little and big
Halloween visitors.

We liked all the “Trick or Treaters”
and were liked a lot, too.
After five hours we ran out of goodies
and had given away 78 treat bags


Halloween fun surprises
like spiders, rings and pencils
and put up the “Out of Goodies” sign.

It drizzled a bit this year and that
made “Mistress Mommy” aka
“The Blog Muse”
think about this poetic quote:

“Water that runs writing its own language”
~Pablo Neruda~

Poet Pablo Neruda travelled extensively.
Being intrigued by the sea he called
himself an “estuary sailor” who
to look at it from the dry land.

Zoe and I would rather be
“Pirates ruling the Sea.”

Both Pablo Neruda and his beloved spouse
Urrutia are buried outside the beautiful
Isla Negra home.

If you ever visit Isla Negra don’t forget
to visit Pablo Neruda.

“Look between the stone and the ocean”
wrote the famous poet in
“I Will Come Back.”

He-He-He go on a Halloween night
you may just get a glimpse
of the famous man himself.

I had a fabulous birthday party
just the day before Halloween.
I got a few nice presents and goodies.
The one I like the best is a red bone light.
It’s a present from the “Young Mistress”.
Empress Zoe Labrador and the felines
surprised me with a lot of goodies.

So did “Mistress Mommy”
and the “Lad Upstairs”!

He-He-He I call him the Food Hunter!

 “Hey Mommy were are the leftover goodies?
I’m sure, we did not eat them!”

“Hmm… good question Little Rascal.
Perhaps the Elf on the Shelf hid them
somewhere… but where I would not know.”

Grrrr…. I’m going to search soon
for that Elf on the Shelf Mommy!”

“You do that, Little Lion!” 🙂

“Later Mommy!”

First I like to tell about November 14th.

I went to a grooming salon.
I never like bathing very much.
Shampoo and me don’t agree.
Everyone was very nice but I was glad
to be back home again.

“Home is where the heart is!”
That’s where I feel “King of the Castle!”

The other day we got news from the North Pole!

Santa at the North Pole reported that

the Elf on the Shelf scouts are roaming
the land. It’s almost December,
Watch out for them!
The scouts report every night in December
to Santa about all that’s happening.

Here is a dazzling sweet cider recipe:


See you next time and if you have time
dazzle us with your
Elf on the Shelf story

Heartfelt thanks to everyone for the
animations, links
and the artists and video makers.

All other photos as usual by ”Mommy”
and the snappy photographer,
he-he-he that’s
“Little Rascal-Woofie” me!.


The Elves, the Gingerbread Man and more in

 the famous Dollywood Parade…
