Joy to the World

Horray!!! Our buddy Jeter Harris is finally home!!! It just wasn't Christmas knowing that our dear friend was out in the cold and wet and not inside with his family. We are so happy that JH's mom was able to lure him back in with the delicious tuna dinner she made for him! Yay Jeter's Mommy! Jeter, please do not ever go away again, ok?

Belated Christmas Wishes

Meowy Christmas! We hope everykitty and their beans had a great Christmas Day. We are sorry we did not get to post sooner or to visit more of you to extend our holiday wishes. We had a house full of beans on Christmas Day as Mommy and Daddy cooked a christmas feast for lots of our family. It was a very late night and then yesterday mommy and daddy said they were "recuperating" so nobody would help us do our bloggie posts. So, we just decided to deal with it and lay around with them and the blurp yesterday. So, today we will start to catch up as we can. Hope everyone had a wonderful wonderful day!!

We got Adan and Lego's card on Christmas Eve! Thanks Adan and Lego!!

Our cousin Suzy on Christmas Eve. We think she was doing some mighty fine snoopervising.

Relaxing on the day after Christmas

Mr. Chen playing with the oh so cool yarn toy Grandma Kathy made him.

Here is our blurpy girl, Sophie, playing with our new toy. Mommy said we had to share with her though.

Here she is playing with our old toys. Boy, she gets a whole bunch of fun new toys from Santa and all she wants to play with is our toys. Oh well... Maybe this means mommy won't get mad if we play with her toys too.

Mancat Monday

Mommy has been trying to upload this photo to stoopid blogger for a day and a half now. STOOPID blogger...

So, Happy Belated Mancat Monday!!

We forgot to mention in our last post that we had so much fun getting our Secret Paw package ready to send out! Our Secret Paw this year was Laila and Minchie. We had so much fun shopping and getting their package ready. We hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it together for them!! Meowy Christmouse Laila and Minchie!!

P.S. Mommy says here is a funny story for the beans.... When she was at the post office, she had about 8 different packages to mail including our secret paw package. She was doing the labels and realized that she let us draw all over the one to some of our bean family in Arizona. We wrote "Shhhhh... It's Your Secret Paw" and "Meowy Christmouse" and some other stuff. Mommy did a quick check and saw that and thought oh well... it's going to our beans in Az anyway. Then she drew on Laila and Minchie's package just like we drew for them on the package that went to our beans. Ha! Mommy had a good laugh about that one.

Holiday wages

Here I am blurpy sitting again. I ask for higher wages on the holidays though!!

Oh what fun, Saturday!!

Here we are waiting for the man in the blue shorts and the man in the brown shorts to come back again....

Oh what fun! What a great week it has been. We have been so tickled to receive everyone's cards in the mail!! Thank you so much! We LOVE LOVE LOVE to receive these holiday cards and greetings from our friends. For a while we were getting more than mommy and daddy (hee hee).

We are also very happy because the book we won from Kimo & Sabi, Dewey, also arrived from the man in the brown shorts this week.

It's a busy week coming up this week so we just want to say now how much we love all our friends in the cat blogosphere and how much you all mean to us!!! Happy holidays to you and your beans!!!

Very Belated Dare

We are very late in posting this but Ollie wanted to take on the Pablo's Dare in The Cat Realm's I Dare You All, Part 4, #3. We know it has been a really really long time (over 1 month) to post this but mommy had some issues with the um, "props". Anyway, at long last... here it is mate!!

Ollie's Accepting Pablo's Dare

These Steve and Terry Irwin dolls were purchased many years ago by Daddy for Mommy for Christmas. We miss you, Steve!!!

Also, on another note, Mommy is a little upset lately because she changed our blog roll to include all the wonderful kitties in the blogosphere and somehow when we used the complete one it seems to have left out several kitties whose bloggies we like to visit. Unfortunately, mommy did not save the old blog roll which she helped us create manually so we have to go and sort through the new blog roll with her to make sure everyone gets back on there. We are very sorry if you were on "Our Blogging Cat Friends" before and are not on there. We're getting mommy to work on it soon!

Holiday Cards

Wowie!! We got our first Christmas card of the season!! Thank you, Lilly Lu!!! How sweet!!! We are very excited because mommy helped us make our cards this year (unlike last year where she thought she could get away with just making a digital card for all our friends). However, we are a little worried because we do not have everyone's addresses. We have a few but not a lot. If you would like a card from us, please feel free to send us your address. You can send it to chenandollie [at] gmail [dot] com. Or, if somebody knows of an easy way to get everyones' addresses, please let us know, ok? Thanks!!

Um, Mommy is a little bit upset because we got a Christmas card before she and daddy and blurpy did but we told her a card for us is like a card for the whole family (sort of) so that seemed to make her feel a little better again.

Thank you, Lilly Lu!!! You have made us feel very very festive!!

What a week!!

We are so happy and so excited around these parts this week!! It's been quite a week - the week to top all weeks actually. Mommy and Daddy were ecstatic about our new President Elect Barack Obama. We are too! It means that EVERYONE no matter your gender, color, sex, or species will be considered equals and that anything is possible. It means that the United States can finally show its face to the world again and redeem some of its pride by now showing that we practice what we preach about democracy, about equality, about human rights, tolerance, about the real American Dream. Check it out - front pages of world papers say it all, really! It means so much, this historic election, that it's almost impossible to describe the joy felt around the world by so many. We must say however we are a little disappointed in his first executive decision to get a woofie in the White House. Let's hope this is the last of his bad decisions as President.

In addition to this humongous news, Mommy had some pretty big news of her own. She stopped going out hunting for green papers so she could be home all day long with US!! Her official first day home with us was on Monday so it's been our first full week together. This is very exciting for us as it means she can help us with our blogging more often again now, it means our food bowl will never go empty again during the daytime and it means we have someone to play with and cuddle us all day long now. Oh, and Mommy says it means she can be with the blurpy, too. Whatever mommy. We know why you REALLY stopped hunting...

Finally, the squirrels are going bonkers hiding their dumb nuts out in our flower pots on the back deck. It's that time of year, when they get a little crazy and start hording their foods and we get to watch and chase them. Though we are not allowed outside, the dumb squirrels get really brazen and run right along the back deck right in front of us. So this gives us lots of chance to chase them on the other side of the windows and to have staring contests with them. It is very fun!! Above are some photos of Mr. Chen chasing squirrels.

We hope everykitty and their families are also having fantastic weeks and happy weekends to all!

Election Day 2008

Mommy and Daddy and our blurpy girl got to vote this am. We are excited that it is looking very promising for an Obama win at this hour. Mommy says that finally we might actually have an intelligent, sensitive, thoughtful, genuine person into the highest office in the land again. Hooray for President Obama!!

Halloween Contest

We finally sat on mommy's head long enough for her to "help" us with our costumes this past weekend. BUT, look what she did??!! Do you believe that woman?? How humiliating... Well, this is the entry she entered into the 3rd Annual Cat Blogosphere Halloween Costoom Contest anyway. Gee thanks, Mommy...
