Happy New Year 2014!

Inky's New Year 2014

Happy Happy New Year! Now, I know it is almost February.  Since my family went to England for the holidays, I didn't have a chance to celebrate New Year.  My family didn't do presents this year, because we went on a big trip and bought some amazing souvenirs.  Still, some of my dear friends sent presents for me and I wanted to open them! I also refused to take down my New Year tree until I could open my gifts!

There were three adorable gifts under the tree when I came home from Russian Language Youth Group last night! There was a cute gift wrapped in gnome paper from my friend Aurora, a package from my dear friend Sophie, and a candy cane-wrapped gift from Coral.

First I decided to open Coral's gift. Hmm, what is it? When I shook it, lots of little pieces rattled around.

Wow! A Lego animal set! I love these sets so much. I have the turtle from the first series on my nightstand.  I can't wait to build the deer! Thank you Coral!

Next came Aurora's gift. Aurora and I are internet friends.  If you'd like to check out her blog, click here!

Wow!!! A family of Calico Critters! There was a black father cat and a calico mama and two daughters. How sweet!

I knew my parents would groan- they think I have too many Calico Critters, but they are so, so cute! I love these cats. The funny thing is, I already have the babies to this family! Now the babies will finally have a family! Thank you Aurora!!

Then it was time for my last gift, a lovely package from my French friend, Sophie. Sophie and I have been friends for many years and have a very good friendship. I miss her so much! I actually saw her in Washington DC earlier in the month, but I already miss her again!

Hurrah! Sophie's gift was three Playmobil pirates! Sophie knows me so well. Merci beaucoup Sophie!

Here are all my gifts! Don't the kitties look silly next to the very serious Playmobil pirates? I can't wait to play with my new toys.

    I'm so glad you like the Playmobil pirates! I thought they were really cute and perfect for your collection. The kitties from Aurora are cute, too. I think the Calico Critter kitties are the cutest, but we're all partial to kitties here.

    I miss you already, too! I'm so glad that we got to see each other again and am looking forward to the next time!

    That red dress looks really nice on you, by the way.

    Love,
    Sophie

    And your dress is AMAZING!!! I'm asking for one like that for Christmas.

    I like LEGO Friends too, Mother and I collect them together, and have a number of sets now!
