Christmas in January

I sent a lil message out via bookface before Christmas to our American friends.  I thought Ethan might LOVE one of those elusive Zhu Zhu pet hamsters that were flying off the shelves in the states.  Well.  Some people ignored us (as they normally do) and others simply lost the plot.  Tara lost the plot.  She became obsessed with hunting hamsters, made friends with shop assistants, visited EVERY Walmart, Target and Toys R Us in coastal San Diego and eventually came face to face with her quarry.  And then she shopped.  And then she shipped.

This is the result; (click on images to enlarge)

Thank you so much Tara, you are the kindest, most remembering-est friend stateside that we have and Summer is just not the same without you!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
