Meet Marty

Merry day after Christmas!  So much anticipation...so much preparation...so much excitement...and then suddenly Christmas day is done.  I've been enjoying my time sharing it all with Liam...here are a few things I hadn't shared yet...

Meet "Greenie", Liam's Elf on the Shelf...Greenie magically moves from one spot to another to help Santa keep an eye on Liam...
...he's been in a few interesting spots...

Liam with his green slime...couldn't resist sharing this pic...

Christmas morning, we found a note from Santa next to the empty plate of Christmas cookies we left for him...Liam read it out loud and was thrilled with his personalized note...
...Spiderman...Liam's favorite action hero...
 ...and Master Magician Liam...
 ...fun with Tawny, Trevor's niece...
 ...Christmas dinner at Tracy & George's (Trevor's sister)...it was a fantastic meal with Toni's (Trevor's mom) traditional home made manicotti.  

Now I'd like to introduce you to Marty, Liam's new pet red footed tortoise...
 
  ...a cute little guy and Liam loves him!  Welcome to the family Marty!

I hope your holiday (whatever you may celebrate) was amazing, and you've had some time to relax after all the festivities.  I am not too proud to say I am just a little teeny weeny bit tired, LOL!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
Lise

I'm glad you had such a good Christmas with your family and grandson. Grandchildren make it even more special. Mine are almost grown but I still enjoy every minute of it. I know he'll enjoy Marty for many days to come and the both of them are so cute. Happy New Year. Hugs xo

Looks like a good time was had by all. When I was young I had a desert tortoise I named Pansy because he (she?) at pansy flowers while walking from the back yard out to the grass on the side yard to nibble. - Margy
