A Huggy Christmas

The children made out like bandits and had a truly splendid holiday (“Mommy, Santa brought THOUSANDS of presents!!” was the first thing Q-ster said in the morning after scoping out the tree), but since this is my blog, I get to pick my favorite present to feature.

SwingDaddy got me a Squishable Octopus! Here, it’s posed with the tiger pillows that my parents got for Q-ster, Buster, and their cousin Remy.

For scale, here’s the micro dude.

And me.

And Buster again.

We find him very squishable and huggable indeed. After a multi-year moratorium on acquiring additional plush sealife, I am delighted to make an exception and welcome Octy to our home.

A big thank-you to my very understanding husband. Love you!

I am beyond amused that you had to put in place a moratorium against plush sealife.

Octy is very cute. Especially with little people next to him (her?).

Buster looked so comfortable in all three photos.

Octy is definitely worth lifting the moratorium for. I just want to reach through the screen and squish him. :)

Aww...I love Octy!

I am dying from the cuteness.

Happy birthday, my sweet friend.

Octy was the perfect way to lift that moratorium!
