Knut by Gudrun

Dear friends! After some grey and rainy weeks we can again enjoy the Christmas decorations and lights. Lets hope the Advent time will be a pleasant waiting for the highlight of the season! Of course, there's also a little story for you:

Dear Vesa - happy birthday/hjertelig til lykke med fødselsdagen.

Dear Mervi, lots of greetings from Copenhagen. Ivan got his X-mas-gift from some Zoo-guests yesterday, lots of ice with piece of meat. He liked it, and he had a lot of guests including me. Noel is in her Chambre separé.Cross my fingers and so does the Zoo-staff too.
The cats are doing well.

Lots of seasongreetings to you all. Merry Christmas from Inge and 3 cats

Nice to meet you here again :) How are the dogs doing?
Beau is a lovely boy.

Wasja managed to get upstairs and is resting under our bed. I met Ferdi next to our bed too. He looked like a hunter. I brought him downstairs. Now he is resting under the tree.

Hello, Dear Alle!

Dear Vesa - Happy Birthday and Cheers!

Dear Mervi - Thank you so much for your lovely Christmas greetings and the charming Knuti collages!
They made me feel like joining you all at Table No 5 again.

It's the best place to spend the longest night of the year, isn't it?

Dear Alle - I hope you have all been well, safe and sound.

Ralph - You are in our thoughts during this Christmas. I hope you can spend the Christmas Day with your friend. I'm sure your teddy friends will help you to have a pleasant Christmas Eve. Yes, you're right - Hope really gives us hope!!

Patricia - Oh cat, your sweet Beau is having busy days trying to prevent the tree decorations to run away. I'm sure he's expecting to be richly rewarded for all his efforts. :D

Britta-Gudrun - I join you and raise my glass for Vesa! He deserves to be celebrated - not only because he has a birthday but for his patience with his 'polar bear wife'! :D Cheers!

I raise my glass to the birthday by VESA in the circle of his lovely cats and to you, dear Mervi, for the beautiful cat album with Mimi and Nalle!

Hello Dear All, from a very dark Leuven (bwaahhaaa, I do not like it). When I woke up this morning at 7:00 a.m., it looked as it was only 3:00 a.m. or something like that. Dark, Dark, Dark!!!! And on top of that, even raining.
But when I came downstairs, Beau (and no longer such a baby) did just the same as a few days before: garland out of the tree and pluche polar bear on the ground. And again, he was trying to convince me that the garland did not behave as should and that the polar bear was on his way to escape. Ja ja, and of course, I immediately believe these stories.
Today, I did a thorough cleaning in the kitchen and some ironing. Tomorrow, a walk with Joelle and Teun and hopefully some Xmas hopping and writing my cards.
Britta-Gurdun, thank you so much for the lovely card.
And very important message: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite Viking.

Oh dear I forgot to wish Vesa all the best on this special day. But I am now coming to put
this right and will raise a glass to you.
Uncle Sergei will I am sure have a special treat in store.
Mimi and Nalle will be enjoying it with you and Mervi

Ludmila and Knuti-Judi Thank you for the good wishes

I am hoping to be staying with a friend of mine on Christmas Day. He helped me
with the pictures for my Mini-Knut story. He has his wife and her mother, plus many cats living there, so it should be a very special Christmas.
On Christmas Eve I will be surrounded by my bears and other animals remembering all the wonderful times with my parents. The thought that they might now at last be together again is very comforting. Hope is not just a small white bear in Antibes, but the greatest gift in a troubled world

Annemarie - I hope Uncle Sergej doesn't make the drinks too strong! Even though the Finns love the strong stuff it just might be too much .... :D

Ludmila - How do our cats always manage to have that 'I don't know what happened' look on their faces! I don't think even Barnaby and Montalbano and many other famous detectives could suspect them. :D

Chris - I have so many email adresses and I guess half of them are not valid anymore so I'll try to figure out which ones are. :D

Knuti-Judi - I'm sure your cats are having cosy moments by the fire. I can picture the scene. :D

its funny, that you forgot the cards yesterday.
But today they arrived and they are very nice! :)

Annemarie - ich habe noch ein Croissant gefunden.

Again its very warm, about 14°C, and was sunny.
We had the last white Christmas in winter 2010. ;)

Sydney looks always innocent :)
Ferdi does not look innocent if he meets Wasja. Ferdi has very nasty mien in such moments. I say to him: keep going and push him at his bottom. He goes and then his face is innocent again :)

Vesa: Happy Birthday to you. Have a wonderful day with your family. Onkel Sergej is just creating a special drink for your birthday celebration at the Knuipe tonight. He is talking about a "Vesas Hopfenauflauf Deluxe". That must be great!

Hab leider heute viel zu tun. Grr!
