My Christmas 2008

The Bernard Bunch does Christmas Day in installments ... one day as the Bernard Bunch, another day as the French Bernard Bunch and its members, another day as the British Bernard Bunch and its members, and another for those who couldn't make any of the above Christmas appointments. Lets go into my room on the morning of Thursday 25th December 2008 ....


As you can see, I was very, very excited. This is 9 o'clock in the morning ....



A Princess needs a lot of beauty sleep man!!!


But eventually I did wake up ...









Then I sat on my potty for a while as William and Nathan ransacked the tree for gifts ...





I got a microphone! One which helps me to understand that I can master sounds and movements of my mouth ... like, Yeah! I can talk, man! You know that!!!



But I was polite, and accepted the gift as graciously as a Princess should ...

Papa helped me to open a gift from William ... a weird strange green furry creature which really tickled my fancy!!!

I got new clothes .... anyone who reads my blog regularly knows EXACTLY who these clothes came from ... aren't they OUT OF THIS WORLD????!!!!

Mama was really chuffed to get these!!!! And intends to order more when the seamstress stops dropping sproglettes ....



Don't you just LURVE this style???

Of course, all the more elegant for being sported by a Princess ...

I fell in and out of my new ... um ... truck thing ... its fun ... it slides everywhere ... and I have to work on my balance quite a lot ... I suspect that's why Mama and Papa got it for me ...
I got a beautiful book from my Gramma in England!

And I had a great time playing with the frog in the book, which was also a puppet ... I was greatly amused by this little creature!

I opened a fluorescent pink gift from my Auntie Sianie in London ....

and it contained a bright pink ball with a face ... I LOVED IT!!!

I had a yummy Christmas lunch of plastic circus animals ...

And I even opened one gift without any 'authorisation' from anyone .... I really got the gist of gift-unwrapping this year!!!

A new coat! which I proceeded to insist on wearing ... ALL DAY!!!


I enjoyed a Christmas day full of hugs and kisses with all my family

I opened a HUGE gift from my Mamie (French Grandmother) and Papi (French grandfather) which my godfather Franck helped me to open ...

Cousin Lena helped me a bit too ...


And once I'd got the gist of things, I was like a factory-worker, unwrapping presents willy nilly!

I had lots of warm moments with my gorgeous God-father Franck

Who gave me a beautiful gift which wasn't recorded on camera but which I use a LOT - one of those funny board things that you write on and then wipe the shapes off .... I have a great time with this ... though to be honest my brothers keep nicking it off me!!!
Well folks.... on this festive note I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful friends out there for a wonderful 2008 blogglingly spent together. When Mama started my blog some years ago, she never imagined that we would make so many beautiful, beautiful friends out there. Thank you all for liking my life, for caring for my well-being, and for providing my Mama with the moral support she sometimes needs. You are beautiful. And there are a few of you out there who know that you are especially special. Thank you.
AND ROCK ON 2009!!!!!!

Dearest Princess, I do not think I have seen more photos of you smiling than I have on this post! Very exciting and pleasing to see you smile - you are truly learning to work your mouth, eh?

I was also very impressed with your persistence and skill in unwrapping gifts. You show such regal maturation!

Finally, you are cuter than ever! Hugs and kisses from Texas. Dr. B.
