Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Today we shellebrate our favorite crafty medium:  yarn!

Mom’s favorite yarn for making amigurumi (knit or crocheted plushies) and my Halloween costumes is Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn.  Lily Sugar’n Cream is a 100% cotton yarn that comes in all the colors of the rainbow and keeps its shape the best out of all the yarns Mom has tried.  Plus, it’s super affordable:  Mom can usually get a whole ball for $1!

🍂  Happy October!  🎃

October means Halloween is right around the corner!  What will Jack Shellington be for Halloween this year?

〰️💀〰️

🎶 THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN, THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN
Kirby GRUMPs in the dead of night!

This is Tort-o-ween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of cute
It’s our town, everybody GRUMP
In this town of Tort-o-ween

THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN, THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN

TORT-O-WEEN!  TORT-O-WEEN!  TORT-O-WEEN!
In this town we call home
Everyone GRUMP to the tortoise song!  
🎶

May the Fourth be with all those racing today!

My homemade BB-8 costume is from Halloween 2016!

Finally, a day warm enough for me to go outside!  Mom and I took advantage of the good weather by going to the park.  The park has my favorite pavement—it is so delicious that I spent the entire time trying to nom every single white speck!  (Mom was too busy making sure I didn’t swallow any rocks to take photos of my pavement nomming this time.)

I also met lots of new friends, including a couple of little girls who gave me the nicest cuddles.  I chilled in their hands and basked in the attention while they told me how cute I am.  Now that’s what I call proper shellebrity treatment!

When I got really hungry, I tried nomming Mom’s shoes.  Luckily, Mom had packed a snack for me, so I got to enjoy a big piece of chicory while watching all the people go by.  After that, I GRUMPed at Mom until she took me home for a nap!

Introducing … the cutest, grumpiest, and hungriest Bob-omb ever!  Did you know Bob-ombs run on radicchio fuel?  I was enjoying a delicious refueling when clumsy Mario almost ran into me with a Koopa Troopa shell!  @nintendo
