let me introduce to you... FURBY POPPINS!

OK.. so at my house we are all a little nuts.. maybe even more so then a "little"! In fact we've had dozens of people tell us that we should have our own reality tv show.. sort of on the same line as the ozborns or roseann (I must say I didnt like either of those shows..) but I can definitely understand why some people think we might be funnyand if a camera were to follow us around for a few days there would surely be some very laughable times but, on the other hand it would be pretty boring at times too. We are all a bit impulsive and pretty silly, and probably yes.. some of us most likely fall into the "tiny bit ecentric" catagory. hey.. it anyone out there wants to make a tv show about us.. as long as I get rich for it.. I'd be willing to give it a shot! (haha!) (NOT!)

So.. Miss Bethany (who is 24) for years has been saying how much she wants a chinchilla.. or as she calls them an enchinchilla.. kind of like an enchilada. This year as I was trying to figure out what to get her for christmas, I couldnt think of anything that would be exciting to her. then I started thinking about the chinchilla idea, not sure if it was a good one or not. but I looked on craigslist and low and behold.. I found some very nice people who had one, but felt that they werent giving her the attention she needed. So, my daughter Jen and I drove out to buffalo to check her out.. unprepared to bring her back with us, they offered to follow us home with the cage which is the size of a large dresser. So now, I've had this sweet little (sweet but very messy) chinchilla living with us, hiding in my craft room for a month. I've grown very fond of her and almost hate to see her go. Bethany was ecstatic about her, and cant wait to take her home! She has remamed her Furby poppins snuffleupagus, hippopotomus... and sometimes elephant. (I dont understand either... but if you know bethany, you dont question her, you just say, "ok Bethany .. thats nice!"
Bethany loves her new little friend, which I am quite happy about because I ve been thinking for the last couple weeks that maybe it had been a mistake to buy it for her. Not only does Bethany like little "furby poppins snuffupugus hippopotamus sometimes elephant", but I do think she likes Bethany as well.

Figgy and frannie have enjoyed furby this past month and furby loved them too. It was raised with cats and was used to playing with them. Figgy and frannie would stick their feet in as far as they could to touch her and then they'd both stick there noses through the bars nose to nose. they would lay on top of the cage and they were all quite comfortable with each other. I think they might miss her when she goes (hopefully today)!

In other news.. went to see blindside last night.. great movie! Sandra Bullock is perfect for the role. see it if you get the chance.. and its a true story!

I'll be back later! see yas then!

Oh what a laugh! You are a wonderful unique person and I love coming to your blog Viv. What would we do if we did not have our furry friends both great and small? I'm here in Washington living with a grumpy granny Chihuahua, two fluffy pom dogs that smile at me even when they are going potty. One thinks she is an infant with great needs and Tazmo is a 2 yr old guard dog that thinks potted plants are alive...go is good and amusing!

Hehee! I used to be a vet tech and we would see these guys all the time. Chinchillas are great jumpers. I'm sure it has tons of personality--what a lucky daughter, to have you!

Hey Viv!!! Finally got a chance to stop by! And you are so cute!! Your family is just FUN!! I love that little fluff ball, I first thought, that's a funny little bunny, hmmm... So glad your sweetie loved her gift, I'm sure you felt so happy about getting it after all.
I've always wanted a bunny but I'm not as brave as you folks, I'm probably missing out on alot of fun, teehee :)

Hope you had a great Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year filled with lots of crafting and fun times! Thank you for your visits too, I love seeing your cute little face :)

Hi Vivian,
Thank you for swinging by my place today and for the sweet comment you left. I didn't really expect anyone to watch the "whole" thing, but it put a smile on my face that you did! : )
These pic of the three little friends here cracks me up. They are SO ADORABLE!!!
So glad you had a wonderful Christmas day with family. And how smart you were to take a 2 day break from your diet plan for Christmas. I've always heard that that's the way holidays should be handled while loosing weight. Congrats BTW for the 32 lbs. so far!!! Kudos!!

OK lots of questions...
How long do they live for?
Are they friendly?
Do they want to be around you?
Are they intelligent?
Do they smell?

Good lord I thought that thing was a pair of slippers minus a mate! How funny. What a great gift too. How soon before you get your own?

Oh my goodness, I loved seeing the pictures of sweet Bethany! I haven't seen her in years, but I'd recognize her anywhere.. how could I miss that adorable nose of hers?? Tell Bethany that Mrs. S. says hello and that I think of her often (and always warmly♥)

Vivian! I adore your house so much! The green windows just "sleigh" me! Your tree is perfectly perfect. I would so definitely watch a show about you. You would become famous for your off-camera laugh floating into the room. You just are the best! What a fun, and totally TV like post today about your daughter's pet and the kitties. Loved it! I'm here in Ohio waiting for crafting inspiration; so get busy Queen of Crafts! E
