Sometimes, just sometimes,  you catch your pets looking like total dorks. At the risk of turning this ito a photo blog, I bring you Scout. Scout is my 3 year old Sun Conure, and a couple days ago I caught her trying to imitate the cockatiels she loves to hang out with this "one feather up" feather 'do. And no, I definitely did not do this to her--I found her like this one morning, acting like everything was normal (clamoring for treats, of course).

Day 25: Merry Christmas!

...and this was after one round of gifts had been opened!

We had a wonderful Christmas with J's family and my own. Pictured here is my sister's tree, after the second wave of gifts (from my parents and J and myself) ascended upon it. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and New Year!

Day 24: All is calm, all is bright

J's parents' backyard. Nothing really says "sleep in heavenly peace" like this does in the winter.

Day 23: Spice

Westerners may have holly and holly berries to symbolize the holidays, but we Thais have chili peppers.

Day 22: Tinsel and Foil

These gifts won't wrap themselves.

Day 21: Pa rup pum pum pum

J's relatives from New Orleans came up last Sunday to celebrate the holidays with the rest of us. His mother always puts together a beautiful tree complete with everyone's favorite ornaments and decorations. Here, you can see the drummer boy, which fascinated J as a child (and is ironic considering that "The Little Drummer Boy" is one of J's least favorite Christmas songs).

Day 20: Belle

Belle likes to try to look sad and pitiful just so she can score more gifts. (Mom made her a new sweater--sssh.)

Day 19: Violet

If parrots got excited about the holidays, they'd never tell.

Day 18: Ruffles and Shine

 I finally made it to my desktop computer, where there were no glitches uploading photos! Woohoo! It's been a busy, eventful, but fun couple of weeks, and without further adieu, I bring you the rest of my December photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Day 18: Getting ready for J's company's holiday party--bring on the feathers and glitz!
