Eric's Day Flashback Secret Paw 2011.

It's a New Year and so our flashbacks are also starting a new year with 2011.
I haven't taken part in the Secret Paw exchange since I have been unwell, so I thought it would be a good idea to start with one that Eric and I shared.

Secret Paw 2011.

Our Secret Paw arrived today. It smells good but mum said we had to wait for dad to come home before we could open it.

Flynn: After waiting for dad I couldn't wait to see what smelled so good. Our package came from Baby Patches.

I had to climb in before it was even unpacked.

My new bed!

Mum had to take everything out from under me. Even Eric who had told mum he didn't want his photo taken came over to see what we got.

Eric: Wow there are some great things here.

Flynn: There certainly are. look at these great nippy trees.

Eric: And we got my favourite.....Greenies!!!

Dad played with us with the little silver mousies. We both love them because they flip around when you throw them.

Flynn: Did I mention the nippy Christmas trees? They smell really strong and mmmmmm nippy.

It's no good trying to get in that bag Eric, you won't fit.

Flynn: I gave one of the silver mousies a good chewing.

Eric: Haha, very funny.

Yeah, I suppose you think that is double funny.

We got some great stuff from Baby Patches, two shiny silver mousies, a soft duck and a dog, a ball and a fev-ver butt mousie that rattles, two bags of Greenies, a lovely card, and did I mention the nippy trees?

Flynn: This fev-ver butt mousie is lots of fun too.

Dad throws it for me to catch.

Eric: All this excitement has made me tired. I am going to nap with one of the nippy trees before nip head Flynn grabs them both.

Flynn: I like my new box.

And did I tell you we got nippy trees?

Eric: I am going to keep my paw on silver mousies tail so he doesn't escape.
Thanks Baby Patches, we both love our Secret Paw package.
Thanks Praline and mom Paula for doing such a great job organising Secret Paws for everyone.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

So Flynn is the box lover. Poor Eric ... for having his pictures taken and for being posed with micey on his head ;) The boys are certainly gorgeous ... each time I see pictures, I notice a new unique marking ... and I love getting to know both boys.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I wish I'd gotten to know Eric while he was alive ... and it breaks my heart for poor Flynn because he must miss Eric as much as you do (even if Eric was always pouncing on him).

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Such a nice box for you boys! Flynn, I love how you made yourself comfy on the box immediately. :-) I wish I had known Eric.

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! You got nippy trees, didn't you! Even though you didn't mention them, I could see them. You lucked out having Baby Patches send your Secret Paws since she had a whole store full of goodness.
