Very Late Christmas Unboxing (Part 1)





Dear Readers,

Hello, it's me, Fudge!!!! I won't beat around the bush: You have ME to thank for today's post. Mommy told me, she is far too ashamed to ever write to you again, so I decided to take things into my own two paws and, finally, after four sleepless nights, seventeen jars of toffee (and a quick look into her list of secret passwords) I was able to access her blog account and write this entry. 

Do you know what happened to my Mommy? What happened to her was... ahem... 2018. 
She had at least four blog posts ready for uploading, but then 2018 came along... She really wouldn't want me to talk about it, but I think that you should know that 2018 has so far gifted her with a broken computer, a broken car, a broken heart, a lost job opportunity, a sick family pet (that has now died) and a sick family member. And there are a few other things that broke or turned yucky that I will not mention here in respect for my privacy... HER privacy, I mean!!! Ahem...

So: I hope you will enjoy this late, late, (late) christmas unboxing, even though my Mommy was gone for a long, long time and without saying a word. She really missed you guys and showing off cute pictures of me. Ahem... of Jemima and the Riversiders, of course. So don't be cross with her PLEASE, I will bearsonally make sure that she comes back regularly and also comments  on your lovely blog posts again.

Now let's have a look at some PRESENTS!!!!



Riversiders were arriving to see Nina open an enormous package from Sweet Berry Valley.



"This was sent from the place where my brother Munchie now lives! This is gonna be AWESOME!" shouted Crunchie at Marla Cinnamon through cookie-filled cheeks.



Hester Hogwart and I sat on top of the beautiful red parcel, drinking mulled wine. Ralfie Hazelnut and his sister Rona came to watch, too.



Look at this lovingly decorated box filled with wonderful things.



Everybody was oohing and aahing!



I bearsonally took it upon me to examine the box of sweets.



Then, Pickles and I bathed in them...



Aaaah, such bliss...! Pickles is telling me, he is keeping the toffee wrapped in green and gold for himself.



Look at this beautiful daisy I found with the sweets. Doesn't it suit me?



The little ones are checking out ANOTHER bag of sweets, as well as some beautifully wrapped presents. There seems to be something there for everyone!

Nina did not know then, that Cutata wanted us to unpack everything right away, so the little Sylvanians stood there aching from anticipation.



Come back next week to see what was inside all these!! 

(I know it's mean - maybe you should have a box of caramels to calm the nerves. It always helps ME...)



NOW let me show you what my other mother, Birgit, sent me. Uhh... us. 



A chocolate Saint Nicholas for everyone. Pickles was the first to finish his. The little glutton...



Birgit also sent this beautiful snowflake card. It is decorated with real diamonds... I think.



See me enjoying my super duper advent calendar with a life-sized picture featuring Birgit's children: Fluby is on the left and Rosey on the right.



I do miss waking up to a new bar of chocolate every morning!! *sniffle*



As you can see, we all had a great time and Quackie was only drunk for a few days after this. 

Come back next week for Part 2 and for some spring themed posts very soon!




Hugs and caramel kisses 
from your little buddy,
FUDGE.
