we went to the international plaza mall. I love all the stores there and it is very big. For lunch we had Capital Grill(Steak!) and for dinner, California Pizza Kitchen.
Very yummy!!!

Here is a picture of me and watson being silly.

Today, I sent you a postcard that I picked out.

Sorry for the bad quality picture, the car was moving. Andrea is still learning not to shake the camera :D

Today guess who I stumbled across! An ostrich! His name is Strechy though, not Aplhonse :(

He is my new friend. I told him all about toyvoyagers, he may want to travel too :)

Here is a picture of him and I.

I arrived in sunny California on the same day as Barclay and Purple Bun! Babylonie and Violette's TV, Camille were already here.

I helped decorate the tree and we all got to sample some of the fudge Violette made.

Camille and I helped set up the Nativity scene! :)

Violette came up with the idea to have a Secret Santa gift exchange. Its where everyone picks a name and then you get that person a gift. I picked Barclay! Don't tell anyone, its a secret!

Christmas was so much fun!
On Christmas eve, it was hard to fall asleep! We were so excited for Christmas.

When we woke up there were presents just for us under the tree! Santa even left presents,
I can't believe he found me all the way in California.

Camille got me a present for the gift exchange! She made me a scarf!

Violette's brother got a boat, and its just our size! We wanted to test it out in her pool, but it was too cold. :(

On New Years Eve, we stayed up until midnight watching movies :)

Then we put streamers on Violette’s tree, which is a tradition her family has. Doesn’t it look good? :)

Hello everyone!

I arrived safely to Foster Care Home in Finland! I met many kind toyvoyagers allready; Gary Boldie, Banyo, Leonard, Twix and BellaKitten. I'm the first Foster Toy here  B) I feel quite special... My Foster Mom promised I could stay as long as necessary. Maybe one day I can return home but in the meanwhile she'll take care of me. I think I'll like it here :)

Now I will rest from my long journey  :)

Merry Christmas from snowy Finland!

It's Christmas Eve! The day Finns celebrate Christmas. In the morning we had rice porridge (a tradition), for lunch/dinner we had traditional ham and casseroles (gratins) etc. I spent this Christmas with Gary Boldie, Leonard, Hueso, Banyo and FoxForce.

In this link, you'll find some traditional Finnish Christmas recipes :)

Later in the evening Santa came for a visit! He brought us some gifts as well. We all got "stamp magnets"! Mine has a  Finnish flag stamp on it  :)

The rest of the night we ate some more - also and especially candy  :rolleyes: My host had got us a box of Finnish chocolate. We didn't leave much for the next day...  :)

Merry Christmas everyone! Iloista joulua!

My Foster Mom took us Foster Toys on a field trip to the Old Town of Porvoo! The Old Porvoo is a small part of the city, the part that was built first. Those red shorehouses are the most wellknown sight of Porvoo. Porvoo got its town rights in 1346. Now it has a bit under 50 000 inhabitants and an area of 654 km2. It's situated only 50km (less than 1h drive) east from the capital, Helsinki.

It was a fun trip! Foster Mom promised we'll go see the newer parts of Porvoo too :)

EDIT: Alfonz no longer is in the FosterCareHome, he was sent home
