Merry Christmas Saber! It's Been Truly Wonderful!
It has been a greyt Christmas Day, so far! I was watching to see if Mom was going to burn the Christmas roast or not! Heeheehee! Not because she's a bad cook but because there are so many distractions! As good as these "distractions" are, they still make her not pay attention to what she's doing! I can't help but laugh!

I had a special stocking of my very own today! Mom had hung it on the fireplace for Santa Birdy's visit. It has MY name on it & also an African grey on it, too! It was an awesome gift from Ceasaur & his good Momma that I have one at all! They gave it to me last year. To me, that was enough because it was filled with some cool shreadable foot toys, a cotton perch with a big fuzzy knot at the end & some mixed nuts! Mom is trying to introduce me to some walnuts that she helped crack a little bit. I think these walnuts are too big for me. They maybe extra jumbo sized because they're as big as my head! I could bowl quite successfully with a few strategic holes drilled in specific places!

This year Mom didn't ask for anything for herself. She just wanted stuff that is to help take care of me. She's been asking for a long time but she wasn't taken seriously. This year she was! WE both got a digital scale that is for measuring birds or if Mom takes off the perch, it can measure food or small packages or letters! That came from her daughter Shanna! The other big gift is a travel cage that can be taken apart & stored flat! Mom is wanting it put together so I will be getting used to it. This would be a way she could take me outside but not restrained just here on the deck. It weighs only 15lbs. & she'll be able to walk me around the yard! I'll be able to go swing with Mom or sit on the bench in the front garden with her or just enjoy the back deck if we want to! I will even be able to go places in the car, too! It's so exciting but scary at the same time!

As nice as all that was, my favorite part of the day is that shortly after all the gifts were opened, Mom's mate had to elevate his leg & apply the ice. That means to his bed he goes for about 2 to 3 hrs. Today he was forgoing those exercises that just seem to make him hurt all the time. Thank goodness! Anyway, Mom took me out so I could cringe at all the new stuff I got today. Heehee, isn't that what greys are supposed to do? Must keep up the good front after all. I was out and I peeped at Mom. She looked at me & I held up my foot to invite her to pick me up & she did! I could hear her heart beating so fast from her wrist! I walked up to near her shoulder & put my head down for scritches. Mom gave me good scritches for close to an hour!! I would lay down my head & my eyes rolled back! Mom said she wished she had a picture of me to show everybody but why waste the special time? It was our "Christmas time" together...just me & her.

I hope your Christmas has been exciting, too! Big hugs to all, SamIAm
