The Twelfth Day of Catmas




Jack, the Pumpkin King is our twelfth and final victim model in the series.
Fitting, eh?

Greetings Rehab Readers, and Happy Christmas Eve! We've been looking very forward to this day for many reasons! Could it be the excitement of the season? Yes! The mountain of shiny gifts under the tree? Yes! The extra day tacked onto the weekend? Yes! The incredible smells wafting from the kitchen? Yes! The gathering of family and friends around the fire? Yes!

The fact that we can stop putting hats on struggling angry cats? (Maybe?)

Now, a little back story: we shop at a lot of ethnic food markets. We like authentic ingredients when we whip up foreign cuisine. The humorous part comes when you try to read the translated-into-English-kinda instructions.
"Make duck be patient when slathering."
I am not responsible for dried duck's behavior, thank you.
"The sheen is iridescent then done."
What?
We laugh like maniacs and sometimes make up our own combinations.
This little tidbit of information will help you understand how a brainstorming session with me and the daughter on instant message went south.

If you have a teen or pre-teen on your list absolutely nuts about Japanese Manga, the link below is to free printables that, boxed with glue and good paper shears would make a great quick gift!
These were made by the score by the teen gaggle after cookie baking last Saturday.
And you will earn serious cool points.
Japanese 3D Paper Figures 
(That's little paper doll is who Savannah's bud is costumed as!)

Have a wonderful Christmas Eve everyone!

I will miss the struggling angry cats. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster.....

Merry Christmas CRAZIES!

Deb said...

Those cats look as if they are plotting thier revenge - I think you should all sleep with one eye open tonight ;)

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Maddie Lumpkin said...

Well Jack looks thrilled ! He looks just like my Rudy. I hope your cats live inside, cause if word got out they dressed like that they may get beat up by neighborhood strays! Have a fun and safe holiday!

Nooo!!! I thought Jack learned his lesson about trying to steal Xmas!! He's struggling because he's gotta go take care of Oogey Boogey. Muwahahahaha.

Ethnic food stores are the best. I'm lucky enough to have several in my 'hood just down the street.

Have a very happy Xmas!

Hahahee! Glorious craziness, I didn't know you spoke fluent Engrish! Jack is gorgeous, he is a mini lion. Thanks for the fantastic link, I know several manga-loving teens who will be happy for such iridescent activity.
