Merry Kerfa

I love Christmas, but I call it "Kerfa"

I saw Santa the other day. Mummy and Daddy took me to meet him at the shopping mall a couple of weeks ago. I sat on his knee and he gave me a storybook. Then last week I also saw him at playgroup. He gave me a stamp on my hand and some chocolates. Then last night Santa CAME TO OUR HOUSE! I didn't see him but he left me and Victoria lots of presents.

Santa gave me a Dora tricycle to ride outside, and Aunty Lou gave me a Dora ride-on car to ride inside.

20071225g KirfaI also got...
  • 4 Dr Seuss books, a moving pictures book, a book about colours, The Little Engine That Could, a Spot book, Just Me & My Dad, some Little Princess books, and a peekaboo book

  • 3 top & pants outfits, 4 dresses, a geek t-shirt, a summer hat, a pair of sandals, and my favourite Dora PJ's

  • And I got a puzzle and some DVD's (Sesame Street and Electic Company). I also got a Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy doll, but Mummy said I have to give one of them to my sister.

My sister got lots of presents too. Mostly she got clothes. But she is too little to open the presents so I was allowed to open all of hers as well. Cool.

Daddy took me to the playground on my trike and I played there. I played hopscotch and I played with the sticks and stones. Who needs expensive presents anyway...

I really wish it was Kerfa every day.

Baby Sister

I have a new baby sister. Her name is Victoria. I call her W'Torah. I love to cuddle her and kiss her and hold her.

I have a book called The New Baby. In the book, the baby grabs Little Critter's hand and nose. I want W'Torah to grab my nose too so I like to put my nose right up to her face so she will see it. Sometimes she sucks on it. Sometimes I like to lick her too.

She doesn't do much right now. She cries a lot and sleeps a lot. Mummy and Daddy are always telling me to leave her alone because she is sleeping. It's not fair.

I can't wait for her to grow up so that I can play with her.

Here is a picture of the two of us together...

Look what I did !

20071028d Kathleen's very first 'potty'

Look what I did ... I'm a big girl now, I can use the potty.

The other night I was getting ready for my bath and running around naked, when I had a small accident. Mimi was here and she asked me if I wanted to sit on the potty. I thought it sounded like fun so I said yes. Daddy brought it out and I sat on it and look what I did ... !!!

Since then I've used it several more times. I'll sit down and have a go at doing something and then I love to jump up and have a look to see what I've done. Then I'll sit back down and try and do some more. It's so exciting!!!

I had a bad day

20070901a Kat got OwiesI had a bad day on Friday. It started off really well. Mummy and I went to Music Group, and I got to play with the teddy, and the musical instruments, and the scarves, and the bubbles. It was fun. Then Mummy and I went to the park because it was such a nice day. We had a picnic in the park and had sandwiches and juice from the dairy.

Then Mummy said I could go and play on the playground. I climbed up the steps and crawled through the tunnel. Then I was going to go on the slide.

I'm not really sure what happened next. I think I tripped. All I know is that suddenly I was sliding down the slide really, really fast, on my tummy, and I could see the ground coming up towards me. It really, really hurt when I hit the ground. I landed on my face. Mummy picked me up and gave me lots of cuddles until I felt better. Then she cleaned me up like Nurse Nancy would. I had dirt in my mouth and cuts all over my nose and chin.

Mummy said I should have put my arms out in front of me, but it all happened so fast and I didn't know to do that. I will remember that next time. I hope there isn't a next time.

It hasn't put me off slides though. Once I got over the initial shock, and the pain went away, me and Mummy were off playing on the see saws and on the really big slide (Mummy went down with me this time though!).

After a while Mummy and I went home and I had a nap. I was really tired. Then that evening, Auntie Lou Lou and Caliope (aka Carpy) and Mimi all came over to visit. It was so exciting to see them. We had pizza for dinner. Yum yum. I wanted to play with Mimi's purse and with Lou Lou's purse, but they wouldn't let me. Boo. But I got to climb all over them and give them lots of cuddles and do some jumping. I like jumping.

After dinner, all the grown ups were doing boring things so I went into the kitchen to see what I could find to play with. I saw Aunty Lou Lou's cup of tea sitting on the bench. I like drinking Daddy's tea. I thought I would have some of Aunty Lou Lou's tea.

I reached up to grab her cup. I didn't know that it was so heavy, and I didn't know it would tip over. And I really didn't know that it was so hot. It was very, very hot. It tipped all over my head and left shoulder and it really, really hurt. It hurt even more than falling down the slide. It was also really scary because everyone kept putting these wet towels over my head and I didn't like that at all.

Mummy and Daddy took me to the hospital and I saw the Doctor and lots of Nurses. The nurse gave me some Pamol and some toys to play with, and I sat on the bed with Mummy and Daddy and looked at the books and played with the toys. Then the nurses came back and put a big bandage on my shoulder and around my tummy. But it didn't hurt.

So now I have a sore shoulder, and a sore ear, and a sore nose. But I haven't really noticed it too much because it's been so exciting having Auntie Lou Lou and Caliope here. But I am definitely going to be more careful from now on.

Bye Bye

Uncle Runkle and Auntie MardieBye Bye Uncle Runkle and Aintie Maidie and Poppa.

Yesterday we all went to the airport. I saw the planes. It was neat.

Poppa and Auntie Mardie and Uncle Richard all got on a plane with a kangaroo on it. Then they went away. Mummy said I won't see them for a long time. Mimi was crying. I was sad too. Mummy says they have gone to America but I don't know what that means. Mummy says I went to America once, but I don't remember.

This is a photo of Uncle Runkle and Auntie Mardie, taken up at the mountain. Which is when I started calling him Uncle Runkle instead of Uncle Richard. I had lots of fun eating the snow. That was my favourite part. Mummy and Auntie Mardie and I went down the mountain on a sled. It was fun and scary at the same time. It was a very long drive to get to the mountain and to get home again. I liked spending the time with Mimi and Auntie Mardie and Uncle Richard but I also got very tired and it was good to get home again.

Mid Year Xmas

Last weekend we celebrated what Mummy and Daddy called a "Mid Winter Christmas". I call it "present time". I got loads of really cool presents including lots of warm winter clothes and some great books. My new favourite book is Nurse Nancy.

The funny thing about some of the presents though, is that they seemed kinda familiar. Check out these photos and you'll see what I mean...












20070120aj Kat's first birthday party
Here I am on my birthday opening a present with Mummy. Some little farm animals from Aunty Tina. I never saw them again after this.

20070701c Opening Mid-Year Xmas Pressies
Then here I am again last week, opening what looks like the very same box. I wondered where those animals got to. I love playing with them now and leaving them all over the house for Mummy to find.

20070120ar Kat's first birthday party
Once again, this photo was taken on my birthday and shows me unwrapping an electric keyboard piano from my Mimi and Poppa.

20070701a Opening Mid-Year Xmas Pressies
Then here I am again six months later unwrapping the very same keyboard. I love playing music on it. There is a demo button that plays the same three songs over and over again. I LOVE IT. Mummy even learnt to play some of my favourite songs like Old McDonald.


I guess it doesn't matter if I've seen them before, because there's nothing quite so much fun as ripping paper and opening presents. It's almost as much fun to play with the paper as it is the present.

Love Ya ... Kat

My Middle Name is Mischief

I love to help my Mummy around the house. She says I'm such a big help. I'm very good at loading the laundry into the washing machine. And taking it out. And putting it back in. And taking it back out.

Here's a picture of me helping Mummy to do the baking. The fact that she was outside at the time hanging out laundry, and the fact that I got into the cupboard by myself is irrelevant. I wanted to make some bikkies...

20070509a Kat got into the baking cupboard

Here I am driving the truck when we went to Palmerston North the other weekend. It's a bit of a problem reaching the pedals though.

20070514a Helping Lou move house

Here I am mopping the floor. What a big helper. Of course this was after I tipped the cat's water bowl all over the floor.

20070525a Cleaning up my mess

And, lastly, here I am helping to put the clean litter into the rat cage. I think maybe more of it ended up on me than in the cage. LOL!

Merry Christmas

Hi all. Just wanted to say I really like this Christmas thing. Why don't I get presents every day???? I don't understand. Mummy says I have to wait until my birthday to get more presents. I really like ripping the paper. It is so exciting. Especially when everyone claps and cheers. What I don't understand is that normally they tell me off for ripping paper.

First I got to go see Father Christmas. He didn't say anything to me but I got my photo taken with him. I'm still not sure what he's all about but Mummy and Daddy insist I will like him.

20061217a Kathleen and Santa Claus

Then on Christmas Day I got up and before I could even have breakfast Mummy and Daddy gave me all these presents to open. Then we went to Mimi and Poppa's house and I opened even more presents. Then we went to Nana and Grandy's house for lunch and I ate some lamb and veges, and I ate lots and lots of jelly and ice cream! I was so tired by the time we went home that I fell asleep in the car.

20061225a Christmas morning 20061225d Kat and Daddy open presents 20061225f Kat and Daddy open presents 20061225g Kat and Mummy open presents 20061225h Kat and Richard open presents

I got given so much stuff. Mostly I got clothes. I got 8 tops, 4 pairs of pants, 1 pair of overalls, 1 pair of shoes and 1 swimsuit. Also I got an Alphabet Pal, a Maisy DVD, a book about Kittens, a bucket and spade, and a big swing from Mimi that Daddy can hang up either inside or outside for me. I find it a bit scary right now though.

Here's a photo of me with all my presents.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY.
