Friday night, usually means “Guy’s Night”. Typically, Mom has to work those nights, so Dad and I usually just hang out at home. There’s plenty for us to do at home and we always manage to find a way to have a little fun.
Sometimes we hang out and listen to music. Dad’s got a bunch of these round, shiny things that play groovy tunes. I like to look at the pictures and try to eat them.
Word to the wise, they look better than they taste.
After that, sometimes we get inspired to go and make a little music of our own. Dad’s got this noisy thing in his “man cave” that I like to smack.
I don’t know who this crazy guy is, but I like him. I like his wild hair and cool pants.
After jammin’, it’s time for a break. I’ve found the best way to wind down is with a little MLB Network. I pulled my bat out tonight during “Hot Stove”, to work on my bunting technique.
This is about the time that I start to get tired. Really tired. Which means, it’s about time for our bottles. Can you figure out which one is mine?
Mine’s the one in the middle. Dad likes this stuff called beer. He says his favorites are from Belgium, whatever that means. I’ll be honest with you, the stuff is gross. I think his tastebuds might be broken or something. I don’t argue with him though. It just means more milk for me.
So Friday nights are pretty great, even when there aren’t any baseball games to watch. You should give it a try sometime. You won’t regret it.
I finally got Mom to put the pictures on the computer so I can tell you all about my Christmas. I had a great one! We started out at home. Santa stopped by our house and left me some great toys. Here’s a schoolbus he left for me and some other stuff that I had to unwrap to get into.
I found out later that I was supposed to put out cookies and milk for Santa and some snacks for his reindeer. I completely messed up on this one. Santa, if you’re reading, I’m sorry. I had no idea. I’m still kind of new to the whole Christmas thing, but I promise to make up for it next year.
I gave Mom and Dad their gifts. I did my own shopping this year. I got Mom a Colorado Rockies jersey and Dad a big book that’s all about the World Series.
From our house, we headed over to Gran C and Pappy’s place. Turns out, Santa had stopped there too! He filled my stocking with all kinds of fun things. Here’s Dad helping me get the stuff out.
I got a Grover!
I also got some music books, stuffed animals and a big truck that you can see behind me.
Pappy put me in the back of the truck and pushed me all over the house. Pappy got a big popcorn machine for this thing he calls the “man cave”. He spends a lot of time in his cave watching football and eating popcorn. I like this place because it’s big and I can push my truck and play with my blocks without getting into too much trouble. I think I’ll ask for a “man cave” next year for Christmas.
Anyway, Gran C made a yummy dinner and I pigged out. My friends Patty and Floyd recently moved out to Colorado. You might remember them from my trip to Baltimore. You can read about it here. They came over and shared with us. It was a great day.
In case you missed it, here’s my picture from last year:
And here’s my picture from this year:
I slept like a baby the whole way home.
