Christmas Party

Tonight was the Christmas party with our PC family.  We had a great time!


Earlier I posted a picture of the Christmas tree that I had made with Petey decorations, blue ribbons and pipe cleaner candy canes.  And of course blue lights!!  Each month for our meetings I try and take new Petey adventures.  He seems to be loved by all!!

I have learned a lot about Petey in the past 2 years.

He is a tough nut to crack!!

Coming home from the party Ray gave me a new scene idea to do for Petey.

Here are a few hints...see if you can guess what it will be!
