It seems they have been hiding it all over for the last couple months or so - first in the brush pile (which, after 5 years, I decided to clean up this fall -meaning they had to quickly smuggle it off to another hiding spot), then upstairs, disguised under blankets.
This sunny Christmas morning Nessie finally got to come out and swim around the Christmas tree. Eventually in the spring she will have a new pond just for her.
She's got a beautiful face, complete with little ears, and detailed scaling, just like the real Nessie in Loch Ness, Scotland. Yes, I do believe, I do believe......
Even though Seri played Catzilla earlier this week, she backed down when faced with a real monster.
After a few contemplative moments, she decided it was best to make friends, possibly form an alliance, and then snuggle next to Nessie.
From our Celtic home to you and yours - we hope all your Christmas' were bright!
