Etta's Visit PART ONE

Well Etta the Meerkat has officially arrived in Fremont, NH!

We are very excited about her visit...I'm posting a bit now and I'll post more when we get back on Sunday. We are headed to NJ for Thanksgiving so Etta will be at our BIG family Thanksgiving at a real dairy farm! We can't wait to show her around.

So when she arrived my daughter Tasha just fell in LOVE! They have been attached at the hip since. I brought Etta in to meet Tasha when she woke up from her nap...see photos to see her reaction. Etta was very excited to see there were MANY new friends in Tasha's big girl bed. She got to meet, Brown Bear, Mr. Snuggle Pants (the panda), Mrs. Snuggle Pants (other panda), Kitty, Giraffe, Mr. Maine Bear, and most importantly Puppy! They all seemed to get along great. Mr. Snuggles seemed to really take to Etta and I think Mrs. Snuggles got a bit upset!

Tasha then showed Etta the map on her wall. She showed Etta how far she had come to visit us. Tasha knows all about long travels since she was born in China. Etta was impressed that Tasha knew her map so well.

The rest of the night was spent playing games and meeting our kitties.

Etta was a bit home sick but Tasha made sure to give her lots of hugs and comfort her if she was sad. Today Etta is spending the day at work with me. So I can teach her all about Graphic Design!

Stay tuned for more this weekend. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. So glad Etta arrived safe and sound. It looks like she and Tasha are having fun together. Will this be Tasha's first Thanksgiving too? How great- I can't wait to see photos of the big Thanksgiving celebration. Hope Etta doesn't eat too much! Have a lovely holiday!

  2. How cute! Looks like Etta is having a good time with your family. Make sure Etta gets plenty of Pumpkin Pie!

  3. Lynn this will be Tasha's first big Farm thanksgiving the past 2 years we have spent with my family. So this should be fun!

    We will be sure to have Etta sample all of the yummy food. Even Aunt Della's famous chocolate cake which is to die for!!

    Happy Holiday's!

  4. I am really looking forward to learning all about Etta's thanksgiving, and I am very impressed with seeing how Tasha understands about maps. As Etteam knows, I got quite confused trying to sort out the meerkat itinerary - maybe I should have asked Tasha!

  5. LOL Nifty she just got that map a few weeks ago and constantly asks us "what's this place called?" "What is this one?" she already knows most of the continents! Amazing!

    I would have had to use the map to figure it all out! You did a great job! I'll have Tasha give you a call next time you need directions.


  6. What wonderful photos, your daughter is adorable, and she seems to have really hit it off with Etta, maybe there will be a merekat in her future?

    Can't wait to here about Etta meeting the cows.

    Happy Thanksgiving
