I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

Seriously!  What fun! A miniature version; he could play in my little waterfall.  I smile (and sometimes laugh) everytime I hear that song on the radio!  AND that was the first Christmas song I heard on the radio this year. 

Well, if I'm to have one, I'll have to buy it for myself; Edgar is not going to cooporate, infact I got a lecture on the damage a full-grown hippo could cause and the liabilities (yes,he actually said 'liabilities'!!!)  I really think that he thought I was serious...must be because I want to bring home every injured bunny that I read about, the the Great Dane that was abused and weighed only 57 pounds (he's found a home, however). 

I just wanted the little guy to go running with me and protect me from coyotes....

They are very very cute!
There was a commercial here a few years ago and it was little tiny pygmy hippos - they could fit in a mouse hole!

So cute, a little hippo!

I am glad you entered my blog giveaway. Also, you HAVE to let me know if you get that Kate Spade Barbie!!

I have a photograph of one that I might blow up & hang above my Pottery Barn Desk. It is a photo that I took at the Mall of America. They have a very awesome History of Barbie display right now with every Barbie & every Barbie outfit imaginable! So I took a couple of pictures of the Kate Spade Barbie.

Merry Christmas!
