It has struck me that I’ve been remiss in sharing one member of our family’s Christmas!
For those who haven’t met her, Miss Cocoa Bean is a valued member of our family, she’s loving and loyal and I cannot believe that I’ve forgotten to include her in my articles here recently!
We added Cocoa into our family in the Spring of 2009
To say I fell in love immediately would be the understatement of the year.
She’s been involved in every aspect of our family life, most of our cherished memories include her.
1st day of school wouldn’t have been the same without Cocoa.
When we decided to breed Miss Cocoa Bean I don’t think we realized just how much joy this would bring us!
She was an amazing mother.
My heart goes squishy when I remember those amazing 8 weeks.
Each Christmas she brings us amusement with her reaction to the gifts Santa brings her.
Sometimes we even manage to snap a good photo of her when she slows down
More often Cocoa is too busy playing with all of her presents, Santa loves to spoil her!
And so Miss Cocoa Bean, thank you for sharing all of our memories with us, please don’t eat anymore food off of the counters in 2012!
and stop looking at me like that!
