Stuffies for Pawrents

Abby Lab here -

Unless you've been totally off the interwebs or on a deserted island you've probably heard of the Hatchimals Toy crazy.  Hathimals are cute stuffed toys within an egg that will hatch if you play with them and then can be taught tricks.

They're selling out all over.

Mom and Dad were both in a bad mood when the day was done, Mom because of a possible government shutdown, which meant a furlough before Christmas, and Dad, because he took a vacation day to get some things done around the house and his work was calling him every 30 minutes so nothing got done.

So, since they were all sad face, I made them a DIY Hatchimal.


  1. We think your pawrents are very creative....BOL!

  2. BOL! I guess we live on a deserted island 'cause my mom and I have never heard of Hatchimals!

  3. A very wise choice, Abby. Mom is so happy that none of the grands have even mentioned Hatchimals. She had way too much fun years ago with Cabbage Patch babies, Tickle Me Elmo, Star Wars musts, and the list goes on and on. Now maybe we would like a hatchimal if it would bring us another Sibe:)

  4. Now that is a creative idea,
    I think I'll give my dad one for Christmas.

  5. Maybe ghostwriter should drink a few of those when she gets home from work!
