Meet Bernie


This is Bernie. He has been living with us for two weeks now. You see it was our turn to take home the Prep School Mascot and journal his experiences with us. Most people get him for one night. It just happened to be we got him the day school broke for holidays.........and as my daughter returns to school tomorrow I am sitting here creating the next chapter in his little journal. It's fun.

    Charli looks such a sweetie there. She didn't take him for a swim did she?

  4. Bernie has a better life than I do. It just doesn't seem fair but he is cute and in touch with his feminine side. Do good looks open more doors? x

  14. Bernie is so cute Simone! My niece got to take home Fred the Frog the other weekend. She was so excited and the things she came up with for Fred to do were wonderful to see.

    Looks like Bernie had a great time on school holidays at the beach. A typical Aussie holiday.

  15. Bernie is so cute! and so clean...we had Max the dog, and he had so many adventures throughout the year, he was a little dirty by the end...he had many happy memories in his journal though :)

  16. I have a HUGE smile on my face not only because Bernie is completely adorable but because he's wearing the uniform of the fabulous school I used to teach at! How sweet, I gave a little squeal.
