Charlie Visits Cincinnati

Meredith and I have had a very busy week! Along with finishing up making toys for all my friends for Christmas I went my first flight and made it all the way to Cincinnati! I even got to try the famous Skyline Chili! Now I know why people talk about it so much even if they aren't from Cincinnati. I also now know what cheese is and it is DELICIOUS!! I think it's my new favorite food next to sugar of course.

I can''t believe it's already Christmas Eve and Santa comes TONIGHT!!!! Only have to stay out of trouble a few more hours <|:) Just kidding I know Santa is already working on his list for next year. I need to go finished wrapping presents but I'll talk to everyone soon!


Charlie's First Christmas Party

Today Meredith is bringing me as her date to the Charlesgate Christmas party! Meredith said she has a lot of work to get finished before we go so I'm just hanging around the office with her and her friends. 

 

For the occasion I'm wearing my special Christmas sweater that Bunny sent me! I can't wait to meet her next week! She has sent me so many amazing presents... I wonder if Bunny is actually Santa?!  Guess we will find out soon! <|:-O 

Charlie Discovers Sugar

Today Meredith and I are making Christmas cookies to share with everyone at the office at Charlesgate! I didn't realize how many ingredients and steps went into making cookies! I also realized how much I love sugar! And cookies have lots of sugar so I have a feeling I'm going to like those too. Meredith said she isn't exactly a baker so will be sticking to her day job but I can't imagine anything could taste icky that has sprinkles on it. Looks like it's time to decorate so I've got to scram!


Where is Charlie?

This morning Meredith and I stopped by Acorn Street on our way to the office. This is the most photographed street in the United States! As you can see in my picture the narrow street is paved with  cobblestone and lined with gas lamps. 

 

Acorn Street located just steps away from Louisburg Square which is considered by many the most prestigious address in Beacon Hill. I wanted to try and say 'hi' to John Kerry but Meredith said I should probably stay away from the secret service dogs. 

It's starting to feel more like the North Pole here! I wonder if we are going to see some snow soon?? Thank goodness I have my new vest my friend Bunny sent me to keep me warm! <|:)
