Baby love

A new friend

Lookin' good

Tough job, but somebody's got to do it

It will take me a while to chew through this

A good luck charm

But I don't want to share

These flowers are making me sneeze

Yes, I know I'm not allowed up here

Swimming anyone?

I'd like a treat please

Baby it's cold outside

Yum! Yum!

How long do I have to balance this thing?

I just want to go to sleep

I hope it's not junk mail again

I'm trying to look fierce

I love my woobie
