As Easy as Pooh, Part 2

Your friend is back!

He (she) , your friend -- the cartoon character, fictional literary figure or nursery rhyme star -- has come back over to show you all the rest of his presents, the stuff he got after he left your place. Now he needs your help with something. It's almost New Year's Day. Can you help your friend to come up with a fitting new year's resolution? It's okay if you didn't post on the first one, or if you want to pick a new friend....

On Christmas Day, In the Morning....

Just a short question about your Christmas morning.

What time did you get up?

I am guessing the answer will be more than one or two words (for example, getting up & staying up are two different things.... or maybe someone wouldn't let you GET up, but you were wide awake....)
So we'd love to hear your response! And then, go on back and enjoy your family.
May your Chistmas Day be blessed by the One whose birth we celebrate, and may He be honored in all we do today.

As Easy as Pooh

Hey, I loved your responses to that one! And such a successful challenge is pretty hard to follow, but I'll try.

Okay, step one: Think of a cartoon character, fictional literary figure, or nursery rhyme star. Tell us your choice (you might want to read ahead before you choose) .

Step two: The character you've chosen has just called you, and he/she is going to spend Christmas Day at your house! Planning for the day, and desiring to make him / her feel completely at home, you want to come up with :

a) Something yummy (entree, dessert, etc. ) your friend would love to sit at your table and share,

b) A fitting gift,

c) A great game to play while he /she is there.

Think hard.... I can't wait to hear your great ideas!

Your Match

A snowman.
A toothbrush.

An exercise bike.

A goldfish.
A calculator.

A combination lock.

A dictionary.

A volleyball.

An orchard.

A piano.

A zipper.

Fingernail clippers.

A picture frame.

A beluga whale.
A toaster.

Okay, ready? Here is your challenge. Pick 2 of the above. You may not pick the same pair someone else has picked, but you may choose one that's been chosen, just not the same combination.

Now, tell us what you have chosen, and then list 5-10 things that those two things have in common. If you are feeling particularly clever, you may also list one or two (or more!) important differences.

Okay, got your thinking cap on?
