Christmas is almost upon us, and at this time of year, we feel it's a time to tell you how much we love and appreciate all of you for being our friends. We know a lot of people say that online friends aren't really friends, but they're wrong. You guys are just as important to us as everybody else we know. We realize there's a real person/bird on the other side of that computer screen that chose to follow us and read this blog, and we are so happy to share our lives with you.
Social media is great because it helps us to connect with people we wouldn't have met otherwise. It really expands your horizons. This really hit home when Zack hurt his foot a few weeks ago. You guys really pulled together and supported us so much. Mommy and daddy were so thankful for your care, concern, and comments. It meant a lot to them and to us.
We are very fortunate not only to have good parents, good families, and good homes, but to have you as friends as well. Thank you so much. All of you are awesome! We have so much fun here and on Twitter chattering with you. There have been a lot of good times and good conversations, and I know we're going to keep the fun rolling through the new year and beyond!
We also like to bow our heads in memory of a dear friend that passed away recently, Kira Conure. Kira was a sweetie pie that brightened our days and our lives and she will be missed. We love you, Kira! We miss you a lot, but we know you aren't sick or hurting anymore, and we know you are in a place of joy and peace that we can only imagine. You enriched our lives so much. As mommy says to those that pass on, see you on the other side our dear friend. And to Kira's mommy, know that we are thinking about you and care. We aren't mommy's first birds. She had birds before when she was younger and they died, so she knows exactly how Kira's mommy feels.
Merry Christmas to all of you, feathered, furred, and human! We hope you have a wonderful Christmas full of joy and that your new year is filled with prosperity and happiness.
Oliver, Zack and Chloe (signed in the order that we appear above)
