Dance of the Sugar Plum Ferrets

The children were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

They make it look so easy, Candice and Robert B.


  1. *giggle*

    Well-DONE, whoever realized the ferrets/ fairies similarity. That never occurred to
    MY scrambled brain ….. )

  2. Further evidence that ferrets come shipped with the lable, “*bones not included.”

  3. *golf clap*

  4. Here I am thinking about my fitness goals for the coming year, one of them being regaining hamstring flexibility so I can ‘kiss the toe’ in forward bend. These guys can kiss the toe in a back bend, in their sleep, without any practice! Life is so unfair.

  5. I know a 96-year-old woman who’s so flexible she can lie flat on her back, and without even lifting her head, can lift her legs up and over and put her feet on the floor behind her head.

    I watched her do this and my jaw dropped open and she said, “I’ve been doing yoga every day for 82 years. It’s not that impressive.”

  6. They actually come shipped in donut shape. You have to unpack them and let them relax for 5-6 hours before you actually use them, like tempurpedic mattresses.

  7. What a couple of silly leetle sleppy heads!

  8. Put your hands (and feets) in de air!!

    Yay for The Birdcage references! :)

  10. But I can’t dance when he’s chewing gum!

  11. Chewing gum helps me think.
    Sweetie, you’re wasting your gum!

  12. I agree, I love The Birdcage :)

  13. Ditto! :-) I love that part of the movie. Okay, I love the entire thing! :-)

  14. Okay, Sugarplum Ferrets is the name of my next imaginary prog band.

  15. Excellent.

  16. Oooh, cute ferrets…they are so bendy! Love that the gray one is so color-coordinated with his/her bed.

  17. huh, didn’t know synchronized ferreting was a thing. learn somethin’ new every day

  18. News to me too….and I would have missed the lesson if not for you. Thanks *walking away feeling smarter*

  19. And the little plush faux critter can’t sleep for trying so hard to be a fairet. Ehn!

  21. Because the holiday season is so rich in holiday-related nonsense, here is SPIKE JONES’s NUTCRACKER! :D

  22. Sugar – plum ferrets, indeed!

  23. Those two sugarplum won’t cause problems for my diabetes. pass the over here!!!.

  24. Lof that song!

  25. Synchronized sleeping. I could do that at the olympics.

  26. This just proves I am not lying when I say I play ‘Stop kicking yourself in the head’ with my ferrets!

  27. Looks almost like ballet.
