The monkey jumping with the baby is my favorite. I am going to make some of those penguins one of these days. I think they are adorable.

Fabulous photos. I think my favorite is the duck because it doesn't even look real. Amazing.

Love the polar bears (and other animals too). I've only seen real polar bears once in Roger Williams Park Zoo in Rhode Island and they were fabulous. Those penguin treats are soooooo adorable. I must make them sometime. Just need to plan a party (can't do that without family around or friends). That's what I get for moving away to the country. LOL Have a great new week.

Hello Jan,
Very nice pictures of all animals. So special and great to see them all.
The creations of the pinguins are so nice. Looks very nice as a festive bite. A great idea.

Kind regards,
Marco

Love your just because post :) Great trip around the world with all the pictures, I have always wanted a English springer spaniel, they are too cute!

Lisa said...

How fiddly do those penguins look to make, cute though.
But not as cute as the polar bear cub.
And Twiglet's eyes just make you melt!
