A very Okapi Christmas

Okapi enjoyed his trip to San Diego. We have pictures to prove it:



Bet you didn’t know that Okapi LOVE eggnog. Especially if it’s made with love by Jack and Tamara.

Okapi asked if he could help make breakfast, but he was told that the biggest help would be to set the table. IMG_0681

Okapi thoroughly enjoyed the traditional Swedish tea ring.


He was so pleased that Grandma came over to enjoy Christmas morning.

Wow what generous and thoughtful gifts. He wonders WHAT COULD BE IN THOSE CLEVER BAGS!!! He get’s a bit excited sometimes.

Okapi remembered the meaning of Christmas and honored the Christ child. He loves nativities.

He was quite impressed by the Christmas tree.

Okapi enjoyed playing Christmas songs. He wishes that he had better dexterity.


Okapi and I love the jean quilt!    IMG_0710 IMG_0711

He blends right in with the Nativity. LOL

I have to tell you, my cousin Keith always used to say he wanted to be an Okapi when he grew up. I didn't ever believe him that Okapis were real animals. Then I saw one at the SanDiego zoo once. So I guess Keith was right.

This post had too many pictures for my phone to handle and blogs don't make it through the military filter so I'll have to finish looking at it later, but I love the okapi story.

This Okapi thing has a story behind it - I'm sure. Love it in the pics though.

Wow, okapi is sneaky - I didn't see him much during the holidays - maybe he's like Mina. Glad he could come and join in the festivities.

Okapi are elusive. In fact, Europeans didn't know of their existence until 1901.

FYI - The Phoenix Zoo does not have Okapi on display, which was a bit disapointing to a certain zoo and Okapi lover who happened to be in Phoenix last month.
