Monsieur Steve Coallier, a master!

Bonjour mes amis! It's Shirley here, in for Monsieur Olivet, who has been very, very busy enjoying discovering his new home here in California! My brilliant and dear friend Lourie, whom I have known since junior high school, married a lovely gentleman named Steve two years ago (Happy Anniversary, you two lovebirds!), and it turns out that Steve secretly created a most wondrous thing....

...introducing the amazing, stupendous, mind-boggling, super-duper awesome 3-D Monsieur Olivet!!!

I first introduced him to the backyard..he had a nice look at the pool.
Perhaps he shall shed his winter clothes and take a dip? 
Feeling a bit overwhelmed with his new surroundings, Monsieur quickly sped off to find a shady spot. He felt a little more comfortable amongst the leaves and blades of grass.
But, it was time to come in and discover the inhabitants of his new home...
"hmmm....who lives here?"
Don't worry, Monsieur, this is our little fish named Rock's house. Rock's tank is going under some cleaning at this time, so you get to enjoy this very familiar pineapple shaped home. I'm sure Monsieur is quite confused now. Well, off to discover something I know Monsieur will simply love...

"mon Dieu!"

Sierra's violin! That must be the largest violin you've ever seen, isn't it Monsieur? I hope we get to enjoy a little of your violin playing here now. I hear you are quite the master!

Off we go to visit Noëlle's room...and we want you to meet a dear friend, dear Paddington Bear! He's a favorite of ours.

Tellement confortable!    
As we visited the rooms, something had quite an eye on Monsieur..and to my surprise, Monsieur climbed right on up to check her out.
Zsófi was quite a good girl, though she sniifed Monsieur quite a lot. She ultimately gave him the seal of approval. Whew!

Monsieur was a little hungry after so much excitement, I decided to go get him some food. I thought that a hefty piece of Gouda and a little fruit would do him well.

But alas, it's getting late...and I wanted to introduce Monsieur to some of my favorite things. I hope he'll enjoy visiting here awhile, discovering the stories and friends who already embrace him as family.
Thank you so much Steve! Your remarkable talents and generosity have touched my heart and I am so very grateful. Words simply are not enough to thank you for bringing Monsieur Olivet to life! We welcome Monsieur with lots and lots of love, and we'll take very good care of him! Hugs to you and two are blessings in my life.  ~ xo Shirley
