Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion!

This is my story!

1. Two teapots? I know, I know. There is a method to my madness, you'll see! Well, it's the first Teapot Tuesday of 2011. Can't believe another year has gone by, that's alota teapots! I was thinking about what a new year always brings.

New Year's Resolutions ~ Bah! I always mess them up!
2010 A Year in Review ~ Who want's to do that? 2010 just wasn't that special with this economy!
Time Square ~ I can't stay up that late!
First Baby Born in 2011 ~ That's sounds kinda fun!

2. Our story takes place out West in a sleepy little western town called Cody, Wyoming. The town council has decided it would be fun to have a New Year's Day Parade and they can't do it without a Grand Marshall. Now there are two local citizens who come to mind and everyone is at odds as to which of the two should get the honorary position. It has become a real dilema and there is a member of the city council who wants to scrap the whole thing and just celebrate the first baby born in Cody this year! Well, the town council has figured out a way to kill to birds with one stone. Why do you think they were elected to Town Council? They are no dummies! A baby shower for Cody's 1st baby boy born in 2011 combined with a contest between two local citizens, the winner of which will be named the Grand Marshall of the New Years Day parade! Whoot!

3. Meet Bareback Brodie and Sidesaddle Jody, the pride and joy of Cody. Now Bareback Brodie (Picture the Wild Wild West Cowboy ~ Why do you think he's always carrying that saddle around, he only rides bareback!) and Sidesaddle Jody (Picture Lady Di in a cowboy hat) have both earned the town's respect but they are about to be tested. They have to plan a baby shower for a baby boy with a specific theme and make it memorable! Ranch-hand Stan has whispered a code word into their ears representing the theme they must follow. This code word rhymes with Minnie and starts with a W. Now, Sidesaddle Jody is tickled because the theme is centered around her favorite childhood character! Piece of cake, this baby shower! Think Winnie and blue for a baby boy! Bareback Brodie is tickled because the code word actually makes sense! How clever to use the word that describes the noise that a Cowboy's best friend makes when greeting him in the pasture! Piece of cake, this baby shower! Think male baby colts!

4. It's Winnie, Not Whinney! You're Such a Big Ninney! Ranch-hand Stan just found out Bareback Broadie was planning the baby shower in the barn with colts in birthday hats as special guests serving Oat-Meal cookies, sugar lumps and apples!!! Now, you need to have your head examined if you don't think Ranch-hand Stan is pulling for Bareback Brodie! He is his boss after all and will get extra pay if ends up The Grand Marshall! Even though I don't have any favoritism toward either candidate here (yeah, right!) how can I turn down Ranch-hand Stan's plea for help for Boss Bareback Brodie? It's an emergency of utmost importance and we have 24 hours with only two options! We can introduce Winnie the Pooh to Bareback Brodie to get his mind off the other kinda whinney by bringing anything Winnie to our teaparty. Or we can bring anything baby boy blue for a combination of the two! Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too! A little baby shoe or anything blue! A pot of honey, or a couple of bees. A cute little pacifier or some little blocks, please. Eeyore, Kanga, Piglet or Roo! Baby bibs, bottles, a blue onsie or two! Think Baby Boy Shower in 24 hours!

Challenge Translation: Bring Winnie the Pooh cards or bring baby cards in blue!

Now I know some of you will be inspired by the cute little rocking horse teapot and might be tempted to bring a Western (Wild Wild West) inspired blue baby boy card! Hey, who am I to say you can't, there are no rules here. But I can tell you one thing, you might end up coming in the back door of the barn. That's where I'll be, Bareback Brodie loves oatmeal cookies! Snort!

Teapot Tuesday Destination Station #127

This week's destination is Cody, Wyoming! Big surprise! We really are having a baby shower for a new baby boy, Teapot Tuesday style! Now I doubt that our recipient will be the mother of the Nation's first baby boy born in 2011, and I doubt she will even be the mother of the first baby boy born in Cody, Wyoming in 2011. But I can guarantee you, she will be the mother of the first baby boy born in 2011 in Cody, Wyoming to a fellow SCSer! Ah ha! Told ya there was a method to my madness!

The recipient is fellow SCSer Jamie (JamiePTS) who is probably having a her baby boy (Jon) as we speak! How do I know this? Because Pat Smethers, Jamie's mother-in-law is doing backflips! Some say I am obbsessed with the man (WWW man) but we know Pat is worse off than me! If she were in charge of the baby shower we would be doing a full fledged Cody, Wyoming Western shindig complete with cowboy boots, spurs and a blue baby boy cake with The Man on it! Bwahaha! I on the other hand, am simply helping a fellow cowboy out when in a Winnie the Pooh jam! You probably won't be surprised to hear that Jamie's baby room is being done in Winnie the Pooh decor! Wow, who'd a thunk such a coincidence would exist!

We are bringing in the new year on a happy note, with the celebration of a new life, and the anticipation of a wonderful new year for us all in 2011.

For more information and Jamie address please visit Post #167 of the The Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread, should you decide to send your challenge card to Jamie. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is strictly voluntary.

Here is my card.

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!
