Screen Shot 2015-01-31 at 1.57.29 PM

We like to do a silly dog Christmas card each year. Let me tell you, this isn’t easy to do. We don’t have “easy” dogs who are obedient. They don’t cooperate at all, in fact. To top last year’s card, we wanted to add in Daisy our new cat. But, since we wanted Daisy to … [Read more…]

A Long Pause


To my three regular readers: I’m on a break. In case you have noticed I haven’t been posting, I would like you to know it’s a purposeful pause. I’m pausing to collect my thoughts.

We’ve been snowed in … with Annie. Annie loves the snow. February 2011:   December 2013: Annie definitely makes things a little more interesting — even when you’re stuck inside for days on end!

Happy Thanksgiving … a Little Late

We had little to no internet access during Thanksgiving week, so I’m a little late with my greeting. We had a quiet week at the cabin where we experienced some very cold temperatures and a little ice. I buried my nose in a book for a couple of days and tried to relax.  

Wash Out

Nathan and Annie went early to the cabin to have lots of fun before I joined them for my Fall break. Just to be perfectly clear — Annie is our dog. She’s not our child. Though, my estimation is that triplets could not be any more demanding than this one little dog. But that’s another … [Read more…]
