Christmas 2011

It is always sad for me to put away the christmas decorations, so a few photos before they get packed away for another year.
Christmas Eve at midnight.

Well, it has been almost a year since i put anything on this blog so i guess it is time to get started:

I finally met the West Michigan director of the Parkinsons Organization, Joan, and she is such a sweetie. She wanted a photo of their new billboard that was just installed, and here it is, one during the day and one at night. So proud of Joan, she is an amazing woman. This is an organization that has my heart.

All legs


This little guy is ALL legs, and he follows me everywhere. I love the sound of his big gangly paws hitting the floor at a full gallop every time I leave the room...and he is right behind me. And when I sit on the floor he needs to be right on top of me if he sweet!

To get a jump on a creative winter.

"He's the puppy dog, the golden retriever-type. He loves to play; he loves being with people." Nancy Zaferes

What I forgot about puppies:
They really do like to chase their tails.
Their feet smell like popcorn.
They are REALLY busy...
They like to hide in small spaces.
Nothing compares to "puppy kisses"
and there is nothing like holding a sleeping puppy, I forgot they make little noises like a baby.

And here he is tackling his teddy bear, pouncing and shaking it with his teeth, growling at it, and then he tries to show his dominance the way only a little boy puppy can....

And here is one of those tiny spaces he likes...

A puppy plays with every pup he meets, but an old dog has few associates” ...Josh Billings

Oh, it does my heart good to see them bonding, they are getting along so great. Fun to watch them chasing each other around the yard. Dooney has been lonely, I think.

A Magical Christmas, New Years Eve

and a foggy one at that! No huge resolutions this year, (at least ones that are public), but I will say that I am doing very well so far on my private list! Well, it IS only day one...

and a foggy one at that!
