Puppy dog kisses and Burglary

I am officially grossed out by my sweet little bundle of puppy!! Word of warning to anyone whom may be greeted by Quade with a wet never, ever, ever know where that cute little face has been or what it's eaten.

YUP YOU GUESS IT...QUADE IS A TURD BURGLER!!!! Not only has he been trying to get the Kitty Crunchies but I actually busted him feasting on Poopsicles in the back yard....BLECHHH!!

You know I wouldn't mind Quade cleaning up after himself if it was like these two examples:

Off to brush someone's teeth, give them a bath and basically just sanitize their furry body then out in the snow to find the remaining poopsicles! Ta Ta for now.

Snow pictures

I've been playing around a bit more with lighting, black and white and flash with all the snow fall. Some of the pictures are good, others not so good, lol.

I hope this stays for Christmas and we don't get any rain to ruin it!

7 Days and Counting!!


Christmas Spirit has finally hit here. I'm not sure if it's because the stress of getting the parcel off to Vernon is gone or if it's the feet of snow that we have but all I can say is it's about darn time, lol.

Here's some pictures that we took today of the snow, xmas decoration, Cleo and Quade:

When Hal and I bought the house I insisted on having a self cleaning oven with the flat top cook stove, there was no way I was ever going to clean burners and an oven again.


I'm off to finish cleaning before I self clean, lol.

What Reindeer am I?

You Are Blitzen
Always in good spirits, you're the reindeer who loves to party down with Santa.
Why You're Naughty: You're always blitzed on Christmas Eve, while flying!
Why You're Nice: You mix up a mean eggnog martini.

Obviously they weren't at the Luau or they'd know I can't make mixed drinks.....oh, that was just blender drinks, lol.
These were fun Shari!
