Fletchy is definitely a Daddy’s boy. He counts the minutes until his Dad gets home. This day he climbed into the laptop bag as if he wants to go to work too. Years ago I took Tippy and Bella both to work with me for Bring Your Daughter To Work Day. They stayed under my desk most of the day, and coworkers came by to meet them and pet them. Everyone commented how they were so surprised that they stayed quiet all day. That was pure Bella. She was so well behaved and she taught Tippy to be the same. Fletch has an immeasurably big heart, but he likes to break out into glass-shattering loud songs at any random moment. Based on that he won’t be able to go to work with his Dad any time soon.
The kids like their Dad’s fuzzy blanket, especially in weather like what we had Thanksgiving weekend. Here they are all sharing with their Daddy in order to warm up after a quick walk outside.
Fletchy tucks his ears back rather frequently. Who knows why he does it. He looks like an old advertisement for Quizno’s Subs where this little head of a creature goes floating across the screen singing about all the ingredients on their subs. Does anyone else remember that strange commercial?
Sweet Kitty knows her siblings will leave her alone so she is confident enough to lounge around with her belly up.
Perhaps the bed is most comfortable when it has an extra layer of padding in the form of toys. The kids flock to the stack of beds on vacuum days when we toss all their toys in there. Bates won the race to the beds this day.
The kids like to hang out nearby if I stop to read in the sunroom. This is my favorite room in the house. The house feels most like a treehouse from here and you are still connected to the other rooms because it is so open.
Cali has a new condo that gives her one more place to check out the outdoors. The other two face the front yard but this one gives her a better view of the deck and back yard. The neighbor’s cat likes to come onto the back porch from time to time. Once I saw her come to the window and swat the glass in an attempt to get to Cali. Clearly she doesn’t know Cali is tough as nails. Cali did not flinch. She had typical don’t-bother-me composure. If these dogs don’t bug her, an outside cat certainly can’t do it.
These two peas in a pod are waiting for their buddy to join them on the porch so everyone can go inside and get breakfast. Polly is quite food motivated. Bates is too, but he is very protective and has his routine in the yard of checking out things as far as he can see in all directions. No squirrels or cats live nearby that don’t already know about him.
Hello from the tiny little lady that’s kindof a big deal around here. 🙂
It is getting noticeably cooler here so imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon these super cute bomber hats for the kids! They are at the dollar spot in the front of Target and they have hot pink too, but no tiny hot pink ones for Polly at my local one. I may keep looking at the other locations around here to try to find one. They also have dog sweaters and coats for $3 but we have plenty of those already. We don’t regularly get dreadfully cold weather, but occasionally we get that wet sleety snow. When the kids come in from that, it’s as if they were drizzled with ice water. And of course they want to cuddle up on the couch once they are inside, so these should help keep them dry and toasty, which helps us to be dry and toasty too. It’s a win for everyone and well, look at those cute faces! That’s worth it right there.
