bad bad doggies....


Evelyn with Miss Sunny...Sunny looks so sweet and innocent...


Duke....our old man dog.


And Suri, four years old.

Why are they so bad, you might ask? Well...they got into lots of things last night. They left behind evidence of their big pig-out party...they ate an 8 pack of hamburger buns that I bought yesterday to have burgers/sloppy Joes tonight. They ate two 10 packs of those big soft cookies. They ate a six pack of fresh baked blueberry muffins. They finished off the huge package of pizzelle, there were at least forty cookies in two plastic packages inside of the plastic container...they knocked down the girls' Halloween candy, and ate ALL the Skittles (thankfully my kids don't leave chocolate around for too long). There were wrappers, packages, and cookie crumbs all over the floors.

I asked them who did it, and they just wagged. It's a good thing they are cute. So much for Suri's diet. She eats special low calorie dog food.

I painted my laundry room door. I do not like it. I painted the old pine trim with white enamel, like the window trim. It's fun to do little projects like that, but I don't like how it turned out, but maybe because it's just so different...


Have I mentioned that I am going away for the weekend...without any of my kids? Yes I am. I am going for an Active Christianity workshop in Connecticut. (if you want to read some excellent articles, go to Active Christianity.com). I am going with a few of my nieces, and some friends. I feel like it's out of my comfort zone, but I love to write, and even more, I love anything that will help others deal with life's situations. God is good. He never ever gives us more than we can bear.

So my sister has to have surgery soon, it's still getting sorted out. She has decisions to make, and treatment plans to choose, but honestly, she's taking it all quite well. Our mother was a breast cancer survivor (she lived for 25 years after having a double mastectomy, cancer in her lymph-nodes too) (she also survived a heart attack, triple bypass surgery, and lived for 9 years on kidney dialysis, three days a week). But my sister...she's facing a long road. She has seven daughters, five are married and one is engaged and getting married in May. She has 10 going on 11 grandchildren. So not beating this thing is not an option! We need her! Keep her in your prayers, please!

It's sunny and 18 degrees (-7.7), brrr. The sun is shining on the snow...
