The Animal Welfare League had a fundraiser last weekend to get your pet's picture taken with a professional pet photographer. Dex was pretty good for it, though I think he wasn't very happy with me about the day in general. He had a bath (he hates getting wet), had his nails trimmed and ground down, plus he didn't get to sit with me for the picture! Poor puppy fell asleep in the car on the way home and that never happens!

It has been awhile since I've updated. Things have been crazy around here,with getting ready for winter around the house and yard and just all the other things that come up. We had one big day of raking leaves, Pete loved the leaf sucking truck when it came to get our leaves. My mom had surgery so we've spent some time helping her out around the house as well. I was in charge of Thanksgiving this year and helped mom get ready for Christmas as well as putting up our own stuff. We also helped out with the church Nativity play as well this year. I made a bunch of hats for it as well as being in a trumpet group and Phil played guitar and harmonica. Pete has had lots of time to play in the last couple of weeks and we've taken advantage of that time with some pictures of his favorite things over that time.
|We borrowed mom and dad's lawn mower to help with our leaves and had to use a trailer to get it over to our place. |
Pete thought it was perfect to park his car on as well.
Blocks! The tower wasn't standing much longer after this picture.

Sounds interesting doesn't it? Well that is just our daily life around here! I found Phil this great Vader hoodie the day after Halloween on clearance and had to buy it, we're talking under $10. It zips up all the way and transforms the hood into his helmet. Part of Pete's bedtime routine is to read a really brief bit of the scriptures, Phil was wearing it with the hood down, until Pete came and zipped him up. So Vader was reading the Book of Mormon to the family that night. Really funny and pretty fun too, especially since it was a war and destruction section we were reading.

I bought a new ipod awhile ago now. I'm in love, won't lie. I told myself I wasn't going to let Pete use mine, but he could use my old one, hahaha! Lies! Well he has learned that there is a camera on it, how to use and has gotten pretty good at taking the pictures. I'm pretty impressed by some of them, within 3 minutes the other day he took over 60 pictures with it. Most of them were of his tractors and semi truck. But plenty were of the rocking chair and me coming to take back my ipod.
Here is one of his masterpieces.
Hi, Grandma White! Pete has decided my mom is grandma white, can you figure out why?

This year we were Star Trek for Halloween. I still haven't gotten the family pictures of the costumes off the camera and probably won't for awhile. So you get these random ones instead. Sorry the joy of a super busy month and a new ipod with a camera.

Awhile ago, like a loooooong time ago, we received an anonymous donation to our fun funds via Ruby Tuesday and Zoyo (frozen yogurt) from a smiley face labeled Joy...Yes I'm pretty darn sure I know who you are and if I attempt to repay you again and it isn't accepted, again, then it will be donated to PETA or the Democratic National Committee instead. So here is my thanks though for the great dinner and dessert with a fun picture of Pete enjoying the frozen yogurt.
