IT'S A DOGS LIFE

This is "Gracie" the wonder dog waiting for a call to duty.  Occasionally she wakes long enough to eat, steal socks, and chase Sofie. 
These are the best action shots I could get.


Why I love New England

When it is cold and snowing on the outside and I'm warm and cuddly on the inside

That is the best. 

And when mom is waiting for me on the inside

That is even better.

IT'S A GIRL!

(guest posting by Becky who has been officially replaced as youngest girl in the family line-up)

 Meet the proud Mother
and her NEW daughter, Gracie.
She's a 9 weeks old Corgi.


She's a feisty, holds her own, sheep herding kind of gal.

Congratulations Mom!
She's CUTE!!!

Any volunteers to bring dinner to this brand new mother?  She'll need all the help she can get because she'll be busy chasing, training, playing, feeding and nurturing her furry new sidekick.

I think THIS chick is cuter than the chickens.

Love, Dad

A couple of things we did on July 4th - 2009

"My Dad said that this was the best seat for the fireworks show that would happen at dark"

Now follows a most handsome 14 year old, born on the fourth of July 1995 - Isn't he cute?

And now Hunter is taking the "traditional" bite out of the apple pie and icecream "cake"

that he requested him mom bake him.
What would the fourth be without a patriotic bunt cake???


Here is Alana reading to Gabe about Nascar racing



And now, the actual nascar races - held in Belmont at the temple home


Yes, she smoked him


Coming down the backstretch after a couple of pit stops

IT'S A PHOTO FINISH!!

There were more pics but I still don't know how to arrange them without losing some of them. Sorry. My blogging is like my singing. Off key, out of style, but very enthusiastic.
