These first photos are from Saturday afternoon, when we had gotten a little bit of snow, but it wasn't actively snowing.
|Mom says she has 87 million versions of this photo. I have no idea what she's talking about. As usual.|
|Life is GOOD!|
As we got more snow on and off, we got to spend more time playing frisbee.
|"Are we sharing, or just pausing in tug-of-war?" "Let's go with sharing. It sounds better!" "Roger that!"|
Mom also spent a lot of time getting close-ups of us. She seems to be a big fan of these photos, and occasionally we will play along...
Biggify those for maximum oooohing and aaahing! Heehee!
After pausing for photo shoots, we got more frisbee time in.
|Abby the Action Dog in action!|
After a great weekend of walkies in snow, and funballs frisbee times, Mom decided it was time to celebrate Abby's birthday, even though Abby did not miraculously become a well-behaved, mature dog when she turned 3 years old on December 12th. I was all for celebrating Abby's birthday because a) I always get cake, and b) I don't have to wear the birthday hat. (Seriously, The Things We Do to Amuse Mom...)
|Are you happy now? Good. Get this thing off me so I can have some cake.|
I mentioned cake, right? Mom actually makes bone-shaped muffins (yes, she has a special muffin pan just for us - why wouldn't she?!?), but they are Most Tasty. A carrot-peanut butter-honey concoction with cream cheese and peanut butter 'frosting'. They seriously rock.
|At least Mom had a real candle for Abby this year - last year Mom had to write '2' on a card and stick it on another candle!|
Cake! (With our best 'baby-bird' impressions.)
|The birthday girl|
|Nom, nom nom!|
And for those of you who are having snow-envy, I think we've got a window of clear-ish weather to get Air Fiona out to pick you up!
