Photos, Day 7

Woo-hoo! We've made it through an entire week of daily pictures!

Let's see. What have we learned? 1) My sister is a bully, 2) my sister is WAY bigger than I am (and has thus earned her the nickname Lard Butt), 3) my sister has really strong legs that power that large bottom of hers, 4) while I'm quicker and wiley-er than her, there are just some laws of physics that cannot be denied, and 5) I may be smaller, but I'm still the older sister. Neener, neener.

This next picture is what is classically referred to as 'ass-over-tea kettle'. You know those laws of physics I mentioned earlier? Yeah. Um. I'm not super happy with Isaac Newton at the moment.

Happy Sunday!

Pictures, Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of photos. Dad is still a little under the weather, so Mom and Dad didn't go skiing today. Which meant that Mom had ALL DAY to take pictures of us. She took something like 350 pictures. Seriously. Of course, there were a lot of out-of-focus pictures, and pictures where you've got just a leg, or a split-second after the interesting stuff happened, or just boring pictures. But Mom's of the belief that with digital photography, it's always better to get more, and delete often. But, she still ends up with a zillion pictures of us that she 'likes'. Of course. If I'm in it, how could you NOT like it? Yuh. Totally.

Anyway, Abby sort of got on my nerves today. When Mom was playing on the computer (she calls it 'writing' - I call it tapping away on the keyboard), Abby kept taking MY spot by Mom. And then when Dad would give me scratchies, Abby would nudge her way in. And then she was on and on with her stuffie ball. Oy. The girl was driving me crazy. So we had some serious bitey-face (bitey-butt, bitey-leg, bitey-ear, etc.) sessions today. Which isn't all bad.

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering, yes, we are made out of a super-high tech rubber-plastic composite. I think it's called Silly Putty. Heehee.

But as always, we had fun, and end the day snuggled up next to each other. It's nice to have a sister. *gasp* Did I just say that??? Wow. I have No Idea where that came from! *grin*

Photos, Day 5

Well. Mom certainly made today's photo edition a challenge for herself; we were at daycare from about 10:30 to 3:30 (Dad's got a bit of a cold, and Mom thought that Abby jumping on him all day wouldn't help him rest, so we went to daycare - which is fine by us - it's always good fun!) and so all of Mom's pictures were taken early in the morning, or late in the afternoon, after the sun had gone down past our hillside. Apparently it's tough to get 'good' bitey-face action shots in low-light. Or maybe Mom isn't using the right setting on the camera. Or something.

So, Mom wasn't as happy with her selection of photos from today as she has been in some of the past days, but since she's committed to posting a few photos each day, here ya go. These pictures are presented in chronological order, BTW. Abby and I tend to go from tug-o-war to bitey-face to standing around in a random sort of way; Mom just takes the pictures.

But Brutus, if you want frisbee shots here you go. ;-)
