Happy Birthday Ruby!

Ruby turned 1 on Friday! It's hard to believe that another year has passed by! When my grandma's puppy was having puppies I was so excited...when she had three girls I was even more excited...when she said I could HAVE one...well you know, I was super excited...then when Ben kinda, sorta, a tiny bit, agreed I could keep one I was THRILLED! Now here we are a year later, and she really does fit right in. Ace has warmed up to the idea of having a girl around and for the most part they get along really well! Happy 1st Birthday Ruby girl...

Turkey Day!

Ben and I had a great Thanksgiving. This year Ben's family planned a huge family get together with the entire Hanowell side of the family. Despite the snow, we bundled up and headed out to Ferndale for our first turkey dinner. After a visit with his family and delicious turkey (and salmon, thanks Uncle Jim) we headed back out to Everson for dinner with my family. Like everyone else, we ate way too much and rolled home with very full bellies! I did think of taking pictures for the blog...however, BOTH camera batteries were dead. What are the chances? So I plugged them in while we ate our turkey and when we came home they were ready to go!

This snow was Ruby's first experience with the white fluffy stuff...and let me tell ya, she wasn't a fan! It was a chore to get her to go outside to do her business! Ace on the other hand LOVES the snow, and it's an even bigger chore to get him to come IN the house! He gets all the snow stuck in his fur and it turns into a TON of tiny snowballs all throughout his legs and tummy! This picture does not do a very good job showing what he looks like after being outside, Ben tried to get most of it off before carrying him inside...

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday Ben!

Happy last twenties Birthday Honey!

This year for our birthdays Ben and I decided no real "gift giving" it was a year of "romantic gestures"...sooo...for my birthday we went out for a nice dinner, and Ben was in charge of reservations etc. But we all know what's romantic for a girl might not be romantic for a my romantic gesture for Ben's birthday was his FAVORITE homemade New York Cheesecake all to himself...when he came home from the football game! I didn't manage to get a picture of the actual birthday boy, but I did get a quick picture of the cheesecake before he cut into it! We went out to dinner the next night and enjoyed an afternoon of spending time together in town...Hope you had a great day Benji...I love you!!!

Happy Halloween!

My favorite trick-or-treater of the night! (A close second was some little boy who told us we had a HUGE house with an AWESOME staircase!)

Landen wanted to be "Bruce the Shark" this year, and his Mommy delivered! The best part was when he said "Name's Bruce!" just like on "Finding Nemo."
We try to avoid candy for the children we have to see later that evening so Landen got matchbox cars...he loves to line them up on the hardwood...check out the second picture...I love how the puppies are right next to him watching him!
It was vital that ALL his cars be in the bag! Ace thought there might be something in that bag for such luck, sorry buddy!
Oh, he also got a Clifford Halloween book, he took a quick "picture walk" before heading out to the next stop!

Next year we will have TWO favorite trick-or-treaters! Can't wait!!
