Our 2017 Calendar

Look what came in the mail!   Mom says it's the calendar for our computer room for next year!

 Now that is the most handsomest boy ever!   I do look a wee bit younger, don't I.
 That's Mitch with his bowlful of apples and mom is trying to fool me into thinking that my tennis ball could pass for an apple.  Silly mom!
 This is the perfect picture of you, Molly!  You sure do love your tennis balls.
 I sure wish that I could have met you, Mitch.    I think we would have liked each other.
VistaPrint did an awesome job on our calendar.  We will definitely order from them again.  This is not an advertisement.  We are just very happy with our calendar☺

Love ya lots♥

Fourteen

We have 14 Christmas trees in our house this year.  One is big, 7 are small and 6 of them are minis.
Mom brought home gram's boxes that contained all of her Christmas trees and she's been adding lights and cheer all over the house☺  This would have been the time of year when mom would have headed to Florida to see gram and gramp.   Who knew that life could change so drastically in only a year.

The big~

Another one in the family room~

Our 10th Blogaversary

Ten years ago today, Maggie shared her sweet face with Blogville, only it wasn't called Blogville back then.
Maggie posted on the blog all by herself for 3 months until Mitch made his entrance and it was Maggie and Mitch's blog for a long time. 

 They had so many fun adventures and we miss them both tremendously.
When Maggie passed in January of 2012, Mitch carried the blog all by himself for 3 months.
Until, I, Molly appeared at the very end of April of 2012.    And Mitch and I had fun times together until he joined Maggie at Rainbow Bridge in April 2016. 
I only got to post on the blog all by myself for 9 days until Mackie joined our family in April  of this year.

And now the blog belongs to me and Mackie and we will do our best to make Maggie and Mitch proud of us and proud of the blog that they started 10 years ago.      
Happy 10th Blogaversary to all of us!
Love ya lots♥

PeanutButter Knuckle Bones

We are working on a timber frame project in our workshop.    It will be a barn for our neighbor, Miss Heather.   Mom didn't want us to be too bored so she bought us these~

 I promise that I won't whine that Mackie got the bigger bone.
 Is it big enough for you, Mackie?!
 They are so yummy~
 And they are keeping us busy while dad and mom work~
 Yes, they are a little bit messy.  Thank doG for the workshop!

Today, I got locked out away from the action.
It seems that SOMEONE was eating too many wood chips and too much sawdust and last night HE had a tummy ache.
Please - I promise that I won't eat any more.   I'll be a good boy from now on.  I wanna come in!
 I'll even help you mop the wood chips up!
 
Yes, to a banana break, dad!
Back to gooping timbers!
Love ya lots♥

The Making of the Pumpkin Pie

We helped mom make pumpkin pie this morning☺
Mom decided that instead of making the traditional pie dough crust, she would make a gingersnap pie crust instead.  

 Gingersnaps are good cookies!
 She used 1 1/2 cups of ground gingersnaps and added 1/4 cup of melted butter and a dash of orange peel. 
Press it into the bottom of your pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.   Let cool and add the pumpkin filling. 
 Now to tastetest the pumpkin before it gets mixed with all of the spices and stuffs.  
 When do we get to cut into the pumpkin pie, mom?!   yummmmmmmmmmm
Love ya lots♥
