Sally's Cute!

Marie took a few adorable pictures of Sally & Oliver.

Second Snow Day of the Season

Iliff was closed again today.  I did a lot of nothing, but I also cleaned my closet.  Maybe it doesn't sound like much, but Marie can attest that it was a very big job. (Okay, everyone knows how messy my closet can get.)
Joey & I got some fresh air and made a coffee run.  We tried to walk, but the sidewalks were non-existent, so we turned around eventually.  Then, we tried to drive and got stuck in the driveway.  Luckily, dad gave me a handy shovel.

First Snow Day of the Season

Image via here

We're getting quite the little snow storm today, so I'm working from home.  Sally's been staying with us the last few days and I've had the opportunity to witness the longest tug o' war game ever!  There's no clear winner thus far.  Oliver's stronger, but Sally can outlast him and she's quicker.  Marie & I have been affectionately calling them "2 dummies in a jar." Here are just a few things that they've found to tug with.


On Saturday, Oliver & picked up Beth and had an early morning coffee walk at Wash Park.  Then, Oli & I met up with my old neighbor, Allie, and her mini dachshund, Maggie at the Farmer's Market.
I got a few apples and a bottle of cherry cider. Mmmmmm
Allie asked if I wanted to take Oli down the slide and after I politely declined, she decided to go ahead and take him.  I think it was Oliver's first slide ride.

It must've been really great, but he fell asleep in the car almost immediately.

Race for the Cure = Complete!

I forgot to post about the Race for the Cure! It was a cold, cold morning, but it turned into a beautiful day.  Loren, Adam & I finished in (not) record time.
It went a lot smoother than I anticipated and when I got home, Oliver was sound asleep.

Falling for Beth's Fall Photos

Beth took some really great photos and I just had to share them with you.  I want to look at the top photo every day..and I probably will!  I borrowed these from her Facebook album.

Where are the bland books?

This photo is just perfect. It makes me want to start buying more colorful books. Marie brought up an interesting point - Where are all the bland-colored books? Hmmmmm

Three Point Turn

This video cracks me up! I pretty much reference it every time I'm trying to park, but no one seems to remember this scene. P.S. I think this is the only part of any of the Austin Power movies I remember.

Joey's Book Care Book

My nephew Joey sent me the sweetest book. He even dedicated to me. (Yes, my name is spelled M-a-e-y.) It's called, "My Book Care Book." In case you're wondering, above is a photo of Oliver, in a top hat, pulling a ladybug in a cage. I had to call Joey for clarification on that one.
Below is someone trying to steal a book - the cage is about to drop on them, I think. The other pages also involved cages or locked treasure or a combination of both.

Mini pies! Awww

I'm digging these baby pies. Aren't they so adorable? I don't care for hot fruit (Beth is with me on that one!), but I do love a pumpkin pie!

And I can't think about pie without mentioning one of my favorite shows, Pushing Daisies.

Wake Up Call!

What's the best way to wake up in the morning....Well, besides something involving fresh strawberries and coffee, I would say it's a phone call from Karley!!
