Miscellaneous For Today

I thought that for fun I'd just post some miscellaneous pictures today.

The dogs are always using the pillows on the couch as their own personal pillows (or beds). It doesn't matter if the kids are using them, too. That just makes it a little more cozy! Just call her our wolf-girl. She's into anything that has to do with wolves. The blanket she's wrapped up in has wolves on it, too. She got them both for Christmas. This is another Christmas present. It's Noah's. He is loving his legos and was so excited to get the Pirates of the Caribbean--Queen Ann set. McKaylie helped him put it together. It is pretty cool and even comes with little skeleton pirates! Chad and I went to the ship's Christmas party. (We totally went for the door prizes--came home with nada) We've decided we're much too old for that kind of scene--Truth is, we've never been much for that kind of scene! Chad's ship is the USS Ponce and it's nickname is the Proud Lion and it's colors are purple and gold. This was the ice sculpture they had that night. It was really cool and never melted, which I haven't figured out how yet. It's really not unusual to see Vanilla laying on the floor like this. If she wants attention, she'll paw at the air, too. It's quite comical and apparently, it's a corgi thing. Grandma Jo sent the kids their names in vinyl lettering for the rooms. McKaylie and Noah were nice enough to pose for pictures.

NoahMcKaylie Another Christmas gift was nerf dart guns. Vance, McKaylie and Noah all got one, with extra darts. I really think that Santa should have thought this through a little better, because the kids are always trying to sneak up and shoot someone, resulting in a dart war. Chad has been in on the wars, on many occasions and now has his own nerf gun, that shoots discs. So, I find little darts and discs ALL over my house . . . in my purse . . . on the bookshelves . . . in the dogs water bowl . . . everywhere!
