Dallas Trip

We had the best trip to Dallas last week. It was so nice to see Chan, Lilly and Thomas. We went shopping one day and shopped and shopped some more. I actually found 1 pair of shoes in my size....yep just one. We walked to the park down from their house and Lilly played on the slides there. It was really funny to see Chan slide down the tube slide with her, I think she was a little scared to slide with her. Then one day we went to the zoo and had a great time. I think I loved the giraffes the best. They were so big, tall and just so graceful. On the trip there we had a 2 hour traffic jam at six flags. Of course I had to go on Spring Break and I guess everyone else did too. Coming home wasn't to bad just about a 30 minutes traffic jam at the exit for the Ft Worth zoo. I'm glad we went to the Dallas zoo. I have to say I really think Dallas has a bigger zoo. Once they get the new part done for the elephants and giraffe I know they do. It was lots of walking. I loved every day and minute of it. And Andrea didn't get me lost this time.....she was a good navigator. Tucker traveled along with us too he is the traveling Westie.

The weather man finally got one right. It started snowing last night about midnight and continued on until after lunch today. It was so pretty waking up to so much snow. In West Texas we're just not use to snow. Lila was my measuring stick. She went out in the yard and it came up to her tummy, she looked like a dog with no legs, so when we went in the house I got the ruler out and measured her legs, to funny I know. She didn't like the snow and wouldn't go back out in it again. Of course I wanted a picture but she just wouldn't cooperate. Louie didn't seem to mind it though. I guess having long legs helps.

Fun Evening

After going to the Doctor yesterday and having my face blow torched well that's what it felt like anyway, I stayed home for the afternoon. Then last night I watched the Westminister Dog Show and Sadie the Scottie won she was so cute. Between that and the Olympics it was a good evening of TV watching with the Dogs.

This last week the Dallas kids got lots and snow and Lilly had her first Snow day and experience. I think she finally liked it.

Christmas 2009

It was a great Christmas I have to say. We all got way to much and promise to cut back next year. I see smaller presents in the future. It was so good to see Lilly, Chan and Thomas. We also had 4 dogs and 2 cats in the house. I loved having so many days off that's for sure. When Chan, Thomas and Lilly headed home their car was full the top. I don't think they could have gotten anything else in there. Andrea is still home and it's nice having her there. At least the house is not so quiet as it could be right now. Lilly keeps the house hopping with sounds and activity, with here there you never have a dull moment. She's a little live wire. After Millie the westie left the other 3 slept all day long. We had dogs running here and there all the time. I do love my Beagles though, and Tucker is so cute. Enjoy the pictures.

We had a great Thanksgiving at my house this year. Chan, Thomas, Lilly, Millie, Doodle, Pepper, Andrea, Tucker, mom and dad were all there. My turkey tried to not get done but it finally did. Next time Ranch House is the place to go for a turkey. But all in all it was a nice day. It's always nice to have the family together. Then we had 2 birthday parties. One for Lilly and one for Chan. Lilly was 2 on November 19th and Chan will be 28 WOW 28 on December 6th. Am I old or what.
When Chan got there I wasn't feeling well and neither was she. Sinus had struck again. Then Andrea got it then Dale. So we just all were sick at the same time at least we were all together for it I guess. We put up the tree and decorated it and Lilly had a great time with it. She's such a little doll and very hard headed already. She loves to paint and color. It's really been nice this year I've gotten to see her nearly every month since July. They'll be back in December around the 23rd then we get to have more fun playing.
