Random shots when the kids were home

I was trying to get a good shot of Josh and Kendra.  
That son of mine gave me a silly grin every time I'd take the picture!

 AT LAST a decent smile!
 Sara sent this picture of the kids with Santa on a Harley.
So Santa, where is Rudolf??
Lissa and Quinn playing train with my gardening bins!
 Megan and a sleeping Peyton...silence is golden!
 Our beloved Missionaries!
- Elder Gollihur and Elder McDonald -
 What??  Now how did she get here?
(had a good time YouTubing the Target Lady and laughing 
till our sides hurt at all her commercials)
 The first year for the funky Charlie Brown Christmas tree
 Coloring with the boys.
 Peyton in his Bumbo chair.  
Where were these when my kids were little?
 Catching a moment with Lissa and Aunt Meg.

I love my dog!

I always thought I was a cat person. 
 I have had a cat all my life until now.
When our Tigger-boy pasted away, our kids 
suggested I get a dog.  Joel was gone on fires
during the summer months, (before he retired), 
 and they thought I need protection. 
So, I got my self a dog!
And how I love this little bundle of energy!
He is my shadow where ever I go, he loves to 
cuddle, play ball, and run all over the house like 
a mad little Schnauzer!  
He's soft and warm and he loves to be loved.  
Since the kids are all grown and gone ... 
he's just what I needed!
- I think I'm a dog person -
 Mr. Darcy playing with his new bunny he got for Christmas.
He thinks he's a vicious, mean little critter.
He has the funniest little growl.  It's the tiniest little noise
but he thinks he's one ferocious dog!
 Cuddling with Megan in front of the wood stove
