Day 10 (on day 11... oops!)

Okay, so I missed a day. Last night was one of those chill on the sofa kind of nights and Reid and I watched a movie and I completely forgot about the blog world. So today I'll just have to post twice!

So, this morning I am thankful for Tater, our beagle. This morning Reid took him out and fed him breakfast for me since it was my first day off. Then Tater came back to bed with me and slept until it was time for mommy to get up (9am, not too bad). We went for a walk in the park where he was cautious but forward moving both times we crossed the bridge (which is a huge bridge... but he has always done this thing when we cross a bridge where he spreads out his toes really wide and then crouches really low to the ground as he sort of marine-style crawls... very funny).

We got back and he has been desperate for my attention (and for me to leave the computer) since! When I wouldn't give him my attention, he started playing with his toys which is usually a good sign. However, I looked out the door a few minutes after I started and found this:

(This is a disemboweled moose (I had to take the squeeker away from him, much to his chagrins)
and a blue bunny minus one leg!)

I thought that distraction might be the best course of action. So I gave him a kong (or as we call them at our house passies, since it takes the place of a pacifier). He always loves those. His reaction to my taking his picture while he was eating it:

(I'll leave it up to whether he is licking his lips or sticking his tongue out at me)
Sometimes he is a little bit of a pill (after finishing his kong we went back to tearing up the moose some more... did I mention that was supposed to be a present for his fur cousin, my parent's dog Albie, until he found it in the closet?). But he is ours and we wouldn't change a thing about him. I know that he had another family in Virginia before us but I do fully believe they were just time holders until we came along for him. And as I type this, he has jumped in his laundry basket which he has used as a bed since we got him which is sitting right next to me and is falling asleep.
(A cute picture of a lazy Saturday morning with two of my babies and me... I think Tater looks forward to the weekends as much as we do because it means cuddle time!)

I am thankful for the internet and bunches of our friends being able to not lose each other completely.
(Good thing Mer got a blog, huh?)
This fall there was a Civil War dude at the prairie and Reid's name came up in discussion and we were reminiscing about how nice you guys were to have around. (The civil war dude, too.)
I'll add you to my favorites and come see you often.
