Twins B & T

A few new photos of Bobby & Tommy.
They are growing up so fast!
Everytime I see them they are heavier, bigger, stronger and getting awesome little personalities all figured out. Bobby is crawling all over the place and Tommy has finally figured out he can fight back when Bobby takes a toy, in fact he's now the little instigator and they wrestle around a lot.
They both are little darlings and I miss them as soon as they are gone! It's so great that my sister can bring them over and stay a few days or a week sometimes. They already know me and crack their huge smiles when I come in.
They really like Willow, too.
Last week they laughed when she licked their ear and tried to reach out and pet/grab her fur.
I can't wait until I see them again! I love playing with them and cuddling and feeding them as much as I can when they are here.

A few months have gone by and not a lot has changed.

My hair has grown a bit longer. I may have a few more freckles on my nose from a bit of spring sunshine that April brought. Willow, my puppy, has grown taller and stronger. And May has been full of blossoms, flowers and more rain than usual.

We had a great visit with my brother, Mike, his fiancee Darcy and her two cute boys Caleb and Noah. They are planning their wedding for here in Victoria in the Fall and I was happy to help and play with the boys!

My mom, sister and I had a fabulous time on our annual spa trip up to the Kingfisher, although this year we only stayed one night while my dad, Poppa, looked after Angie's twin boys. What a great grandpa! The boys are growing like weeds and laughing and almost sitting up now. The twins were also dedicated at our church recently.

Last weekend I had an excellent camping trip with some friends up island. Yes, it rained a lot and the first night was wickedly cold but we just stoked the campfire, hung a few tarps and ate lots of hot dogs and beans! Have I mentioned it before that I love camping!? I miss the smokey campfire smell already.

I've seen quite a few great movies, and a few so-so ones lately, too.

On the good/great list:
The Book of Eli, Alice in Wonderland, How to Train Your Dragon, Avatar, Green Zone, Ghost Writer, Imax: Hubble, Remember Me


Shutter Island, The Losers, Clash of the Titans, Iron Man 2

Here's a few newer photos of my cute, fiesty little Willow.

Willow the Westie (3-6 Months)

Just a quick update with some photos
and a bit of video of my Westie puppy, Willow.

She was 6 months old on February 15th and is growing and learning fast and well!
She can sit, shake both paws, roll over, lie down, step nicely into her harness, walks well and loves to play with anyone or any dog!
Her favourite things right now are: ice cubes, vanilla yoghurt, my Dad, and Buddy, the Upstairs Dog.
She still is working on: not jumping up, coming when called (works almost every time!), staying on command and she is almost totally house-trained...only one or two slip ups this last month.

I love her to bits and she is a great little friend to have around!!

Almost 3 months old...exploring a basket.

She loves lying in front of the fireplace, soaking up the heat.

Posing on my bed.

I asked her to Sit so I could snap a photo and she curled up between my feet!

Sweet sleepy puppy.

Being silly and jumping up while I was trying to take a photo.

Sooooo dirty and muddy after a great playtime on Dallas Road with her doggy friends.

All white and fluffy after her bath!!

Sitting all cute waiting to go outside - 6 months old.

And here is a bit of video I had from the past few months. She keeps me pretty busy that I always forget to take my camera along with me for some new photos or video clips.
Watch for one of her regular Dallas Road friends, Trigger!
