So much going on

Tinkerbell here.

Let me start by apologizing for making a later than normal post today. We have so much going on in our world right now. We live in the midwest (Ohio to be exact) and have been hit with a 3-punch winter storm that began on Tuesday. We got a bunch of snow. Then we had an ice storm. Then we got a bunch of snow again. It's really pretty outside to look at but poor Oscar keeps getting buried because it is deeper than he is tall. He has become a deck pooper and pee-er. Tuck and I think it's great! We run around burying our nose in the snow. It was a little hard to go to the potty when the ice storm hit though.

ur kids have been home from school since Tuesday. The oldest has a major case of cabin fever going on. Remember, she's 15, in high school, and said something about dieing if she doesn't go back to school tomorrow and see all her friends. Thank goodness for this thing called Facebook. It seems to be the only bright spot (besides us, of course) in her life. She has decided that her 5 year old sister is a necessary evil. We think she's great. She plays with us a lot and gives us tons of hugs.

Our mom had to brave the outside and deal with the idiots out there... those are her words, not ours. We don't even know what an idiot is... to get to work yesterday only to be sent home early because of the conditions outside.
We are super happy because we like it when our family is around all the time. We've taken a bunch of pictures and will post them later.

First, we have other business to take care of.
A special thank-you goes out to our two favorite basset hounds Martha and Bailey. We think they are really neat and would love to go on adventures with them. They even have a fun car to ride in that is named after them. Too cool! Anyway, they sent us a lovely award. The award represents the blogs that truly love someone or something. It´s a ladybug and they are known for giving us luck whenever we see one. The ladybug reminds us of warmer weather to come and we think we are truly, three lucky dogs. We like to reflect on how lucky we are every Friday too. If you've never visited their blog before, please take a moment to today. They are wonderful!

Thank you ladies for this wonderful award.

(UPDATE: apparently the award linked to a very bad site so we took it off. But we appreciate the thought. That is what matters.)

We haven't decided to who to send it to yet. Mom says she'll get around to that... soon. She mentioned something about a lot of irons in a fire. We don't even have a fireplace so I have no idea what
she is talking about.

Well, we're off to enjoy the snow or what many refer to here in the Cincinnati area as "white death". Wishing you a wonderful, fun-filled day!

Uh oh, you live with a teenager? My brother and sister used to be those, but they outgrew it. Maybe your sissy could shovel out some pee pee paths while she is home from school...

Thank you for your kind words - we appreciate them.
We hope you keep safe and warm in the snow and survive your forced stay inside with a teenager!
love and kisses
