My sister took my nephews to one of those mall photo studios for their Christmas photo. It turned out great. (please forgive my pictures of pictures- too lazy to properly scan them in. click to enlarge) While there she thought she’d kill two birds with one stone and get the boys’ Halloween pictures taken since …

Pug Torture

Ike gets really upset if Jon comes home with new shoes or if I wear slippers. Who knows why. So imagine his despair when Jon’s parents gave us a pair of pug slippers!

Body parts and balls of fire

I talked to my Dad over the holidays and got the update on my family in Florida. I called Jon after I hung up with my Dad and passed on the news: What is wrong with your family? What do you mean? When we call home to Minnesota we hear about so and so’s new …

Christmas Day

This year we spent Christmas day at my inlaws’ house (we rotate every year) with my MIL, FIL, Marsha, Larry, and a ginormous tree. M & L are a couple that are great friends with my inlaws and us and they are very, very good to us. They couldn’t have kids and are extremely supportive …

No cohesive theme

Kanye West reminds me of a ventriloquist’s dummy. I love his music, the way he dresses, he’s as cute as can be, but his little face doesn’t move except his mouth. He has stationary cheeks.My dogs eat dust bunnies so cleaning ceiling fans is a hassle.My biggest fears: being buried alive, becoming a tortured hostage, …

Teeny tiny ghetto pug pictures

Ok, so for Christmas I don’t get those big photo cards. I stocked up on Christmas cards already and I add a wallet sized pug snapshot to each card. This year’s picture came out great. I photo shopped a message to the top of it and uploaded the pic to order prints. My pictures came …
