The Tree has Landed!


Stanzie gives it the once over.

Yes, it smells very nice.

And it is very tall.

We give it the Stanzie and Wyatt "Stamp of Approval"!

Now, how are we going to get it in the house?

Chicken Soup and Apple Pie!

Dad made his homemade chicken soup today.
Stanzie knows.....you can't get anything past this chow hound.

The Dessert 
Individual take and bake apple pies. 
Made by the most talented pastry chef and our neighbor, Arnie!
How can a man so talented at woodworking, also make the best pie crust this side of the Rockies?!?

Sorry Wyatt. 
You can lick the plate when we are finished.

Wyatt TV

I don't want to watch those scary Net Flix shows.

Please turn it back to the Happy Hallmark Channel.

Steaming Pumpkins!

Remember the decorative pumpkins?

We are cooking them up!
Some for the freezer, some in our dog bowls.

We can't wait for them to cool down.

A scoop of pumpkin on our dog dinner is the best!

Hey Little Bird

Yesterday, we looked out our big glass window and witnessed about 20 of these little birds looking in our window!
Some of them sat politely on the deck and had their picture taken.

Some of them sat on the window sills and stared into our house.

Some had yellow mohawks, some had orange mohawks, some had no-hawks.
This fat little guy looked like a baby.

Maybe they were just tired from a long journey and taking a break?
They hung out for about 30 minutes and then they were gone.

Safe travels feathered friends,

Ice Road Truckers

 The folks were heading up to Hood River and forgot to check the road conditions :(
Hey, it's only November!
So sad, our white truck danced across the ice and kissed the concrete median.
Just a small amount of drama, the folks are A-OK.
The truck is just slightly smooshed and the truck did not hit anybody else as it did the ice dance.
But, it would not start again. So, onto the tow truck it went.

As the folks sat safely on the shoulder waiting for the AAA tow truck, they witnessed multiple accidents. Some drivers left in ambulances :(

Us dogs were smart enough to stay home!

Now, we have a tiny car for the next 3 weeks.
Stanzie likes it very much, except she takes up the entire back seat.

I like to ride shotgun!

Only enough room for one human. Not the ideal car for us.

We are still together and that is ALL that matters.
