Mom has counted all the tickets, put them in a tupperware container and PlusOne and Dad pulled the winners.

The winner the Lap Robe is (drum roll please) PlusOne's Science teacher! (boy is that weird!)

And the winner of the Queen size quilt is (bigger drum roll, please) Sammy, Miles, Nicholas and Billy SweetFeet Meezer!

Congrats to the winners and thanks to EVERYONE that purchased a ticket. You have helped PlusOne get HALF WAY to his goal of $7043.00! Thanks again, mom loves you all.

Yup, We're On Vacation

Which is why mom has to make at least 16 more loaves of English Muffin Bread, more cookies and do her Christmas shopping.

I think I'll just sit here and take a nap.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Despite the fact that PlusOne caught me IN the dog bed WITH the bag of cookies IN my mouth, there is no photographic evidence to prove my guilt. Therefore, I am acquitted of all charges.

Day Off

Mom has today off. What do you suppose my chances are of getting extra treats? Especially if she is supposed to bake?

Funny Things Bosses Say

Mom's boss told her yesterday that she looked tired, was she well? When mom told the receptionist that she replied for mom "I'm not tired, I'm EXHAUSTED!"

Mom had three and a half hellacious months starting in August and work is finally slowing down enough that mom can get her desk clean by the time she goes home. She is off this Friday, and next Thursday she leaves work and won't go back til January. And she's not answering her phone, either. I foresee lots of snuggling coming up.

Wordy Wednesday

Right here looks like a nice place to nap.

Yes, dad, you're awesome!

PlusOne decorating the tree??? at Aunties. Uhhh, maybe not.

This IS Great and Funny

We thought this was great and wanted to share!

Go Find Another Seat, Dad

You left this one. That means it's up for grabs and we grabbed it. Don't worry, Lucky, he won't move us.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Especially when it is supposed to be in the mid 30's today, and the mid 20's tonight!

Helping Mom Out

Mom is the official seamstress for the studio. She sews all the patches on the uniforms for the students and she has been known to hem pants and sleeves. Here I am helping her out by "breaking in" the uniforms waiting to be sewn. Aren't I being helpful?

Thankful Thursday

It was raining almost all day yesterday. Pouring rain, non-stop rain. Rain that makes us very thankful that we have nice warm houses to live in with people who love us. Yes, we are very thankful today.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Is this guy awesome or what? PlusOne showed it to mom and mom said she just had to share. I mean, come on, it's got cellos, light sabers, Darth Vader and music. (If only it had pugs, then it would be perfect.)

To see it on a bigger scree, you can click this link. :)

Remember, just two more weeks before mom pulls the winner of the raffle for the Queen Size Quilt and Lap Robe. Make sure to buy your tickets by Christmas Night. Mom will post the winner on Monday, the 26th! Check out the buy ticket to the left!

Slumbering Saturday

I think mom secretly wants to do this all day. Too bad she's not a pug!

Friday, December 2, 2011

Finally Friday

Lucky is ready to start relaxing with Dad and PlusOne. If she doesn't fall off dad first.

My Mother Is Weird

Yes, I know what you are all thinking. Our mothers are weird as well. But my mom is REALLY weird.

Here she is trying to get me interested in her karate book. Like I care about a book? Even if it is four inches thick.

This book has every technique, form and set mom has learned at karate in the last nine and a half years. As you can see, it is color coded (yellow are techniques she learned as a beginner, green is intermediate, light brownish is Black Belt Prep and white are Black Belt techniques.) Then all her forms are color coordinated, light pink Short One and Short Two, dark pink Long One and Long Two. Fluorescent Green is Form Four, Pale Blue is Form Five, Bright yellow is Form Six, and then there are the sets. They are different colors as well. I am not even going to go into the cross references pages mom has. Suffice to say that the best scientists in the world have nothing on her for linking information.

So SEE! I told you my mom was really weird. But I love her anyway. Of course, she doesn't really need the karate. All she has to do is hit someone with the book. I bet she could knock someone out with it! lol

Rain Moving In

We may have a bit of rain today. It will still be warm (mid 50's) but what good is that if it is raining? Ack, winter's coming. Sigh. Mom! Cover us up!! We don't like being cold! Or wet, for that matter.

Monday, November 28, 2011

You Know

It's hard to believe it's the end of November, what with this nice, sunny, mid 50's weather. I know, I know, as soon as I say that we are going to get a foot of snow. Bring it on. I got a warm house and lots of broccoli. And a dad who shovels a path for me in the backyard. Am I lucky or what!

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It is supposed to be 57 degrees today and mostly sunny. The normal high for today is 44 degrees. Anyone up for a sunny Sunday pug pile?

Saturday, November 26, 2011

Sunny Saturday

We are supposed to have record highs today, and lots of sun. For the last weekend in November, I am not complaining!

Friday, November 25, 2011

The Aftermath

I can't believe I ate the whole thing! (Not me, mom, dad, PlusOne, Auntie, Mr. Karate, Memere and Pepere and six others) Among other things, the family polished off TWO whole angel food cakes, sliced and toasted with chocolate between two pieces. Apparently it was yummy.

I, on the other hand, am looking forward to the broccoli that mom DIDN'T cook for Thanksgiving Dinner. MORE FOR MEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all our blogger buddies and their families.

Mupsy Monday

Mom is mupsy. She is fighting a cold, and losing, and because she's sick she doesn't want to see Little Ninja and give it to him. She's worried about Little Ninja's mom, who had surgery for two herniated discs, and she's worried about a whole bunch of things, not the least of which is raising enough money for PlusOne to go on his grand adventure with People to People.

Boy, Lucky and I sure have our work cut out for us!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Now this is my idea of how to spend a Sunday morning. Heck, maybe even every morning. lol

Silly Sister

She is sleeping beneath PlusOne's chair, waiting for him to return from karate. Silly girl.

Friday, November 18, 2011

Fun Friday

I am not sure why mom and PlusOne are excited over this get-up, but they are. I don't think that bodes well for me.

Thinking Thursday

I wonder if they had mom in mind when they created this slogan.
