So, Our poor puppies have been a little neglected in the grooming…and now that winter is here we again have to find a way to deal with the snow getting packed into the hair on their legs …burrrr
You would think that leaving their hair longer…would keep them warmer…right??? Nope…just gives the snow a way to hang on and freeze them even once they’re inside The only way to get it off is to run the whole darned dog under warm water…ummmm every time they pee? Not going to happen….
So we took them to a groomer today…I asked for this cut…and they did an awesome job (Barkingdales on Adelaide… love love love!)… it’s exactly what we need right now so that they don’t get their hair pulled…the snow doesn’t pack their legs…and the don’t get knots in their hair…buttt…..I wasn’t totally prepared for this.

Not long after I was looking at them I was reading the blogs I frequent…and guess what I saw! This pattern!
And here’s what I made
I used a big chunk on fleece that I actually bought over 5 years ago from the remnants pile…didn’t do anything with and ended up using as a blanket, and I used the flannel that I got on sale at fabricland before Ruby was born for $1.99 a yard! So, this cost less than $10 including the purchase of the pattern!
It’s a pdf pattern, so you just download it and print in on your printer and tape the sheets together, no waiting. It was really easy to follow (even for a beginner like me…although I did make a mistake…it’s not like there wasn’t a very clear instruction with a big photo right there…but…I somehow ignored it..lol), so yes, clear instructions with pictures showing you what to do at every step and really clear explanations.
Love it love it…. see how cozy she looks I put it in her stroller yesterday and it was wonderful in there too!
Edit: Oh look! Now's she's famous! :-)

These were so good I had to post about them…but…I couldn’t do that without a picture…and well…this was all that was left.
Go here, make these….trust me….they’re ooey…goooey…good…
(oh..but I had to cook mine an extra 10 minutes or so…unusual for my oven…perhaps I had really wet zucchini?….. )
We’re making this recipe for dinner tonight…I’ll report back Happy Eating.
Edit: yup...it's good ;-) I added a wee bit of salt...and some extra cheese on top...

Looks like pink bunny is the winner. So soft…and those ears feel nice on the cheekies. I didn’t think Little Pickle was going to end up with a “must have” snuggly thing…but I think she may have very suddenly become irreversibly attached to pink bunny. It was nap time on Sunday and I went to take pink bunny and move her to the end of the crib…. soft wimper..then a cry… so I offered pink bunny back and she was immediately snuggled against Pickle’s face and she turned her head and closed her eyes….So cute….
Mommy and Daddy are happy with her choice… pink bunny is a hand knit gift…nothing says love like hand knits…and added bonus, while pink bunny could never be replaced, if necessary an imposter bunny could be fashioned relatively easily.

Good thing I love making stuff…because this little lady is tough to fit with clothing…. onsies are pretty much out for her for now…. To fit her length they fall off her shoulders…. she’s got a long torso. So, hence the dress over pants, so when we pick her up the extra length will hopefully keep her cute little belly all warm and under cover….but really…. if it wasn’t for the warmth factor I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing a little more of that little belly..tee hee….

So, the sad realization that I don’t have a single photo of my mom and I has lead me to subject my poor sweet baby to an impromptu self portrait photo session (as in holding the camera in one hand and taking bad photos with the other). They might look silly…and Ruby looks either confused or less than impressed…hmmm perhaps shocked by the camera flash! …but… she will at least have a handful of pictures of us together. Something I so so tearfully wish that I had with my mom.

I was playing with black and white because I love the look and thought I might make a few of her scrapbook pages with black and white photos…whatcha think?
Now that grabbing things is in full swing, and the attempt must be made to eat everything, this is the new favourite toy. It’s perfect. The black elastic everywhere is easy for little hands to get ahold of. The little knobbley things make a happy little “plink” sound when it’s tipped back and forth, and the round ends are super tasty! Now…just check out those tweety bird cheeks…they’re hard to capture on camera…since they only show up with a certain facial expression….but I just LOVE THEM!

It appears I’ve been tardy with uploading pictures of our sweet girl. So here are a few to make up for my delay :-) Ruby will tell you about all the pictures below…really she will…I’m not putting words in her mouth…
I have sleepy eyes, since picture time always seems to be during early morning play time.
Seriously mummy….stop flashing that thing in my eyes!
Morning bible study with Daddy. I like to talk a lot while he’s reading. This might be my favourite time of the day.
I’m totally rocking tummy time…look how strong my neck is…boy that blanket looks tasty… I wonder if I can get that in my mouth.
