Before you say anything....

...keep in mind I didn't say I would post EVERYDAY. I said that WHEN I post, and you leave a comment for THAT day....you will get your name put in the Blogiversary Drawing. If I post only 15 times till January 27 and you comment 30 times, that means you are getting only 15 chances to win! Does everyone understand that! Good, cause now I don't feel so bad about not posting yesterday!!! (tee-hee!) You thought I was angry, didn't you? NAW!!!

Okay.....I just have to show yinz guys this....remember this little guy?.....

Who then became this little bigger guy?.........


Well, now our 5 month old (yep- 5 month old) has turned into a full-fledged "lap dog"!



That's really not a good picture of him....his face is so adorable..especially when he looks at you with those big black eyes of his....he is sooooo sweet! And he is so in love with our little Chloe (the terrier) She will be munching away on something and he will lay next to her and put his huge head on her back...and she doesn't even budge. Luckily, she is "fixed"!!! Whadda crew we have!!

I also wanted to show these little ornaments I finished up. Actually I stitched them a long time ago and ran across them as I was going through my cross stitch stash.
I believe that people who now live in heaven sometimes send us little messages just to let us know they are there and thinking about us as we do them. The one little ornament has the name "Joe" on it. I had planned one year to stitch little stockings for everyone in the family but only made one for my brother Joe. Well, he lives in Heaven now with his wife, and my parents, and I think finding this was his way of telling me Merry Christmas and, being as he was a tremendous animal lover and owned quite a few in his day, he was telling me, "hey man, nice dogs!"
So, with that, (don't forget those comments!)....till tomorrow, yinz crazy guys!

That Eros gets me going every time I see him! What a cutie.

I think you're right about the ornaments! What a neat thing to find!

He's adorable, they do grow up fast. Sasha still tries to crawl in my lap on occation, I don't think they realize how big they are.

The little ornaments are cute too, what a lovely thought about those in heaven sending messages.

You know that if your Sweetie Man EVER gets sick of Eros trying to get up on his lap-give me a call-I'll be there in a heartbeat-so cute!!!!!
On another note-sorry to hear about your coach-he did do an amazing job for you guys over the years. I'm still fuming from Saban-just so glad that Don Shula called him out on his lying!
Anyway...what a beautiful way to remember your brother.

Aw! Love the progression from puppy to lap dog! Just adorable. I used to have a black lab named Yogi. He was real sweet but he could jump really high and was constantly jumping over the fence!

Love the little ornies. They are so cute. I'm sure your brother is smiling down at you.

I didn't even know you had a contest going on. See, I've been commenting just 'cause I loved to! And to indicate just how much I love to, according to the rules outlined in this post, NONE OF MY COMMENTS EVEN COUNT towards that contest! {Ok, so I wasn't commenting previously because of a contest, but then realizing there is a contest...it's kinda sad to think none of my comments count in your contest...Guess I'd better come visit daily, huh? You're a sneaky contest holder...Is this your way of getting people to come to your blog not only DAILY but also so that they'll COMMENT?! Ooohhh, you are so shameful, Lucy. So so shameful! ;) }
