A very fun Christmas!

I had a great Christmas. :-) My sister, brother, and I got a Nintendo Wii for Christmas!
It looks like this except it is black. :-) We have been playing it most of today. It is so much fun! :-) Tucker got a big bone to chew on... he loves it but it makes him sick so I am going to have to take it away. :( We have had lots
of fun today. :-) Tucker was being really funny and instead of catching the Frisbee I threw with his mouth he caught it with his paws! Lol. He also was trying to eat our piano pedals. Silly puppy. My grandparents came for a little over a week! We had lots of fun and I even got to go to Pet's Smart for the first time! I now love that store! :) Also over December I got hooked on a new game. It is called Howrse. :) I am jeanne0952 on it. If you would like to join please put jeanne0952 as your referral. Thanks!

A little break.

I am going to take a little break[about 2 weeks] from blogging. I have been super busy with all the extra holiday activities that have been going on including: caroling(tonight), cantatas, playing in the snow, training Tuck, getting ready for my grandparents to come(they come tomorrow!!!)... I have also been training with Tucker to pull our sled around. More on the later. So anyway Merry Christmas and see you in a couple of weeks!

Guess what? This is the temperature right now:
This is what this severe weather alert says:
 Brr! And guess what? We took Tucker on a walk last night. :-) It was sooo COLD! And we got ALLOT of snow. :) We only got about 3 inches but it blew around allot yesterday so in some places it is about 2 or 3 feet high! The weather was so bad that yesterday church was canceled in the morning. :o So it is really cold! :-)

Trying to give Tucker a bath...

Today I tried to give Tucker a bath... It was HORRIBLE! Or should I say HE was horrible. What I mean by horrible is stuff like jumping out of the bathtub splashing me and spraying water everywhere. Or wining and pulling hard trying to get out of the tub. Right now he is barking cause I put him in his kennel cause otherwise he would get water on everything. I hate giving him a bath.

Hip! Hip! Hooray!

Tucker has learned to come when called! See, I have tried to teach him to come several different ways. I mean I even tried doing it the way his puppy kindergarten teacher said to... let me say that none of them worked. They worked for a little while and then didn't. I really had given up. Yesterday I was reading a magazine about dogs I had gotten out of the library. In it they had an article that explained in 4 short steps how to teach your dog to come. I decided that I would try but wasn't too hopeful. And guess what? It worked! In case you are wondering I got it out of an old Dog magazine. Whoopee! Now if we could only get Tucker to leave "human food" alone...

So I fixed all my html! Yippee! Trust me you want to download your template before you play around with your html. You do. Really. Thanks for waiting!

Guess what I did?

I ruined my blog. Not really but close. Let me explain..
I was playing around with my HTML.. bad idea to begin with so that is why I normally do it first with a blog that I don't use anymore. But I was following a tutorial so I didn't. And you probably can guess the rest. I messed up. Bigtime. So I had to upload the template I had downloaded(Thanks Awel for the idea). So all my changes I had just made are gone. So that means my blog will be closed for a couple of hours later today. :P I hate doing that to you guys. Sorry. But I am so thankful that I didn't ruin my blog...

The Silver Pencil- Monthy Book Review @ Hannah's Hangout

This is my first monthly book review and I just finished this book not more then 30 seconds ago! I am going to review the book: The Silver Pencil a Newberry Medal book by Alice Dalgliesh. Janet is given a silver pencil one Christmas from her father. Soon afterwords her father dies from a heart attack. After this Ms. Dalgliesh tells Janet's story a twist of ups and downs. I loved this book and rate it 4/5 stars. Overall this was a good story and I couldn't put it down. I recommend it for ages 10+. Happy Reading!

I have decided to take off my background. It was taking too long for my blog to load. Sometimes it wouldn't load at all for me. I might be adding it back in the future but for now you will have to endure with a plain white background. Have a great day!

Playing with Tuck!

Most of the time all Tucker does is sleep. I took these pictures of him. I couldn't resist making them black and white.

Then he gets in a playful mood. :-)

Fun and some surprises!

Yesterday my mom and I went shoe shopping at Bass. I got two new pairs of winter boots! I am so excited! One pair is for the snow and the other are more dressy. They are both really comfy. Sometime soon we are going to spray the dressier pair with waterproofing spray so they will be good for the snow! I couldn't get very good photos of them but at least you can tell what they look like. :-)

Winter Boots

Also yesterday we set up our Christmas tree and train! It was really fun and I really like how it turned out!

And now for the surprises! We saw a deer out our front window! It was really surprising cause we live in a city. I have no idea were she came from but it was pretty amazing! :-)
Sorry about the bad picture.
