Well we headed to the mall yesterday to get pictures done for the kids, only to encounter the most inept photographer on the planet. The first indication that things weren't going to go well was that she had a list of poses she wanted the kids to do. Apparently she hasn't worked with many toddlers. She did manage to get one nice picture of Moira, but it really wasn't worth it since I was going to have to go somewhere else to get pictures of Kiah so we ended up with nothing. We did however decide to stop by Santa. Moira has had a healthy distrust of beards since she was born and last year she took one look at old Saint Nick and ran off in the other direction. This Santa was an old pro and took the time to read her a story while the folks before us settled up with the photographer and while we couldn't coax a smile out of her she did agree to sit with him and even squeaked out that she would like a "train present" So all in all I'll call it a success.
Kiah was completely enamored with Santa. It was VERY cute.

I don't want to take the Christmas Picture!!
You can't get out antlers and not expect some dog torture.
As usual we're insanely busy around here. Nick worked anywhere from 12-21hrs a day at work last week. Luckily they met their deadline so things should be back to normal around here. We're all looking forward to some time off around Christmas.

In other news Moira has been really into this butternut squash lately. She carts it all around the house even though she can barely lift the thing. Kiah has figured out how to pull herself to standing and gets really frustrated when she can't.
Nick and I also replaced the molding in the living and dining rooms and repainted both rooms with some help from Gabe. It turned out really nice and I'll put pictures up as soon as we figure out where to put all of the art. In other home improvement news we also purchased the tile for the kids bathroom. We have ambitions to install the floor tiles this weekend. I'm really excited to move forward on this project as our bathroom is also in need of some major remodeling.

After Moira was born I started buying kids toys and books that featured border collies. Moira pretty much showed no interest in them and so I've adopted it as a collection of sorts. I figure that it has a fine enough scope that I wont be getting border collie themed toys for every christmas.
Here's Kess helping to model the giant stuffed border collie I scored at value village today. It was only $3 and that will be more than worth the look on Nick's face when h sees it. I also got Moira's halloween costume, but that will stay under wraps until I get Kiah's.

Suki Wowed us all by winning in three different events at the Regional Disc Dog Championship. She had to compete in the expert division since Kess and I had placed first last year so I was really proud that she won anything at all. She was only 1 point away from making into the finals in the Distance and Accuracy competition, and had it not been for a nature break in the middle of her turn she would have most likely made it into the finals. All in all I was very proud of my silly little dog.

With all this hot weather we've been heading down to the beach. It's only about a 10min drive from our house to a nice park right on the water. Moira knows it's her job to convince daddy to go swimming after work and she puts on all of her charms. "pwease da da go swimming, and run and jump in the water pwease
For reasons unknown to me the frisbee dog club uses tie-dye for their performance uniforms. Jennie headed over a couple sat. ago and helped me make some things below are the more successful efforts. Next summer sometime I want to organize a tie-dye bbq before the country fair.

The first mate and his trusty sidekick
Moira discussing just how big the crab her and Juju caught was. Obviously she's a born fisherman.
