Sorry for the lack of posts over the weekend. New Year’s Day I came down with a cold that I still have…poo! I guess it’s a good way to start out the New Year because I can get it over with early in the year (assuming I don’t catch another cold this year). I really can’t complain though because the last time I had a cold was in the summer of 2009.
Anyway…remember how Jimmy’s (Aunt Baddy’s husband) Aunt Leslie wanted to meet Riley? Well here are some of the pictures. Riley was all over her. She loved Leslie. She was a bit too exuberant though. Leslie’s facial expressions say it all:
Riley did eventually calm down after 10 minutes or so. Here’s a family picture we got of Jimmy’s family:
And then here’s some pictures of some Christmas gifts we just got. One gift was from some friends of mine who had been out of town for Christmas. I love getting Christmas gifts after Christmas because I get excited that Christmas is still unofficially going on!
First up is the GINORMOUS rope toy I bought Riley with some of the Petsmart gift card Aunt Nancy and Frank gave us for Christmas. Riley loves rope toys–actually, to be precise, she loves to shake them–and I usually only get her a medium size rope toy and she chews through it. So far she hasn’t chewed through this extra large one. Fingers crossed.
Now here’s the toy my friends got Riley. Riley has really enjoyed playing fetch with this toy! They also gave her a stocking full of rawhides but I didn’t think to snap a picture of them. She’s only eaten one out of the stocking so far so I’m sure I’ll get a picture of her eating the rest.
I hope everyone’s been doing well and have had a happy New Year! I haven’t been able to get around to the blogs because I feel like I’ve been punched in the face repeatedly with this cold. I’ve been watching Season 1 of Glee. Funny show. I didn’t think I’d like it but Aunt Baddy insisted I watch it and I actually do like it.

Notice which dog is the calm one in the pictures? Yes, it's Chloe the dog dubbed by Riley's mom as the dog most likely to bite her! Riley is quite exuberant when she meets new people…she loves everyone she meets. You are only safe from her exuberance if you are elderly, in a wheelchair or walk with a cane…then she's very calm and gentle towards you!Riley's Grandma
