Zooming in a Winter Wonderland

I got my first ever white Christmas (albeit it was around 7 PM, but still, it was Christmas)!  Riley and Chloe have had fun playing out in the snow today.

Christmas sure wears Riley out!

The snow last night (on Christmas).

The snow so far this morning.

Pretty tree.

Garden flag.

Riley zooming alone.

Burying her snout in it.

Look at the ears…Chloe is a wannabe Cattle Dog!

See what I mean?

Zoom!

Just so you get an idea of how much snow we have…at least 6 or 7 inches.

Ornament Stealer

Riley is now officially an ornament stealer.  We have our Christmas tree in one half of our house that is usually blocked off with baby gates (we’ve got more metal bars in our house than Alcatraz…actually we have 3 metal baby gates up so it does look a little like an armory or something).  We ate dinner in our dining room tonight which is on the Christmas tree half of the house.  Riley was exploring the tree and next thing we knew she had pulled a little pine cone ornament off of the tree.

Luckily after that she left all the other ornaments and the presents alone.  I guess she felt like she was in the great outdoors with the live tree and a pine cone to boot!

Somehow, and this now makes no since to me, Riley was rewarded after dinner with the rest of our snow peas.  She enjoyed them so much.  She even ate them slowly (which she usually scarfs everything down as fast as she can).

Waiting for the “okay” to be released to eat them.
Then it was play time!  Riley got a nylon toy dumbell type thing in her goodie bag from Care-A-Lot the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  She has been enjoying the heck out of destroying and playing with the toy.  Here’s what’s left of it:
That’s right, it just looks like a small hole-y snowball or something.  Maybe this could join Frankie Furter’s snowman collection…?
Oh, and you can see her new bed in the background.  I took it out of her crate so she’d actually use it and will put it back in her crate the next time she has to go in there.  She’s actually laid on in a few times but then decides to move up to the couch.  Oh well.
