A unexpected weekend at home........

Hmph!   Duncan and I had expected to leave the hubby at home(he has to work all weekend)  and travel to my Cousin R's college graduation and a lovely weekend with my family......... complications arose and now we get to spend the weekend at home cuddling and baking and enjoying our weekend before Christmas arrives...... I am very disappointed that I didn't get to watch my little R walk across the stage but if I am stuck at home I guess it could be worse than hanging out with this little cutie and playing all day :0)
Yep Duncan just "HAD" to turn on the blinky light on his collar!

What do we do now mom?

Dad just throw it already!

It was love

Duncan's date with Mattie was a fantastic success.....He and Mattie ran and played and shared bones. They were inseparable! I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures of the love birds together but I am sure there will be puppy play dates in the future...... :0) The best part was that they were completely clueless about all the drinks and snacks around so mommy was free to enjoy her spiked eggnog  ;0)  the only embarrasment of the night was that they were TOO friendly if you catch my drift......(at least they are both fixed, opposite gender, and neither objected to the others advances lol )  Anyway...... I would classify this date a success... and the by the time we left it was a blustery windy 17 degrees outside.... I guess it was a good thing Duncan wore a sweater and I wore my cutest warmest boots!

Duncan had a date :0)

Yesterday evening I went to a girls night/christmas party at my friend K's. Duncan was requested as a special guest and only Male in attendance so that he could meet and play with K's little pup Mattie!  He felt so honored that he spent the whole day resting and dressing up

Getting Ready for Turkey Day!

I made my first homemade Pecan Pie FROM SCRATCH!
My crust..... the first homemade crust I have ever made!

I was very proud even though it was very "rustic"

The fresh pecans I used in my pie....... I have plenty leftover, what to make next hmmm????

it took a lot of manuevering to get it in rolled out thin enough!

My last look at my pie before it went in the oven

The finished product!


Hope it tastes good!
We are heading to my parents for Thanksgiving in the morning,  Duncan is quite excited to see all his human and k-9 cousins!

Duncan is a Winner!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember this photo I posted of Duncan in his Halloween costume?  Well I entered it in a new doggie bakery's halloween photo contest that wanted pictures of  dogs in their Halloween finest.The prize for the top three submissions was a treat box from the bakery and GUESS WHAT! He won first place!  Duncan did his little happy dance around the house when I told him and he have been eagerly awaiting its arrival in the mail (the bakery was not local) It finally came today......

Needless to Say Duncan is a happy and FULL puppy!
