The joys of children...

Last night, it was 30 something degrees, and Sitka is positive that she has to go out every 30 minutes or so to smell the air and check things out. It was up and down all night. Wanting, no...needing to go outside to smell that cool brisk air! The look that she gets is priceless. She walks outside, immediately throws the head in the air, squints her eyes (sun or no sun), and wiggles the nose to smell the scents! It is so cute! I will have to try to capture that with a picture.

Needless to say, it was yet another restless night in the MaconDawg's home!

On another note, Miss Tia thought she needed to go under the covers ... then out from under the covers... then under again... and out... and in... and out... Well you get the idea. It was non-stop. I really thing the two team up and say, "Hey, let's bug the crap out of mom and dad so they don't get any sleep."

I would never trade them for anything in the world. They are my children! And when MaconDawg and I decide to have nonfurry kids, our kids with fur will remain as important in our lives as they are now!!!

Here are a few pictures of them... I love taking close up photos of their faces... so sweet and innocent!!!

My Fur Kids...

Well.. a few days late, but as promised.. here are some pictures of my fur kids.

Miss Sitka (Siberian Husky), aka Princess, Va-mosh-ka, lou-lou... whatever may come out when we call her. She will be 3 years old this March.
Oh so tired after some Christmas Paper Destruction...

And let's not forget the Queen - Tia (A Siamese Cat Mix). She will be 14 on this Saturday, January 27th. I got her when she was 6 weeks old. Hard to believe that this much time has passed...

Here is Tia inspecting the Christmas Tree

She had a sweet brother, Simi. He passed away a year and half ago. He suffered from a stroke and a month later, slipped into a coma. It was very hard for me to let go, but I knew his quality of life was no longer what it had been. He told me it was time. He will always be known as the "laptop cat" as you will see in the picture below.

Here is the best picture that I have ever taken of him. He looks so regal!

1st Blog

So... why the heck do I have a blog? I mean, what do I really have to say that anyone has any interest to hear or read about?

Well... Let me say that if you don't know by now, I am a HUGE UGA Fan! However, I really didn't come to love football until I started dating my now husband, Mr. MaconDawg! Over 7 years ago, I had not one care in the world for football! But, he explained things to me, and now, 7 years later, I can make a few play calls! I think I have impressed myself!

So aside from being completely addicted to UGA Football, I enjoy spending time with my hubby, playing with our two furkids - Sitka and Tia, cooking, reading, dancing - did I mention that I am a dance instructor (Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Pointe)? - spending time with the 4 bestest friends that anyone could ever ask for, and just being my crazy, spontaneous, adventurous self!

Well.. this is all I really have to say for right now. I will be back with some pictures of my kids :)
