Holidays


Hi everybody!
I’m sorry I haven’t updated in so long.
I’ve been busy!
Check out this video my mama made for my birthday.

We went up to the lake for the 4th of July.

We found a magic cave under some rocks in the water! Shammy threw a bunch of tennis balls in there. Then we didn’t have any more tennis balls.

Shammy and Murphy played in the water, but I mostly like the land.

After Christmas comes New Years Eve!
New Year's Eve

Everybody makes lots of noise at midnight. It scares Murphy and Shammy, but I like it!
We stay up late and play games!
All in!

Then I get pretty tired.

This year mom and dad and I stayed at the cabin for a while to play in the snow and relax.

This Halloween I was the Dark Knight.
Mom and Dad helped me suit up. The human Batman had opposable thumbs! But no parents. That’s sad.
My parents aren't deeeead!

It’s official! I am one year old today!

I put my birthday hat on…

I’m one!

Hey… where’d my hat go?

What the–?!

Love you, Dad!


Ok… that’s enough hat now…

Funny Face:

Happy Birthday to me…

We celebrated my birthday a little early at the cabin, during the three-day holiday weekend!  It was a lot of fun!

Grandmom had a surprise for me:

“I’m one!” 

Me with Mom:

With Mom & scruffy Dad:

Dad, you so silly!

I can manage to look dignified wearing such a hat.  Can you?

My presents!  Aren’t they pretty?

I’m just gonna dig in, ok?

I’m glad I’ve had practive opening presents…

Me in my new UCLA jersey!  We’re number 1!

“You’re sure this isn’t too much, guys?” 

With Murphy bear:

With Shammy:

“That was a great party, Dad.” 

With my friends!

Thanks for the presents!  I had lots of fun.

We spent a great weekend at the Ranch!

It’s officially springtime, just look at these wildflowers…

They are great for romping through!

Me, near the beginning of our walk:

Me, towards the end of our walk:

Walking through the poppies…

Matt, Mom, Dad and Jenny:

With me and Shammy:

We celebrated Nani’s birthday:

Happy Birthday, Nani!

We’ll gladly help you out with your presents!

On Sunday, Grandmom and Granddad set up an egg hunt.  How many eggs can you spot?

The last egg was apparently tricky to find:

After the egg hunt, there was a treasure hunt, with clues and puzzles!

How we coming on that clue, guys?

Monty, the mountain goat

After getting all the puzzle pieces, it was time to decipher the last clue:

WOO treasure at the fish pond:

Theeeeen, there was an egg hunt for the doggies! With delicious treats!

Looks like Murphy’s got one:

Oh, and Shammy’s found one too!

Shammy the egg horder:

Happy Easter:

We also celebrated Shammy’s first birthday!

Always lots of fun at the Ranch!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Grandmom sent me a present… here’s me opening it:

HIPPO!

We spent New Year’s at the Cabin – it was my first time there!

Isn’t this great?

Me by the bear.  I sorta blend in:

Ready for a walk!

My first time playing in snow!

Barking at kids that are sledding:

I know, I’m impossibly cute:

Mmm, nature smells gooood:

This white stuff sure is cold, Dad!

Granddad, Murphy, Grandmom, Shammy, Mom, Dad and me (not paying attention):

Family portrait:

Warming up with Mama:

Man, Murphy is the best… He’s so warm and cozy:

Oh man, we’re so cute!

Ready for more walks!

Seriously guys, this snow stuff is freezing:

Fine, I will try to pose:


With Shammy in our snowsuits:

Cozy fire… cozy blanket… this is the life!

We’re enjoying the view:

When are Mom and Dad gonna wake up and come downstairs?  Maybe I should bark for them…. BARK BARK!

Hey Shammy!  Welcome to the Badger Cave III:  Revenge of the Badgers:

Aaah!  Intruders!

Ok time for a nap:

Napping with Grandmom:

Dad?  Dad?  I can’t seem to find him… (Woo WoW at the cabin)

NEW YEAR’S EVE:

Let’s party, guys!

The house is looking great:

Dad, Mom, me, Granddad, Grandmom with Shammy and the Murph:
