Dog Photos

A couple of weeks ago I took some great pictures of our dog Spurgeon. Thought y'all might like to see them :)

In case anyone is wondering--he is a Great Pyrenees. Look at all that hair!

He Looks like a lion. :)

Yesterday it snowed for the first time this year! We got about four or five inches, so we were really excited! There wasn't enough to build a snowman, but we still had fun playing outside :)

We took these cute little penguins to a New Years Eve party. They are so fun to make, and not very hard to do if you do it right the first time :)

All you need are large and small olives, carrots, cream cheese, and toothpicks.

You take a large olive and fill it with cream cheese. I uses my fingers.

Then you cut a slice of carrot and cut a triangle out of it. Next you take a small olive, cut a slit in it and stuff the triangle of carrot into it. Lining it all up the way you want it, you stick a toothpick through it all. You use the carrot with a triangle out of it for feet.

Then your done! Not only are they cute, but they taste good as well. (That is if you like olives) :) Mama made an igloo out of a big cream cheese ball and we put them around it. I hope you try it!
