shiny!

monday was chilly and a perfect hearth day so jon loaded up the fireplace for our first fire of the year and we enjoyed the warmth and flames the rest of the day…jasper was very well-behaved while the fire was bright and shiny but once jon let it die down and shut the glass doors, she kept climbing up to rub and sit against said glass doors – i guess she liked the feel of the residual warmth in the glass?

jasper lilith learned “HOT!” over the thanksgiving break…we had either fireplaces roaring or pot bellied stoves radiating between all the houses we went to and luckily, she seemed to catch on pretty quick about the not touching rule…i think jon and i are going to fireplace it up this winter so we can really pound in the lesson…oh, the sacrifices we make, right 🙂

thanksgivingness…

well, shame on me!  i had plenty of photo opportunities from thursday on and i missed most of them!  jasper with grandparents, jasper with us, jasper with dogs (oy, all the dogs!), jasper with aunts and uncles, just tons of darling jasper kodak moments that i was too busy to snap…i will make it up at christmas 🙂

we spent thanksgiving day with mom, richard and a house full of family, children and dogs…mom, thank god you bought the bigger house!!  we had a great time with everyone there and jasper had several children close to her age to run around with – and run she did!  she ran around with tigger and heidi (mom’s dogs) like they were her own personal play toys – they were wonderful with her and it was fun watching her love on them…

here is one of our basenjis, roan, wondering what this little person is doing on his bed…or maybe he is licking pumpkin pie off her face…

then we went over to natchitoches for the thanksgiving weekend to visit arnetta, pop, louis and susan (who flew down from virginia)…had a wonderful time there too – again, plenty of photo opportunities long gone…jasper discovered fireplace popcorn and guitars…her uncle louis had her captivated with his guitar playing – she was quite the audience of one, wasn’t she?

the drive home was no fun at all though – she was grumpy, the dogs were grumpy and neither of those things made for a fun trip back…this was jasper at her most peaceful hour…
