Loving the snow.
We went sledding yesterday! I even went down the hill with Gracie on our old Flexible Flyer sled, which, by the way, was the fastest sled on the hill. Soooo funny – Laurence wouldn’t go on it because it was so old looking. Well, Gracie had no problem with this and off she went. Plus, it has a long rope on it so Larry could pull it and then whip her down the hill. Once Laurence saw the speed and control, he said, “Gracie, can I have a turn on that one???” Ha ha ha.
Before sledding we went up to Jeanie’s so that Finn & Lexie could play. They were more evenly matched yesterday than on Christmas. On Christmas, Lexie kicked Finn’s ass. Finn had been away from the pack for a month and Lexie had just left her four other brothers. Finn took a beating. Not yesterday. They actually played really well. We visited with my niece and her new fiance – they set a date! August 13th is the wedding. We’re all so excited, it’s just wonderful. It’s funny how my faith can go up and down – I question when things go wrong and then am so extremely grateful when things are good. Things are good right now.
We have a dog trainer coming today. We have a two hour session and I hope that this will help us all get on the same page with Finn’s training. Whipser away trainer!! Otherwise, our mission is to go out and get Finn a coat or sweater. It’s just a bit too cold for him outside right now. He’s such a wee thing. We have a few other things to pick up too. Tonight is another party. I really enjoy this one. It’s at Larry’s cousins and we see a lot of people we don’t normally see. It’s very cozy and relaxed. Plus, Sandralee & Pete were invited this year, so that is an added bonus!
