October 5, 2010

White Dog and Quinn gave cuddles and kisses and sent Tesla's, Hansel's, and Benny's parents back to them in Maryland. It was suddenly very quiet and lonely in the house. All that was left of our incredible week was the arm of a gift stuffie.

Prinnie and her family brought long legged stuffies for White Dog and The Other White Dog which were perfect for playing tug and for swinging in the "kill it" dance. Both the elephant and the duck were quite popular during the Balloon Fiesta Pup Party and were enjoyed until both had been rendered limbless, decapitated, and destuffed. All that remained was duck's yellow arm, handless and pulled from the torso...which now is tossed like a banana football and still enjoyed with gusto.

WD, TOWD and I settled into a post party funk (even Steve was back to work)...but not for long. Michael came bursting through the door after school with news that brought the party back to life and sparked an unexpected celebratory dinner...he made the Honor Roll with his first quarter grades...in regular classes...mostly As and Bs! We only wish that everyone was still here to join in the hurrahs.

My BFF, I TOLD my sister to stop pulling so hard and "killing" the toys that I PERSONALLY picked out for you and your brother!!! Sorry she killed your monkey and elephant clown dead!!! I am going to take her to the store, again, to buy you new ones, but I promise I won't let her decapitate and dearm them!!!

Would you please tell Michael that me and my entire family are SOOOOO proud of him?? Way to go Michael!
