This week, October brings caramel Americanos and candy corn stickers from Utopia.
October also brings my dad’s birthday, which happened to fall the weekend before his first grandchild’s due date. To help Dad get ready (not that he needs it, he is very excited!) My sister and brother-in-law gave him a t-shirt that says “New Grandpa 2012.”
Brian and I gave him a long-sleeved t-shirt that says, “Grandpa. The Man. The Myth. The Legend.”
If you have ever tried to photograph children or pets, you know what a hard time I had getting two wiggly dogs to sit together for a photo. We taught Cobra (top) and Shadow (bottom) to sit and look at us when they want our attention. When I go to my parents’ house, the dogs trot over and sit as close to me as possible until I set things down and pet them. This is their “I’m sitting, aren’t you going to pet me? I haven’t had any attention all day!” expression that somehow gets them petted even when we know they have had lots of petting and attention.
