Holidays!...and a crabby lobster

I absolutely love the holiday season. Like, LOVE it. It's just so sad that Ryan doesn't share the sentiment. I hope to change that one day. Maybe once we have kids and he can see how magical it can be for them to become wrapped up in cute sweaters and go Trick-or-Treating and carve pumpkins and eat turkey and share what they are thankful for...maybe THEN he'll start to love it as much as I do.

Until then...

Ryan had to work on Halloween so I was home with Kayleigh and Tara was in town visiting. We ordered pizza (Watkins tradition on Halloween and Christmas Eve) and handed out candy to the..oh, maybe 5 kids that knocked on the door.

Our poor little dog has to suffer and be like a kid..yes, I am pathetic...I put our puppy in a costume...

I vowed I'd never be one of those people, as did Ryan, but the poor guy shivers and needs coats...the costume was just a step too far.

He demolished the leg pieces already but we have the head part still. He's supposed to be a lobster...it's rather pathetic


And this was about 3 minutes after we put it on him...it didn't last too long...

HAHAHA - mike isn't big on holidays either... he doesn't want to decorate the house or listen to carols all day long... he'll learn to deal though!!

Oh, and my mom and I bought reindeer ears (dollar store) for Pat's dog (my parent's 1st grandpet and their new obsession) just to see him (Pat) freak out. His dog Phyllis didn't mind it, but it really set Pat off as he doesn't want to own a dog that wears antlers... haha, good times!

ALSO - love the blog, adorable and seriously, I love reading ppl's stuff and hearing how you're doing.
