Ladybird has wanted a lot of contact over the past three days...baby wearing to the rescue!!!
When I first brought Ladybird home, DG was very scared of her. She would run and hide if I even showed the puppy to her! Obviously that has now changed, and DG's natural curiosity is winning out. It looks like these two might soon be the best of friends!

It rained ice last night and is still doing it. Everything is encased with a layer of it, making this look like the Disney movie "Frozen". One lone duck ventured out today. He's the courageous (simple?) one. This is Meaner's world. He is the brave king of the porch, barn, and garage...As long as Bessie … Continue reading Icy day
It's 2 a.m., and I heard weird crunching noises so I got up to investigate. That's not mud on her paws!!! It's brown marker!!! The floor is cleaned (bless you Crayola for making them washable on laminate flooring). She's going to have to wait until tomorrow. Geez!!!
