And here we go, into the New Year! It's really started out great for us. Ian is loving work, and I started teaching Zumba as an instructor. (Which I also love!)
We also had Ian's parents here visiting last weekend! It was a blast! Mark was asked to tie flies at a Fly Fishing Expo here in Boise, so they stayed with us and we got to spend some time with them. It was perfect timing because it just happened to land on one of Ian's 4 day weekends.
We did some shopping... (A Mattress for us for our NEW BEDROOM SET!! WOOT! More on that later.) and ALOT of football watching.
And Frank sometimes forgets how big he is and has a seat wherever he wants... this time it was on Marilyn.
We also got to have some fun with our little Sunbeamers at a Primary Activity.
Ian and I got complete wardrobe makeovers, courtesy of our little 3 year olds.....
I am thinking of hiring one of them as my personal shopper.
Frank has continued to shed full size dogs and its a mess. We recently found out that the reason it is so bad is because he is not only losing his summer fur but also his puppy fur. They say that after this year, it won't be so bad... PLEASE BLESS!!
Don't worry. This was a one sitting brushing....
The weather here has recently been really nice! 40's and 50's... Take THAT Utah! Neener Neener!
And since it has been so nice, Frank and I decided to take advantage and took a walk in our most favorite park ever!
Ok, so now the exciting news....
Behold our bedroom set!!!
Isn't it a beaut!?
(Please excuse the photos above the bed...we (Ian) hasn't had a chance to move them yet.)
They delivered it yesterday. I was so excited and jumped right into putting our bedspread on it and transferring all our clothes to the new drawers... Yippee!!
And Frank is already a fan...
The bed is obviously not too high for him to jump onto.
Frank also had a bit of an incident yesterday.
Little man decided to pay homage to Popeye...
I had just finished setting up our bedroom with our new furniture when I came downstairs to find Franklin with a big ol' swollen eye. Poor guy. I panicked, of course, and immediately called the vet. Turns out the little dude either had allergies from the dust kicked up from the furniture. (The new stuff was completely dusty... probably sat in a warehouse somewhere.) Or his bottom lashes were growing straight up and were irritating his top lid. The doc plucked those lashes and gave him some allergy meds and not 2 hours later he was as good as new!
We did find out though, that our little Popeye sailor is 70 lbs. Guess I should stop calling him "little man".
*cough* fatty *cough*
He is a lot of fun though. I don't know how many times I've said that I would't know what to do with myself here in Boise if I didn't have the Frank while Ian worked.
Does this not apply to us or what?!.....
We love you all! Hope everything is going well with you and your family's! Please keep us updated about your lives and stay in touch!
And like Marty Stouffer used to say...
"And until next time.... Enjoy your Wild America."
