I had a fun weekend at my parents house, and spent a lot of quality time with Dad for Fathers's Day. Love being able to drive home so easily!! And with such a beautiful drive-my most favorite one.

Seawaters, I finally got some photos of Mom wearing the Yorkie/Jazzie necklace I had made for her for Mother's Day! She loves it!!

She scratched to get out of the bedroom, so I opened up the door for her. She nudged open the door to my parents bedroom, and went in there for comfort. They slept through it, but Jazzie didn't! She was hiding under the bed =] They played for a bit in the living room, got frightened again, then they both came and wanted to get into bed with me! It was quite an interesting night. Anyways, here's a cute pic of a curious Harlowe looking out the window!

I am going to JP's school for a little program at noon, he is so excited I am going because it always seems I am working when these things go on.

I hope you all are having a good day.

Believe it or not, but it is a gray day here, too!!! I am going to light my pumpkin spice candle while I work!

Have a great day, everyone!
