A Year in Pictures: Day 120

We spent some time in the yard raking moss and killing weeds. Then it was homework and cleaning out the turtle tank. Stout managed to get dirty and probably needs another bath too. Maybe tomorrow night ;-)

I had to share a pic of the new vacuum. I just love it! It sucks up everything!!

A Year in Pictures: Day 112

We had a very productive day. For some reason we were awake at 6:30. So we got up and took all of the cardboard to the high school that was having a recycling event. We then spent most of the day in the yard working. Stout had fun being outside all day and now is fast asleep. My parents stopped by to drop off their trailer so we can load it with all of the yard stuff. Here is a picture of some leaf bags. Just got a few hundred more to go :)

A Year in Pictures: Day 110

Well today Stout and I stayed home. Stout kept us awake last night with his hacking. We went back to the vet today and he now has medication. Should be back to normal in a few days but will have to miss puppy class next week. Last night I told him to go to bed and this is where he decided his bed was...

A Year in Pictures: Day 109

Today has been very long!! Stout and I had an unexpected trip to the vet but all is good for now. When I got home and grabbed the mail and found this...

For those who don't know this isn't my last name

It came from our realtor. I'm not sure how this happened. She use to list both of our emails under my name but now I guess my last name got changed. I thought the postcard would have both are names or just Mr. J's but I guess using my first name and Mr. J's last name counted as addressing it to both of us. 

A Year in Pictures: Day 108

We went to puppy for class tonight and learned how to walk on a leash without pulling!!! Now Stout is passed out while I do homework.

A Year in Pictures: Day 107

Today I subbed and got to challenge my tech skills by using an overhead projector. I can now say that I have used one in my teaching career.

A Stout update he stayed in his playpen today and wanted to cuddle with me this evening.

Making it hard to get homework done

A Year in Pictures: Day 106

Spent the day in class and then came home for a little yard work. Mr. J cut down a tree for me and some branches off another one. Then my parents came over to once more work on Stout's pen. If he can get out of that I have no idea what we will do with him.

A Year in Pictures: Day 104

Stout had is last round of shots today and weighed in at 20lbs. We also did a trip to Costco and then my cousin came over with her dog. Now the two are sleeping after playing. No pic of them yet. Maybe they will hold still long enough to get one later. But look what was built under our deck.

A Year in Pictures: Day 99

Happy Easter! We had brunch at my parents' house and then we watched some racing. Well actually Mr. J watched racing and Stout and I took a nap. We then enjoyed some sunshine and BBQ. Now to enjoy a week off from teaching and starting the last quarter of grad school.

Stout grabbed Mr. J's glove but decided to sleep with it instead of chewing it.

A Year in Pictures: Day 98

Today was so nice we did some work outside. But at one point I went to make Mr.J's Easter present (click to see the present). Well I had left Stout out in the yard so I decided to peek out the window to see how he was doing and this is what I saw...

Mr. J sitting outside with Stout

Beer Bunnies

So for Easter I made Mr. J some Beer Bunnies. I saw this on another blog Kindergarten Smiles  the teacher had received a gift of diet coke bunnies from a student. I liked it but wanted to make it for Mr. J. So I got his favorite beer and got out the hot glue gun.

6-pack of beer

I know hard to see but I used white pipe cleaners, googlie eyes and pink pom-poms

I first glued all of the eyes on
I then added the pink pom-poms
 I cute up a pipe cleaners for the whiskers and attached them.
I used one pipe cleaner to make a set of ears. I cute the pipe cleaner in half and then twisted the bottom together to make it look like ears.
I glued the ears to the back of the cap.
Here is a pic with both ears attached.
Here they are all done.
Here they are with a little grass.

Now to put them in the fridge to enjoy later :-)
