Happy Thanksgiving....

Hi, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. If you remember, last year I was too little to understand. Now that I'm big, I'm aware of what a holiday is.

I've been laying under the chair listening to my parents talk about Thanksgiving. I heard my Mom saying to my Dad, "I've got to get the pies to take to Nancy's". So evidently, we're going to my Aunts house for pie........ then Mom was saying it was her favorite holiday and meal. Didn't take me long to understand what that meant... were going for a big meal. Things were going along pretty well until my mother sighed and said "there goes the 7 lbs I just lost". Hmmm, I get blamed for everything around here, I hope they don't think I took the lbs.

I hope you all have some Thanksgiving plans to go to your Aunts house for pie and a meal. Sounds great to me.....  Have a safe holiday.

Today was the first snow of the season.

I don't remember much about the snow from last year, I was born in August so when it snowed I was only about 12 weeks.  WOW - white, fluffy and cold on my paws.

Mom got me all dressed up in my new sweater and Dad took me down. I tinkled on the tree, turned around and headed up the stairs. Not liking snow. Dad wasn't happy, he said it took me longer to get dressed then it did to do only half my business. Guess who took me out 15 minutes Mom. She bundled me up again and took me out. She just had surgery and isn't exactly suppose to be doing three sets of stair but for me, she did. We went slowly and then she found me a place where the snow wasn't as deep on my paws. I did my thing and we headed in going very slowly and carefully. I love my Mom, she's always willing to help me out.

Tomorrow if I go out, I'll have Mom take a picture of me in my sweater in the snow. You saw the sweater in a post a while ago... but not with me really enjoying the warmth.

I hope you're all warm and snuggly...according to my parents, this is just the beginning.

Quilting terms and phrases...

Mom and I have been spending alot of time together quilting. I'm really starting to understand the terms and phrases that quilters use. However, some I'm still not quite sure of.

Today, Mom was mumbling something about taking her quilt to Auntie Patti's house -  because she has a long arm. That's strange, I know for a fact that her arms are the same size, she's held me lots and they're both about 26" from armpit to finger tip. I have no idea what the length of your arms have to do with quilting... but evidently having a long one is good.

This one I'm sure of - when a quilter says "Oh Crap, I lost my points" That has something to do with Weight Watchers.

The last one I heard was when Mom was referring to Auntie Patti again... she said "Hmmm, this will quilt out". That means something isn't right and she's counting on the quilting to make it look good.
Must be that arm thing again.

That's all I have for today, we still have alot of quilting to do so I'm sure I'll learn a few more. Do you think Ricky Tims started by quilting with his Mom and learning the terms and phrases???

Quality time with my Mom

Dad went hunting this morning. I'm not really sure what that means. Usually he's hunting around here for his keys or a sock, no idea why he had to go away to hunt.  But that's OK with me, it just means more quality time with Mom.

I think the plan is sewing. Now I don't sew, but I am the helper. I lay under the table and eat all the thread that falls onto the carpet. By the time Mom's done she doesn't have to vacuum because - "Me" the helper cleaned it all up.

I should get treats for that..... Qua
