Pictures of the Week 2008

Naughty or nice?
"I hear hoofprints on the roof.
Was I naughty or nice this year?"

Razz! Razz! Razz! Razz!
Razz! Razz! Razz! Razz!

Seattle got 6-8 inches of snow today.
Razz was having a ball!

Maxx and a tea kettle
When I walked into the kitchen this morning and saw Maxx sitting under this silhouette,
I had to sneak quietly away and get my camera. With the warm sun pouring in the kitchen window,
you'd never know it was cold and snowy outside (a double rarety for Seattle).

Luna's puppy "Jazz" went to his new home last weekend.
