Has Anyone Seen My Packing Tape?

Thank God It’s Friday!  That means that Daddy will be home all weekend and I get to play with him! 

But Mommy is busy too, she is taking care of their eBay orders and wrapping them up with care in bubble wrap, while I…… steal her packing tape!  Heck, it was just sitting there on the floor, calling to me…. “Nikita come get me!” and I could not take it any longer, so I snuck over when Mommy was not looking and snagged that roll of pure heaven up in my mouth and…. RAN down the hallway! 

Well, unfortunately for me, when Mommy saw me high-tail it down the hall, she knew I had something – she always knows!  So, what did Mommy do next?  She never scolds me for my ingenious ways of play, but rather she runs for her camera to catch me in the action!  She snapped these extremely “bad for my reputation” photos so I could not get out of this one – I was busted!  I guess I will have to resort back to chewing on Teddy and trying to pull his plastic eye off!

Mommy is just standing there, laughing at me.  She finished her package for shipping, (now that she has her tape back) and now I get to wait for my favorite guys in brown to arrive – the UPS man!

Present for Grandma

Shhhhh, don’t tell Grandma, but we made her something for Halloween!  Since Mommy has been busy cutting & sanding tombstones for Halloween, she thought it would be a nice surprise for Grandma if we made her one as a surprise.  What do you think? 

Daddy & Mommy found some nice wood numbers & embellishments at Pat Catans craft store to put on the tombstone.  Mommy even cut out the little bat that’s on top of the tombstone from some scrap pressed wood, and painted them.  They are going to spray the address number & little ghost with some Krylon Glowz spray paint too.  The Glowz paint is supposed to charge in light so that it will illuminate at night.  Pretty cool, eh? 

If you want one for yourself, let us know!  Daddy & Mommy have their tombstones for sale on eBay, but they can personalize one for you too!

Just don’t tell Grandma about her present – just keep it between us!

I’ve Been a Good Girl

I'm tall enough to see out the window now!

Hey everyone, it’s me, Nikita!  I have been busy since the last time I posted something on my blog.  I still chase leaves in the yard, even though Mommy keeps cleaning them all up, I found out too that I am now tall enough to look out the window to see the BIG huge world.  I bark now at the dogs walking by, just want them to know that I am on duty! 

It only took me a week to learn my name and how to sit on command, but coaxing me with treats to do so helps. (it is always appreciated)  It’s been about a week that I haven’t had an accident in the house either (Mommy is happy about that) and I now whine by the back door when I want to go outside.  (phew)  Heck, if that is all that I had to do was whine by the back door to go chase leaves, I would have done this a lot earlier!  (silly leaves) 

Me and my new Hedgehog toy from Grandma

My nice Grandma visits me often and when she does, she brings me a new toy!  (Thanks Grandma – I love you)  Here is a photo of me and my new toy from Grandma.  Mommy might have to sew the nose back on my Hog because I kinda chewed it off a bit, sorry Mommy. 

I also help my Mommy get the eBay packages ready for shipment! (I don’t think that Mommy likes it when I try chewing on the boxes though).  Mommy & Daddy also have a neat website at www.themesnthings.com and they sell all kinds of unique Seasonal items for Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and 4th of July.  Both Daddy and Mommy are really big into Halloween, and some of their props scare me, so I try to stay away from those things because some of them talk too! (yikes) 

Well, that’s it for today because it is time for me to take a nap! (I love naps) But I did hear that Mommy & Daddy are trying to figure out what I should be on Halloween…what do you think? 

Until tomorrow,
