I had a fun and lazy holiday weekend. It was so nice to have so much time off of work and just be able to sit and veg with the family. I have also had Montgomery for the week while his raisers were out of town. He was a perfect gentleman. Thanksgiving was fun. Keeping with tradition we got all the food ready and in ovens and then left for a movie in the morning. We went to Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium. It was a really good movie. I LOVED it! Sherman could have cared less he just slept through the whole thing. Then we went home and both boys (Montgomery and Sherman) were on tie down while we got the rest of the meal ready. I love Thanksgiving, it has to be one of my favorite holidays. Time with the family, and food galore, what more can you ask for. :) After my part of the meal was done. (I was in charge of mashed potatoes) I took the boys out in the yard for a good romp. They both really enjoyed themselves. We went inside and they boys had to go in the kennel to be out of the way while we all ate. My sister got Yams (baby food) for my nephew for his Thanksgiving dinner. Which he did not enjoy and promptly spit out. Cannon also got the turkey leg because every year we give it to the youngest in the family. He just thought it was a fun toy and didn't eat it. :) After dinner me and three of my sisters took Sherman and Montgomery on a walk. We stopped by a park and played for a bit. After the walk we went to my grandmas for desert. It was good. We had bread pudding and pumpkin cheesecake. De-lish!
Then on Saturday the football game was on so me and all the girls in the family went out for a girls day while my dad and bro-in-law went to the game. BYU WON!!! Anyway, we went shopping and then out to lunch followed by more shopping. I have decided that Sherman is not a huge shopper he gets bored. :) He needs to go to a little old lady and have a nice relaxed life. :) Somehow I don't see Sherman braving the streets of New York or being a college dog. He would be perfect for a little old lady who sits at home and goes on the occasional walk to the store or something. :) Sherm would love that. We also went to see the show Enchanted. I have not been in a movie theatre with that many kids in a long, long time but it was a really cute movie. The first 20 or so minutes I spend wondering what the heck was I watching but then it got cute. Montgomery left yesterday afternoon. I really like that dog. He is very sweet, and happy and really reminded me of Prudy a lot. Oh, and he is Shermans cousin. Their moms are sisters, so that is cool too.
Anyway, here are pictures of our weekend.
Montgomery in the backyard, stopped running just long enough for me to snap a picture.
The boys enjoy their bones on Thanksgiving day.
Good-night puppies. (I had to break out the second kennel for Montgomery's visit, Sherman wasn't to pleased that he had to be in the smaller one, "Face it Sherman, you are a small fry!" Oh I got Sherman weighed last week and he is in the fifties!!! 51.9 pounds. I am so proud. *sniff*
"I did not like that!" I love his face in this picture. (Isn't my nephew just the cutest!)
They boys out front before their walk. They don't seem to have a family resemblance. . . I am sure it is there somewhere. (they are only 2 weeks apart too, Montgomery is humongous.)
Sherman in the slide. Talk about posing, wow.
