It seems that Blogger finally fixed the problem with uploads. At least for now. I had not exceeded their "free" limit, but understand that I would have had no problem paying five bucks to them. But only if I could send cash with no identifying information. And apparently that is not possible.
I hope all of you had a most excellent holiday season. We certainly did. The girls always love extra hands available to pet them.
Ellie opens a present while Lucy observes.
For some reason Ellie has been designated to open everything.
It's a wonderful ball that makes all sorts of animal sounds.
Ellie just loved it and carried it around carefully.
Lucy got a ball that lights up with motion.
They took the toys to one of their beds. Ellie guards her ball while looking at the light from Lucy's.
Ellie kept her ball between her paws, moving it whenever it stopped making noise.
Lucy nudged hers with her nose to make it blink over and over.
These balls will require supervision because of their small size, but we will definitely give them play opportunities. Surprisingly, Lucy has not picked up the talking ball although Ellie tried the blinking one.
Here we are beginning another year. I remember thinking as a child that I would be far too old to enjoy the year 2000. I'm so glad I was wrong.
The Friday quote is from Abraham Lincoln:
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other."
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!!
