Who We Are

End of the Year Miscellany

Woo, everypup and everycat, it's me - Dave.  Well, here we are - the last day in 2008.  Stormy said some of you like Huffle and Charlie and Opy are already in 2009, but I think she might just be trying to pull the Sibe fluff over my eyes.  She also said I should tie up some loose ends with this blog post, so that's what I'll do.  Not that I have to do what she says... but I will. 

Santa brought us some new real dinosaur bones.  Here's Zim from this morning, enjoying the neon green one:

Zim and one of our new real dinosaur bones

He heard that Mom was emailing with his girlfriend Sitka's mom and was going to send a picture, so he stopped working the dinosaur bone and started working the camera.

This one's for you, Sitka!

Can that guy strike a pose, or what?  Do you like how his right front arm is resting on the bone?  It takes a lot of work to make that look so casual and relaxed!

Here's a nice shot of Storm hanging out in the dining room.

Unlike Zim and me, Storm isn't much into posing for pix.  She did let Mom take this one of us together, though.  It was part of her Christmas present to Mom:
Me and Storm

Mom thinks it's a mighty fine present.  I really like that iPhone thingy she has and wanted a better look at the camera.  

Somehow, the camera went off and Mom got this picture.  Pretty cool, isn't it?  It looks like album cover art.  I'm not sure what to call my album, but if anyone has any ideas, let me know!  Maybe "Dave, Reflections on Kolache" or something.

The last bit of tying up to do ... Mom's been promising me a quilt of my own for a long time now.  She had the center panel from years and years ago - it's tiny denim squares and some "ticking" sewn together.  (Not "ticks", but "tickING".  Woo.)  She finally added some cool blue camo as borders, some high loft batting to make it poofy, and picked another blue camo for the back.  She finished quilting it yesterday!    

I came in to check it out ...

... and the next thing I knew ...


I thought she wanted a PINK camo one!  I have to admit, though, she does look mighty sweet on it.  Mom said we could all share it and that sounded like a great idea to me.  Any guesses of who spent all of last night sleeping on my new quilt?  Zim!  Ha wooooo!

One more photo, just for fun - and since so many of you liked the last one back at this post.  I think you might like this one, too!  

Just kidding!  Umm... especially if Santa is doing any recon work for next year.  Woo.

Celebrate safely tonight!

  5. That was a very nice potpourri of photos! I was wondering though, is tickING made out of squashed ticks? If so - does it make a crunching sound when you lie on it? I used to have a toy like that.
    Pee S: That's a fine looking green dino bone! I would have liked to have seen that fellow in person!

  6. We loved your photos!
    Have a very happy new year!

    Your dino bones look real yummy, especially the green one! We're also already in 2009, we're two hours ahead of Opy even :)
    Happy New Year, gang, here's to another year of blogging.

    Love, Josh and Jess

  23. Dave, you're so funny! I thought the picture of you with Stormy was really wonderful. And Zim's bone must come from a really BIG dinosaur-my mom priced those things at PetSmart, thinking of a gift for somedog (ahem) and they cost about $11 green papers each! Imagine you guys getting one APIECE! Sombody loves you lots!

    Happy New Year, my new friends, I'm sure thankful for ya!
