The first picture is of Ali in her cute little dress I bought her. She really doesn't mind clothes once they are on her and Bama isn't trying to chew them off her. He has NEVER liked wearing clothes, but what boy does? LOL I took this picture last night after their day of play. She was whipped and had snuggled up in Daddy's arms to take a nap.
The picture of Bama was taken just a little earlier. We get so tickled at some of the positions he gets himself into when he sleeps. He is usually stretched out between John's legs with his left hind leg cocked up on John's left leg. When he isn't snoozing like that, he's snuggled up under a blanket with me.
The pictures of them outside are from this afternoon. They were enjoying the sunshine. They LOVE lying in the sun, just like their skin momma. :) I think both of them are gorgeous animals, but Bama has always been so photogenic. Or at least to me. It's hard to tell about Ali because she is rarely ever still long enough to get a decent picture of her.
Today, Jess and Lance brought our new grandbaby over for us to meet. Oh. My. Goodness. He is an absolutely doll! Lance had been looking for a white lab, but they are very difficult to find. Jessi had told me that they'd try to call a man in Alex City who had some listed. I asked who it was, but the only name they had was "John." I didn't think anything else of it. After all, I know about 7 men named John in Alex City. It is a quite common name. (But it is one of my FAVORITE guy names. LOL) Anyway, a few days later, she sent me a text to tell me that they'd talked someone about getting one. She told me his last name, too. I TEACH WITH HIM! I didn't know that he even raised labs. They went to day to get Chipper, and he is gorgeous! He was so sweet and snuggly, too.
Don't you think Chipper looks just like his momma and his daddy? Just a cute as can be. All three of 'em. What is going to be funny is when sweet little 9 lb. Chipper is a sweet 79 lb. big boy still wanting to snuggle in Daddy's lap. :) I'm sure Lance will let him.
I have to give a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to a good friend of mine. Sheryl Gordon is a former teacher and administrator at BRHS. After retirement from education, she continued with the National Guard. Today she was officially promoted to Brigadier General of the Guard. She is the only woman in Alabama to hold this position. Quite an accomplishment! Way to go, Sheryl!
I hope everyone has a GREAT week ahead.
