Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

We received this card in the mail from some friends who said they thought of us when they saw it (I wonder why). Inside, they asked which of our dogs was the angel and which was the devil. I definitely have opinions on this, but what would you guys guess? Thanks Tarren and Erin (who are apparently secretly reading this blog but never commenting, because somehow they knew we had a golfer and a Tinkerbell for Halloween).

And my sad little pumpkin I carved in 5 minutes this evening. We hollowed our pumpkins out on Sunday so Jason could make pumpkin seeds, but we never got around to carving them. In case you can’t tell, this is a cat pumpkin. I really wanted to make a pug, but it seemed a little too complicated.

Happy Halloween! Hope you all get lots of candy!

Today we had some pug fun! The Denver Pug Club hosted “Pug-o-Ween” today, and we went! It was SO fun and there were SO MANY funny pugs in great costumes. Here are just a few of the many……..

Lobster pug

The boxing pug

VERY cute–a devil and an angel

This one was very cute–his mom was dressed as a pirate, and he was a parrot!

A turkey

A mermaid and a fisherman

Another golfer

This was was my FAVORITE! She is Marie Antoinette!

And of course, the cutest Tinkerbell ever! Daisy won 5th place in the “cutest” costume category! (Moxie and Oscar were there, too, but it was hard to get a good picture of them!)

We had a really fun weekend and have a full, fun week ahead of us!

Guess who’s here?

Daisy’s best friend, Moxie, is here with us for a few days while her parents are out of town. All three pugs are having a blast! They decided this morning at 2:30 it was time to play–ugh!

Sad Day

Today was a sad day in the Stephens’ family. We didn’t get World Series tickets. They actually went on sale yesterday, but the site was “maliciously attacked” so very few tickets were sold before they suspended the sale yesterday. Tickets went back on sale today, but there was no getting through (for us). We tried and tried to no avail.

The really sad part of the story–on Monday, Jason was actually able to get through and pick his seats, but when he went to check out, he was kicked out of the site. And they were great seats! We were so, so close.

I do have one gripe about the situation. The tickets were only for sale online and were first come, first serve. But it seems to me that MANY of the people who purchased tickets bought them so they could turn around and sell them to make a quick buck. What about the local fans? I am not about to go on ebay or Craig’s list and pay thousands of dollars for tickets. So I guess we will just watch from home. Or maybe I will boycott.

Another sad thing–I can no longer get on blogger at work. I can’t update, and I can’t check any other blogs.

Bah humbug.

Weird Weekend Weather

This weekend in Colorado, the weather was a little bizarre. Saturday was warm and sunny with a high of 80 degrees, and today we woke up to snow and a high in the 30’s. Crazy! It was our first snow of the season, and we received an inch or two of snow. But because it has been so warm, it quickly melted and is mostly just on the grass now. This picture was taken this morning shortly after the snow started coming down.

Tomorrow is the day we try to get World Series tickets. We’ll see how it goes!

Halloween Fun!

Last night, I decided to have a photo shoot with the pugs modeling their Halloween costumes.

Daisy is Tinkerbell! (She doesn’t mind the dress but she does not like the wings)

And Oscar is a golfer (which he hates! Actually, he doesn’t mind the jacket, but the pants and the hat really bother him)

I found these doggie costumes at Target–they really have a good variety of costumes for doggies, and they actually fit well (and it’s hard to find well-fitting clothing for pugs!). I couldn’t make anything like this in a million years!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I am joining my first book club, and I need your help! I am planning to join a book club where we will revisit many of the classics (books we may have read in school but don’t remember or didn’t appreciate). Do any of you have any suggestions of classic books that might be good to include? I am to take a few suggestions to our first meeting, so let me know if you have any ideas. I have a few in mind, but I wanted to see what you might suggest. Thanks so much!
