My MIL’s dog Snow is living here chez Bertelson for a week, attending the much adored “Club Doggie Med” while my MIL is up in NC at the cabin. (Snow is supposed to be full Maltese, but she’s huge, looks more like a Coton de Tulear or Bichon to me – prob a mix)

Anyway she is 9mths old now and still VERY much puppy and my 2 Norries think she’s the most annoying thing on the planet !! LOL but they tolerate her well enough and MUCH “fromping” goes on! (note – fromping = frequent romping)

I call them the Smores pack – since Snow is the puffy Marshmellow, Twix (the Black and Tan) is the Chocolate and Twizzler (the Red) is the Graham Cracker – perfect Smore!

) They look so durn cute on our new black leather sofa, I added the dark red soft throw rug in honor of Valentine’s day tomorrow ….. I had my FIRST date with my hubby on Valentine’s Day – *28* YEARS ago …. and I’m still madly in love with him 🙂  … even if he drive me NUTS at times!

Our dining room table is dying!! It was an old one of Nils’ parents anyway – it’s old, worn, scarred, painted and re-painted, chipped and well just plain grungy!  On top of that the chairs are falling apart too.  It’s not unusual to sit in a chair and the bar to dislodge and you sink to the floor !!

So we got a new table today – We decided NOT to get the leather chairs too because they were a dark chocolate brown and not black (which would match our new sectional sofa) so we will look for other chairs later. It is a wood base/legs with a marble top – it’s really cool to lie your face on too (it’s kinda hot here for February!!! and our AC is not on!

444 – 4 girls, 4 new haircuts, 4 new colours :)
