Sydney Stories!

Story #1
The Scary Snowman

The other night, after the first winter blast hit our neighborhood, we decided to go for a walk. You know, get out and enjoy the freshly fallen snow. So we did! Ryan and I bundled up for the winter weather, hooked up the dog to her leash and headed out.  It was a great walk.  I love to see our neighborhood covered in snow and the Christmas lights look especially beautiful.  On the way home we walked past a cute house.  No Christmas lights but it must have been the home of children (or at least kids at heart), because there was a snowman in the front yard.  As we approached the yard Sydney moved to the other side of me and slowed down.  We got closer to the snowman and she slowed way down.  Holy Cow!  My dog is afraid of a snowman!!!  So I did what any good dog owner would do, we walked right up to the snow man.  :o)  Sydney stayed at the end of her leash.  As we got to the scary snowman her head went down and she barked at it!  In her defense it was a pretty ugly snowman!

Story #2
The Yummy Cookies

A few weeks ago I attempted to back some yummy cookie press cookies to give away.  They didn't turn out so good.  They tasted okay but every single cookie broke when I tried to take them off of the cookie sheet.  So the cookie pieces went into a bowl and onto a plate for us to eat, instead of into pretty packages.  A day or so later Ryan and I took a trip to the outlet stores.  When we got home, we noticed something funny on the kitchen floor.  It was the bowl and plate.  They had been sitting on the kitchen table full of cookies.  Now they were sitting on the floor completely empty.  Our sweet little puppy dog some how pulled the dishes off the table and ate every single cookie!!!  I'm still not sure how she got them down without breaking them.  :o)
