Three Weeks Old and Into Trouble...

  With a capital T!  I had hoped to have these little monsters living outside by now, but the weather all the sudden realized that it's December and began acting accordingly!  Confounded weather.

Bilbo.  I love the look on his face.


It's my Rosie baby!  She tried to lick the tree.

Bullroarer.  This kid is a bully.



Elanor.  She was scared of the tree.

I'm Officially in Love...

  I totally love this song.  I'm officially in love with Musical Theatre.  It's sooooooo cool!! 

  So, as you may have guessed by now, my first real musical was the 2017 Disney's Newsies the Broadway Musical.  Oh man!  I first learned about Newsies about 2 years ago I think.  A friend and I were trying to find something for a movie night (the kind where you're 4 hours apart so you watch the same thing at that the same time) and she asked if I had Newsies so I looked it up and thought it looked interesting.  Then somewhere here in the blogging world, I read a post where someone and her sister (sorry, I don't remember who) had gone to see the musical live and was raving about how Jeremy Jordan makes the best Jack Kelly (AMEN girl!!) and her post upped my interest a bit.  Then when I saw it was coming to Netflix, I was pretty excited but other things showed up that I was finding more interesting so I kept pushing it further down the 'To Watch' line.

  Then.....I'd been watching the CW show Supergirl and Winn is just a hoot.  And I also have a bad habit of skipping around and watching random episodes of the CW superhero shows, so I watched the Flash/Supergirl crossover where Kara and Barry are in a musical.  And I noticed and commented on Winn/Grady's amazing voice.  Then I was watching a 'behind the scenes' for that episode and saw that Winn is played by Jeremy Jordan.  I think I knew that, but I just wasn't remembering, anyway, the next day I went straight for Newsies and completely ADORED it!!

  So now I'm totally in love with musicals and I need to find another one to watch.  I mean, I've seen several musical movies, but it's not the same. 

  What are some musicals you all recommend?  Please tell me!!  I need more!!

  And some sad news, Belladonna died yesterday.

Let it Snow and Two Weeks Old

  Happy December!!  We woke up to snow this morning, FINALLY!!  We had the warmest November I can remember and the fact that we didn't have any snow was annoying!  And the puppies eyes are open!!!  They are so cute and snugly and adorable!  I didn't stage their pictures this time, the kids had them upstairs on a blanket for cuddling, so I just snapped pictures there.

Age: One Week

  Hey all of my friends who love my puppies, here are their One Week pictures!  Sorry 'bout the bad lightning.



The patches of white on the belly is the only way to tell Elanor, Belladonna and Diamond apart.  Elanor has the biggest white patch.




Bella just has a eeny weeny white patch.  Actually two, but she didn't like being on her back for pictures.


Di loves being on her back and having her belly rubbed.

She grunts like a little pig when you rub her belly.

My Rosie

Bullroarer.  He tried to eat my dress yesterday when he smelled bacon on it.
