Merry Christmas!
Love, Geno

Yummy! A Dingo and a squeaky toy from Mary!
What more could a pup need?

What a morning! Geno decided to take a snooze with his new friend

Geno thought that it would be fun to jump into a box,
but then he couldn't get out of it.
What a dummy.

Baby G

Poor little Geno had his surgery today. We dropped him off this morning at 8:30 and weren't able to pick him up until 4:30. We got the last of our Christmas shopping done and worried about him the whole day. Here are some pictures since we got him home...

He's wearing a backwards tshirt of his mother's so he can't lick his stitches. He's been sleeping in this spot since we got home.

It's been a while since I have posted... sorry :(

I can't believe that Christmas is right around the corner. I have been pretty busy with school as well as trying to get my shopping done. Dean and I are dropping Geno off at the vet Monday morning and spending the day finishing our shopping-- maybe a wrap-fest that night... we'll see.

Only 2 more days in 3rd grade. It's gone okay. There are definitely some interesting children that's for sure. Back to day-to-day subbing in January which isn't fun at all. It's been nice being in one place and getting to know everyone in the building.

Tonight, we watched "Christmas Vacation." I absolutely love that movie. I was laughing hard throughout the whole thing. Chevy Chase is a riot.

It's bed time. I need to get better at this whole blogging thing. g'night

tree, haircut, third grade

That pretty much sums up the past few days. On Sunday, we went to cut down a Christmas tree. Geno came along. It was sleeting and cold the whole time. Mary found a good tree for us and even fought a 37-year old man for it. Thanks for winning us the tree Mare!!! Geno wore a shirt that said "Santa's Little Helper" in an attempt to keep him warm. By the end of our excursion, Geno was wet, filthy and freezing. All in good fun.

Geno was in dire need of a visit to the groomer. He went on Monday and came out looking so darn cute! Dean and I dropped him off and there was a puppy there for sale. He was adorable and I wanted him. He was the only one left from his litter so I felt bad for him. When we went to pick Geno up, the little guy had been sold. Geno has since been walking around very proud of his new haircut. They even sent him home with a bandana that had snowmen on it. (P.S. Geno will be losing his "manhood" on December 22nd. Wish him luck!)

cute puppppppy

Schools in Pennsylvania believe that the first day of deer hunting season is a holiday and the kids do not have school. I have been substitute teaching in Dean's sister Allison's classroom this week and will be until Christmas break. She teaches third grade at a local elementary school. Unfortunately, she had to have foot surgery Monday of this week. I since then have taken over in the classroom. She will be out for the remainder of December so I will have three solid weeks in the same classroom. This is nice to have some stability with my job. Instead of waiting by the phone to see if I will be working the next day or not. It has definitely been an interesting past couple of days, but I'm enjoying it and glad I have this opportunity. I'll be letting you know how it goes...
