I have gotten all the holiday cards scanned in and posted at Flickr. You can see the album here, or scroll through them below.
(I went and added the above to the post for Christmas Day, too, so that next year we’ll know where to find it!)
Those are the cards I’ve received thus far – I’m sure there are more cards waiting for me at the post office, and when I get them (I’m planning to go up there today), I’ll add them to that album.
THANK YOU, everyone who sent a card. You send the MOST beautiful, creative cards with the most thoughtful sentiments inside. You are THE BEST!
Dustin – or whatever his name is – thanks you all for your enthusiastic approval of his addition to the permanent resident roster.
For the time being we’re going to stick with the routine we’ve had with him for the past couple of weeks – Dustin will have the run of the house during the night, and will stay upstairs during the day. He’s 9 months old, and I’d like to put off the time where he discovers the back yard for at least a few months. I’m not sure that’ll be possible, but at least for now he doesn’t seem to mind the routine.
Jake is having a LOT of fun with Dustin – he likes to chase Dustin through the house. They thunder up the hall and across my room, then Dustin FLIES up to the top of the cat tree and sits there looking smug while Jake flops onto the floor. They rest for a few minutes and then Jake runs off with Dustin right behind. That’s what they were doing at 1 am the other morning, anyway – I suspect it happens more often than I know, since I sleep through pretty much anything these days.
We are closing in on a name, but haven’t decided for sure. We’ve mostly decided on Boudreau, I guess. For a brief shining moment yesterday I thought we were going to name him Tater Boudreau, but then Fred decided he didn’t like that, so. Boudreau on its own is… sigh. Fine. (But it lacks depth, in my opinion.)
Poor Dennis. If he wasn’t such a perfect (and perfectly gorgeous) little model, I wouldn’t hat him so often. But I can’t help it – look at that gorgeous boy!
