Dog Day Afternoon

Yep, another day at the Mackay homestead. My agenda for the day is, Let the dogs out, let the dogs in, let the dogs out, let the dogs in, and in between each entrance is a 8 foot wipe. What it boils down to till the summer time is wiping 56 little feet a day. Geez... forgot about all that. hehehe

Dad just loves the new kid too .
Phoebe gets to go to the doctor tomorrow. I think she is going to get a poke in the hiney too. Baxter is saying nanner nanner nanner, now its your turn. heeheh

Today is play day too cause Mom is hemming drapes for a friend and she won't let us help. She such a spoiled sport. We would love to help.
Oh well, we'll just have to entertain ourselves.

Okay now its nappy poo time.

Well, as you can see that most of my leisure time is taken up by the new kid on the block but it is such great therapy for a broken heart. We lost our Wallace in May and I think that my heart was aching for a long time. It is smiling again and I feel like our lives are complete again.

Have a Dog day Afternoon everyone. We are.

We got a new toy and I got stuck in the butt

Yep, went to see the doctor today for second dose of puppy shots and worming. He was pinned to the table by the assistant and he started screaming, literally like he was being beat and all they were going to do was trim his toenails. Baxter preceded to wee all over his self and was not a happy camper. I don't feel that was necessary as I trim them when he is resting on my lap with no problem but he felt that it was necessary to show who was alpha. Not sure I agree with all that. I would rather it be an enjoyable experience.
Anyway, I felt guilty so I bought him a big honking pig that sounds like an Uga horn when you squeeze it. The two of them love it. I also bought a hedgehog that is a little less annoying but is hairy and gets slimy too quickly as they are playing with it.
 My momma loves us, she love us, she gets down on her knees and hugs us, she loves us like a rock well,  at least a honkin pig. heheh
How could you not love these sweet two little kids?

Newest little mischief

Well, like all kids, you need to keep an eye on them all the time. In just a matter of a couple of minutes Baxter proceeded to grab my pin cushion and gave it a few good shakes. Straight pins went flying. ARKKKKK...... I grabbed him and Phoebe and threw them both in the kitchen and blocked it off while I proceeded to spend the next hour
and a half picking straight pins out of the carpet with the help of a good flash light and three goings over with the vacuum and then crawling on the pray
bones over every inch of floor making sure I didn't miss any. Keeping my
fingers crossed and shoes on for the next few weeks just to be sure.
Meanwhile Phoebe sat out on the front entry room waiting to tell Dad just what the kid did today. She is such a lady.

The baby has really kept me on my toes constantly moving are rearranging things that all of a sudden he finds that he can get into or chew on or something or other. I know he is getting taller as I just had to add blocks under the coffee table as he just puts his little feet up there and reaches for what ever he can get a hold of like my pin cushion.

Just another day in the life at the MacKay household.

A day in the life of two furry kids

Up at dawn and ready to rumble. heheh and rumble they do at 4:30 in the morning while I get the coffee going. They are sitting there asking wheres the beef and I keep explaining that breakfast is at 6:00 as they start to nibble my ankles. The sun comes out and out they go. We are suppose to have sunny days till Tuesday and boy I will gladly take them. I need to mow the lawn just to spruce the place up and keep the kids feet a little cleaner.

Awww... nap time for us all.

Super Bowl Winner of a Sandwich

 I have to say that this is one of the most awesome flavor extravaganzas ever.
I have shown you all the ingredients but I will list them for you also.

I nice fresh loaf of Fococcia bread split in half.
 After you split the loaf, butter both inside top and bottom and begin layering with lots of sliced garlic or make a garlic butter
 Havarti cheese
 Be sure that you use Portabella mushrooms for the best flavor

 Fresh garlic, lots of it
Red Onion
                                                            Havarti and Fresh Basil
 Prosciutto or you can go meatless, just as good

 I haven't shown it but I prefer to saute the mushrooms in a little olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar
Fresh thinly sliced Mozzarella  cheese and some Parmesan cheese 
 Oil the top of the loaf with a little olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt
 Double wrap in foil and bake at 275 degrees for about 30 min or until the cheese is melted inside.

 I then make a minestrone soup, Progresso or your choice to serve with the sandwiches.
Serve with a nice wine or fresh made lemonade.
Desert is KEY LIME PIE> YUM! ! !
