Halley loves Christine

May 2, 2009 by

Christine, my assistant (shown below), brings the “empties” to the house with her. With three young children at home, that happens pretty often.

Christine is now Halley’s favorite human. Note how Halley’s toes are all spread out. That is a sign of intense concentration.

Sleep in and celebrate the Holiday!

Believe it or not, I did not pose them. I found them like this. This is probably what they do all day while we are at work.

Halley’s Steps

Aug 26, 2008 by

Halley is getting a little stiffer as she gets older (she’s 10 now) and does not like to go down the front steps very much. We think that they are just steeper than some of the other steps.

We needed to have the back steps (off the screened-in porch) rebuilt with a landing, because the existing steps were a little dangerous. As long as we were rebuilding steps, it seemed like a good idea to make them with a nice gradual slope for Halley. I’d like to say we built these ourselves (we did rebuild the front steps ourselves), but again, we paid to have someone else do the work. They do still need to be stained, but here are Halley’s new steps!

What a nice life

Dec 21, 2007 by

This is Halley, who just turned 10 and spends a lot of her time in a variety of napping positions and locations throughout the house. This one (like my nephew Nathan’s sleeping positions) was too good to pass up.


I should mention that she alternates her napping with scratching at the front door so that someone lets her in (or out) of the house.

Halley is a GIRL

Dec 16, 2007 by

Joel always hates it when they put bows in Halley’s hair after a bath & grooming. He says that Halley does not act very girl-like and so he thinks it is just creepy.

But I think she looks really cute with her Christmas bows.
