wine, leather chairs and greyhounds..oh my!

so...it snowed again. big deal. We haven't seen grass in 3 weeks. Right before posting this blog, I looked outside to see a flock of robins in a tree (look closely there are a bunch).and a deer munching leaves behind the fence..maybe they know something we don'tbut anyways..I have spent a lot of time indoors. Even the Super bowl was low key due to nasty weather. I guess not everyone dines like we do for the Big Game?but for Valentines Day we went to a wine dinner at a local winery (James river Cellars). Kristen, Gyeong, Scott and Iva came along too. we did the obligatory pre-drinking photos:My stab at being artsy..and of course..the post 2-3 courses of food and wine photos.
What do you think Gyeong is grabbing for here?mr. innocent.The next morning, Kristen and Gyeong needed to go visit family in richmond so we kept their kids for them for the day. That gave us 9 dogs for the day..first there was a sunbeam fixation
then everyone settled for a bit (L-R: Dana, Stella, Henry, Stanley, Shiloh, Cali, Dante, Jaime)Then..it started..the fight for the leather chair....
Stella started it while Gyeong enjoyed his coffee
then Stanley and Parker shared it..Then Parker had his turn..in a VERY cute wayAnd finally, the chair gave in and grew legs and teeth..Stanley styleMaybe Spring will spring soon enough..right now I would settle for some green in my scenery.

Parker looks so cute and tiny in the chair.

Ah, the sunbeam fixation...
I was practicing my flute one day and I just happened to be standing in the beam of light that was shining through the glass. It took me a minute or so to realize that Roadie was barking at me because he wanted to lie down in the spot I was occupying! Silly dogs.

Naughty boys in VA, I see. I also do NOT see Kristen batting his hand away. I know how you are. Leather chairs. Frisky hands. I know your type.

Oh, I dine like you do for the big game. YUM-O!

I wonder what it was about the leather chair? Someone must have been sitting in it that has a good smelling bum!

LOVE it - these pics of the 9 dogs all settled in your lounge are classic! I don't think you could fill a room with any other breed of dog & get that super-chilled atmosphere ;-) Jx http://maxandmollydesigns.wordpress.com
