That fluffy white stuff mom calls snow showed up here again. Sometimes there is lots and lots of it but this time it was just enough to make the ground turn white. Ruthie and I played and
rolled around in it during our weekend walks. Dad tried to put a hat on me so I would stay warmer but I was not to exited about it and it came off pretty quickly. Mom thought Ruthie and I should wear our winter coats but Dad said it wasn't cold enough yet. There was another HUSKER game on TV but everyone stayed home to watch it this time.
Next, Mom went to the Beauty Shop and had her hair and nails done then a few days later Ruthie and I went to the Beauty Shop to get our hair and nails done.
The week before Thanksgiving Mom went to the grocery store and bought soooooo many groceries that it took Mom and Dad about an hour and a half to put everything away. Mom was gone for three hours shopping then when she got home Dad brought everything in for her. We only got our regular dog treats - Was hoping for some special ones for the Holidays ?
After Ruthie and I went to the beauty shop Mom CLEANED house. Mom was waiting till we went because she was hoping most of our shedding dog hair would stay there instead of on the wood floors. I heard one of the groomers say that they combed about another dog out of Ruthie. I was holding on to my hair!
The night before Thanksgiving my two legged sister Meghann came over and spent the night. I heard
the plan was to make all of the Thanksgiving dishes the night before but all they did was set the table. It sure did look pretty. I was kind of upset that evening because Dad let Ruthie sleep with Meghann while all I got was the old cat Baby and I still had to say in my mudroom bedroom. Ruthie always gets to do more then I do but Mom says when I finally settle down and act more like an adult and not a teenager I will get to do special things too.
Thanksgiving day started out with Mom in the kitchen making food that smelled soooo wonderful. Ruthie and I stayed close to her because every now and then something fell on the floor. After Mom was done Dad started on a thing he called a turkey. It was a big bald bird. He put it in a bag then in a big pan then into the oven. After about an hour Mom said the house smelled like Thanksgiving. Not sure what that means but it did smell nice.
Thanksgiving Day at the Schense House
This Thanksgiving we were missing two very special family members. Dad's Dad Bob Sr. and Mom's Dad Ed. We saved a place for them and lit a candle to show them the way from Heaven to come and spend the day with us.
Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving Day!!
