This happened tonight :) It was Oliver's idea and Nick is out of town.

These babies have been around since I was a little kid and I'm pretty sure I helped make Lindy's outfit below with Binny. A few years ago I passed them on to Oliver and he has loved them dearly ever since. Hi named the one in pink little Elliott and my mom decided it was time he had a less girly outfit. Check out their new outfits below! Their outfits required a one-month stay at Gramma's house and Oliver missed them dearly. When they arrived earlier this week he was so overjoyed that he wouldn't part with them for a full 24 hours.

their new clothing, thanks to Gramma!
thrilled to have his baby Elliott back in the moby wrap while big Elliott looks on
and he wanted to go for a walk with both of them (I had my Elliott in a stroller as well)

   Our favorite puppy turned six yesterday! She celebrated with a few new toys along with this key lime pie that Oliver and I made (she got to lick our plates :) ) Oliver even convinced me to let Penny sit at the table while he sang "happy birthday" to her.
   I can't believe that our little princess is six already and I wish time wouldn't pass so quickly. Penny has changed my life in more ways than I ever could have imagined. Because of her I'm a dog trainer and manager of the business, and so far she has been spotted on a local credit union brochure, in a published book, on the cover of one magazine and on the editorial page of another, on a local TV show doing tricks, in several vacuum cleaner commercials, and now we are on the radio together every other week. I must say that co-hosting a radio show is one thing I never imagined myself doing.
   We love you Miss P!

Penny has some new skills when it comes to playing dead during a game of tug-of-war with Oliver. We might even be able to get rid of our mop if we take her swimming first :)
