Thanksgiving workday

My parents were here for Thanksgiving and my mom and I planned a workday for my dad so that I could get some things done around the house that are beyond my abilities. They came by on Friday and brought their dogs so that they could meet Lula and see how their dogs got along with the my new addition. We are planning ahead for vacation in 2013 to make sure that my dogs can still come with me and 'visit' the entire family.

While Dad worked on changing out an outside light fixture to a motion detector fixture, Mom got to see Lula who was more interested in sniffing behinds the new dogs. Also on the agenda was fixing the shower faucet, adding a remote to a ceiling fan and replacing the front screen door.

Dad and I made a trip to Home Depot and Dad decided that I should just replace the front door and the screen door since there has been some water damage to the door frame and he wouldn't have time to replace the screen door. We also stopped at Skyline so that he and mom could enjoy their cuisine.

By the end of the day, the light fixture was changed, the shower was fixed (and the water pressure is amazing now!), the ceiling fan remote works and a date was set up for measuring my door.

Oh, and the dogs were all friends! Max, Maisy and Lula graciously shared their toys with the intruders other dogs and no blood was shed.

Jasper has 1 brown and 1 blue eye. He was not having a very good time this trip even though it was a warmer than usual week. He has seizures and they are playing with his meds. Here he is with Fat Daphne and Max in the background.

Jasper really likes the sunshine and he may have been missing that at my sister's house where my parents stayed.

And Maxie was tuckered out at the end of the visit.

I'm a doxie mom too and my brother-in-law also has doxies. When he comes to visit, the girls all have the best time together.
