Mama's incredibly delayed post regarding Shelby's Birthday

Oh I have not been very good about keeping y'all up to date! A busy work schedule, a busy holiday schedule, the flu, and poof! no posts! Let's get back on track.

Starting with Shelby's birthday! Our gal turned 6 years old on December 4. Happy Birthday Shelby!

Happy 6th Birthday Shelby!

I really don't know what got into Vin. I think that's his demon face. Normally being near his dog and near a cake makes him pretty agreeable. I think he was unhappy with our request for him to sit still for this picture. He cheered up right after he got his first bite of cheesecake.

We normally get a puppy cake in the shape of a bone for Shelby, but the bakery that sells them closed this year. I found this little cheesecake at the grocery store, and Shelby seemed happy with it, though we're sad the dog bakery closed.

Some of you might also notice our long-suffering birthday hat has also made an appearance. We bought it for Shelby, but it worked out great for Vin's first birthday too. (Shh. Don't tell him we dressed him up in dog apparel.) Sometime between his birthday and Shelby's birthday, he got a hold of the hat and decided it would be fun to tear apart the yellow puff ball on top. And it is. But not for mama. Naughty boy. I had to make some last minute repairs before Shelby could wear it. She can hardly contain her excitement whenever she sees this thing because it means CAKE!

Sorry to hear you were sick and glad that you are feeling better. I just love your blog (wish I were as talented!)! I have a pug (Fredbird) who is two and normally will only allow me to put a sweater/coat on him. I was able to get a halloween costume on him (purple monkey outfit-with hat) long enough to get photos. Pugs are wonderful companions...Have a great holiday and thank you for blogging!

Vin's getting to that age whereby he will not agree with you all the time. Be prepared for more destroying esp with boys!! Why do ppl in the west call thier mums, mama? I thought that is more for Chinese. Just curious!!

Happy Birthday sweet Shelby!! Glad to see your pretty party hat survived to help you celebrate another birthday.
Looks like little bro could use a doggy kiss.

Happy Belated B-day Shelby, I love the party hat, it's too cute.

I think "Mama" is used pretty much world wide, Boblyn. My people are Norwegian and Danish and both sides used Mama and Papa.
Now "Mum" is a bit different. Are you from England?

That birthday hat with yellow pom looks good on Shelby and we wish everyone in
your close circle a Merry Christmas and
Good Health and More Prosperity in the
coming year. Love your Pug and Boy adventures, big or small.
