Meet Gynness

Hello my raviolis.  By now you know that grandma-ma is bringing home a rescue dog.   She is a miniature dachshund who is 3 years old and her name is Gynness.  She is a pretty chocolate brown and then her coloring gets darker down her long back to a black brown color. 

Look at those sweet eyes.

Grandma-ma went shopping and bought her a new bed to snooze in.  A pretty french blue mink blanket will keep her warm and let her snuggle under it.

Gynness is crate trained.  That means she will quietly stay in a crate while traveling or during the day while grandma-ma is at work.  We will use the crate for a few weeks and then slowly let her stay out of it when grandma-ma is at work.  She will have to learn how to tell grandma-ma when she needs to go outside and until she can do that, we will use her crate.  It is a bright lime green and is like a "pup" tent. I think Gynness will like it, don't you?

And finally, another bed for Gynness to sleep in. Grandma-ma has an antique Eastlake cradle that I put a small, mink blanket matt for her to sleep on.  

Gynness is ready for bed.  She gathers up all her toys and puts them in her crate before she snoozes.  She is still wearing a cone around her head to keep her from pulling out the stitches she has on her belly.   Her stitches come out on Thursday and then she comes home to Grandma-ma forever.  I can't wait until she is home with me.  I will post lots of pictures for you to see.

Grandma-ma loves you.

What's hiding in the leaves

Hello my raviolis.  Grandma-ma is trying to catch up with her blogging.  I haven't forgotten about you and when I saw this video I had to upload it for you.  Watch carefully to see what is hiding in the leaves.

This husky dog is having so much fun.  I think I would like to run through the leaves with him, would you?  Do you know who liked to run through leaves like this?  Kota did.  When I would rake up autumn leaves and make a piles, he would dash through them with joyful doggie abandon. just like this Husky.

Have a joyful abandon day to all of you.  Grandma-ma loves you.

More baby goat shenanigans!

Hello my raviolis.  Here is another silly video about a goat who loves to play with a pink yoga ball.  He is having such a good time with it.
He is as silly as Buttermilk who loves to jump on her brothers and sisters.  I hope you enjoy watching him play with the ball and jump on the picnic table.  Grandma-ma loves you.

What does the farmer say?

Hello my raviolis.  This video is posted for Connor.  It is all about what the "farmer says."  It is funny but also shows what a farmer does all day.

I bet  the sound that Connor likes best is when the farmer says "vvvroom, vvroom, vvvroom."

Let grandma-ma know and have a ravioli day.  Grandma-ma loves you.

Buttermilk the silly goat

Grandma-ma likes goats.  They are funny and smart and full of energy.  When grandma-ma saw this video she thought of one of her raviolis and thought, "If Kelsey was a baby goat, she would be Buttermilk."

Yes, this is most definitely Kels Bells.  She is so excited to see what is going on and is jumping all over her brothers and sisters to make sure she doesn't miss any thing.

Here is Buttermilk in the barn and getting into everything. She is a funny little goat.

Have a Buttermilk day my raviolis.  Love Grandma-ma.

Halloween Pumpkins at the Zoo

Hello my raviolis.  Did you know that many animals love to eat pumpkins?  Even animals who are usually meat eaters (carnivores) love a good vegetable.  Many zoo's and animal safari's provide pumpkins in October to the animals and they really enjoy them.

Here is grandma-ma's favorite halloween animal video.  Watch this silly squirrel carve a pumpkin. 

Have a wonderful weekend my silly halloween raviolis.  Love you so - grandma-ma

Can you guess what this is?

Hello my raviolis.  It has been a very long time since I have posted but Grandma-ma is back and has posted a few pictures.  Can you guess what each picture shows?  

Here is a hint...this will make a pretty Cinderella gown.

 Here is another hint...this will make a "Brave" gown.

 Brilliant colors are perfect for a Dragon car.

  Cape and Celtic symbol fabric for Mereda.

Grandma-ma will be very busy this week as she puts together Halloween costumes.  There are sequins all over the house and even Kota has been wearing them as they stick to his fur.  He looks very funny in blue and gold sequins.  I love you my raviolis.  Grandma-ma

Keeping raviolis busy for 30 minutes.

You will need a fine Sharpie marker and the ability not to giggle while you draw this on their hand.

Yea, this should do it.
I would put one on both hands, just to keep them super busy and see if one hand can jump faster than the other. LOL
Grandma-ma loves you all.
p.s. I wonder how many daddies will put this on their hand too?

Baby Elephant Sees the Ocean for the First Time.

Hello my raviolis.  When you saw the ocean for the first time, what did you do?  Did you run down the sand to the waters edge as the waves crashed in?  Did you dive into the water with joyful abandon?  This little Indian elephant baby is in the ocean for the very first time and he loves it.  Look how happy he is with elephant smiles and rolls. 

He is having so much fun and it makes me smile.  I want to laugh and play in the ocean too.  Have a wonderful day and remember grandma-ma loves you.

Moose twins in sprinkler

Hello my raviolis.  Now that we know that the NY raviolis will soon be Alaska raviolis this summer, I thought you might like this sweet video of baby moose twins frolicking in a backyard sprinkler.

I wonder if Kelsey, Connor and Kaitlyn will have visitors like this in their back yard?  I hope so, it would be fun to watch them.
