On Thanksgiving we visited three of our different friends' houses. We first stopped off at Norm & Shirley's place and then went to Brooke & Anne's place and ended off the night with Steve & Amanda. It was great to see everyone and enjoy some great food together. Claire got to play with various dogs and kids so she had a great day as well.
Claire's hair is starting to get pretty long.

Playing kickball in the front yard.
We went to Monkey Joe's on Sunday afternoon. Every time we drive near the Park Road Shopping Center she says "Monkey Joe's". That blur on the slide is us.
Claire is quite the helper. When Parker is done eating and she sees water in his crate she asks for a paper towel and cleans it up.
We got our tree on Sunday and Claire was telling me where to hang all of the ornaments. She loves looking at the lights.
Every time we go to the farmer's market Claire gets a free apple. It's funny to watch her eat such a big apple.
It was pajama day at school.
My life has gotten a little more hectic since we've added Parker to our family. My morning now starts at 5:30am to take him out to the bathroom. Then we do some marker training. Then we go for a run to tire him out for the day. I then feed him and go get ready for work before Claire wakes up. Once Claire wakes up I get her ready for school and try to eat breakfast at the same time. A bit hectic but I'm starting to get used to it. We couldn't have asked for a better dog though.
Until we've got our house rules and pack structure in order Parker will stay on leash while in the house and he sleeps in his crate. He doesn't seem to mind his crate at all. Once he knows all the rules and is following them he'll get more freedom in the house. He's pretty darn good so I don't think it will take too long but don't want to rush it.
Budinski has been hissing at Parker quite a bit but Parker doesn't seem to be a threat for him. After 13 years I don't think he likes having another man in the house.
