Lights, Camera, Impressions

Christmas has sprung up on us this year. The dog must be keeping us too busy to notice the time flying by. Now we're just over a week away from going back home for Christmas! To get us in the Christmas spirit and enjoy a little bit of togetherness before we all go home for the holidays, Mel invited us over for some delicious chicken chili and then we headed off to look at the big tree in Quincy Market. We had to stop for a fabulous photo op:
Annie, Derrick, and Mel
 Your favorite couple
 Kirsten & Seth
After all of that fun on Friday, we headed to the clinic bright and early for my recall visit and so Amit could take my impressions. He'll be making me a bleaching tray and a night guard. He did a great job (again). The impressions went great, I didn't gag or anything, so hopefully he's proud of me! I even managed to snap a few pictures with my phone. Enjoy!
Trying to smile with all that stuff in my mouth
 Not a bad sight to look at while getting impressions done...
Can't leave a post without talking about Emma. Saturday was nice enough to play a good game of catch outside. She loves to hit the ball around with her paws. She's too cute!

I wish I was in Paris...

Nate is spending three weeks in my favorite country. Needless to say I'm a little jealous. Luckily for me, he's decided to blog all about it, as much as is possible without endless wi-fi.

In case you want to follow his blog, here it is: American In Paris.

Hopefully he'll take after my blog and take many pictures of food!!

Christmastime is Here!

Emma's finally off our laps and playing with her Wubba, guess now I can start typing. Yes, now that Thanksgiving is over we can start celebrating our fabulous countdown until Christmas. The Christmas music is on, decorations are up, the chocolate Advent calendar from Trader Joe's is ready to go, and we just took our Christmas pictures!

John was awesome and took our pictures again this year, only we decided to make things a little more tricky. Emma was in them! Lucky for him (and us), she's doing great with training and knows sit! It was a little confusing for her to try to figure out that while we were telling her what to do, she was actually supposed to look at the camera. She did great though! Here are some of my favorites -
This one was a good start...
She was actually looking at the camera!
Peekaboo!!
I love when she perks her ears up!
Cute black & while ones

She loves her closeups!

And the best of all??
The photos turned out great! Thanks, John!! Emma's fabulous and we're so thankful for her. As Amit's favorite car magnet says, "Who rescued who?"

Emma Anecdotes

Emma has been keeping us very busy! We go on daily jogs and walks, which she loves. We've only been her parents for 3 weeks, but she'll even heel for us now! We start doggy obedience training on Saturday, so hopefully she keeps up the good work. Since I haven't blogged in a while, you all need an update about some of Emma's funnier moments. She has had many, but these are just the few we've caught on video.
These aren't videos, but still funny!
Emma likes to play with her toys while laying on her back.
It is too funny to watch her hold her toys in her paws.
(I apologize for the fuzzy photo - I need to get my camera fixed.)
This one was cute, we caught it on my phone.
She was super tired last night, 
but apparently didn't want to let go of her bone.
Now on to the good stuff!
BU was off today, so the boys came over to play some video games.
We had no idea Emma was such a fan!

Tonight we discovered another skill. 
She has a keen eye and can easily catch a mouse.

She's a great dog and the three of us are inseparable. We love having this happy, hyper dog to come home to!

Emma's Firsts

Last Sunday we took Emma for her first hike. She loved it. We managed to tire her out enough to get a few good pictures, too.


Amit also played catch with her for the first time. She'd run and get the ball and then throw it around and chase it all by herself. She was quite funny to watch.





Apparently holding up the ball is the best way to get her to stand still enough for a good picture. Here she is!
