Pretty Lights

This picture says it all...Mommy and Daddy are trying to enjoy the annual trip to the lighting of the Christmas lights on the Fayetteville square and Miss Thang was NOT into it. This year we decided against taking the stroller because it's crazy crowded, but someone did not want to be held or hold hands. You can imagine how easy that was with hundreds of people around.
Tom and Stella are watching the parade go by...sorry I didn't even get a picture of Santa because we were trying to keep the little one happy.
Ahh a snack helped ease the grumpiness but not for long...I don't have any pictures of the lights because she literally melted down in the middle of the square. Nothing would calm her down. i felt like a terrible mom. She was MAD...everyone was looking at us as we walked to the car--I'm sure they thought we were stealing her from someone...no she's ours, but VERY independent! But once she was buckled in the car everything was fine. So, we plan on returning to the square to get some family pictures before they turn the lights off after the holidays.
But here is something that makes Stella happy. Yes, that is my coffee cover from Starbucks and Stella thought it was so cool when I put it on her milk. That milk instantly transformed into a latte in her world.
So proud of her new drink.
And I took this picture today and wanted to share it. Stella and Diesel have a love/hate relationship...very on and off, but today they were enjoying a game of tug-o-war. I can't complain Diesel is super gentle with Stella. He only shows his teeth when she grabs his fur a little to tight, but otherwise he is very patient with her and she just loves him!

Hope everyone is having a GREAT week!
