Mom has lost it

I want to thank you all for the kind words of encouragement for my loony Mom. I think this whole wedding thing has got her a little bit crazy. Last night she had a dream that they got married but then the guy who was driving their license to the recorder's office got in a car accident and the license was destroyed! Talk about losing it! She started feeling a lot better yesterday when the mailman came and brought her a WONDERFUL gift card from Peanut's family and that includes Grammie and her crew of dogs. It was a gift card for Mom's favorite spice store and she was almost crying when she read the card! Thank you guys so so much for the gift for her wedding, it came at a perfect time. She spent an hour reading the catalog to see how to spend her gift card!

Tanner thought that a great way to add excitement to the blog would be to play dress up.

He put on his Mickey Mouse shirt that he got from Princess Snowball.

Are you KIDDING me?! I really don't like dressing up at all.

But then Tanner said that Mom bought some bananananananas the other day so if I dressed up I would probably get some.

Plus this shirt is not so bad. I mean, if you have to wear a shirt it should at least speak the truth. It may be hard to read but it says, Tiny Dog, Huge Attitude.

Tanner likes that shirt because it hides his incredible bulk.

Sure enough, we got our reward. Sorry for the blurry photo but at this point I am crashing into Mom's leg demanding that delicious banananananna. Look at the price of that! Mom gets them on the clearance cart because we sure don't care if they are a little bit too ripe!! YUM! Lots of doggies said they really love seeing the food pics on the blog, so I am going to leave you guys with one that will keep you drooling...

Mom made this pizza was YUMTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!! Mom has her own blog for food if you want to check it out! Thank you again for all the kind words. This wedding better hurry up and get over or Mom might end up starting a THIRD blog or something equally insane.

Have a great Memorial Day guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, that pizza looks amazing!
We've been playing catch up on the blogs. Somehow, Mom needing to do home improvement and yard work projects is interfering with OUR computer time. How fair is that? Hrmph!
Be patient with your mom! She's only human - ya know?

And you're right about the shirts: if you gotta wear one to get snacks, it must be cool. Come check out my store, Mama said she'd love to send you whatever shirt you want!

If you gotta wear a shirt, that is way cool. We wear jammies - some of us who get cold - and we like 'em. But some of us hate 'em so we don't gotta. (If our grammer is a little rough today, we been listnin' and rockin' to the bands in front of our house all weekend and we can't help it. Yah doooode!)

Oh I meant to tell you a few years back there was a cyclone in North Queensland that destroyed many banana plantations. It had a huge effect on the price of our bananas. Anyway, the price rose to $15 a kilo.....$15 can u believe it and Australia doesn't import bananas so we had no choice but to pay up or not eat them.

That pizza looks yummy. Your mom has made some great recipes as we all know here. We even have a toaster oven now. Who would have thought Grammie would get to be a million-zillon years old and never had one before.
Things will settle down after the wedding. I hope you guys have your tuxs ordered.

Joey and Tanner, I am so excited for your family! Many congratulations to your mom and dad and I hope their wedding day is beautiful, and they give you some wedding cake too.

My nana is kind of crazy and my mom had lots of weird dreams before her wedding about it - in one of them, my nana wore a huge tiara (like Miss America but bigger) to the wedding. I am sure everything will go well on the big day for your parents!

Your friend, Lenny
