Good Morning Charles ,handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

Thank you for the coffee the past couple of days and your kind posts as always. Thank you for the compliment on Luke's picture as well. I was so excited to get enough snow to be able to hold the carnival this weekend that I had to have Luke in the snow as well. I know he will be there with us in spirit also.

How is Cupcake doing? I hope doing real well as I am sure she is. These furkids at times hurt themselves and we don't know where or when it happen.

I am working on getting a couple of horses and sleds for the carnival  but  all else is in place. The farmer I normally get them from has his already booked out to another carnival going on this weekend but said he would get me at least one horse and sled but maybe even two from a friend of his. I guess all the winter activities had to wait till we got the snow to carry on and now that we have snow,everything is going on.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Afternoon Charles and kids. Thank you for coffee this morning and most of all, THE SNOW. YESSSSSSS. What started out to be rain this morning  turned to snow and came down full force and the temperture is cooling off and suppose to stay that way for the rest of the week so it shouldn't melt away .We have had about six inches of snow so far  today and it is still snowing heavy. My car outside is covered. It looks like we will be holding the carnival next weekend.Lawrence and front end loader are at work right now starting on building the hill for a toboggon slide. He says if he doesn't get enough  snow to build a nice sized hill,he will go get more snow from across the road. HaHa .

Samantha, Toby and Tyson as well as all the shelter kids are having a ball outside in the freshly fallen snow.

We are happy to hear Cupcake is back to being herself and its a good idea to keep her from running and jumping for awhile yet. We will continue to keep her in our prayers.

Take care and have a grand wekend. It looks like I will be busy getting things prepared for the carnival. YESSSS.. Keep sending that snow our way as the higher the toboggon hill the more fun for the kids."smile"

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Good Morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M and of coarse Cupcake and Xander.

Thank you for visiting and  coffee for the past couple of days and your kindness as always. I am starting to get back to normal after the holidays. It is raining here today which is not at all our kind of weather for this time of year. I was hopeing to get enough snow to have a  toboggon slide hill made for the volunteer kids but don't know if I will be able to get it done this winter. I was wanting to hold a winter carnival for them as a Thank you for helping out . I still may do so but have to think of some other fun activities for them.

Doris sends her regards and says she is continuing to keep Cupcake in her prayers as she mends. She can only imagine trying to keep her quiet as she doesn't know how she could ever keep Samantha quiet.

That is great news about the new shelter going up in NM. We certainly need more of them around the world.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

P/S Cupcake... be a good girl  as I know you are and listen to your Dad and you will soon be able to race around with Xander again.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter

Hi Charles and kids. Just a quick stop while I have my lunch to say Hello and hope the holidays went well for you. I am glad they are over and it certainly is good to be back home after my short but fun trip. Now the had part of catching up on things left undone are upon me but I will get it done."Smile".

I am thinking of sweet Cupcake and praying she is doing well as I am sure Xander is also. My kids haven't left my side since I got home, I get the feeling that they missed me while I was away.haha.

Take care and have a grand day,

Sending hugs all around.

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved fur babies family and friends
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives



And when I ponder those who do,
I immediately think of you.All my precious friends on Critters



Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have a Happy New Year!
Thinking of you all and your fur babies.Thanku for looking after me. Much love and many
hugs. God Bless xx

Hi again Charles. I  wanted to add, had I known that I was going to Vegas, I certainly would have let you know and it would have been awesome to meet with you in person. It seems everyone else knew we were going but Trina and myself. We got our gifts late Christmas Day.Needless to say, I had alot to do in one day as I had to make sure everything was OK before I left.HaHa. I certainly will let you know the next time that I go to Vegas, of coarse with some notice. HaHa.

Good Morning Charles,handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.

Thank you so much for your visits and posts to Luke while I was away. It was nice to get away and we did have a wonderful time but YES I did miss my kids and all the shelter kids as I always do. I knew they were all being well looked after but I missed them anyway. I was almost knocked over by Toby and Tyson when I got home so I guess they missed me too.haha.

I haven't been to the shelter yet but am on my way there with gifts for all of coarse.I  wondered about all them squeaky toys in my luggage at the border, hahaha,but all went well. Its good to be back home. I will write to you a little later today when I get back to normal. haha. This nitelife is something else.

Hopeing all is well with you and Cupcake and Xander.

Hi Charles,Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Thank you for your post . We all  had a wonderful Christmas. I prepared dinner for twenty one people. On Christmas eve we did get enough snow to make it a white Christmas. It was just beautiful. The snow kept gently falling all night and part of Christmas Day . We sure didn't get enough for making a toboggan hill as I had planned for the kids but it will come in time, I am sure. Lawrence's plow and front end loader are ready to go. "smile". Trina and I are leaving for Vegas tomorrow morning as that was out Christmas gifts from Byron and Bud. We got an all expense paid trip for three nights ,which should be alot of fun.

Sending hugs as always.

Lauvern and all.

Charles, next Christmas, you are coming here to spend the holidays with my family, my dogs, my cats and me! No buts, ifs or ands about it! Pack your bag and put it in the closet. It is a long drive so  start practicing    Cupcake and Zander for driving on the long, straight and flat places. (and I-40 is almost exclusively long, straight and flat from you to come to here..)  You can nap while they drive. Xander can mind the pedals and Cupcake can steer. Tippy drove all the time when we traveled. 

I had a "still" day also. My dayghter and granddaughter are planning to come today from Austin and stay until Saturday. Pray for sun! We have plans to build a chicken house and a fort. And we also will be collecting rocks and playing with all the pets.

xoxoxo Pat and Beasties

Good Evening Charles, Cupcake and Xander. 

Thank you for your visit and post this morning. You certainly are getting alot of snow. We finally had about a inch of snow last night and are suppose to be getting some more tomorrow. I hope this time the weatherman is right. I don't think I want as much as you got but some snow for Christmas would be nice.

Yes it is Trina and Bud coming in tonight and I am really looking forward to them coming in. I don't know if I told you but she and I went right through school together. She is more like a sister to me. This Christmas will be just like old times when we were always together at Christmas. The Fur Kids will all be spoiled REAL well by her and Bud as the both of them love furbabies.I will certainly relay your message to them. 

I am finding things to do as I try and stay up until about 2:00 am as I am picking them up at the airport at 3:30am.I thought it would be easier staying up then trying to get up at that time.

I will relay your message to Granny and Kim and of coarse Samantha and Taz.

Take care and stay safe in that extreme weather that you are having out your way..

Wishing you, Cupcake and Xander a Very Merry Christmas and All The Best In 2012..


Sending hugs all around ...

Lauvern and family and all at Luke's shelter.

There's More to Christmas...

There's more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
It's the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It's thoughtfulness and kindness,
It's hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!

Dear Charles: We wish you a very Merry Christmas. Kiss the pups for us.  We will be with you in spirit on Christmas Day!

xoxoxo Pat, Pearl, Tim, Mike, Lita, Clem, Thelma, Louise, Lacey, Anna, Dom Deluise and Dinah Shore....
