too smart for her own good

Now that Bug has pretty much figured out that both the Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny are not real, she's had to take a long, hard look at Santa. The other day she came across this letter from Santa and decided to investigate.

Conclusion: "I'm almost 79% sure Santa isn't real but I still kind of want to believe in him."

me too, Boo Boo. me too.

Random photo of the day: yesterday we went for a drive out to Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge to see if the Tundra Swans had arrived yet; they had, but they got spooked and flew away before I could get a photograph. We did, though, see this little porcupine; this is the third time in a row that we've seen a porcupine when we go out there. Last time we were out there we watched as one wandered along a ridge, down across the path right in front of us and he made his way over to a tree. We stood and watched as he sloooowly climbed the tree and settled in for a nap on a branch. This little guy yesterday was just munching on some ground-cover off the road; he let me get about 10 feet away before he ambled off. Luckily I didn't get any quills in my snout!

awwwww, he's cute, as long as you are a LONG ways away from him.
Poor Smokey, the only reason she got them was because ( not knowing what she was barking at ) Steve yelled "sik 'em ". Poor baby, it took three men, a boy and me to hold her down while Sterling tried to pull out the quills. ( of course Bill was gone ).
