Riley's Room

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile! School has been taking up so much of my time and not a lot has been going on.

Anyway. Way back for Christmas, Riley was promised a new room and it's been slowly being put together and now it's finally done. Here's her critter corner:
 The bird's name is Shay, and you know Colin the Westie. Shay is such a funny parrot! Although not the most appropriate one! Apparently Aaron taught him how to cuss and now that's all he wants to say. Riley is trying to retrain him, but every time Shay sees Aaron he starts cursing again. Aaron and Shay have to be separated now, hehe.
 In the background you can kind of see Riley's cool bed. It's a trundle bed so I can sleep over and it's very comfortable. Her quilt has Scottie dogs on it. Oh, yeah, I'm holding a chicken. It's not real, but since Riley had Shay I didn't want to be left out.
Here's Riley and Shay again. Aren't they adorable? The pictures on the wall are from "Ice Age", Riley's favorite movies.

I'm trying to patiently wait for spring break and hopefully something more exciting to blog about.

Snow Day

Well, actually the snow day was several weeks ago, but I have been too busy (lazy) to post. We don't have any snow anymore. The one good snow we had only lasted a week.
 
Riley and I made a snow fort...
 ... and JJ attacked!
 Later we had a snowball fight. Perhaps my snowball was too big? Is that even possible?
 JJ said she was ready for it.
 But... She was not a happy camper after that.
 Riley looked so cold in the snow!
 The last thing I did was make a snow angel.
When we went inside we had hot chocolate. I gave JJ extra marshmallows since she was still mad about the snowball. She forgave me after that. I wish it would snow again. There is something magical about that white stuff.
