Snuggle time with the kids

Today, I have had a chance to spend quality time with both Dexter and Nora.

I got up early, and did some things around the house, then decided to lay down and read for a little bit.  I went up to our bedroom, and snuggled under the comforter.  I had only read about 5 pages when Nora jumped up on the bed.  Normally, she will just lay beside me, but today, she climbed onto my chest and laid on the book, as if to say "no more reading, pay attention to ME." Who can argue with that.

Then, after we snuggled, I came down to take Dex outside to potty.  When we came in, he was in the mood to play, so he has been running around ever since.  But for a while he wanted to sit on my lap, so I picked him up and we snuggled, and played what I call the Flirt Game.  He will give me a kiss, and then look away real shy.  Then I give him a kiss, and look away.  This goes on forever, or until Nora saunters into the room and he decides he wants to chase her, and leaps off the couch. 

It is little moments like these that I love so much.  While their needs, personalities, and types of  companionship they offer are very very different, I know that both Nora and Dex love me, and I love them to pieces.  I make sure to tell them so every day.

I love moments like that. :) They make my day. Shelby likes to play a game where she lays down and drags her body towards me and if I pat the floor (or bed or couch... whatever she's on) she'll pat her paws at me and bark. She is so funny! :)

I totally get this. I awaken every morning to two cats waiting for me to get up. One is usually beside my on my pillow (the 18 pound buff colored cat) and one on he window seat (a smaller calico).

Then there are our two dogs, a GSD and a Shepherd/lab/etc. shelter dog. They're absolutely wonderful companions. (all pictured on my sidebar)

I just can't understand people who don't want animals living in the house. Plants and animals are part of what makes a home! :-)
