Our pile is twice as big

Merry Christmas! It's actually a white one here - first of my lifetime. Look at this cuteness that I woke up to this morning:

The whelping box is getting more crowded! All have doubled their weight.

Scout spent her first night with them last night and she did great. I took Magic home yesterday. I am so thankful for the help she gave us, and happy that Scout is now able to handle duties on her own.

This morning she is torn between wanting to be with her puppies and wanting to be outside in the snow, which I am vetoing at the moment to her great disappointment.

My brother and his wife and my nephew from Atlanta spent the night with us last night. We had our traditional Christmas Eve snack supper, Christmas movies and trivia games, just with a smaller group than usual. Brother and sis in law are headed up to get Mom this morning.

Hope all of you are enjoying a happy and peaceful day.

They are getting so BIG! And cute. The snow has just started here in Va but they aren't predicting much in the way of accumulations. Tell Scout Sister Moira is happy to take care of the snow playing duties this year.

I'm so happy the babies have doubled their weight. With two moms, it would be hard for them not to gain mightily.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family -- and take some snow photos. It might be your only chance.

Happy first Christmas, babies!

The puppies look great! I'm sorry that Scout can't go in the snow, though. We're supposed to get somewhere between 2 - 7 inches of it here, and even the weatherman is admitting he's not really sure. Scout can live vicariously through Rufus!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
