Creepy houses, Dumb dogs, Cute babies

I figured I should just go ahead and post even though I really don't have many events going on right now. So I just picked three random events that happened lately and that is what I am blogging about today.

Creepy Houses and Dumb Dogs

So I went for a walk the other day because I hadn't been out of the house in forever and the kids were driving me to distraction. I thought it might be a good idea to bring the dog. It wasn't. I brought my camera thinking that if I saw anything I found interesting I could take a picture.

At the very first step out the door my dog decided that today was not his day to behave on the leash. He tried to drag me down the street. The more I tried to get him to behave the more he decided that he was not going to behave. He wanted to visit every single dog that lived on the street despite the fact that about half of them would have eaten him for dinner if there hadn't been fences in the way. Once I did get him under control enough to be able to take photos I was so flustered that I wondered why I thought that taking him would make for a relaxing walk.

On the up side (if I can call it that) I got this photo of a house that I thought was really creepy in an Amityville Horror Type of way. Don't ask me why, but the photo (I don't think)displays just how eerie the atmosphere was around the yard. Even though the house is clearly lived in.

Cute Babies

The A few days ago my second daughter had a birthday. We had her baby cousin over who also has a birthday in March. She really enjoyed the cupcake.

Finally, I'll leave you with a picture of my two year old because two cute babies are better than one.

Great photos. I really miss having a dog. My kids keep begging me but I don't think a 3 bedroom apartment is a good place for a dog.

*wishes for a house with a backyard some day*

Your children are adorable.

Henry, our beloved Dalmatian/lab mix, used to take me for a drag... wanted to meet all the dogs... two things helped... if the HUBBY took him (he minded HWMNBMOTI better than me) or if I gritted down and took him every day and I DRUG HIM (meaning I went fast and refused to let him stop so he was a little tired).

I love that creepy house. I see some like that on my walking route and always wonder what the story is.

Happy birthday to your daughter! Love the kiddie pics!

Hi, Marjorie: I found your blog on Arlee Bird's blog list. I'm also a photographer. Your pics are great. I really enjoyed your boot photo/poem. Nice work.

I agree with the creepy as well as the cute. LOL!

Chary- I hope you can get a dog one day! They are pain but add a little something to life you wouldn't have otherwise.

Tami- I take my dog for a drag sometimes. I'd like to walk him at some point. haha!

Luana- Thank you for stopping by. It's great to see another photographer.

Kristin- Thank you for stopping by. Great to see new faces at my blog.

Love the pink lipstick!

I signed up for my first A-Z Blogging Challenge, #472, and saw your blog listed so I just stopped by to say "Hi". I look forward to reading your "alphabet" posts in April.

My dog is the SAME way! He's a little guy, but he's so happy to go visiting.

I always think about taking pictures on my walk, but that won't happen with the dog!
Ooh, creepy houses (yikes- so fun!) and I've got 2 kiddos myself, so I always toss in a picture just for fun.

I found you off Lee's list (tossing it out) and will be participating in the A-Z challenge!

Hope to follow your posts and if you feel like visiting, come swing by my place!

Nice one guys! It was really useful for my work. We might try to work a reference to this one into our blog post about wordpress houses later next week.
