Loving Life's Little Surprises!

Chloe says, "Thanks for the prizes, Cooper & Lola!"
So this has been a really great week! My daughter (and the other Hu-Mom to the Sibes) celebrated her birthday. We've had lots of snow, which makes the FiveSibes very happy. Then a package arrived from our furpals Cooper & Lola, who ran a drawing on their blog for a first aid kit, and notified us that we had won it! What a terrific surprise! Chloe was there to help me open it up and check out the goodies inside. In addition to a great little first aid kit, there was also a nice red frisbee, which the FiveSibes will love to play with, a cute (and very handy) magnetic petsitter pad, and an adorable photo of Cooper & Lola themselves! Thanks guys!!! 

Big Bro Buster all comfy at home.

"It's a small world after all." How true are those words! In one of those interesting and coincidental life moments, we discovered just how connected we all are. My family and I were out at our favorite pizza place one night, when we bumped into my husband's cousins, aunt, and uncle, all of whom we hadn't seen in many years, and were in town to celebrate one of the cousin's special birthday. It was fun catching up, and we had the opportunity to speak to his one cousin's children, who I hadn't seen since they were little! Well, they are all grown up now, and as we were talking to my cousin's son, who was visiting from Montana and mentioned that he had his Husky out in the Jeep. Naturally, we mentioned how we had five Siberian Huskies, and would love to meet his. Before we went out to meet handsome Buster, we discovered after some discussion, that he came from the same breeder as four of ours and was the older brother to our Gibson, and to his younger siblings (the "pupsters") Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit! And...you may notice Buster's strong resemblance to little sis Bandit!

So Happy Birthday, to the very handsome (and maybe camera-shy?) older brother to Four-out-of-FiveSibes, Buster! (Who just happens to have our second cousin as his Hu-dad!) 

Talk about a small world and a week filled with happy surprises! Until next time, stay happy, healthy, and safe!
