Courtesy of Our Sitter

Powder watches and waits...
The 'rents had a great time. They had such a great time that they even spent the night away from us. Our sitter rocked. We wanted for nothing and even made appearances every once in a while. The above photo is the littlest member of the family staring out of the window waiting for her Mommy. It had to be taken with a zoom lens since sitters are not allowed to get close to the Princess!
I, too, am thrilled to have the 'rents back. I have noticed that without thumbs, it's very hard to blog, or open a can, or the treat canister. The bed is not as warm.
I missed all of you!
Smoochies!

We are happy to hear that your parents had fun. A break can be great! It's good seeing pretty Powder out and about. She always makes us smile to see her.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Wow, a very nice romantic date! The 'rents take such good care of you everyday, surrendering their opposable thumbs to your every whim, so we are glad they had some time to themselves!

Oh man! Google ate my comment. I mean I can understand being hungry but that's ridiculous. I really need someone who takes care of my every need... someday I will.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Well I'm glad you all survived the night without the people.

Oh, man, tell me about it! It's so hard to blog when the beans are away, or unwilling... you think that Kate would have helped me blog HEAPS since she's been on vacation, but nooo!

We're glad the sitter was a lot of fun...did she forget about your d-i-e-t, Parker???

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Sweet Powder, patiently waiting.

Sounds like you guys didn't make out too bad though, all considering.

We were wondering about the old D-word too, Parker.

Cory said...

Did you turn your back on them when they returned? We usually do that to make sure they don't try it too often.

We are glad that your 'rents came back, it is no fun when they go away! Powder is so cute and very floofy!

Laila and Minchie said...

That picture of Powder is so sweet! Yes, once in a while we have to let the rents out. Absense makes the heart grow fonder.

The Furry Kids said...

We're glad the 'rents made it back. We waved at them as they drove by, though. :)
Sorry about the D-word. We're going through that, too. It sucks. :(

My mom has never left me overnight - I wonder what it would be like?

I'm not sure I'm ready to find out!

Yikes! You let them leave for the whole night? We let the Lady and the 3 teenagers leave for a whole day last week, but they came home just after midnight (cuz Disneyland closes apparently). We thought that was bad enough. Dinner was practically served at breakfast time!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Glad they're back. You have some serious attention due to all of you.

jenianddean said...

It's nice to get the parents back and get things back to normal. At least you had a good sitter.

It's really nice to haf a good sitter. It was good of yoo guys to let yoor beans haf some time to demselfs. Our sitter sleeps in da beans bed when he is here and we all sleep wif him cuz he leaves da door open...not like daddy who closes us out!

We're glad your 'rents had a good time, but it's better when they are back to keep the bed warm for you.

Hate to admit it but people are good.

Kaltsas Kats said...

Our humans like to think that we sit by the window and wait for them when they leave but we cause trouble while they are gone and just keep going to check to see if they have come back.
