OK, it’s not really; I was just trying to get your attention! It is true that the Momz is gone on her annual Black Friday shopping trip, a two-day trip with “the girls”, but they weren’t in a frenzy or anything. As usual, the crew will be in the capable hands of the Dadz while she’s gone. We’ll just be up to our usual craziness and silliness!
Dadz did get kind of an early Christmas gift though, so I’m afraid he might be distracted a little bit. He really likes his new toy. We call it a toy, but it will be doing important work around the farm, like getting rid of our brush piles and covering our garden with wood chips for the winter, to help enrich the soil for next spring’s planting.
Maybe while he’s busy with that, I’ll do some stuff around here to help the Momz out while she’s gone. Even though she doesn’t have a job outside of the home right now, she works hard around here taking care of us animals, running the blog, and taking care of the farm. It’s the least I can do. Here’s a couple ideas:
Luke needs to learn not to be constantly photobombing when Momz is taking photos for our reviews!!
Next up, I’ll work with Sam on her “cattitude”.
Hmmm…that’s clearly not going to be an easy job! Maybe instead, I’ll have Sam show Luke how to play nicely with the birds (hint: that means not chasing them, Luke!).
OK, folks, while Momz is having fun shopping, eating and (psssttt….maybe even drinking some wine!), um, I mean buying us stuff, I’ve got a lot of work to do. Have a fun weekend whether you’re one of those crazy shoppers or not!
OH!! PS….Be sure to be here on Monday when this HUGE giveaway kicks off!! See what we are hoping to get for Christmas, and enter to win these awesome prizes!

I had to stop going to those sales – the people were becoming a little too cray-cray for me. Hope you had fun
We don’t get started very early…that way we avoid a lot of the crazies! 🙂
Oh, that chipper looks like some serious fun! It’s good seeing all of you (well, those of you who weren’t hidden by a big butt).
Heeheehee. Yup, the Dadz sure thinks that chipper is a lot of fun!!

Hope your momz had a very successful shopping trip and good job Cricket! Love Dolly
She sure did, thank you!
It sure sounds like you all are going to be very busy while the Momz is gone!
We might have done a little napping too. 🙂
Wow, Cricket. You sure have a lot on your to do list. Don’t forget to take a break.
We didn’t forget our snack breaks or our nap breaks! 🙂
Huh. Good luck working on Sam’s catitude 😉 At least she gets along with the birds, right?!
I don’t know … Luke’s photo-bombs are pretty adorable – maybe you could let those slide?!
There’s no way to stop him anyway…he just HAS to be the center of attention!
You are right, Sam really is pretty mild-mannered. She just doesn’t like to do her job of posing for photos very well. 🙂

Have fun shopping, I went out today as well
It was fun, wasn’t it? 🙂
The Island Cats says
Your mom is very brave to go out and spend 2 days shopping. We think you all have the better idea. 🙂
She’s exhausted when she comes home! If we’re going to be exhausted it will be because of extra ball playing or a long walk. 🙂

Cricket u r just too sweet! Helping your Mom! BTW, is that a canvas print of you and Luke on the table? It’s really nice! Leave it to the young ‘uns to photo bomb us seniors! Ducky tries to do it to me all the time! Love, Shadow
Younger siblings can be such a pain, can’t they, Shadow? Oh well, what are we gonna do? They can be good company sometimes too.
Monika & Sam says
Here’s hoping your mama has a pawfect shopping outing with her friends. We know you’ll watch over the farm with help from your dad. Woof…woof. Please tell him, I’m so jealous of his new toy. 😊
It’s a pretty nice toy, huh? We did good holding down the farm….no worries for Momz!
we wish your mama a happy day and many treasures!!! but maybe it is the same like here the lames black furryday ever… the mama found nothing by now…. either she is sick or this black furryday is really a black day…
What? What happened to your Mom’s black Friday? It was pretty good here! We hope she ended up finding something in the end……
