Starting today...
This blog will be taking on a slightly different twist. From an all-about-Gracie-type blog to a day-in-the-life-of-Gracie's-family-type blog (that's a lot of hyphens) with a twist of humor. So starting right now I have a couple little stories to tell. The first being all-about-Gracie. Monday night I decided Gracie needed a bang trim. So I got out the scissors and asked her to sit really still while I gave her a little trim. I promised her that I'd give her "treats" if she sat real still, and she did. So we went downstairs, I grabbed a few candy corn (yes - by some miracle we still have Halloween candy) and gave them to her. She immediately ran with them into the family room yelling "here Bear, here Bear" (sounds like He Be) thinking that the "treats" were for the dog! She sat their so patiently just waiting for treats to share with the dog. That's my girl. I'll post pictures soon so you can see the results of the bang trim. I'm thinking that beauty school may be in my future. They're pretty darn straight and she looks adorable. If I may say so myself.

Second story. So last night at 1:15 a.m. in the morning me and hubby hear the garage door opening at the same time. And since both of us were lying comfortably in bed we knew something fishy was up. So big strong guy proceeds to hop out of bed, run down the stairs and out into the garage without hesitiation. While I hunker down waiting to hear gunshots or some form of a scuffle. I hear said big strong guy yelling at the top of his lungs and panic a bit. Shortly he comes back into the house and tells me to call the neighbors to check their cars. Apparently someone had gotten into his truck (which he mistakenly left unlocked) and stole our garage door openers and then proceeded to open our garage along with our neighbor's garage. Police came, husband put on his pants (because he did run out of the house in his underwear - yelling at the top of his lungs, mind you) and they caught the guys. The police speculate that they were stealing garage door openers and planning to rob people the next day while we were working. Good thing for big strong guys in their underwear who react with lightning speed.

Oh my goodness Chris. That's scary. Big guy in undies shouldn't run out like that. But i'm glad all is ok and the bad guys were caught. You three take care.

Of course I the story about Grace waiting patiently for the treats (which she didn't even know were for HER!) is my favorite (oh how Wren is so not patient), the image of Steve yelling has he runs into the night in his underwear makes me smile! But I am so glad he was on his toes for both you and the neighbors.
