Sheltie Easter 2013

Mercifully it did not rain as much as they said it was supposed to, so we were spared the ultra muddy conditions I was expecting for this year’s Easter egg hunt!

As usual Auggie’s all “EGGS YEAH” and everybody else is all “derp de der what are we doing?”

Big dog loves this game.


I can’t believe he’ll be two in a few months, mostly because he still acts like a big dumb puppy all the time.

Georgie found an egg!! And Payton’s egg rolling behind her.

Pepper’s all “oh hey guys what’s going on over here?” (Auggie, meanwhile, is off grabbing all the other eggs like nobody’s business. There are no photos because it’s NOBODY’S BUSINESS.)

Payton’s still playing with the same egg. Derrrrr.

Georgie got her egg open to eat the cookie! Yay!

PEPPER FOUND AN EGG! She didn’t know how to open it so I had to help her, but I was very proud of her that she picked it up at all. Then of course she tried to pick up the empty shell like =D =D. No honey… no. It’s okay.

Payton found another egg (he accidentally broke his first one open and was like “!! There’s a COOKIE in here!”)

This started another round of running around with an egg in his mouth. And Georgie has no idea how to play the game either. CHASE PAYTON

Payton discovered the mass amounts of eggs at his 2x2s and was like “wait, what?” He tried to pick up both.

Okay, one more of Auggie hunting.

He loves this game. I should probably do stuff like this more often. I think his eyesight is definitely going because he wasn’t quite as snappy at it this year…

Okay, ONE more… because I hid this orange one by the basketball and it’s appropriate for Auggie…

Payton still derping with his green egg, the other eggs by the weave poles long forgotten.

Everybody’s baskets – Georgie ended up finding THREE, beating Payton’s two (I didn’t count the weave pole one he left behind because Auggie was immediately on it, opened it, and scampered off.) and Pepper only found the one. Auggie’s basket obviously is the overflowing one. =P

Family photo with baskets!

Family photo outtake. Oh Pay.

Another family shot. Georgie was like “I’m done with this (#*!” and kept laying down. Fine, whatever.

Auggie with his basket.

Pepper’s single egg hahaha. Poor dumb girly.

Payton has no idea why he’s so excited. As per usual.

“Squirrel??” Typical Payton.

Baby girly and her three eggs!

The end. Overall it turned out to be a very nice morning to hunt eggs considering one week ago we were getting over a foot of snow dumped on us.

Big snow dump, big photo dump

This had better be the last photo dump of snow-covered shelties until we’re actually in WINTER again.

It was still coming down heavily while we were out playing. Every few minutes somebody had to shake off to prevent themselves from becoming one with the massive snowfall in the yard.

Payton is not sure what’s happening but it’s kind of fun. Or terrible. Blizzards are awesome! Or maybe the worst??

Frosted pup.

Auggie puttering around in the snow.

Georgie is frolicking. But only for a little while. It’s hard to frolick when the snow piles are almost as big as you. Kinda wears you out.

Auggie appears to think there’s something under the snow and he should immediately plunge his face into the snow to discover what’s beneath it.

Pirate Auggie McSnowBeard has made his return! Arrrrr!

See? I told you they had to keep shaking off…

Georgie and Payton are wrestling and racing.

Pepper isn’t amused by this whole thing. What is this crap? It was 60 degrees yesterday!

More chasing from Payton and Georgie…

Georgie getting Auggie in on the fun. I’m pretty sure he was running off to bark at something and she thought he was playing chase…

A very weird mid-shake photo for Payton.



Baby Georgie, taking a quick breather.

This is Payton.

Payton likes it when I throw snowballs at him.

Pepper wanted to get in on the snowball catching too.

Throw it throw it throw it throw it throw it throw it


The kiddos chasing snowballs.


Oh wait, now ready?


Pretty little girl, all frosted from snow!

Auggie would also like a snowball plz.


He didn’t catch the second one, haha.

More from Payton – he’s having fun at least.


Her nails look RIDICULOUS here. I swear they aren’t that bad but she must be all grippy or something when she jumps because they look really bad.

Playing yaaaay~

First picture in which I can tell she’s related to Payton.

Playing doesn’t last very long…


I was trying to take a photo of Auggie and he came up, stuck his chin on my arm, and was like “Hi Mom throw snowball plz.”

But I still got my photo of Auggie.

The end.
It better be. >=|

Just a few of the sheltie crew…

First of all, my boys are quite proper.

QUITE proper.

Also it won’t stop snowing and being cold.

We all hate it.

Uhh… these eyes.

Seriously, what am I supposed to do with this?

For everybody who thinks they want a Payton:

This is totally normal. Expression and everything. There’s a reason he’s the gator. (And Auggie is my shark.)

The very bestest boy. <3
