Sunday Morning Tradition

While Ashley was growing up we made sure we ate dinner as a family as much as possible ... even while her ballet schedule was crazy and while I was taking college night classes. We felt that a family dinner was important. Time to catch up, make sure things are going smoothly, share silly stories and just have some normalcy in sometimes a crazy world! Once we knew Ashley was going away to college we realized family dinners would be no more ... but, we got lucky and Ashley decided to keep her weekend job and come home each Sunday so ... The Sunday Morning Breakfast was re-born -- we had done Sunday breakfast a long time ago when we lived in Georgia ... but for some reason that tradition went away when we moved to Massachusetts. But, it was a great way for all of us to re-connect each week and recount what happened during the week or what was going to happen during the following week. Well ... what would be a FAMILY breakfast without including Muffin!

Muffin knows it's Sunday because Steven and I sleep a little later, Ashley is home (like she is now for summer) or has just gotten home, and for some reason, there must be some VIBE in the air! As soon as Steven leaves, she waits patiently by the front window with her chin sitting on the window pane.

As you can see the skin infection did do a number on her fur.
The vets believe it will start growing back in the next couple of months!
Living with Ashley, Muffin has learned a skill some dogs may never know -- eating off of a fork! Here is a glimpse into the life of Muffin ... SUNDAY BREAKFAST! Have fun watching the video ...

While it may not be the MOST exciting video of all time ... it is a FAMILY tradition and simply special! Also, you can see that Muffin is healing and that is a VERY good thing!
