I haven't posted pictures of Ryley for awhile, so I thought I would share some of my favorites from the last month or so and tell you a funny story about him this weekend.

On Friday night, we bought the movie Enchanted and decided to have a movie night at home. We heard that it was a cute movie and one that we should have, so in faith we brought it home and got in bed to watch it. However, we started it too late, and half-way into it, we both couldn't keep our eyes open. We loved it, but we were so tired! So we stopped it and agreed to watch the rest on Saturday.

After a much needed good-night's sleep, we woke up Saturday morning (to 6 inches of snow-more about that later) and decided to just finish it before we even got out of bed. It was totally darling and definately another Disney hit, however due to one sweet little song, it left me inspired to start a desperately needed clean sweep. Here is a video of the song, for those of you who haven't seen it...

Cute right? So picture me, in my pj's (ok maybe don't picture that), dancing around our condo, singing my version of that song! Travis was laughing, I was singing and Ryley was jumping around like crazy, thrilled at whatever it was that I was doing. I kept telling him (Ryley) to join in anytime and start helping me, obviously not seriously. Travis was amused, but not enough to join in and help, so I began by myself, happily humming along. Imagine my surprise when 20 minutes later, I entered the room and found Ryley doing THIS:

Gathering all of his toys that were scattered around the room...

Lining them up, one by one, in a amazingly straight line (for a dog!)...

And bringing them to me!! "Them" being: Dinosaur, Hot Dog, Lamby, Hedgie, Froggie, and case you were wondering.

Of course I grabbed my camera and made Travis come look! Coincedence??? I think not. I think he was simply answering the call of the forest animals, obediently responding to my inspiring version of the "Happy Working Song"! For those of you who are thinking that I've just lost my mind, I'm just kidding...I realize that this was just another funny moment, courtesy of the world's cutest dog! Pretty good though, huh??

And just for fun, here is a picture of my dog, sweetly sleeping in the chair he's not supposed can I get mad at him when he looks so cute??? I mean his head is resting on the pillow!! What am I supposed to do with that???

That is a face, impossible to scold, easy to love!! What's a girl to do??

What a cutie! That face is just the sweetest! Don't doggies bring so much joy? I can't imagine not having mine around!
I've been wanting to see that movie, so I may just have to rent it this week. Thanks for the review!

Hilarious!!! This is clearly a dog after my own heart! I LOVE that he lined up his toys.

He is SOOOO cute and I love him laying on the chair. I'm sure he is as much a child to you and Dawson is to us. :-)
