Ollie's Birthday Party

We grilled out and made home made ice cream and sno cones for Ollie's birthday. It was a lot of fun!

Well, Nanny and Papaw gave all four Patterson kids a sno cone maker. Van and Petey opened it as soon as they got there.

With lots of different flavors.

This is our dogs running in the snow this winter.

Both of our puppy dogs escaped out of their outside kennel yesterday afternoon and ran away... they still have not returned. The kids and I drove all around our neighborhood looking for them. They have run off before, but they have been back long before now. We have not heard a thing from the dog pound. This is very sad and I hope that they are rained all night last night. Petey told me he had a bad dream that somebody took them :( ......
