Goodness Gracious!

Goodness gracious! Has it been that long since I updated? The little blogger thing is telling me it's been over a month. Whoops!

Momma's job is going full force, she's recruiting day and night almost! She gets home and I barely have time to lick her hair before she and Daddy are off to the gym, and then back to making dinner.

Since it's October now, I think it's time I show you all my awesome Halloween costume:
 That's right, I'm a lobster! It's really tough to find costumes for Corgis, we have such long bodies and short legs. Last year I was Yoda, and the costume went over my neck. I kept tripping over the feet part. It was funny for Momma and Daddy, but they were also sad cause it meant I couldn't wear my costume without falling on my face.

 Momma thinks it looks like the lobster is eating me. Daddy disagrees with her, he thinks I just look like a lobster. I think I look like whichever will get me out of the lobster costume soonest. Don't I look happy here? It should be no surprise I'm a lobster for Halloween, it's Momma's favorite food. I think she might want to eat me! Halp!

 This sideways picture shows Momma's most recent GF triumph, King Arthur Gluten Free brownies! King Arthur is an employee owned bakery older than the United States, and they make the best flour and mixes. They just recently began making GF flours and mixes, and this was Momma's first foray into both making brownies, and making GF brownies.

 Doesn't that look fudgey? It was amazingly moist and rich, so good that all 20 brownies were gone in two days. Momma and Daddy tore through them. You know it's a good mix when Daddy will eat the GF food. Usually it's pretty gross and dry. Don't ask him about the pancake incident.

 Cooking in our oven. Looks yummy!

 Daddy was busy in the last month too, this is his super tasty rueben, with home made Corned Beef and nice tasty bread. He made three of these out of one piece of meat, but I know he pined for more. We have corned beef in the house a lot.

So, I guess that was my month! I'll be better at updating this thing this month! Happy Lobsterween!


  1. You look super cute as a lobster! And all the food looks DEEElish! :)

  2. Why thank you, I take the pictures myself! Momma holds the camera just right and I step on the button!

    The best thing about the lobster costume (according to Momma) is that it velcros around my neck and stomach, so I can't shake out of it no matter how hard I try! This apparently adds to the "Burke looks like he's being eaten by a lobster" thing I have going on.

  3. Hmmmm. Seems like there might be a market out there for making Corgi-sized costumes.
