A nice start to the year :)  
We just got back from a nice New Year's dinner at my Mom's house. Each year it's become a tradition to order Chinese food and head over to my Mom's house to spend the evening with her and her neurotic fuzzy dog, Yuki. :) We had a lot of fun and ate WAAAY too much food - and ended up taking home so many leftovers! I think our healthy eating plan needs to begin soon before I have to buy a whole new (bigger) wardrobe!

The fireworks are thankfully all over and Sydney is back to her normal self. :) She always has a bit of stress whenever we visit Yuki dog, but thankfully since they just saw each other a week ago, they weren't too rowdy tonight. Surprisingly they even sat still long enough for us to take some pictures. :)


We were greeted by my Mom and a VERY hyper (but cute) Yuki dog.
I love this picture... Yuki looks like a gigantic fuzz ball here. :)


Sydney was a little tired after being chased by Yuki all evening and wasn't
really in the picture taking mood. :(


Yuki, on the other hand, was all smiles. :) I think this is the first photo
I have with her where she doesn't look completely deranged. ;)


My goal all evening was to get a photo of Yuki with her ears up.
She looks so much cuter that way (and a lot less neurotic.) :)


And after many, many tries we were finally able to get this photo with everyone in it.
It's just such a shame Sydney wasn't looking at the camera!!


Tomorrow Mark & I are visiting friends and then I'm taking Mark out to lunch to pay off a debt I have for losing an "American Idol" bet with him last year. ;) Hope you're all having a wonderful 2006 so far!

Awww, thanks! :) Yuki was unusually fuzzy that day! She normally is, but I think she just came back from the groomers. :)

awwww Yuki and Sydney look so soft :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 07:59 am (UTC)
Oh they are!! Especially Yuki this visit! She was so soft that I kept wanting to pet her!

I'm SO sorry we didn't get a chance to get together this year, Andrea!! :( So many things were going on while you were here! :( I hope I'll get to see you nxt year if you come for a visit!

Great pictures! Yuki is so fuzzy!!!! Looks like a cotton ball. :D
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:00 am (UTC)
Haha!! She does! She seemed extra fuzzy this visit... I mean she's pretty fuzzy to begin with, but last night she looked extra "cotton ball"-ish! ;)

Awww, thanks Sue. :) Yuki is so full of energy that we really can't tell what she looks like for the first hour or so of our visits... all we can see is a fuzzy white streak dash by. ;) And Chinese food is my favorite!! :D

Wonderful photos Sheri! :) I always love seeing pictures of Sydney - she's such a little doll (and you guys too of course!).

Is Yuki an American Eskimo?
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:06 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks so much, Deb!! Hope you had a happy new year!! :)

Yuki is actually a Japanese Spitz. :) It's kinda hard to tell from the photos, but she's actually pretty small (she looks gigantic next to my Mom though, since my Mom is only 4'10") :D

What a neat sounding breed. :) I've never heard of it before. She's very pretty.

I love these!! Your mom has the most adorable smile!

That's funny about trying to get a pic of Yuki with ears up -- I never thought about that before but I bet it's hard to do!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:08 am (UTC)
Heehee! Thanks, Rita! My Mom actually hates taking pictures! She probably hates the fact that she paid money to send me to photography school since each time we see her, I have to take tons of pictures. ;)

It was SO hard to photograph Yuki with her ears up!! When she gets excited, they fall down... and whenever I got out my digital camera and called her,... she got really excited. :P

I'm glad to hear that the year started in such a nice way for you. :) And thanks a lot for sharing the photos. I really love them and especially the last one with all of you. You all look great, even if Sydney did not look at the camera. Yuki looks so soft. Is it much work to brush her?

Hope you have a nice day. Big *hugs* to you, Sheri. :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:10 am (UTC)
My Mom used to have such a hard time brushing Yuki because she has SO much fur and Yuki just hated to be brushed! So now my Mom takes Yuki in to be groomed once ever three weeks and ever since she's been taking her in, Yuki looks so much fuzzier. :)

Hope you're having a nice week, Sabine!! Big *HUGS* to you and your fuzzy babies. :D

Heehehehee cute doggies!!!! Fuzzy ones too.
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:11 am (UTC)
Ah! They were SUCH a handful that night! ;) It was SO hard to get them in the same picture, but thankfully we were able to (even if Sydney looked like she wanted to squirm out of it!!) ;)
