puppy dogs and...rats?

this is our cute little puppy dog...ryan thought tights are better on heads.





i had to put in a cute picture before i tell my next tale. yes, we have rats. in our ceiling. gross. i don't really want to talk about it, but i want to show you all how awesome my husband is. we've had the exterminator come over a few times and he has found 3 rats in total. But, we started to smell something...well, let's just say, 'unpleasant.'..and couldn't wait for a weekday for the exterminator to come back, so on sunday, ryan braved the attic, the stank, and the droppings...and found our culprit. he is donning what we have now termed his "rat clothes" (including the chairman mao shirt he's wearing...appropriate, wouldn't you say?). Three cheers for Ryan!

If you're wondering why he doesn't look amused that i made him pose for a picture...it's because he wasn't.

Yuck! And I complain about cockroaches! Gives the movie "Ratatouille" a whole other meaning! And 3 cheers for husbands, who boldly go and do the dirty work! :)

Ohmygosh, I have a picture of Alex wearing this EXACT same outfit when we had to remove a dead rat from the back of our stove a few years ago. I knew these guys were clones.
