Our mountain house isn't really in the mountains, its on the other side of the mountains. We get in the big green moving box and sit in it FOREVER. It goes up one side of these big mountains, then down the other side. Our mountain house is at the bottom of the mountains just where it starts to flatten out a bit. The nice thing about this, is we get to see the mountains and frozen white stuff right outside, but don't get very much of it actually at our house. When we finally got here yesterday, it as about 40 degrees on top of the mountains, but almost 60 degrees at our house. Mom and I went out and supervised Dad in the back yard as he got the big outdoor tub full of heated water working (why would any one want to sit in that), but it was still a little cold out for me (I didn't have my shirt on), so we went back in.
We all slept really well last night! I snuggled up with Mom and Dad on the bed, and we all stayed really cozy. Dad got up earlier than Mom, I followed him and got some stinky goodness. But I don't like it when Mom stays in bed, so I went in and jumped in her face a few times and attacked her fingers, that finally got her up!
After we got up, I was looking outside the glass, and this furry creature with a little white tail went running through MY BACKYARD! I got so excited I jumped up on the back of the chair, and watched and watched.
But it ran under the fence. There is this big open space behind our fence with bushes and stuff for critters to hide in. Mom says it was a desert cottontail bunny rabbit. It looked about the same size as my stuffed CEC, so I could probably take it on. But Mom says bunnys are nice, and we shouldn't hurt them. We haven't seen any CECs yet, but I thought I'd better say on guard for a while.
