There’s always lots of excitement at the Wagner house when you get three children, two parents, one dog and one cat together.
For Easter, we celebrated my dad’s birthday (which is actually April 29th) since everyone was able to make it home to Oelwein.
We got him a coconut flavored, cat-themed cake. The best part was when he blew out the candles and got frosting all over his sweatshirt.
And speaking of cats, my dad gave K.K. her annual shave… poor cat! I’m not sure if she’s hiding on the chair because she’s embarrassed by her hair or because she’s hiding from Cubbie. Needless to say, all of us kids gave my dad a hard time!
Besides chasing K.K., Cubbie’s favorite part of Easter and other holidays has to be the dishwasher. Cubbie learned this trick when he was a puppy from our old family dog. I don’t have one at my house, so Cubbie LOVES this part about Grandma and Grandpa’s house.
As soon as my mom puts the door down, he is ready!
Then it’s time to lick. Everything from plates to silverware, he is right in there giving the dishes a pre-wash!
He always gets food all over his face (gross), but he absolutely loves it. It’s his own special holiday treat.
