Uninvited Guest

Last week, Chris and I were watching Monk after the girls had gone to bed. We first noticed something odd when the dogs next door wouldn't stop barking. It went on for quite a while before we started hearing footsteps. On the roof. We listened carefully for a few minutes, then Chris got out the ladder to investigate.

Um, yeah. That would be a raccoon in our chimney. Lovely. Where it's sitting puts it right behind our living room wall, basically sitting level with the mantle.

I'm not a fan.

Chris said he saw another raccoon running away before he caught this picture. We didn't take any action that night and luckily we haven't seen or heard from them since. Let's hope it stays that way!

Thanks again for coming up to Logan for Claire's party - it was very fun for her AND me. :)

that is crazy. It took me a little while to see his head in that picture.
