Mystery solved!!

So the last week or so our puppy has been barking in the evenings as he runs along the deck.  To be honest he NEVER barks so I find it extremely annoying.  I decided he was scared of the dark and left the porch light on for him until bedtime.  He sleeps inside in a crate right by the back door these days.  I figure he would like the view.  (laugh...Dan just did)

Aaaaaanywho...last night he started barking like CRAZY and wouldn't stop even with us shouting at him telling him to stop!  He was waking up the kids when i realize "something" is looking in at us through the patio door and then bolts across the deck!  I freaked of course!  You lie if you say you wouldn't.  Well we decided this thing wanted the dog food.  No problem we just won't leave it out.  Problem solved.

Right - not so much.  Tonight I went out to the garage to run pick Rylee up from Activity days.'s all still a blur but i heard something and then a rather LARGE something ran past my leg and I realized it was a stinken RACOON!  I screamed and screamed and screamed some more!  Then one more time.  Dan chased him all over the place until we heard the dog barking again and Kennedy went to see what was up.  Then she screams bloody murder and she comes running and says he climed a tree and now it's on the deck with the dog.  
The picture above is of a sweet innocent little one.  His creepy cousin was at our house...the one with tattoos and a nose ring.  He tried to lick me!

Sigh...we have to move.
