So I guess I forgot to tell everyone what happened in my puppy search!

Well I guess reality got the better of me and I realized that maybe just maybe I was taking on a bit more than I could possible handle. So I will be waiting on the dog search for a while. I will be watching my newest nephew Theron starting February 2nd and then I'll have 4 children to deal with... so adding a puppy into the mix might make me a little crazy, A LITTLE!?

So I'm not as crazy as I once thought, although some days I feel as if I'm going to jump off a bridge! :)

It's cold

But we have to get outside... fun day at the park!!!

Inauguration 1st

Are you watching this Inauguration?

I can say that I don't think I've seen one as long as I've been alive. This one is historic and I'm looking forward to it. Every time I think about the meaning of what is about to take place I honestly get shivers. This year, (well 2008) while the elections were going on I was really involved. Mike and I would discuss and talk about what we thought... and the outcome was what I had hoped for.

At this point I don't think it really matters if this was the person you voted for... it is what it is and it's a HUGE thing. I'm excited, yet nervous about what changes are in store. I really really hope that Obama is able to help us mend the hole that has been dug.

Tomorrow starts a new day!

Holy crap... My son wanted to go to the Monster Truck show in Tacoma, but one of his grandmothers was unable to take him. He was upset but my mom and I decided we would do something this next weekend while Mike was in Eastern WA. hunting. My mom sent me a text this morning. "A 6 year old boy died while attending the Monster truck show..."

WHAT!? My 6 year old was supposed to be there, that could have been my six year old.

Honestly I'm speechless and sad! How could that happen? And as sad as my son was for not being able to go, I'm happy he didn't and he's still alive!!!

Oh my golly...

I have never been prouder of my son...

Today while opening his backpack to go through his papers from school... I stumbled upon a note from the principal (ARE YOU SERIOUS). He got an award, I started crying.

He got a QUALITY WORK award for the category of writing. His work will be displayed on the bulletin board outside the office for the next month.

The only words I have is WOW! That boy amazes me and makes me prouder and prouder everyday!

Finally, 3 months late...

I took Annalise to her 12 month well baby check up... 3 months late. She is weighing in at 24lbs. She is in the 75% for weight and height and she has a big head. They tell me she is as smart as a 19 month old is, she is very very smart!

She is good and healthy and we are happy about that. She did however get 5 shots (poor thing) and we are officially going to be trying to kick her from breast feeding... although she is one strong willed baby I don't know how this will go!

I may be getting a puppy... I'm excited, we'll see what happens. I'd say what I'm looking at but I'll keep that to myself until I get it(if I get it). It's between two I found and I'm waiting for a response in email from one and I'm calling the other tomorrow. Either one is as cute as pie and I think I'm S-T-U-P-I-D for even wanting or doing this. Hi I have a 6 year old, a 1 year old... I watch my 2 1/2 yr old nephew and will be watching my 1 month old nephew soon!


Happy New Year!

Here are some pictures from New Years Eve. We went to Tiana's house and had such a great time. Everyone had some drinks, the boys played some Rock band... and Mike pretended he was the best singer ever!!!

I cannot wait to see what 2009 has in store!
