Weather report

Snow.....that's what I see when I look out my front window. What the heck? A few days ago it was 80 degrees, today it's 34. Thankfully it's melting as fast as it's coming down.

blog roll

Check out the blog roll to the left......lots of other cool blogs by fellow mommys.


Sorry for the lack of pictures this week. Daddy has the camera. We'll make up for it next week. :)

The sniffles.....

That's what we woke up with today. Jacey has the sniffles. So I gave her some medicine and she's snuggled up on the couch under a blankie watching George. (Curious George for those of you without little ones) Phoenix has started to get raspy during the night again so I've started her back on her breathing treatments. Knock on wood, Jazmin is ok. Just the normal allergy stuff. I hope this doesn't last long. :(

Happy Birthday PapaBear!!!

Happy Birthday PapaBear!!!! We love and miss you. Hope you have a great day!!!!!!

Diaper and wipes case

I made this diaper and wipes case for Phoenix. Now I have to make one for Jacey.

My new purse

I'm not normally a paisley girl but I found this fabric at Joanns and I fell in love with it.

My first rag quilt

Of course it had to be purple. :) Don't look too closely or you'll see all my mistakes. At least I know what to do different next time and Phoenix doesn't seem to mind. :) It's a crib size quilt.

When it rains, it POURS!!!!

This is why we didn't get any yardwork done this weekend.


Here he is!!! Isn't he cute???? Don't mind Daddy's's hard to get 2 dogs to look at the camera at the same time. :)

Guess what????? It's a BOY!!!

Finally, after 3 girls....we're finally having a BOY!!! Dog that is! :D (Someone please pick my mother up off the floor.) Yup, we've got Gizmo a playmate. His name is Sammy and he's a shitzu too. He's black and grey and about 2 years old. We pick him up later this morning. I can't wait!!!!!

Why I love my dh....

Because he is currently in New Mexico buying me fabric. Yup, that's right. :) He had a job in New Mexico and he happened to drive by a Hancocks fabric store that was closing so he stopped. All the fabric was 60% off so he bought me some!!! He's so sweet! And all of this with no prompting from me. :D

Too quiet

I should have known something was was way too quiet. This is what I found when I went into Jacey's room. "Made pretty momma" she said. Oh well, at least it wasn't on the walls.

And here is Jacey when I told her not to draw on her things. And yes she dressed herself today. Hey, at least her shorts and her socks match! :)

Jazmin's new obsession

This is the book series that Jazmin is currently in love with. Junie B Jones. She's got 7 of them and working toward some more. She also likes Katie Kazoo. She loves to read!!! :) I couldn't be happier!

A finger sucker

When she can't find her binky, her fingers work just fine.
Ya, I'm cute and I know it!

Hmmm, what can I get into?


Jacey being silly......yes, those are halloween vampire teeth that she somehow got from Jaz......silly girl!


I hate shots. :( I took Phoenix to the dr today for her 2 month check up. She weighs 10.8 lbs and is 23.5 inches long. 75th percentile for both! She got 3 shots and an oral vaccine. She handled it like a trooper though. She's quietly resting in her bed right now. The true test will be when she wakes up. Cross your fingers that she's not crabby!!!

Eventful weekend

Why is it that when you want to take some time and relax, maybe go to the park and have a picnic, maybe find some ducks to feed at the pond.....things never work out the way you want them to. What we thought was going to be a relaxing weekend turned into a labor intensive sweat fest. Our neighbor decided that saturday was the day that he had to finish tearing down the fence between our two properties. And of course we couldn't let him do it all by himself, we had to help. :) So we tore down the fence, drilled new holes for posts, set the posts in concrete and heck while we're at it lets rip up our cracked up patio and level the piles of dirt in the backyard that were left over from some old plumbing work. When all was said and done my dh and the neighbor hauled just shy of 3 tons of concrete to the dump. Now when I look out into my backyard I no longer see a cracked up patio. I see mounds and mounds of dirt and sand that will hopefully one day turn into a nice green lawn. Maybe even a new patio one of these days.
