Wild Turkeys

Look who came strolling by the yard the day after Thanksgiving.

We've seen them before, but there were a lot more this time. Kevin counted 22 of them! They survived Thanksgiving!

The Dogs

For the longest time I wanted a beagle just like Trixie which is Jake and Megan's dog. So we looked and we found a 3 year old beagle at the local shelter. She was a little bigger than Trixie, but seemed sweet. We brought her home and named her Ruby. She was fine at first, but got sick and she just continued to get sicker and sicker. We spent quite a bit of money at the vet's office trying to get her better, but ended up running out of money before we could get her well. We took her back to the shelter so she could get the care she needed. I felt so guilty and sometimes still do. We waited a little while and then I found a dog on Craig's List.

Her name is Paisley and we brought her home on August 17. She was around 4 months old at the time so we'll celebrate her birthday on St Patrick's Day next year. We got her from a rescue and she is a perfect fit for our family. She's pretty smart too. We've already taught her several tricks which she will perform in succession to get a treat. She is full of character and even has an adorable underbite. We aren't sure exactly what else she is besides beagle.
The above pictures were mostly taken right after we got her.
And then her adult teeth grew in....see the underbite?
The following pic was taken yesterday. Paisley and Trixie have become good friends!

I had to post this picture too!
Trixie LOVES the wood burning stove. She does not like being cold.
That's all for this post. I've got one more too!
Have a good day!!!


I took these pictures over a week ago while the guys were watching football. They're San Diego Chargers fans! Can you tell? Well, Kevin and Jake are anyway. The baby has Chargers onesies and also Kansas City Chiefs sleepers. He roots for the Chargers if daddy dresses him and the Chiefs if mommy dresses him.

Glad to see them win last night!

Have a good day!

Gabe and the Bumble Ball Jr

Jake brought out this little Bumble Ball Jr to show it to Gabe. At first it startled him. But he LOVES to be startled. He jumps and then laughs about it.
I think he may just grow up to be a little daredevil!
By the time I got my camera for a video clip, the newness had worn off a bit, but he still liked it a lot.

Video Clip is not cooperating.....will try again later!

I think he needs a big one of these for Christmas! What do you think?

Gabe and the Green Monkey

Aunt Alli and Uncle Brian got this green monkey for Gabe before he was even born. But he has just recently discovered it.

I think he loves it!

Just Call Me the Coupon Queen!

I gotta say I use coupons on a regular basis on my trips to the base commissary. But this has got to be my record! No double coupons here either!
Sure makes it worth all of those hours of clipping and sorting.
Hope you're having a blessed day!

My Little Punkin'

I took these pictures on Monday.
I can't believe he's already 3 months old.

Isn't he the cutest?

My Husband Rocks!
Kevin is the best Grandpa.
He holds Gabe and plays with him whenever he gets the chance.
