Our first Maddie emergency…yes, already!

Well, we had had Maddie barely more than 24 hours when I had to call the vet in an emergency today around 4:30 p.m. G and I had just come home from running a couple of errands, when G let her out of the crate. Maddie, of course, bounced out and blasted toward me. I

She’s here…our newest baby!

So her name's no longer Bella, and we're not 100% sure she's a Labradoodle (maybe some other kind of Lab mix, or maybe she is a Labradoodle?), and she's not 3 years old (she's 2), but this little girl sure is a sweetheart, and we're so happy to welcome her home! Meet Maddie, the newest

The laughs and cries of Little E

That's my cute little daughter "brushing" my handsome but bald (he disagrees…not bald, he says, just short-haired) husband's hair. Too funny! Most days, she really brightens our life. She has such a cute and lively personality, and the best laugh ever. But then there's the hopefully-it's-just-a-phase defiant, grouchy and bull-headed little girl. I have to

Miscellaneous Monday

Hi all! Hope you enjoyed a short Thanksgiving break and are back to your normal routines today. We had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and weekend, but it is good to be back to work today. It helps that I've been playing with pictures all morning (for a work project), which is something I really enjoy! Thanksgiving

A mommy-mortifying moment

I have been collecting my stories into a project I'm recently obsessed with, and I came across this one in one of my many binders of notes. It made me laugh, so I wanted to share. Ah, the joys of motherhood! Enjoy! By the way, E was only one year old at this time, and

Mom’s home…and my newest project

Thanks to everyone for your e-mails and phone calls about Mom. She's home now (came home late Thursday evening), and seems to be doing OK. Even after five days of test after test in the hospital, we never did get any clear answers as to what caused the "event." But we should hear the results

Happy Veterans Day!

To anyone who has served in our armed forces, a great-big "thank you" today! As much as we love to complain about how "bad" we have it right now (the economy in the toilet, gas prices that were at record highs just a few weeks ago, etc.), let's all take time to remember that we

A run through the Outback

So here's what Chad was doing on Saturday morning (while I was freezing my tail off cheering him on and taking photos): Don't kill your eyes or grab the magnifying glass (Mom!). Here's the journaling (and, as always, you can click on the image to enlarge it): For me, it’s scrapbooking, but for Chad, his

Another layout…homecoming

I know I already shared these pictures, but I just finished the layout tonight. Thought I'd share it, too, for those of you who are like me and never get bored when looking at scrapbook layouts! (And if you're not one of those people like me, and you do get bored, forgive me!) Here's the

Witnessing history

I am just in awe of the moment I have just witnessed. Senator Barack Obama has been officially projected to be the next president of the United States of America. It helps that I voted for him and was decided on him for the past several months. But whether you voted for him or not,

What does your Tooth Fairy pay?

Does anyone care to share what the going rate for the Tooth Fairy is in your neighborhood? She should be coming to visit our older child in the very near future, and I want to make sure she doesn't cheap out on him! :o) (Congrats, Bud, on your first loose tooth!)
