All dogs go to Heaven...

So my friend asked me last week if we would "puppy sit" her Yorkie dogs while she was in Montana and we jumped at the chance.
I looked at the "empty calender week" and thought to myself "this will be perfect, I won't need to plan anything because the kiddos will be quite content playing and taking care of three little pups and their mom.
Well it is day #2 and my kiddos wake up pinning for these cute puppies. They are so attentive and sweet when handling them and they can't get enough of these little fur balls.
I have wondered as I put the puppies back in their crate and they immediately snuggle up to go to sleep if we have worn them out TOO MUCH??
Needless to say my children have been so happy and obedient because of the puppy situation that I truly do believe : ALL DOG GO TO HEAVEN... for how happy they make children.

Samantha Jane turns 1!!

Happy Birthday Samantha Jane
July 23, 2010

Where does the time go?
I feel like summer has just begun and we have already had one birthday one anniversary, Camp Alma, Girls Camp, youth conference, Holidays, and now my sweet Sam turned one.

She is such a joy and blessing to our family. She loves to think that she is "BIG", as she totes behind her older sister and brother. She has a teasing personality and is also sweet and mellow until you cross her (don't think about taking a toy/treat from this child). And then she pushes and squeals until she gets her point across.
She has ZERO teeth, Yes NONE!
But that hasn't stopped her from eating everything her heart desires. Right now her favorite things to eat are:
She never grew accustomed to baby food and would rather starve than actually eat any of it. So at a young age she ate table food. And has never looked back.
She loves to snuggle and give hugs and kisses.
She loves the water and can't find even the smallest puddle to dabble in.
She has gorgeous brown eyes and incredibly long eyelashes.
She is dainty and sweet with a side of spice.
We love her so much and have enjoyed seeing her grow. She is the only one of my children who doesn't need a nap.
She likes to tease her mom and dad and she is determined only when she decides it is something she wants to do.
I can't wait to see what this next year brings.
Love you Samantha!!

Cowabunga Bay!
She loves corn on the cob.
She loves to smile for the camera.
