A New Tradition!

This is probably the second time we have done this but we hope to continue it and make it a family Christmas tradition. We made Gingerbread houses - well - the boys did. Yes, we bought the pre-packaged, pre-cooked gingerbread house kits with all the frosting and candy you would ever need. Trust me - we tried it once before the other way and I would never do it again. The boys love it. Darren always pairs with Blaze, I with Canon. Pierson just ate the heads of the gingerbread men and ate frosting from the bag - yuck. The boys went to bed with a tummy ache and tried pinning it on my dinner but they knew better - it was all the candy and frosting. I think the boys get better and better each year. So very proud of Blaze - he did it all own his own - aside from putting the walls and roof together. Don't they look great? And edible?


My Baby Blaze turned 6!!!

I can't believe that he is 6 already. It has gone by so fast. He has been such a boy and I love every bit of him. He is so into the snow right now, he actually sleds every single day after school. Thank goodness we live on a mountain. He loves Lego's, loves trucks and tractors, loves guns and LOVES playing the Wii, XBox and Playstation with his Dad. His favorite food is chicken nuggets, loves Airhead candy, has chocolate milk every night before bed and says amazing prayers at night. He is great with his little brother but not so great with his older brother. He is a little bit of a diva when it comes to his clothes and hair but we are working on overcoming that. It usually ends with Darren convincing him that boys don't care what they look like - which hopefully isn't true. Blaze loves sports and will be giving wrestling a try this January - against my will. He is such a sweetheart when he wants to be and is completely independent - which I love. Here is a look back at my sweet little 6 year old!

Growing Up!

I am just amazed at how fast this little thing is growing. I didn't realize until I took this picture that my baby isn't a baby. He looks like a big boy now! Can you believe it? He is a ton of fun but a ton of work! We love him to death.

More of My Babies!

Okay I know all you want to see is pictures of my puppies - I do too! They are getting so cute. They are now walking but look slightly intoxicated. They have opened their eyes and can see when we enter the room. It doesn't matter if they have just been fed or not - they run to our feet as if they are starving. They love to be held and the boys are so glad I have finally gave them permission to hold them - while under my supervision. They are still so small that I worry about them wiggling out of their hands. We weight them each week and each week they have grown 4-5 ounces. The biggest puppy is 18 ounces and the smallest is 14 ounces. I have taken tons and tons of pictures but it is hard to get good ones of black puppies. Any suggestions?

I love these little babies but I am sleep deprived. I hound Tink to be a good mom and feed her babies and I know she doesn't like me for it. I wake up in the middle of the night to make sure she does her feedings. Each time one of them makes the slightest little cry for help - I am up and running into their room. I bring at least one of them to bed with me each night which only makes Darren wish they were leaving sooner. :) We decided to name them while they lived with us so that we could figure out which one we were discussing at the moment. The boys love telling the neighbors their names, their characteristics, their markings, their personalities. It's awesome. This has been such an amazing experience.

No real drama since the birth though - aside from the hole in the wall vet clinic I accidentally took them to to get their tails snipped. We are just happy that they are playful, love to be held, walking around and eating well.

Here are some pictures - most of which I tried taking with one puppy in my hand and the camera in the other. Forgive me!
