This is my family? Really?
Where I'm accepted.... amused.... embraced.... loved.... no matter what?
Ok then, they are mine. No one else can have them. I sure hope they know what they have gotten themselves into!
Queenie Jeannie just gave me the coolest award; and "I big red puffy heart your blog award"! I can't believe it; I'm SOOO excited! This is my first award and from such a great person!!! WHOA! I just love her blog. I just adore her! She is the best! I'm not even kissing up because she already gave me the award....so there! Anyway, to my friend.... Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I'll cherish it always!
Little prince, I never knew just how much I could love someone until I held you in my arms. I knew I loved you before that day, I could feel it everytime you moved in my belly when I spoke to you but.... when I held you, and looked into your eyes.... the immediate, unbreakable, forever connection. It was incredible. It was true love at it's core.
You are my son, my love, my life. You are everything I could wish for, and more. You are kind and gentle, determined and strong willed, intelligent and inquisitive. You are supportive and sincere, generous and compassionate, captivating and hysterical, adorable and delightful, talented and confident, thoughtful and sweet. Most of all, you are lovable and loved.
The world is full of wonderful and amazing gifts awaiting you. It is all yours for the taking, and you will make a difference. Because you, my son... my prince, are able to do whatever you set your mind to. This world is yours.
You are 8 now, and so much of your own person but so much my little baby boy.
I look at you now, with your big amazing eyes and listen to you laugh, and I am so proud.
Welcome, our new puppy! He is simply adorable and everyone has accepted him into the family like he has been here the whole time. Buckeye (named after Brutus and the Ohio State Buckeyes) was born 11 weeks ago and is 1/2 Irish Jack Russell, 1/2 English Jack Russell. He is a big time cuddle bug and too cute for pictures! Our oldest dog, Jake... has decided to be Buckeye's protector. He always has a watchful eye on Buckeye and let's him snuggle up to him when he's sleepy. Our middle dog, Tag is too excited for words (or barks). He is looking forward to having someone that can keep up with him in the yard. Our two cats, Meow and Bubbie.... well, let's talk about those two later; they haven't quite made up their minds yet. Now, if you want to talk about the humans in the house.... we are smitten; totally head over heals in love.

So, once more.... that #$@% car of mine.... is dead.
What a lovely car I have; a beautiful wine color..... new(er)..... comfy as all get out.... and now, dead. It's lovely, in my driveway.... un-useable.
I ride on a vanpool to Denver from my home, and get up at 0:dark:30. I get my drowsy self ready, and all cozy in my coat, gloves, and scarf.... head out to my car (that beauty) and press my automatic key opener; nothing. I assume at this point, it's the opener right? Good thought? Battery in there must be warn down.... now, I fumble around to see my key in that pitch black and finally get the door open. Get in, and go to start the car; nothing. Now the key is stuck in the ignition and the gear shift won't move. OH JOY! Just what I want to deal with at 5:30 in the morning..... I run in, and get my all problem solving hubby, who runs out with his workout shorts and tshirt to determine - amazing enough - it's dead. Weird.... Well, by now I've missed my van and it's not like I can drive my beautiful envoy to Denver, since I can't even drive it down my driveway.... let alone get my keys out of it! I guess I'll just stare at it for now. What a beauty.
I went over to this great little site, crafting in laymons terms.... they have some really cute products and they also happen to be having a contest for a giveaway. It's a $25 gift certificate towards their products, and like I said previously... they've got some really cute products. Check out the thank you and birthday cards! Too cute! Anyway, head on over and see for yourself.
So, I just went to sunshineandlemonade's blogspot and she has an amazing contest... It's 10 weeks of winners; seriously... 10 weeks! Can you imagine?! It's like Oprah's "favorite things", but it's not.... it's Kats favorite things! Take a trip over there and check it out.....
