Emily is 7 years old!!!

She is growing up way to fast!!  We celebrated with cake and ice cream while we were at Granny and Pawpaws a couple of weeks ago. 

She was serving cake and ice cream at her own party!!


We've been talking for some time now about getting a new puppy.  Jeff and I decided we wanted one that would stay on the small side....mostly because I wanted an inside dog this time and while I loved Bailey, he just was too big to be an inside dog.  A small dog will be a bit easier to take camping with us too!  So I've been searching and checking out craigslist.  Last weekend we took the kids to a few places to look at some puppies.  Of course they wanted the first one we saw....and all of them after the first one too!!  We ended up at the same shelter I adopted Lucy and Gidget from.  That's were we found Charlie!  He is a 3 month old Dachshund mix....with some Jack Russell Terrier we think.  So far he is a very good puppy.  He does very well in his crate and has obviously had someone working with potty training.  He wants so badly to play with the cats, but of course they are NOT so thrilled with him!  Gidget is getting used to him and will actually come nose to nose to check him out occasionally, but Jade stays far away and as HIGH as she can get!  He has been very entertaining for us this week.


Scooter time...

We went to visit mom and dad a couple of weeks ago.  They have something we don't....a concrete driveway!  Even better than that....the place next to them is vacant!!  A huge drive to ride bikes and scooters and not have to listen to momma telling them to stay out of the road!!  We didn't take bikes this time, but they had a great time with their new scooters.

Parade pictures

Just some random stuff

So I'm a goof...I think some of the buildings in Dallas are cool looking.

Some of Dallas' finest

Cotton Candy anyone?

Had to have some of the kids too!

Fun at the New Years Day parade!

Jason Castro hitched a ride on our local FOX news station float...we happened to be lined up right next to that float in the staging/line up area!!  I just couldn't help myself...I HAD to have a picture!

Another post with more info and pictures is coming soon!
