Welcome to the family, Mia!!!

Here she is.................. We brought our newest member of our family home, yesterday.
Lauren picked out her name. Anyone want to guess where she got the name from?
Princess Diaries, her favorite movie. Of course, Mia has a pink glittery collar, but she has to grow a little more. Lauren picked that out too!

She has been a joy to watch. Mia is very outgoing as well. She nuzzled up to Sparky right away. And follows us every where. If we leave the room, she cries for us. What a little sweety! Zoe is very curious about this little girl. I think they will soon be playing together. As far as Buddy goes, he is a 87 pound knuckle head. We will have to watch him very carefully so he doesn't crush her. EEK!

She found one of my baskets and loves to sleep in it. Hopefully she will opt for her kitty condo soon.

Great Wolf Lodge

We were able to all have time away for a little fun. We loaded up the truck and went up to the Lake. We spent 3 days at the Great Wolf Lodge. I think George and I had as much fun as the kids. I have to admit.... Getting up and going into the water at 9:00 in the morning was a bit much for me, but Lauren was not going to miss out on any fun. Josh was the only smart one, he slept in. :o)

Spring Gymnastics Show

Beginning of this month, Lauren was in a Spring Show for gymnastics. All of Heather's Studio performed. All the girls did a wonderful job!

Last Day of School

Yesterday was the last day of school. YIPEE!!!!!!
Josh and Lauren could not wait. Staying up late and sleeping in, is what they have in mind. But to mom, it means getting organized and cleaning up this house. But most importantly being with my two kiddos. I LOVE spending time with them.

What A Great Guy!

On Tuesday, instead of Josh picking Lauren up at school in the car, Josh and Buddy walked there to get Lauren. Lauren has been asking Josh since the beginning of school if they could walk sometime. She never complained the whole way and had a big smile when she came home. Lauren just loves Josh so much! I think Josh feels the same too........ though he might not want to admit it all the time.
I know I have said it quite a few times, but, George and I are truly blessed with our two wonderful kids!
