Hubby nicknamed our pup (Becker) Chewy… I’m sure it’s self explanatory, he chews a lot, not as much as other labs thank goodness! He looooves stuffed animals, and blankets -chewing them and eating them… And he wonders why he is sick today! Stop eating blankets. He’s lucky he has his mama and dad to snuggle between on the couch lol literally he’s alternated his head on daddy’s lap and as soon as I began telling Jaz about how he was sick today, he instantly became the mommy sick! LOL ah I love him he’s been the perfect addition to the family.

The little things, simple and love!

It’s amazing that we have lived here almost a year, exactly a month away actually from the 1 year mark. With each passing day we become more comfortable and adjusted to living here. The little things that is, like how we have things laid out or organized, where we keep this or that and yesContinue reading “The little things, simple and love!”

A new summer look! They’re growing up too fast…

These kids make me smile so much! Yeah everyday isn’t all rainbows and unicorns but it’s pretty fricken awesome! The boy was stoked to have daddy pick him up after school… It was hubby’s last day of school so they were both actually excited to have some time just for the boys. The miss andContinue reading “A new summer look! They’re growing up too fast…”

When I hear this I think of you

When I hear this I think of you

The other evening while sitting outside with the kids by their playset (see previous pic) I beard this faint jingle, a jingle that will always be remembered of our dog Elwood, for days after he had passed I heard this jingle, always of 2 tags on his collar. When hubby, my dad and brother built the playset shortly after Elwood got a new collar, this is where his old one stayed. Even when we moved hubby made sure that when it was built the collar got put back on, we still had Elwood at this time.

Sitting there the other evening hearing this jingle brought me back so many memories and also reminded me that he is still always with us and watching over. The kids still talk of him and mention they miss him but that he’s up in heaven watching us.

While out there with the kids and Beck I had to take a moment to capture this piece of him. That will still always be a piece of us! Even if he was only here with us at this home for two days.

RIP Elwood… ❤

Our kids will have a new adventure! (with a twist of change)

A few days ago I posted about a decision hubby and I had to make about our kids, something that very much would be life changing for them, but would also make things easier for our family. We have made the decision to change schools. Since moving to our new home we knew there wouldContinue reading “Our kids will have a new adventure! (with a twist of change)”

Let the Soccer Season Begin!

The kids started soccer last week. Our boy is playing with the “big boys” this summer. Its going to be a learning curve for him but we know he is up to the challenge. His personality is showing much more, he is very much like both his dad & mom reserved, yet when he feels comfortable heContinue reading “Let the Soccer Season Begin!”

What I love about Sunday

Sunday. A day of rest. A day to be spent with your loved ones. I typically do spend a longer amount of time in bed in the morning, it is awesome that the kids now sleep “in” but its still nice to relax in bed after waking up, not necessarily sleeping but resting. Listening toContinue reading “What I love about Sunday”
