So here is the newest edition to our family. I have a terrible addiction to puppies, Lets just say she is #4 puppy in the last 2 years that I have gotten. We have our beagle still who is a great dog, but I wanted an inside one and I'm allergic to them so, I finally found one I can have we named her noodle, and she is a Llasa Poo. She will only get to be about 12# so she will stay small, thank goodness. She is so stinky cute and of course the kids love her. Lucy can't focus on anything all day but the dog. Talmadge gets frustrated she follows him around bitting and playing with his ears.....if he would just walk he wouldn't have that problem :)
Sometimes I think what was I thinking it really is like having another child around. But she is a keeper this time, even Scott really likes her for being a tiny know how that goes most guys like big dogs.............. I love her.

Oh Christmas Tree.....Oh Christmas Tree

We had alot of fun this year decorating the Christmas trees.......yes that was trees, I'm not sure what I was thinking with Lucy, Zoie and Talmadge the constant grabbing, pulling, and breaking never seems to stop. I thought it would be a great idea to do my pretty tree upstairs (I always wanted a "pretty" tree) Then we would do the fun one downstairs and let the kids have there way with it. Well good idea until we realized A-I'm not always downstairs to monitor whats taking place and B-I can't escape the constant "no don't touch the tree" and having to physically remove Talmade all the time. Where ever we go he has to have the tree.
So far between my kids namely Talmadge, and some cousins only 6 bulbs have been broken so far, the bottom of the tree is really bare now.

Scott's beautiful bow tieing skills at making the tree topper, the tree was too big it wouldn't fit my angel so we had to emprovise, it didn't turn out to bad. We decided to go with black and silver ornaments with a touch of red, it was so pretty and it took 1300 lights, I kept having to go back to Ace Hardware and buy more while Scott was stringing them on. We had a great time doing the trees and getting Christmas set up around our house, it's so exciting the girls are old enough to be really excited and helpful.

I love Christmas and the smell of pine in my house.

Happy Late Birthday Zoie

So for those of you who thought I forgot this firecrackers birthday I did not. I have been so busy and just haven't gotten around to posting her pictures and her birthday fun.
Here she is in all her glory this girl threw up so much as a baby, I thought something was wrong with her, this is how she looked most of the time as a baby due to the projectile throwups.

Nope nothing has changed from this picture, this girl came out kicking and screaming and is still the very same today. She lets you know when she is happy and or mad, and has no problem letting you know these things. She is so funny and has such a great vocabulary it's hilarious to listen to her talk and the dialect she uses with her sister.
These two are best friends and I wouldn't have it any other way. The fighting sometimes triumphs the love but all in all they really are each others very best friends.

We are so glad that Zoie is part of our home, we have been blessed with such a sweet spirit and I'm so greatful to Heavely Father who has intrusted her to my care. I learn so much from her and she shows me such unconditional love, I want to be a better mother for my children so they can grow and learn to be charitable and more Christ like. Children truley are special spirits of our Father in Heaven. I love my kids!!!!!!!
Happy #3 Birthday Zoie

Grandma this is for you

Talmadge got lots of fun toys but I think his most favorite was the huge play set he got from Grandma Lashmett. Not to mention the girls and of course my biggest kid of them all dad. It takes up our whole basement play room, and I have just left it up. All the cousins come over and they have a blast downstairs in the "fort". Talmadge loves hiding and crawling as fast as he can through the tunnels trying not to be caught by the monsters.......Thanks Grandma and Grandpa we love it.

Birthday Cake Time

Wow I'm really behind the ball this last week. It has been busy 2 birthdays, a new puppy and lots of entertaining and Christmas shopping. Here are some pictures of my baby who refused to get down and dirty with the oversized birthday cupcake. It could be a result of him still not feeling well with his ear infections, we still had a great time.
