Reece’s Party Pictures!

Reece really enjoyed her party but she didn’t want to participate in ANYTHING. I was a little surprised because I figured she would want to show off all her gymnastics moves! She just doesn’t like to be the center of attention AT ALL. Josh is that way and I was when I was her age so she gets it honestly. Once we started opening presents I realized that she had a fever:( So, she probably just wasn’t feeling like partying!

Griffin and Peyton had a blast! In fact, Peyton wants to have his birthday party there next month! :) DSC_1735 Everyone loves the pit!DSC_1829She LOVES me!DSC_1763 DSC_1786 DSC_1813 DSC02371 DSC02261 My sweet little nephew! DSC02331 DSC02348 Happy Birthday to you!DSC02355 xoxo,

2010 Christmas Card

The free Shutterfly card thing didn’t work out for me. I emailed them the first of December and never got a response so I designed our cards myself! I love how they turned out!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Reece’s birthday party is tomorrow! :)

We’re in the process of adopting this little guy…DSC_1707Ok, Ok 90-something pounds is not technically little.

And I say process because it’s been a huge process! HUGE. If you have adopted a human I have a LOT of respect for you right now. Not that I didn’t before, it’s just grown because the process of adopting a dog is tedious and time consuming and nerve wracking. But worth it! We’ve been run through the ringer and apparently we’ve passed ALLLL the tests.

So, his name is Niko. He lives in Georgia…Griffin, Georgia! (that was our first “sign” that he would be ours!) He is going through heart worm treatments right now. :( But, he will be fine.

On Sunday we loaded up the kids and Chippie and made the four hour drive to Griffin to meet Niko. (Griffin loved seeing all the signs in the town with his name on them!) We needed to make sure that he fit in with us. He did and my husband is so happy! He’s wanted another red dobie since Mako passed away and now it’s time. The kids did great on the long drive. I was worried about being stuck in the car for a total of 8 hours in one day but it worked out fine! We watched Toy Story 3 about 57 times, but hey, whatever works! I was honestly amazed at how well my children handled the whole day! :)

DSC_1711Niko is very well behaved and trained! He laid down just like the picture above and had his nails trimmed..didn’t move a muscle! He was super sweet with the kids and kissed me right in the mouth! ha! I’m sure Josh will be his favorite!

Chippie got along fine with Niko, after she made sure he knew she’s the boss! He was actually scared of her and ran and put his head in Josh’s lap! ha! 100 pound dog scared of a less than 10 pound dog!

The week after Christmas the lady from the humane society will meet Josh half way with Niko! We’re SUPER excited!

Bama Belles


Have you seen the new show on TLC?

I’m so embarrassed right now. REALLY!

I missed the first half of the show but I did set my DVR to record the next episode. But I’m pretty sure that I’ll still be hiding under the couch pillows watching it.

TLC picked the most back woods, redneck people they could find I do believe. If you don’t live in Alabama, please know that we are NOT all like that! Most of us don’t wear that much makeup, don’t perm our hair and we wash our hair daily.


Happy Monday!
