Our new four legged friend.......

On Monday night we got a new addition to our family, Tarzan!!! He has been my sister-in-laws family dog for a while, but they needed to find him a new home. He kind of has a thing for chickens. He always got out of their yard and attatcked the neighbors chickens. So we said we would take him. I thought it would be good for Roxy to have a friend to play with especially scince there is another little baby coming along to push her more and more aside. So far things have worked out really well. Tarzan and Roxy are adjusting to eachother and love to run and play in the backyard. And for me I love how loud and deep his bark is when someone comes to the door. It would scare any intruder away!!!!

Lots to catch up on!!!!

I have been MIA when it comes to my blogging. We have had computer problems that we finally got fixed, so now I can blog on a regular basis again. We had a lot of changes in the last 5 months. We bought a new house in October and before we could get settled we found out BABY #2 WAS ON ITS WAY! It was a little bit of a suprise to us, but now we couldn't be more happy to have another little one to add to our family. Kennley is so excited to be a big sister.

The results are in WE ARE HAVING A LITTLE...........

First set of stitches!

Our fun day at the park ended up at the Dr Nye's office getting stitches in Kennley's chin! This cute little boy who was Kennley's age came to sit next to me on the park bench and Kennley wanted to follow him, but when she tried to step up on the conctete block she must have tripped and fell face first on the concrete step and smacked her chin. Luckily the cute grandmother and mother of the little boy ran over and tried to help me get Kennley to see if she was okay. By this time she was screaming and blood was just gushing from her chin. My first instinct was to just hold her, but she needed to get to the Dr. The cute ladies ran to their car and got a first aid kit to wipe both of us down. They offered to take us to the Dr so I could sit in the backseat and hold her, but we were not far from her Pediatrician. In order to give her a lidocane shot to numb the area for stitches she had to be papoosed!!! My poor little thing was screaming bloody murder in the papoose, and sweating bullets. My heart ached for her, but I had to keep myself calm inorder to keep her calm. It took about an hour from start to finish, but we made it through her first experience of getting stitches! I did learn one little sweet princess is VERY feisty and STRONG!

Wrapping up July!

Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo! I had the time of my life...thanks dad for taking us!
Kennley did really well sitting there for 3 hours as long as she was entertained with food, which included popcorn, cotton candy, foot long corn dog, and snow cone, LOL!

Happy Birthday to a wonderful Dad/Grandpa!

Girls night at the Gateway's California Pizza Kitchen!

This year we spend the 24th with the King family. We enjoyed a DELICIOUS BBq, and fireworks at Liberty Park.

Our first trip to Pineview as a famiy. We found a nice little spot along the beach that was so much fun! Next year maybe we could add a boat, or maybe that's just wishful thinking, LOL!
