Our Puppy Is Gone

What puppy you ask?

Let me explain. Alonzo (my husband) was never, I say never, willing to entertain the idea of getting a puppy. His thinking was that he doesn't want to do that kind of labor for a puppy. Well a student asked if we could babysit her brand new puppy German Shephard for three days until she could get her home to her mom's in Florida. We of course said yes and our lives will never be the same.

Spirit was such a sweet puppy. She was a little nervous when she got to our house. The kids liked it that way because she was calm and they could pet her. Well the next day she started to warm up to us and little Zo never left the couch anytime she was out. She was so smart. She had already started doing really well with house training. In the days she was with us, she had already started having fewer accidents and using the bathroom on a regular basis when we took her outside.

Don't get me wrong it was work. But I can definetely see why people consider dogs companions. Our house seems so much more empty without her here.

As you can see she won us over. She even started to whimper when it was time for her to go (lump in my throat). She not only won me over,but also Alonzo. He was ready to keep her and we are sure that a dog is in our future.

They Grow Up So Fast

Ok I know Easter is long gone, but we know I'm a little slow at the blogging thing. I'm not going to let that stop me though.

I was nearly in tears Easter morning because all of my children had on their new church shoes...even Ayden.

(yes we could have removed price tags prior to taking the picure LOL)

She was so proud of them and her pretty dress. She kept looking at her feet.

I love it that they are all growing up. They play so well together and the Lord is really giving me grace to enjoy them.
