It was 12 years ago that I visited my friend David in New York. I spent a week with him and his little dachshund, Danny, and I knew that when I got home I would need my own little dachshund. I remember driving down to Buda to pick up him up. He was the smallest of the litter and just so tiny and cute. Kaki was a great dog. I had big plans for us. I was going to get him a girlfriend and name her Felicia, but that didn't happen. It was just him and me for years before I got married. He was always by my side, he snuggled with me in bed at night and he loved to ride in the car. After I got married we moved and he adjusted well to having to share me. Then I had Jesse and he handled that well too. It was when I had Michael that his age started to show. He was starting to get a little grumpy in his old age. Jesse was a little rowdy for him and I knew it would get worse as Michael got older, so Kaki went to live with OMA. Of course I missed him, but he loved it there, he had the other dogs to keep him company and OMA spoiled him.
I am thankful that I was able to spend some time with Kaki on Christmas Eve and we spend an afternoon together a few weeks before that.

Sierra was on the dance team at school this year. Isn't she just beautiful? I look at her and can't believe that she is already so grown up. Where does the time go? They all grow up so fast!
My monkeys, just hangin' around. They have been in gymnastics for over 4 months and they absolutely LOVE it!
Me and My Sweetie celebrating 8 years!

Liz shook up our monthly bunco with an 80s theme. We all did our part to try to revive the fads that made the 80s so awesome. Of course, most of these gals were only babies back then, but don't they look great. Bunco was so much fun and it brought back some wonderful memories! I LOVED the 80s!
sdrawkcaB night at Awana.
A day at the pumpkin patch trying to pick out the perfect pumpkin. It was hard to choose just one picture to share for this outing. They were so cute and so cooperative letting me just snap away.

Septemeber 1st, Labor Day, we caught the last Express Game of the season with Uncle Chad. It started at noon and was over by 2, the fastest game ever I think. Needless to say, it was HOT.
The boys started Awana this year at church. Every week for a couple of hours they get to spend time with their little friends having fun playing games and doing crafts while learning scripture and bible lessons. They have fun theme nights throughout the year. This was goofy glasses night.

Wesley, Sharon and Tasha came to visit from New Zealand. It was the first time Wesley had been home since he left in 2001. It was a wonderful visit and my Grandmother was so very, very happy to see him and his family.
My sweet baby boy turned 3! I can't even believe that he is already 3, it seems just like yesterday I found out that the Lord blessed us with our second miracle baby. We celebrated at home with family.....
We took the boys to the circus for the very first time and they LOVED it! I don't know how high Bello was, but the boys were on the edge of their seats and couldn't take their eyes off him, or the elephants, or the tigers, or the horses, or the acrobats, or the tightrope walkers. It was a great night. And we have the $20 light up swords to prove it!
Graduation day for Jesse. Isn't he just so stinkin' cute? Moving up to the 5 year old class.
