Camper Jake

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


Well yesterday, Jake went off to Church camp. He got to go with his best friend Alek Ruiz. Our church goes to El Porvenir Christian Camp in New Mexico. Last year was his first year to go, so he was very ready when camp week came this time around. I guess that's a good sign that camp was a positive experience or I guess it could mean he was ready to be away from us. I choose to believe camp is awesome. :) Anyway, I'm not very sad mainly because Church Camp holds a fond place in my heart. I went several years in a row with my church when I was younger and I only have good memories. (Is that where I had my first kiss? hmmm...) Lots of good praise and worship, swimming, late night visits when we were supposed to be sleeping, s'mores on a campfire and lots of mosquito bites. O.k. that last one is not a fond memory, but you get my drift. Anyway, he won't be home until Friday, so I'm sure I'll be counting down the days. Enjoy the pics...............

Now normally I wouldn't write about hickeys but in this case, I think you'll understand. Yesterday, I was holding one of the puppies up close to my neck. It was so sweet, sniffin' around and licking my collar bone. Before I knew it, it started to hurt a little and I couldn't get him off. I had to have my husband get him off because he was trying to nurse and was sucking so hard. Needless to say, I am the proud owner of a hickey on my chest (and it's not from my husband!) Typical Males!!

Having Babies

Saturday, July 26, 2008

Well, although, I have 2 beautiful kids of my own, I am now the proud owner of 6 new Boxer puppies. Our dog Polly had babies 2 weeks ago and they are starting to open their eyes. They are so stinkin' cute. Of course, our human kids thought the whole birth process was pretty nasty and I have to admit, it was. But MIRACULOUS at the same time. Anyone that believes in the Big Bang Theory needs to watch the birth of puppies and the mother instinctively know what to do. Only God can create that!! Anyway, they are still learning and sometimes get each other privates confused for a mothers teat, but we love 'em anyway. It's gonna be hard to see them go......
