My dad opening his gifts
Dad enjoying his new chair!
Alyson the coolest sister in the world & her very amusing boyfriend bill (seriously he'll have you laughing your butt off in seconds!) they were playing with TC
Jake & Emery I love these guys they are fun to be around & great people ( My big Brother & Sister in law)
I didn't get a picture of my other brother & his wife Lisa but I have some for future posts! But I love them the same even with out a picture!
What a cool Mohawk! He new we did something silly to his hair! I love it! (this was done with sunscreen!)
This is how I frosted the cake,the Messy look.I have seen some wedding cakes done with this look & I really like it & wanted to try it...there is more to it than just slapp'n some frosting on.it was fun! ( please don't mind the mess in the background I hate that!)
This is the finished product. It is "the hill" a few people didn't get it at the party but you read it from the bottom to top like you are climbing a hill...makes sense right!
I had a really good time making this cake for my dad & I am so thankful for him. He is such an awesome guy. Always nice & kind with a smile on his face. He is a good dad & I wouldn't trade him for anyone! He has such an adventurous spirit & is like a big kid sometimes!(on that note all of us kids got him a pass to sky dive for his birthday) he is always helpful & has always been able to fix broken things for me from little girl to a few weeks ago! He even built me a playhouse when I was a little girl it was by far the coolest playhouse in the world because my dad built it for me! Love you dad!

These fish were stuck on the walls. The people who lived here before didn't want to patch the walls so they left them...lucky me right!? I am happy to say ALL the fish like these (yes there were more!) have been relocated to the garage!
Trenton really loved the first bath in the new tub!
Thank you Kenny & Jake for all your hard work! You did great!
Now on to the Puppy!
Robbie & I are usually not into impulse purchases.I think about something for a few days/weeks & imagine what it would look like in the house or what it would be like to use it etc.& then one day when (3 days ago!) I was out looking for new towels for the bathroom (again!) I had the urge to go to Walmart...I HATE Walmart I was actually on my way to Kohl's (where I eventually found my new towels!) when I heard the "urge" again so I reluctantly passed Kohl's & went straight for Walmart. As I pulled in, there was an American bulldog on the corner for sale & I thought it might be fun for Trent to visit her...No he hated her. So as we were walking away I saw a van with a sign that said Shih Tzu Puppies....OK I LOVE shih tzus my brother & Sister in law have two & they are the cutest nicest puppies I've ever seen! So I looked & I fell in love with there last one...she was mine! I called Robbie & asked him to come see her & see what he thought & he fell in love with all 3 lbs. of her too!
*A side note to all of this is that Maddy wasn't really an "impulse"buy.About five years ago when we were first married I wanted a shih tzu puppy & was on the market,if you know anything about these little guys they can be A LOT of money,so I looked & I looked & I found one five states away.We set up the buy & bought the ticket for her to come join us. She didn't pass the health bill to fly so months & months went by & I needed a companion for Robbie's six month Cruise so we "cancelled" our puppy & started on the search for a cat I found one that weekend that I loved, Corrie & she has been my Buddie since day one.Now three days ago I found my shih tzu & brought her home to play with Trenton & Corrie! She has been a fun addition in our family!
Here is Maddy!
Look how little!Trent is really starting to like her.
& something silly!
And that is a long post for ya!Thanks for sticking around!

When I was a little girl we (siblings) would always collect rocks for my mom & she would stick them in a jar in her room by her bed. As I got older(teenage years) I thought it was a little strange for my mom to still have those rocks for so long...until two days ago!
Trent was outside with the big boys ie: his dad, uncle Kenny & grandpa(aka bump).They were having so much fun,he was throwing the ball to Kaity (bumps dog) & playing in the dirt & his daddy even gave him a short ride on one of the 4 wheelers(He LOVED that!)
My rock jar!
Trenton, thank you so much for the wonderful gift.It makes my heart happy! I love you buddy!
