My hubby and I bought this awesome cool bed today for our grandson…He loves it, he has not stopped laughing and playing on it or in it since we got it home and put it together for him. On the way home he kept looking in the back of our truck saying…”Super Cool Nana, Papa…My new bed!”
We had Easter at our house this year for our 3 year old grandson. Even though his mommy and daddy are no longer together they are learning how to be friends and get along for the sake of their son, and both of his grandma’s couldn’t be prouder of our kids for making it work.
So my grandson did not have to go to two different homes to celebrate, he got to celebrate with all of us at the same time. His Easter 2014 would have included his Daddy but his daddy way away at a funeral, but it did include his Mommy, His Nana (his daddy’s mother), his Mamaw (his mommy’s mother), his Papa (his daddy’s step-dad), his Papaw (his mommy’s dad), his Aunt Caitlin who he calls Aunt KK (his mommy’s sister), his cousin Donavhen (who was having his very 1st Easter every and is Aunt Caitlin’s son), his Great Great Aunt Jean and Great Great Uncle Van (who are his MaMaw and mommy’s Aunt & Uncle), and a family friend on his daddy’s side of the family named Jerry.
We had a wonderful dinner, great conversation, and so much fun hiding the eggs, and watching our little ones hunt and find them. I am very thankful for our blended family, it’s hard work but we all love Kaden so much to make it all work. He is one lucky little boy, and we are all so blessed to have this precious gift from God.
Hope you enjoy! For those of you who have viewed my blog titled Positively Negative Easter…well these are the same photos just not enhanced into Negative Images…these are the originals.
My father past away in March of 2000 at the young age of 57. I remember when I was growing up hear the stories of my dad as a young man and his dachshund named “Lady!” She went ever where with him, she was the love of his life back then. He had her for many years and she did at age 14 (human years)!
Two months after my father’s death my mother and I bought us a full blooded, AKC registered Black and Tan Dachshund puppy. I asked my mother if we could name her “Lady” in honor of my father’s memory. My mother thought that was a wonderful idea.
Even though my mother was the one that forked over the $600.00 to buy her, she has always been my dog, and will forever be my dog. As you can see from the pictures she is a very spoiled dog. She loves to be covered, in fact she knows how to cover herself. I will have to find my video and post it on here of her covering her self with her blanket.
When she does not sleep in our bed she sleeps in her OWN baby bed!
In the living room she loves to snuggle on the couch or chair with my husband or me, but when we are to busy or are not there she will love jump in her wicker basket and snuggle down in one of her many blankets!
This little puppy and her brother came to use in October of 2009. Our other dogs were going crazy one morning after we had put them all outside. They were barking at out 2 car detached garage. So my husband went in to investigate expecting to find a cat, raccoon, or something like that…NOT 2 abandoned puppies that look to be about 6 weeks old. The were swollen with worms and they were so cold.
We brought them inside and gave them medication for the worms, feed them, and then gave them a nice warm bath. Afterwards they sat in my recliner with me, snuggled up to my belly under my warm blanket and they slept there for hours while I watched TV. We named her Pixie and her brother Pockets. They are both very loving and intelligent animals. They were housebroken in no time, and learned all the commands we have for our dogs very fast.
We try to find good homes for them both, but was only able to find a good home for Pixie after we had her for 18 months. Pixie is mild and gentle, and Pockets, is gentle but extremely hyper…I think he needs ADHD meds…LOL!
Anyway the pictures below of Pixie is when she was 14 months old, she is sleeping on our bed and she started shaking from being cold. So I took one of my husband’s T-Shirts from the laundry basket and wrapped her up in it. She looked so cute that I had to capture this moment in time of our little girl.
While she went to a good loving home we still miss her and will always love her. If I had the money to feed all the animals we have taken in and the ones we will take in I would never find them new loving homes. We have the room, just not the money to feed 13+ animals and that’s not counting the vet care they require!
