Annalea Celebrates her 6th Birthday with a bunch of Party Animals!!

Annalea is now 6 years old!!!!

We celebrated her birthday in our back yard with an assortment of petting zoo animals.  Annalea got to be the first one to sit in the corral and pet the little animals, which included a mini pig, chinchilla, rabbits, birds, and even a hedgehog!  The larger animals were outside the corral and available to be "walked" on their "leashes."  A great time was had by all!!

Cookie Joins our Family!!!

On Saturday, August 31, we brought home our new puppy Cookie!!  She is a cockapoo, born on June 24, 2013.  Her parents are a poodle (dad) and cocker spaniel (mom).  She is a perfect fit for our family!!  Annalea is beside herself with joy, and Ryan is enjoying (for now) being an important caregiver.

Why now to get a puppy?  Well, I am someone who said we would never get a dog.  But as the kids grow and my memories of dirty diapers fade, it wasn't hard for me to fall for this extremely adorable creature.

Introducing Cookie.
