Life's little surprises

So being the kind hearted sole that I am ....wait, cross that, being the SUCKER that I am....someone brought this adorable dog into the office one day with hopes that the doctors would "take care of him " in other words because they didn't want him anymore and they just wanted to get rid of him. So, I didn't too much give it a second thought! I , pretty much immediately, said I will take him. It worked out perfect because, if you guys know the movie Santa Buddies, there is a cute little dog by the name of tiny in it that is VERY similar in color to this dog and so I thought it would be perfect for McKenzie...I pretty much would say she's in LOVE!!! SO here is her first meeting with who else but TINY !!!!

Our Tree !

So, my tree is not "what I would like it be " but I think it's still beautiful!!! As my husband always says, we can't have everything we want RIGHT THIS MINUTE, we will get it though and that is what will make us appreciate it even more! (not referring to the tree so much...more less life! haha, but in this case I think it was the perfect thing to say!) I did rack UP this year on after Christmas clearance and CAN NOT WAIT until November rolls around again to decorate!!!


Wow, life goes by so fast....I don't even know where the time has gone. What I do know is it wasn't spent on blogging! lol ! I wish it was though. I always love to look back at my blog and see what was going on in our life at that time. I love looking back and seeing how much we have changed and grown up. I know todays January 24, 2012 so its about 24 days late to make a resolution for this new year, but then again who really makes resolutions anymore anyways....they always seem to get broken by the 2nd or 3rd week! So I guess what I will do is just set a "goal" a small goal ! lol My goal is to document 2012 better! I have one project in the burner already and will bring it up to speed on the blog as well. My 365 project! I saw many people on facebook do this last year and decided that I would give it a whirl and see how long I can make it!! The gist of it, is to take one picture a day for the year! So far so good, thanks to technology! I always have my phone handy or the ipod! So with this being said, I am going to try....TRY my best to update the blog better! Soooo here it goes!!!

Jacob's Drill Instructor Ribbon January 14, 2012

After a long journey through the drill field WE MADE IT!!! On January 14, 2012 Jacob received his Drill Instructor Ribbon! It's has had it wonderful moments and its had it horrible moments! However, I must say its been fun!!!! I am so proud of my husband and all he has done. He served as a drill instructor, EDI (experienced drill instructor) and a SDI (senior drill instructor). While on the drill field he taught classes at AIU and he also was apart of the BMP marines. During his time on the drill field he was promoted to SSgt. Parris Island had definitely been good to my husband and our family.
