Love Bug Season!

OMG ! I can't wait for Love Bug season to be OVER!!!! See this, and this was after getting it squeaky clean then running 1, yes just 1 911 call. It's impossible to avoid these bugs!!! If you have been to Florida this time of year then you know exactly what I'm talking about. (Feel free to click on the pictures to get the FULL effect)
On another note..... We spoke with our agency today to confirm the changes with the I171H and I'm happy to say that we will NOT have to fork out another $600.00 just to renew this form!!! Wooohooooooooooo!
We did however shell out another $140.00 for re-fingerprinting. Lets just hope things actually do speed up so we won't have to do any of this paperwork AGAIN.
Can I get an AMEN!

Here is an excellent link to the FDA you can sign up for an e-mail everytime something is recalled. You wouldn't believe how many and what kinds of things are recalled everyday. Click here for the link.

We didn't teach him this....

I posted this on our doggy blog also but it was too cute to not share with all of you.
Moose has just recently started taking the leashes from us (doesn't matter if it is his or Jasmins) and he walks himself or Jasmin whomever is attached to the end of that leash. I had to get some video of it just to share. How cute, now we don't know just how long Jasmin is going to tolerate this but so far she is fine with it.

Party Time!

Joy is graduating today, can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday she was sitting on my stairs when we were building our house, going over her spelling words. Now she is done, finished...all grown up. Boy I sure feel old!
Who is going to call me on Friday nights now and ask "where are we going for dinner?" Congratulations Joy!

Tonight there will be a party for her and all of her friends and family after graduation, many opportunities for pictures!

Not just a fish pond!

Yep, it's a Koi pond but the ducks have decided to make it their bath. Just about everyday they go for a dip and they try and take the food from the Koi. See the Koi in the 2nd picture? I think they actually like playing with the ducks.

Closet update

OK girls....time to get your pictures uploaded of the closet. Here's Mia's closet and I am asking a few of you to post yours then send your request along to your blogger pals. Can't wait to see what everyone has been up to and just how much we have already purchased for our little girls.

Stephe -'cause I just LOVE checking out everything you buy!

Gifts from Jonni!

Once again my pal Jonni has sent me a little surprise package. Check out this cute t-shirt & jacket. Oh and she also sent some Dingo dog bones for Moose & Jasmin, unfortunately I did not get a picture of them prior to the dogs devouring them....I wondered why they were tracking the package all through the house before I opened it, was it the bones or was it the CHOCOLATE I found inside too. YUMMMO. She has helped me with this wait tremendously! Glad I have a pal like her, and to think we have never actually met in person but I feel as if I have known her for years!
