Poor Sadie!!!

Here is a picture of her ear. under those staples is a very swollen ear. She broke a blood vessel in her ear lobe and the non-surgical treatments were not working so we had to go this route.
I dropped off a dog and got back a baboon! LOL - Poor Sadie had 2 surgeries on Friday. This is a picture of her back side. They removed her cork skrew tail because it kept getting infected (typical of the breed) and had a terrible odor. All of the black that you see is stitches.

Showers of Blessings

Friends came far and wide to celebrate this special day.

This past weekend Victoria's aunt and mother gave her a beautiful shower. I wish I had a better camera because the pictures I took do not give the event justice. I am in awe at all the time and effort that went into such a special day. The candy bar

The theme for the bridal shower was "Audrey Hepburn- Breakfast at Tiffanys" Tiffany Blue showered the entire house! It was so beautiful!

This counter had pictures of women on both sides of the family that were married

This is my mothers wedding picture.

This was the food bar, which I have to say was out of this world!

Apple Picking

I had high ambitions for apple picking this year. My plan was to can as many jars as possible of apple sauce. I even bought a pretty expensive little gadget that purees the apples. Unfortunatly, I did not buy enough apples (thinking I would use the first patch for pies and go back for more) the problem is I never got back to the orchard. So, I guess it will have to wait until next year!

The kids enjoying the "fruits" of their labor.


Climbing apple trees (which we found out later we were not supposed
to do)

After we picked apples we stopped at the little store by the orchard and got some goodies. Then we went to the mall and bought Isabella's dress for Cristian and Victoria's wedding! It was a fun day.
