from my family .... to yours!
This year has been full of many changes in our family. My daughter Ashley got married in August and in just three short days will be moving to Virginia to join her husband, Forrest, who is a Machinist Mate on the USS Eisenhower! Here she is jumping for joy on Christmas Eve morning - her biggest Christmas present arrived -- her storage unit for moving. (You can see she got her jumping abilities from me!)
Since it was just the three of us for Christmas, we decided to take one last "family" picture. We tried to have the dogs join in, but the puppy was not being cooperative. We'll try to have a WHOLE family picture in the next few days while Forrest is home to help pack up and get Ashley to Virginia! Hopefully the dogs will be a little more willing to sit and stay!
Muffin had a tough 2013! Her skin infection really took a toll
on her and she was a trooper through it all.
We all appreciated all your prayers and kind words while she went through
3 rounds of antibiotics and MANY, MANY, MANY sulfonated lyme baths!
She now has "freckles" on her face and as you can see
LOVES her New Years headband!
Our newest addition -- SHADOW is truly a wonderful pup!
He has made a great little brother for Muffin and they enjoy
playing tug-o-war and checking out
What's In the Corner? together!
His name suits him, besides being all black - he IS Muffin's Shadow!
I'm not sure if Shadow is too thrilled with his New Years headband!
I think Muffin might be laughing at Shadow in this SHOT!
I love taking pictures of her because she is always silly!
Thank you for all your support this past year
and sharing in my journey as a wife, mother, puppy mom, mother-in-law, teacher,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
