The birthday girl is two! Already!!
Since today is Bekah's birthday and we don't plan on having a party until later this month, I decided that we would just do a little family thing today. Nothing really special, just some yummy cupcakes and the birthday song.
She did so good at blowing out her candles. I was really surprised because she hasn't ever practiced before. It was so cute after she blew out the candles she did the sign for more. She wanted to do it again!
Isn't she a cutie?! I can't believe that it's been two years already. I can't believe that two years ago, I was this huge...
I can't believe how much my little Bekah J. has changed since the day we were blessed with her.
It's funny how even though two years have passed since the day she was born, I can remember it so clearly. I remember how wonderful it felt to have her in my arms for the first time. I remember how she smelled of that newborn fragrance that only new babies have. I remember how she had cute little curly wisps of blonde hair on her temples.
I remember how she had me wrapped around her little finger the instant I met her.
Happy Birthday, Miss Bekah J! I love you!!

Meet the newest addition to our family...Roxie!! She is a six month old "Boston Chug". Her momma was full Boston Terrier and her daddy was a chihuahua and pug mix. She is so lovable and playful!
We have been thinking about getting a dog ever since we spent some time over at our friends house. They have a lovable boxer that Erin just fell in love with. While we were on our mission to find a boxer, we found Roxie. She may not be a boxer, but she is the perfect dog for us. She loves the kids and we love her :)
Although, I DID have some doubts the first night when she pooped and peed on the floor! And howled and cried during bedtime...She was used to sleeping IN BED with her previous owner (uh-oh) and that WAS NOT going to happen here! She is doing great, though, adjusting quite well.
So now, I am pretty sure that completes our crazy family of one mommy, one daddy, one boy, one girl, two crazy cats and one playful pup!! Whew!

Lately, I've been ditching the cardstock and reaching for the canvas boards :) Too bad they haven't been for me. I've been making them as gifts for the family and I love the way they have been turning out!
I am obsessed with Crackle Paint by Tim Holtz...it is so much fun to play with. These canvases are so easy to do, too. I love the size (11X14) and the texture.
Thanks for looking!

So, it's Tuesday. Typically I would be excited. I always look forward to Tuesday. That was before the end.
Call me pathetic, I know I am. But, darn it, why did this show have to end? After following it for the past six years, I feel like I've lost some close friends.
Hurley. I am gonna miss you, dude. All your references to Star Wars, your good natured heart...I never would've thought that you would end up where you did.
Locke. Don't tell anyone, but I secretly have a crush on you. Thank you for being the BEST actor on this series. It was a pleasure watching you each week, going from good to bad and bad to good. Even when you were fake Locke, I still loved you.
Jack. It was always you. From the very beginning, it started with you and ended with you. I must say that you totally redeemed yourself this season. At the beginning of this series you were in my favorites. Then you got all weird and over bearing and I lost interest. But this season, wow, you made me a believer again.
Sawyer. Sawyer. Sawyer...*sigh* Oh, how I will miss your dry sense of humor. The way you nicknamed just about every person on the island. Your dimples. Any scene where you were shirtless...I wouldn't hesitate at all to "play house" with you :) (okay, just don't tell my husband that!!)
I just still can't believe that it's over. There will not be anymore shows. It's not just over for the summer...it's over for good.
I guess I should just take the advice of Jack and "Let go".
At least I can watch the DVD's anytime I want, right?
