First to the left is our dog, Sydney. Jason and I got her in 1997. She was a stray then, so the Humane Society does not inow her exact age. They estimate it then at 2-3 years. So I am thinking she is about 14-15 years old. She is a chow sheltie.
Right now she is not happy that we brought home this guy:
Here is the Pee Machine. His name is Parker. He is 4 months old. We were told he was potty trained. Pft! I am a little annoyed with picking up puppy pee. He is a rottweiler Australian sheep dog. A co-worker of Jason's didn't want to send the dog back to the shelter, so we took him. Jason says so proudly that we saved him. Yeah, okay. Stop peeing in my house, stop bugging Sydney, stop humping my girls. Yes he is asserting his male dominance. Dude, you have been fix!! Stop asserting!!
So needless to say, we are still adjusting.

I also want to thank everyone for the good wishes regarding Michaela. Yesterday the doctor saw Michaela and said her weight is fine. He said we are used to seeing obese kids, so we are surprised when one is thin. Okay, that makes sense, but my other kids are not anywhere near fat. They have some cushion, you know what I mean? Michaela is just so bony. He says there is no weight issue. Okay.
Today I had to take her for a blood test to determine if there is any inflamation in her stomach that might explain why it hurts alot. Also for the next two weeks she can not have any diary products. I looked at him and said, "Dude, you just took away stuff she will eat!" The two main things they are testing for is lactose intolerant and Celiac's Disease. She has a recheck in two weeks to give the lab time to get back and also to see if milk was the issue. We will see.
She was so good at the lab. She whined a little bit, but she stayed still. They were so impressed with my Bubba:) She is such a good little girl. I wish they stop growing up:(
Since I wasn't on the computer much yesterday, I am so behind on blogging. Today is not going to get better. I have to organize my scrapping stuff. Tonight I am going scrapbooking. This is a good thing, even though it puts me farther behind on my blogging. When I get back tonight, I will probably stay up a bit. Some of you know, I usually stay up to about 2 in the morning messing around on the computer.
You all have a good Friday night!

I will not be doing much. Actually in the morning, I have to take Michaela to the doctors. For a while now she has been complaining of stomach pains. Almost daily. Her diet sucks. If I cook what she doesn't like she doesn't eat. She hates a lot of stuff. It is hard to please her. I think she looks like a refugee from ethiopia. I think she looks thin. Maybe the two are connected, I don't know. I just feel better taking her in.

I am grateful that I am able to stay home with my kids. Yes, there are times during the day I watch TV or blog while my kids are playing or napping. But I am glad to be with my kids.
Yes, after each baby, it took awhile for me to adjust to a new person. I did complain. When you are cranky with sleeplessness and in my case bad hemorroids and a body rash(allergic to whatever medicine they put in the epidural), complaining is gonna happen. Not being able to sleep at night for about two months. Getting a kid ready for school when the baby is crying. But, I am glad it was me who did all this. Want to know something, I miss this period. I miss being up at 4 in the morning and just sitting and feeding my baby.
I am grateful my Hubby works hard, so I can stay home. Thank you Jason.
I just wanted to say that all good mothers work hard. Stay at home, working, work at home, we all do. Lets be united in motherhood!

I know that a lot of people are wishing for spring to start. I am as well. But I am hoping for one more snow day. The kind that gives us at least 6 inches. So that school is canceled.
So in the spirit of my wish, we read Names for Snow by Judi K. Beach. I thought we could make snow on paper. I put white paint in a paper dish and we used the easer end of a pencil to make dots.
Here is Adela's snow. I call it the blizzard, windy snow.
There really is no rules to this award. You do not have to pass this award on if you don't want to. If you do, all Michaela asks is that you let her know who you pass it on to, so she can put the name of the honorees on her blog.
I am going to pass this award! I want to pass on the good feeling I felt when I was bestowed this awesome award!

The SITS Girls is having an hourly giveaway starting this morning. Check it out! The rest of us are having our own giveaways on our blogs.
I am giving away jewerly. I am a mini horder and it was kind of hard to give it up, but I know it is time. I have to makeroom.
This is a necklace and matching bracelet.
These are two rings I got when I was into tourqouise and silver, though it isn't real silver and probably not real tourqouise. The ring on the right was my bar ring. Yup, I had a set outfit when I went to the bar. I also used to wear rings on all my fingers, except my thumbs.

We read If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Numeroff. I love all her books. When I find out there is a new one, I run to the library and grab it!
