This is our beautiful and wonderful Lab Roxy! She is 14 months old, and although we love her dearly we are looking for a new home for her. We feel that she deserves to run, and because we live in town she is not able to stretch her legs as often as we would like.
Roxy is very playful! She is a very sweet and lovable puppy. Because she hasn't ever had to be, she is not a dominant dog. Roxy is extremely smart and picks up on anything you want her to do very quickly. She is wonderful with children, and other animals. She only wants to play.
Because she loves being outside she has not been house broken, however because she is such a smart pup she would be very easy to train.
We are willing to give Roxy away absolutely free, as long as you are willing to take very good care of her and love her dearly.
If you are interested please e-mail me at or call 319-258-2109 (leave a message.)

New Year's Eve

I realize that New Years Eve was 10 days ago, but I am just now getting around to posting about it...posting which does include pictures!

So I know that for the most part traditionally everyone goes out, gets drunk, and parties to bring in the new year...however becoming a parent changes everything, not to mention I had no desire what-so-ever to go drinking. So instead we stayed in with the babies and Akaiysha had a sleepover with her best friend Ally.

[Ally is on the left, Akaiysha on the right]

The girls actually made it until midnight. They passed the time by playing with their Littlest Pet Shop stuff, Barbie's, and then we all watched movies and ate popcorn, and played games! When midnight rolled around the only person in bed was baby Mason. We watched the ball drop on television, which ended up being a disappointment because they didn't really show the ball dropping, only all the people who were standing around New York.

The girls also wanted me to do their hair so this is what we came up with:

We did 3 french braids, 2 on top one on the bottom, all coming together to form a sloppy bun. It ended up being entirely too cute!

The kid's also had sparkling grape juice with their pizza and I enjoyed one glass of wine, Mike stuck to soda.

It was a great night! I'm glad that I chose to spend it with my babies!! I definitely felt grateful in the morning when I woke up without a hangover! : )

So how did you spend New Year's Eve?

Akaiysha Kelsey Marie

Akaiysha is a beautiful little princess. She is six years old, and is looking forward to her seventh birthday in April. She is an April Fool's baby, coming 2 weeks late she really did fool us all.

She enjoys playing and spending time with her BFF, Ally, playing barbies and littlest pet shop, and we can't forget playing her DS Grandma got her for Christmas! Akaiysha is now in first grade, reading at around a third to fifth grade level. (It mostly depends on her attitude, and what she is willing to do that day.) She has worked very hard to be one of the top colorers in her class, so I will be showcasing some of her work for the world to see, because of course I am a very proud mommy.

Akaiysha loves the Lord with the passion of an adult and the heart of a child. She's on fire for Him. She would love to save everyone in the world, and there are Sunday's when it is her dragging our butts out of bed to go to church!

Mason Michael Thomas

This is Mason...He is two years old. He has an unreal obsession with vacuums...maybe it's because he sees me cleaning all the time, or it could just be that vacuuming is fun, either way he loves them! He got his very first vacuum for Christmas this year, and guess what, it actually sucks a he is ecstatic! 

As any two year old boy, or any age for that matter, he loves Thomas the train and Lightning McQueen right along with Mater and Percy, their side-kicks. 

He is a very well-behaved two year old. Quiet for the most part, he gets that from his daddy. It takes him awhile to warm up to a new person. He is a mama's boy, and my little cuddle bug. He has recently learned that if he tells mommy that he's scared of the "monstew over 'der" then he gets to cuddle up in mommy's bed, so he's taking advantage of that and so am I! They are only little for so long!

Well that's on to the rest of the family :)
