Morning After

...the storm that is :-) I decided not to go to school this morning as the roads were farely icy. I've been spending the day entertaining our children (aka, the dog and kitty) and making cards.

Nothing makes me happier in the morning then this...TEA!!!! I love the sight of this. This is my coffee addiction, except it's tea silly.

Yes, these pictures were taken from inside our house, but I'm way to lazy to actually go outside. Not to mention it was like...20 degrees.

This is Brock's "new" car. AKA: Will's old car. Since I stole Brock's Dodge Stratus, he decided he still needed something to drive around in...she's a beast.

Feeding Hay

School was canceled because of a winter storm so Archimedes and I went feeding with Brock. I was the designated gate opener/closer...I feel so special sometimes!

My boys...they're so cute!

Daddy, where are you?

I gotta get in some pictures to (there's always cute pictures of dad and kid cause mom is always taking them...I just realized this)

Patiently waiting for hay

This one was so hungry she had to resort to her nose!

Sleep Aid

The first night we brought Archimedes home, he was so exhausted from driving all day that he slept through the night without a hitch (except for some poo problems on the bed, but we fixed that and he went right back to sleep). We woke up thinking "Wow, he's a good sleeper. We got the jackpot with him!" So the next night rolls around. Brock and I just get to bed and it started. The continuous sound of his baying and crying ALL NIGHT. You might think I'm exaggerating on this but I'm not. ALL NIGHT! This lasted for a couple more days (we finally got ear plugs) and we decided desperate measures must be taken.

That's when our little angel from heaven arrived :-) Here she is...Galileo, Gally for short.

This is her hiding spot from Archimedes. He can't reach her to chew on her tail and Gally can soak up the sun!

This little kitten has saved our marriage! (okay, it wasn't that bad but I like to sound dramatic) We found out the problem was that Archimedes was super lonely down in the basement where he sleeps. My mom-in-law graciously gave us an already house trained kitten after my dad-in-law voiced his opinion of having a cat in his house. The result was day and night...literally. We didn't hear a peep out of Archimedes that entire first night...Except for the occasional meow from Galileo because Archimedes like to chew on her. They act like they don't like each other sometimes, but they sleep in the same bed so I'm not falling for it.

Well, there ya have it! Our little angel has blessed us with the gift of nighttime sleep.

Just Us

It was just Archimedes and I today so we enjoyed a little "outside" time as it was a gorgeous day. I borrowed my camera from school and played around with that...hope you like.

He's Arrived!

I'd like everyone to meet our new Bloodhound puppy, Archimedes...

A proud "doggy dad"

Ride home

He slept almost the entire way home

Yes, that is Brock in Archimedes' bed...

Goodnight Archimedes!

Well, the first night went well. We only woke up one time (at 4:30 a.m.) to a cute puppy bay and found a nice little surprise on his bed...We fixed that and he went back to sleep until 6:30. The morning was a little rough with more puppy poo on the carpet (we've decided for no more "wet" dog food in hopes that the "dry" food will make for easier cleaning).

More pictures to come!

Cards for Sale

To stay sane while I'm in college, I resort to any kind of craft project there is. It's a very nice break from homework and makes the nights go faster when I'm away from Brock. I just finished a quilted book bag and will start a baby quilt soon (for my friend, not me people!)

Recently, I decided to make cards for a little extra green. I will do custom orders for any occasion (birthday, anniversary, sympathy, holiday, thank-you, etc.). Prices will vary with each card depending on the design. Please e-mail me at for any inquiries.

Here's a few Halloween cards I made today....

"Hello Friend" $4.00

"Witch's Night Out" $5.00

"Halloween n' Treats $4.00

"Vintage Halloween" $3.50
