AngeLingo…about our dachshund’s boogers & happiness

Earlier tonight Angel was just crackin’ me up…running to the bathroom, running back to the couch (where we were all trying to watch Bedtime Stories), and she puts some toilet paper up to Daphne’s nose & says seriously, “Ok, blow!” and then as if it will help Daphne to see it visually demonstrated, Angel blows as hard as she can out her nose Continue reading


A Braysay…about clouds

Yesterday, we were swimming at Frank & Sherry’s pool with the Reeves while they are here in the Austin area, and Rick threw¬† Bray up in the air. His body was pencil straight and went pretty high! He went down under w/hardly a splash, then popped back up to hear his daddy say, “Whoa, dude! I think you got some clouds on your head with that one!” and Braylon looked at him like he was serious, “For real life? I did?” then he looked up at the clouds as he brushed a few of them off of his wet hair.


It was an eventful, exhausting but very fun day for our lil bray.

mini dachshund : sold to the biggest sucker!

…that would be me. i’ve been waiting in the wings for 3 yrs or so, and it paid off ~ she’s black w/caramel highlights & not quite 2 lbs of sweetness, puppy breath, timidity, oversized paws & puppydog eyes, poop, and a bark definitely bigger than her bite.

she brings back some great memories, growing up with one for 13 yrs. the best one that comes to mind was when my sister was sleepin’ like a rock on the couch one summer night, as a huge opossum got in through the back door. she half-woke and in her drunken stupor, thinking the rodent had somehow instantly waddled 15 ft. and fallen asleep on her feet, grabbed whatever was sound asleep on her feet, and threw it across the room. there was a “daaaaaaaad!” and then a “thump” followed by a “yelp!!”

poor lil wiener dog.

we’re deciding on a name today. any suggestions??

i’m gr8ful for…

having a kind, fun husband who happens to be the best father in the world, yesterday throwing off all the sheets blankets & pillows off our bed, & throws our kids around the bedroom for an hr. straight, til they just die of laughter …and pushes the blender’s “on” button & cant help but add to the chaos by screaming this insane high-pitched noise until the whole family joins in, all looking at each other & screaming at the top of our lungs
