The New Trimmers

Stella had puppies!!! 7 of them (4 girls, 3 boys) They all look just like her except for the two white ones. The one is solid white, but the other has a black spot on its eye. They are so cute! I can't stand to not be out there playing with them. My maternal instincts are totally kicking in.
If anyone is in the market, they are pure bred and papered. We are selling the girls for $550.00 and the boys for $450.00. We are so sad to have to leave them.

Goodbye (For Now)

It is official. We are moving to San Diego. Rick got involved in a great business opportunity with his wood mill so we are moving to be closer to it. He has actually been living in San Diego for the last month or so by himself to make sure that it would be a good idea for us to move there and not just have him commute. I miss him so much. He comes home or we meet up somewhere on most weekends so that he doesn't forget about me.
We closed on our condo in La Jolla on Wednesday so at least he isn't just living in a hotel room anymore. We are not selling our house in Washington because we plan on coming home in 2 or 3 years when everything gets settled down with the new addition to United Wood.
We will miss our friends and family so much and we made sure to get a place that could accomidate all of our visitors so we'd better hear from anyone coming that way.

These are my "GIRLS" Kendra and Dacia. I am going to miss them so much when we leave. They are so much fun and even though we don't get a chance to see each other all the time, we are so close.

Friend! You kids finally made it official. I am so excited for both of you. I love you so much. I wish you all the best. I am going to miss you so much. Make sure you keep in touch and call me as soon as you get back from the steamy hot honeymoon in Tahoe.


We are back from visiting my sister in Seattle. We had a great time! We did so many fun things. Porter wanted to show uncle Rick the "Dead Crab Beach", we rode on the Ferry, went to Pikes Place and to an arcade in the market. We went over to see the Space Needle and walked around at the Port Orchard street festival. The kids kept us very entertained! I can't believe how you moms do this everyday. I was worn out. I swear I've never slept so good. Their new house is darling and they really showed us a great time in their new city.

Maisey Sings Her ABC's

My sister Katie just moved to Seattle so we went out there to visit them and see their new house. My niece and nephew are so cute. They kept us laughing the whole time. Maisey does not hold anything back. If she wants to sing, she sings and if she wants to dance, she shakes it. She turns it right on for the camera.

Our first stop was Bear World in Rexburg, ID. Rick and I love this place. You drive around the park while bears just wander all around you. We bottle fed the cubs and fed the big bears on a tour. There is a little petting zoo too. From Rexburg we went up to West Yellowstone to stay Saturday night. We stayed in these little log cabins that are so cute and cozy!
