Sorry it has been like forever since we have posted.....things have been CRAZY trying to get into our house in the next few weeks......Once we are in we will have to have a PARTY!!!!

Question: If you could be anything you wanted to be what would it be?

Me: I would be something like a UN ambassador and make the world more aware of orphans and life out side of the United States

I love to travel, but I hate doing the touristy stuff, I want to do what the locals do and experience there culture through them and share what I have learned with others and bring awareness

Isaac Turns 5

We had fun with Ross & Erin, Andy & Jill, and Grandma & Grandpa Dallas. First we went to Wee Tee in Peoria, which pretty much looks like no one has played Putt Putt on it for years. Good thing Ross & Erin were with us. They took us to a very nice course in East Peoria.

Isaac and Eli challenging each other to mini-golf.

Isaac loved his presents. He got this ship from Travor, Haley, Caleb & Hope. He's been playing with it all night. Isaac said "Mommy, I love my presents. I love my dinosaur, I love my pirate ship, I love Travor, Haley, Caleb and Hope. I love Miles, and everyone. I love everyone."

The kids are playing with the Raptor that Miles gave him for his birthday.

Quite the crew. Travor had a hole-in-one.

Bye, Bye, Doggy

Well the puppy is gone......here is the deal....we would take the puppy outside to go potty and then when she was done we would pick her up to bring her in and she would growl at us and sometimes snip. I did not think that was normal for a puppy so i called the breeder and he agreed. He wanted me to talk to a trainer and see what they said....well long story short we took her back to get the other black puppy(which was very sad to have to take her back)while we where there the breeder said you know what this puppy seem pretty aggressive as well, maybe you should wait until our next litter in the spring. They said it is very rare for goldendoodles to be aggressive but if they are they are usually the black ones, they recommend that we get the chocolate or the apricot one next time. so any way we have first pick of the litter in the spring if we still want a dog... we will see.

The kids are ok...Eli and Eva could care less. It was a little harder for Isaac, but he is doing fine...he is just excited for his birthday coming up....he wants golf clubs....so any way there is another one of our dog stories and if you know us personally you know what I mean.

Her name is Adelaide or Addie....she is a Golden doodle which is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a large Poodle....She dose not SHED! So far she has been a GREAT puppy and the kids LOVE playing with her...seriously for hours....

We were picking her up and the lady was tiring to explain things to me, but she kept getting distracted...she would say.."sorry I just have not seen anyone come here to get a puppy with such little kids and so close together...are they all yours"? Yep!all ours. Now Eli has a partner in Potty Training.....
