Hangin' Out

This is Miss Haven, Ginger the Puppy, and Gabe Koger. Haven and I went over to the Koger's house yesterday and much to my pleasure, discovered that they had a new puppy. Ginger curled right up next to Haven. A future veterinarian perhaps? Mommy hopes so! Aren't the three of them just the cutest?
I love puppies! Especially this one...she has a huge tummy like a little cow.

Taking a Breather

Whew! This has been an incredibly busy week. Last weekend my brother and his wife came up to see Haven for the first time. David tried to teach Haven how to suck her thumb properly. On Sunday we had Haven dedicated at church. I'll have to put up some pics later when I get them because she looked incredibly cute (I might be partial though, but I think that's allowed).

We found out on Sunday that my grandpa was in the hospital and not doing well. So, I made a fast, unexpected trip with my mom to Amarillo on Tuesday. She drove about 90 miles an hour and I prayed that Haven and I would make it there alive. His condition has already improved thanks to alot of prayer. Since lots of family came in to help, Haven got to meet a bunch of people. And, we even went to Pampa so she could meet her great grandma there and see her grandma Majaunta and Aunt Hannah.

The Butcher of Sandia Park

Ask me what I did today and I'll tell you: I did dishes, picked up the house, fed my baby, and butchered my dog. Yep, you read that correctly. I had a spare moment today and decided that Trudy was looking pretty mangy and needed a good brushing. And while I was at it, I took the scissors to her. I was so proud of myself. I somehow always cut her. This time I was extra careful and gentle. I trimmed one ear. I trimmed the other and she yelped. I had cut her. I couldn't figure out how I'd cut the last ear and not the first when I'd trimmed the first shorter. It wasn't until she started shaking her head and got blood everywhere that I saw the big gash in both her ears. Ugh! I am a horrible, horrible person. I told Chris to never allow me to trim Haven's hair (when she actually has enough to trim) because our baby will end up looking like an elf. To make it up to Trudy I fed her about 50 dog treats and her favorite canned dog food. Not only do I destroy tissue, I try to buy love with food. There might be a special place in hell for people like me.

Happy Mother's Day, Grandma

Haven is wearing the dress you bought her, Majaunta. So, she wanted to show it off. Hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day. We love you!
