Introducing Ollie Weires

We would like you to meet the newest member of our family ... Ollie Weires. Ollie is a Goldendoodle. He is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. They are supposed to be very smart, great family dogs, with less shedding than a Golden. He reminds us greatly of Shandy.

Ollie was born Nov. 4th and joined our family yesterday, December 27th. He will be 8 weeks old tomorrow. We went to the pet store and purchased all his necessities. While there, I was laughing at myself and the kids at how this dog was already our "baby". We are ready to spoil him rotten. He did well last night in his crate. He cried when we put him in and I laid on the floor with a blanket beside him and he stopped crying and put his foot out on top of mine. He woke up 3 times in the night whining. I laid back down twice and John once. All we had to do was to lay beside him and say lay down and he would stop crying and go to sleep.

Well, just wanted to share these pictures. Happy vacation to everybody still on vacation.

More Dress Up!!

I don't have any new pics to add, so thought I would put more of Little Bug in her dress up attire. Today I gave her a little tiara and boy did she love that. She wore it to lunch and kept checking to make sure it was still on her head. Too cute!!

Weires Family Moving to Germany!!

Just Kidding. I was just trying to get your attention and to get back at all of you mean people. I have been BUSY!! But here are some pics of Dani's gang. They came home for me to take their "Family" pictures. We had a lot of fun.

John has been out of town for 2 weeks and I have been just being crazy with all the usual stuff.

Babsat Kendall the other day. We had a blast. Ashley says we spoiled her cause we let her use our cell phones. haha I love it. We also let her do her first dress up at my house the other day. Isn't she cute?

I am sorry and I will try to write more often. I am very bad.

Oh yeah, Kim. At the end of January, Alex will have Mr. Etienne in class. I forget his first name. You need to give me something for her to say to him. She kind of feels like it is kind of family she may be able to tease since he was so close to you guys.

Love everybody!!!

Alex and the State XC Meet!

Dani met us in Lexington to watch Alex's team run at State today. The girls team came in 6th in the state and Alex had her best time this year. She broke 21 minutes. 20.59...... hey, that is still breaking 21.
She did great and now says she hurts all over. She is 74th in the State! Funny thing is, I hurt all over too!!

Happy Birthday to Kristy!!!

I remember when Kristy was born. Daddy called me at school. I was in 4th grade and I remember them letting me walk all the way down the hall to the telephone in the hallway, so I could speak to him. When he told me I had a new little sister, I was so happy. I ran back to my 4th grade class to share the news!!! I loved that people told me she looked like me when she was growing up. I still like it and aspire to look more like HER when I grow up.
Kristy, I think you are a terrific Mom to your kids. I am so proud of you and what you grew up to be!! I am so lucky to have you for a sister. I thank God for bringing you into our lives!

Happy Birthday Kristy! I love you!!

I Don't Want to Clean

So, Dani came home for her 4 day weekend (Fall Break) and proceeded to be terribly sick the whole time. She was supposed to go back on Tuesday night and didn't leave until Thursday night. She didn't eat for 5 days. Yuck. Poor thing, but better home than in a dorm room and a shared bathroom. Can you imagine trying to make it to the bathroom stall all night long being sick?

I wanted to play with her and take her picture and shop.... I even took a day off work. Instead , we went to the doctor. NICE!

Alex and CJ are off this week for Fall Break. John and I took today off. We had breakfast as a family (minus one special college kid). Now, we are going to clean some. Don't you wish you were here, Dani? John and the kids may go to the boys high school soccer game tonight. It is the semi-State game. They have had some great games.

My vision is getting worse. I have an appointment tomorrow, but to get me by the last few weeks, I had to buy some reading glasses. I AM getting old!!

I took some pics of Alex the other day. CJ wouldn't cooperate. I want to get some new ones of Dani and CJ.

Well, off to clean..

Challenging All My Blog Readers

This is a test to see how many people actually read this blog. I know people look at my picture site and am trying to figure out if I should continue writing on this site. My smugmug site doesn't give me much space for narration. So.... if you are checking this place out, please leave a comment. This should be interesting. I hope lots of family are checking it out. Kim, Jessica and Leslie did you find the anniversay pics? ha

These pics are from Alex's Homecoming Week. The same day as Aunt Mae and Uncle Bill's anniversary.

Love you all!!

Stars of the Future

Four of Dani's new friends are in theater. Actually two of these are new friends, the first two went to high school with her. They came home for the weekend and we got busy. It is great. I have photo hams to shoot and they get head shots. The next four years will be fun. I have already seen them in action and they are going to do great!!
As you can see, even the the two teacher majors should be in theater.

Beautiful Girl

Alex and I were playing around this summer. I think she is so dang beautiful!! I am not so sure Daddy likes these pics. He did mention she may need to stop running if her legs were going to remain so gorgeous, so I don't think he like seeing these.
