We have added a fur baby to our little family.

Devon Adele is a purebreed German Shepard that we purchased July 3rd. We were walking in the mall and past the pet store since it was on the way to the kids play area and ther she was. It was love at first sight for her and Aaron.

The girls absolutly love her and she is very sweet to them. They vet said she should get to be around 100lbs! She has already learned to sit and shake with both paws and is now working on lay down. She is 90% housebroken and is being kennel trained. She does great on walks and loves to chase birds.

I have always loved German Shepards and Aaron had one named Chole that he loved so much. I was happy to be able to get him another puppy that he can love again because Chole had to be put down because of Addison’s Diease and hip displysia. We did ask the vet about Devon perhaps getting the same thing and she did say that as long as we are looking for it, the earlier we notice the quicker we can get it fixed.

Devon is now a offical member of our family and will make a great addition for years to come.

Speechless Love!

Its a little fuzzy but its so hard to get all of them to smile at once.

Kim Kim is such a ham

They actually sat still for a picture

This little girl just melts my heart

This is on a trash can outside in the courtyard at my work. I thought it was pretty inventive.

I wear my sunglasses at night!

ChaChaCha Changes!!

Well I made a drastic change. Of course if you are a friend on facebook or have seen me at work you already know.

As I had sworn never to do this I did...

I couldn't help myself....

I just couldn't handle it anymore.......



Final Product.....

I started using John Frieda's Voluming Shampoo and Conditioner and for some reason the ingredients they use in it made my hair feel like straw and start to break....BAD! I was looking like a had a mullet. So I decided to give my hair a break and cut it all off and color back to my natural color. I feel I look older with ark short hair but it has been very easy to maintain. Now of course I love A LOT of John Freida's products especially their Blonde collection, but I'm sad to say I cant recommend the volume shampoo and conditioner unless you want your hair to break off. So what do you think is it a keeper or should I go back to blonde or just grow my hair out? Comments and thoughts welcome :)

First day of Kindergarden

Addison started her first day of Kindergarten this past Monday and is doing fantastic! She awoke bright and early ready to get the day going. We of course have our first parent/teacher conference September the 9th to see where she is at as far as kindergarten standards go.

Here is Addi sitting in class on the first day.

Shelby started 4th grade and it is absolutely mad

ss that she will be graduating from high school in just 9 years! She is a amazing student and does so well with reading and of course being very smart. Mackenzie started 3rd grade and is enjoying being a year higher in school. She will graduate in 10 years. I feel old.

Here is a picture of them outside their school. They are Smith Stars and the stars of my life.

Little Whispers

I have decided to adventure out into the world of Entrepreneurship and start my own small business on Etsy. I have always be crafty and love creating and giving my creations to the ones I love. I have made personalized name canvases for children for about a year that I have given to family and close friends but I think I'm ready to step out a little further and offer customized orders for sale.

The other part of the store, the part I am really excited about, is making personalized hand stamped metal necklaces Dahlia Cabochon rings. I have always loved them and I believe I can make some that people would actually like to buy. Now I know there are a TON of different ‘stores’ that sell similar things, however, I want to create gorgeous pieces at a affordable price. I know I have looked at many etsy stores for a personalized necklace but the ones I love are so expensive. I'm prepared to be very competitive hehe.

Little Whispers will have canvases for now until I get some jewelry samples done and I am working on my branding, packaging, ‘marketing’ things like that. I am super excited and cant wait to show you my first pieces. I have made a facebook page that I can take orders from and discuss what kind of vision you are wanting for your little one’s nursery.
I know it doesn't come easy but I figured if I get the word out we will see how it goes. So tell all your friends!!
