8 is Great!

Our grandson, Ryder, turned 8 in September. Emma turned 7 a few days later so Stephanie, Melanie and I surprised them with a quick trip to Sea World. The weather was great, the crowds were light and we had a wonderful time! We even got soaked on the shipwreck rapids ride. The kids had a blast and really enjoyed their birthday adventure.

lots of flamingos
Then on November 20th came the big day for Ryder to get baptized. We were able to have it in Gilbert so all the family could be there. Gabe baptized him and papa Ron confirmed him. What a special day!

What the heck were we thinking?

Meet Booger. He is the newest addition to our family. Dollar signs got in the way of good sense on this one. We bred Daisy with a neighbors dog some months ago and had such good luck selling all the puppies that Ron decided we needed our own male to breed her with. Thus the reason that we now have 4 dogs! (5 if you count Nat and Tommy's boxer that is living in our backyard for who knows how long :) Booger is a crazy puppy and at times a royal pain in the behind but he has wormed his way into our hearts and we all love him! What can I say - we are crazy!

How can you not love that sweet face? :)
