Can you identify??

The lady parked next to me at Walmart the other day had 3 puppies in her truck...she said she had picked them up off the side of the road, the mother was killed...what do you think she has in her?????

She is the sweetest thing...she loves to be outside and gets along with our other 2 dogs and with the kids!

Her name for the time being is Brindle (original I know...). She may go with us to Lubbock tomorrow so I can find her a home.

Brindle and Samantha!

Just some random things...

Capri Sun is doing a recycle program that our school is participating in, we collect ALL drink pouches, I take them home and rinse them out and send them in, they send us $.02 per pouch! This is what my kitchen looks like much of the time.

Samanthas St. Patricks day bow!

Bethanys pants and bow...thanks Amanda for the idea!!!

Trying to get a pic of the kids and the snow on the ground...can not see the snow, but it was there!!

Sam brushing her teeth...she loves to mimic the big kids! She even spits when she is done!!!


HELLO!!!!!! Well, since I have been MIA, I have a lot to cover...bear with me, there are a lot of things that went on around here in the last month!

We will start before spring break....
