I did NOT eat ALL the brownies!

When Mark came home from work yesterday he was not happy that I ate all the brownies!

First of all I did NOT eat ALL the brownies! There was some left!

Second he should know better than to leave me alone all day with the best brownies I have ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth!

Places to go and people to see!

Sawyer is on the go! He is officially mobile! Sometimes he crawls and other times he scoots on his belly (which is much quicker on the hardwood floors!) but either way there is no sitting still!

He is also now able to get into a sitting position from a laying down one! He is getting so big!
Here he started in the kitchen and ended right beside me!

One Year Ago Today...

August 22, 2006 started out like every other day. I got up and went to work. After work I was going to Scrapbooker's Dream because they were having a meet the teacher's event and my sister had just started teaching. So I left for the store right after work. I was stopping and getting both of us some food when Mark called me. He was supposed to pick up Beau's medicine, he was calling to tell me he would not get off work in time and that I was going to have to go. The vet's office was completely on the other side of town! I did not think I would be able to make it back to the store in time for Kerry's thing...but I went and made it there with food in plenty of time! Mark stopped by after he finally got off work and picked up the medicine.

Not to much later Mark called. He told me I needed to come home. I could tell something was rwong but he did not want to tell me what. Finally he said "Beau did not make it"....I responded "he did not make it where?". Then it hit me. My puppy had died.

So with my heart broken and tears streaming down my face I drove home. I found Beau laying lifeless on the floor. I went and sat down next to him and just petted his ear.

Mark had already made arrangements for Beau to be buried at a friend house who had a lot of land.

So we went and buried our puppy.

That was one year ago today.

I still miss him.
I wrote this a few days after Beau died.
It has only been a few days since you left, but
the reality of you being gone has not set in yet.
This morning I turned the alarm off I reached
down to pet you and you were not there. I
find myself going to the front door to let you
in because I look around the room and you are
not there. I do not even want to leave the house
knowing you will not be there to greet me
when I get home.

I miss you puppy. I miss sharing pop tarts and
toast (and everything else I ate) with you.
I miss you following me around the house just
wanting to be wherever I was. I miss hearing the
clank of your toenails on the hardwood floor.
I miss your obsession with the mailman. I miss you
wanting to sit on my lap. I miss how you would
nudge my hand when you didn’t think you were
getting enough attention. I miss you barking at
Mark whenever he would tickle me. I miss our
walks to the lake. I miss those big brown eyes.
I miss scratching your nose and telling you how
cute you are.

My heart is broken. You being gone has left me
feeling empty. I was not ready. I can’t accept that
it was your time. I pray that you did not suffer.
I’m sorry that you were alone. I hope that you
were not scared.

Thank you puppy for being a part of my life.
Thank you for liking me the best.
Thank you for being so protective over me and
making me feel safe and secure in our home.
Thank you always being there to greet me when
I came home.
Thank you for the unconditional love you always gave. I miss you.
I used this on the page that i just made today.

Just for Schaun!

we had company today!

My sister had a dental appointment today...so Sawyer and I met her up at the Dr. Linda's office. We stayed with Becca in the waiting room so Kerry could get her teeth cleaned without being bothered! It was nice getting to see Linda...she had not met Little Sawyerbean yet! Of course she thought he was just adorable!

After her appointment we went to Hobby Lobby for a little shopping...

We came back to my house for lunch and so Becca could see Mark! Sawyer had alot of fun playing with his cousin and his aunt!

me and dad album

here is a little 6x6 album that I made of Mark and Sawyer photos! I know that some people think that glitter and flowers are just for girl stuff...BUT I DO NOT! Hope you like it too!

time for us!

Mark and I are both off on Tuesday's. So last Tuesday he had a arranged for my sister (thanks Kerry!) to keep Sawyer so we could go out...just the two of us!
We went to the movies and saw Bourne Ultimatium and had dinner at Bravo's! I just love that place! The food there rocks! I had the tortellini with alfredo sauce and Mark had the chicken marcella....YUM! For dessert (the best part) we had butter cake that was topped with fresh berries and vanilla bean gelato...it was heavenly!
It was really good to get out just the two of us...we have only been out a couple of times without Sawyer and only one other time by ourselves! I hope we get to do it again before another 6 months passes!

It has been a rough week!

It started last Friday when Sawyer could not seem to keep his bottles down...THEN I noticed he had a temp...it was only a 101...and I realized the poor boy had not had a wet diaper since I got him up! So I called the Dr., it was after hours so a nurse at Children's Mercy called back...asked me a bunch of questions and said that if he did not have a wet diaper soon we would need to bring him in. He was asleep at the time so we let him sleep...when he woke up I started giving him so pedialyte...and within an hour we had a wet diaper!

Saturday seemed to go fine...except that I was not giving him bottles...only pedialyte and cereal. Saturday night rolled around and we thought it would be safe to give him a bottle again....WRONG! He woke up around 9 pm screaming his little head off! I went in to check on him and he was covered head to toes in poo...and that was just the beginning! He had 3 or 4 more by the time he finally went back to sleep at almost midnight!

Same thing on Sunday...lots of poo! We kept giving him pedialyte and small amounts of cereal. He was not showing any signs of dehydration so we were just going to take him to the Dr. in the morning.

We get up Monday morning and there was no poo! We took him to the Dr. and she said he had a virus and an an ear infection. She gave us some pain drops for his ear (we decided against antibiotics).

Than Tuesday morning Mark and I both woke up feeling sick! We spent most of the day in the bathroom ourselves!

Today seems to be a lot better! All three of us our starting to feel better finally!
