Build a Bear (er rather a dog)

So after Angie gave Matthias his Build a Bear guft card I couldn't wait to go build one!! WE looked and decided on a stuffed dog rather than a bear, but I kinda knew that would happen with Matthias' love for dogs. We picked out a soft puppy with floppy ears.

He we are getting it stuffed:

And picking out a heart for it:


Now giving it a bath:

And filling out the birth certificate: (BTW we named him Puppy Dog. Original I know)

And I now realize I forgot to take a pic of the finished product complete with his ultra primo preppy outfit. I'll have to update later!!!

B-day recap!!

So last Friday was my b-day and some of the girls went to go see Mamma Mia. It was so fun!! There were a few little girls there adorning pink boas and claiming that "it was the best show EVER!!" Too cute!!


Then afterwards a few of us went to Trudy's for a good 'ol fashioned mex mart. Good times. :o)

Mosquitos suck

Especially when they bite my son on his eyebrow and it itches so much that he continues to rub it therefore making it swell... My poor Bubbers!!


From Matthias' perspective

I'm not sure why, but I ABSOLUTELY ADORE this picture. Matthias always takes my camera and snaps random shots without knowing it. But this one I feel really captures what things are like from his eyes:


So I think they like each other now...

Roscoe has finally grown used to Petunia being around. They're even snuggle buddies now!!

So the new deal around our house is...

no cable. YIkes!! Well here's the low down:

My wonderful hubby (i say that through gritted teeth) didn't pay the bill for some reason. he assured me that all oh "his bills" were caught up but apparently the cable wasn't (and thank God it was the only one) so the cable got cut off. I was a little annoyed at first, but not really bothered by not having it. Then we finished paying off our furniture so it was nice to have that extra money. SO I think we may have gotten used to that so we paid off the cable bill but didn't get it reconnected!! It's more money in our pockets and I'm not really missing it. AT ALL. Kinda sad huh?? So one of my odd goals is to watch every. single. movie. we. own. I discovered yesterday that some are still in the cellophane packaging. WTF?? I guess I've been buying random movies, storing them away and obviously not watching them.

So I watched a couple of movies yesterday afternoon, went for a walk, worked on Matthias invitations. Got a lot of stuff done. All b/c of no t.v. But I don't think our house will remain cable-less for long. Jason is all ready starting to gear up for football season and wants to switch to Direct TV so he can get the NFL SUnday ticket. I don't know, I guess we'll see...
