Introducing Fidget

Introducing the newest member of our family... Fidget, a 10 week old male red and white border collie : ) We've had for just over a week now and have enjoyed every minute of it. Don't get me wrong, he is a lot of work. He has to be let out about twice a night to go the bathroom and he wants to chew on everything but that is to be expected. Here are just a few pictures of Fidget.

Fidget pretty much picked us out instead of us picking him out of the litter. As soon as we got there he walked straight up to Cris and sat with him.

Border Collies are a very active breed of dog and need a lot of exercise. They are also extremely smart. Look up border collie tricks on you tube and you will see how smart they are : )

I love his green eyes. I hope they stay green. We met the mother and she had gold eyes so who knows, Fidget's might change when he gets older.

He has a lot of personality. I can't wait to find out what kind of dog he grows into. Right now we are working on teaching him to "come", "sit", and "drop". After that maybe will be able to teach him some more complicated tricks. For now, we will work on the basics.

I'm In The Mood For Fall

I am super ready for Fall!!! So ready for fall that I went ahead and sewed Navie her fall dress. The best part about the dress is that she can wear it now while its still a little warm and wear it when it gets cold by adding leggings and wearing a long sleeve shirt and sweater. Here are a few pictures of the dress but most importantly, a few pictures of Navie : ).

Navie is getting so big!

This one is my favorite : )

I love the expression on her face. "Seriously Mom, how many pictures do we need to take?"

My little angel. I love her so much!!!

Happy Birthday Navie!!!

Navie has turned 3 years old and to celebrate, we had a Disney "Tangled" themed party. Here are the pictures from the party. I think everyone had a really nice time : )

The decorations were all based on the decorations in the movie.

This is the food table including floating paper lanterns like the movie
: )

Here is a picture of Navie's birthday cake. I had a lot of fun making it
: )

We has simple refreshments. Pineapple, grapes, crackers, cheese, and an ocean of blue jello with little boats to represent when Rapunzel and Finn Rider watched the paper lanterns in the movie.

Super yummy grape bunch!

Navie got a bunch of presents. Most of them were different board games and craft supplies
: ).

I was very proud of Navie because she blew out all her candles in one blow!

I think Navie liked her cake : )
