We had to say goodbye to our friend today. Oreo was a very good dog & we're going to miss him a lot. It was very hard on Michael and harder b/c he had to make the decision for Oreo, but knew it was time and the right thing to do for him.
Emma's in her traveling mode! Earphones on watching Madagascar and her neck pillow!! We've had a lot of fun in SA. Saw the "Big Fish" (Shamu) and did a lot of playing in the water!! Nice couple of days away and will still have a few more to relax at home now before we have to go back to work!
Today was a good day. This morning we went to church with Jamie and Steven for Jacob's Baptism. The ceremony was very good and Jacob was such a good boy - as he always is! It was so sweet and when the pastor held up Jacob for the congregation to see you could tell he was straining just a bit...Jacob is a healthy little boy!! It was funny and got a laugh from the congregation, too! It was a blessing to see, though!
Emma was very good during the service, too. She is used to going to church as we go every Sunday, but she doesn't sit in service with us. She is usually in her Sunday School class while we're in the service. It is good for her to sit through the service, though b/c she needs to learn about being quiet during church. When she saw I had her flip flops in her bag, though she decided her lacy socks and church shoes needed to come off and she had to put her flip flops on - it was pretty funny actually!
We spent the day at Jamie & Steven's house - the girls alway…
When my sister bought Trigger (horse) they received this burrow for free - the grandkids heard him called free burrow enough times I guess that they decided it was the burrow's name. So - this is Free Burrow!
I'm late in wishing all the other mommies out there a Happy Mother's Day, but wanted to share this sweet picture - this is Polly & Brownie. Polly is my sister's horse (really her grand-kiddos' horse) and when they purchased her they didn't know she was going to be a mommy. A couple weeks ago, though she surprised them with this beautiful little girl.
Brownie is still a little shy & hid behind her mommy a lot, but she did come close enough to me once to take one nice portrait!
I took the day off Friday & mother came over to spend the day with Emma & me. Emma wanted to spend the night with her Teta & Geddo, so Michael & I ended up getting to have a date night Friday night! We went out to dinner at Pappa's (always yummy) & then to see Wolverine. Not Michael's favorite genre, but he is a sweetie and went b/c I wanted to see it. It was very good, but I have to admit I did like the other three X-Men movies better. We had a fun night, though - it's nice to have a date night every once in a while. Saturday morning we bought 25lbs of live crawfish & took it over to my parents' house when we went to pick up Emma. We didn't tell daddy we were bringing it & needless to say he enjoyed the surprise! Michael did a good job cooking it up, too. They were delicious!!
Teresa came over with Abigail & Jacob, too and after we finished eating we brought out the little pool - the kids didn't wait for us to fill it up, though b…
