RIP, Copper Griffis

To call him a dog hardly seems to do him justice, though inasmuch as he had four legs, a tail, and barked, I admit he was, to all outward appearances. But to those of us who knew him well, he was a perfect gentleman." - 'p.317. ('The World is Square, pt. II

In Memory of Copper Pot Griffis

Our sweet dog passed away peacefully tonight of unknown causes at the age of 2 1/2, rest now copper.

The Cruise

We had a great time on our cruise & really enjoyed our day in Cozumel, Mexico. We did the power boat excurison which was totally fun ( although harrison drives a boat worse than a car & that can be a little terrifying)). Good times... but we really missed our girls...i just loved coming home to some sweet baby kisses...... harrison & I found some awesome conch shells on a little desserted beach we stopped at. ANyways......good times, good food, good sleep ( we go on a cruise & go to bed at 8pm, were catching up on 4 years of lost sleep!)

Copper and The Girls

Our Family Dog Copper Pot Griffis & My girls Shelby & Reagan. As you can See Copper is HUGE! He puts his paws on my shoulders & he is taller than me!! His is a big playful baby. Blood Hounds are wonderful pets & very tempermental of kids. The only problem is they get really big & want to jump & play & clobber the girls. Little Reagan trys to let him out of his fence every little chance she gets, She got in the fence with him a few months ago, she came out luckily with just a slobbered up face & a few paw prints on her dress. My girls love there Copper.

Disney Weekend for Reagans 2nd Bday

I am a horrible blogger, I guess I feel as though the only thing I have to talk about is work, babies, chores, & I guess REALITY in general, so why bother! Well anyway..... We decided for Reagans 2nd B-day to do a trip to Disney World instead of a party (mainly because I was too tired to put the effort into planning a party)..... Little did I know Disney is much more of an EFFORT! But all in all the girls were pretty well behaved for a 8:30am - 6:30 pm disney adventure!

Oh by the way.........just because your kids like Mickey on TV does not mean they will love him as much when he is life size! Reagan was like "no way, get away, mickey is my size" she didnt like mickey in real life. other than that she loved it & shelby was just thrilled.

My #1 Daughter is growing UP! It makes me sad that she is already talking about buying her first car, loosing her 1st tooth , and she is obssessed with turning 8 for some reason ( I think it is because her cousin's Anna & Amelia are around that age). SOOOOO... She is turning the big 4 January 21st, WE are going to party hardy! Katys Kastle is my most favorite B-day SPOT....LOVE IT! MY # 2 Daughter is going to turn the Big 2 on Feb 26th, MY babies are growing up!
