This is Rascal. He is a Jack Russell Terrier. Dennis and I got him last night and he is such a sweet puppy. We let the kids name him. Abbey wanted to name him Rascal and Brandon liked Bubble Gum. Bubble Gum really didn't fit him well so we went with Rascal. So far he has been a good puppy, but this is only night two so things may change. For those of you who don't know me, this getting a dog it a HUGE step for me. He was just too cute to pass up.
About a month ago, Dennis and I dug up the flowers beds in the front of the house and replanted them. It was a lot of work, but the house needed it really bad. The before pictures are after we took out all of the old plants that were there. We were going to put the house up for sale, but I think we have decided to hold off on that for a little while. The housing market is terrible. I would get my hopes up to move and the house would never sell. Maybe in a year or two! We also added a little patio to the back porch and it looks really great. It will be very nice this spring and summer.
Abbey had her birthday party Sunday at Fannin Lanes. Everyone had a really good time and Abbey got lots of good birthday presents. I was in charge of bringing her cake. Suzanne Barnette made her cake for me. It was so cute and very tasty. Give her a call if you need a cake made. You will be very happy with the way it turns out.
Abbey got a pink razor for her birthday. She was so proud of it. Brandon is really excited too. He can't wait until he turns ten so that he can get a black cell phone like his daddy. Hopefully Abbey will be able to keep up with it. So far it has been attached to her hip. We got her a swimsuit, DVD, board game, and something you throw the softball at and it comes back to you to catch.
Abbey had a GREAT birthday. We went to Ma's (her great-grandmothers) house Saturday for lunch to celebrate her birthday. She got some good gifts and a wonderful meal at lunch. We picked up her friend Sara and took her with us. Her cousins, Taylor and Chloe, were there and so was her Aunt Dee Dee (Daphne).
Today is Abbey's 10th birthday. Her party is at the bowling alley. I will post pictures from this weekend and her party later on today. She had a friend spend the night last night and we went and ate pizza. I hope you have a wonderful day today, Pookie!!!!!
