Happy Holidays

Monday Blues Conclusion.....

Our plumbing is fixed!! And I am not gonna lie, it cost A LOT more than we thought it would and to think that Matt did most of the digging and all of the re-filling of the "Trench"! Since it is Winter we will leave the flower bed/shrub bed area naked and come Spring we will start from scratch!

And if you recall me saying how it seems to be "One thing after another"?? I know that it is life and that is that...... so last night I was laying on the couch with Abner and I got alarmed and when I looked at him he was convulsing, his eyes were dilated and he was unresponsive. I tried to
"Snap" him out of whatever this is and comfort him but I flipped my lid because something was very very wrong I yelled for Matt and we loaded up and went to the ER. It appears he had somewhat of a seizure. It was heartbreaking. By the time we reached the ER he was normal again so we stayed for an hour, ran blood work and they observed him. The conclusion is.... that we are not sure what caused this? His blood work is good and is heart sounded good also. SO hopefully this was a fluke! Matt is at home today with him since we are suppose to monitor him for 24 hours! I love this little guy so much and lets all pray for him and that this event was the last of the unexpected at out house!!!!!

Monday Morning Blues

Happy Holidays! I hope yours were great and don't get me wrong ours were wonderful, it is always nice to enjoy & spend time off with family. But...............
One of my favorite sayings is "When it rains, it pours" and another saying I love is " God only gives you what you can handle" so with that being said here is what we have on our plate right about now..........

I. Abner, he is such a blessing and I would not trade him for the world he was free and since then with his check ups and dental work we have invested around $600 into him! And this weekend we took him to the animal ER and found out he has an intestine infection (poor baby) he is doing better but they told us "No treats or people food" well, well, well.... Matt is at home today and picked himself up Mickey D's and he walked into a different room and WHAM Abner ate the entire double cheese burger!! Quickly followed by an upset tummy!

II. We have a water main break! NO JOKE, The plumber is there now with Matt and we need everyone to pray that it is only under our flower beds and not under our foundation and right now they are not sure. So this afternoon they will be ripping out all our shrubs (which are not cheap) and digging a couple of feet down to find the problem and stop "Stream Savage" which has been flooding our front yard! NOW if it is under our foundation we will literally have to tear up our flooring and use a jack hammer thru our concrete in our living room to dig under the house!!! Which means MOOLAH out the WAAZOOH!

I will keep you updated!!!!!!!!!!!

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

Dewey By Vicki Myron....

I just finished this book a couple of nights ago and I guess you can call it the Cat version of Marley and Me! This beautiful book cover is a picture of the actual cat Dewey! To give you a run down without giving too much away... one morning a Liberian (Vicki) finds a kitten in the book drop box and that cat becomes Dewey Readmore Books the library cat. This story is about the small town of Spencer, Iowa and how this one cat touched the lives of the people who live there and in return what big hearts the people of Spencer have. This book was an easy read and a very sweet story. I did shed some tears at the end but as everyone knows I have a soft spot for animals. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals or anyone who is in the mood for a heart warming story!

Have a wonderful weekend! Mine is filled with my Mom's Birthday Celebration and a Baking Extravaganza on Sunday! Wish me Luck!

12 Days of Christmas

I know I post too much for anyone to keep up BUT I am always finding things I love and wanting to share them! This is a group "Straight- No Chaser"

Kendall Reese Kingry

This "cutie-pa-two-tee" is our God daughter! And her beautiful mommy is my best friend Melissa. Long story short I love Melissa and she was actually the person who introduced me to Matt. We have been thru many important events in each others lives but Kendall will probably Top The Cake!!

Kendall was born September 4 and has been a blessing to her mom & dad ever since. Here is their personal baby website if you would like to check it out....

I posted a couple of my favorite pics her the most recent Christmas pic with her mommy, Kendall's Darling OU outfit that her ulta cool God Parents got her (hehe) and the picture of the first time we held her about 15min after she was born!

Angels & Demons

Angels & Demons By Dan Brown..............

SO as many of you know, I LOVE to read! And last Friday I finished Angels & Demons. I saw the movie trailer and thought to myself now is the time before the movies comes out in May. The book is the "Prequel" to the DaVinci Code and it does not disappoint. It is very complex and very fast paced. One reason why I loved this book as well as the DaVinci Code is much of the book is fact based and in Angels & Demons you are thrust into a race across Rome at real places with real history. (It makes me sad that my mom & sister have been to all these places and I have not) but Dan Brown has a photo companion on his website so you can picture and visualize what you are reading. It was nice imagining Tom Hanks while reading this book and I can NOT WAIT for the movie to come out. This book has soo many twists and turns you are still caught by surprise up until the last 5 pages. I recommend this book for anyone who loves to read but especially if you love history and travel as much as I do. I attached the Movie trailer below............ Enjoy!

In case you were wondering I am now reading "Dewey" by Vicki will be soon!

Sunday Sweets...

So we kinda started this "Sunday Sweets" a couple of weeks ago ... I usually make a dessert on Sunday and once Sunday I called mom & dad to see if they would run over and have some and they said no BUT Marissa said I will be right over... So Sunday nights before her Bible study Marissa comes over for dessert and a ton of doggie kisses!
(They go crazy for her)
Well last nights was SOOO easy and good.. I saw a recipe in a magazine and I changed things up and it turned into this.....

Nicole's Easy Apple Cobbler
- 2 cans of Apple Pie Filling
- Brown Sugar
- Cinnamon
- 1 Package Grands Biscuits

5. Brush Biscuits with butter then sprinkle with Cinnamon and sugar!

Marley & Me

Marley & Me by John Grogan....
I have been meaning to read this book and since the movie is coming out Christmas Day I decided now or never! And let me tell you.. young, old, male, female this book is wonderful. The jest is it is a memoir of the life of the Grogans told thru Marley and his stages of life. It is soooo funny, heart warming but most of all touching. This book really touched me and it is a 5-tissue read at the end. Not in a tragic way but in a utterly touching way that you must have a heart of stone if you don't shed a tear! I give this book 4 1/2 stars out of 5!
I can not wait for the movie to come out Christmas Day, it looks sooo funny but just so you know you might shed a tear or two in the theatre so be prepared!!!!

Welcome Home......

Meet..... Abnor Gundy Savage......
we brought him home on Friday and he has been a complete joy! The kids get along perfect and he is a SNUGGLE MACHINE! He is in good health, prolly around 6 years old and the only thing is that his teeth are in bad shape so he goes on Friday for some dental work! He came to us from a friend of a friend who is in Vet school at OSU (hence his middle name) and she couldn't bear to give this little guys back to the shelter so after much thought and prayer on our part we realized that he is suppose to be in our family and God sent us to him so he can live out the second half of his life in complete joy and love!
