Our Spring Break sure was busier than planned. Kurt’s birthday was fun and the Lego Stop-Motion Movie Making kit was a big hit. Now I just need to download Windows Movie Maker so that he can load everything onto my laptop instead of doing transfers to Kristen’s. I spent the day making Kurt’s requested foods: Waffles for breakfast (Um, Mom, I like the old kind better) with sausage. Lunch ( a late lunch because I had to run errands) was broccoli potato pancakes and smoked sausage – yum. Supper was sliders with french fries. And the final touch . . . .
the Lego Ninjago cake. Kristen did a great job, but we forgot to put the eyebrows on.
The next day was a shopping trip with the girls that scored their Easter outfits and jewelry. I even found a shirt to wear with my outfit.
Thursday brought us to Lexi’s Gotcha Day.
Meet our newest addition . . . Lexi! She’s named in honor of our friend Penny’s German Shepherd that was kicked by a horse and had complications and had to be put down. Penny has the most awesome dogs and when we saw Lexi and how German Shepherd she looks we had to name her after our friend’s dog. She’s 1/2 boxer, 1/4 German Shepherd, 1/4 Norwegian Elk Hound. She is a real cuddle bug. Her favorite place is curled up beside you getting her oh-so-soft head rubbed.
Luke didn’t know what to think at first but he’s coming around quickly and Lexi is teaching him how to be a dog instead of a person.
Right now she looks like a donut hole on her big round bed, but it won’t be long before she looks like the cream cheese covering the bagel. I can’t believe I was once so adamant against another dog. Of course, I cant’ believe I was once so adamant against ANY dog!
I have a picture of Luke in this same position as a puppy. They’re the same size in the pictures but they wont’ stay that way for long!!
Saturday found us at the bowling alley for Kurt’s party and he and the boys had a wonderful time. I have a great picture of them, but don’t want to put other people’s children online without their consent. It’s a wonderful momento for Kurt of his first official birthday party.
And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm
