Last Sunday was Blessing of the Pets at our church. It's one of our favorite services, aside from maybe Easter. A pastor started it many years ago and our current pastor continued the tradition (and he wasn't afraid to grab Hoss around the neck and bless him - LOL).
The tiny princess wasn't sure what to think about all the pets.
Our neighbors had a baby (3 months ago, but who's counting) and I finally found the time to make them a baby gift. After I took this picture I added another square, slightly overlapping the striped square with his name on it, with a large embroidered 'H' for his last name.
I think my pumpkins might actually make... PUMPKINS! ;) The flowers are a good sign, right?
We don't have a Lilo, but... meet 'Stitch.' (Bubba's new nickname for LadyBub). She fell out of a dining room chair last night when we were eating dinner and, well, we had to load up in the car and drive to the hospital.
A brief piece of the scene? DB was holding her, covering her mouth with a dishtowel, and yelling obscenities while trying to direct all of us to get into the car. The rest of us were running in circles. The older boys were crying... Bubba was in hysterics saying 'I should have caught her, I should have caught her,' and Lil' Bub was in hysterics saying 'she's gonna be ugly now!!!' I was saying 'oh my God, oh my God' along with 'I can't look, I can't look.'
We ended up in the car with me driving with no shoes, the older boys in their underwear (and nothing else), and Baby Bub in a pullup (and nothing else). Thankfully LadyBub and DB were fully dressed, so they were the ones that went into the ER and the rest of us waited in the car for an hour.
She can still eat french fries, though, so we're good. (Oh, and she's the FIRST Bub to ever get stitches. Go figure, right? Girls are trouble.)
I took the kids to lunch to watch our neighbor (and, really, we have to come up with a better designation for him because he's family and 'neighbor' just doesn't sound right) sing and play guitar. He and his friend pick up gigs around town and this was the first time he had one during the day so the kids could go.
The boys ate and giggled and had a great time. And? We discovered a new place to eat that we didn't even know existed. It's out on the Pier and we've probably walked by it a dozen times and didn't even know it was there.
