Merry Christmas

Payslie cute!

Christmas this year was a blast! It was so much fun to have Payslie be a part of our Christmas this year. She didn't get what was going on and enjoyed the wrapping paper more than her presents but it was still fun. She did better than we expected her too with opening presents, she grabbed on to the paper and loved the tearing sound it made when she pulled it off and then into her mouth it went!


Our new puppy Jazzmin

so....we are getting a puppy!!! we don't get to take her for a few more weeks but we have been to visit her plenty of times already!! We have named her Jazzmin (BJ will be calling her Jazz for short) She is a English Mastiff...yes, they get HUGE! Payslie is getting the pony she has always wanted! We are excited to get to take her home next month.


here is some random pictures of Payslie since I haven't posted any in so long! She is getting so big I can't even believe it.

These ducks randomly showed up at my Parent's house and have been there for a couple of days. One even layed an egg in their yard!!! (don't worry, Brooky has adopted it already and has it wrapped in blankets, anxiously awaiting the day she gets to raise a baby duck!) They are quite friendly...although one did bite my leg (I might have egged it on though!) We went out and fed them bread crumbs and played with them for a while. I don't think Payslie knew what to think of them but we got some cute pictures anyway!


Payslie is 3 months old now! I can't believe how fast the time has gone! She is still as cute as ever and is so much fun. She entertains us with her babbling and laughing. She LOVES her bathtime and would stay in there all day if I let her. She is getting so big! 3 month picture (I couldn't get my pictures to turn for some reason sorry)

Splashing away in the tub

haha I just think this picture is hillarious!

WOW! It has been FOREVER since I updated the blog. So much has happened since my last post. I can't believe how big Payslie is getting! She's 2 months now and weighs 11lbs. She has been so much fun the last few weeks, she smiles at you all the time and is so responsive. She is almost laughing I know it will be any day now, she gets so close and squeels it is so cute! here is some random pictures of how cute she is, and some new posts of what we've been up to. Enjoy!

OOH We just love her so stinking much!!!! Look at her, how can you resist her cuteness!!

Last weekend, the fam got together and went to the Wilstead's cabin down at Otter Creek. It was so much fun. We rode four wheelers, went fishing, had campfires, and much more. We love to go camping and try and go everytime we get the chance. Thanks Steph for getting everyone together!
