Christmas Eve

Roxanne & Heidi are waiting for Santa!  They just know they will have treats in their stockings because they've been good girls. :)  
Meanwhile, I'm cleaning the house, stuffing stockings and planning dinner.  Kyle works until 7 tonight, so dinner will be around 7:30.  After dinner we'll make hot cocoa and then it's time for our tradition of taking a drive to look at Christmas lights.  
I had forgot about doing a post about my boots, probably because it's been in the 80's here. lol  Today we finally have a cold front, high is suppose to be only 66! :)

Hope everyone is having a joyful Christmas Eve!

Baking, Shopping, wrapping & picture taking!

We always send out photo Christmas cards to family and friends.  We always have fun with it!  Hubby loves sitting up the tripod, the pups start barking and we have Christmas music playing and cookies in the oven.  Most of the photos come out blurred because one of us move. LOL 

Kyle is no longer working as a life guard because we thought it would be getting cold (what a joke!) and he wanted to get some cash handling experience on his resume.  He's been working at Marshalls for about two months and is really enjoying himself.  He works the register 95% of the time.  We're very proud of him!  I do enjoy his 10% discount and on some days he gets 20% which is great considering it's already a discounted store with nice items. :)

I'm home alone right now, so I'm off to do more baking and visit some blogs. :)  I'll leave you with Heidi & myself, she's 5 lbs of sweetness!  XOXO's!!!

she's such a sweetie!

It's finally beginning to look like Christmas

It's finally looking like Christmas in our home!  We've been running so far behind this year!  Last night we put up the tree, stockings, baked cookies, we were singing and dancing and we watched Charlie Brown's Christmas.:)
We have another new family member and her name is Heidi.  Heidi's owner no longer wanted her or her kitten sister and my uncle took them in so they weren't thrown away.  My uncles oldest female pup didn't like Heidi too much and was picking on her, but my Grandma loves Heidi and she lives with my uncle.  Anyway, I now have Heidi, so now my grandma still gets to see Heidi and all is well.  Heidi fits in our family perfectly, she's feisty and we love her!  And our pups love all 5 lbs of Heidi!  She's 8 yrs young and so she and Roxanne are the same age. :)  
Now we have 3 1/2 pups and 1 kitty cat!  Life is never boring!

Spectacular Skies

I have so many sky pics!  Probably 50% of my cell phone pics are sky pics. :)  
Here are a few of my favs.

3 Wonderful Years!

December 10th was our 3 year wedding anniversary!  
Yep, we're still honeymooners! :)

While we were in NC we visited Lizard Lick.  Kyle wanted to get something there for his grandpa.  It's a small place, you could drive right thru it easily.  We didn't meet any of the famous people this time. 

Hope everyone is having happy days! It's in the 80's here,yuck!  I'll trade someone sunshine for a little snow. :)

Sandra, I am wearing my boots! Wish you could see them!  LOL

Our Rocket is 3!

Our Rocket turned 3 on this past Sunday, December 1st.  We've got a lot going on now and do feel bad that he didn't have cake, but he will be enjoying his birthday cake this coming weekend. :)  
We rescued Rocket from the local county shelter and believe me we were just in time.  We weren't looking for another puppy dog, but have you noticed that in life the best gifts are unexpected??  I've found that to be so true in my life. 
Happy Belated Birthday to our dear Rocket boy!

Rocket loves the camera.:)

sweet baby

We've never had a problem getting Rocket to relax. LOL

Happy Thanksgiving 2013

I wish everyone a Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!  I'm so thankful to have such kind & warm hearted friends in blogland.  
I'm also thankful that God's creatures of all shapes and sizes have a lot of times made their way to me.  And when they do, I never turn them away. :)
This little one below is a new addition to one of our Mama Squirrel's family and she has taught her little ones that they can trust me and to just give us this cute look and we'll pass out dinner. :)  Animals also trust and love my son.  He has never thought twice about helping an animal in need.  He also has a big heart for elderly people and for this I'm thankful!

I'll be with my family having a wonderful dinner and counting blessings all day because I'm so THANKFUL for life!

hugs to you all,

My Mommy taught me to share, so I have a acorn for you do you have a peanut for me by chance??

A Morning Glory

This lovely was waiting for me just outside my kitchen window.  One beautiful flower brought a big smile to my face.  Hubby is at work and I already texted him to tell him about it. :)  He knows I've been looking forward to these beauties.

It's another beautiful day here in Orlando.  Today is suppose to reach 82, but tomorrow should only reach 70 and Thursday should be in the 60's...time for my boots! :)

Happy Saturday to you and yours!

Shake It Off

It's very rare that a Mocking bird hangs out long enough for me to snap a pic.  This time I gotcha ya!
I've seen Mocking birds fighting off Hawks, they're some brave birds.  I guess I can relate because I'm a mom and would always fight off predators to protect my young. :) 

We've had family visiting from out of state, birthdays and life stuff going on.  
Hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week.  We will be eating Turkey as always.  Do you eat turkey or have a different tradition??

Shake it off. lol

I Love My Veteran Everyday

Thank you, Veterans!  

My hubby was in the Army for 12 years and served in Iraqi Freedom II.  I have an uncle that served in Vietnam and an uncle retired with the Air Force.  I'm blessed to have them all in my life.

This is a picture of my hubby in a Chinook helicopter in Korea.

Hibiscus Special

I found this little Hibiscus at Lowe's home improvement store.  It was on the clearance table.  I paid .25, only a quarter!  Love it!  And just look how beautiful it is blooming.  These pics were taken on this gorgeous Friday morning here in Florida.  It's only suppose to be a high of mid 70's today, so I'm very excited!  
Hope your Friday brings you lots of smiles. :)

fall blooms in Florida...

beautiful from all angles...

More of Cary, NC

I have more of beautiful Cary to share with you.
I can't believe it's already November!  I'm not Christmas shopping yet, but I do love Christmas music.  My son took me to Starbucks over the weekend and he played Christmas music for us to enjoy, we both love it. :)

Happy Halloween 2013

Hope everyone is having a fun and safe Halloween. :)  Kyle went to a friend's Halloween party.  He and his girlfriend, Kiersten, dressed up as Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm.  She made her costume and Kyle made his.  
Rocket wanted to keep Kyle's club for himself and Rambo was intrigued by the jack-o-lantern.  He even started to growl at it!  lol

I think Rocket thought the club was a turkey leg. LOL
That is Roxanne's nose at Kyle's knee. :)

Back To Cary

We went back to visit Cary, NC.  The weather was perfect, about high of 65 everyday with sunshine.  I didn't miss the Florida weather at all, but I sure missed our puppy dogs.  
We are still moving to Cary, but not until after the first of the year.  I'm getting so excited to start our life there!

Hope everyone has been doing well.  I will be visiting everyone's blogs soon. :)

everyone knows I can't pass up these guys. :)

these two were so sweet to look at the camera. :)

we pulled over in the parking lot to take pics. :)

My Baby Girl

How can puppy dogs look so sad?  My son still uses a  "puppy dog" face and pretty please when he wants something. LOL
This is a pic of my baby girl, Roxanne Love, relaxing on our her couch. :)  She's the queen, full unlimited kisses and she's feisty! 
Hope everyone is enjoying their day!  It's too warm here today, but we have sunshine and so it's beautiful.

My First Owl

While hubby and I were going out the other night, we spotted this Barred owl. He was sitting on a power line above the road, it was so exciting!  We rarely see an owl in the city.  He was pretty big and just gorgeous!
I started taking pics through the open sunroof.  They didn't come out great because it was night time, but good enough to share. :) 

Just want to say that I've had a lot of extra stuff going on in life and I miss seeing everyone daily, but I'm doing my best to get back here. :)
