15 minutes of crafty!

I did a little crafty project for Anicah's birthday. Since it's more craft and less ABOUT her birthday I wanted to do it separately. Enjoy.

It's that time of year again!

Anicah turned 3 at the end of September. This year was not only without daddy but also without grandma, grandpa, aunt, & uncles! I am not normally a party parent. We celebrate milestone birthdays, but still have a "family day" with the grandparents, and any family that happens to be in town for the non-milestone years.

This year is different. The "family" is mom & sis. That's it! Which isn't different than any other day, except there might be cake. So I folded. I did a party for a 3 yr old. I will say, I thoroughly enjoyed it...and I hope the other participants did. Anicah seemed to!

In case you want to reminisce about other birthdays, you'll find details in the links. :)

Jocelynn was refusing to smile for pictures...So dad had to tickle her! It seems to have worked. This was the night before he left. I love when Anicah does her "cheese" smile...And due to freakin' not being able to get any other photos to post, THIS IS IT!! Argh!

Who burned the Bacon?

The newest addition to our family has passed. It took just 5 weeks for me to single handedly mastermind the demise of our second guinea pig.

I thought he was cold. So I turned on the heat, and put some cloth scraps into his cage so he could make a nest. Turns out shivering in guinea pigs is usually a sign of disease.

Sorry, dude.

We couldn't even give him a proper burial, since we can't bury dead animals in our yards on post.
