We have a new member of our family. He came suddenly and unexpectedly. He is so cute and so tiny. He has sweet eyes and shiny, black hair. No, nobody had a new baby. That is human baby.
We have a new puppy! I give you Jasper. A six week old Boston Terrier Daschund mix
No mom, Jasper is not mine. He belongs to Cinderella, Tango, Butterfly, and D.D.
He is not very big. I think it might take some time before he can get on the couch.
It was Butterfly’s idea to put him in a dog purse. Hopefully he is comfortable with his alpha self. You have to be when you are stuck in a pink purse.
We might just have to start calling her Paris.
I went to babysit and um, puppysit. Everything was going well until I went to fix some dinner and all of a sudden we smelled…you guessed it. POOP! Butterfly and I found D.D. literally standing in the biggest pile of poop that I have ever seen come out of a puppy! D.D. apparently decided to pick up a fist full of poop so we had to rush him off the bathroom and get that crap off him. All the while Butterfly was laughing and told me in the years to come we would continue to laugh about this incident. Really?
Here is the little poopster.
The Poopster getting a bath. We all know why.
He also enjoyed some time in the puppy bed. Something tells me D.D and Jasper to will grow up close buds.
Sweet portrait. Everyone poop free.
At the end of the night everyone was tucked in and sleeping peacefully.
Successful babysitting and puppysitting adventure.

Since my move I struggle with keeping my chin up and a positive attitude. I know I should not, but it is what it is. I always go back to faith because I know that what I can not handle will be handled for me. I am so blessed with such a wonderful network of family and friends that will not let me fall.
Still, my heart aches. I pray for healing for some family members. I do not have power. Only faith and prayer.
I took a few photos of roses on Easter. Flowers are beauty.
They reminded me of the beauty of Easter. That and the kids, candy, eggs, bunny cakes, little boys in suits….

This is my youngest grandchild D.D. He is such a happy go lucky guy. We have taken to playing peek-a-boo. He hides. I hide. Laughter abounds.
Even upside down. Big smile.

I will soon share a room with the best roommate in the world. My granddaughter Butterfly. I am in the process of moving to a new city. Same state, just a new city. I am still unemployed and hoping to find better job prospects in my new town.
Butterfly and I are not strangers on the roommate front. She and Cinderella lived with us when Butterfly was an infant and she spent many a wonderful night with me as a young child. We get along like peas and carrots and she already has plans for activities.
Of course, Lucie my big, red dog will join us on this adventure. I already warned Butterfly about the possibility of Lucie joining this pajama party. We have plans to swim, walk Lucie, play with her little brother, D. D., and surely have some interesting conversations.
Not the best photo, although, the point is clear.
I am blessed.

We celebrated the holiday on Christmas Eve this year. Instead of the traditional dinner of turkey or ham, I made a large, hearty breakfast for my guests that included my son Hippie Guy, DIL Flower Child, twin grandsons Fuzzy and Wuzzy, Grandpa DingDon and Grandma M.
My daughter Cinderella celebrated with her family in the town in which they live. I heard Santa brought a new bike for Butterfly, my granddaughter and and activity desk for D. D., grandson. And somebody got a new Kindle. Lucky! I was able to talk to Sgt. Honda, stationed so far away in Okinawa. Unfortunately, he was feeling under the weather but we still had a nice conversation. This is not the first Christmas he was far away and I am sure it is not the last.
After breakfast, we opened gifts with the kids. I received a wonderful photo calendar from Cinderella and a framed photo collage of the twins. The boys opened presents of books and toys while shrieking and laughing. I tried to get photos but 21/2 year olds hardly stand still.
Lucie my big, red dog was a good girl even while having her tailed pulled slightly. She ran in the yard with the kids and umm Fuzzy happened to step in her, ok I will say it. Poo. Just one of the hazards when you have a dog.
Here is Wuzzy. Shrieking.
Fuzzy. Running, jumping, shrieking…
Here is Lucie and her Christmas present. A brand new comfy bed. As you can see, she is thoroughly enjoying her new gift.
On Christmas Day I went to see the movie War Horse. It was and inspiring and heartwarming. When I was a child I wanted a horse so badly. I even went to show-and-tell at one point in the first grade and said I had a horse. Somehow I think the teacher knew I was stretching the truth. Ok, I flat out lied. She played along with the story and did not expose me. Hey, I was only 6.
My only comment upon walking out of the movie was, “Now I really want a horse!”
Check out the trailer below.
Disclaimer: I was not compensated for my comments on War Horse. I just enjoyed the film.

I received this photo of D.D., my youngest grandson last night. He is sitting without assistance for the first time. Yea, he has his eyes closed but he is still cute as a bug! Check it out! He has man boobs! This kid is four months old and weighs 16lbs and is 26″ long. They done birthed a giant.
I think that me and Cinderella are going to be the only midgets in this family. At least there will be plenty of people around to get those cans off the top shelf.
But those cheeks. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I want to eat them up!
Check out my giveaway on Life’s a Box of Chocolates. Especially if you like pizza.

Tomorrow is looking to be a wonderful day. It is looking like my newest grandson will make his appearance. How excited am I? thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much! Yeppers.
Cinderella will be induced tomorrow I am praying it go fast. Tomorrow will also be a long day at work waiting to hear. But it is worth the wait. I will you all posted.
Still thinking on a bloggy name for him. I think I have come up with it.
Donum Dei. It mean God’s Gift in Latin. Because he truly is a gift from God.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PlayStation MOVE. All opinions are 100% mine.
What do you do as a family? Do you hike, swim or fish? What about when you are at home? Arts and crafts? Does your family like to play games? Maybe you are like many families and you play video games. If you do and have a Playstation3 you might want to learn about PlayStation®Move.
This is a new controller that gives you the ultimate control of motion thus giving you the ultimate gaming experience.
I love to play the sport games like bowling and tennis. I also love Rock Band. My son recently bought The Beatles Rock Band and we spent many hours belting out this classic music.
Whatever you prefer the Playstation®Move controller will enhance your gaming experience. Right now, you can pick up the PlaystationMove bundle for only $99.
Even though I am not a big video game person, I do like the versatility of the PlayStation3. I like that it gets you up off the couch and moving around. Let's face it; sometimes it is not possible to get outside. PlayStation3 can provide exercise and fun for the entire family especially during those long, cold winter months.
So, check out the new Playstion®Move and get your family moving!

Families go through many challenges together. Some are good and some are bad. There are weddings, births, graduations and sadly death. All of these events have occurred in my family. Sometimes when the bad things happen I believe I can try to help, but sadly that is not always possible. I wish I had a magic wand and could make the bad times good. But I do not.
After a particular bad day I watched the Oprah show. The Judds were on and I was always a great fan of these two women. It is well known about the problems in their relationship. I was glad to hear that they have reunited and will soon begin a new tour together. Oh what I would not give to attend one of these shows.
They preformed their signature song, Love Can Build A Bridge on the Oprah show. It brought me to tears as it always does.
I would like to dedicate this video to my family. All of them.
