Busy-ness and saying goodbye

It has been crazy busy around here trying to get all the puppies ready to go to their new homes. Last week, we sent green ribbon girl (Blondie), to the airport to fly to her new home in Texas. That same day, Diann came and got her two puppies (purple ribbon girl and red ribbon boy). That left just 4. The next morning we headed off to Portland to deliver two more puppies to their new homes. Orange ribbon boy (Wrigley) went to our awesome friends Albert and Julie. We are going to show Wrigley and use him as a stud dog later on. He is absolutely gorgeous!!! Blue ribbon boy (Zues) went to Ty and Christina. We went to high school with Christina and her and Gordon reconnected through Facebook. She saw our puppies and decided she wanted one. So, they both went to Portland. We spent the weekend with family and had a mini-vacation from home and returned on Monday afternoon. Tomorrow, we are taking pink ribbon girl (Faith) to meet her new parents, Rick and JoAnn, at the Twassen ferry terminal. They actually live on Vancouver Island, but are taking the ferry across to meet us. That leaves yellow ribbon girl. She doesn't have a new family yet. We are in the process of finding someone who will love her forever. Know of anyone who wants a beautiful yellow lab girl to love?
With the puppies almost gone, it is now time to do a little spring cleaning around here. I think we might have to call in the big guns and rent a dumpster!!! My kids like to collect things. It is time to go through their bedrooms and throw away the broken things. Anybody wanna help?

Speaking of new kitties.........

So, we finally decided to get the kid's the inside cat they have wanted for awhile. Gordon and I have never been cat people. We have always loved our dogs. The two farm cats we have outside have proven to be the best cats ever. We just love them. They like to come in at night and snuggle on the dryer and sleep the night away, then go back outside for the day. Our new kitty is a hoot! If you walk by him, he swats at you and tries to get you to play. The minute you sit down anywhere, he is in your lap wanting some attention. He also likes to sit as close to the keyboard as possible when we are on the computer. He is a lot of fun.

But then.....Gordon came home from work the other morning and asked me why there was a kitten in the puppy kennel with the pups. I didn't know there was, so I went out for a look. Sure enough, there is a kitten that is hanging out with the puppies, cuddling up with them, playing with them. It won't let us get anywhere close to it. It hisses and then runs, but continues to stay in the general area of the puppy pen. So, I guess for now, we have a ferrel kitty that came out of nowhere that is hanging out for awhile. Who knows, maybe it will be a nice kitty and become a farm cat also.
NO, we are not changing into kitty people. We will ALWAYS be dog people, but we have room in our lives for a couple of cute cats!!

Evan and Sierra's new toy

Ok, not really a toy. This is Fluffy. He is a barn cat that was at my friend, Diann's. He came to live with us because he is such a loving cat and Diann just didn't have time for four cats. Fluffy is an indoor cat. He loves playing with the kids. His favorite past time right now is to hide under the bed or couch and attack your feet when you walk by. He is really fun and the kids are having a great time with him. The bonus for me....he came potty trained to a litter box. Yes!!!!

So, today I am having a great hair day. I have been fighting with my hair for a long time now, and it actually looks great today. Problem is, Gordon is at work, Brad is at work, and the kids have school. There is no one here to share my great hair day with!!! What is up with that?!?!?!?

So, I decided before Evan and Sierra left for school, I would have Evan take a picture of my hair. Ok, don't look at me, just my hair. It's not like it is a great picture of me, but check out the hair!! Yeah!

Yes, I am a sad, weird gal who is enjoying her hair today. The things that make a person happy!! Jeesh.

My crazy kid

Evan has enjoyed having a mohawk since he was little. Every once in a while we cut it and start over, but lately he has wanted to keep it. We started out with purple. Nooksack pride all the way!!!
Then he went red for the holidays.

Now, we are blue. Why blue, you ask? We don't really know other than it is a nice color.

Today is the day

Today is the day that I try to get back into posting on my blog. I apologize to those of you who try to follow it. I have been overwhelmed with winter schedules and have slacked on posting. Obviously from the previous post, you can tell that even Gordon is hounding me about it, so, with that being said......

We have a new litter of puppies that was born the day after Thanksgiving. They are almost ready to go to their new homes, so I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

I will do my best to continue to update and post as often as possible. I don't promise daily posts, but I will try to post at least a couple of times a week. Don't give up on me!!! Thanks for your understanding and I hope all of you are doing well.
