Easter 2009

Yes, that's my bossy voice telling the kids to leave some eggs for Scout! Poor Scout didn't know which way to run or what to do... so Kelly helped him find some eggs, and everybody was happy!

It was really great to visit with YoonKyeong and Evan during the holiday! I sure wish they lived closer... but I guess with their new move to Colorado they are a lot closer than Virginia!!!

Agility countdown...

And so it begins... agility season!
We've been pretty slack this winter about practicing, so now we need to hurry and get back in gear.
These pictures were taken by a few of my teammates at our last couple of practices. Meg just LOVES agility and is SO excited whenever she sees the "agility bag" come out.
I know you can't tell from these pictures, but can I just say
Yes, we are crazy... we still practice in the freezing temps. I guess we are agility addicts!
Our first competition since last fall is coming up next weekend, so the countdown is on!
We will be practicing like crazy this week in the hopes that we can get synced again and can not embarrass ourselves. :)

Dog gone tired...

Quail in the yard...We've had tons of Robins in our trees, and they love picking the berries off of the Hawthorne tree in the front yard.

Meg and Steffi

Meg napping in the sun...

What? Why'd you wake me up? I'm dog gone tired!!!

Pretty girl!

Dancing Queen...

Brooklyn had her first tap dancing class a couple of weeks ago. These are pictures from her first class. She thought it was great fun!!!

She's Belly Up!

Just a quick little entry to show you how Tika sleeps...

It always puts a smile on my face when she does this. My two shelties are side sleepers who don't like to show their belly, so it seemed unusual to us when Tika came to our house to see a dog sleep like this!

She will flop down like this right in the middle of the floor, so that anyone who is going in and out of the room have to step over her. She doesn't seem to mind though, as she never budges an inch when we do!

Tagged By Shannalee..

This is a picture from my 5th file and the 5th picture in that file. This is a picture of the flowers my mom sent me for my birthday three years ago. My birthday is at the beginning of January, and those flowers were such a good boost to my winter blahs! Spring and Fall are my favorite times of year. I love it when the flowers and plants start peaking through the dull winter soil. I love to see the outdoors come alive with plants, animals, and fish (in our pond).

Okay... I'm tagging Melanie!

In a Fog...

Well, it seems we've been living in the fog for a couple of weeks now. I've never seen the fog last this long, it's really strange. I am SO ready for some sunny days!!!

These pictures were taken from the car as we drove east on I-84 from Boise on our way to Lava Hot Springs. It was really pretty because all of the trees were "iced" and so were all of the power lines, fence wires, etc...

Kelly and I celebrated our 12th anniversary on Sunday, and we kind of have this tradition of going to different hot or mineral springs for our anniversary. This year we went to Lava Hot Springs with the kids. They had never been to a hot spring and thought it was pretty cool that the water was so warm and that it came right out of the earth that way.

Other than that things have been pretty routine around here...
