The Ozzman Cometh...

Well as most of you know, this weekend we are lucky enough to finally be able to pick up our little Ozzy! We are so excited to have him in our little family. He is going to be the most spoiled little bulldog in the world. Just ask anyone who has seen the preparations. He has his own little crate with a nice soft bed, his own little couch to cuddle on in the front room, and even a whole plastic tub full of cleaning supplies and first aid stuff. We are ready for this little guy. My only hope is that he will be happy in his new life and know that he is our world. I haven't even met him yet and I love the little guy so much! I cannot wait for Saturday!

If you know me, you know I have kind of weird crazy dreams. Well the other night I had a really nice dream. I actually really didn't want to wake up because I loved it so much. What was it about you ask? Well, I was surrounded by people I loved just hanging out at my parents house. All family and close friends of course. The best part was even beloved pets were there. Yes Tyson was there. For those of you who knew Tyson know why this meant so much to me.

Although Tyson came to our family through my Sister the 1stdaughter, he was always mine. At least I felt that way. When he was a kitten I went to visit my sister, because she lived in a different state. We instantly bonded. His brother Angus was always the talkitive social one and Tyson was always a little more reserved. To become friends with Tyson you really had to be patient and let him come to you on his terms, but once he did he was loyal to you as any dog would be!

After the 1stdaughter left to live in Provo, he and I became fast friends. My all time favorite memory of his was every night when I came home he would be waiting for me. He would hear my car as I pulled around the corner and he would run to the driveway and sit where he would not be harmed until I parked in the driveway. As soon as I opened the door to my car he was right there waiting for me. Mind you this happened EVERY night, and my Dad will atest that it was not early either, hehe.

He was my best friend. I still think about him alot and miss him so much. I know he is watching over our family and is very proud of all of us. I know he is thankful for the time he was here with us and is thankful for what was done for him. I know those of us who were there that afternoon will never forget it, but we have to remember that he loves us very much and is grateful for the help he was given.

Tyson will always be close to my heart. I will think of him always. I miss you and love you my Ty Ty.

I'm sorry for doing this to everyone, but I just have to!

This weekend was so much fun! The party went well, Little Miss had a blast and I hope she felt important. We went to the lake, we played princess games and ate cake. The 1stdaughter and family stopped by, and cousins met for the first time. Our whole family was together for the first time in a long time and it was wonderful! It was a very special weekend. I don't have any kidlets of my own so I love to spoil the nieces and nephew.

My favorite part of the weekend though was when I was trying to decorate the cake. My Mom was in the living room talking with family. Adan was tending to the baby, Bri was watching Little Miss and I. My Dad was at the table on his computer. The only people missing were the 1st daughter and her family. Little Miss loves music and singing, so my Dad played one of her favorite songs, "Little Wonders" from Meet the Robinsons, and of course she stopped everything to sing along. He barely got 30 seconds in and had to stop it because he and I were about to start blubbering like a couple of idiots. I had to save the cake from teardrops.

From the moment I saw that movie it instantly became my favorite. It reminds us to remember who we are and what the important thing in life is. Family. Although My husband and I are having trouble having kids, I don't feel we are missing out on a family. We feel so blessed to have the family we do. I am so excited to welcome the new babies in our lives to this amazing family. They truly are the Little Wonders in our lives. Thank you to my family for being who you are, I am who I am because you are who you are. I love you. And remember "Keep Moving Forward"

So sorry, I am a little busy at the moment

Sorry if I haven't posted something of any real importance, I am a little busy at the moment. I only have about 100 pages left of the last Bella and Edward book. It has taken me so long because I am trying to savor every moment of it. I will be really sad when it ends, I know it is just a book and they aren't real people, but they got me through the last 6 months of Rexburg.

Another reason to be busy is the upcoming Princess Party for Little Miss. When I found out that my sister was pregnant and the new little bit would be born around Little Miss' Birhday, I knew we had to do something for her. She is way into princess things, so what better way to celebrate? We will be making crowns, searching for the King's treasure and pinning the crown on the Princess. Hopefully that will keep a 4 yr old occupied for a little bit.

Anyways, I probably won't be back until sometime next week. So have a good week!
