The girls wanted to make my birthday cake this year. My two favorite cakes are a cookie cake or ice cream cake. We decided on making cookie cakes. I thought it would be easiest to just let each of them make a 9 inch cookie cake. They really had a lot of fun doing it!
I had to run some errands today. When I got home I found Shasta like this. Clearly she went around the house while I was gone and found some stuffed animals. She even picked up a cabbage patch doll and one of my shoes!!! I thought it was hilarious!
Summer is starting a new preschool today..practically in walking distance from our house. Nice to find something so close. It is pretty small which is good for her needs right now. She may be a bit like her parents and prefer small groups of people at a time.
Shasta became ill Sunday. She was having fluid leaking and eventually blood. We brought her in on Monday to find out she had a uterine infection and a small breast tumor. Uterine infections in middle age dogs are serious and require immediate surgery. The medical term used is Pyometra. She had surgery last night around 9 p.m. and had a full hysterectomy and the breast tumor removed. They said she did very well and was alert and looking around soon after. This morning she took a walk and was doing well. She currently is not interested in eating so we will need to keep an eye on her. We pick her up today after the girls get home from school.
Here is Kayla's 4th grade picture. Sniff, sniff, she is looking too grown up for me...I told her I want her to go back to being a 7 or 8 year old and never grow up. She sure is beautiful!!!!! Daddy and Mommy told her last night that we were going to have to install a home alarm system and lock her in the house just to keep all the boys away.
Here is a picture of our cat Lady. We rescued her from the local animal shelter last July. She is a beautiful Russian blue. She was very scared of us the first month. Once we let her outside she slowly started gaining our trust. Now she will let us pet her and pick her up. She is quite fond of eating and I don't think she has any interest in hunting. She is getting quite fat...LOL.
Here are some pictures of the new trailer we just bought. We are looking forward to some fun camping adventures. This trailer is only 19 feet long but has 3 pops out beds for sleeping. We think it will be a great start for our first trailer. The kids are all very excited.
