A Gingerbread House for Christmas!

 Rylie and I made a Gingerbread House for Christmas. She is so artsy fartsy like her Mamaw. We had a great time but ran out of white icing and had to use chocolate. Why did we run out? Well, someone really liked tasting the icing while we were decorating. We won't say who.

Steve and Baylee enjoying the WVU game!

 Baylee loves Steve! She really enjoys paying with him when he comes to visit. They are enjoying the WVU ballgame. I made Chili for the occasion although I did not make the Cinninati version. Good ole WV version. We won the game and should come up in the rankings to at least third. We will see.

Rylie is a Level Four!!!!


She is ready for her first competition! She loves gymnastics and looks forward to going to practice. We are so proud of her. It's hard to believe she is only 7 years old!

Bill's Aran Sweater is Done!

I finally finshed all the cables and Bill is now ready to model his sweater. He's a bit hot having to model outside so you can see the color better, but it fits him nicely and I really think he likes it. More photos on my knitting blog if you want to see more angles side and back. I did those cables everywhere even on the back. Let me know what you think! Leave a comment!

Check out Evan Jumping!

He loves this! Check out the short video clip at the right of him getting into jumping in the doorway! Why do they have to grow so fast?

Baylee's Surgery is Over!

 Now that Baylee has been given a good clean bill of health by her vet, it was time for the "spay" Not an easy thing for an adult dog and she had a couple of days of not feeling so hot. She oftens carries her toys in her mouth when she doesn't feel well or is scared. At night she places them in her bed like they are her puppies. It is so cute. She is back to her frisky self now and really doing great. She seems happy here and we love her. She is even doing better with Evan now that she is getting used to him.

A Day on the Bike Trail with Baylee

 Baylee's first trip out to the park. She really wanted to chase the ducks in the river. She did pretty well for her first time. Afterwards, of course a nap with Papaw.

Baylee Napping with Papaw

She's becoming quite comfortable here. She loves her toys, her daily walks, and her special treats that she gets once in a while. She still is afraid of the baby, but loves Rylie. She's healthy now and eating so much better. I think Baylee is feeling like she's home. She really hates storms and has to sit in our lap until they pass. She's just a big baby and we love her.

Baylee and the kids latest pics. Baylee is adjusting well to our home. She really seems content. Her health is improving with the antibiotics and vitamins. She loves the kids. Well, she loves Rylie but isn't sure about the baby yet. He scares her, I think. Everyone is so happy to have Baylee in our family. Bill, my husband is holding Evan and Stacy, my daughter is also in the pics. Enjoy!

Our Newest Family Member


We have a new dog in the house! We have been so sad since our dog Molly passed away but now have something to fill that hole in our hearts. She is so friendly and gentle. We are just so happy to have her in our family. I'm sure the grandkids will love her.

Evan is Sneaky


Rylie looks patiently resigned at Evan's latest hair pulling. That little smile of his makes you thing that he know's what he is doing.

Everyone got together at Stacy's house for picnic cookout and fireworks. Rylie loved playing with all her cousins.

Rylie looks so cute without her front tooth. Evan of course is giving that special smile to Papaw. He thinks Papaw is hilarious for some reason. It was a great day to have a cookout.

Back from the Beach!

We had a wonderful week in the Outer Banks. Being near the ocean always calms the soul. We took Rylie this year. Evan and parents couldn't come since Evan was born so recently and Stacy had used up all her time off for maternity leave. Steve and Kristina were still able to come and really had fun with Rylie. Next year, hopefully the whole family can make it. The weather was perfect and the water warm. I want to go back!

I think they are bonding!

Rylie is so wonderful with Evan. She is so gentle and he really smiles when he sees her. Isn't this precious?
