Momma's little helper

I have been trying to get our front porch painted. It has looked so bad for so long. Xander ALWAYS wants to help mom paint. Usually it's inside the house and it's a firm no. But today I decieded to strip him down and let him go to town.

So just remember. the next time you come over, and you think our porch looks like it has been painted by a two year old, it is probably because it has!

Super Granny

So Xander has a new fascination........It's Super Granny! He LOVES LOVES LOVES this game and he drives Nick and I crazy with it. He always wants to play 2 players so that one of us has to play it with him.

The other day he conned me into playing and when we beat the bad guys and saved all the kitties he gave me a high 5 and a big hug and said in the sweetest little voice. " Mom, You're my Best Friend"

I love being a mommy! Do all two year olds play computer games?

WE FOUND HER!!! A week to the day and almost to the hour, we got our dog Sakoia back. A very nice lady from SnakeRiver saw her running down the old Riverside highway by the train bridge and stopped and caught her. She tracked down our number and called us! We have never been so happy/relieved in our lives! We love her so much and are happy to have her back where she belongs!

When it rains it pours!!!

Everything about this week I can just about say I wish never would have happened.

First the call comes from my sisters boyfriend that she has been in a boarding accident. Abby was surfing behind the boat with a bunch of guys, fell off the board and it bounced up out of the water and smacked her in the face on her left cheek bone just under her eye. It was a very deep cut and she had to have 12 stitches in her face.....(that is the one thing that all young girls FEAR their whole lives are scars on faces)

Then we were going out of town on the third to visit Nicks family and celebrate the 4th in Malad. We left about 6:30 and about 8:30 I get a call that my baby Koi (she's a 6 year old boxer) had jumped the fence and Abby and Kam couldn't find her. My greatest fear is losing one of my children, and never know what happened to them....I have be so depressed and so sad even my two year old comes and loves on me saying mommy don't cry. I seriously would do anything in the world to get her back. We were told that I 14 year old boy had found her and had her down at the skate park bragging about his new dog. I pray and pray that she is alive and safe and the maybe he sees a reward poster and wants the money more than he wants my dog.....but believe you me!!!! I am not going to rest till she is found. If you know any one at the skate park that may or may not know anything please pass this along.....I have to have her back! She needs me and our family needs her!

Then today my little niece Easton slammed her right middle finger in her bedroom door and chopped it off. It was pretty mangled and not much that they could do but hope it heals and that it MAY POSSIBLE grow the nail back.

I am exhausted. I can Honestly say it was the worst 4th of July weekend of my life. I haven't cried so many tears, or felt this kind of pain in a long time.

Please bless that Sakoia can be returned safely to us. She is a part of us and I do not want to go on with out her in our lives. We Love You SaKoia McRuff!!!
