Goat-dog and dress up

Goat-dog and dress up

We now have a goat-dog in the house.


Cooper went to the groomer extra fluffy and came home nice and short. Just in time for the sloppy weather that is supposed to hit us later this week. Our poor groomer though. She is so good with the old dog, but he doesn’t appreciate her attempts to clean him up. She wasn’t able to trim around his face because he kept nipping. I told her not to worry about it. I’m actually thinking of keeping the goatee on him – I think it is hilarious!

Speaking of hilarious, this happened tonight:


It’s batman-doctor-wizard-ballerina boy armed with Need guns. The Shecklets definitely do not lack imaginations, that’s for sure!

4th bday party for #4

4th bday party for #4

We celebrated Shecklet #4 turning 4 with family and friends, cake and ice cream and temps in the 50s. Unheard of for MN in February. I thought the weather we had for Shecklet #2’s fourth birthday was amazing (when we celebrated outside) but today takes the cake – haha!

Just a few photos from the day.

Shecklet #4 and I had a chance to spend the afternoon with a good friend of mine and her sweet boys. While we were there, she pulled out gingerbread houses that the her son and Shecklet #4 got to decorate.



And I have a photo of me helping my godson! ❤️ This decorating stuff is serious business!

Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday to me

Another birthday, another year older. But I’m not counting. Just trying to enjoy the day, giving thanks for good health, family and friends to share experiences with, and looking forward to what’s in store for the coming year.

My MIL came up to spend some time with us and we had a chance to be outside enjoying the heavy, wet snow.


Jake donned his party shirt for dinner and cake tonight. Love how his guy loves loves me ❤️
