Yup,  Another month has come and gone and I am still lagging behind on my blogging.

I miss those days when I would log on to my blog and feel inspired to write and create.

I've gotten so ...
I don't know..
blog lazy.

When I look back through my printed blog books they bring me so much joy and each entry takes me back to a special date in time. 
That is what I am missing the most.

Looking back,  I can literally watch my girls grow up again.  : )   


We started the month out quietly.
Michelle is still living in Switzerland and Sally finally started driving school.  She's been ready to drive for so long and I've been putting it off.
I was totally being selfish.  I just know that once she is driving that I won't see her as much.
I really hate that my girls grew up.
Really really hate it.

A few weeks into the month we picked up our new baby.  (replacement child)

Meet Stanley,
the 10 week old Labrador Retriever 

Isn't he adorable!!

Stanley has already filled our hearts with joy and house with laughter.

rolly, polly, clumsy puppies
make everyone smile.

However,  Sharky and Darla would beg the differ.
He gives them a lot of exercise.
Sharky is his absolute favorite!!!

Then there was Inauguration day.
Although I never bring politics in to my blog,  I will say that I was super excited to celebrate this Inauguration.   I'm kicking myself for not going to DC as planned but we were worried about protesters ruining the experience.   

I voted for this president.
and I stand with him.

While chasing and potty training a puppy, teaching Sally to drive,  and yelling at the television,  I have managed to work in a few fun projects that I will share soon. 
See that cute bench that the dogs are sitting on? 
I'm going to show you how easily I made it.

Wishing everyone a happy February!
God bless America.

    It's quite delightful, to find bloggers, who do not sound like 'Liberals' and 'Snowflakes'. Not totally necessary, but very nice, to do so.
