My son Austin

My daughter Alyssa

Some relationships start from conception, like my wonderful children.

Jill and Casey

Others start when you adopt them, such as our sweet and rowdy dogs, Jill (aka Jilly Bean) and Casey (aka Casey Dilla).

But some of the most surprising ones are when you are adopted.  Meet Voodoo, who came to us Saturday when Casey found her and tried to chew her up.  After rescuing her and putting her outside the gate, I expected not to see her again.  Tuesday morning Alyssa found her sleeping in the chicken coop.  Guess that means we now have a kitty.

2014 Christmas Project

August is a difficult month to pick a theme for as there are no holidays, other than my father's birthday, and no historic events that really stand out.  It does happen to be the peak of the dog days of summer though, so the theme is summer, family, and friends.

We do like our glue and glitter for this month.  We kept it simple and sparkly.  A little canned air help get the blue glitter out of the orange starfish.

Stay tuned for next month's ornament, and keep on creating!
