Diesel. Let's get one thing straight. I am not a fan of dogs. At all. But, when we saw this little guy, we couldn't resist. Between Diesel's blue eyes, and Gaje's blue eyes begging me for a dog a few nights before, I caved. Especially when he said, "Mom, can I please have a dog for a friend?" It also didn't help the way Ryan was loving on him either. Too much. Gaje and Pyper had no clue what was in store for them when they got home Sunday evening. Gaje was completely shocked. He could not believe it. Pyper screamed, and jumped into my arms. She did not like him one bit. But, today Pyper loved on him. She sat next to him most of the morning and bossed him around. Gaje rocked him to sleep and played in the hose with him. He also hasn't left Diesel's side. He snuggles up in Gaje's lap and loves life. Pyper hasn't said anything but "NO, no no!" to him since we got him. I am sure Gaje is relieved both to have a best friend and to be getting a little slack from Pyper's bossiness. Gaje finally got his wish "A dog for a friend". He is adorable, for now.

If You Give a Princess a Cookie...

If you give a princess a cookie....

it will make her think of milk....

that will make her think of her baby,bottle and blanket....

which will make her think of her favorite fluffy, cuddly puppy....and night night time

that makes her want mommy to rock her, which brings mom to wishing we could cuddle forever.

Sweet Pyper Jane~ Please don't grow up. Just stay sweet, sassy, and tiny forever. Please wear tutus, and have your cute bob hair cut that you push out of your face, sing me your cute jibber jabber songs, and tell me your stories. Follow me around, be my shadow, hold my hand, and keep begging me to polish your toes like mine. Want me to put "pretties" in your hair, keep wearing my jewelry and shoes around the house, keep Daddy wrapped around your finger, beg him to sing to you at night. Be Gaje's best friend forever. Let me rock you, let me hold you when you cry, sush me when your baby is sleeping, let me find you making little messes that always bring a smile to my face. Fold your cute little arms when we say prayers, always smile and laugh when you see me after a weekend away from eachother, look at me through your big blue eyes like I am your world, and hug me tight always. I love you. Stay my sweet baby girl forever.

Steadfast and Immovable

The Penrod family went on a camping trip/reunion which turned out to be a lot of fun! Each family prepared a quick devotional and activity every day of the trip. We were not too thrilled about it at first, but that became one of the most fun and memorable parts of the experience. Our family theme is "Steadfast and immovable abounding in good works", and we even had super cute shirts made. It was such a fun time to escape the heat and troubles of the world and spend time with family up north!

Balloon Launching was OUT-OF-CONTROL! Seriously. Enough said. By the way, girls rule and boys drool.

Adorable clean Pyps, only lasted about 2 seconds, but she sure is cute!!

Pyps and her dirt crusted face, she rubbed her hands in the dirt, and with out missing a beat pushed her hair out of her face with her disgusting fingers.
