Crazy Daisy

Time for a quick update on Daisy, our beloved Weimeraner. (Wilson surprised me early one morning in the kitchen and actually, Asked {gasp} me to take a picture of him and Daisy - don't mind the size 6-12 months pajamas that he is wearing b/c that is about all that will fit him in the waist - pretend they're supposed to be capri pants!!!)
Daisy is doing great - doesn't she look good? Well, that's only because I didn't allow her foot, that got hung in the fence, to be photographed. Put it this way, there is a big hole in her leg at the ankle and you can see about 2 inches of pure bone. Yep, it's pretty disgusting. She's handling it all well though - takes her pain medicine and antibiotics twice a day and soaks her foot twice day - well, we do that, she doesn't do it - we only wish. She did run (hobble) into my room Monday morning when my alarm went off - she still wants to go on her runs. Will told me she whined the entire time I was gone - he had to close her in our room so she wouldn't wake all the children up - and this was after I got in my car, closed the garage and drove down the street so she wouldn't think I was running. Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend at her house to run, so maybe Daisy will go back to sleep quietly. It's sad for both her and me to lose the running partner.

Next up was Emma Claire's Wildcat Soccer Party - the girls had a blast as always - such a fun time and memories that were made with these girls!!!! I can only imagine the future that lays ahead of them!!!!



























This little guy had his 12 month check up about 2 weeks ago. I forgot to post about it. He is doing great, but at only 17 lb 13 oz - barely on the chart at 2nd percentile.
Ya'll, I was so dissappointed (not in him, but just generally) - he is SUCH a great eater, I just knew he was going to be like 20 lbs or something.
His height was in the 10th percentile and his head was 50th, so that's better news. My little boys - I love them so!



This is the last week of 3 children in preschool - Yay Yay Yay!!!!!!! I decided to do bud vases of daisies for the 4 nursery teachers and director and supervisors - great idea until I got to my car and wondered how on EARTH I was getting all those bud vases to the school without spilling water or breaking flowers.
Well, the good news is that vans these days come with about 10 cup holders and pockets galore!!!!




















Wilson and Emma Claire's teachers got something special too!

I had some great helpers at school to deliver them to the deserving ladies!!!! Fairy Emma Claire is always willing to lend a hand - they had dress up day today and this is what she chose!!!


A day at the Lake and a Ballet recital are coming up this weekend - so be ready - I'm sure my camera will get quite the workout!!!!!

those weimaraners (sp?)--our maggs did that at some point in her life too..jumped over the fence (I think they think they are reindeers, b/c they sure can JUMP) and got her leg caught on the pole & tore it open--she had to stay at the vet for 3 days so they could keep her calm--after a HUGE vet bill and some recovery time--she still leaps & hasn't slowed down! hope yours feels better soon!! love the cookie cake!! yummmy!

Hi Kellie! I've been "stalking" for a while, but finally decided to comment. I love your blog and seeing those adorable children! Just a hint for the next time you need to travel with vases full of water: get a cardboard box and turn it upside down. Then cut holes just big enough for each vase to fit down into. My MIL is a florist, and this is a trick I've learned from her. I have a question also. Do you know where those turquoise and chocolate swimsuits came from that your relatives are wearing in the beach pics? Thanks a bunch!

no worries. my children have always been in the lower, if not lowest, percentile for weight and height. They all catch up and even if they don't, that's ok too. What would the world be like if we were all the same size. Glad Daisy is doing better. Hope you don't have to put any meds in that hole. I'm not sure I could handle that!! have a fun weekend.
