Last cast picture! Eating crackers!
All done! Posing for mommy
Yummy blue icee at Target, her most favorite place!
Paige and her daddy enjoying the baseball game, don't they look like they are having fun?
When we were walking to the car after the game, she said, "It's a beautiful day!" It was.

Here we are at our 10 year class reunion about a week ago. We had a good time and it was good to see everyone. Only 14 out of 37 came, but it was still fun. Paige made two new friends and also had a ball.
Here is Paige at her first bowling outing, she loved it! She did not want to give back her orange ball, but got a pink balloon and played games in the arcade and won some prizes there too.
Here she is doing the granny roll!
Today we had a birthday party for my mother's 60th birthday. Here she is after blowing out her candles.
Me, Bear Bear and my sister Erin.
Having fun and opening her gifts with help from Paige. Happy birthday Bear Bear!

Hope everyone had a very happy Easter! We did! Here is a very lucky picture that I got of Paige in her Easter dress that I made myself the day before Easter! (Yes, I love to do things last minute!) I made it in her favorite color, "lellow!" She and her cousin Maddie had a great time playing and hunting easter eggs.

A beach towel for a 1-year-old birthday present!
Burp cloths for church baby shower gifts: the one on the left is flannel and was for a boy, the one on the right was for a girl, I was not near a fabric store that day so I went in Pier One and bought a napkin that felt soft and looked pretty and used it!
Can't take all the credit for these, they were a last minute baby gift for work, Mama monogrammed and appliqued them for me and I put the ribbon on when I got home.
Lots of people I know are having babies recently or coming up soon, so I am having fun making all these fun gifts!

Our sweet puppy, Goofy, went to doggie heaven yesterday, and I am still in shock.
Garrett's sister, Hannah, has a dog that had a litter of puppies last October. Garrett had just lost his favorite dog of 9 years, Daisy, recently and wanted to get one of the puppies. I really didn't want one because I knew it would be something else to take care of, and I wasn't sure how Roscoe (our weenie dog) would like it. But I am an animal lover, and I could tell Garrett really missed Daisy, so I gave in. Well he called me at work one evening and wanted to bring one of the puppies home, but couldn't decide which one, so I said to bring 2 or 3 home and we could decide which one we wanted. He brought home his 2 favorite, both boys, and they stayed a couple of days. We had planned on just getting one, but after they stayed awhile, we just couldn't take the other one back! Most people, and our common sense said this was a bad idea to get 2 dogs! But it turned out to be wonderful, they loved each other so much, they did everything together. They played, slept, ate together, and kept each other company. They didn't have names for a long time, and we finally got Paige to name them, and she picked 2 wonderful names: Goofy and Donald of course! And she could tell them apart, she always called them by their right names! They had just been the greatest puppies, and we all really loved them.
We had noticed they were not eating as much lately, but we thought they were just slowing down their growth. They still played though and acted normal. Saturday morning, Garrett noticed that Goofy was not jumping up on the fence to see him like Donald was, but didn't think too much of it. Sunday morning when he went to feed them though, Goofy was very sick. It seemed to happen so fast, or maybe it was just that he was a pretty mild mannered dog and we just didn't notice it as much. We knew he didn't feel good, but thought he would be okay until the next day and we had planned on taking him to the vet. We came home Sunday night to find sweet ole Goof had left us. It still doesn't seem quite real to me, because he seemed fine just 2 days ago. I really never thought this would happen, we thought about all the other aspects of having 2 dogs, but never this one. Goofy was a great dog, and I wish we could have had him longer. Donald, whose personality is very different, but still great, was very sad last night. He sat outside the door looking at us and crying. This broke my heart! And he looks so lonely sleeping, he and Goofy used to cuddle up together every night, I was so used to seeing them together like that! But tonight he was much better, he only cried while we were cooking supper, but has been fine after that. Paige knows that Goofy is gone, but forgets easily where he is. I told her he is in doggie heaven with Jesus, and she is happy with that. She asked me if daddy took him there, and I said no, God did. Tonight at supper she still said thank you God for Roscoe, Goofy and Donald.
So this is my ode to Goof-Goof, as I called him! Wish we could have played longer and that you could have grown up with Paige! We miss you!

And after, hard to tell in this picture I know, but we planted 3 azaleas, 2 wallflowers (28 cents each, good eye BearBear!), and 5 phlox (the purple ones in front). They look like we placed them in kind of odd places but they will spread so it didn't really matter where we put them. And they will all come back!
You can see the plants better in this picture.

Here is how far we got tonight, no we did not clean up our mess! We were tired! I did all the painting and Garrett did the floor, we both almost finished! Paige really helped a lot, she would bring her daddy the floor tiles and peel the paper off the back for him!

Stay tuned for the after pictures! (But don't expect them TOO soon!)

Here is one of the towel creations they did in our room, we're pretty sure it's a puppy dog wearing Garrett's sunglasses.
Here's Garrett posing outside of Fat Tuesday in Cozumel. We didn't see the hat at first, and some lady sitting nearby started yelling,"You have to wear the hat! It's no good without the hat!" She got up and helped him put the hat on. Funny picture!

Paige finally got her hair cut today. Mommy finally made herself do it! She was very excited at first but once she got in the chair was not very happy. I didn't get much video because she wanted me to hold both of her hands, and she just looked down most of the time. I tried to show her the animals on her cape but she didn't really care! She just got a trim and we saved some in a ziplock bag. She remembered that part, because she told her daddy and Bear Bear that "they cut it and put it in a bag." They gave her a blue sucker afterwards, and she is still sporting her blue moustache.
Showing off her new "do" afterwards! Her Uncle Chris will probably still say she has a mullet!

Probably all I will blog about are the cute things that Paige says. I always say that I wish I was writing down all the funny things she says so I can remember them, so maybe this can be my way of writing them down! Tonight we had a get-together with friends and we played a little Rock Band. Paige got to play some too, she loved the drums, microphone, and "bootar" (guitar).
We got in the car to go home, it was pretty late, and she said very sadly, "I don't want to go home, I want to do more band." Garrett and I just laughed and he said,"How sad Mama!" Then we asked her if we could be in her band and she said yes. Then it turned into this,"and Man-Man, and Allison, and Madison, and Cole, and Brandy, and Daniel, and Stacy, and Paw Paw, and Bear Bear, and Erin, and Chris......." and on and on. She is so silly. Then she told me and Garrett that we could play the "bootar" and she would sing. Her Paw Paw will be proud. Well the computer is acting crazy, I'll add pictures later!
