Have you ever…

…gotten a pie in the mail? I hadn’t–until last week! Jason’s dad’s specialty is rhubarb pie. I never had it before I joined the family, and it is SO good! I think he puts ten times as much sugar as the recipe calls for, which makes it super yummy! I was surprised at how well it held up in the mail, but it arrived intact and ready to enjoy. We did enjoy it, and had it eaten in about two days. Yum yum!

Daisy and Oscar are becoming party animals! The last two weekends, we have attended doggie birthday parties!

Last weekend, their friend Humphrey (who is a Havanese) turned 6 years old. See, we socialize with dogs other than just pugs! We went to a fun party Saturday afternoon with all sorts of fun dogs.

Mmmmm, doggie birthday cake

C’mon, let me have more cake

Daisy just had to lick the plate clean. Yum!

Humphrey’s had enough of this party stuff!

Today we went to a birthday party for just pugs. Pictures of that later!

Today Jason and I have been married three years! In some ways, it seems like it has been so much longer than that, but in other ways, it feels like it was just yesterday!

We were married in a tiny chapel in Buffalo Gap, Texas, that was built in 1918. It was a quaint and fun setting!

Our wedding party. The bridesmaids were three of my good friends and my sister, and the groomsmen were two of Jason’s good friends, his dad and my brother. The flower girls were Jason’s nieces.

Here is my handsome husband!

All in all, it was a very fun (and hot!) day! Marriage has been much harder than I anticipated it would be, but I am very blessed to have such a wonderful husband. When I am discouraged, he looks at the positive and knows that things will get better. Thank you, Jason, for being such a good husband! I love you very much, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us!

Happy Birthday, Daisy!
Daisy turns two years old today! She came into our lives almost two years ago and brought more joy than I could have ever imagined. Who knew I could love a dog so much? She has kept me going through hard times when not much else was keeping me going. Even though you love to chew all the door stops in the house, I love you baby smalls!

Daisy the day we brought her home!

Wild thing!

Mother’s Day Fun

Here is what I sent my mom for Mother’s Day. I LOVE pictures and love giving gifts that involve pictures. I found this coaster-making kit at Target and decided it would make a perfect gift for my mom. I included pictures of me and my siblings as babies and then a picture of all of us and Jason last Christmas (pugs included). Vanessa is the top left corner on the blue, Josh is the bottom left corner on the green, and I am on the stripes in the bottom right corner. I think they turned out pretty cute, and now I want a set for myself! My mom loved them and said they were too cute to set glasses on! I guess she can use them as paperweights!

Today is Oscar’s birthday! Okay, technically we do not know when his birthday is, or really how old he is, but one year ago today he came to live with us. When we adopted him, he was a lost dog that no one ever came to claim, so we have no information on his previous life. At the Dumb Friends League, they guessed he was about 2 years old. So now his birthday is May 14, and he is 3 years old today!

We bought Oscar a cigar for his birthday! Okay, in case you are worried, it isn’t real, but it was so cute we couldn’t pass it up. We have always teased Oscar about looking like an old man with a cigar anytime toys are hanging out of his mouth, so we couldn’t pass this up when we found it. It is too funny, and both pugs love it! It is crinkly, like some baby toys.

The pugs have a birthday hat, but you can see how much Oscar enjoys wearing it. It was hard to get a picture of him in it!

I am so thankful that Oscar is a part of our lives. I can’t imagine how his original family must feel without him, but I am so glad we had the opportunity to adopt him. He is the most cuddly, lovable pug you will ever meet. Here is to many, many more years with my little love pug. Happy Birthday, Oscar!

Happy Mother’s Day!
Thank you to all of the mothers out there for being so wonderful! May you know how special and loved you truly are. God truly knew what we needed when he created mothers!

A special “Happy Mothers’ Day” wish to my mom. The older I get, the more I come to love, appreciate and respect my mother. I realize more every day how faithful and wish she is. It is largely because of her that our family is what it is. I love you, Mom!
