Sickness, Halloween and a puppy?

We have been battling this yucky flu or whatever it is for almost 3 weeks now. I know that we're almost in the clear but I'm right at that point where I'm tired of being sick, I'm tired of having sick kids and I'm getting a bit cranky!
On the up side, we finally got the house decorated for Halloween. Thats a big chore when you don't feel good. Lucky for me I have kids that are excited about decorating even if they are sick and I just let them have at it. They did a great job! We're going to do pumpkins either tonight or tomorrow depending on what time Myles gets home from work tonight. When we're done I'll get pictures and post them on here.
On Saturday when I ran to Walmart for some cough syrup there were puppies and of course I had to bring one home. I know, probably not the smartest thing for me to do being as I really don't like dogs that much. I guess the moral of the story is, stay away from walmart on saturdays! Or just all of the time because we don't have any money anyways right! :) Any how, Cassie is a blueheeler rottwieler mix. She is adorable and loving. The kids adore her, even the ones who claim to hate animals!Clayton even manages to not be his monster self with her and is very sweet to her. She is very spoiled by all except for Jackie and the cats, they are not her biggest fans! Every time I pet Cassie, Jackie has to jump in begging for her turn which she did not get this morning being as she rolled in cow manure!!!!!!

Myles was a cowboy and I was his cowgirl! Minnie was Velma, Natasha a ballerina, Kylee was Violet Incredible, Chelsea an Arabian princess,Madison a crazy lady, Lindy a rock star, Britten as Optimus Prime, Clayton was of course Scooby Doo and Allen was a baby!


  1. Yeah....we ended up with a kitten..not from Walmart..but still!!

  2. Well, we had 6 cats and we didn't go get any of them! A friend (we're wondering about the friend part!) dropped off 4 of their kittens when we first moved into our house, then about a month after we were here a black female shows up and acts like she owns the place. A month after that a gray male shows up and he acts like he owns the place too! We are however down to only 3, one of the kittens died and we found homes for 2 others. Thank goodness, still, 3 cats! Are you kidding me? I have a feeling that if we got rid of the two adults that they'd just show back up one day!
