It's Who I Am

is this not the CUTEST elephant you have EVER laid your eye's on?! = i got my Niece, Caitlyn, this elephant costume to play with - i beyond ADORE elephants (if you don't know) - so while i was watching her, we played elephant dress up - i can not get enough of that elephant booty!!!!


here i am .. by the end of the day with Cait i am beyond POOPED! (but i'm NOT complaing, i love every bit of it ~ glad i'm an Aunt and not a Mom tho, i don't know how the Mom's do it 24-7)  .. it's always a FULL day of fun, fun, fun, and non-stop playing! - always something to do, discover, and enjoy! ... (i look alert, but this was about an hour before the day was done, tttttiiiirrrrreeeedddddd)


Finally we have Kayleigh in my backseat heading home from the doctors - she usually sits on my lap when she's in the car - but for some reason she was sitting in the backseat - so it's why i took the snap shot .. UPDATE: - she's been going to the Dr's b/c her liver enzymes are CRAZY high, so we are trying to figure out why and how to correct the problem!

(( i don't have a picture of my desk - well b/c i'm embarrassed - it's like a tornado hit it - it's swmaped with paperwork *blah* ..  ))


i'll leave you seeing Joe and Cait giving high-fives! - this was @ her 1st dance recital "Hello Dolly"

  8. If you love elephants and love that niece of yours - there is some great Etsy art you should check out. I've been contemplating getting one made for my sis-in-law as a thank you for being a bridesmaid. http://www.etsy.com/listing/51264255/custom-silhouette-portrait-of-child-with?ref=sr_list_39&ga_search_query=silhouettes+custom+portraits&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

  9. You & your niece are beautiful! So much fun being an Aunt! Hope you get answers for your dog soon. If you have the chance to visit Nantucket I highly recommend it. Not sure where you are located but you can fly there too, they have their own airport. xo

  38. so cute- she looks like such a bundle of energy- lovely blog!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yes, absolutely exhausting, rewarding but exhausting.
    My boys have so much energy that they have completely run me down lately. I was so tired I left my bank card in the ATM... and of course that just adds to what you need to do... Well this was a little vent.
    There is a lot of laughter in the house though:)
    Have a lovely weekend!

  46. Hey Erika,

  47. I have a little maltese who's sister has serious liver issues, so we did all types of tests on him. Everything came back normal except his bile acid levels were really high. But then I did some research and found this Australian National Kennel Council study on Maltese. They found that abnormal bile acids test results are commonly seen in this breed when there is no liver function abnormality. So I don't know what symptoms your little one has but it seems like maltese and livers are a little different than other dogs.
