Our new Fireplace

Our big project this winter was installing a fireplace in our basement. Luckily I have a very handy Father who we hired for this project. I think he did a fantastic job! It turned out so beautiful and we couldn't be happier with it.

Tuck's New Booster Seat

My husband at first thought I was crazy when I told him that I wanted to get our new puppy, Tucker, a booster seat for the car. It is a safer way for him to ride with us without being in his crate. I think he loves it. I got his booster seat from It was only $39.99 with Free Shipping. I thought it was a great deal.

On the way to pick up Hayden from Preschool. Tucker was just checking everything out.

He got tired and decided to just lay down. I looked over and he was just looking at me with those beautiful brown eyes.

I think he likes it

Blah Tuesday

Today has been a very yucky rainy day. Luckily we missed all of the bad weather that is wrecking havoc across the midwest and north. My heart goes out to my friends who live in those states. I hope they stay safe.

This morning I tried Zumba for the first time since moving back to Kentucky from California. It was AWESOME!! I totally understand why they phrase it "join the party." It was so much fun. I have never sweat so much during a workout, yet felt so energized. I cannot wait until next Tuesday!

My son, Hayden, will start Kindergarten this fall. Our school district is not the best and my husband and I are really beginning to think about schools. He is in the lottery for Maxwell's Spanish Immersion Program. I am praying really hard that he gets accepted. If he doesn't, we will probably enroll him into Lexington Christian Academy. I am trying to find a part time job to help with the additional cost of him going to private school. I would love to be able to find a paralegal part time job, but the market is so tight. Just keep us in your thoughts. Thank you.

Meet Tucker, the newest member to our family. I knew I would end up raising three boys. :-)

Tucker is a Cockapoo/Maltipoo mix. He is 3 months old. When I went to Ft. Mitchell to get him, he just melted my heart the moment I saw him. The boys are so excited about their new puppy.

Conor's new time out spot. LOL

He loves the snow!
