Mia turns 9

 Look at this sweet angel close her eyes and make her birthday wish.
All she wanted was to share milkshakes with the family!
Wish big, Love! The sky is the limit!
Happy birthday, sweet one! We are so proud of you.
You are responsible, eager to help, caring, beautiful and wise!
We love you so!

Jude turns 1


 Happy Birthday, sweet baby boy!
What a treasure you are to our family. This past year has been filled with precious moments as we have watched you grow and discover. How quickly it went by!
Jude is hovering over 30 lbs. He is walking and babbling more. He is still nursing 5 times during the day and once at night. He eats 3 meals a day. We have started giving him raw cow's milk some too. He has four teeth and has more coming in. He is contemplating giving up one of his daily naps, but mom is still fighting to keep it. He dances to Toby Mac's "Feel It" anytime he hears it.

Bella Blue

We waited until we knew she was a permanent addition....and now we would like to introduce the newest member of the West household, Bella Blue West. She is a black and white bird dog that followed us home from a neighbor of our in-laws. After being assured she was not owned, we have adopted her into our family. We are in the process of house training her. She is very loving and energetic. We now have a family dog. We love her!


 She is even trying to make friends!

DIY: Jewelry Hanger

Found this old wood and linen frame left in our shed by previous owners.
We have no idea just how old it is. 
Creativity time!!
Cleaned it, added a little paint and chicken wire!
Old frame $0, leftover trim paint $0!
