Adorable Furbabies – January 2018

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone is staying warm as winter is in full swing here, even in South Texas!

My furbabies are doing everything to stay warm as well, especially snuggling with us and staying inside. Even Jazzy likes to wear hubby’s beanie!

We are doubling up on doggie blankets for their beds and have moved them closer together, which Penny loves


They all get along and don’t mind sleeping closely together at night either


Speaking of sleeping, they sure do get themselves into weird positions!

Mr Jackson isn’t liking the cold because he is stuck inside!

But he sure does love my blanket!

Last but not least, Miss Shelby posing sweetly


Until next time, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, December Week 4

Good morning everyone! Can’t believe 2018 is just around the corner. Boy did the year go fast! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My furbabies sure did. Check out the adorableness!

On Friday, we came home after running some errands and found all the girls posing. Makes you say AWE! ❤ ❤


Saturday was spent wrapping, wrapping AND wrapping! And I had a very nosy doggie named Shelby!

Jazzy spent her evening sleeping on my husband in the chair. It was sooo sweet!

After all the wrapping, decorating and prepping for Christmas Eve, Miss Penny was throwing in the towel by 4pm!


On Christmas Eve, we let the babies have one of their gifts. A giant tennis ball! They had a BLAST!

On Christmas Day, they got to open the rest of the goodies! Treats and toys galore!

They sure loved their toys!

Miss Penny wanted to open her presents in our bedroom and chew in piece.

Mr. Jackson got spoiled too!

Lots of playtime was to be had the next few days.

On Tuesday, they were all in chill-mode!


Miss Shelby loves to climb in her daddy’s lap. She thinks his fingers are tasty!

Last but not least, Mr. Jackson loves it when I have a blanket over me. He loves to snuggle too!


Until next time, bark and meow on! Happy New Year everyone!

Adorable Furbabies, December Week 3

Good afternoon everyone! Just a little over 2 days and it’ll be Christmas Day. Are you ready? Nope. Still got lots to do, including put ornaments on the tree and finish wrapping presents. Hoping to knock out quite a bit of that tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some of the sweet moments of my furbabies this past week.

Jazzy LOVES her Daddy! Can’t you tell?!?

She also loves her kitty!


Last Friday morning, I managed to get both of the babies to look at me. Makes you say “Awe!”


Miss Penny wasn’t in the mood to look at the camera that day. LOL


Mr. Jackson says Hello!


He also loves to hang out with the babies!

On Monday, we received our first Christmas package and it was the FIRST time for the babies! I tried to take pics as we went along. This package came from New York!

All those new toys left the girls worn out!


While Jackson was being goofly, laying in the gutter!


But then he came back inside and chilled out on a dog bed, looking quite handsome!

Shelby LOVES the alligator!

Our second Christmas package came on Tuesday, from Missouri!

These 2 cutie pies taking time to pose!

And….its nap time!


Last but not least, Miss Shelby chewing on the bone WHILE holding onto TWO other toys! Silly girl! 😉

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Happy Howlidays!

Adorable Furbabies, December Week Two

Good afternoon everyone and TGIF! Here are some highlights from this past week.

Miss Penny staying warm under a blanket last Thursday.


Mr Jackson was snuggling with me last Thursday night and didn’t mind taking some selfies.

Last Friday morning, we woke up to SNOW! Yes, you read that correctly. SNOW in SOUTH TEXAS. THe pups really had a blast with it!

It was cute to watch Shelby looking at the snow from inside.

It was still quite chilly Saturday morning and the furbabies didn’t really want to get up.

On Sunday, I moved dog beds out of my office so I could vacuum. Jazzy didn’t care!


All the babies love their new dog beds!

The sun finally came out on Monday and Miss Penny was HAPPY


The babies stayed occupied with Nylabones!

Even Mr. Jackson loves the new dog beds


Another picture of Happy Penny in the Sunshine


The babies being sweet one morning

Mr. Jackson just hanging out!

And last but not least, some pictures of Jackson’s New Little Friend! The kitty is really skittish and moves up the tree when I get any closer. Adorable though!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Early Morning Quiet Time

Good morning everyone! Today I’m sharing with you an amazing sketch by Sara for Sketches in Thyme.

And here is my take on it:

I stayed true to the sketch, and sprinkled a few sequins here and there with drops of black mist. The washi tapes are from Queen & Co and The paper Studio, with the flowers from Prima and gold gems are CTMH. The paw print stickers are from Sticko, the mini alphas are Authentique. The chipboard alphas are from colorbok, which I jazzed up by adding a gold gelato from Faber-Castell then topping it with gold glitter paste from Bo Bunny. The camera clip is also from The Paper Studio.

The photo is of my sweet little babies – Jasmine and Shelby – enjoying some early morning quiet time with toys and bones on a big dog bed. They used to get up around 4:30 to 5am every morning, and after going outside to potty, they’d come back in and chew on toys. It was soooo cute!

This layout is extra special as it will be my last one being posted as a Design Team member at Sketches in Thyme. I have really enjoyed being on the DT and will miss my teammates!

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, December 2017, Week One

Good afternoon everyone! My furbabies have been having tons of fun the past several days.

Here’s the babies “refueling” after a full day of FUN!


Miss Shelby likes to hang out under my desk in my office.


Last week, they decided to tear into a very old (11 yrs old at least) crate bed.


I was getting ready for bed one night when Shelby popped her head up to say HI!


On a warm sunny day last week, Jasmine brought a toy outside and pulled the stuffing out, while Jackson watched.

Shelby being Shelby! LOL


We were w/out Internet for about 28 hrs and the babies had to stay in their room on Friday afternoon while the tech was here. They stayed busy with toys and bones.

Hubby was out of town for work for a few days, but came home on Friday night. Just look at the LOVE!

Mr. Jackson keeping me warm and cozy


And then he’s silly under his wedge.


Last Saturday, he had a vet appt for his shots. He did great, despite not being happy about going into his carrier


Later that evening, Shelby was curious as to what hubby was doing. Just look at that little face!


Sunday as I was putting away some clothes, the girls looked SO cute! Stair steps!


I did some scrapping on Sunday too. The girls stayed busy with toys and bones.

On Monday, Shelby was looking at me like “hey…why don’t you take a break from work already mom!”


Jackson is looking quite handsome! ❤


Later on that same day, Miss Shelby decided to pull stuffing out of her and Jazzy’s baby bed!

While Shelby was being silly, Penny got to lick the ice cream container clean! Yummy!

Smile big, Shelby!

Jazzy missed her daddy

Penny says no pictures!


I barely made the bed when Miss Shelby decided to claim it as her own!


Mr. Jackson watching us dry the babies off after coming from outside


Miss Penny isn’t happy that the rain hasn’t stopped and its cold outside. She’s my warm, summer sunshine girl!


I ordered new beds yesterday, taking advantage of PetCo’s Day 6 Deal (beds up to 60%). They came in today and just look at the babies checking them out and ultimately, napping on them!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, November 2017

Hello everyone. As you saw from my previous post, I’ve been MIA this month and things have finally calmed down as we grieve over our loss of our sweet boy. I managed to get a few pics of him before he fell ill, which those will be cherished always.

To start with, though, are pics of Shelby chewing on a toy, and ultimately pulling some fuzz out.

Jeffrey was put on new arthritic medicaiton and it was doing wonders for him!

Jackson sure does look like a KING up on that fence!

Right before Halloween, we ended up with all four doggies on their beds in the living room. It was super sweet

Found Jazzy chomping away on the grass, while laying in it!

Jackson LOVES hanging out with the babies!

For Halloween they all got treats and toys! Unfortunetly, Mr. Jeffrey didn’t want anything that day….

Later that day, they went to bed, on the same big doggie bed.

Shelby loves her kitty!

Speaking of Jackson, he loves to snuggle with me when I have a blanket.

Penny turned 5 years old November 8th. We didn’t get to celebrate until later (scroll down for party pics), but hubby let her lick the Chunky Monkey B&J’s container! What a treat!

Shelby wants to know what I’m doing!

With us saying goodbye to Mr. Jeffrey, Miss Penny Lane was extremely mopey for a few days and just looked super sad most of the day. It really broke our hearts

Jazzy is really enjoying sitting in daddy’s chair while he is at work. Just look at that face! ❤

Jazzy got the couch before Shelby did!

Shelby loves to give Jackson kisses, even when he’s in my lap!

Selfie time with Jazzy!

Found both pups napping on our bed one day!

Even Jackson likes to take selfies


The night before Thanksgiving, we decided to bring the babies into our room. Took a while to get them settled, but it was funny seeing Penny and Jackson watch them get ready for bed. LOL

Jazzy has her daddy pinned!

Since I was ill and recuperating for 3 weeks (with Thanksgiving in the middle of that time period), my parents, brother and sis in law brought Thanksgiving to us. We had some visitors!

The next day, Black Friday, we celebrated Miss Penny’s birthday. She enjoyed her dessert and snacks. Toys…eh..she let the babies have them! 😉

The babies are still using their elevated dishes like big girls!

By the 3rd night, the babies settled into bed like PROs!

With being the big girl in charge, Penny is exhausted!

Whenever my husband is sitting down in his chair, Jazzy will take that opportunity and jump in his lap for love!

Jazzy is a busy girl who loves ROPE toys!

Mr. Jackson is enjoying the new fence that was put in a couple of weeks ago:

Here’s Jazzy trying to get my attention!

Miss Penny soaking up the sun

And last but not least, Mr. Jackson bird-watching

Until next time, bark and meow on!

In memory of Jeffrey James

Hello everyone. I’ve been MIA this month as we had to say goodbye to our little man, Jeffrey James (aka Mr. Jeffrey). He was not himself at the beginning of the month and things escalated quickly, forcing us to make a very hard decision. He was almost 14 years old, so I know we gave him a very loving home for 11 years of that.

I’m still not ready to talk about the details, but because its been 2 weeks, I wanted to showcase some of my all time fave pics of my sweet boy. I hope you enjoy the gallery I’ve put together as I enjoyed going down memory lane, despite it being very difficult at times.

He will always be remembered as Daddy’s Buddy and Mommy’s Sweet Boy. He loved car rides and all things doggie.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Jeffrey. Hope you’ve found Ruby Mae, Lady Bear, Little Bit, Lady Lou and Kandie there on Rainbow Bridge. Christmas won’t be the same without you. We all miss you very much.


Good morning everyone! Today I’m sharing with you the latest sketch for Sketches in Thyme. Its a fun one!

And here is my take on it

I pretty much stayed true to the sketch, but kept my photos larger and moved one of them where the title is. I used an old pet stack from DCWV and fussy cut the hearts, flowers and hydrant. The doily is from Recollections. Pictures are of me and Ruby Mae taking some selfies together, June 2015.

Make sure you stop by the Sketches in Thyme blog and check out the sketches we have going on this month as well as the daily posts from DT.

As always, thanks for looking!


Adorable Furbabies – Oct 20th thru the 26th

Good morning everyone!! Who’s curious to see what my furbaby gang has been up to this week?!!?

Jackson found a branch with leaves and Shelby wanted to play too!

Penny is starting to come out of her shell and wants to be around the girls more, INCLUDING chewing on toys together!

While Penny chewed on toys, the babies looked on

Jeffrey has been put on some new arthritic medication and check this out! He’s on the couch! He hasn’t done that in MONTHS!

Miss Shelby says HI!

Speaking of Shelby, this past weekend she wanted to help momma unload the dishwasher!

Jeffrey was having such a GREAT weekend, he stopped for some selfies on Sunday!


While Jeffrey smiled for the camera, the babies were playing with toys. LOTS Of TOYS!

The girls stopped a little to take pics too, just not selfies!

After all that playtime and baby sitting, Penny threw in the towel and barely made it to the dog bed!

Until next time, bark and meow on!
