Foxy Returns!

About 3 years ago, my hubby and I brought home this adorable little Pomeranian puppy we named Foxy. We just fell in love with her. She was great with our kids, super sweet & one of the best dogs we have ever had. The one big problem we had with her is she kept going potty in the house. I know puppy's take awhile to potty train, but for some reason she just wouldn't stop. We gave her so many chances hoping she would change, but unfortunately she didn't. So we ended up giving her away.

That was one of the hardest choices ever, but the only thing that made it a little better is we gave her to one of our friends. The kids talked about Foxy non-stop and we got updates on how she was doing all the time. It was great to hear that they fell in Love with her just as much as we did. She ended up becoming one of their favorite dogs.

Talk about being blessed........I ended up getting an email earlier this week asking if we would be interested in taking Foxy back? They are moving overseas & they didn't have the ability to take her. I know it's one of the hardest & emotional decisions they had to make, but they knew she would have a wonderful & loving home here & she would be back with her original owners. We still loved her even though we didn't have her for a couple years. AND the best part is.........she is potty trained now! :):):)

Foxy is the same color as Tink!

Jeremiah's 1st Haircut

I have always LOVED Jeremiah's cute little curls, but he was long overdue for a haircut. Daddy gave him his 1st haircut today (mommy finally caved in & let daddy do it) and it turned out so cute!

Jeremiah was excited to get his 1st haircut (front view).

His crazy curly hair (side view).

Look at those luscious curls (other side view).

Oh.... am I going to miss his curly rat's nest in the back. :)

Mommy's cutting a lock of curls to keep for his baby book.

Jeremiah gave daddy a cute little smirk once he started cutting his hair with the Flowbee.

My cute little guy. He did a great job listening & trying to hold still.

Daddy's like a pro at this. He has gotten lots of practice from our older boys.

TA DA! Look at my handsome little guy. Now he looks a lot like his older brother Noah with his new haircut.

So cute!

The back still has some curl to it. I LOVE it! Thanks daddy for doing such an excellent job!

I'm a little sad to see Jeremiah's curls go because that ends the baby stage for me. He's getting to be such a big boy just like his brothers!
