TUSAL and Lots of Pics to Share

This week has just been one of those weeks. Both of my kids missed two days of school due to being sick. They are back up and going now though. Since I am taking care of my great nephew now, it has made things seem even more crazy. Even though it has only been about 7 years, I forgot what work a little one is! With both of my kids home sick and a six month old hanging around . . . I am tired! LOL

I got permission to post some pics of Adam (my great nephew) on my blog, so here he is. He has stolen my heart! He is a really good baby and has such a cute smile.I have not had much stitching time at all this past week!! Since I don't have any stitching photos I will post some other photos. I don't share a lot about my family on here but I do SO LOVE to hear about everyone else's family. I love to hear about and see pics of all my stitching friends and their families and feel like I get to know them better, so I have decided that I am going to start sharing more with you. So, here is a couple pics of my kiddos! Now my daughter Candice don't like her picture taken much, at least not by me! LOL so, in this first pic, you can see she is getting a little frustrated with me trying to get a good pic! LOL Too funny! Caught her in a good laugh here!
My son John playing in the dirt!
and climbing trees, he loved to climb trees!!!
Another thing that had me a bit worried this past week is Romo (our Chocolate lab). One morning we woke to him looking like this: Now Romo does not normaly look like this, of course. He normally looks like this:We still have no idea what happened. At first we thought maybe a snake bite, but there is no signs of a bite of any kind. So we gave him Benadryl several times and it started going down. He is almost normal now. We still are not sure what happened to him, but just very happy he is doing well now!

Remeber several months ago my kitty Jazzy had 2 kittens and we kept them because we could not find them a new home and we just grew too attached to them. So we have Jazzy, Ratty, and Twister. Well before she was even done breast feeding them she went into heat and guess what. We have 5 more kittens living under our bed now as of the night before last! Grrrr!!! Thankfully, I think that I have already found them all five homes, finger's crossed!!! And remember Belle, our little dog . . . yep you guessed it . . . before we could afford to get her fixed she went off and got knocked up again. On 9/11 she delivered 7 puppies which are living in my sons closet! They are normally easy to find new homes for though, so hopefully they will all be gone with a day or two of being weened just as the kittens. I will try and post pics of them all this following week.

Oh my goodness, I almost forgot . . . it is TUSAL update time!! My vase that I was using got broke by Ratty! So, I found something else to put my strings in!Well that is about it for this time around. I am working on getting my blog roll list up to date! It is way out of date, so if you are not listed there . . . hopefully by the end of this week you will be!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful and Blessed weekend!!

Great photos cindy! Poor Romo. its always scary when something happens to the pets beacause unlike kids they cant tell us where it hurts.

Thanks for sharing

Mylene said...

Great pictures of the children. Thanks for sharing them all. Hope you kids get better very soon and Romo too.

Julie said...

Aw, poor Romo. I hope he is feeling better soon. Wonder if he got stung by a bee or something? That could also cause allergic reactions.

Karen said...

Great "progress" on your TUSAL! Love your pics...poor doggy.

Kay said...

What a busy week you have had. I can relate though. Thankfully the cooties have not shown up on our doorstep yet! Lol. Once school is in though it is only a matter of time before your child gets sick and then the whole house gets it as well! Hope Romo is better soon. We had the same thing happen to our cat years ago. It turned out she had gotten bit by a spider and she had a bad reaction so we took her to the vet and he gave her some antibiotics and after a few days she was good as new. Thanks for sharing the pics of your family it sounds like they keep you busy!

Dee said...

Sounds like you will be busy for weeks to come with all those new little pets.

You'll have to post pics. I bet they are adorable!

Siobhan said...

Great pics! Hope your pup is better soon. My Duffy had something like that happen. The vet gave him a shot and he was fine. Scared me, but he was fine!! LOL

Alberta said...

I love the un-posed aspect of your photos....lovely family!

Julie said...

Sounds like oyu have been kept very busy, hope life settles down and is a bit quieter for you next week.
Lovely pics of your family.

Ranae said...

Busy week for you and great photo's of all the kids. I can see how your nephew stole your heart. It's great to have a little one like that around part-time eh?
I hope Romo is o.k.
Congrats to all the kits and pups, lol. I bet they are all adorable.

Chars said...

Loved all the photos...its always lovely to see and hear about your friends families :)

I forgot about my TUSAL container again :( I might drop out of it since I have to leave it behind :(

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Sandy said...

Thanks for sharing all the photos. I updated my blog too. It's been awhile I know. I hope you're well.

Great pictures - poor doggie - glad he's better! Looks your pets have turned into a menagerie. Watch out, they'll snare you just like your other kitties did!!w

Maureen said...

thanks for sharing the family pics - it's always nice to see faces to names. Unlike your daughter though mine just loves getting her picture took and will happily pose away for hours lol! Hope doggy is better now though - that did not look too pleasant..

Dani - tkdchick said...

Cindy, you have a beautiful family there!

Meari said...

What a great post. Loved seeing your "family". Poor doggie! I would've been concerned, too. Have you considered getting the pets spayed? I know it can get expensive, but I've heard some shelters do it for a reduced fee if the owner qualifies. It would save time and expense of the additional furbabies (aren't they so cute when they're babies?!!). I'd love to see pics of the little ones :)

Cheryl said...

Ooooh how cute is Adam! And i had to laugh, they are hard work!!
Great pics of your kids, i love hearing about peoples families too :)

Chiloe said...

Funny pictures of your daughter: when they grow up they don't really like to have their picture taken, right?

Kathy said...

You have a busy household. No wonder it is hard to get any stitching done. Your furbabies have had a population explosion. Good that you have found home for most of them.
