Mr. Waffles; Our New Family Member

So we got a dog. It just happened. Kind of by default. He had three previous homes and they just didn't work out. We were going to take care of him for a few weeks before we brought him to California to a new home but now he's staying here in Utah with us. He's an adorable and sweet little dachshund and we have named him Mr. Waffles. He's kind of warry of strangers and is afraid of basketballs but for the most part he's quiet and good. We're still working on housebreaking him. He'll get it soon.

This is my very first dog experience. Ever. It's a bit different than a cat. That's for sure!

Eva Marie LOVES to hold his leash. Loves, loves, love it.

This is one of my favorite things about a dog.

A Year Gone By

Eva Marie and Miles turned one! How did time fly by so fast? Here are a ton of photos from the birthday fiesta.We finally gave up on whacking the pinata and just let the kids tear it apart. They loved it!

Uly and his loot!

Eva Marie is eating the gum drop out the center of this sombrero cookie. The cookies were a hit. I love that in my family the licorice flavored gum drop cookies were the most popular!
The recipe is one that I really liked. It's my new favorite sugar cookie recipe. I have made it a few times since the birthday party.

Cake is good on a plate so why wouldn't the plate be tasty too?

Birthday cake!!!!! Eva Marie learned a new cake eating tactic from Miles.
Perhaps she feels threatened? Your cake is safe, baby. It is all for you!

Eva Marie's first experience with a lollypop. She loved it.

Such a handsome little guy! It's so fun that these little ones share a birthday.

Fruit Salad... Yummy! Yummy!
