My boys


School started today and little Ranger here is already whining and missing the boys. He has gotten bigger even since I took this picture a few days ago. ack.. The chewing is driving me crazy, and we are going through treats like crazy. But he is a great little puppy even with the chewing and I am hoping now that the boys are back at school me and Ranger here can work out a stamping schedule for me. lol Speaking of which Wednesday is the start of the new Christmas Spirit Challenge for Flourishes, be sure to check back I will have a creation to share!
This month has been crazy with the new puppy and other things going on in our house. However it has also been one of those times where you sit back and evaluate some goals and things you want to change. DH and I did just that this weekend. I feel so refreshed and really just recharged. I really appreciate when we can sit down and recharge together as a family but even as a couple. New goals and plans are always a postive thing that really help me to stay focused on what is important. I cherish my family time and some even think its overboard. But I don't think you can ever put enough time into your family. With that being said, I think Ranger needs to go for a walk. :0) Thanks for listening to me babble this morning. Have a wonderful day!

OH your boys are so handsome and what a sweet dog. Hope school is going well. You are so right that setting goals as a couple is such an awesome thing and so rejuvenating. Scott and I do this as well.
Hope all is well!

Oh, Stacy! Family time is never over the top. Just look at that beautiful little trio of boys! They're all adorable. The middle boy is a little extra fuzzy. What a sweet family group! I love what you had to say today. Also, I understand how that puppy can cut into your stamping time. At my house Wally comes first!

TFS the wonderful photo of your boys... all three of them! The twins are so handsome, Stacy. Family time is never anything but precious and right and good and always the most important time of all.

What handsome young men they are! Love the adorable pup, Ranger, too! Your boys will treasure all the moments you put into family time.

Marisa said...

Double trouble plus one....???!!! LOL :) What a great picture :)

I'll back you 100 percent about never spending enough time together as a family. They grow up waaaaay too quickly and oh the memories they will have when they are older not to mention being able to pour things into them and their knowing how much they are loved :)

I have six more sleeps until I get some much needed alone time LOL! Always a harsh transition when school begins though as I miss our times together without the daycare kids.
