The First Lady's Secret Service Agent

This is a picture of our awesome family dog "Buddy".   He is about 6 yrs old and is mostly poodle, but we think he might have some Terrier or some other breed in him.   All we know is that he is a great dog.  He is one of the children.  I guess this makes it 9 children. LOL ;)

The past few weeks he has been acting so strange.  He follows me everywhere I go.  When I leave the house to run errands he wants to ride with us.  He has been very protective.  I remember he did this with my previous pregnancies when I was close to delivery.  I remember my midwife saying that animals can "sense" those hormones pregnant women radiate when nearing birth.  

Here are some of the things he does:
  • Follows me everywhere
  • Paces the hallway at night
  • Barks when he hears noises (he normally is quiet).
  • Sits there and stares at me
  • Goes under my bed and starts doing some pretend digging and then comes out looks at me and goes under the bassinet.  Then he repeats the whole process over again--back under the bed, etc...
  • When I'm in the laundry room, he follows me in there and sniffs around and makes sure everything is ok. 
  • He wants out throughout the day just to walk down the sidewalk and bark at "who knows", and then comes right back in.  I guess he is checking out the territory.   
  • He hasn't had much sleep lately during the day because he is always standing and taking guard.  He is doing that right now as I type this.  He is pacing around the computer and staring right at me.  So funny!! 
It really is hilarious.  Today, I officially gave him the name of "Secret Service Agent" and since I am the first lady of my home, he has become my personal secret service agent.  

I don't know if some of you pregnant moms have experienced this before.  So chime in and share.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
