Happy Belated Pi Day

In honor of Pi Day, Cali and I made some mini blueberry pies.

We like to celebrate Pi Day because we're homeschooling nerds.
And because we get to eat pie.

We made mini ones because we're the only humans in our house that will eat pie.
And if we made big pies, we'd eat them all in the middle of the night when no one was watching and because in the middle of the night, calories don't count.
We will be the first to admit that we are gluttonous girls.
Especially when it comes to pie.
Happy Pi Day!

Some Things to Make You Smile . . .

Because I love you guys.
And because that last post was sad.
Here are some things to make you smile.
You make me smile!
That yellow lab looks exactly like our Molson.
Thankfully he's out of the poo eating stage.

Sorry to those of you who are lactose intolerant,
but I couldn't help but think of you when I saw this.
You know who you are!


Proper punctuation is important.
Just ask Grandpa.

Jaws is still out there.
I'm sure of it.
If you're a mom, you know it's the truth.

Have you met my pet unicorn?

The dogs have spoken.

A nice way to end this post.

Love you guys!

We Love You Aries!

Aries went to heaven today.
Andrea was with her as she passed.
Sweet Baby James and Aries

Ava and Aries

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
