A Very "Lucky" Cat!

Well, two words to describe my mood today are happy and accomplished. I got to once again assist in finding a forever home for a shelter animal, which is ALWAYS a rewarding passion of mine. My Grandma Snellink asked me a couple of weeks ago to help her find a dog to keep her company, and when we (Mom, Grandma and I) went to look for a dog today at the Humane Society, we stumbled upon Lucky...the CAT! Grandma fell in love with her, and Lucky fell in love with Grandma! I am so glad I could help out with this new found friendship! Lucky is blind in one eye (as you can see from the pics), but otherwise a happy, healthy cat. She is very loving and affectionate. Overall, the words to describe seeing Lucky make Grandma so happy: Perfect Match. Lucky gets to come home to her new "forever home" on Tuesday after the vet makes sure she is actually spayed and she recieves her Rabies vacine. Lucky will definitely fill in some of the lonliness Grandma has encountered since Grandpa died in February. I think she'll also brighten Grandma's mood, therefore brightening each and every day. :) I'm just so happy for both Grandma and Lucky!!

Roxy Bibler

Well, Austin and I are an Aunt and Uncle a beautiful little Pit Bull puppy!! Blake adopted "Roxy" from my sister Kellie, who was fostering her temporarily. Blake and Roxy came over tonight to introduce her to her new cousins Hoonis and Chester!! Chester had very little interest, and Hoonis had WAY too much! Once we knew Hoonis was just playing and not going to eat her, they played for about an hour....and both are wiped out at the moment! Anyway, welcome to the family, Roxy! You're super cute and we love you already! :)

We Remember

It's so hard to believe that 9-11 happened six years ago already. I was listening to radio bits this morning from recordings of the 911 calls from the people trapped inside the two towers after the first plane hit, then bits of live coverage when they saw the second plane hit. I'm sure just like the rest of you, tears started flowing and goosebumps started rising. Our hearts go out to every husband, wife, mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, grandparent and anyone else who lost their lives or lost someone they loved that day. We will never forget...

Lake Fun w/ the Hosford Fam

While they were up for the big surprise party (see allllllll those details below!), Austin and I took Dan, Tracy, Gracie and Lauren for their first Townline Lake boat experience, and Maddie and Kellie came along too (both had already been on the lake!). Mom and Grandma stayed behind. The girls went swimming, splashed around and ate snails (well, Gracie did...Haha!). We had so much fun with you all and can't wait to do it again soon!! :)


Yesterday we had a surprise party for Mom Bibler on her 50th birthday!!! We had her friends and family come from all over (many from out of town or out of state!). Brogan, Jordan and I drove her up to the lake blindfolded where everyone was waiting, and when we took off the blindfold and....SURPRISE!! She claims to have known nothing, so she says she was truly caught off guard. Happy birthday to you, Mama Bibs!! Here's to 50 more...:)

Gracie's First Trip to the Zoo!!!

Austin and I were so thrilled that we got to tag along for Gracie's first ever zoo visit, just like we did for Maddie!!! :) Gracie loved all the animals and was wide awake up until the bitter end. The animals sure wore her out!! We were there for a good 3+ hours!! Dan and Tracy, "Papa" Carlson (Tracy's dad) and Austin and I all went and had a blast on a beautiful, memorable day! Thanks for letting Aunt KK and Uncle Aukin tag along, Dan, Tracy and Gracie! :)
