Some of you folks may remember Ryan and Heather (Vernon) Jackson from SEBC. They are a delight and I love them both like crazy. Exciting and supernatural things have happened in their lives the last week.

I get a bit misty-eyed every time I think about what our amazing God is doing right now.

So, they have a blog. And, I'd love for you to check it out and keep them (and everyone involved) in your prayers.

They are in the process of adopting a little girl, and it's just unbelievable how it all happened.

One more time...here's the linky....

right now.


this evening after we ate dinner. the 4 shirleys noticed how flooded the current doggie pen was after the big gully washer today.

so, deaner has been workin' on a bigger doggie pen.

tonight. we decided it was imperative to finish that pen.

all 4 of us worked together in the mud and sprinkling rain to get the pen finished.

it's a big pen.

we put the puppies and dawgs in the new pen.

dean got beeped at 1035pm. he's on call for work this week.

he opened the door to leave quickly.

the dawgs were at the door waggin their tales.

he hustled 'em back in the pen, and blocked where they got out.

then, he left.

Now, it's an hour later, and i'm scared they're gonna get out again.


dogs have excellent night vision.

I was really hoping my first official post back in bloggy world would be about baby #3. How excited and blessed we are, but nope. I'm sittin' here bloggin about dawgs.

I think I'm gonna bring 'em all in.

That's gonna be a pain in the......neck.

Maybe I should wake up the kids to help me.

What? They are great with these dawgs. Bettter than I am!! Tomorrow is Saturday. They can sleep in. It'll be an adventure!



I'm gonna go check on 'em again.

It's dark.

I don't want to go check on them.

Ya know what's funny? Sunday we give 2 away. Earlier this week Graced took the white one home. So, after this weekend we'll only have 3 dawgs. Well, 2 dawgs and a pup.

Anyone want a really really really cute puppy?


I'm going outside.

Well, pregnancy is dandy so far.

I'm excited. tired. emotional. oh, and I'm easily annoyed. it's great.
