 I call this 'The Yogurt Tree'.  Or: 'What-Happens-When-You-Don't-Wipe-The-Counter-For-A-Whole-Day'.  Or: 'What-Happens-When-You-Just-Got-A-Puppy-And-You're-Remodeling-Your-Home'.  Mediums used were yogurt, animal cracker, and rose stem.  Sometimes you just have to find beauty in unexpected places.

We've been pretty busy at the P. household of late.  Mostly fun things, like:


 Lots of working on the remodel.  The Bug is loving the Father-Son time out helping his Daddy.

 Camping near Richfield.
We had a lot of fun.  The boys slept through the night, and in my mind that makes for a successful trip.  My allergies were SO bad, I had a hard time enjoying nature, but we got to do a little exploring and had some really good food (another huge camping win).

Yes, that is toilet paper in my nose.  Don't judge.

The rope swing was a huge hit.

Adam wanted in on the action.  He loved the swing!


Introducing: Tacoma George.  Or: Tucker, Tuck, Tucky, Tuck-Tuck

Needless to say, we're having fun.  Tucker is a little ball of energy, but he's a fast learner and very sweet.  I think he is going to be a great addition to our family.  Shout out to my AMAZINGly tolerant, understanding, and loving husband for letting this happen. I love you, Babe!



  1. I'm glad camping went well, and I need to see what food you made. We are going w/out my mom on Mon and I don't know how to cook in the woods.

    We love Tuck at our house too. Colin doesn't just call isaac by his first name. He uses his full name Isaac Packer. He told gma all about Isaac Packer's dog tuck. "I wuv Tuck" he said.

  2. How is the remodel going? I'd love to see more pics.

  3. So CUTE! I love his name too. It sounds like camping was fun except for the nose tissue! Ha!! Sorry you were so miserable. I've been meaning to ask how you liked the campground. 'Can't wait to see everything you're doing to the house.
