Here is Tyler "The little Hawaiian Boy". Aloha!


Here is my princess Taelynne!


As you can see Clareese is adapting very well, she has really taken to Shawn as you can see by the photos. I think Clareese thinks of herself as a lap dog, when she really isn't but she is a good puppy dog.

So in sending this website to my family and friends most replyed with "add more pictures" so when I was looking through different photos of the kids and here are a few more....

In my first entry I had said Taelynne loves to play with Tiger, our neighbors kitty. Here is a picture of Taelynne and Tiger! (Oh by the way, we don't see Tiger much anymore cause Clareese isn't a fan of kitties!) :)


We have adopted a dog, that made it through Hurricane Katrina. Her name is Clareese and she is a purebread white boxer. She is 2 years old and has really bonded with our family.

The family that we got her from has 5 children and two other dogs and lost there home in the hurricane. So they need to find a home for Clareese as she needed alot of love and attention.

As some of you know we had to put our other dog down as he was a little to agressive, so with that said the kids were longing for a dog. This opportunity fell into our laps and we decided to check her out. Clareese at first looks a little intimidating but she is so gentle and sweet and has really bonded with Tyler and Shawn. She is part of our family!

So the school year has started off with a bang, Tyler entered the 3rd grade at Sandhill Elementary and got a male teacher. His name is Mr. Rennick and Tyler thinks he is soooo cool!

The year has been off to a good start so far! Tyler has found out that 3rd grade means bring home homework everynight which also entails at least 30 minutes of reading! I love it, he isn't so sure! But we are working all the bugs out....

So with going into the 3rd grade he has also began a before school program called boys and girls club which he goes only in the morning for about 2 hours. At first he was real hesitant but loves it now, and has tons of friends in the program and in his new class!

So the year has started out right and we hope it will continue to be great!

So we ventured off to the Kitsap County Rodeo for the first time for both the kids. It was alot of fun! We went with some friends so there was lots of kiddos along for the exciting afternoon. We got to ride some rides and see some animals too!

Tyler just wanted to see the bull riders get bucked off, typical boy!
Taelynne, well just say we saw the "big cows"

Great FAMILY time!

Hello to all our friends and family. I am starting to do our very own blog. This way we can keep our family and friends up to date with what is going on in our busy fast paced lives.We have had an awesome summer, lots of BBQ's, road trips, family functions and just hanging out with friends.

There were no major broken bones this summer~as last year Tyler decided to be Mr. Hot Rod and break his collar-bone. Everyone is doing great and we are all healthy and happy.

Tyler is getting ready to go into the 3rd grade at Sandhill Elementary. Absolutely wonderful school, we are hoping for a male teacher this year so keep all your fingers crossed! :) We are hoping to get Tyler into soccor, and baseball and maybe even some karate. So we will be busy.

Taelynne keeps us running every second of the day as she is just so busy. We are working on potty training which has been very interesting! Taelynne is totally into playing with friends at her daycare, playing with Tiger (the kitty next door) and if she gets the chance she loves to watch Dora! Oh to be a child again....

Shawn is busy with his job, hanging drywall. He got hired on with another drywalling company. They keep him busy with work, but he still has time to play!

I continue to work at the hospital and commute from Belfair to Renton..what was I thinking? I continue to look for work out on the peninusla but nothing yet. I work with some great people and that is what makes it hard to leave.
