A Baby, Bittie Bugs, and a Beagle

Yikes what a title but all such happy/fun things I can't wait to share them with you.

A Baby
It has been about 12 years since we have had a new baby in the family. My son is twenty and my niece and nephews are all in their teenage years.  Before you all start wondering what is she thinking???--she is 45--Not to worry I am not the one having the baby.  My sister-in-law, Kim is the new mommy. The baby is due on August 24 and we are all going to be surprised to learn if it is a boy or girl.  It will be Stephen and Kim's first baby and they love the idea of surprise.  Let me just say I CAN NOT WAIT!  I think it is safe to say that the whole family can't wait.  This is going to be one very loved baby.  We had Kim's baby shower last weekend and I wanted to share just a few pictures of the fun day.  First the new mommy---doesn't she look beautiful...

I am so thankful that God has blessed our family with this precious gift.  I am so looking forward to showering this little one with tons of love.

Bittie Bugs
A few more dolls for the consignment shop and upcoming craft shows.....I love making these bittie bugs---their little antennas make me smile.

A Beagle
OK now you can say "What is she thinking?" 

But look at that face how could anyone resist it.  Alex and I sure couldn't.  After having Sassy, Alex decided  he loved her and the Beagle breed so much that we should get another.  And for those of you who really know me,  I don't have to tell you how much of a dog lover I am. I thought about it for oh a second and agreed.   So two weeks ago we decided to meet some rescued Beagles that were looking for forever homes.  We went with the intent to visit a little 4 month girl puppy named Clair.  I must say she was adorable!!! Toward the end of our visit we met Gene.  Alex and I looked at each other and we both knew we just had to add him to our family.  Gene came from a very high kill shelter in Ohio and was rescued by a wonderful foster home where he lived until we fell in love with him. Gene (we call him Geno) came to live with us on Saturday and I could not love him more.  He is about 3-4 years old and the biggest teddy bear/couch potato one could ever meet.  He is so gentle and after only being a part of our family for a few days has found his perfect place among us.

Gene aka:  Geno, Gene Gene the dancing machine, or Bubba was welcomed to our family with a special treat from Brewster's (a local ice-cream shop)   I actually think I saw him smile after he finished his tiny doggie sized scoop of vanilla ice-cream topped with a milk bone.
Welcome to your forever home Geno
