Lots of photos

Oh, I am still so behind.   On August 21st our new Guide Dog Puppy arrived.   Willoughby! He is seen here with his sister Waikiki.  They are 9 weeks old at the time of these pictures.

Willoughby is on the left (yellow) and Waikiki is on the right (black). 

OMG!  Such sweet siblings!

Ethan absolutely LOVES our new puppy Willoughby!  

"mommy!  Puppy kiss me!!!"  Look how fat Willoughby is!!  So cute!!

"Where's Ethan??"

Oh, there he is!!!!

Matthew is in love with our new Puppy too!

"Why did you wake me up?!?!  I was sleeping!!!"

Oh little puppies are so goofy!

Four of us in Fort Collins have changed clubs are now part of the Boulder club.  It is fantastic!!!  The people are so nice and we learn so much.  We thought Eddie (our lost puppy that went back at 5 months doing to many different issues") was there!!!  We were all shocked!  He is so big now and still pretty much a disaster but improving. 

Oh willoughby!!!!  Look at those fuzzy wrinkles!!!!  He's so squishy!

Again,   puppies are such goofy sleepers!!

Left - Wilmet, Middle - Willoughby, Right - Waikiki --- Can you believe it, they are all siblings.  How dongs can be siblings and have such different coloring is amazing. 

Headed home from the boulder puppy club meeting. 

Willoughby is already good at the Guide Dog Scoot... How did he manage to fit himself so far under the seat?

Oh how I just Love cute Puppy faces!

Willoughby and Waikiki were having a play date and I gave them a plastic bottle to play with .  I didn't think about the fact that the opening was large.... And.... the goofball puppies got their heads stuck in it.  I mean really?!?  What goof balls!

Just like kids, Puppies are so cute when they sleep

Ethan absolutely ADORES his brother Matthew!  

Fun snuggle times watching a movie. 


It is just so sweet to see them all snuggled up!

"what?  We're being good, we promise!"

An amazing sunset.... The bars were actually there.... It was from the smoke from the wildfires in  California. 

I was brushing my teeth and Willoughby was right next to me... then all of a sudden he wasn't.  I found him seconds later, in the pile of clothes that Alex calls his closet. 

So Sleepy

Again, so sweet when they are sleeping!

"Guys!!! Um Guys????  Let me out!!!!"

future Piano player?

Phantom turned two and had a birthday party!  Happy Birthday Phantom!

Beautiful picture of the Oregon coast sent to me by Alex. 

I absolutely LOVE this picture.... Ethan is so Happy and Matthew is so annoyed!  

Oh how the boys love my iPhone!

Sound asleep on his toy felt ball. 

Wine festival fun

I spent part of a Saturday with my parents at the Windsor Wine Festival.  We had a great day!!  The festival was not too big and the weather was great!  We found a good number of actually good local wines.

I found this hat for the US Open in a few weeks in NY..... Yep, we're going back!!!!

Resting in the shade while Mom and Dad pick up a few of their favorite bottles of wine. 

Catching UP

Life is so busy these days that is is hard to find time to blog.  As a result the below post is from photos way back from the end of July. 

We had a family birthday party for Grandma and it was a Minion Party!!

The boys were pretending to be puppies and drink water from  bowls on the deck..... Silly Boys!

My cute big Boy after a run through the sprinkler!

Grandma blowing out the candles at her Minion Party. 

Oh my sweet sleeping Ethan!  How I wish you would sleep  during regular sleeping hours!  Oh, and in your own bed. 

I have had so much going on that the idea of throwing a big 5 year old birthday party was just too much for me.  So I decided to have Matthew's birthday party at his school.   I bought 10 Wubbles and some really awesome local made caramel popcorn for his class and it went off without a hitch.  The kids had so much fun playing with the Wubbles and eating lots of yummy caramel popcorn drizzled in white chocolate.   Overall it was easy and fun!


Matthew's best friend is a girl named Rian.  Here she is beating him with a Wubble.... 

Bubble party fun!

Grandma took Matthew to the carnival part of New West Fest and he had an absolute blast!  They ate junk food and I can't believed that he jumped on the giant bunny thing. 

Fun on the giant slide at New West Fest with Grandma Johns!  Thanks Grandma for showing Matthew a great time!

"Look Mom!  Ethan climbed into our bed in the middle of the night again!"

Still such a goofy sleeper!

Headed to Nia's Bat Mitzvah.  

My Friend Maddie is the best and the boys love her!!!!

you can't really see well in this photo but poor Ethan has several scrapes on his forehead and on his lip.  Man, being two and doing face plants is tough! 

Maddie the boys and I rode our bikes (with the boys in the trailer) up to TCBY one Wednesday night.  It was so much fun and outside of totally wired boys afterwards we had a great time!
On your birthday at Ripple Effect Martial Arts everyone gets to line up and give you a kick.  Here Matthew is preparing for Master Macy to give it a go.
