First pig tails and Kailey's new best friend

Kailey's hair is finally long enough for pig tails! So that's what she got on Monday. She got many compliments from the ladies at Jazzercise, and Jamie, and grandma.

Here is Kailey's new best friend, Blaze. He is Amilyn's (Joel's little sister) dog. She is staying with us a few weeks, until her new apt. is ready. Kailey LOVES this dog.

Bye Sam

Those of you who know our pups, know that Sam had been sick for about a year. He would go through some rough times, then he would seem to get a little better. He had mostly been on a steady decline the past year. In the past couple of weeks his health was really going down, so we decided to go ahead and bring him in to the vet on Tuesday, to have him put down. Joel came home early from work and we all went. When I started to get upset and cry, Kailey quickly reached for Joel, and looked back at me like "what is going on with you?" I was crying, and at the same time laughing at her. I guess because she has never really seen me cry, she didn't know what was going on.

We had a good talk with the tech, and she explained that there were obviously multiple health problems, and that we were doing the right thing. She explained that if we had continued to pursue treatment, we would have most likely ended up right back there after a short time, and lots of money spent. Before going, I was really worried that we hadn't done all that we could do for him, but after that talk, I felt a lot better. All of our family and friends have been really sweet about everything. I really appreciate the calls and, and Elizabeth, the card was so nice.

I made a collage of my favorite pictures, I started with almost 30 and had to narrow it down to 10 :)
