There is some sunshine through the rain

Its been a tough few days (see previous post dated 8/16) but there have been moments of sunshine through the rain. Her name is LIA ! In her 2 year old way she has made us smile and laugh with her silly sayings or big hugs.
Here is what she's been up to , thanks to a new car from Uncle Ryan, Aunt Emmy , Cati and Lexi

Going up ......

Has to stop to check under the hood ...

A little traffic jam ! Dont make me get off this car !!

Have a relaxing and peacefull weekend everyone .

In loving memory of Sammy :

As I sit to write this post with tears streaming down my face,  I remember what a great dog and friend he was to our family.
Today we lost Sammy aka Sammy Dog. Unfortunately on a check up it was discovered he had oral cancer.  So with sadness , much debate and heavy hearts we let him pass peacefully.

He was 9 (almost 10) and was always our best pal.  He will be missed and we love him so much. HE was the best dog ever and we know the Rainbow Bridge is a happier place now because of him!!!

Our trip to German Village {SUNDAY SNAPSHOT}

What do sauerkraut balls, beer and God have in common?? ...

A trip down to the St Marys Homecoming Festival ! Between rain showers we managed to eat , drink and be merry. We usually end our night at the German Village Book Loft but this year because of the weather that's where we started out.
We always have such a great time. The food , especially the Hey-Hey Bar's sauerkraut balls, is a must. And the company, Oma and Opa, make this a summer activity we look forward to every year. We meet so many people from the area and neighborhood and hear such wonderful tales. German Village is such a neat area and the little shops are one of a kind.  
It is a true Catholic Church festival know the food, drinks , raffles and of course the gambling !

Look who won a ham, for the 2nd year in a row. God bless that 6:30pm raffle drawing. He wins every time !!!


Here are a few other pictures of the beautiful Church, to which Lia says : 
"Hey nice castle" 

We hope you all had a fun weekend too.
We have some good stuff coming up this week ..stay tuned Lia got a new car ...

Perfectly Imperfect {Sunday Snapshot}

Big Friday night at our house, we were just relaxing on a hot night, inside of course, Lia was getting into anything she could between episodes of Dora and Team Umizoomi, my girl found a headband and would NOT let it go ! She rocked it all night long and cried when it was time to say nite nite to the headband. She is getting so big and her sense of fashion ..
Well see for yourself :  

I mean princess pj's , a little chocolate on the mouth , a boo boo on the chin from a big wheel accident and the ensemble is complete !! Perfectly imperfect and so much fun !!!
