Birthday blessings.....

Thank you to everyone who sent birthday well wishes to me yesterday! The text messages, phone calls, thoughtful gifts and cards really ministered to my heart. We played hooky from school and all four of us headed out to dessert hot springs to enjoy the warm sun and water. We laid by the pool, had lunch and just enjoyed our day together.

My mom made me this yummy gluten free strawberry cake so we got home and dug in yum! Dan and the girls also surprised me so many thoughtful gifts as well as cleaning the house while I was out on Monday and then made me pancakes for breakfast yesterday thankful!

So you knew it was just a matter of time before my new little love made my blog right? This is Chloe and she's a little rescue pet.  My aunt originally rescued her but couldn't keep her so she now lives with us and "though she be little she is mighty"...I think Shakespear said that.

We've always had big dogs and said we would never have a little dog but she won my heart over and I couldn't bare to see her go to strangers. She's even invested some time in winning Dan over...

The size difference is ridiculous. Macy is 6'4" on her hind legs and weighs 183lbs. where Chloe is about a foot and half long and weighs 7 lbs. Also, Macy hates her picture taken and refuses to look at the camera...Chloe not so much.
Having a small dog vs. a large dog is funny because you find them sleeping in funny places and they are F-A-S-T little suckers!
She rules the house and the girls are smitten with her..

I like her just a pinch too...

Except it's really hard to see around her ears when I'm on the computer...

You know what else I love? That our youngest still brings me flowers...granted she took them off the neighbors bush. Ha! I also love that she keeps her room clean and does her school work without complaining.....JUST KIDDING! Hey, you can't have it all right? Stolen flowers or clean hard to choose so very hard....ha! Be blessed this week!
