Before we get too much farther into 2016 I thought I would post the rest of the pics from last year. I can't seem to manage to keep up with this blog, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet. The below pictures are from Natalie's Spring Dance recital, a trip to the theater to see Hansel & Gretel ballet, her first horse ride (tandem with a pro) on a horse named Nugget and her Pre-K school musical which was a hard rock version of nursery rhymes.

"Welcome home to the Happy Haus" is the greeting I used to receive from Gary when we arrived home from work each day. Gary and I brought our daughter Natalie home from China in November 2011 to live with us in our cozy cottage. In October of 2013, we unexpectedly lost Gary, our dear husband, father and friend.
Our family includes our two sweet Newfoundland dogs, Katie and Louie. Newfoundlands are working dogs, so we make sure our two always have a job to do. Katie and Louie are both certified therapy dogs and bring lots of joy to people who are in need of some Newfie love. They have also competed in Rally Obedience. Katie has earned a Rally Advanced title and Louie has earned a Rally Excellent title. In keeping with Newf tradition, Katie has become a proficient draft dog while Louie prefers practicing water rescue whenever he gets an opportunity. They are also both protectors of their little sister, Natalie.
