It's been a little chaotic around here!

Hollie is back with us for the summer.  Her mom will be at a different base for the summer and since she'll be living in tents, she couldn't take Hollie with her.   Hollie, Hazel and Dottie are all getting along really well.

Hollie and Hazel are two peas in a pod.

Hazel turned 5 months old this week.  She is so sweet and learning so much.  Hollie is very tolerant of Hazel and all the puppy things she does.

DD (Hollie's mom) also had a birthday this week.  I can't believe how fast 24 years went by.

DD got to spend her 24th birthday in Italy visiting her boyfriend, Michael.  He is also an Army Officer and stationed in Italy.  They met last summer during their first Army assignment after college graduation and then were in officer training together last fall.

Since we took the large maple tree down in February, we've had many birds flying into one dining room window.  

Hubby read that soap could be used to draw a grid on the window and that would help the birds avoid the window.  So we're trying it and the neighbors think it looks strange, but so far, no birds have flown into the window.

  5. The soap is a great idea!! Hollie and Hazel are so cute! My son turns 24 this month - it does go by so fast!!

  6. The doggies all look like good pals. The grid on your window was exactly the right thing to do. As a bird lover, I applaud you!

  7. Wow! Three pups in the house, Pam!! They must be in heaven to have each other to get into mischief with :)

    Happy 24th to your daughter! My youngest son will turn 29 in two month--oh, does that make me feel old!

    Love your stitching--the ort basket is adorable (and useful!).

    Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day!

  8. You have a house full with all the pups! It's great to see the photos of them. That was one HUGE tree in your yard. Great idea using the soap. Will have to remember that one.
