Worth Waiting For

Tatyanah and a few of her girlfriends went to a church event called Worth Waiting For.... it was all about self respect and keeping yourself until marriage. It was a great day but the last speaker was waaaayyyyy to much for Tatyanah. She appreciated her story but I was wishing she would have stopped listening!

The girls did hip hop and self defense, watched a fashions show and heard lots of speakers They ate and won door prizes and will all receive a purity ring! They had a blast!

My hero!

I love this guy

Always willing to give a snuggle, lend an ear, play and always always happy to see us! I love the love Takoda has for us, he is such an amazing dog! Except when we had a mouse in our house and he kept sleeping...he is a rat terrier, I had to shove him out of the bed. Jake got the mouse the next day... but that is another story!

Some things are just adorable
