Our new puppy!

We got a new puppy this weekend! Her name is Daisy and she is a puggle, a cross between a pug and a beagle. She's very sweet and lovable, and very playful! Duchess has done well with her so far, but is still not quite sure about her...she tends to still want to play long after Duchess has tired out! That and her piercingly shrill bark have been troublesome for this family transition, but we're hoping to break her of those habits! The people we got her from gave us some numbers of others who called about her, in case we can't make it work, but we're hoping it does because she's so cute and sweet! Here are some pics of our new girl!

Mike's Job situation...

Today when Mike went to his in-service, he found out that his head coach got fired...meaning we weren't sure what was going to happen about Mike's job. After meeting with the Athletic Director Mike found out that since Coach McCone is leaving and they are getting a new head coach, more than likely the new coach will bring his own staff with him. So Crowley will honor Mike's contract through the end of they year, and then he will need to find another job if he wants to continue coaching....which if you know Mike, means he will be looking for another job. Luckily, it won't affect us right now, but it is a little scary to know that Mike will have to find another job before the next school year. We are just praying and trying to remember that the Lord has a plan for our lives, and he obviously is showing us that he has a better place in mind for Mike. We would appreciate all of your prayers as we try to find another teaching/coaching position for Mike!

Christen's Birthday weekend!

This weekend Mike and I went up to Lubbock to surprise Christen for her birthday. Ronnie and I worked so hard to surprise her and we got so close...until we were about 20 minutes outside of Lubbock! Then Ronnie handed Christen his phone, I texted him about directions....but she was so excited anyway and we had a great weekend! Here are some pics to recap our fun weekend!

This was us pretending to be surprised, even though we weren't really....LOL

This was us being really excited that we got Super Mario Bros. for the Wii! It was soooo fun! We were all 4 definitely addicted to this game!

Christen and me after we got our hair trimmed and highlighted!

Christen and me making mosaics at the Mud Room, a pottery painting place in Lubbock! So much fun!

Christen and I getting ready to go see "New Moon"! We loved it, the movie was so great!!

Eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel before we headed back home!

We had such a great weekend and we were so sad to have to come home! Sometimes I forget how much we miss those crazy Leidners, but we're so thankful for the time we do have together!

Cute Client Quote

This week, a little 7-year-old girl client asked if I could come to their house for Thanksgiving! When I said I couldn't because I would be with my family, she said, "I guess I understand that..." At least I know she likes me, right? :)

Client Quote of the Day

Said by a 13-year-old boy client: "I know they say talking about your feelings helps solve your problems, but my main problem is that my mom is always yelling at will talking about my feelings change that?"

He's very clever...

Client quote of the day

Since I work with so many interesting clients everyday and I am amused/amazed by so many things they say, I thought I would start putting a "Client Quote of the Day" post on my blog each day. Hopefully you will all enjoy them! It will give you a tiny glimpse into what I hear every day!

Client quote of the day:
When doing a therapeutic activity with a child client called "The Worry Bee", in which the child writes his/her worries/sadnesses along the stripes of the bee, my 6-year-old client said, "I'm sad that Michael Jackson passed away, let's put that on there!" LOL, he's entitled to his feelings, what can I say?

Wow, it's been awhile!

Life has been so busy lately I've been forgetting to post on my blog! I also need to redo our blog layout...will try to do that soon! Since my last post, I've been busy with work, family stuff, and I turned a year older! I'm now doesn't feel different but it sure sounds older! Here's a picture of Mike and me on my birthday, headed to Pappadeaux's!

And below are the beautiful flowers Mike got me!

Mike also got me a Kitchen Aid mixer, which I LOVE! I was very spoiled this year on my birthday!
