Biologically appropriate raw food(barf). lol Cracks me up so I thought I'd put it in here. After spending to much time researching what we should do and feed our dog he started the barf diet a week ago.This is Kori this morning sitting by him while he eats his raw chicken wing. Seemed funny at first but makes great sense. Unlike wishing the kids could stay small forever Corey and I both want the puppy to be his full size quick!!

Baby Presli

Kori calls Prseli baby Presli! After all Kori is 2 and Presli will be turning 1 very soon. We were very excited to watch Presli this morning while her pretty mama went to have Corey do her hair. We took her to Ella Bella to meet Kendall and Avery at story time. Samson may be feeling left out today since there was just not much time to play with him with 2 toddlers here!

Monday Funday

Monday funday went way to fast as usual. I just wish we could have a whole week here with Corey at home! One cool thing was we took Samson to Dr. Eva's with us for our adjustments and she gave Samson an adjustment! How cool is that? Your pretty amazing Eva! Just should have brought the camera though just like when Kori got her first one as a baby. We are trying to get mema's room painted and finished before she gets here. I think by the time Corey and I have any time we get to talking to much and only little gets done which means we will be doing a lot right before she gets here!

Happy Fathers Day!

Yesterday Kori and I made daddy an angel food cake like we have done a lot of other times except this one did not turn out. What happened??? Same recipe as always. So we got rid of that and ran out to get choco chips to make cookies! Daddy came home with flowers for both of us girls. Kori loves it when daddy surprises her with flowers. She couldn't wait to show him the cookies and say"we have sumbin for you"! It was a great morning at church and a good afternoon outside. Happy Fathers Day!

Love my dog

Love my dog is what Kori says all the time now. We will be at the store and she will just say love my dog mama! Austin called yesterday and asked if Samson remembers him. We decided for his papers his full name is Samson Coaco Callahan. Love it! I have always called Corey Coaco at times since I have first met him. And being Samson is dark brown I thought it was perfect! And... Corey did pick his first name. But its really going to fit him well. Already he is getting big and strong and alot of hair, just like the Samson he is named after!! We love you Samson!

I was looking through some pictures and this is last week I think but I wanted to throw it in. Avery and Kori hanging out with their band aids on. Avery is so sweet- really a little mama! Well realizing its Friday AGAIN already Kori has jumping class this morning so off to that. Looking forward to Fathers day weekend. Kori is excited to make dad a cake. She has already told him! Do 2year olds not keep secrets?? lol

Busy Busy

Well Austin is at his dads for a couple of weeks and the days just seem so busy! Look how big Samson is already! Only have had him one week and he seems a lot bigger. Yesterday Kori and I went to pick up Austin's football pads and Kori of course tried them on and said I want to play to. I wish I would have had my camera yesterday as we got to spend time with our very good friends Kendall and Avery and of course Eva! I need to get a new picture of all the girls up!

I thought these were just cute funny pics. Kori couldn't wait to try on Austins goggles. There are a few playgrounds through out the park so that is a very funny one of Austin swinging. And the last one I just loved how darn cute the car looked with the wagon on top! That is what the cabins looked liked which Kori called our little house.

Turner Falls

This was one of my best times I've had at Turner Falls this year! I was not ready to go home. I was prepared for anything since we were bringing a puppy we've had for only a few days but he did amazing! Lots more pics to post later.

Checking Out!

We are checking out today for a few days! Off to Turner Falls to the cabin until Monday afternoon. Always a fun get away. Lets see how Samson does! I should be able to get great pics of everyone since we will finally just be all together. Austin took some really good pictures of Samson and Kori in the wagon. We were having him practice riding since that is where he will need to be a bit.

Samson info

Ok- I didn't have much time to write about the new baby earlier when I posted pics. He is way easier than I anticipated! He slept all night in his crate and is doing great on a leash. I'm not letting him roam all over until he matures. Thanks to the breeder and Eva for giving me great tips because I would have been clueless and its going really smooth! Kori thinks the crate is for her to. It's really funny. Last night we made a late night Whole Foods run to pick out treats and dog food. Couldn't decide on treats and Corey said just get both we are new at this. lol We will be taking him to Turner Falls on Sat. for a few days. Hoping he will like the wagon!!??? I have printed a lot of reading on natural pet care to read on the drive to Oklahoma so maybe we'll feel a bit more confident soon!

Welcome Samson!

Found our puppy!

Our puppy comes home today! He is 9 weeks old and is a very chocolate male standard poodle. Need to add handsome to. Pickup is at 3 and about an hour away so going to postpone nap until the car ride. I'm thinking Austin will nap to since he had a friend sleep over last nite. Back to the snaps he wanted to go buy a bunch last nite and him and his friend Brandon were entertained with those for a couple hrs. Their ideas were endless. I am very happy to say no more researching for the dog! I am very tired of the computer now! Of course a bit more research now that we have him on natural health care for our new furry family member!

Just wanted to post real quick a picture of the kids throwing snaps. They had a blast- Kori learned quickly its funny to throw by Austin's feet. We will be picking up more soon!

Hour of Power!

The gym- today was body pump but I use to find spinning a real challenge and 4:55am I hop on my bike close my eyes and pray for an hour of power and focus. Works every time, its always a time to get lost in the music and enjoy the pain!! Not a single other thought. Best therapy out there! lol Normally I don't say my hr of power prayer before bodypump but did today. Needed the boost and then finished it off with some hard stair stepping. After I got home we went to Lowes and bought about 70 bricks for a project on our patio and I picked them off the cart and would hand them to Corey and Kori Jade said"mama soo strong"!! Sweet baby girl! Daddy told her you have the strongest mama out there! So nice of Corey but what he doesn't know is that when the gym hurts sooo bad and I can't think I can do anymore I think of Corey at the gym pushing as hard as he can and knowing if he were with me he'd say keep going you can do it!!

Austin's friend Zach invited him to go tubing today so after today and 4 hrs of football camp yesterday I'm thinking he is going to be worn out and in need of a trip to Dr. Eva!! Which by the way Eva did I mention you are going to be our new vet??????? (please)??

We are getting a dog! I have spent so much time lately trying to find our new dog. A chocolate standard poodle. I received one call yesterday that there may be one we can put a deposit on that was born Thursday night. It may be a week before we find out so we are praying this one will be for us and if not we'll know he wasn't for us. This breeder said their are black ones due June 25th so we'll see. We are ready to get the word and go get him some things. I told Corey I don't care on the name- I just really wanted him to be dark chocolate.

Time Flying

This is a pic of Kori at her last jumping class at pump it up. Wanted to throw it in. I've gotten behind on blogging as its just been a busy time. Tuesday somebody broke into our house while I was at Austin's school all day. So that took up a lot of the week- just the doorman a few days and the shock!! A friend of mine ask me how Corey took it because she said he usually seems a bit reserved and wondered how he reacted. When I really started thinking about it I realized just how thankful I am about how Corey reacts to all situations. CALM! lol In return it makes me feel that way to. I have never seen him act out of control no matter what has happened. Watching someone yell out of control back in April had made me think wow I have never heard Corey yell. Anyway Praise God!

Fourth Grade Party

Austin had awards in the morning and his end of year party pretty much the rest of the day at the rec center. So it was another big day in the sun for Kori. I can not believe another school year is done! Austin had a great school year with all A's and B's. Good job Austin!!

Six Flags

Monday funday was Six Flags!! We surprised Austin and he was very excited. This was Kori's first time there and there is quite a bit for her to ride. There were not any lines at the rides! That always makes it soooo fun. Austin and i would run and just hop on. Before Austin rode any of the big ones he wanted tp ride some small ones with her. I thought that was so sweet. After over six hrs I thought how wonderful the day was. No nap and alot of sun and Kori was just as pleasant as she was when the day started. Not one whine! Sweet girl!


It's so cute when Austin and Kori ride their scooters together! Austin does some really cool tricks and Kori will jump on hers trying to copy. Austin makes it look so easy but I just can't manage it the same way he does! Today we are picking up Austin early to surprise him with a six flags day! He is going to be SOOO surprised!
