As of last week, Sassy is now in puppy heaven. :( She's in a much better place and it was past time, but it's still sad! She was still a young dog at 8 1/2 years, but something happened with her back where she couldn't walk a year and a half ago. Steroids helped, but not long term, and it was still painful for her. That was such a hard decision for us to make. Presley took it harder than I thought she would. She understands more than I give her credit. Teagan just wants to go to puppy heaven and see her.

Cousin Summer Fun!

There's nothing like an impromptu dip in the pool with your cousins!

I've had a little of the writer's block each time I've sat down to blog about Presley turning four. So instead of writing about her, I thought I'd post pictures of when she was little over the last four years, but there were too many pictures to weed through for that child. So I thought I would post some pictures of what she's been into lately.

She loves to swing. She likes to go "higher, faster". This is a homemade swing at Honey and Poppa's house that the girls loved, so Poppa made one for our house!

All a girl wants is some boobs for her fourth birthday. She is allllll girl, this child. If it's not balloons filled with water, it's toilet paper stuffed in her shirt.

She loves to take pictures. She took this one of Weegs. I love everything about it! She really captured Teagan and I'm loving the composition. We'll have to work on the focus a bit!

If she's not changing clothes five hundred times a day, she's expecting. She told me she had "ten babies in her belly." And she asks for a baby brother almost every day! Each time, I send her to tell her father! (He's the one holding us up!)

Last but not least, she loves LOVES her sister, little Talalula, or sometimes just Tally.

She's also into tatoos and stamps, which I think she thinks is the same thing. She wanted me to put a tatoo left over from her birthday treat bags on her. She wanted it on her shoulder blade...

We clean up nicely

When everyone's all cleaned up, I'm compelled to take a few photos. We are rarely all cleaned up it seems like. Usually we're chillin' in our skivvies and couple probably use a bath. But here the girls are all dressed up for Presley's birthday party. I had a cute dress picked out for Teagan, but she wanted something of the tutu nature like big sister. So we went to the play room and found a little somethin'.

It was a fun day, and more soon on that because my baby's FOUR!!

Update on our garden

Our garden is growing great! Everything except the pepper box. I'm not sure if there are pepper plants or weeds growing in there...

This is the squash (and my two junior gardeners).

I can't wait for the goods!!

Yesterday I worked in the front yard and planted impatiens in all my window boxes. They provide great color, easy to grow, and you don't have to dead head them! When we moved here, there were petunias in the window boxes, and literally we had to dead head every day (in the heat, ya'll!) Anyway, I found a 20 count flat for $16 at Landscape Source here in Rockwall. Which is a GREAT deal!

On the porch, only one of my geraniums came back (for the third year) after the freeze, so I finally found another red geranium for the other side since that one did not come back. It's hard to find those this late in the season, but never-the-less I found those at Walmart for only $4.

I also got my watering system up and running (almost) all by myself. Hubby had to troubleshoot a few things this morning.

After getting such a big job done, I feel so accomplished! Once they fill out a little, I'll post a picture! Next yard day, I need to pick weeds in the front, in a major way! And probably mulch!
