The Gulfport Harbor Lights

This weekend the little girl and I had a great time at Jones Park, Gulfport.  We were able to see the Gulfport Harbor Lights.  For a first annual show, I am so proud of the whole set-up.  We had a great night just relaxing and walking  around, looking at the light show.  I’ve never been to anything like this, so seeing it for the first time with my little one, made it very special for the both of us.

We started out the day by walking on the beach because we arrived a little too early.  The sky and weather were both beautiful, and it made for a perfect start.  We had the beach to ourselves and could have made sand angels. . . but I value my sanity when cleaning out my car.

The dogs are loving the RV!

I wanted to give you a quick updates on how the pups are doing.  The dogs are loving the RV!  The first week was rough, and we did end up with an accident, (the dog did, not me!) but we have a routine now and they are acting a little more calm. I’m sure by next week, it will be smooth like butter.  There are a couple things we have learned though since moving into the camper with them.  I’m pretty surprised at how much more we are attuned to them.

2015 Advent Calendar made easy!

We ended up having a lovely Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving Pt. 2 “The leftovers return”, all thanks to my in-laws.  It’s been years since someone else has cooked the big meal for me, so this was absolutely wonderful!  What a great break!  With all of this extra time, I was able to focus and create our Advent Calendar for December.  I usually make one with cardstock and put it on the wall in the shape of a Christmas Tree, but space is at a premium these days.  So, I picked up this cute one at Target.  This really was an impulse buy, but I knew as soon as I saw it, it would be perfect.  The little pockets are perfect for a slip of paper and a small piece of candy.  My daughter saw it hung up and was instantly in love.    You can also DIY some really cute calendars.  My favorite is the cute critter display here.  There are so many possibilities!

Moving Out Quickly!

And… we are back to frantic mode again!  The hubby and I are so happy that the offer worked out, and we have come to a deal.  Our house is officially off the market and in contract.  The catch is that we have to be moved out in exactly 7 days from today.  7 days!

Even with our house staged, we still had a full house of furniture.  So what have we done in the last couple days?

They really are beautiful pups.  And SOOOO soft.

A Wheaten Terrier is the best kind of friend

Since they are in my photos so much, I have to share some information about my two little fur babies.  When we moved back to America after a tour in Germany, we promised the kids we could get a puppy.  I was reluctant, since I knew they were a big responsibility and frankly did not want to clean up after them all of the time.  The housetraining, the fur, the slobber. . . it’s a bit much for a non-dog owner to come to terms with.  We started talking about they type of dog we wanted in our life.  Our list included: low fur maintenance, medium sized, likes family and kids, all around friendly, but trainable.  He or she had to be something my in-laws could pick up and hug, but not so small that my youngest daughter would hurt it by picking it up.
