About 10 years ago my Aunt Dorenda asked if we wanted a puppy from her newest liter of Yorkshire Terriers. So a sweet little puppy, that we named Baxter, came into our lives. He slept in our bed and would sleep curled up at the top of Troy's head on many a night. He was a good lap dog and a fierce protector. Like many small dogs he compensated for his lack of size with a lot of attitude. He was even known to chase after a UPS truck a time or two. We had to leave him in the states for almost a year while we lived in Scotland. But we all missed him and were glad to get him back when we came home. When we moved to Virginia we decided to find a new home for him because he was in bad health and we were concerned that he would not make the trip well or survive a cold winter. So sadly we were not with him when the time came for him to leave this world. I know that we will never forget our precious Baxter.
I am a stay at home Mom raising 3 boys with my husband of 12 years. My oldest son is 6, the middle is 6 and the baby is 3. They keep me busy and I love it! We moved from Texas to Virginia in July of 2010, where my hubby has taken a job as an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech. I love reading, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, baking, playing with my kids, listening to music and learning about my Lord and Savior. I welcome any comments as long, as they are respectful.
I read a total of 76 books in 2010 and my goal for 2011 will be 85.
11/25/11UPDATE--I didn't put into consideration that last year I added books of the bible to my list and this year I am not...I didn't keep last year's list but I am pretty sure that at least half of the 76 were just books as opposed to the Bible. So I think a new goal of mine will be to have read 50 books. I only have a month left...
