The End of the Day

Scooter is alive for the time being. He is ok for a few moments, when parts of his little personality come out. He even played ball for a few minutes with my dad.

He is back to non-active for now. All he wants is his mom. :) That makes me feel good, because he used to prefer my fiancee. I am still scared, but the vet insists he will be ok until Monday when he has an appointment. :(

Thanks for the prayers. I appreciate it.

I love my dog. He has been the only stable man in my life!!!! :)

Pray for me...

My beloved Scooter dog had a seizure this morning. I have been crying my eyes out waiting for him to return to normal.

I have heard twice that he is "just a dog".

I am scared and upset. I am not sure what will happen to him.

Please pray for me and my kids because:

He is not "just a dog" to us.

Happy Birthday to TYLER!

Exactly 2 weeks ago, my twins turned 11. As of today, I have three 11 year-olds and a 9 year-old.

Today is Tyler's birthday! :)

I love my little meatball. Not to take anything away from the twins, but I was on my way back from Las Vegas on their birthday.

(Yes, I am selfish. Yes, NASCAR is more important than my kids.)

This is a big day, because Tyler is my baby. I always wondered why my mom would always freak when my youngest sister had a birthday. I didn't

Now I understand. Wow. 9 years ago, I was not having a very good time...yet. :)

Have you ever seen a Bakugan?

I was introduced to them by my sweet, destructive neighbor boy, Ken.

"Hey, Janine, watch this!" To my horror, the once sweet, now destructive boy THROWS a small metal looking ball at my car! I had just opened my mouth to ask, "What in the name of Sam Hill are you THINKING?!?" when the little thing popped open.

There it was, the "ball" he had thrown at my car. I guess it actually was plastic too. (Good metallic paint job...) When a certain part of the Bakugan touches metal, it releases the Bakugan to do battle.

(Or something like that...)

This is Dragonoid...we have had tears over the Red version of him...

So, anyway, the little ball popped open into this crazy looking warrior thing! It was also stuck to the side of my car. I tried for like 10 minutes to do the same thing, but it would just bounce off.

Yes, all my children from then on (admit it or not) play with Tyler's Bakugan. He has like 10 of them now, and is an expert on trading and fighting them.

**Think's a whole little world and language that parents do NOT understand.
Yesterday, Ty asked the twins and Chey if they wanted to play Bakugan with him.

Here's how they "play".... It was torturing Tyler!


This is the coolest dog ever!
