When Yorkies Attack

Yup, you read that correctly. Apparently our son is going through his adolescent phase and has decided to rebel against us.

Here's what happened last night:
Chris and I went upstairs for a bit and left Shamrock downstairs on the couch. While we were busy, our little man decided to urinate in our dining room (gross, I know). When we discovered his dirty deed, Chris went to get him and put his nose in it. Shamrock knew he was in trouble and could hear the anger in Chris' tone, so he started to snap at Chris! I, therefore, had to grab him, take him to the dining room and give him a spanking. I put him down and that's when Chris reminded me he needed to be placed outside for a time out. When I went to pick him up he bit me...hard enough to put little puncture holes in my skin! I was eventually able to put him outside for a couple of minutes (apparently, not long enough for him to cool down). When Shamrock came back inside, Chris went to get him, but he attacked Chris again! This time his bite was so hard that he actually broke through the skin, causing Chris to bleed!
Needless to say, we were both very disappointed in our son. I still can't believe how mean Shamrock was! Looks like it's time for us to call in reinforcements...a trainer. :/

And just so you know we are telling the truth, we have provided photographic evidence. Behold, the work of our little biter:

You can see Shamrock in the background admiring his work...

Angeleque's Bachelorette Party!

So last weekend was the "fling before the ring" for one of my bestest buddies, Angeleque! All of the bridesmaids packed up, grabbed the bride-to-be and made our way to Austin, TX. Our first stop was to enjoy the view (and eat) at the famous Oasis Restaurant on Lake Travis.

Then we visited Flat Creek Estate in Marble Falls, TX for a wine tasting. Below is a photo of us in front of their vineyard.

After checking into the hotel and getting Angeleque decked out in the traditional bachelorette garb (i.e., veil, sash, ring, etc.), we left to eat dinner at Hula Hut.

Out and about

Hugging my soon-to-be-married friend!

Hope you had fun, Angeleque!!!

Blooming Bluebonnets

This past weekend was beautifully blue! We had our first bluebonnet photo shoot with the one and only Matelyn Vietti. There's a huge bluebonnet field right next to where Matt (Mattie's dad) and I work so we thought it would be the perfect location for Miss Mattie's 18-month photos.

Just a few of Miss Mattie in a sea of blue-

We also took a few at a nearby park:

Hope the Vietti Family enjoys the photos! :)
