Happy Birthday Mama

Today is my Mother's birthday. She would be turning 96 today if she were still alive. My Mama died when I was 19 years old. The picture of her above was taken shortly before she died. The other picture, of course, was taken when she was much younger. She has been gone from my life now longer than she was a part of it. It is amazing just how much of an influence your mother is on you, isn't it. It has been so long since I have seen her, it would be so nice just to spend an afternoon talking to her. Sometimes I have dreams of her. I usually dream that she comes to me and we just talk. When I wake up I feel like I have had such a nice visit with her. It has been a long time since I had one of those dreams.
My Mom had a lot of problems in her life. She fell into a lifestyle that was not good for her or for her family. She caused herself and her family a lot of angst, but she was a very giving very talented woman. She taught me a lot in my short 19 years with her. She was a fabulous cook and would give anyone the shirt off of her back if she thought you needed it more than she did. I guess it is good to have days of rememberance. I have spent the day just missing my Mom.
So Happy Birthday Mama. I love you!

Updated photos of the puppies

On Saturday I got to go to a local UKC show. I have never been to a UKC show before so it was fun to see how it all went. I really enjoyed it. I didn't show any dogs, but I took my 3 puppies to socialize them and Shannalee helped me take pictures. It was fun to go and who knows maybe I'll play in UKC someday. I'm excited to have some new pictures to share with everyone. Here are the pictures that we got of "Kari" Mistybrook Curvaceous. Kari is by Ch. Macdega Notorious X Ch. Imagine Dangerous Curves. She is now 7 months old.

The next pictures are of "Jamie" Lacewood Jamaican Moonrise. She is now 4 months old and such a pistol. She is a funny little puppy, but we are enjoying her and her sister Traci. She was being a little pill about the pictures so there are only a couple of her.
Here is Miss "Traci" Lacewood Traces of Moonlight. She and Jamie are sired by BISS CH. Sea Haven Chasing Moonbeams,ROM X BISS CH. Lacewood Bi Starlight. They are 4 months old and so full of themselves. I hope you enjoy the photos of these babies!!

Thank you Shannalee for helping me get this beautiful photos. It is so much easier to do when you have help and when you have someone as talented as Shannalee helping you it is really nice!!

Thanks to everyone for letting me share my puppies!!
