Bad, Bad, Coon Dog!!

You see this sweet and innocent looking coon dog. This was last year when he was still a puppy. He has now grown up into a not so sweet and innocent coon dog. I'm so upset with him that I didn't even take a picture of him now.

He stays tied up all the time since he is a coon dog and likes to run off hunting things. We always make Colton let him loose for awhile every afternoon when he comes home from school. Well yesterday Smokey was loose and we were getting ready to leave for ball practice and Colton couldn't find him to tie him up. We were of course running behind so I told him just leave him loose and I will tie him when I get back home. Well I wasn't gone but about thirty minutes and Smokey got into a lot of trouble in a short amount of time.
When I pulled into the driveway I seen him chewing on something. He had killed a guinea. I walked around the corner of the house and there were two other dead guineas. I was very upset. I must confess, I have wanted these things gone for awhile. I told Travis to kill them many, many times. I myself was running around the yard at 6:30 Sunday morning in bathrobe, toting my bb gun and popping the annoying creatures that decided to give us a wake up call under our bedroom window. Even though they were loud and extremely obnoxious I didn't want the dog killing them. Now I'm worried about letting my chickens out.
I guess Smokey had enough of the noise too. Now we are down to three guineas. Maybe three will be quiter.

Please Pray!!

This is such a hard to post. I'm sitting here with tears welled up in my eyes and heaviness in my heart as I write this.

My sister Robin just lost her baby at 32 weeks pregnant. My mom, my neice Morgan, and I went to Atlanta Friday night to be with her and her husband Eric. We were able to see precious Little Eric and hold him. He was a beautiful baby with lots of hair. He was 2 pounds and 14 inches long. Nothing looked wrong with him at all except he wasn't breathing.

We don't understand and probably never will, why this had to happen. But as I was told yesterday by a very sweet lady at a restaurant "God makes no mistakes". I'm hurting for Robin and Eric. I had a miscarriage when I was around 12 weeks and that was very hard, but I know it was nothing like this. I wish there was something that I could do to ease the pain, but I'm afraid only time will do that.

Please pray for them. Pray also for Morgan, this is hard on her as well. We all miss Robin so much and wish we could just hold her and hug her and comfort her in some way. We know that Little Eric is in heaven being rocked by Jesus this beautiful Sunday morning. He will forever by "our little angel!"

I'm A Bad Blogger!

I have not blogged in so long! Sometimes I have nothing interesting to write about or just don't feel like anyone else would think it is.

We had a great Easter weekend! Travis was off from work this weekend, which was very nice. I wish he was able to be off every weekend but he's fortunate to have a job. We took the kids fishing on Saturday. We all had a great time, but no fish for dinner. Colton caught the one and only fish of the day and we threw it back. We enjoyed fun with the family and a nice dinner at Travis' Grandmas yesterday!

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here the past few days! Its in the eighties today. The kids are outside spraying each other with water now. They said they were so hot they were going to die. They better get ready for the heat, its not even summer yet. I hope it doesn't get could again.
