FInaly Done!!

after two long months of feeding zuze three times a day he is finally eating hard food! I cant wait to completely wean him off milk. although he is fun and cute, he was becoming a pain in the ass. Once he is fully on hard food i can start looking for my next pet ;)


What's on TV?

In my spare time I love to watch television series. I watch a variety of genres from horror to drama. A few series that are my top favorites are American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and The Office. I love the suspense that each series brings to the table and the ability to discuss each episode and premieres with coworkers or friends is fantastic. I definitely recommend the listed shows!

The End

Thank you all for visiting our blog and learning about our lives. We appreciate your interest and we hope you all feel like you know us a little bit better.

Onyx and Jet experienced snow for the first time. I love to throw animals in the snow. They never seem to like it much. I wonder why? Onyx is the one who loves to try and sneak outside. He's the one who gets locked in the bathroom when we have groceries to bring in. Jet is curious about what's outside but she is very cautious about stepping out the door. Once she gets out, she explores for a minute or two and then goes back to the door to be let in.

Onyx getting ready to run under the porch where we can't reach him.

Jet is a little bit scared of the outdoors.

But she's checking things out anyways.

Jets not happy about being thrown in the snow.

Well it is already eight in the morning, i have spent the last two hours chasing animals through the pasture. For whatever reason the three pigs found a way out of their pen. Although i am sure they enjoyed running a muck around the farm it was time to get them back where they belonged. _- What a way to start the day!

Fergus Lima Bean

I have a green tree frog named Fergus L. Bean. My friend Kim caught him peeping in the ladies shower room twice when we went camping together. The second time, she captured him for me. He changes colors depending on the time of day. Usually he is pale white during the day and gets darker as it gets closer to night time. When I wake up around 2AM for work, he is bright green. I am sure he doesn't like it much in a cage so when the weather gets better, I will be releasing him at the campgrounds he grew up in. Part of the reason is because Onyx likes to terrorize Fergus. Onyx will bat at the cage until it gets tipped over or knocked onto the ground. Fergus has gotten loose this way before but he is always more than happy to have us put him back in his cage. He knows it's much safer in there. It's wild watching him eat. Fergus makes eating look so violent! He gobbles up mealworms so fast that if you blink, you would miss it.


A Cat Crash

My boyfriends 9 year old niece, Phoebe, saw my blog and she wanted to surprise me with a post so she took the pictures herself and wrote up a small piece for me to post for our class on her behalf. She's a really smart girl (straight A's on her report card every time) and she loves our kittens. Phoebe even plays Scattergories with us after dinner! The kittens look forward to people coming over to visit however sometimes Phoebe's little brother, Phoenix, will unintentionally scare them. :D Jet and Onyx are usually tuckered out before Phoebe and Phoenix leave after Sunday dinner. It's a good thing. These kittens have too much energy and need someone who can tire them out! :)

A Cat Crash by Phoebe

Now, Jet and Onyx don't crash into the wall in this post (but they do). This kind of crash is a car crash, and I think Jet caused it. But it might have been someone else.

"I didn't do it!"

 "Ummm... Bye!"

Quack Quack!

Much like my friend Chazz, I own a few 'farm' animals! I wish I could say I have four ducks, but unfortunately two did not make it due to forest animals digging under our fences. Two are survivors and they are going strong. They aren't so friendly to our cat or dog, but to us humans, they are very sweet. We live near a river so they love the occasional walks to the stream during the summer time. Quack!

Young Love

Some people say high school relationships never last, but what about middle school relationships? I fell in love with a special girl by the name of Jaice. We have been together for over 5 years, March 4th being our 5 year anniversary. Jaice and I grew up together and became very close. We make each other happy and that's all that matters. We even graduated high school together, as seen to the right. Class of 2012!

Bobbikins - Endless Pit

Bobbi is a beautiful cat that I have grown to love. We had her since she was a kitten and much like my dog Emma, she like 3 years of age. She loves to have her neck/head scratched, but mostly loves kitty food. She eats about 3-4 times per day, and still is in healthy condition (where does it all go!) She loves to play with string and wrestle footsies under the blanket. She is also an advanced hunter of birds and small creatures!


Emma - The Cutest Pain in the Butt

Approximately 3 years ago, I was blessed with the opportunity of adopting a cockapoo (cockerspaniel/poodle mix). She was not a cheap puppy, but the joy she brings my entire family is priceless. She is a sweet dog, but very stubborn and playful. After a hard day's work, she will be the first one to greet you home!

Jonny and Rocco our two big jersey cows. Johnny is to the right, Rocco to the left. They try to play and have fun, but i think they forget how big they are. ;)

This video is a true representation of what life means to me as an American.

- Cheryl

Max came into our lives as a tiny ball of fur. He soon went from being scared and timid to realizing he was the center attraction in everything we did. My youngest daughter, Ashley and he developed an inseparable bond.

Ashley would refer to Max as her little brother. They did everything together.

Max would make us laugh, worry us when he ran away, and has always been included in our family plans. During difficult times, Max was always a comfort, with unconditional love and devotion to share.

Max stills looks for Ashley, although, she has moved out now. As the years have passed, he has slowed down a lot. He is almost blind now. I don't mind caring for him, as he has brought us so much love and attention. He has enriched our lives. Max has truly been an old faithful friend.


Beginning with the Letter "S," Board-Game.

Sold in every store that sells board-games. 

How is it played? Good question! Someone rolls a dice with most of the letters of the alphabet on the faces of the dice. Then you start the timer and you go down a pre-determined list of categories  The list will tell you what kind of word to come up with. For instance, if the letter is "G" and the category is "state" then you can either write down "Georgia" or "grumpy." It helps you to score points if you are creative. The next category down that list could be "Color" so then you would have to come up with a color that begins with the letter "G." You could put "green" but there's a good chance that someone else will be writing "green," so you could put down "golden mustard." Obscure words and things are usually the way to go. Sure, it's easy to think of the word now but when you are sitting with a group of people and there's a timer buzzing away and you need to think of 12 things to write down in different categories that all begin with the letter "J," you're going to have a hard time. Scoring depends on your word. If someone else use the same word, your answers cancel each other out and neither of you get a point for the word. If you make a unique word, you get one point. If you use two words and both begin with the same letter, you get two. Three words with the same letter, 3 points, and so on and so forth. You can string many words together such as "red fire hydrants" for "things found at a park" beginning with the letter "R." You still only get one point for that though. I like coming up with all these different things so I really enjoy the game! Like most other games, it's more fun if you play with more people.  :D
