Koda has peed one time too many. I spend waaaay too much time policing the dog to actually enjoy having the dog so one day I read on the internet something like, "Is your Dog peeing on everything in your house? Get him neutered!" Done and Done. I called around, found the cheapest place possible, and took him in the next day. I was slightly worried that I was paying 300 dollars less than everywhere else, it was in a bad part of downtown Denver and I could get him in within 12 hours of my phone call but hey, I was desperate, cheap and angry. So, BWD took him in at 7 a.m. Friday morning and picked him up at 5 p.m. looking like he got in a fight with a lampshade and lost. Poor dog. That's the sad part of my title. He truly is SAD. But who wouldn't be sad losing their family jewels? Chalk it up to Koda's first lesson on not turning my house into a piddle pad.

We just had our pictures taken last Friday. They actually turned out well (I'll have to somehow get them on this website later) but I have to admit I hate family pictures. It's not the actual posing and smiling that kills me it's the work one has to go through leading up to the actual pictures. Finding the right outfits that don't clash and are outside weather appropriate. Making sure everyone tries to stay healthy so one doesn't have to see bright red noses, swollen eyes and chapped lips, or worse. Doing the hair. Practicing the smiles so my kids don't look like they're constipated. And getting everyone ready in time so we're not late. It's stressful people! These photos will be on our walls for years to come! We need to look perfect, right???

I just love it when kids hear a swear word and want to know what it means! It's such an awkward moment to have a chat saying or spelling out words that we would never an any other circumstance ever say. We were all in the car listening to Taylor Swift and she says the word Damn. Of course Sydie wants to know what that means, and all my kids fill her in. Coby immediately pipes up: "Yeah, but you can totally yell out "Beaver Dam" and that's okay to say". BWD thought that was the funniest thing he's heard in a while and immediately starts acting as if he's hit his finger with a hammer, screaming, "BEAVER DAM! BEAVER DAM!" It was too funny. Then Coby wants to know if "Beaver DamIT" is still kosher. Ummmmm, probably not.
