  • This tough girl fell on the playground yesterday and lost her tooth that was already a little wiggly.... but then the tooth fairy FORGOT to come in the middle of the night!

Saved the day! She loved her treats and still believes in the tooth fairy!  #mommyhood #momof3 #momlife #momblog #momblogger #kidlife #kidstagram #toothfairy #supermom
  • It's been a year since we lost our beloved Old English Sheepdog, Wilbur was almost 10yrs old and so much apart of our family. We are very close to getting another OES from a breeder soon. They are a very special breed. Of course we've also rescued several dogs over the past 10yrs as well but we are looking forward to having a fluffy puppy around the house soon! #oldenglishsheepdog #oespuppy #dogsofinstgram #momblog #momlife #momof3 #mommyhood #familypet
  • Making our #fiesta float for our school parade! Fiesta is a city wide 3 week long celebration and charity fundraiser which includes many different events around the city with many parades, carnivals, and historical celebrations and traditions! One tradition is school kids decorate shoebox floats and have a parade around the school. Our float theme is 'friendship through soccer' can't wait for the final product! Daddy was equally excited to help engineer her idea of barbies playing soccer lol! Each grade also gets a carnival with food and game booths on the playground! Definitely a fun time of year here! #sanantoniofiesta #vivafiesta #fiestasanantonio #soccer #soccermom #soccerdad #barbie #momlife #momblog #momof3 #mommyhood #craftiness
