Today I thought I would post a few pictures Lauren took while at JH Ranch last week. I won’t post all 300 of them. I mostly just wanted you to see the amazing location she was at in northern California.
JH Ranch horses running
This is the "Big Top" where they had services each night
They had to go out hiking and camping in the wilderness. They were supposed to stay two nights. But it rained from the time they got there, all through the first night and most of the next day. So, they left early and headed back to camp. These next few pictures will be ones taken on that trip.
Looking down on the camp
On the top
High enough in the mountains that there is still snow on the ground
But she hiked it anyway - tank top, shorts and tennis shoes
Camp site - 5 to a tent - because it rained all night they all woke up wet with their things wet as well - MISERABLE
Lauren and her camp bestie, Casey. She lived in Birmingham. So we will be seeing more of them.
They did amazing things and had amazing experiences. This has changed Lauren! You know how you always felt so good and on fire after church camp? Yeah – that!

Quite possibly the sweetest shot for Sweet Shot Tuesday!
Faith finally got a hair cut today. Actually the more appropriate word would be SHAVE. In the summer I get her shaved. She is part Shih-Tzu/Terrier but thankfully she doesn’t have the floor length hair part of the Shih-Tzu. Unfortunately she has the shaggy looking terrier hair part. In the winter I let her hair grow out for warmth. But I really can’t stand it long. It gets all knotted and she just looks messy. Finally, though, spring is here and it’s shaving time. So today’s Sweet Shot Tuesday are pictures of Faith. First of all, here is a picture of the TERRIFIC place we take her. If you live in Nashville you can’t go wrong with Pampered Pets in Donelson.
Pampered Pets in Donelson
It’s kind of located in a country setting in the back of a subdivision off of Lebanon Rd. They take such sweet care of Faith. They just love her. And she loves them and the love they give her. She gets plenty of loves, hugs and kisses every single time.
Here is her sweet little self after her grooming visit:
If you are in this area and looking for a good second home for your little one for boarding or for grooming then Pampered Pets is your spot! I can’t recommend them highly enough for lots of love and attention!
Hello my name is Lacy!
Today’s Sweet Shot Tuesday entry is about my Uncle’s dog, Lacy. She is a Yorkshire Terrior and is spoiled and sweet all at the same time!
What's in there, Aunt Judi?
She likes to look for gum in women’s purses! See her trying to get her nose in mom’s purse?
I need some lipstick on too, Aunt Judi!
Are you gonna drop anything? I'll clean it up if you do!
I wanna help make pizzas too!
See how pretty I am!
This is my daddy - Pam's Uncle Gary!
She is just the sweetest thing!! She and Faith are both spoiled about the same! Isn’t that what a dog is for?
If you have some sweet shots to share for this week swing on by Darcy’s blog and share it for Sweet Shot Tuesday!
A couple of months ago Ron bought Faith a new bed. The problem was that she wouldn’t use it. The cats, however, are quite fond of it. So it is not going to waste. So yesterday I decided to buy her a new bed. The original bed that she had suddenly became Biskit’s litter box when we first got Chewey. I know it’s gross. I wasn’t particularly excited about it when I discovered it myself. So while I was in the doggie aisle getting Faith’s food at Target yesterday I noticed this adorable little bed. I thought it would be just the right size. It ended up being a little too small. But when she curls up in her sleeping ball (heehee) it’s a good fit. I showed it to her when I first got home. She gave it a good sniffing. I put it in various places around the living room. And I talked about it with her all afternoon. I would take her over to it and sit her down in it. Of course she would automatically jump right back out. So this morning I noticed she was curled up on a blanket on the couch (at least it wasn’t my clean laundry – UGH). I thought this would be a good time to take advantage of the sleepies….so I folded up the blankets and put them away and moved the bed up on the couch in the exact same spot. I was pleased to see that she jumped right in it. And she was positively the cutest thing ever. See for yourself!
Mommy, this is not a good time for a photo shoot......
Isn’t she just precious? Her adorableness is just too much for me to handle sometimes! And I’m thankful that she likes her new bed. I should note here that a couple of hours after this picture was taken she went out for a potty break. When she came back inside she jumped right back up on the couch and hopped back in the bed. SCORE!!!!

Today is Sweet Shot Tuesday. I got a number of sweet shots for this past week. I think my fav for the week is from last night. Ron and I went out for Valentine’s Day. We went to Panera Bread. We didn’t want to wait forever for a table at any restaurant and thought Panera would be a good option. It was. IT was pretty much empty. And we took Lauren with us. You know you’ve been married for a long time when you don’t mind taking your teenage daughter with you on your Valentine’s date. After dinner Ron wanted to get a picture of his favorite Valentines.
Me and My "baby"
It’s such a good picture of Lauren. She just got her hair done on Saturday. The highlights are perfect. It’s hard to believe my baby will be 16 next week. I treasure every picture she wants to take with me. She will be gone too soon. Ron is a lucky man to have such beautiful valentines this year. HA!
