Thursday, May 19th, 2015 WAS Toby Moses's 9th birthday!!

Hi friends!
I have been a naughty mama.  The truth is...I had trouble finding the camera cord to hook up to the computer to download pictures of my baby and his new Bummlie, Emmitt the Clown, made by Melissa Langer from the blog Life is Art, Art is Life that he received from his girlfriend, the sweetest soul we know, Tweedles.

Here he is talking to his Emmitt Bummlie (you can read if you want...very G-rated):

Toby:  Hi Bummlie!  I am Toby Moses.  What is your name?
Bummlie:  Hi Toby Moses! My name is Emmitt.

Toby: You remind me of a friend I had in Colorado named Emmitt....hmm....

Toby Moses:  Do you mind Mother?  I am talkin' to Emmitt about the cool stuff we could do together...like take a morning nap, which you are so rudely interrupting with the flashy beast.

Toby Moses:  Awww....I love ya' mama and couldn't stay mad at you long.
Kisses to My Tweedles!! (My Garden Fairy Woodland Princess)
Thank you Tweedles for making my little man's day super fun and sweet.  He did get chicken nuggets and will get some icy-creams tonight once his daddy (my dad) comes home.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy & Toby Moses, too

Mama is graduating Saturday, May 16th!!

Hi furiends!
Wesa been waiting for mama's final score to come in...the one on her big ol' Teacher Work Sample (TWS) and she passed!!  Mama is going to graduate this Saturday in cap and gown.  The school that she went to was distance education meaning that they had many campuses around the state, but a main campus elsewheres. Anywho...she will be traveling an hour away to go to the graduation.  Shesa had a very bad struggle with her depression and anxiety this semester, but she read your blogs and that helped bunches! So...thank you for being blessings from God to our mama.  This was a hard self-battle, but she won out in the end and is graduating with honors.  Right now, the state of Kansas is battling the governor on his removing education funding and trying something that is called block-funding, which is much less than the schools need to run efficiently and effectively.  Jobs are really limited right now...but are to pick up by the end of the month, June, and even August. Mama hasn't found a job yet, but she will do her best to find one.  It is her belief that the right place will come along and she will love it wherever she gets placed.  Her preference is USD 259 or Wichita, KS, the largest city in Kansas located 20 minutes away from our hometown.  Her next preference are schools in the Butler County area, wheresa our hometown is located. 

Wesa just wanted to let you share a bit in our happiness and proudness of our mama.  BTW--She is making up for lost time by snuggling with us a lot...but she has a way to go to make up for the loss. Do not worry furiends, wesa will get our rubbins and luvins made up and doubled by the end of summer...that is our current plan anyways.

Wesa loves, loves, loves you all and hope your May is a happy one like ours is for us'uns!!

Much Luvums,

Auction for Da Weenies of Florida's Sister-in-the-skin, Shelly

Hi all of our wonderful friends! 
If you are reading this, then you have not deleted us from your blog roll. Gracias!
Mama only has two more weeks of student teaching left and boy is she wiped out.
Wesa do the best we can to keep her in good spirits and eye boogers and fur all over her clothes. :)
Those third graders need to know that shesa oursa mama, not theirs, after all. Hehehehehe!
 
Anywhos!  Mama and us'uns have decided that any auction for Da Weenies and their fur and skin family is an auction we want to be a part of...so the mama has donated some jewelry pieces for the upcoming auction--gently used of course, free shipping for the U.S.  The auction begins, Tuesday, April 28th, and runs past Mother's Day (May 10th) all the way to Tuesday, May 12th.  Please visit the auction.

After the auction is over, we will hopefully get mama to post about her student teaching and what the future holds for her.  See you in a few weeks! BTW--Do you like our header? Ann of Zoolatry made it...and wesa can bet that she has donated not only her talent to providing the badge above for the auction, but she will probably also have an item to bid on where she can make you something fabulous for your blog.

Tah Tah For Now!

Three Dogs Needing a Home or Permanent Foster--Including a PUG named Miss BUG!!

My dear friend Chrystal of Winnie's Wish cathouse also helps a local shelter out by fostering a few of the dogs during the cold, winter months in Illinois and then returns them to the shelter to find homes.  Three little angels that she has in her care need to go to a permanent foster or forever home.  Please help by reading her post (that I have copied below) and share if you do not plan on saving one of these sweeties.  I want to hear that someone out there will find it in their heart to love one of these loveable babies.  BTW--There is a old, pug lady among the group...and if Lily did not have her issues with other females...it would have been a no-brainer for the Slimmer family.  Any of my other pug peeps without a possessive pug out there that will help Miss Bug?
 
Please spread the word.  Please pray friends.
 
Much Love,
Mama Mindy :)
