I Love Carrot Cake…

Jenna and our newest addition Denver

Hello, gluten free world again!  These little guys Jenna and our newest addition Denver who is a Red Tri Mini Australian Shepherd have been keeping me super busy as of lately, add that together with all the other things going on in our life which are all good, busy is a bit of an understatement.

So that being said I do want to ask you all a question.  Isn’t he just so handsome?And I really can’t get over just how he is the best little guy ever!! So happy can you tell?  I have wanted one of these little guys for some time now and finally my husband got on board with it. Yay!!!
Oh and his little side kick here isn’t she just such a cutie too?
Jenna has been super helpful it’s great watching our children be more than you could  imagine they would be.
Jenna’s kindness and just authentic love for another living creature is so awesome to watch and Tyler is enjoying our newest addition as well. Thank you God for them.
