Tonight, "the girls" got together to celebrate Jamie's big 3-0 at the Oyster Bar in Dahlonega! In addition to the very special birthday, we celebrated the birth of two babies and new jobs for me and Maggie. You see...we all worked together at the high school, but I moved to elementary school and Maggie is making the big bucks training Estee Lauder employees all over the state. Scary that after one year of teaching, she has already made a career change. Seriously though, I am very very happy for everyone and the new chapters they have started in their lives. It was a lot of fun getting together and talking ( and a lot of laughing) about old times. I really wanted a picture of everyone and I was so excited that my hair had actually grown out enough to get in a itty-bitty ponytail. However, it did not make a very flattering picture...blah!

Brock has decided that we cannot keep all the puppies...sigh. They are just so cute and I know it is going to be so hard to let these guys go. We are going to sell them, if you know of any interested parties. They are AKC registered, their dew claws have been removed and both parents are on sight. I do have a final count on what we have... 4 yellow females, 1 yellow male, 1 chocolate female, 3 chocolate males and 1 black female. Here are some pictures at 3 days old. Brock is holding a yellow female in the palm of his hand...man do they get big quick!

It has been 3 weeks since my last post and I am feeling like a slacker. There were many pictures I wanted to post...Hallie's 5th birthday party, my graduation, the trasition of my classroom at Mossy Creek and Gentry and Grant's first day of school. Well, I guess that won't happen. I have been working like crazy at school trying to get things ready and time just flew by. Speaking of time flying by, Gertie's pregnancy did as well. We now have 10 full-blooded, Lab puppies. There are 5 yellow, 4 chocolate and 1 black. Man, we are so excited (and a little nervous). A week or so ago we took Gertie for an x-ray to see how many puppies she was having...I almost passed out when Liane counted 11 heads and little backbones. After much anticipation, Gentry and I arrived home to 9 little pups, but unfortunately one did not make it. Brock and Grant arrived home shortly afterward and we decided to take her to the vet because we were missing 2 puppies. She delivered one on the way to the doctor and the last little brown puppy in the Papa's Pizza parking lot in front of a very anxious crowd on the way home. All the puppies are doing great and the Pulliam family is ready to go to bed. I thought you all might enjoy a pic even though you can't really see the puppies...the neighborhood will enjoy seeing the picture. I promise I will post again, soon.

Here are the prize peppers from my garden. The garden started off as an experiment, and it worked!!! I have a ton of tomatoes (all green), bell peppers, cucumbers, cayenne and jalapeno peppers. I just planted what they were selling in the greenhouse at the high school. Next year, I am going to plant stuff that I actually like. So, if you would like some cayenne or jalapeno peppers, or any idea of what to do with them, let me know. I am very proud of my garden, it is like Christmas everyday...I go out there and get my presents. I would like to give a special thanks to those who helped me...Brock for tilling, Amber for the fertilizer, and John Dean for sitting on his golf cart and telling us what to do...oh yeah...and my dad. He is who inspired me and taught me to appreciate the simple things in life...like my tiny veggie garden.

Last night Brock and I were without kids. When Grant goes to his mom's house, Gentry feels the need to go to my mom's house (we joke and say my parents have visitation every other weekend). The two of them hate to be together, but can't stand to be at home without the other. So, with both of the kids gone, we went to dinner at Poor Richard's and joined his parents at The Tams concert at the The Arts Council Depot. I have no pictures because this was an impromptu trip. Pictures or not, we had so much fun! It was a great way to spend a summer night! I highly recommend it if they ever come around again. They are a great mixture of beach music and R&B. Not only was the music good, those guys have some moves...I was tired just watching them. One of the members has been on the road with The Tams for 51 years, he is 71 now...he was amazing. For real, check 'em out. ~Shanna
