a better evening.

Photobucket

how did my little puppy go from this 7 lb guy...

Photobucket

to this..... ??? ahhh he is getting so big. he is 3 months old now. anyway, tonight has been much better than the earlier part of the weekend. sean has been feeling a little bit better the past couple of hours. i really believe that everyone's prayers have helped. so thank you so much for all your sweet thoughts and comments. it is amazing what the power of prayer can do. i don't often get too spiritual on this blog, but i am grateful for your prayers and thoughts. you have no idea how much they have helped us today. sean was able to get up and walk outside with mosey for a bit. mind you, they only walked around our front yard, it was still a walk. we are trying to teach mosey how to heel. and that is requiring a choker chain. i hate that word. but this chain is really working for him. if he tries to run ahead or drag behind, the collar gets a little tight so he is learning he has to stay right by our feet. he is doing so good.

earlier today i caught him taking a nap like this...

Photobucket

at another point i walked in and he was laying in the same position. except he was awake. and he was staring straight at me. creepiest thing i have ever seen. he just sat there. he acted like he was caught doing something bad or something. it was pretty funny. i wish sean could have seen his face. he had all limbs in the air laying on his back. it was pretty funny. we have mosey in a crate, and then outside of his crate is his food and water and another little fence that we let him roam around in. well last night he figured out how to take his tin food and water bowl out of this plastic thing that they both sit in. then he figured out how to take the rubber padding and bottom off of the plastic thing.. in about 30 different pieces, in case you were wondering. then he brought the plastic thing into his kennel, and somehow managed to pull his little towel through the holes in it. i have no idea how he did it. and that probably made no sense but it was crazy.

Photobucket

this is what sean has been doing today. actually he has been in bed but has finally ventured out to the couch. and then went on that little walk. he still is feeling sick, but doing a lot better considering how he was this morning...

Photobucket

well i told you that i found my camera charger. and i got bored and decided to take a picture of my feet because everyone always has these cute feet pictures. then i realized, oh wait. they actually have cute feet. i do not. and you can try all you want to pretend and tell me that i do but the proof is in the picture. and they look worse in person. cuz i did some airbrushing. yep. after i uploaded it to picnik i almost died. my pedicure from 2 months ago was a mess. so i decided to do a virtual pedicure. not too shabby eh?

Photobucket

anyway, those are my feet. i woke up this morning with a bug bite on one of my toes. it is right on my scar and it hurts so bad! and one of my toe nails looks like it is missing but i promise it is there. and yes i have bunions. i have had the ones on the inside of my feet removed but not the outside. i probably won't do it. not worth the pain. i think i have enough metal in my feet for now. anyway, that is my "cute feet" picture for ya. hahahaha.... don't judge. or do.. i was born with crooked toes!

anyway, i just really want to thank everyone again for the sweet comments. i was feeling so down earlier, and immediately felt better after getting that out and receiving many sweet thoughts and prayers. i was able to take a nap and actually get some sleep. it was much needed. you guys are all amazing. i have the greatest family, friends, and blog friends. so thank you. i wanted to post these pictures because sean will be taking the camera tomorrow if he is feeling well enough to go to wyoming. i hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. i am watching the incredibles on abc family right now and will probably watch toy story 2 right after. is anyone else excited for toy story 3?

Michael and Mindy said...

so glad things are going better! so where are all these cute feet pictures? i haven't seen them??

i'm a little grossed out that you have a mac. but i won't hate you for it.

moses is so cute! and getting so big!

if you want to go to cold stone and try that ice cream while sean is gone, call me :)

glad sean is better. maybe he can play some tiger woods xbox and talk trash on michael via a text to me from you or something. that would help, right?

I'm Stacey... said...

I'm glad Sean is doing better. Good thing he has you to take care of him!

Moses is ridiculously cute. I think he may even be cuter than my dog :)

Josh and I are so excited to see Toy Story 3! We are die-hard Pixar fans, and immediately go see whatever new movie they release!

Lindsey said...

so funny how he is laying on his back like that! mine does the same thing sometimes or will get in a totally weird position and I just look at him and wonder how on earth he can be comfortable . . ha ha

kelly ann said...

poor sean. :( that must be an awful thing to go through... i can't imagine. i'm sending lots of prayers and love your way... i hope sean feels better soon and that you both get some rest! <3

and mosey... you're such a cutie.

Rhianne said...

I'm glad that Sean is feeling better, I just read your post before this and was so sad to hear he felt so ill, of course I am sending you all positive thoughts!

I am far too excited about toy story 3, I love Pixar! Is it out there soon? Its not out here until the end of July - I'm not sure I can wait!!

sending lots of love to you, sean and mosey! x

Annie Kennedy said...

Hmm...I apparantly have cute feet. I was praying for someone and when I was finished (our heads were bowed) she exclaimed "Your feet are so cute!" Well, if that's all she got from the prayer... :)

But I'm glad Sean is feeling better. Have a good week! :)

Krissa said...

oh Mosey is so so cute!!!!
I want another puppy...haha...
I think your feet have character! and seriously i was going to ask you the color of nail polish...but i guess i cant find that color anywhere...haha...pretty nice virtual pedicure...haha
oh i am so so excited for Toy Story 3! so excited!!!!

so glad Sean is feeling better! prayers are amazing!!!!

happy monday!!!!

Ash said...

I'm so happy to hear that your hubby is doing better! It's so difficult to watch someone you love go through so much pain and not know/feel like you can do anything for them. He's so lucky to have such a wonderful wife!

Jennifer said...

I'm so excited for Toy Story 3. Lucky for me I have a 3 year old who's super hyped to see it so I can use her as an excuse.

the hopkins said...

Oh, you just have the cutest little puppy ever :) I seriously want to pick him up and squeeze him! And touch his soft ears and big puppy paws. He's getting so big.
I'm glad Sean is feeling a little better. I felt so bad when I was reading your post below. I could feel your ache, and worry, and stress. Poor Sean, what a pain. There are so many times I can't help but think life would be so much easier if we didn't have to worry about our bodies and medical stuff! But, on a positive note I can tell it's bringing you two even closer, and it seems like your love is growing deeper. Anyway, I hope things are going okay Chloe! We'll keep him in our prayers too. Love you!

lydia. said...

okay, you are probably not going to believe me, but we have the EXACT SAME FEET. not like, the scars and stuff. (that would be weird.) but the shape.
like all of my toes are ridiculously long, except for my tiny pinky toe. which also curls in. SO CUTE, RIGHT? :)

swarley sleeps like that, too! only she does it every time she sleeps. we cannot get over how funny it is. it's just so adorable.
love puppies.

xo!

Becca said...

So glad Sean is feeling better! And that you are doing better, too! Mosey is getting to be a huge, big dog instead of a little puppy...wow.
And Chloe, ha ha ha. I love your feet-picture. My feet are so hideous, and I try not to be bugged by that, because at least they're taking me places, right? But you're brave to actually photograph yours. Ha ha.

Chris and Mari Spiker said...

Awww sad Surgery feet! We are twiners. xoxo

samnhal said...

That's so awful that he was feeling so bad, I'm glad that he started feeling better. Your puppy is so cute, it's so funny the positions that they lay in. They have frog legs sometimes.

my name is lauren. said...

ummmm....

i kind of miss you like crazy! i've been the worst blog friend ever and i have an entire folder in my gmail filled with e-mails i've yet to respond to...including yours from forever ago! ugh! i feel like i keep apologizing about this, but i just wish i was better at reading blogs lately.

i vote for a skype date again sometime. this week is busy, but maybe next week? let me know what you think. i miss me some chloe!

p.s. hope sean is feeling better and i can't believe how big moses is getting!

love you girl!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

So glad to hear that Sean is feeling better! I was thinking about both of you (and Moses, of course).

And thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog =-) You're awesome.

grant + brittany said...

I'm happy to hear he is doing better. I just sent you an email. Moses is such a cutie. And for your toes? I love you chloe. I can't believe all the foot problems you've had to deal with! you are such a good sport. love the barbie pink nail polish, i went through a phase were that's all i wanted and your making me want to do it again.

love ya! miss you! i love incredibles by the way. the other day i watched fox & the hound and it was so dang cute. copper just melts my heart.

Cailie said...

I'm so glad your hubby is feeling better! It always stretches me when mine is sick and I have to work on being paitent and compassionate which arn't my strengths at all.
You puppy is getting so big! I wish they could just be frozen to stay little sometimes! I love that you posted your feet picture! My friend was born with her backwards so she's had a ton of surgeries and they're really tiny and curve in. Have a great day!

S and O said...

awwwww what a cute puppy :)
so sweet!

I'm glad to hear that Sean is feeling better!

knz said...

Oh my gosh mosey is SOOOOOO cute!!!! I'm glad Sean started to feel a little better and I really like your virtual pedicure and I think the surgery scars are pretty rad.

kaysi fox said...

chloeeeee, i am SO SO SOOOO happy he is doing better!! that is the worst when youre hubby is sick!! :( i actually use a canon 7d for my pictures, but some of them are either from my blackberry or random ghetto cameras we have around the house. like the last post i just did, the flash is way too bright on that camera and it washes everyone out! haha. anyways, i am totally excited to see toy story 3 too!!!! that is one movie my entire family just LOVES!!!! :)

Michael and Mindy said...

i was only kind of kidding about the mac. i just can't use them and can't ever figure out what i'm doing on them. so they drive me crazy. but you can use whatever you want!

serious about the ice cream. i am totally free these days!

i had something else to say here, but i've course i already forgot. i'm a ditz. or is it dits? whatever.

Elise Halladay said...

I'm glad that Sean is feeling better. I hate it when people are down and not feeling well. I hate the feeling of helplessness (Is that a word???) I do have some awesome soup recipes though if you are interested. I will email them to you if you want :) Also, I had foot surgery too. And it is one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. So I don't blame you at all for not wanting to do that! Hope Sean gets better soon. Your puppy Mosey is so adorable

justinee said...

you are so funny. oh and i love your puppy, i want one so bad.

{Jesica Huffaker} said...

Sorry you guys had a rough weekend. Your poor hubby. Poor you! Wish I could have helped more. You did good though. Much better than I would have done!

Caroline said...

Oh so sorry about the rough weekend. You, Sean and Moses are in my prayers!!! Sending you a hug and much much love sweet lady. I can't believe how big Moses is getting and the pictures of him sleeping are too cute!!! XO

Emily said...

Holy Ca-Moly, Moses got huge! His sleeping positions are hilarious, so cute.

David and Shalynna said...

Just got caught up on your blog. Sorry for what you guys have had to go through! I'm glad Sean is doing better and if he did end up going to Wyoming, I hope that it went well for him. Your stories of Moses are hilarious. I love that he thinks he's a human and lays on his back. And your little captions on your feet picture were just as funny. If you took all of those little notes away it would have looked like any other cute feet picture! You remind me of my sister. She hates her feet and always points out random bumps and "flaws". One thing you and I do share- the second toe is same length or longer than the first. That I DO hate! Luckily I just bought a bunch of nail polish from the Beauty Supply store, so that makes me hate that long second toe a little less. Go treat yourself to a bunch of new nail polish colors. You deserve it for all the surgery and pain you've had to go through because of your feet. Although, I do like your virtual pedicure. The heart was a great touch!

Amy said...

Sean is a freakin trooper! I'm glad he is feeling a little better! Poor guy. Sounds like you helped him in the way he needed : ) Moses is getting so big!

Glad to read that Sean is feeling better..... and Mosey is so cute. :)
