I’m so excited to be a part of Team Getty. This sweet, sweet baby was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Baby Getty just had her first birthday! I am so excited to be a fighter for this cause. Please think about joining the Team or finding away to support them.

P.S. they have very cute t shirts and bags!

HUME LAKE (Image heavy :)

This past weekend I got to spend with some great women at Hume Lake Christian Camp. It was the first time I had seen snow falling. We all had so much fun! There was ice-skating, delicious food, THE SCREAMER, and great fellowship. I had forgotten the magical element of Hume Lake. Cell phones don’t work, so you are completely cut off from the world. It was great to focus on God and his beautiful creation. I was so blessed by the company of Leslie, Christina, Mel, Toni, and Jessica. Can’t wait till next yearbut I really want to visit again in summer.

Our New Pup Tucker

The story of our “lucky” boy

We adopted this rescue, originally named Lucky, from at Petco. The organization, One More Dog Rescue, is always at that location on Saturdays and we just happened to pop by to see the pups. Steven and I were not planning on getting another dog just yet, but when I saw this sweet sweet Staffordshire Terrier, my heart broke. 

You see…Tucker was rescued from a horrible situation. He was hanging around a warehouse area, where there were several mean individuals. They cut his ears with scissors to make him look mean. They also threw beer cans at him and eventually through a whole tire rim onto his paw. This has caused Tucker to walk with a limp and will always have a disfigured paw. This sweet, sweet boy has seriously brought joy to my heart and has made me so joyful to see him and Gus get along.

We Love Our Little Family!
