But I got a few of him and a few of Kate and a video. Even though this post is titled Jakob I will post Kate here.. Please dont judge my laziness... ;)
Of late I have been listening to a lot of Christian music. For many reasons aside from the obvious reason, my faith, I also listen because its just great, happy, inspirational music. Now this music isnt your boring church music. No the Christian music genre is like no other in that it encompasses all kinds of genres. There is hip hop, Rock, Gospel, R&B, Country, Soul, Heavy Metal, Folk, bluegrass and so on.
The bands I have been listening to lately are Kutless, Jeremy Camp, Tobymac, Seventh day slumber, Brandon Heath, Lincoln Brewster.
So I am going to post some youtube videos just to give you an overview of what I am listening to.
Let me know what you think. I am a music lover and if you have any new music pass it on.. I would love to hear it.
Seventh Day Slumber
*probably my number 1 right now*
Lincoln Brewster *phenom on the guitar.. and I love when our church plays this song because Dustin can jam on the drums.. :D
So thats what I am listening to lately. I dont listen strickly to any certain type. I love all music and the way it makes me feel.
I still listen to my staple groups.. The beatles, Pink Floyd, The red hot chili peppers, Pearl Jam, Metallica and so on.
I hope you guys have liked some of the music I have posted..and if not thats ok to. Music is universal and there isnt a wrong or right kind.
Have a fabulous Monday!!

Ike the hurricane came through on Saturday morning with a fierceness. He made his presence known to all.
Friday night we enjoyed the "nice" weather at our new friends house. They live 4 houses down and we like to hang out in the driveway usually on the weekends.
Around 10pm the winds started picking up so Dustin and I made our way back home. We then passed smooth out on the couch watching the coverage and waiting for landfall!
Kate and Jakob didnt get the memo about the sleep over and how it worked.. so they stayed up and ran around and laughed while Dustin and I squawked at them to "settle down" and "Get to sleep"
Finally at 3:30 we got them to sleep. Thats also when the electricity went out..
At 6 I woke up to some CRAZY wind sounds. I looked outside and could see nothing but sideways rain and trees.

When Katharine was born Mrs Renee(Brother in laws mother) gave us a beautiful Feltman bro. dress for Kate. Now if any of you are like me.. the name Feltman bros would not ring a bell. Well those that arent in the know I will tell you. Feltman Bros is clothing maker that makes high end dresses, infant clothing and christening gowns. The dress that Mrs Renee got Katharine is this beautiful smocked dresss with pink embrodery.
The only thing is... it is a size 2t. So I had to wait two years before she could wear it!! Plus where is she going to wear a solid white fancy dress to without ruining it. Though it is still a little big, I have always thought that on Katharines birthday I would take her picture in that dress.. So here it is:
You might be asking.. "Now Tasha, such a beautiful dress, why on earth would you put sunglasses on her"
Well that was Kates special touch. You see she wears those sunglasses everywhere, everyday. I love them.. it is what makes her unique.
So there you have it.. Check back often for more pics and updates!!
Hopefully the Hurricane doesnt ruin our birthday party plans this weekend!
Katherine was my Great gramma (Nana) who adored me and I felt the same for her. She passed when I was 10.
Happy 2nd Birthday beautiful baby girl.. Mommy loves you!!

This includes going to the dentist to fix the rotting wisdom teeth(Gross I know.. I am embarrassed dont worry) And also my eyes.
I have been having horrible headaches here lately I figured it was time to get my eyes checked.
The last time I graced the presence of an Optometrist was 7 years ago. We ended up paying 700 dollars out of pocket for glasses for Dustin and myself.. so this may have been a deterrent who knows. But we have great eye insurance now so I decided to use it. Since Dustin just got contacts and loves them..I was set on going in and getting my eyes examined and having a prescription for my new contacts. How exciting!!
Well turns out its not that easy for me. :(
I went in to explain my vision issues and went through all the test.. you know the ones...
They put that great View master over your eyes and proceed to change the lenses asking,
"Better or worse.. ok better or worse"
Turns out..they were all worse for me.
I have a condition(i cant remember the name of it) but the best we to describe it is thinking like a Camera focus.
If you have a camera that has auto focus then it does the focusing for you..but my Auto focus on my eyes is broken so it is constantly zooming in and out to try to focus. This is making my eye muscles very tense and tired. So that is why I get headaches.
GLASSES. Bifocals actually. They have to strengthen that muscle before they can even figure out what my Vision is. Because everything I see is blurry due to my eyes not being able to focus. So the prescription is wear glasses for 6-12 months to strengthen and train that muscle and then we will see about contacts..
Well I really wasnt at all shocked by this because turns out I have had this problem since I was around 12 years old. Thats when I got my first pair of Progressive lenses. I didnt wear them then or do my eye exercises so over the years it has gotten way worse.
My fault no doubt. But I am older and wiser now and dont really care what I look like or impressing people so I promise I am going to wear my glasses. Scouts honor!
Next appointment.. Dentist.. Not looking forward to that..
We packed up the essentials.. I had done my research so I knew there was a Pond for the dogs there and they also had doggie showers so we brought a towel and doggie shampoo and brush.
He had never been around such a wide variety of dog or in a group of more than his 9 litter mates.
We took him on the little agility course they had and he did fantastic like he had been doing it for years.. and tried to get him to go into the Bone shaped pool but he was not interested.
Now as you might remember I said that we took the camera? Well in true Dustin fashion, he did remember to bring the camera.. but he forgot it in the car..lol. So we did not get any pictures of Kaisers first Bark park experience but you better believe we will get pics of it next time.. But here is a current Kaiser pics to hold you over.. He is such a good boy!! I love him..
