This is our dog Buster. He is a miniature schnauzer. He has been a part of our family now for over one year. It has been a big adjustment to have him with us, but we have enjoyed him nonetheless. The kids absolutely love him and he brings me a bit of joy as well, that is when he is not chewing up everything in site and pooping on my floor. My favorite part about having him around is that Miriam seems to always have a friend around. He has licked away her tears and has been a very quite reading partner. She just loves it when he will lay on her while she reads her books at night, and sometimes she will read out loud so he can enjoy the story as well. He is a great friend to our family and I can no longer leave him off my blog.
Born and raised in Idaho, but have spent the last 14 plus years in Utah. Married to Aaron Jardine of Washington since 1998. We have 2 children, Miriam and Daniel, and a dog Buster. I am a graduate of Brigham Young University, which makes me a pretty big Cougars fan. We love movies, reading, and just being together. My obsession is exercise, Miriam's is Webkinz, and Daniel's is Lego Star Wars...which may change soon. Aaron doesn't really have an obsession. He is quite balanced.
