{1 Year & My Furry Babies}

It is so hard to believe that this photo was taken a year ago yesterday (9/19/2011).That day started a new chapter for the Burtch Family.  It was scary, exciting, happy and sad all at the same time.  Since that day, God has blessed us in ways we never imagined.  I know that Kevin and I made the right decision in moving back to GA.  We have been challenged, and had to fight some pretty HUGE battles, but our faith has grown and our family is stronger than ever.  I am so very excited about our future here, but am very content with my life now.  We are where we are supposed to be.

On to my furry babies.....

I happen to be one of "those people" who believe that a house is not a home unless you have a few 4 legged creatures running around.  A lot of people don't understand that frame of mind, but I just adore animals and would have a menagerie if my husband would let me.  He pretends that he "tolerates" them, but he did recently come home with baby chickens in tow!  Regardless of his opinions, Kevin allows me to have my pets, because he knows they make me happy.  He's a good man!
That being said, my pups are quite elusive when it comes to the camera.  Frankie is my old lady...She's 7, a Hurricane Katrina rescue puppy, who loves tennis balls and stealing human food from the boys at dinner time.  She has always been a handful, but has turned out to be the best dog EVER (think Marley & Me).  As far as photos go, she is SO over you can tell from the look in her eyes in the first image below.

Bella is my sweet 2 year old German Shepherd.  She annoys the mess out of everyone else that walks in the door with her puppy energy, but will calm down long enough to climb onto the bed at night and pretend she's a (90 lb) lap dog.  She has a good heart, loves getting her sister (Frankie) wound up in the backyard, rarely ever gets to eat her treats because she doesn't want to fight with Frankie for them, and she always sits at my feet when I edit (imagine her big ole self crammed under an Ikea's funny).  I have virtually no photos of her, except for shots taken at a distance. The camera scares her...she literally freaks out when she sees me with it.  I have never even had a toddler react that way to my camera!!

Shots like the ones below are few and far between, so I wanted to make sure and document them.  The girls were sleepy and both climbed onto the bed in my office for a nap, while I was editing.  I, with the help of my trusty sidekick Hayden, was able to get some great photos of them both. I think they were just too tired and lazy to stop me!
