Our Furry Babies!

So I've introduced you to Josh, Gavin, & Gage. So let me introduce you to the rest of the family!





♥Roxie AKA Raw-wie


Roxie is Josh's baby! She was the girl in his life before I came into the picture! She is such a good dog, Josh has her very well trained! She loves Gavin and Gage! Gavin adored her and called her Raw-wie! She will always be known as Raw-wie! She has such a personality! She's hilarious and swears shes a lap dog!








♥GUCCI♥
Gucci is my baby! What gave it away? Lol!
Josh got Gucci for me a couple months ago! He is a 9 month old AKC papered Yorkie! What I've always wanted! (Yes my husband spoils me!) Gucci is very good with Gage! When Gage is asleep on the couch Gucci lays at his feet! It'll be great for them to grow up together! Gucci is a lil crazy but I'm working on training him!











Gucci & Roxie get along famously! A lil too well some times! They drive me nuts at times playing constantly! Gucci swears he's as big as Roxie even though Roxie tramples him from time to time! Our home would not be the same with out them!♥

Neverending Schedule Change!

So we were unable to go to our counseling appointment today! Josh was called in so it is now re scheduled For September 30th! Our schedule is always getting messed up! Some days I am so thankful for the Army and what they did for us when Gavin passed away and other days I'd like to give the Commander a piece of my mind! Josh was supposed to be off this weekend and I was so looking forward to it but now he's working! Go figure! I'll be keeping myself busy though working on the baby shower I'm throwing for my cousin! She's having a girl so I get to play with pink! Definitely a new world for me! I'll be posting pictures as I go! So I think I'm finally tired enough to fall asleep finally so here goes nothing!

Another Late Night!

So I'm awake, as usual! I can't seem to sleep at night to save my life! Josh and I are going to see a counselor today at 3pm to help with losing Gavin! I know I need to go but of course I'm a lil sceptical! I have fallen into a bit of a depression, it only makes since, I lost a huge part of me! There's just some broken things that can't be fixed! I know it will help me though at least a lil! We will see how it goes!

Gavin's Place!


So most of you know that my son Gavin Marshall Messier passed away recently! The gal involved has started a project back in Virginia in honor of Gavin! This is the proposal that she sent to the Sargent Major! The proposal has been accepted and plans are being made to start construction! I am so truly touched by this! Check it out! Love ya guys!

Gavin's Place Project
Objective: To build a safe fenced area for children to ride bikes and power wheels, to run and play, and to honor the memory of a special little boy.
Statement: We believe Pinnacle is doing a wonderful job managing and building our communities. However, a young boy named Gavin Pyatt was killed Tuesday by a truck in an alleyway here in Herryford Village. The concern of parents is that though we have wonderful small playgrounds here in Herryford, there is no suitable place for our children to ride bikes and powerwheels, or to run free and play. As a result, parents and children are congregating in the alleyways as an alternative to the small and unfenced front yards. Once viewed as a safer alternative to playing in the street, we now know that the alleys are just as risky as the main roads. Many parents in these homes have multiple children. Even under the closest supervision, it is very challenging to protect children from the danger of the roads and cars. Upon review of the following points, we believe that you will agree with us that building a large fenced play area would not only be safer for our military children, but protect the Pinnacle Company and the military as well.
Proposal: We are proposing that Pinnacle and the United States Military build a fenced play area on the open grass expanse in Herryford Village and call it Gavin's Place. The expense for this project would be minimal and the benefits would be many, including the following:
Building a gated play area gives our children a place to ride powerwheels and bikes and play in a safe area without the risk of falling in the streets and alleys or being struck by a car.
It provides a safe place for military families to congregate and socialize, which is especially important for the lonely and sometimes overwhelmed spouses of deployed troops.
It encourages healthy exercise for children such as bike riding, running etc.
It demonstrates that Pinnacle and the United States of America have a commitment to taking all necessary steps to protect the children of the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting the American people and their way of life.
It demonstrates a commitment to safety and reduces the substantial risk of liability to the Military and/or Pinnacle in the event something like this should happen again and the parents proceed with a lawsuit.
It ensures that something positive and good will come out of a needless tragedy and honors the memory of a wonderful little boy.
Contact Information: Thank you for your support of our military families. Please contact the following Herryford Village parents as we work together to ensure a safe community for the children of our military families:

My Cause!

I'm starting an awareness group for parents and toddlers who have gone through what my Lil Gavin and I went through! The reality is that more and more toddlers are being run over by vehicles and it's too late to do anything after you've lost your baby! So in loving memory of my beautiful Boy Gavin I am starting an awareness/support group! Now it's just in the beginning stages! I have to figure out all the exacts and I want to come up with a cute, catchy, but meaningful name! And then I'll go from there! There's so much parents need to know to keep there babies safe! I thought my Gavin was safe until I was well educated! It's too late for me to save my baby but it's not too late to save others!

Remember Our Babies!




I started doing this Last year in honor of my friend Kalle! This year I will still be lighting a candle in honor of her Baby and in honor of my Gavin! Also in honor of my friend Staceie! If you choose to light a candle in honor of my Son please take a picture and send it to my email mrs_jpyatt@yahoo.com it is something I would like to scrapbook!

Melt Down!

I always say that Gavin never prepared me for Gage! They are complete day and night! Gage is a very sweet baby but he is very demanding! He fights me on everything! Lately he throws these killer fits! Hysterically screaming and flailing his arms! I have to keep his nails trimmed all of the time cause he will grab me and pinch me! The other day I thought he actually took a chunk out of my arm! Hell grab my hair and pull it taking chunks at a time! Tonight he screamed for at least a good hour if not more! I had to hold him snugly and hold his arms down at the same time cause I'm so afraid he is going to hurt himself! I don't understand these melt downs that he has! He's been fed, changed, given a Bink, loved, kissed, hugged, burped...absolutely everything I can think of! I think I'm gonna schedule an appointment with his doctor! I've never seen a baby do the things that he does during these melt downs! Not one as young as him! I love him very much and will sit with him through these as long as it takes! I just wonder if there is something else behind this!
