Ultimate Blog Party... Let's party like it's errr 2010

Aloha... O-si-yo... Dobrý den... Guten Tag... Haileo... and

Hello to everyone visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom!
Ultimate Blog Party 2010
I am a tad late in joining the party this week; which in real life would never happen but here in the bloggy world I tend to get lost reading blogs... Shame on me I know... Going to keep this short so everyone can keep the party moving and visit all the wonderful other blogs joining in this year.

Brooke... that's me... *waves*  I am a Jill of all trades.. Before I became a wife and mother I held many other job titles. I've trained dolphins, tigers, dogs......done property management, marine mammal rescue, and everything in-between. Then when I wasn't looking I found DH and changed my title to SAHM. Which I guess isn't much different than what I was doing before.. LOL

Daddy Shenanigans is referred to as DH here on the blog. The two of us grew up in the same state but it took moving to Hawaii before we found each other.

Wee Man is our almost 6 year old son. He didn't start talking until he was 3 1/2 years old but is now at the top of his class. Yes... I know he is only in Kindergarten but ooo you should listen to the teach and staff at the school praise him (and not just because)... Although that does not mean he listens to anyone and is quite a handful. I love him even in those moments when he questions everything and everyone. I swear he is already a teenager. ov vey.

Lil Kiwi is just shy of turning 2 this year. Sugar, spice and almost everything nice... Before she was born we already knew that she had a few medical issues but the list grows with each doctor visit... Currently she has six different specialist that see her on a regular basis... Nothing slows her down though... She is just as active as other kids her age and you would never know there was anything wrong with her... I melt when she smiles.

Of course, in this family the animals are included. Black Dog was a rescue from Hawaii and is without a doubt the best dog I have ever known. He turned nine this year and has more airline miles than a lot of people I know.

Fawn Dog is the residence couch potato even though the dogs are not actually allowed on them. She was born in Ireland and then had a racing career here in the US for a few years. We were lucky enough to rescue her after her retirement and enjoy her crazy zooomies and helicoptering...

The short and sweet of it is that this is the Shenanigans blog. It has photos, the struggles and joys of being a parent, photos, story of Lil Kiwi's medical journey, giveaways, book reviews, rants, ramblings (a few too many) and did I mention photos... Okay it actually is more than that but trying to keep this short remember.. *laughing*

I hope you will come back and visit from time to time. OH and if you do please let me know and I will follow you back to your blog.

Aye yes the goodie bags at the end of the party... If I'm LUCKY I hope to see these three items in my bag...
Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025 (but I think everyone does), INTL 14S7 Blog makeover and the USC 3 – $50 Target Gift Card....

Otherwise finding any of these would be great too... (in no particular order) US76,US105, USC 8, USC 15, US112, USC 37, USC 57, USC 44, USC 39, USC 40, USC 36, USC 25, US107, US87, US77, US73, US74, US52, US32, US31, and US2... oh and any that deal with blog makeover (for blogger)....
