What we've been up to...

Well, it's been a busy month. We've had two big events.

The first happened earlier in the month, and was so emotional for me. I know Elizabeth is getting older and growing up. I only have a few months with her before she starts school. AGGHHH!!! But I just wasn't ready for this:



I can't believe she lost her first tooth! As I write this the one next to it is already loose, and will probably fall out in the next week or two. The best part was how it came out. I didn't think it was very close, so one night I was helping her brush her teeth. I was brushing like normal, when she said "Ow!" and closed her mouth. She stuck her tounge out and on her tounge sat her tooth! It was great because I didn't want to force her to pull it, and she was a little nervous about the whole idea.

I forget how tiny they are.

Our second big event, is one we are still adjusting to. We got a puppy! He is about 4 months old and he is half lab half sharpei. We found him through a friend at church who works at a vet's office. He was a stray brought in , and no one ever claimed him. So instead of sending him to the animal shelter, he came to live with us!

His name is Samsonite Christmas Brown. (A reference to Dumb & Dumber. I was way off!) We call him Samson. Who knows how big he will get, but he is already proving to be a quick learner. Now we can hardly wait for our fence to get installed so we can run free with him in the backyard!


  • Love Elizabeth's smile in the "after" picture!

  • Oh Gage will be so jealous when I tell him Elizabeth got a puppy, maybe I won't do that?! He keeps asking when he gets a pet and we tell him when we find our new house he can start with a fish. And yay - a member of your family that we get to see picture of on the blog;) Hope you guys are doing great!

  • Hooray for the picture of Samsonite! He's cute!

    And I'm glad the tooth came out so gently. Hopefully they'll all be that easy...
