So today we were at Wal Mart and someone was giving away free puppies. They were gorgeous half lab half german shorthair 8 week old puppies. There was a chocolate brown female. We took her home. We can't afford her, but it was love at first sight. My first dog was a chocolate lab and she looks a lot like her. Phillip and Selah are elated. We named her Sam Walton - but are calling her Wally most of the time. :)
We lost Jimmy's Uncle Ted unexpectedly this week. We went to the funeral yesterday and really enjoyed a wonderful celebration. Everyone enjoyed retelling is stories and sharing fond memories. We have a large extended family, and even in the saddest of circumstances, we are glad to come together and be with one another. Here are some scrap pages I made on scrapblog and wanted to print out for Aunt Carolyn, but I had multiple printing issues.
so i'm not sure what the propensity for injury selah has is all about. maybe because she has two older brothers. jim spent the night in the er last night with selah getting her laceration glued up. she is an expert ramp jumper with her big wheel - but her expertise failed her and one wheel didn't line up and she rolled off the ramp. she got a lovely gash in the back of her head. but minus the bald spot where they shaved her - there's no lasting damage. will post pics soon....
*Now that I have time - let me splain. Last Friday Steph Flage, Melanie and Lisa took Erin and me on as their personal cause. They volunteered to be our child care solution. We met at Steph's dropped off FOUR very hyper children (three of whom are NOT potty trained). They swam and played and bathed and when Erin and I returned we found four jammied kiddos quietly watching a movie. As soon as we got home they went wild again. What is it about kids being crazy for their moms and great for other people? Mine fell asleep on the way home. Yay! Thanks guys. We got to eat in peace, talk in peace, shop in peace. Whoo hoo.
