Our Christmas Present

I did it. I'm in the Christmas spirit now... Here are the lights Bill put up. Aren't they lovely?

It does help to come home to these every day. And look - we even got snow!

Then, we went to look at these. Can you believe it?

We felt it was time to get a dog now while we still have Annie - so she can teach her good doggie lessons. So, we just went to look (yeah right). Ten puppies! Can you even stand it?

Bill picked his girl - they called her Cici. They said she was very sweet and the most athletic.

I was learning about how to give shots... But, I think I'll find a friend willing to help. Neither Bill or I think we can do it!

We stopped at Lynn's house on the way home. Doesn't she look cute posing by her tree?

Her name is Libby. This was after bath - which she did NOT like by the way.
Annie already showing her the ropes on going outside to "potty". Good thing these pups were used to being outside. Training a puppy when there is snow on the ground is not exactly what I had in mind.

Molli brought the kids by when she heard the news. She just told them they were coming to Uncle Bill's and Aunt Courtney's to see something - they were so excited to find out what the surprise was. But, I think Maggie was a little disappointed when she was leaving empty-handed - she kept saying, "But, where's my present?" Tanner just kept saying, "But, where did you get the puppy?" and "I didn't see this dog the last time I was here."
Libby slept in the crate last night in the family room and it was a looooong night of puppy yelps and cries. Oh my goodness. We think we'll put the kennel in the bonus room tonight instead - hopefully making it a little easier to sleep.
So far, she's been a good girl. No accidents and she is pretty mellow. Please God, let this continue! More to come...
