85% of My Time
The day after Christmas we visited to local dog shelter to get a feel for how our family would respond to having a pet.  After spending time with a different pup than pictured above, we spent time with this sweet little girl, Isabel.  I think my husband fell in love with her from the first paw shake.  After much (or just staring at each other) debate, she came home with us.  Talk about impulse.  The kids love her, as do I, kind of.  She is actually a really good girl.  She now only jumps on the bed when my husbands alarm goes off.  This negates the need for a snooze button, pro!  She sleeps about 85% of the day, the other is spent chasing the kids around hence the need for sleep.  She is so gentle when the kids want to love on her. She is already mostly trained!  Potty, check, sit, check, stay, check, down, check, off (esp. my bed) mucho defiance.  I like that she keeps my feet warm under the table!  I am not sure but I think we all have fallen in love.

Back in the Swing of Things...

All around the table

Working on our letter recognition
This one thought it was funny to make silly words

Starting the day right
 After a long break, we are getting back into the swing of things.  Our break was so nice.  It felt great to just relax at home, spending quality time with the family.  Of course our families back home were missed, but we truly enjoyed time with our family away from family.  Mondays are usually more difficult but this last Monday went quite smooth.  Now on Thursday, things are moving quite nicely.  I am trying to get the twins used to doing something at the table with us.  Boggle Jr. has been a great addition and has made me realize that they know more than I give them credit for.  We have had so much to be Thankful for. I am looking forward to the growth our family will go through in 2012. God has blessed our family!  Happy new yeaR!
