A new member of the family...

Announcing: COTTON

Call us crazy, but we got a puppy!
He is an English Creme Golden Retriever. He is 8 weeks old.
We've had him in our home almost two weeks.
He is such a cute little puppy! (And it's a good thing because that helps us be patient with him!)

This is Audrey with Cotton when he was only 3 weeks old.

Morning, Can we be friends?

Dear Morning,

Can we be friends again?

It's silly, but when I see you coming I cover my head and pretend I don't know you. I'm sorry to say that when you come to my door I groan a little, let you in begrudgingly and then-as you know-I haven't welcomed you with hospitality.

It's not you it's me.

You are still more beautiful than ever. You've been happy to see me and listened as good as always. Maybe you've been a little cold, no doubt in response to my distant behavior.

I hope you'll forgive me.

Remember the good times? It used to be that there wasn't enough time for us--just you and me. We used to inspire and encourage each other. My day is always happier when I visit with you.

Can we be friends again? Like old times?


6 months old!

Count the rolls, baby!

(Remember, he was born on the fourth of July)
