We were finally able to pick up our puppy on Thursday.He was totally mellow the whole 30+ minute ride home and just sat quietly on Rachael's lap the whole time.There was so much for Caspian to explore.He likes his dog houseand loves to lie down under the cedars.Being only 7 weeks old he still needs lots of sleep.The girls slept in the garage with Caspian last night. I don't think anyone got very much sleep.

Puppy Love

Rachael's dream is finally coming true: we're getting a puppy!Meet Caspian. He's a five week old Golden Retriever. It was hard to choose one puppy they were all so cute!Even Kaitlyn, who isn't much of a dog person, fell in love.He was born into a family with lots of kids - even a one year old boy who picks him up and pulls his tail and the puppies don't mind, so I know Caspian will be good with Jaden.Because he's only 5 weeks old we had to leave him behind until he gets his shots at 7 weeks. He'll be ready to come home after Aug 18th. It was hard to say goodbye.

One Smart Little Boy

On Tuesday we got some presents from Auntie Kendra who just returned from Disney World. She got Jaden (who is approaching 18 months) a t-shirt and I said, "Look, Jaden, there's Mickey Mouse on your shirt." And that's about all I've mentioned to him about who Mickey Mouse is.So today he was wearing the shirt again while we were making cake (and using our mother-daughters matching Minnie Mouse aprons) and I put some of our new Disney World sprinkles on the cake. I said, "Look at that, there's Mickey Mouse head sprinkles!" And Jaden pulled on his shirt and pointed to Mickey Mouse! Now that's one smart little boy!
