Our New Puppy...




Today was the day! The kids were all awake, morning chores done, and ready to get their puppy by 6:45 am. Don't tell them, but mom and dad were almost as excited as they were to have him come home. It seemed to take forever for time to pass, but departure time finally arrived. Brad, Nolan, and Garrett went to pick Elvis up from the breeder. The other kids watched the clock and the door. There was lots of noise and chaos when Elvis finally arrived. He has been doing so well all day. The kids tend to get into many arguments about whose turn it is to hold and play with him(bet ya it won't take 2 days for the new to wear off :)! ). Nolan will be his primary care taker, and Elvis seems fairly close to him already(of course, Nate, our resident dog "whisperer" has already succeeded in getting the pup to bond with him). Nolan will have to use that to his benefit... puppy making messes... get Nate.

BREAKING NEWS on our house:

We received an offer and made our counter offer yesterday. The news today is that they have accepted the counter offer. We haven't officially signed off on it yet, but we feel that this is answered prayer. So, we pray that all the other details(ie., appraisal,inspections, and such) will go just as smoothly. God is in control...

KIM!!!! First of all, praise the Lord for the wonderful news on your house! I am so thrilled for you.

& Second, those are just the sweetest little puppy pics I've seen! Makes us even more anxious to bring our Wrigley home! Maybe we'll get 3 week old pics this weekend, . . . Sigh.

Congratulations on the house AND Elvis!

OHHH....how precious....one we get Lulu home and settled we (I) want to get the kids a dog. Max is scared of most animals, mostly large animals but loves them and is very brave from afar. I thought if we got one as a pup he won't be scared and can get use to it as it grows.

I think you picked the perfect name...ELVIS....too too CUTE!!!

Have a great weekend,
