Puppy Love Pictures

We are loving our puppy Ranger.
He has been a delight to add to our lives and we are so glad to have him. Even hearing Lucy shriek, "Ranger! Ranger! Ranger!" about 700 times a day is cute...sometimes.

He is adorable and funny and he has even given new life to Slappy. She steals all of his toys-with a growl and a bark. It turns out our old wiener dog is a bit of a bully. Who knew?

He extremely talented at fetching and retrieving and biting. He bit Matt's ear and drew blood this week and has managed to decimate a cell phone and ipod charging cord all in the same day.

But we love him. He is so definitely ours and we are smitten.
How could you not love something as cute as him?

When I was little, my mom braided my hair on a daily basis. 
She would braid my hair so tightly, that it would curl on the ends like Pippi Longstocking. 

One day, my kindergarten teacher asked me how she got my hair to do that. 
I told her, "My mommy wakes me up at 5am, braids my hair and hangs me in the closet by my hair until it is time to go to school."
She called my mom that afternoon to ask her if it was true. 
Or my teacher was a complete idiot. 

I have bred a child cut from the same cloth.

See the resemblance? 
Check out my awesome kindergarten eyebrows. 
It's no wonder I have a bi-weekly waxing appointment.

Green Eggs and Ham

 I've always shared my birthday with Dr. Seuss.
I am very okay with this since it makes the day much like Halloween in elementary school but with a central theme.
Nerdy much?
Asher has been sick all weekend and today was the first day he got to go back to school.
Think he was excited about it being Dr. Seuss's birthday? 

And with it being my birthday: We wouldn't be able to celebrate without something electronic coming into my life:

And I love it. 
So so much.
It completely lives up to the hype. 

Believe it.
