The Lucy

You knew we could not wait until spring. We wanted to wait, really, we did. But our house was just TOO lonely. Eleven years ago I went "shopping" at the pound and came home with our first baby dog, Molly.
While Jeff was out of town (yes, I had his blessing) I took the kids and we went "shopping" out at Halfway Home Pet Adoptions and came home with this giant bundle o' love.

Lucy is about the laziest one-year-old dog you can imagine. She sleeps all the time. She occasionally tries to do puppyish things like stealing shoes and socks to chew on. But she quickly loses interest and decides that her time is better spent in more leisurely pursuits.

When I cannot find her, I can almost certainly go back to my bedroom and find her with the blankets under her, piled high for her very own "princess bed." She cuddles like nobody's business, and Connor loves that about her.

She has made herself right at home and we are thrilled to say she's a keeper.

From Grant

So, yes, I have become a serious blog-slacker. One would think that my newfound unemployed status would lend me all sorts of time for my blogging. Alas, this has not been true. BUT, I promise to keep trying, so please keep checking.

Last night, we were watching the movie Monsters, Inc. with the boys. Grant had not ever seen it, and had several questions while we were watching. Near the end, when Sully has to shred Boo's door, we were all sad. We asked Grant if he was sad that Boo and Sully would not get to see each other again.
His reply: "No, they will get to see each other again next time I watch this movie!"

I have very practical-minded children, don't I?
