What we've been up to...

 This is Ellie our new puppy!  We got her about 3 weeks ago when she was only 9 weeks old.  She's a doll.  The kids tried to rename her but she wouldn't respond to anything but Ellie (which her family had been calling her)  So we stuck with that.  We met got her from a breeder and met her mom (5 pounds) and dad (3 pounds) so we are thinking she will be between 3-5 pounds fully grown.  She is a sweet heart and gets tons of attention from everyone in the family.  Maybe a little too much from Creed whom Mike has nick named Lennie from Of Mice and Men.

 Mike insists he hates the dog but everynight I catch the two of them cuddling. 
 Lately at night to unwind the 2 older kids have been lying down reading.  Creed is still a terror running around with swords and guns but this is progress.  This is a new stage in my life and for the first time in 7 years I have no more diapers to deal with!  All my kids are past that stage and it feels very liberating! 
 Cole just started reading and is getting really good at it.  He will totally be ready for kindergarten in the fall.
 Ellie's greatest fan
