Meet Lincoln!

Meet our new family member!  The kids have always wanted a dog, and so this year's Christmas present is - Lincoln!  
We adopted him from a dog rescue organization.  They estimate he is about a year old.  He and his two siblings were found wandering by the side of the road in Ohio.  They went to a pound there, and the other two were adopted.  Lincoln was scheduled to be euthanized, but happily was rescued before that happened!
He spent a couple weeks at a foster home here in London, got all his shots, was micro-chipped, and now he lives with us!
The kids are so happy - I think he will be a very spoiled puppy for the first little while anyway.

Tim says his childhood is now complete!

He's just the perfect size 

Natalie is in love

Tired after today's excitement..
Feel free to come by and meet him anytime!

Don't Worry.... Be Happy....

Tim asked for new "lounge" pants.  His are all too short... hmmmm.  Well, I could go shopping, but the store-bought ones are all too short too. Sound familiar, Stu?
Time to dust off the old sewing machine, and a trip to Lens Mill Store.  Since Deanna was home sick today, I thought it was a good project for the day.
I saw this fabric and had to get it:
 And something a little more masculine:

Family Fotos

Since our last family pictures were taken in 2008, we thought perhaps it was time for an update...
A talented young lady from our church took these.
It's possible one of them will be on our Christmas card this year.

YES, Tim is smiling.  He insists he is smiling.  Honest.

In the soybean field.  Sorry, Mr. Farmer, for the beans we trampled

Tim's happier now, I guess.  

I thought this was a cool shot..
