~So guess what we did today? We met this fun girl and had pictures taken! I can't wait to see them. We went to a pretty little park downtown and spent about 1 1/2 hr taking pictures. It was really cold for most of the time so there were a lot with coats and scarves. It was fun to walk around and find neat places to take pics. Heather has a great eye, which we already knew. Hopefully we gave her enough to work with. ha! It gets a little difficult with 2 kids to corral and getting everyone looking at the same time and Hayes to not give us the cheesy 3 yr old smile. She kept saying "Hayes, find your happy place!" And when the happy place was no longer attainable, we knew we were finished!

~I wonder what the record is for the longest amount of time EVER taken for a 2nd grader to write sentences with 16 spelling words?

~What is the latest I can drink Dr. Pepper without also staying up until 1 AM?

~I am SO ready for this election to be over. If only to not have to see ads on TV and to stop getting a zillion calls a day telling me why I should vote for so-and-so. I wish I could just tell them all that I've ALREADY VOTED and you can just leave me alone!

~Nine more spelling words left.

~So, puggle or beagle/terrier mix? Any suggestions?

I can't WAIT to see the pics either!! I was thinking about y'all all morning.

16 spelling words? I think I only had to do 10 with her, so I'm not sure how long 16's gonna take! =)

And, the puggle - my word! I forgot to email you the other night and tell you that it is just TOO CUTE FOR WORDS!!!!

Oh, are you getting a dog???? How exciting!!! I vote for the puggle, but i've got a boston terrier i'll give you (just kidding - my kids would kill me!).
We're going for pics with Heather next Saturday, so if it was hard with two kiddos, just imagine how much fun it'll be with THREE!! Seriously, I can't wait....can't wait to see yours either!

Ooh! I can't wait to see your pictures!

I'm not sure about the cut-off time for Dr Pepper. That's why I changed over to Caffeine Free! As a matter of fact, I'm drinking one right now!

And I am with you about this election! So tired of it all!

Spelling words take FOREVER! Oh I feel your pain!

LOVE Ben! Oh my word!

Oh, I know the pics will be great! I love scarves and all in pictures. It was a cold day though! I thought about you guys too! :)

Here's my 2 cents. Any hint of a beagle in a dog and it will dig! I have a beagle/dachsund mix and she digs like crazy!!!! MAKES ME NUTS! Anyway, she's a great companion for the kids and she's a snuggler, but if the digging would just stop! Vet said it's in the breed. UGH!

My parents had a pug once and there was NO shedding - MAJOR plus in my book! teehee!
Keep us posted.
