Finally getting there . . .

Ha! "Finally getting there . . . " should have been the title for my marathon post a while back :).
Well, sit back with a warm cup of joe - because here are a lot of updates!!!!
(comments for each picture are right above the pictures)

Here is a great picture of me and my Grandmother! She is such a beautiful and strong lady . . . I love to see her. This was us at Thanksgiving.

Here is Tobi on The Rope Swing at my Mom's house. She and my dad put it up in time for the grandkids to use on Thanksgiving. They loved it. Score 1 for Grandma!

This year we got a very small tree for the girl's room. They picked out the ornaments, tree skirt, and ribbon - super cute!!! All of the presents they are getting from friends at school are going under this tree and they are very excited to know that they do not have to wait for mom and dad on Christmas morning to open the presents under this tree!!!

This is just a picture of a random morning at our house. Zoe was watching Noggin here while I was getting dressed before school/work. Belle loves her Zoraster!!!

A few days later than I would have liked but here is a picture of Tobi at her very first Christmas Program. Believe it or not, we had great seats . . . we just had no idea that our Tobers would be very front and center.
I will try to explain where she is standing: Look at the very first row of kids you can see, on the far left side . . . she is standing in between the two heads.

And finally: meet JAS (short for Jasmine) . . . She is Belle's new friend!!!!!!!!

Jas is 5 weeks old. Talk about cute!!! When she gets nervous she wraps her paws around our fingers (look at how she is holding on to Bryan in the next picture).
Belle thinks she is a great new chew toy and wants to bat her around.
We are working on "Gentle" and "No bite" with Belle.
She is the cutest little chunkers ever.
I love these dogs so much we may need 2 more!!!! but don't tell B I said that!!!!

Here is the best picture we were able to get of the two of them together.
Our pup-pup, Belle, is now 5 months old this Friday.
Lily (our cat) is not impressed.

Wow, Thanksgiving with your family and another additional pet!! If you click on the picture of Tobi's performance, you can see her! And Zoe w/Belle, she looks soooo much older!! I can't believe it!! I was just thinking the other day about how many things I was involved in when living in SA, but now, Dave and I just go to work, come home, and just hang out. We really don't do anything!! How sad is that?! NEway, miss you, thanks for the update. Tell the girls and Bryan I said hello and miss them. too!
