Can You Believe It??

So, Kirst went to New York last week with some friends to watch some plays and sightsee. Last Friday I called her, and texted her several times, begging and pleading that she would go to wall street. Why you ask?? Well, last Friday topped an historic week for America and the economy. We haven't seen a move like this in the stock market since the depression. Friday looked to be the bottom (lets hope!) and I wanted her to be able to say to our grandchildren that she was there! She was more interested in gelato, and seeing Hermione Granger...then being part of history!, so I begged and pleaded and guess what???.....

SHE WENT! Can you believe it??

Ok, this has been a long time coming...but we got a puppy! Now I know there are some of you out there hoping that we would be bragging about a child instead of a puppy...but this cute face will have to do for now. We got her at the beginning of September, and quite truthfully, I am obsessed with her. Today I taught her to stand up, and lay down on command and was so proud. The best is when she runs after the cat. Now don't get me wrong, I really like our cat...but it's nice to see "Her Majesty" the all-gracious...get worked up and freaked out. Pretty good entertainment. In fact, here is a video of one of their fights.....
