Introducing "Mister Yoshi"!!! After years and years of the kids begging, and years and years of us promising "We'll get one when we move out of student housing," we finally did it! We got the kids a dog. We weren't planning on getting a dog, and we definetly weren't planning on getting one a week after our(grandma's) precious Lamb Chop died, but one look at Mister Yoshi and we were hooked. He's a maltese, just like Lamby, which is perfect for me because, let's face it, I'm already cleaning up after 4 little ones and I can't throw dog hair in to the mix. This dog is a saint, too. He will let the kids, especially Elijah (who tends to be our craziest), do ANYTHING to him. They carry him upside down, lay on him, put him in a head lock, fling him over thier shoulder...I better stop there in case any of you are with PETA...but you get the picture. We all love him and hopefully he will be with us for a long time!
*by the way, sorry it's taken me so long to post. The only time I can get on the computer is at my folks house. Imagine that, I'm married to a computer guy and yet we don't have a working one of our own!!!
