This is our new puppy. We got him to be a companion for our other dog Rowdy. He's been nameless since Tues., but we finally agreed on a name for him last night. Tino. In honor of St. Valentine (or Valentino in Italian). We got him on Valentine's Eve, so Tino it is. He was a stray that one of the ladies at work has been taking care of, so we don't really know what he is, but we think there's some German Shepherd in there somewhere. He is so gentle and mild mannered it's incredible.

Here he is getting his first bath. He just held still the whole time. I think he was petrified.

Valentine's Day

OK, Jonathan has never been a big Valentine's Day person, but this year, he was up to something and very proud of himself. I have to say he did well, because this is what he gave me... Yes, he made this giant Hershey's kiss himself. He bought a bunch of chocolate chips, melted them, poured it in a funnel, and well, you can see the results for yourself. Creative, inexpensive, and thoughtful - what more could I want?

Heather's Bachelorette Party

OK, I've been slacking a little on the blogging. Jonathan and I moved Thurs. before last and I have been out of town for the last two weekends for Heather's bachelorette party and wedding. We just got internet before we left this past weekend, so I am trying to play catch up! The wedding was BEAUTIFUL. We had a great time and I was so honored to be a part of Heather and Jimmy's celebration. Incidentally, the photography team who shot the wedding was the same one that shot ours almost three years ago...except in reverse. This time Jodel Phillips was the main photographer and Kristin Bednarz shot 2nd. Kristin has some gorgeous pics already up on her blog if you're interested, and I will post Jodel's site when some of her pics are up (I don't know which one they'll be on!) Anyway, here are a few pics from the beginning of the bachelorette party.
I just realized that this is the first pic of me on the blog. Heather's friend Triny took this.
Sisters....Heather and Kimberlee
Here is Triny. I LOVE her laugh! She and Kimberlee were the party planners. They did a great job!
