My sister invited Blake and I out for a double date with her and her husband this weekend. She really wanted to go see the Ice Castles in Midway. I had seen so many cool pictures recently so we decided to go check it out with them. Our pictures don't even do it justice. It was so neat!!
In my last post I announced the newest member of our family being an adorable white boxer. In the time we had before bringing her home, we did our research and we're quickly informed of many concerns that come along with white boxers. It's said that they are not as healthly as other colored boxer and can often times be deaf. Regardless if the statements are myths or actual facts, we didn't want to take the chance of what may have been another heartache. Since there was another puppy Blake had fallen in love with he made me an an awesome deal that I couldn't resist.
The deal is, we get the puppy he wants and when we adventually get into our forever home with more room I get another Great Dane.
So, we did not bring home the little white puppy but instead this precious little thing!
Say hello to Mori.

I started looking through the KSL classifieds a couple days ago and ever since I haven't stopped bugging Blake about getting a puppy. I guess I must have nagged a few too many times because... we just got back from picking out the newest member of our family!!
We got first pick of a litter of 8 boxer puppies. I fell in love with one and Blake fell in love with another. We had to leave with out making a decision because neither of us would agree on one. After leaving, we decided to flip a coin.. my pick was heads and heads it was!
say hello to our sweet little lady.
we bring her home in a few weeks!
We miss our Kady so much and we would do anything in the world to have her back. This puppy has got some big shoes to fill, but she'll be loved for whatever personality she brings into our home. I'm just excited to have another 4 legged friend in our house.
Home is not a home without a dog.
Blake & I really know how to bring in a new year.
Once we got home I made deep dish chocolate chip cookies and topped them with heaping scoops of ice cream and a generous amount of caramel topping. Then, Blake passed out and I watched all the crazy people in NYC and waited for the ball to drop. With only 5 seconds to go till the new year I woke my love up to get my New Years kiss and then we went to bed. Party animals, I know but I wouldn't have traded it for the world.
Happy New Year everyone!

I would like to announce that I am officially a new 49er fan! Blake is more than pleased with my decision and we owe it all to our experience at Sundays game. Blake has been a 9er fan ever since we was a little boy so this was a dream come true for him. I will never forget the pure joy he was in. It was priceless! I'm totally taking credit for what was quite possibly his best birthday present ever. Here are some pictures of our day at Candlestick.

|parking was a nightmare|
|8 dollar fries and a 10 dollar beer|
|I was so happy Blake flagged down the hot coco man. I was FREEEEEEZING|
|we tried to stay as close to the field as possible until whoever's seats we |
were in decided to come kick us out.. oops.
