    Puppy Love

    Some people have asked if we ever regretted getting a dog. I can honestly say no. More honestly some days I think how much easier things (i.e. travel) would be but then I’d miss the interaction between E and Scotia. I must also admit, I do like being pregnant for the simple fact that the dog actually pays attention to me. Well, curls up and sleeps by my side or feet depending on where I am sitting.

    Christmas in MH

    While giving Scotia her stocking and presents we turn around and see this: E got a few things in his stocking from Santa. Starting to open his giant mound of presents. It was a great Christmas!
