Look at those sad eyes! How could anyone NOT want her?!
MaryEllen (who is normally pretty scared of dogs) is totally comfortable with Clara. That might be because Clara is obviously scared to death of everything right now. The people at the shelter don't know her previous circumstance, but we're guessing she needs a little extra love.

Well, nothing is for sure yet. We went to the SPCA today just to look around. Brian has taken MaryEllen before and we thought that since Henry is such an animal lover he would have fun visiting the dogs. I never thought it would happen, because I'm not really an animal person, but we saw a little red and white beagle and I totally fell in love! (The dog below is not ours, but looks very similar.)
So we are 2nd on the waiting list. (A dog must be in the custody of the SPCA for a week before being adopted out.) We will go back Friday morning at 10 am and if the person who is first on the list isn't there she is all ours! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, for my sake and the kids, but she is such a sweet little pup! She is 3 yrs old, not too big, but not too small, and she didn't bark or jump once the whole time we were there! She was a stray, so her name is unknown, and MaryEllen has informed us that if we get her, her name will be Clara. I think it fits, so I'm not going to argue. Wish us luck!!!
Anyway, the kids had a blast running through the tree's while Brian and I debated. All in all it was a good experience. (And cheaper than Home Depot, too!)
MaryEllen wanted this one. Can you tell that she loves Charlie Brown?
This is my favorite picture!
The men hard at work.
I finally got the paci away! Such a cute face behind there!
Good thing we bought that Mini- van!
So I married a saws- all Murderer? (Scary.)
The Finished product. I love it!!!

Every time I pull out this bucket of blocks he goes straight over and sits in it. Right on top of the blocks. Looks Comfy!
His favorite spot to kick back and check out the hotties in Parenting magazine.
We got him this huge sucker at the zoo. (Brian's idea not mine.)
You can tell the tiger bib is our favorite, it has great coverage.
His first (and possibly last) experience eating soup with no assistance. He probably consumed about 1/2 teaspoon worth, and fingerpainted with the rest.
Do I have something on my Pacifier?
Out front, raring to go.
Her own cubby!
Writing her name on her first art project.
