Christmas morn

So the big Christmas present this year was .........

(last year was a trampoline, next year will be a maid for me)

and other than a christmas orange........



introducing Pozole aka Po


(for people not in the exclusive Spanish club, Pozole is kind of traditional mexican soup that is the around the same color as Po's hair)

endearing pseudonyms include: poski, stink, po-licious, posker, po bo and po diddy

She's a bitch but we love her already. As an 8 month old beagle/retriever she confuses herself mostly, daily pondering which breed she is going to manifest--sleep like a beagle or run like a retriever, talk about bi-polar.








MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!--we send our love and best holiday wishes (and maybe next year we'll even send a card)

whoa, big step there. i thought you were keeping it to 2 kiddos for now. how brave of you to take on a puppy. beautiful choice :)

It fits... every proper Texan family, especially a Texas lawyer needs to have a huntin' dog. I was hoping Tom would get into golf so he could take me to all the fancy high dollar Golf Clubs that I'm sure the company has access to when I come visit (why do you think we've been holding out on our visits), but clearly a golfing dog doesn't fit the profile. Oh well... Sounds like a VERY successful Christmas at your house. The pictures are awesome... we love to see the girls! Our love to all our Texan family!

Great dog! Bet you didn't know it was going to be like having another child, but at least it doesn't take as long for them to grow up! Their teenage years are a bit easier than humans, but I guess I'm jumping way ahead here! Loved the pictures! There's nothing better than getting a dog for Christmas for the kids. It's one of our kids most favorite memories. Thanks for sharing! Aunt Michelle
