This is AWESOME!!

I had to share this picture with everyone!! Yes you are looking at a real live pink poodle!!! We met her at the park. We asked her owner how this fiasco came to be. She said, a mixture of cheap fruit juice and Kool-Aid! Crazy huh!! Who would think to do this is beyond me. But, here it is all the same!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the dinner or family! What a klutz I know! I was too busy eating and chatting with the in-laws and their family to take any decent pictures. We did have a great holiday though! I would say the only downfall was sleeping outside of Office Depot on Thursday night!!! Yes, we are those people! :) I actually slept in the car for a couple of hours and then decided I was going home. I did get back to the store at a very early 4 in the morning. I guess you could say it was worth it!! We did find some great deals!! Jay actually slept in line outside with his dad!!! I think he is feeling the reprocussions today being as he has a very sore throat and is not going to work. What topped off the great holiday weekend you ask? The TITANS WON!! Yes, they beat the Giants, scoring 24 points in the 4th quarter. Yep, I was there!! It was an extremely boring game up until the 4th quarter. I feel bad for the fans who left early and missed the climactic ending! A 49 yard field goal! It was perfect! Jay's throat might hurt from all the yelling too, you can never tell. Well, I hope everyone had a great holiday and jis getting revved up for Christmas. I know I am. I already started wrapping gifts. We don't even have a tree yet! What can I say...I love this time of year.

Even though I have e-mailed everyone pictures of Gus, I only thought it appropriate to include a picture of him on this site as well. It is a good way to keep track of his growth too!! We can look back in the archives (when we have enough blogs!), and see what a cute little puppy he was! I am sure Mike and Anna like that tidbit for Aidan as well. He definitely isn't picky about which toy he plays with, unlike Snickers! His little green hippo has already lost all of it's stuffing!!! And only in one week!!!! His adolescence should be interesting!

I'm a Copy-Cat!

I was talking to Mike the other day and he mentioned how easy this "family website" is to set up and use. He said Anna did it in a flash!! So, following the wisdom of my family, I thought I would use this knowledge to help everyone keep in touch with us as well. Everyone knows that Gus is growing fast and is much bigger already. I thought instead of getting hounded for pictures, everyone could visit our wonderful website and check things out for themselves! (sorry Dad!) Don't worry... the e-mails will still come. You know me....any excuse to talk!!! I hope everyone jumps on the blogger band wagon! It seemed to go over well when Mike and Anna began blogging. So, enjoy the peek into the lives of the Michaelsons in Tennessee!
