Anyone know why.....

my dog likes to spread his legs out? I think it is hilarious. I especially like when he drags himself on the floor with his front legs to stretch out. He rarely lays with his legs tucked under his body. It gets really fun when he lays like this horizontally between Jay and I at night. Luckily, he doesn't mind if we turn him around. He sleeps like a log.

Our Christmas Tree

Here is our beautiful Christmas Tree!!! I think it is wonderful. You might be wondering why there are no lights on the bottom...Well, we didn't want Gus to chew them up and we figured they would eventually be blocked by gifts anyway. Well, there also is the fact that we sort of ran out!!! It all worked out in the end though. I am not sure if you have a good view of it, but yes, Gus has a stocking! It was carefully hand crafted by my mom as well as mine and Jay's! Thanks mom!!! They are great.

Here is another view of our tree! See, is wasn't such a bid deal that the lights didn't quite make it to the bottom!!! Oh, and the Christmas village in the corner is so cute. It is a Pooh Bear Christmas Village. Jay got this for me a few years ago, but this is the first year it has been used! It is so cute!

I think this is the best picture of all! I put him over by the tree, told him to sit and stay and he actually did it!!! It was unbelievable!! He would only let me take one, so there isn't a real ambiance with the lighting. I didn't have the chance to turn off the flash. I think he did very well though, plus it gives a pretty good idea on how much he has grown. When we got him, he was chubby little guy of 16 pounds. Now he is lean, a bit taller and weighs 22 pounds! He should get to be around 30-35 pounds when he is full grown. Almost there!! His mannerisms are still completely puppy though!! He his loads of fun and a great cuddler!

My Future Model!!

Isn't this HILARIOUS!!! Look at him showing off. He definitely fits into the family well; a little bit of crazy and a whole lot of cute!! I am thinking of sending this one in to Cosmo. I think it is provocative enough to make the cover. He might want to work on pouting his lips a little more. :)

Our Wedding Video

Just to let everyone know, we officially have our wedding video for your viewing pleasure. If you would like a copy of it, just let me know. We have 6 on hand, but our photographer said that he would make more if needed. I will admit it isn't a blockbuster hit, but it was fun to watch all the same. I liked seeing the parts of the wedding that I missed and some of the things that were said.. I know I will enjoy it many times in the future and we would love to share the moments with you.

P.S. It is a DVD, so you don't have to worry about old technology!!

The Titans did it again!! What a fun game. I can definately say that this was a great weekend for football in Tennessee. On Saturday night, Jay's high school almamater, the Smyrna Bulldogs, won the division 5A state championships for the first time is school history and the Titans beat the Colts for the first time since 2002! I can say I am a little footballed out, but it was well worth it! The kicker for the Titans, Rob Baronas, kicked an amazing 60 yard field goal to with the game with 11 seconds left!! It was extremely exciting being as the Colts are first in the division. The stadium went crazy!! People were on the streets and in parking lots after the game chanting Rob Baronas!! It is more fun if you put his name to the tune of My Sherona! So all in all a great weekend. I hope everyone's Christmas shopping, decorating, and plans are going well. Just 21 more days til Christmas!!
