I'm a winner..I'm a winner!!!(doing the happy dance) First time I have ever won anything in blogland. I'm so excited, this has made my day!!! I have been taking part in the In Stitches bingo game at and I was choosen as a winner in the daily giveaway. It's too late to enter but you may want to watch and enter the next time. It is a lot of fun.

I know, I know I failed again. No posting and no pictures esp. after I said I would. But I have a pretty good reason or at least my son thinks so. I had to go and meet Santa's elf and pick up a puppy for my son. Santa can't bring puppies on his sleigh because it's too scary and cold. After I met Santa's elf we had to go to Wally World and pick up a kennel and bed and food and toys and puppy pads and.... you get the idea, as bad as having a baby, but Santa thought Stevie would like to pick out what he thought his new puppy would like.

How do you hide a puppy for a week??? We couldn't, so he came into our family early. I do have pictures (Yeah, I know I always say that) but the expression on my son's face was priceless when he opened that box and saw his puppy. Even his dad said he would never forget that expression. He was so excited, even jumped with both feet. After a lot of dicussion, we decided this would be a good thing for Stevie. If you don't already know, Stevie has Down Syndrome and because of this he doesn't really have friends to play with at home, so we thought this would be good. He feeds hims and makes sure he has water. Although, when Stevie fills the water bowl, half ends up on the floor, but that's ok. I found it was less messy if I cleaned up poop, so I have poop patrol when I am at home. Not quite getting the puppy pad concept yet, but we are working on it. Oh forgot to mention "he" is a Boston Terrier. We were trying to come up with a name that Stevie could say pretty plain (he has a speech problem)we went through what seemed like a thousand names and every one Stevie would say NO, NO, No. Then as a joke my husband said "how about Gibby? They were watching I Carly at the time, and Stevie said YES! We have brought up other names but it looks like you will be hearing a lot about Stevie and Gibby. Name kind of fits him, I must admit. I promise I will have so many pictures you will get tired of looking.
