Our 5th Year Anniversary Trip

We went to Las Vegas for our 5th Year Anniversary. Haley has never been to Vegas and we made it a point to walk the strip every day we were there. We had the chance to see Cirque De Soleil "O" and Wayne Brady. We stayed at the flamingo across the street from Caesars and Bellagio.

You may see quite a few pictures taken of Elvis. The reason being is that Michelle & Wayne didn't get to see any when they were in vegas (December). I know...Hard to believe.

Haley's favorite part of vegas had to be the shows and my favorite part was playing video poker (Haley and I hit four 4's twice (My Lucky Number) & four 5's once) woohoo!

Enjoy the pics!

Monte's 1st week at our home!

Here are a few pictures that we took of Monte and us!
He is doing well in our family. We enrolled him in day care
and spend plenty of time taking him to his new favorite place...
THE PARK! I wonder where he figured that one out...Shalyn of course!

We are working on getting Monte to say the words: More, Please, Thank You,
and Up. He picks things up quickly but he is too quick to show his temper as
well. Especially when we say No, No Monte.
We are having a blast and we'll continue to keep you all posted.

Introducing "monte" to our family!

As you know Haley & I are certified Foster Care Parents and completed the licensing to care for any child (we prefer 3yrs and under). We received our first call at 7pm on Thursday Jan 3rd. By 10:30pm Monte showed up at our doorstep and we welcomed him with open arms!

Monte is 16 months and weighs in at 27lbs.(whew!)
He says very few words: Ball, Oh-oh, and dog.
He is terrified of our pet rabbit "nibbles" but loves Shalyn & her toys...
especially bouncey balls and the slide.

Our hope is that we can eventually adopt Monte but for now we are excited to provide the best home & care possible for him. We will keep you posted on new news as it comes in.
