A New Bass!

Ever since we lost our boxer girl Hallie over a year ago, we've been missing a family member in the dog department. We visited shelter dogs, looked into boxer rescues, but in the end we knew a puppy was best for us. We searched and searched and was lucky enough to find a small breeder. Out of the 7 puppies, one stood out. Now without further ado… Molly!

Molly is super sweet and a really great puppy! I don't know if it's just her or a boxer thing, but she is so obedient. We don't even have to use treats in training her. She follows us around, sitting at our feet, giving kisses, and snuggling. The kids LOVE her and she loves them! 

Ava is kind of obsessed with dog food. We have to watch her close - she will have her hands grabbing that food and shoving in her mouth so fast!

I would have more pictures, but our camera's autofocus is still broken and it's really hard to capture moving dogs and kids without an autofocus. 
Max kind of ignored Molly when she first came home, but he quickly got over that. I have a feeling they are going to be best buds. Max and Molly love wrestling around, chewing on toys, and chasing each other in the yard. Hopefully I can capture on video Molly's "boxer bounce" when she goes after Max. It's so cute!
I kept trying to take pictures of the puppy and Ava wanted to help. Those eyes kill me! So cute!

Christmas Fun!

Christmas was so much fun this year! Bo totally knew what was going on. It's funny how much more exciting something is when kids are excited. Ava even got in on the fun and enjoyed it all. 

Coming down the stairs, ready to see under the tree! We had not one present under the tree until they were allowed to unwrap them. I didn't feel like rewrapping everything!

"Now where did those cookies and milk go to?"

We won't be able to get away with this when the kids are older, but we made them eat breakfast before presents!  

I love Bo's expression. He really likes his "Woody Buzz" nightlight.

This is probably one of Ava's favorites. They love the cheap stuff!

Ava was almost as excited as Bo was about his cowboy boots.

Bo riding "my bike". I need to get a picture of him riding his bike with the Spiderman mask on.
We also had so much fun with our families, but our camera's autofocus is broken so it makes it less than enjoyable to take it everywhere, so we didn't capture any pictures.
