Lookey what I made!

So this isn't a card, but I thought it was blog worthy! We got the sweetest puppy for Christmas...Christmas eve really, an early present for the kids! And we are absolutely head over heals for this little guy! He was a little stray that my friend found over at the Greek Navy base where she lives. And we were looking for a puppy, she called me up and I instantly fell in love! We told the kids we had to wait and see and then I went and picked him up, took him to the vet and brought him home as a present, they freaked to say the least!

I have to tell you that we have lived in our current house for about 7 months and we begged and pleaded the whole time we've been here with the landlord to be able to have a puppy...what a nice Christmas present from him!

Anywho, we are kennel training him at the moment but our son keeps oogling the fancy dog beds at the vets office, they are riduculously priced here, so I had an old quilt we were getting rid of and I got a BRILLIANT idea...dog bed!

And here he is...BOLT...enjoying his new bed, he does love it so and it make me even happier since I made it myself! Our son named him Bolt because of the white mark on his chest...we thought it was fitting! His little nose is all dirty from digging in the dirt...naughty boy!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for bearing with me and my divergance from paper crafting!

Hugs and may God bless you today!
