Long weekend

I know, it's been too long again. If I spent the time blogging that I spend playing games on Facebook I'd have posts up every day lol. I'm sure I have tons to post about. In fact we've acquired a new addition to our family that I need to post about. Guess I'll do that now while I'm thinking of it.

This weekend we went up to Idaho for a family reunion (Hubby's family). Silly me didn't think to check the weather forecast, so we got up to the campground Friday night and it was freezing! Since we've had weather in the 90s for weeks I was not prepared. We had no sweaters or jackets or anything. Brr! It was a relief to go to bed and snuggle into our warm sleeping bags. I didn't sleep very well, even though I had the only non-leaking air mattress lol. It is not comfortable to share a sleeping bag with a teething baby who wakes up every hour. But at least we had a delicious breakfast cooked over the fire in the morning. We had the family potluck and stuff in the afternoon and it was lots of fun and lots of good food.

And here comes the part about our new family member. Hubby has an aunt whose dog fathered a bunch of puppies that she needed to find homes for, so she brought them up to the campground. She managed to find homes for them all, one of them with us. I'm not sure what I was thinking lol. We had promised Jason last year that we'd get him a puppy when he turned 5, and that is next month. The puppy is a Pug-Schnauzer mix, so he will stay small and should be a good family dog. Oh, and we named him Sam to go along with our other America-themed animals- Stars, Stripes, Colors, and now Sam (as in Uncle Sam).
This morning we got up and got ready for church and I once again wished I had one of those cute tie or tuxedo shirts that they sale for babies, the ones that are a onesie with a picture of a tie or suit on them, I think they are so cute. Anyway, while getting ready we remembered that we needed to meet with our bishop today so we only stayed for the first meeting and then headed home.

All in all it was a good weekend, just exhausting. And now I get to learn how to housetrain a puppy, eek!

He is a little cutie- I love puppies-- house training doesn't sound like to much fun though. :) When do you start school? I feel like over the summer I've lost track of how everyone is doing on blogs? Hope all is well there.
