Meet our stray dog Shadow. He was rescued from the streets. It’s apparently true that love is blind. I saw this photo of Shadow on and I thought he was cute. I showed the photo to MacGyver, who had relentlessly been begging for a dog, and he was quick to decide, “That looks like […]

We have a little enigma living in our home.  We brought our daughter home from the hospital and in between day-after-day, day-after-day, and then a bunch more days-after-days of no sleep, she kept us wondering, “What will her personality be like?”  For about the first 10 months of her life she was a total enigma […]
