The circus!

We went to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey circus with the Brewers, Mahoneys and Kyra's friends from the Young School on March 10, at the Baltimore Arena. It was so much fun to see it again- and for Kyra it was all new! It was her first time at the circus!

Right at home!

Kegger is making himself right at home with Moosie and Molly. They are playing well together, and Moosie has even let Kegger lick her face once or twice. Kelly and I took him on a long walk Sunday and he did very well. We start puppy kindergarten on April 3.

Cards I've made

Kelly hasn't updated my website where I have all of my cards lately, so I thought I'd put some up here!

These stamps are from the Stamping Bella- aren't they adorable??

Kegger is making friends!

Kegger is home!

He's here! We picked him up last night after I got back in from Buffalo. He kept us up most of the night (sorry Mandy!), but hopefully tonight he'll do better. It was so sad listening to him yelp- he just wanted to be with us instead of in the kennel. No accidents yet, we've been taking him out VERY often! I've started the process of getting him into kindergarten puppy class at the Coventry School, where we took Moosie so long ago. I hope to get into the class that starts on 4/3.

Mary & Kevin's wedding

Linda and I had a blast at Mary's wedding! We hit the Anchor Bar in Buffalo (, where we had the "original" buffalo wings, many beers (not a green beer was to be found in Buffalo- until we made our own!), and a lot of laughs. The wedding was beautiful, perfect and elegant. Mary and Kevin were beaming! The reception was lots of fun with dancing, cosmopolitans and more dancing.

Kegger is almost here!

Here's the first picture of our new puppy! He looks a little like a lab, but I'm hoping his coat is curly IRL.

I'm off to Buffalo for my friend Mary Kelleher's wedding. Mary is my friend from NCQA. Another friend from NCQA is coming in today from AZ and we're flying up tomorrow. I am hoping that Linda and I don't get snowed in!

We're getting a new addition!

We've decided to adopt a new member into our family. And it's a boy!

His name is Kegger, and he is an 8 week old Chesapeake Bay Retriever that currently lives in Elkton, MD. We go to pick him up this Sunday, 3/18!

We've wanted to get another dog, and we were going to wait until we got a house. But since I'm home until at least September, and we found a puppy for a great price, we decided to go for it. I'll train him through a school in Columbia, and I've already scouted out the dog park near here. I even found a creek near Kyra's school! As soon as he can come when he's called, we'll have a lot of fun!

We were going to name him Max, 1) in honor of the Chessie we had growing up and 2) because we have "M" dogs- Moosie, Molly. But when I was speaking with the lady who owns his parents today, she told me that they've been calling him "Kegger" because he looks like a little keg. The name cracks me up- Kegger. We're Brewers, so it seemed appropriate. Kegger Brewer. Guess I can't let go of the old SSU days after all, huh?
