A new addition to our family!

I feel like I've been so busy lately. I don't take as many pictures as I used to. Sad.
But here's some of what we've been up to in the past few months:

A little of this.
A little of that.
Some of this.
And Ty sure has liked to pretend he's a puppy.

Meet Rozz.
She's the newest member of our family and a good match for us.
(I recite that to myself every time she pees on the carpet.)
Kollan decided it was time to get a dog. I dragged my feet.
He took me to the animal rescue, and of course I knew before we even went in that we would be leaving with a dog. She's a Chippin (part chihuahua and part mini pincher).
Karter took this picture. Rozz is very loved.

In other news, Karter's excited about Little League.
Ty is starting in a home preschool group,
and Kollan just got moved into his newly built office.
Karter thinks his Dad's famous now that we can hear his ad on the radio!

Here's just some cute pics of the boys before Karter left for school this morning.

If you don't mind a story about poo...

Sometimes after conversing with my boys, I just have to laugh.

Today, Ty was holding a tiny bit of dried dog poo.

He says, "Look Mom! Poo!"
me: "Ew! Are you really holding poo?!"
ty: "It's OLD poo."
me: "That doesn't matter. Go throw it away and wash your hands!"
As we wash:
Ty: "But it's OLD."
me: "That doesn't matter. Poo is poo, whether it's old or new. You don't touch it."

I had been pretty serious and disgusted, so when we went back into where Karter was, I thought about the poo-filled conversation and laughed and rolled my eyes.

Ty jumped on that and exclaimed to Karter, "It's FUNNY! Mom laughed!"
Me: "No, Ty. Holding poo really isn't funny. Please don't do it anymore."
After a reflective pause, Ty asks, "Why was I holding poo?"
