Yard Sale....Shmard Sale!!!!

So I have been reading about all the great finds people are getting at Yard Sales!!! Our neighborhood had a yard sale this morning and I got a HUGE purchase!!!! One of those purchases that you aren't really sure if you were in a daze or what came over you. :)

BUT WE GOT A DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kacey's Preschool teacher was at a local shelter getting info on shots....and someone came in with 2 Catahoula 8 week old baby girls!!!! She rescued them (because it was a kill shelter....AWFUL!) and of course we had to go take a look.
I am NOT good at making big decisions......so I called my husband to come check them out. (KNOWING he wouldn't want to leave without one!) This little face is what we saw and fell in love with!!!!


A DOG WITH BLUE EYES LIKE HIM AND OUR KIDS............YES PLEASE!!!!!

It is just like we brought home a new little baby. Our house is calm and she has been sleeping all day.

Our other dog, Roxy, (a Jack Russel) is celebrating her 8th birthday today!!!!!! We had already gotten a princess balloon, dog ice cream, cookies, and each one of the kids picked out a toy for her big day.....AND THEN WE GOT HER A NEW BABY SISTER.

As far as a name goes............WE ARE CLUELESS!!!!!! Chad doesn't like "people names", and I want a beach dog name. Suggestions?????!!!!!
SO THIS IS A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL OF THOSE THAT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS MISSING OUT BY NOT GOING TO A YARD SALE. ;)
