Charlie and the Woofs

Aunt Kathi and Uncle Lloyd got a new puppy and we were so excited to take Charlie over to meet Austen. Austen is a "Canvas puppy" -- Canvas, their oldest dog, is his daddy. Canvas is a major stud and has dates with other girl doggies from all over the place. Austen was born in Texas and flew here in January to live with Kathi and Lloyd.

Sweet Austen...look at that face! I loved playing with a soft puppy!

January Fun

Some months it's easier to capture in one post highlighting some details of our everyday life. January is one of those months...

A year and a half ago, as I traveled to Northwestern to be with Kenny, I drove by Heaven on Seven, a cajun restaurant, each day. Kenny loves cajun food and I would bribe him with a visit there sometime when he was released from the hospital. It might have taken 17 months, but we finally made it there. We both had the day off from work and a doctor's appointment and support group meeting brought us to Chicago that day, so we enjoyed a lunch at Heaven on Seven finally. It was heavenly too! We also did a little shopping and relaxing in the afternoon as we read and drank coffee. A perfect day for a date!

How can you resist that face?

The kid loves food and eats things that I never would, even as an adult. It's wonderful!
