Oh no I dint...oh, wait...yes I did!

I am a sucker.
There is one born every minute.

Point in case:

This is the newest member of my household. We THINK her name is Jouet (French for 'toy'). We aren't positive about that yet. But it seems to fit. To illustrate just how tiny she is right now, I direct you to this photo:

My apologies for the quality of the's from my cell phone, but yes, she is INSIDE Caleb's sweatpants pocket.  She probably weighs about 1.5 lbs now.  She may get up to 6 or 7 lbs and 10" tall.  She is called a Phantom...which means while she is a toy poodle, she has the markings of a Doberman Pinscher.  I don't like poodles.  But who couldn't love a face like that?  Yes, I caved.  Yes, I am potty training another dog. 
Ted's sister raises them and she is going to France next weekend to visit her daughter, who is an absolutely amazing young woman, a coluratura soprano.  Even if you don't like opera, I think you will hear about her.  She was told last week by the Prima Diva in France that she would one day have multiple homes on multiple continents.  But I digress.  Becky needed to find a home for Jouet.  Quickly. Ted was visiting his mom and dad and came home with Jouet.  I am a sucker.  But at least the little dog tu*ds are miniscule. 
Claire is NOT happy, but will adjust.  Sabra....maybe not...  If you know of anyone in NM or the Four Corners area looking for a new furkid, Jouet has a brother....
In other news, Tyler left last Wednesday for his Stand True trip.  So far, it's going with only a minor hitch:  his cell phone is broken.  He can receive calls and call out, but texting is broken.  Hoping for a Verizon anchor store near one of his stops so that he can get it replaced while it's still under warranty.  Please continue to pray for him, and the whole team and the lives they will touch.  He is in his happy place tonight, at the Icthus Festival in KY, which features lots of his favorite bands.  What a great time to be 19....
Tomorrow is day 2 of SonForce Kids VBS...we have a spy/space theme and I'm in charge of games.  It's also crazy hair day.  I have blue spray, so I can finally acheive my lifelong goal of being a blue-haired lady.  Now I can officially tell all the young moms how to raise their toddlers and be both authoratative and guilt-free at the same time.  SCORE!
I'm taking votes for the new little furkid's name...any suggestions are welcome!
So now,  as one of my friends from England says, "til soon."
