Celebrating 60 Years!

Happy Anniversary to my grandparents!  Nana and Papa celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this weekend.  What a wonderful model of love!

Morgan and Madison graduated from their puppy class on Monday!  We were so happy with the experience as well as the results!  During the 6 week course they learned to sit, stay, down, shake, roll over, watch me, leave it, and walk on a loose leash.  They also learned some invaluable socialization with other puppies and people.

 Our class at PetSmart

 They received certificates, treats, and a toy as graduation "gifts" from the store.

The pups with their trainer, Mary (they loved her and so did we)

Overall, we loved the experience and would recommend puppy classes to new dog owners.  It is a great way to get them started on their manners and get some valuable socialization.

No longer a dance studio!

Our dining room is no longer a big empty space.  We finally filled it with furniture this week! I have been going back and forth over the perfect dining room table that could seat 10.  I've looked all over the internet and in many furniture stores.

I decided on (what I felt like) was a traditional style that I will (hopefully) like for many years to come.  To give it a little more character, we are planning to use a pew bench from my grandfather's church on one side of the table.  The pew is around 80 years old and is from a Primitive Baptist Church.

And the kitchen has some new furniture, too! 
Before and After
No more dance parties...time for dinner parties!
