Definately NOT a good blogger. I can mark that down on my list of things I'm not good at! :) Well, its been an eventful month since the last time I wrote. My parents came to visit 2 weekends ago. They were here for 4 days and we had a blast! The thing Liz probably enjoyed the most besides all the attention was the park! She loves the park!! She likes to swing but I think she likes the slides the most.

Then last weekend, Tony suprised me with a trip to San Antonio. We arrived around 5 pm Saturday night and went down and had dinner and enjoyed the Riverwalk and Market Square. Then Sunday, we woke up early and took Liz to the ZOO! Of course, she's still at the age where she doesn't quite know that these aren't animals she sees everyday so I think I probably had the MOST fun out of the three of us. I LOVE the ZOO!!!
When we arrived home, we got an even better suprise! BabySharpe#2 is on the way! I am due 28 November, just 8 days after Liz's bday and 9 after Mallory's. If this baby comes a week early, we could end up with three kids with close bdays. 19 November-Mallory, 20 November-Elizabeth, and 21 November-BabySharpe#2. We're definately going to be broke in November/December time frame :)

Where has the time gone?

So, I was looking through my blog and realized I haven't posted anything new in a LONG time! We're all doing good and getting settled in. I really like the area down here. Elizabeth is doing great and getting meaner by the minute :) She is very smart and loves to dance. Everytime Tony and I use the restroom she comes in to tell the pee pee bye bye so I'm thinking its just a matter of time before we seriously try to start potty training. She did go once on her potty but that was over 1.5 months ago. I haven't really tried to much since. Classes have started for both Tony and me so things have been pretty crazy around here. Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the beautiful weather (the weather here is awsome the only thing I hate is it is ALWAYS so dang windy!).

Allow me to introduce: Dexter Sharpe

Well, today is the day. We went to Midland and picked up Dexter from the Airport. It was fairly uneventful and everything went as planned. He's settling in very nicely and Elizabeth has a new furry friend!

1 more week to go..

Well, we've been "not-so patiently" waiting for the day to come where we drive to Midland and pick up Dexter from the airport. We will go pick him up next Saturday so in 6 days. Everyone is pretty excited and can't wait to have an addition to the family. We're hoping it gives Elizabeth someone to play with. She doesn't have any more interaction with kids since she's not in daycare anymore, and she desperately needs a playmate.

Tony's 27th birthday is Thursday, so he's feeling old. :) Other than that, things have been realitively quiet around here. We're getting settled into the new house and into the area.

Here is a new picture of Dexter @ 7wks. He's already gotten a lot bigger since the Christmas pictures as you can see. He will be 9 wks old when we pick him up.

Welcome to 2009...2008 is soooo last year!

HAPPY NEW YEARS everybody! How is the Sharpe Family ringing in the new year? With a new member of the family! Now don't go getting all excited....I'm not pregnant. We're getting a furry addition. His name will be Dexter and he is a Goldendoodle from Missouri. Right now he is 6 weeks old, but he will be about 9 weeks old when we get him. He's flying in to Midland Airport on 24 January...and Tony, Elizabeth and I am going to go pick him up. I'm really excited. Ever since we had to get rid of our last dog because he wouldn't be allowed on base, just to find out there was a problem with base housing and we are in our own house and could have kept him, I've been pretty upset. I asked Tony for a dog for my birthday. He was reluctant at first. He didn't want our new house trashed by a dog. But, after being persistant (annoying/pouting) he agreed. I wanted a big dog I could take for walks and he wanted something little that didn't shed. So, we compromised and got a Goldendoodle a big dog with minimal shedding. His daughter Mallory has one and we both fell in love with her dog when we met him so we've been browsing around for one the ast few months without actively pursing it. Tony found Dexter (Stanford) online inquired about him and after talking back and forth with the owner/breeder we were very happy with the pictures/videos. The lady really seems to love what she does and loves dogs and gives her puppies so much love and attention.

So without further ado, meet Dexter our soon-t0-be newest member of the family!
