One Year Later

Wrangler the shih tzu here to give you an update on our life after Sophie Rose. The Kitty Krew misses the olden days, but we all know their lives didn't really change much. They've been spending more time in Mom April and Dad Paul's bedroom, but that is more about Maw Susan being here. My life on the other paw is completely different. Don't get me wrong, I love that the Krew is locked up and I get to be out, but now I have to share with Sophie Rose. So here is my list of Pros and Cons; reasons I like having her around and reasons to get her in a great college far, far away as soon as possible.

Pro-She has to sleep in a crib in her own room, I get the big bed with Mom April and Dad Paul.

Con-I can't bark after she goes to bed.

Pro-When Dad Paul gets home, I can make it to the door faster than her.

Con-Dad Paul has less time to play with me because she needs a bath, bottle, and bed when he gets home.

Pro-Mom April is on the floor more (of course she's playing with Sophie, but at least I can get to her).

Con-Mom April's lap isn't big enough for me and Sophie.

Pro-Sophie has things I can play with.

Con-But I'm not supposed to play with them.

Pro-Lots more walks outside.

Con-Less treats (Mom April keeps forgetting)

Pro-Sophie loves to play with me, letting me chase her, giggling the whole time.

Con-Sophie loves to play with me, rolling on me and pulling my tail.

Pro-She has some really good food and loves to drop it from her highchair for me.

Overall, she's really great to have around, I guess we can keep her.

Besides, she's one more person who loves my kisses!

Date Night

Paul and I were able to go on a date last night (and for once everything seemed to work out). I took Sophie to stay and Grandma and Grandad's in the afternoon. We went to a local bar/restaurant called Fat Daddy's. It is smoke-free, has great food and live bands. Our waiter Todd was wonderful. The band The Spacerockers were hilarious (see picture below). They had a great playlist and were very entertaining. We had such a good time and this morning I did the grocery shopping before going to pick up Sophie. I hear she had fun, too!

I took Matthew to visit a fire station and then we came back home to play (and let Sophie take a nap). Matthew made these with Sophie's new blocks. He said they were transformers. When I asked if he would let me take a picture of them with him, he insisted on posing as a transformer himself!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Six years ago Paul and I got married at a wonderful bed and breakfast in Fort Worth. It's been a crazy 6 years but a fantastic time together.

For us the official gifts for a 6 year anniversary is gadgets. Paul bought me a Nook and I took him to get a new phone. The first thing he did was download the Lightsaber app. What a dork!

Hope and Matthew

Our friends from Arkansas came to visit and Sophie's birthday party. Hope and Matthew are just a few months apart in age and had a great time together. We went to dinner at Joe's Crab Shack where they got to dance and play outside.

After we left, I got a text saying that Matthew "likes pretty girls named Hope" and that he thought "she wore that dress just right". I think he is smitten!
