Good news and Bad news!

Well, I have some good news and some bad news. Lets start with the good news. I have a new job. I am now an employee of Discover Card. I'm actually pretty excited. They seem like a fabulous company to work for. Their benefits are the best I've ever heard of which is great because we have been without medical insurance since September.

The bad news...our cute little Milton (one of our hamsters) has passed away. I went to get their cages our of the room we put them in at night and he was head first into his food bowl. I thought he was just being weird but I picked him up and he was very lethargic (SP?). So much so that I couldn't tell if he was dead or alive. I did some research and found a couple of diagnosis' for what might be wrong with him. His body temperature was very cold so I wrapped him in a hand towell and put him on a heating pad. He seemed to be moving more so I thought we might be out of the woods. A couple of minutes later I wasn't getting any responses from him. I was a little upset but I made a little coffin for him out of a guitar hero box and lined it with batting. We burried him in the field across the street. The ground was frozen so we didnt' get him too deep. I'm not exactly sure how many city ordinances we broke but I felt better when we were done. Rest In Peace Milton. We will miss you!

Family Photo Shoot

I have a good friend of mine that takes amazing pictures. I've seen her work a couple of times and wanted to have her do some of Sterling and I. I worked out a deal with her that I would watch her kids a couple days and she would do some pictures for us. We were really happy with the outcome. Here are a few of my favorites

This is a really cute one of Sterling and Peddie
