On Saturday I tried to help Milo dye his hair back to a normal color or at least one that didn't make him look like the living dead. Brother. That kid. He died his hair a black color that had like a green under tone to it which made him look all washed out with black circles under his eyes. He truly looked sickly. So I tried to get a better color going for him and I think because of all the processing he had already done to his hair it turned a dark red color. Although it didn't make him look dead it wasn't what he wanted. I don't blame him. I don't know what the final result was. I'm sure he dyed it again, but I haven't heard.
Secondly, we got our puppy last weekend and he is so good and so cute! We love him to death. We had to take up to Utah with us because he's too little to leave with the big dogs. He did so well! He rode up front with me and slept pretty much the whole way. I didn't even have to stop for him at all. I do love a low maintenance dog.

Tuesday the kids and I went up to Lancaster and picked out our puppy. Robert knew immediately which one we should get. Me? I had to think about it for a couple of days. They were both so cute and loving and.... oh man! I wanted them both. However, I was leaning towards the whiter one of the two. So, I asked if I could think about it for a couple of days. I have to say that the breeder has been so patient and accomodating with me which I am very greatful for. Sorry no pics of him yet.
Wednesday and Thursday we went to Disneyland. Mike took Wed off and we went down early early that morning. The kids, G. Sandy and I stayed in the Disneyland Hotel overnight so we could get up early the next morning to hit California Adventure and more of Disneyland. It was probably the funnest 2 days I think we've had in a long time. The kids were just bouncing off the walls both days and I loved every minute of it! Sandy and I just couldn't get over how we too felt like kids all over again. We were laughing at all the grown men wearing the goofy hats because we knew there was no way they would be caught dead wearing those things outside of the park amongst their co-workers. Yet we totally understood. Robert cried when we had to leave. I totally got that. I didn't want it to end either. It was the most perfect 2 days ever!
Grandma Sandy left on Friday. We were all very sad. Carly kept asking where Grandma Sandy was and would adamantly deny that she was actually gone. When it finally sunk in that Grandma Sandy wasn't coming back she cried.
Finally, I picked our puppy today. I met the breeder in Sylmar and took a final look at our new dog. Robert was right. It's the darker of the two (he's the one on the right in the pic). His name will be Santiago Joaquin. But we'll call him Jack.
