New dog, new tricks

Thought I'd share some video of Polly. Sorry the lights are so dim- we didn't have much lighting in the house. She can now do sit, shake, down, and high five- which in her mind is really high ten! I calculated how old she was today and she is about 3 and a half months old. Right now we are working on roll over...it's not going so well.Not bad for being so young, she could probably do a lot more if I spent more time on it. Anyways, hope you enjoy!

A Christmas to Remember

We had a great Christmas this year. I had a wonderful break from school and spent a ton of time with family. Aaron got to spend some special time with his grandfather as he passed. We will miss him so much. We are grateful for our knowledge of the existence after this life and that he is in an amazing place now, and that we will see him again. The funeral was great and we got to see many relatives that we haven't seen in a long time, and some I hadn't even met! It was fun to tell stories about grandpa and just enjoy each others company.
During the holidays my ring broke! The whole diamond fell out prongs and all! Thanks to the Shane co. for replacing it. We have no idea where the diamond is- hopefully we will find it. It is likely we won't though :( I'm just glad I got to pick out a new diamond and we only had to pay 38 dollars out of pocket, we are so blessed. The last couple days I've had the stomach flu. It took a total of 15 relatives and counting down for a couple days. So far Aaron hasn't gotten it yet and has been a wonderful caretaker. Other than that things are expected to go back to normal this next week when I return to school and Aaron goes to work as usual. Hope you all had a great holiday season!
Here are some pics from the break-

My broken ring- which is now fixed! Yeah!
