Our newest addition has arrived!!



Miss Lilly joined our family yesterday! She is a 8 week old Maltese girl! For anyone who didn't know, here's the scoop:
She was actually a surprise to Ari! After we found out about her brace I really wanted to do something for her. Something fun and exciting. About a week later Jess called and said she decided to get a Maltese puppy from a friends mom who breeds them and had just had puppies! I sort of joked around and said maybe I should get her puppies sister. About 10 seconds later I thought seriously about it and realized this could/would be the best surprise for little Ari! Somehow we managed to keep it a secret from her for over a month!
Finally the puppies were old enough to leave their mama, so Jess (thank you) drove to Enumclaw and picked up the sisters last night for us!
We told Ari about 4 days ago that Thursday we had a big surprise for her..she has been going crazy!! Never guessing a puppy, but Lot's of other random things!! (note to self: next time maybe save some money and get her the Twinkle Toe Sketchers she's been wanting, lol)
OK, back to the story. Jon got home with Lilly and we had Ari close her eyes, Jon put her in a little bucket (again, courtesy of Jess) and set it in the front yard. Ari walked over and tried to grab her from her head. She just kind of stood there, she thought it was fake! When she realized what it was, she got really excited, I think mostly in shock though! It seemed unreal! On the video at the very end you can hear her say "is she real?".
Anyways, she ran up and gave Jon and I both the biggest hugs and said thank you thank you!! It was really sweet. She kept just petting her saying "oh I love you Lilly". And then there's Darren. He calls her Willy. :)
It was hard to get a good video. Her first impression was confusion, and as usual all the good stuff you can never catch on tape with kids!!




Ari was being the best mommy last night to Lilly. When she was ready for a nap, Ari layed on the couch right next to her for over an hour to make sure she didn't get up and fall off.

Lilly reminds me of Issa (Tena's puppy, the drug counselor at LHS) Lilly is beautiful and looks like she has a personality already! I want to see a video of when the sisters get together!
That will be so much fun or should I say fong-u-nong ;]]]
