16 years ago today I gave birth to this beautiful baby girl. Today, well, let's just say she's still beautiful...and BOSSY...
Valerie usually crawls out of bed anywhere between 4-5...PM. Today, she got up early...around 3pm, and wanted to get a move on for her 16th birthday. She could not decide between and X-Box 360 and a new puppy. After much contemplation she decided on the X-Box. BUT, she wanted to go look at the puppy first. Soooo, we drove to Dayton. When the breeder put that adorable little white Maltese in her arms she said,
"I think I will just buy my own X-box."
So we have a new addition to our family. Her name is Peyton, after Peyton Manning, of coarse! We took her with us to Spaghetti Warehouse to eat. Valerie hid her in her purse. She kept peeking her little face out...just precious! Then we took her to Wal-Mart and spent a ridiculous amount of money on clothes and accessories for this 2.2lb puppy.
I gave her a bath (she was pretty ripe!), dressed her in a cute little t-shirt, and put a pink bow in her hair. Now the hard part...how to keep the two little kids from maming this little white ball of fluff!
