READER WARNING! This may be a little gross to some people... :)

Just before bed one evening this week, Jarad went in to feed our mice and found this...

Poor little Jaq had passed on. We aren't sure how he died but we think it was either old age (mice don't have long lives) or intestinal blockage (he ate too much!). Jarad wanted to leave him dead in the cage till morning but I insisted that I wouldn't be able to sleep well knowing there was a dead mouse in the house!

So we made gave him a proper burial (if you call a ziplock a coffin and the dumpster a grave site).

You were a good mouse Jaq! R.I.P.

Fun Pics of Sadie

We absolutely love our pup Sadie. She has been the best dog and is just adorable!! Here are some fun pictures of her.

She is a snugly pup and loves to take naps with me.

Sadie is also a pretty good traveler and has made a few trips south to my parents house in the past month.

Isn't she cute?!

She loves to explore the car and wishes she could sit on Jarad's lap as he drives.

Sadie gets along really well with all our families pups...she loves playing with her cousins!

Sadie got a very warm and cute coat for Christmas! Jarad really loves to take her out when she is wearing this coat! (Ok, really he keeps saying that the next dog we get will be a "dude dog.")

Yesterday, it was so nice outside, we took Sadie for a walk around the lake behind our house. She LOVED tromping around and got pretty wet and dirty playing in the leftover snow and mud!
