puppy sitters

we're watching paisley, who is my brother and sis-in-law's doggie. she is loved. we love having her here... and can't wait to get our puppy next spring. she's peaking through the window behind the kiddos. she wanted to be outside with them so bad... but she did not like her electric fence being set up in our yard... and was equally unhappy being on her leash unable to be right next to the kids. so in the house she stayed.
she likes to sleep with each of the kids. and they all share her. tonight is merrick's night.
i do fear what will happen after she leaves. we have used her as "bait" for the kids a lot this week. "if you do not get up good for school, paisley will not sleep with you." "if you do not do etc..." hmmm... may backfire.
but... the greatest thing is realizing that we're ready for a dog! we all are... not just the kids. yay!!! crazy that this "season" is here... never thought i would see THAT day! Praying for our next family member :) who will look something like this:

Awe. Very fun. Excited for you guys. Our dog Jake is definitely part of the family. He moves from bed to bed throughout the night.
