Meet Max

We added to our family over the weekend.  We now have a new little puppy roaming around Casa Cline.  Max is a 4 week old Goldendoodle Lab mix, and he is just the cutest little thing.  He and Maggie, our Golden Retriever, seem to be getting along well, which is a good thing.  I'm glad that they will have a friend to play with when we are gone.  Our cat Callie is not as sure about this new creature however.  She has definitely been more reserved, and is in full on stalk mode most of the time.  I have been catching her following Max from a distance.  I think it will just take one time and the puppy will understand that Callie prefers to be left alone...luckily for Max Callie doesn't have any front claws!

Snowpacalypse 2011

From the news reports, you'd think that Kansas City has never seen snow.  While I will admit that I'm not heading outside any time soon, I do think it is a little crazy that things start shutting down way before any weather ever makes it here.  Yesterday we got out of school early because of ice, and I'm glad because it was very slick!  Today the snow had started...we are expecting about a foot.  My in-laws are expecting 2 feet, so I think we are getting the better end of that deal! 

We are planning to hang out around the house, do some much needed cleaning, and grading!  I'm sure that my kids will be in and out to try out the new sleds that their dad brought home yesterday.  It is pretty cold though, so I'm sure their trips outside will be short lived.

I hope that you are staying warm and bundled up if the snow is hitting your place!
