It seems that the name of this blog was very appropriate. According to Webster's, hullaballoo means: great noise or excitement; uproar. Well, that is where we are this week. You know that saying, "Take your crazy somewhere else, we have enough of our own"? We definitely have enough crazy around our house this week to last me a long time. I knew getting a puppy was going to rock our world, but I didn't know that it would be a 10 on the Richter scale!

Callie is super sweet, and doing well. She sleeps through the night in her crate already, and is being housetrained. I can't even get frustrated with her because she is just too cute. We are going to start obedience classes in May, so that will help with my sanity I think. Aubrey just can't get enough of her and won't go to sleep for naps or nighttime without kissing and hugging her. He loves to take her outside and give her treats too. I think Callie will be Aubrey's lifelong friend.

In other news, Mallory is waving hello and goodbye, jabbering like crazy and dropping things over and over just to get us to pick them up (which we do). She is teething, and right now is holding the phone up to her ear. I don't know where she gets that from. Tomorrow I have my last MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) meeting for the year. I am sad because I have loved it this year, but excited because next year I am going to be the Creative Activities leader. MOPS has been such a great thing for me this year. D. is getting really busy at work, but that is a good thing I keep reminding myself! Tomorrow Aubrey is going on a field trip to the recycling center. So, in a nutshell, it's crazy around here!

Just pray for me and our family, that our bathrooms will get cleaned again, and we will eat homemade food sometime soon.

I love the craziness and being able to see what is going on with you guys. It makes me feel like I'm there, at least in a small way. I think the blog is a great idea! Aubrey and Mallory are adorable and growing like mad. It makes me realize how much I need to come over and see them. Callie is a cute addition to the Higgins clan too! And I'm glad someone else jumped on you for the "just" in your profile description too. I'm happy to see its been changed. You are WAY more than "just...." anything. Love you bunches!

Hey anonymous,
Every time I go to clean my bathrooms I end up taking our sweet new puppy out to go to the bathroom! So maybe you could come do that for me while I clean them. Sound good?
I love how your comment was such a sweet "I told you so!" Love you sis!

love the blog. the photos are great. I'm really looking forward to working together on MOPS stuff too! I'm guessing Jack & Mallory will get to know each other pretty well. :) Although, I'll have to warn him she's a Tech fan :)

p.s. my brother and his wife got an english springer spaniel just before Thanksgiving...she's a bundle of energy, but gorgeous. Callie looks like a beautiful puppy!
