puppy love - part 2

I had to post this video we took of little Maxwell today.  I love the way he runs!

Something is wrong with the microphone on my digital camera so just ignore the static noise.  In fact why don't you just mute it.  Also, here is another pic.


I promise I'll try really hard to talk about other things besides our puppy.  But he is all I can think about right now.  :)

puppy love

Adam and I were really blessed this weekend.  We have had puppy fever for a LONG time now, okay about 6 months.  We decided on a labradoodle around Christmas time, and I have to admit that I have spent many moments of my life searching for them online.  There happened to be a breeder in Georgetown where my parents live!  For the past couple of weeks, the breeder has had the perfect chocolate boy puppy with adorably curly hair.  This weekend we were able to take him home and we have officially added to our family!!!!!  It was love at first site.  This dog is amazing.  He is super mellow and loves to cuddle.  He is absolutely perfect and for some unknown reason as of now, God wanted us to have this puppy and we are thrilled!  Introducing...

 Maxwell

In case you are wondering, we named him Maxwell after the physicist who won the Nobel Prize for Quantum theory.  You can read about it here.  Or maybe we named him that after the coffee company since he is a chocolate color...

Mmm Mmm Good

It was a Happy Easter indeed. My parents and their puppies came to College Station for Easter this year and we had a whole Easter meal for the five of us (mom, dad, adam, kristen, alison = nosila). Alison (my sis) is now the family pro cook/chef/baker and for Easter she made Pavlova.

At first, everyone was afraid because the outer crust was so hard. We had no idea what was waiting for us in the center! She spread home made whipped cream on top along with strawberries and blueberries and cut a piece. When she pulled out her piece it was like a light shown down on it and the angels sang. You could see the soft inside that melted in your mouth. Mmmm it was so good!

Way To Go Adam!!!

On Good Friday, Adam participated in an aerospace competition and got third place!! The competition included a written 11 page max report and a 20 minute presentation. He presented on his master's research which is about the effects of space weather (specifically protons) on satellite imaging detectors. He did awesome!!! The competition was at the AIAA Region IV Student Conference 2010 located at NASA JSC in Houston, TX. The conference even put us up in a hotel for free! There were about 12 students in the master's division and Adam did a great job! After the awards ceremony, I made him pose in front of the podium even though he didn't want to. He will thank me later.


Isn't he a cutie.
