Richard and I went to the Pet Store "just to see what they have"...

Of course, we didn't come home empty handed. The cutest little puppy was chasing me around the store and when I would pick her up, she would cuddle up to me. She was the sweetest thing and we both fell in love...

We moved to Texas ya'll

Rich and I took an opportunity to move to Fort Worth, Tx to save some money and help his grandma out. Up until early this morning, I couldn't find anything wrong with living out here. But, at 5 am, we woke up to what sounded to me as a siren from an old war movie warning everyone that they were about to be bombed. Turns out, it was a tornado warning siren.Now, I'm from California, and my only experience with a tornado is from watching the Wizard of Oz. So of course, I'm the only one freaked out while Richard acts like it's no big deal. He was just annoyed that he had to get out of bed. So we went out to the living room and turned on the news. They said that we were under a tornado warning, which means that there hasn't been a tornado yet, but the conditions are those that would form one. So, we sat there and listened to the pounding rain, high winds, and the scariest lightning and thunder I've ever experienced and just waited. Luckily the storm passed quickly and nothing happened.
...I'm definitely not a country girl.

Before we dropped Taylor off at the MTC for his 2 year mission, we decided to do a family photo shoot. The last family picture we did was over 10 years ago! So, we called the best photographer we know, Ashley Swapp...and she did an amazing job!

Introducing Sadie Campbell

We got our first pet! We're apparently "nesting" according to some friends. We went to the pet store to see if Richard would be allergic to ferrets (because he seems to be allergic to every other animal) and when he realized that he wasn't, he immediately fell in love with one. I was a little worried about getting a ferret. Being from California, where ferrets are illegal, I had heard many horror stories and reasons as to why they're illegal. But after holding her for just a few minutes, I fell in love! She is so sweet and will fall asleep on my lap or in my arms. She's a lot like a kitten...she gets really hyper and playful and will chase us around the house. She is the most entertaining thing...Richard and I can watch her for hours! She likes to steal things though. She'll take anything that will fit in her mouth and carry it or drag it to her hiding spot (under the couch). We'll see her run back and forth from the bedroom to the couch and find a bunch of our stuff stashed away! We love our little girl!
