It's a BOY

We gave in a bought a PUPPY!
So, I now spend my days potty training and teaching not to bite.
He is the most adorable little guy in the whole wide world.
His name is Jimmer and he is a maltese.
He is currently 9 weeks old and 2 lbs.

We absolutely love him!
Isn't he the cutest??

He loves to cuddle with us when he's not playing. It's so sweet.
Sleeping in my jacket. This is how we sleep at night. Just pooped after playtime.
We are so happy we got him.
He is such a fun addition to our little family.

He is definitely hard work but he is worth it!

Until next time...

Love, The Meise's

Late Christmas/New Years Update

I know it's already well in to January but I wanted to share about our Christmas and New Year celebrations.
Christmas was a blast as always.
We originally planned to go to Jeff's parents in Pennsylvania for this Christmas but due to flight prices we decided to stay here in Arizona.
Jeff's dad got an iPad for one of his presents though so it was fun getting to facetime with them!
We started out with our own little celebration at our apartment Christmas morning and opened up the presents that we got for each other.
It was really fun having our own little family Christmas even though it was just the two of us.
Later that day, after we went to church, we went down to my parents house and the festivities began!
My mom had tons of snacks, we played the game Jeff's family got us and just enjoyed each others company.
My sister and her husband had Christmas at his parents so we waited to open up presents until they got there.
We got so many awesome gifts from our family!

He loved his Xbox that I surprised him with!
Grammy and Grandpa spoiled little Jaden with lots of presents...
He was a happy boy!
Jaden and his Uncle Jason bonding :)
My parents in action opening up presents.

We are so grateful for all of the presents we were given and that we were able to be with family on this holiday!

New Years was also lots of fun. We went out with our good friends the Olson's and had dinner, watched a basketball game and played some games on the kinect. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pics :(
So far, 2012 has started out great! We are looking forward to all of the amazing adventures and memories to be made this year.

Until next time...
