We're getting a puppy!

I know this isn't really house related, but we're getting a new puppy! He's a Rhodesian Ridgeback and he was born on November 26th, which means we get to bring him home the second week of January. We've decided to name him Dr. Jake Mata because Mario wanted a Dr. in the family, but we'll call him Jake.

Here they are on the day they were born

Here they are at a week old

This is what they'll look like when they get a little older

Here's a cute picture I found on the internet of a Ridgeback puppy

Here's a full-grown Ridgeback

Here's another

One of the mini chimineas that Mario brought back from Mexico

View from the living room

Trying to decide what to put over the tv..or should we hang the tv on the wall?

The candle thing is now in the fireplace

We bought a chair from Ikea for the desk in the study

The air hockey table we got from my stuff

The front yard is looking pretty good
