Jeff Dunham

My brother loves Jeff Dunham! He has all his videos now(just got 2 for christmas from my parents). He has really got me hooked on him. He is pretty funny! For those of you that don't know who Jeff Dunham is, I will help clue you in. He is a ventiliquist, he has several puppets. First there is my favorite, Peanut, he is a purple woozle. My second favorite is, Achmed the Dead Terrorist. He also has Melvin, the super hero, Bubba J, the redneck, Jalepeno on a stick and Walter. I love Peanuts laugh and Achmed's famous saying "I Kill You."
So for Christmas this last year, My sister-in-law surprised us with tickets for his upcoming show. The show was this last Thursday, Jan 22nd. I was looking forward to this show ever since the day that I found out we were going. It was sooo much fun!! I've heard most of the jokes before, but you still laugh at them. Love his whole act, even guitar guy (he's his opening act). It was a really fun evening! Thanks Jerry and Shauna!!!
I will include a link to his web page incase you would like to check out more of him.

Sorry its been so long.....

Things have been so busy lately around the enman household. I haven't had a chance to update the blog lately. Sorry!
Well just a quick update on the puppy. She is growing like a weed! She is now about 13 weeks old. She has grown about 3 or 4 inches since we got her. I officially think she has a sock fettish. Everyday, every chance she gets she is bringing us socks. She loves to snuggle. She always has to lay right next to you when she is on the couch. She esspecially likes to get up behind you before you lean back on the couch and get comfortable and go to sleep. Its been fun to have her around. We have our good days and bad days. However we don't regret getting her. She is such a good addition to the family.

Update on Bailey

Well despite the few accidents that we have had. We still love Bailey just as much, if not more as the day we got her. She is having fewer accidents in the house. She is getting the idea that she is suppose to be going outside to go potty. Abby is even beginning to like her around. She plays with her a little more everyday. Bailey doesn't whine much when we put her in her kennel at night to sleep now. She is so much fun to have around! She just adds so much more excitement to the house. She loves to play with anything or anyone. (Typical puppy I guess.) I even noticed that she is starting to enjoy her food a little more. She doesn't scarf it down like she is starving to death.

Carl and the girls measured her on the wall the first day that we got her to watch how much and how fast she grows. She has already grown 1/2 an inch in 4 days. That is amazing!

This afternoon we Barbequed steaks on the grill. Yes that is right. Nothing will stop us from grilling, not even a little bit of cold weather. It was only 18 degrees this afternoon, and that was the high! Sorry I did not get pictures of carl out at the barbequer. So our thought was that after we had dinner and watched a movie, we would make smores on the grill. Its really easy as long as you have foil and a hot grill. Well by the time Carl got back from the store with the graham crackers the grill was no longer hot, and I realized I was out of foil and didn't have him buy any. So we opted to try to make the smores in the oven. I put the graham crackers on a baking sheet. I then placed the chocolate on top of the cracker and placed a marshmellow on top of that. We put them in the oven on broil high, and watched them cook!
When you take them out you smash the top cracker on top of them and let them cool for just a few minutes. They turned out perfect!!

They are still just as messy, but taste just as good!

We even got Cheyenne to eat one! She usually opts to have the smore not cooked and separated on a plate. She didn't finish it though. She got really messy and decided that she was done with it. Nothing that a little stain remover won't fix! I hope.......

Bath Day!

Today was bath day for the two dogs. This was the first bath that we have given Bailey since she has been with us (a whole 3 days now). Carl said he kindof had to hold her in the tub as you can see in the picture above.(She didn't really like it very much.) Carl dried her with a towel and she just kept licking herself. She would do her cute little pouncing at us in the kitchen, but she didn't really run all around like abby does. Abby loves the bath though! She feels much better after the bath. She runs all over the house excited and trying to shake herself dry. It was fun and eventful right before church this morning. Now both of the dogs smell very nice!

Meet Bailey!

Meet Bailey!!

Isn't she adoreable! Last night Carl was looking online and saw this cute little puppy on ksl for free. No we were not actually looking for another dog. But we really felt that it was just meant to be in our family. She is a 10 week old, German Shorthaired Lab. They are considered a hybrid dog. She currently looks like a minature Abby.

So far she is very obedient. We have had a very good start on the potty training so far. She whines alot when she is put in her kennel. I don't think she likes it very much. She will have to get use to it though. She is fun to have so far! She has adapted to the family very quickly.
