A few posts ago I told everyone what I got Joey for Christmas which was a DOG!! Well last week Joey brought him home. He is a seven week old Chocolate Lab. It was great because the breeder we got him from also had the mother and father of our Dog.

We named him Wrigley although the name isnt orginal we love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Wrigley sleeping he does this alot!

Hope you enjoyed all the pictures above. . . .. Joey is in heaven with Wrigley and I have to admit I am starting to really like him as well!

Last week Joey's brother Mikey came to Davenport to stay for the week. We really had a fun week of staying up late watching movies, eating junk food and just hanging out. (not to mention our trip Chi-Town)
I am an only child so I always like to watch the interaction between siblings. I have always watched friends with brothers and sisters and my mom with her brothers in such amazement of the bond that exists between siblings.
I decided to write this for my blog after Mikey left for the week because it really gave me a chance to reflect on Joey and Mikey's relationship.

The first thing I noticed was LAUGHTER. I have never heard those two boys laugh so much than this past week. They could say one liners from movies all night long to each other.

The next thing I noticed was this amazing bond. We talked a lot about their childhood and it was interesting to hear them reflect on the memories they had and their interpretation of situations.

One of the most important things that I saw between them was the impact they have on each other. Mikey pushes Joey, Joey pushed Mikey, Mikey pushed Joey, Joey pushed Mikey.
Truly they do they want each other to be the very best that they possibly can be and they are helping each other get there every step of the way.

Joey asked Mikey to be his best man over Thanksgiving and for those of you that know me I CRIED! but truly I now know why Mikey is THE BEST MAN! Now.

I feel so lucky to have caught a glimpse of their relationship and can only pray that if I am blessed with more than one child they can have a strong unconditional bond like Mikey and Joey.

Last week Joey's brother Mikey came for a week long visit. I will be posting more on this later but first I must cover our big event of the week:


What fun we had Enjoy the pictures!

When I got home from work the day of the game Mikey surpised me with a Duke shirt to wear to the game. I have been a Duke fan for a long time since my I watched college basketball with my mom. I know it was hard for Mikey to but that tshirt but i was awfully grateful.
The boys in front of the Michael Jordan statue!!!!

The game was awesome the last time I was in the United Center was for the Janet Jackson conernt. We were pretty happy with our seats, I wish I could of gotten a better picture of Coach K who I adore but was unable to do so. It was a great game. Duke started off on a hot streak but the Cyclones powered back and kept it a close game through the 3rd quarter but the BLUE DEVILS pulled away with the WIN and needless to say I was the only happy camper in the car on the way home!! Way to make me proud BLUE DEVILS!
