This is Autumn and Kaleb, Dustin and Jennifer’s daughter and son. Autumn was the first grandchild in the family and the first niece. I had become an uncle and it was fun having new people in the family. I remember holding both of them in the hospitals, excited to have a niece and a nephew. It has been fun watching them grow up and it is incredible that they are this big already. They are both very smart kids. They are very ornery and funny (I wonder who they get if from), and they are great kids. I love the both of them and I can’t wait to see what they grow up to be.
This is Hemi (after Hemingway, not the engine). She’s part border-collie, part lab. Or at least that’s what we think she is. She’s a rescue dog that Hillary (Hannah’s sister) and Josh (Hillary’s boyfriend) adopted. She’s a sweet little dog, and still very puppy. She’s very playful and can be a little shit at times. For now she’s staying with Hillary, while Josh is in Colorado and it’s been fun playing with her. Today she let me take her picture.
This is Sampson. Our 135 lb. St. Bernard. He’s a little over three years old, but he still acts like a puppy. A very big puppy. He’s a big, goofy dog, with a lot of personality. I’ve never had a dog quite like this. He’s very ornery and stubborn and loud. But he’s a good guard dog and very playful. He can be annoying at times, but it’s hard to stay mad at him with his cute face.
This is Felix. He is our new baby kitten at my Dad’s house. He’s only 8 weeks old. He’s an adorable little guy and a very ornery little kitten. I got to see him for the first time tonight. He was pretty fun to play with and it was definitely a challenge when I decided I wanted to shoot him for today’s picture. This guy would not stand or sit still and even my 12f/s shutter was having a hard time keeping up with him. Eventually I got this shot as he sat still for a second before attacking our other cat MJ, who was not pleased. He’s a little upset that he’s not the center of attention right now, though he doesn’t mind the little guy too much. I think they’ll get along and Felix will end up being a good cat.
