Meet Duke

The newest member of our family!
Duke was born on 9.10.09
And had us captivated at first sight...

His quiet mischievousness,
And calm, lovable personality,
Make him the perfect kitty!

Shane and I are so glad we decided to adopt little Duke...
he has been nothing but a little angel for the past 12 hours!

lots of love baby Duke...xoxo


I love the man he is...


My hubby holds many good qualities worth emulating...two of those qualities are his determination and love of hard work.
2009 has not been the easiest of years for Shane.
While working and going to school full time (which alone is hard enough) he took great care of me after my jaw surgery, feeding me, keeping track of all medications, and keeping me company while I couldn't talk or even give him one little kiss for over 8 weeks.
Soon after that tough time, Shane endured a much greater trial. During those 4 long weeks he never complained, and always kept his chin held high, looking forward to the day when he could return to work. Striving to keep his memory secure, he worked harder than ever to be the best surgical technologist he could. Despite all odds, Shane did just that. He exceeded the goal, just as he always has.
How blessed we both are Shane!
Thank you Moms and Dads for supporting and helping us through the thick and tear filled days...we owe many of our smiles to you.

Shane sometimes I look at you and can't believe you are mine.
I love you to the stars and back...a million times!
all my love, xoxo
