Another addition to the family

This weekend we received into our home a new member of the Sweeney family. Believe it or not, we've been expecting him for a while, some more anxiously than others.

He's a big boy, so I call him Elvis. He bumped Archie out of the spotlight and, to tell you the truth, he's going to take some getting used to. Let me give you a little glimpse:

And another glimpse:

I think my husband might bring a sleeping bag down and stay out in the office for a few nights, just to make Elvis feel at home. Notice he's in the office because that is the only place we agreed upon other than the garage!!! Notice... eight foot ceilings, not really fit for taxidermy.

Here's Kenyon's view from his desk chair. What a work day!

Archie is the antelope that was hanging in Elvis' spot. He was moved to the right of Elvis, but I didn't really have the patience to wait around to take a picture.

Welcome home Elvis!

We propose that you drill some holes in the ceiling for the tips of the antlers so that Elvis can hang a little higher off the floor!!!

WOW! Elvis looks great. And what a good wife to agree to a wall "in the house". Points for you!

Albert and I are dying laughing right now! Can't wait to see Elvis in person.

Oh my word. I'm such a city girl. I thought it was a cow. But then, who would put a cow head in their house?

oh laurie, you just made Jeremy's day. He loves to see that elk up on the wall! You deserve a medal for having that in the house! You are a good wife : ) Looks good Kenyon!
