For Christmas this year we surprised ( I mean really surprised!) our boys. Jeff picked up the dog from the breeder Christmas Eve when the boys were asleep. Oakley slept in our bedroom that first night so the kids wouldn't hear him. In the morning Jeff went down by the Christmas tree first and then the boys came down. Once they hit the stairs and looked over the railing the look on their faces was priceless. Ethan said, "Did we REALLY get a dog?" Like it was a stuffed animal or something. Too cute. Oakley is a German Wire-haired Pointer (a bird dog).
