For those of you who don't know, we have two Boxers, a boy and a girl. Well, when two dogs love each other very much they make puppies! =)

Our puppies were born Sunday in the middle of the night, so they are now 4 days old.

Picture day for Isabella

Today is Isabella's first picture day for school. The first of many to come. We woke up early to make sure we had enough time to make sure her curles were in the perfect spot. I am hoping that they will turn out well. Not thinking, I should have snapped a picture of her with my own camera. oh well!! I can't wait to share them with everyone, we ordered the biggest packege so hopefully we will have enough to go around. If not, it comes with a CD! whoo hoo!!

I found out that they do pictures in the fall and the spring... so I probably didn't need to go for the gusto package... oh well, it's her very first school picture... we are entiled to go BIG! hehehe

This past weekend we went to the lake and had a pretty good time. Isabella took some pictures on her own. She did good, by that I mean she captured every unflatering side of me she could possibly get! =)

Here are a couple pictures that are 'blog approved'!

From Anderson Cooper's CNN blog... Iraqi has a $80 billion suprlus!!!

Wow, look at me!! Two posts in one day?!?! What is wrong?!?! I must have a fever!! I just couldn't help but post this blog from Anderson Cooper's site. I can't believe that we are paying to rebuild Iraq when they have this much money just sitting there, especially while America is in a recession!!
Here is the link to this story:

Oil accounted for 94 percent of the Iraq's revenue from 2005 to 2007, a U.S. report says.
Maureen Miller360° Writer

Cha-ching! Oil revevues are making Iraq rich, very rich. According to a new U.S. audit, the Iraqi government will have a budget surplus of up to $80 billion by the end of the year due to soaring oil prices. But auditors say over the last two years, Iraq only spent $947 million dollars to pay for maintenace of roads, bridges, vehicles, buildings, water and electricity projects and weapons. At the same time, the U.S. was spending a lot of your tax dollars in Iraq. Auditors say since 2003, Congress has approved $48 billion for so-called stabilization and reconstruction efforts in Iraq. As you might imagine, some lawmakers on Capitol Hill who voted on that cash assistance are angry. Democratic Michigan Senator Carl Levin said today, “This is not rocket science. They’ve got tens of billions of dollars in surplus in banks around the world, 10 billion in American banks alone, they wrote a check to get that money into the bank, they can write a check to reimburse us for the reconstruction costs.” This may leave you asking: Why isn’t Iraq paying more? Tonight, find out why. We’re keeping them honest.

And, we’re on the trail with the latest developments in the veepstakes. Who do you think John McCain and Barack Obama will pick as their running mates? Tonight, we’ll show you some possible auditions for the job.

Plus, there are new details in the search for little Caylee Anthony. The 2-year-old Florida girl vanished in early June. Her mom is behind bars and was charged yesterday with child neglect and filing a false statement, but not with her daughter’s disappereance. Investigators say Casey Anthony didn’t report her daughter missing for more than a month. Today they took a new step in their investigation that’s made a lot of headlines. That’s in our crime and punishment report.
All that and more tonight on 360°.
Hope you’ll join us!
