On Sunday my family was whispering behind closed doors, making private phone calls and all three jumped in the truck and left the house together for the second day in a row. I KNEW they were doing or planning “something” for my birthday, but I just couldn’t figure out what!

I enjoyed the piece and quiet while I tapped away on my laptop getting all of these fun Giveaways ready for all of my sweet readers!

After several hours I hear the truck pull into the driveway, and then lots of noise as they came through the front door.

I hear “MOM?” …..I was in my office. The three of them walk into my office with Allison holding what I thought was a wadded up blanket…..“Happy early Birthday!”

She hands me the blanket while I curiously look to see………

Cullen at 9 weeks old.  He's a "full size" yorkie and should grow to be about 10-12 pounds

*for all of you NON Twilight fans {gasp} – that’s the vampire family’s name

So needless to say, my world has been turned upside down for the last few days!LOL

Remember that new Flip Video I mentioned that I won a few weeks ago?

Well, now I can show you VIDEO of Cullen! LOL

Here’s a little clip of him playing with me in the kitchen.

Every time I would say “what?” he would bark

– but once I got the camera out I was saying “what” a little more than he was! LOL
