To blog or not to blog

Well, now that we have little Miss Kaitlyn, I'm going to try this blog thing so friends and family far and wide can keep up with her progress. I may even document what's going on with Brent and I as a bonus. I can't imagine people would get bored reading about Kaitlyn, but just in case they do, I'll be prepared.

As a general overview, the Shoups are a very busy family. Brent is in the Army full time for another year, Kelly's working as a Business Analyst for CGI, and everybody revolves around Kaitlyn - which is as it should be.

Family Members:
Brent - husband, dad extraordinaire
Kelly - wife, mom of the year
Kaitlyn - smartest baby in the whole wide world
Mischief - Queen B of the household aka 15 lb cat
Rascal - Mischief's sister and runner up for the biggest baby in the house
Sunshine - OMG, best dog EVAR...also diabetic
Noelle - craziest puppy I've ever known; first foster failure
Valentino - T boogie! Foster dog #1
Gordon - aka Gortino (so dubbed by dad). Not much to say about him other than the fact that he eats poop. He's not picky, he'll eat anybody's poop. It makes cleaning up the back yard a lot easier.

I can go on and on about our interests, but I should probably save that for another time. At least now, my blog has a foundation. Let's see how well I do keeping up with it.
