Happy holidays from our family to yours.
After 30 years (including making the World Series last year), the Royals finally won another championship!
We are so, so, so proud of our Royals. They are just a lot of fun to watch, partially because you can tell that they like each other and they are genuinely having fun.
Here’s to hoping it won’t take another 30 years to take the crown.
Meet Cain, the newest member of our family.
We took the plunge and adopted a black lab/retriever mix. He’s 1.5 years old and seems to be a real sweetheart. He came from another shelter so we don’t know what his original circumstances were. We looked at all the dogs that the shelter considered to be good with other dogs and kids and “Donald” seemed to fit in best with the kids and Mac.
The name Donald didn’t seem to fit him so we changed it to Cain, after my favorite Royals player, Lorenzo Cain. With the Royals in the playoffs, it seemed right to name him after one of them. Cain’s nickname is 1738. The Royals had a joke this year. They had to use “1738” in their interviews. If they didn’t, they fined each other. You can read why in these two articles:
