Yesterday my dear sweet husband surprised the kids and I with "an early Christmas present", like I couldn't see this one coming. We are now the proud parents of a 6 week old Dachtsund/Lab mix puppy that after much deliberation have named Harley (he's low to the ground and makes a LOT of noise). Of course the kids love him, Ginger is happy to have a playmate to drag around and I have something else to take care of. He is pretty cute...... See the excited look on my face? That is one that won't be getting any sleep for at least a week.

Taylor lost his first tooth on Saturday after it was loose for a really long time. The tooth next to it is very loose as is two of his front teeth. The tooth fairy brought 75 cents on Sunday morning and Taylor put it directly in his piggybank, my good little saver! I can't believe how different he already looks, and will look after he starts getting his permanent teeth in there.

On October 28th, my family lost a dear young man, my cousin Dan. Ever since I can remember, our families have gathered together, and I have so many fond memories of playing with my cousins: Kate, Sarah, Dan & Becky. His heart stopped beating in his sleep from complications of a heart condition and he was only 25. We are all so sad and will miss such a funny, good hearted and awesome son, brother, cousin, nephew and friend.

Taylor is very proud of his Cub Scout uniform-so handsome!

This is Hannah and her favorite stuffed animal-her elephant katie. Katie goes everywhere with us and we even have to set a plate at mealtimes for her. Pretty funny.

I'm a little late getting these photos up of my Care Bear and Knight. Aren't they cute?
