Well, we made it 4 months ~

We tried. We made it four months without having dogs, and realized we really do enjoy them and need to have one. So I would like to introduce you to Gus. He is an AKC bred Basset Hound. He will be joining our family this weekend. Isn't he sweet? These pictures are from November 8, when he was 7 weeks old.

Time for an update ~

It looks like it's been awhile since I've visited my own blog. I do have good excuses though. I have been in full wedding planning mode. We are down to just 12 days so we are in the final planning stage. I just need to put zippers and hems in the bridesmaid dresses. They are really cute, and have all ready passed the true test of a bridesmaid dress. Kristine plans to wear hers to a dance in December. No pictures yet. You'll have to wait for after wedding posts. Rod has his suit, I have my dress. Haircut and updo appointments are made. Thanks Ronda! We just have to get final guest estimates and finalize reception food and buy ties for the guys. Jen and Trever have been busy making lots of plans, and decisions and buying a house. They close this next week, so they will have a house to move into. We are just waiting for family to get here and get the party started.

And we got to celebrate Halloween with the little girls. Alex and Michelle had a family dress up party on Friday so the little bumble bee and lady bug, AKA Kymber and Sydni went with us to the Trunk or Treat. Kristine wore her bee costume too and Kymber thought it was so fun to match. I do have pictures of that night. It turned into a nice evening considering the day started out with snow on the ground. However I do remember going trick or treating in knee deep snow many years ago, so we were lucky to have it so nice.
I love this picture of Kristine. She adds so much fun to our family!!

Kymber learned how to say "trick or treat" this year. Isn't she cute!

Sydni was one wiggly little ladybug.
