Carving Pumpkins

We carved pumpkins last weekend.

Reagan is growing so fast!!!

I am really behind on posting but first I wanted to share some new photos of Reagan as she is growing soooo fast. She has also started shedding already. I noticed the other day after holding her that I was covered in hair. :( I knew the time was coming but sure wished it was further down the road.

Reagan would love to play with Jackson. Jackson hisses and runs anytime that Reagan goes toward her but then she comes right back. I think she really does enjoy playing with Reagan.

Carter and Reagan playing with his car table.

She loves being able to look out the front windows. There is no danger of her messing up the trim by jumping up there because it NEEDS to be replaced. However so do the windows and that job will all be done at once. Anyway, she watches the bus come and go and gets so excited when she sees Riley come home.

As you can see she is getting big. She is doing great and potty training is going wonderfully. I could not imagine our life without her now :)

Dry Ice, Entertaining 4 yr old, Apple PIcking and ....drumroll please....More Reagan

Last week Matt received an order of frozen food products which was packed in dry ice. he normally plays with it at work, i.e. making fog and exploding plastic bottles, but this time brought some home to share with the kids. They loved it. They sat on the floor with the bowl blowing and blowing the "smoke" everywhere.

Carter went on his first field trip Friday. It was to a photo studio and they had their pictures taken while they were there. It was so fun Thursday night as he picked out the perfect clothes for his preschool picture. He matched his shoes to his sweater and everything! I don't have his pictures to share yet but when we got home he was showing off his outift for the camera. Very cute.
He looks so big!

Riley even got in on the action.

Yesterday we went to Crane's for some apple picking. Abby, Tim and the kids, Grandma Phyllis and the twins and Tim's sister and her daughter came along. We had a great time. They were busy and they sent us back to a new section to pick. It was nice because there was no line and only a few people back there. However, the trees were young so they were small. It almost didn't feel like we were in an orchard! But we got 50 pounds of apples and now it is time to bake.

This is where we found Reagan last night. She can sleep anywhere.

This morning she was trying to get into this basket comfortably. Last weekend she slept in this basket and as you can see she has grown so much she no longer fits :(

Abby was over and took some great shots of Reagan last weekend. I thought I would share them since she is actually awake in these photos (well some of them). She also went to the vet and is already 6 pounds. She was only 4.8 when we brought her home. It made me realize that she will grow up so fast and I love her as a puppy!!! I can tell she will be a great family dog and I certainly have no regrets about bringing her home.

Carter was in his first parade Saturday in Zeeland's Pumpkinfest. He was so excited and it was raining all day before the parade so I was worried that he would not be able to go. I had a craft show and was not able to make the parade so I am so glad Abby was able to take pictures! The boys had a great time.

Reagan is settling in

Reagan is doing great and we are having so much fun with her. We will be dogsitting for my mom's dog for the next week so it should get interesting here! The kids are really looking forward to Brutus coming over because they can take him for walks. Reagan is too little and hates her leash right now.

She finds really comfy places to sleep.
