Puppy Update...

Poor Yvette has a had a rough go at it as a first time mother. She whelped 8 puppies on October 8, but unfortunately 4 of them died :( They think she actually whelped a few days early-- the puppies were really little and just not strong enough to survive. The 4 that are left are almost 3 weeks old and doing great-- so is Yvette! Their eyes just opened and they are starting to run around & play with each other a bit. They have all been named-- CCI assigns a letter to each litter and Yvette's litter was an "R" litter. So the names are Raisen, Rory, Revenue & Rhone. They really are adorable-- it is a good thing that we don't have the option to keep any of them!

Fleet Week 2009

Savannah and Dad went to the City for Fleet Week 2009 to see the Blue Angels. We were all supposed to go, but unfortunately Dylan was up all night the night before with an ear infection. So... Mommy & Dylan stayed home and went to the doctor & slept, while Savannah & Daddy got to spend a special day together.

Fall is Here...

This weekend the weather really cooled down.... Fall is finally here! We took a trip to the pumpkin patch -- one of my very favorite Fall activities! We always get some great pictures & the kids have a blast running around. This year was no different...

I have no idea what is up with the face, but for some reason she thought it was really cool, because I have at least 3 pictures of with the exact look?!
