Big, Medium and Small

This is the puppy I got my husband for his birthday in August. The top picture is her about a week ago. I think she is about 20lbs or a little more. She is a German Shephard/Yellow Lab so I know she is going to be a big dog, but I am still amazed at how fast she is growing. I think she gains a couple pounds a week.
The second picture I took in September when she is sitting on the picnic table. Isn't that the cutest thing.
The last two pictures are from when I surprised my husband with his birthday present. His face first registered shock and then he got this big goofy grin on his face. Her name is Lady and she was only 8 weeks when I got her and only weighed 8lbs.
So she is not even 4 months old yet and is so big. She really gives new meaning to the saying Growing Like a Weed. I shouldn't complain because she is a really good dog and very smart. She is doing very good with going potty outside too. She hardly ever has an accident.

Baby Shower Gifts

I made this cute album with Close to my Heart's Animal Cookie Level 2 Paper Pack. I then wrapped the album up in tissue paper and put it in this Display Box. They are having a boy but this would work for either a boy or girl I think. She really liked it when I gave it to her. I just love giving gifts that people really enjoy. I also know that nobody else gave her this gift. :)

The Great Pumpkin Patch

I love going to the Great Pumpkin Patch. We go every year. I enjoy it as much as my son does. Our Pumpkin Patch was visited by Martha Stewart's people. She even had one of the owners on her show and they did a big magazine spread on it. It is fun to look at all the different Pumpkins and squashes. They even were selling seeds this year so I bought my husband some. He is going to grow them this spring so we just may have our own tiny pumpkin patch next year.

The last picture is of the largest pumpkin which weighs 901 pounds. Wow!!! We even got to do the wagon ride this year. I can't wait to go again next year.
