Pretty and Cute Overload

I love the Fall.  Cooler weather, rain, and the changing colors.    Kim and I went out to Sauvie Island one day last week.  We brought home a pumpkin to try our hand at cooking it and making pie.  I got it cooked up, but was gone all weekend so the pie hasn't been made.  Tomorrow, we will have pumpkin pie.  

The trees in our neighborhood are spectacular.  We went for a drive way out in the country today and saw more beautiful trees, but didn't get pictures of them, we got other pictures instead, which you will see below the trees.  :)

Around December 6, this little gal will come home to live with us and be Kim's dog.  She is a Red Merle Mini-Australian Shepherd.  Kim is stuck on a name.  She thought she wanted a dog name Guienevere (or however it is spelled), but when Kim say her pink nose, she thinks Rose might fit better.  We have 6 weeks to come up with something that will fit this little one.  We will be going out to see her again in two weeks, then a couple of more times after that. 

The puppies in the basket are a few weeks older from a different litter.  Cute, but not exactly what Kim wanted. 

John took a liking to her sister sibling.  If only we could afford two purebreds right now.

Thank you from my dad

I talked to my dad tonight on the phone. He is extremely appreciative and wants to thank all of you for saying prayers for him and sending good thoughts. Thank you! He is doing well at home, eating more, navigating the house with either his cane or walker. He sounded good. I couldn't hear his lip "lisp" when talking to him, but did notice it on the message machine earlier. I am so glad he is home and doing well. They are still limiting visitors because it just wears him out. He wants to go to church this weekend, but I told him he needs to be really careful, especially with all the colds and flu out there. And my mom has to play the service so she can't keep an eye on him and keep folks from wearing him out. I advised him not to go this time, but I am sure he will be there anyways. ;)

Another Dad Update!!

Woohoo, Dad's going home tomorrow. He is walking by himself and navigating stairs. Hopefully he will be home in time for lunch. Thursday he sees his regular neurologist and maybe they can figure out what's going on with his lip and if it is Bell's Palsy or not. Thank you so much for all of the prayers and good thoughts. Now I almost wish we lived in CA so I could be closer to help out more.
