A fresh start

I am feeling better.  The pain is still there, but I can smile when I think about my Lilly..

That is all I am going to say about that, I realize that life goes on and I need to keep going too. :)

Here's the latest news:

1. Liam is awesome.

2. Autumn is starting to put sentences together... weird.

3. We got a new little puppy.  She is a pug, we have decided *for now* to call her Sage.

       - Charlie and I did not replace Lilly.  We just decided to add a new friend full of happiness and new beginnings.  The way we see it is, why cry alone when you can cry with a new friend?

4. I started off my "lose weight" adventure at 195 (right before I had Liam) I am now 170.  :D I feel really good and am excited to reach my goal.

please bring me needed comfort.

This is really hard.  I am only forcing myself to do this because I believe it will help this massive lump in my stomach to start to go away...

For three years, I have had a little shadow named Lilly.  She has been my constant companion and very best friend (besides my husband) since the day she was brought into my life.  She was the best dog anyone could ever ask for and I don't know if I will ever go a day without remembering her and the joy she brought into my life.  She wasn't just a dog, she was that laugh you needed when you were blue, she was the comfort I needed when I felt alone, she was our camping companion in any weather, she was my Lilly.  I love you Lilly. I always will.  Please wait for me on the other side, I promise to rub your belly for the rest of eternity if you do.

Alas, October has left us...

What an amazing week! We moved last week, it was exhausting as all get-out.... but this week made up for it completely.  Here is a picture of the cabin we moved into...

The week started off on Sunday with the annual pumpkin carve at Geoff and Kelly's house. It went awesome, I love halloween. Everyone's pumpkin looked amazing and I was pretty happy with the way mine turned out.

Here are the pumpkins:

Geoff did his usual "Caution Man" pumpkin and also threw in a one-up mushroom. Both awesome.

Charlie did this AMAZINGLY good pumpkin, he always impresses with his artistic ability.

This just make me laugh, Steve and Emily pulled out an awesome bird (which got cooked by its own candle) and, well, that the other one I don't know what to call...

Kelly made a pumpkin town, it was le super cool.

Lastly, I decided to make a scarecrow this year, I think it turned out pretty neat :).

Okay, so we carved pumpkins... what else happened.....

Oh yeah...

This boy was born! 

Yet another reason to LOVE October.  He is amazing.  I couldn't imagine a more special person than this little guy.  Autumn is at grandma and grandpa's... I can't wait for my two favorite people to meet :)

I miss my little girl so much that I think I will put a fall picture up of her too.
