And then...

Burger came home from work and banned the name Pizza. The kids and I were sad but quickly got used to Peter. Which is the name I had picked originally... But my parents and my brothers are devastated. OK, so maybe not devastated but pretty close. Maybe.

We took Peter with us to Burger's dad's to celebrate the fall festival with us. He was really great and ran around with all the kids and charmed all the adults. And he went on two hayrides with us! It was really nice to have him outside and not worry about him peeing on my rug. My one single rug in the entire house. The rest of the house is wood floors and not really that big a deal if he pees on them. But he likes the rug. Or the pile of dirty laundry in the hall. And now I'm wondering why I thought it was be a really fun idea to get myself a puppy for my birthday.

Welcoming Pizza to the Family!

I have been thinking of getting a second dog for a while now. Burger wasn't totally on the bandwagon but not totally against it. So I have been reading the swap sheep and craigslist to see what was out there. Today when I checked the swap sheet, there was lab/corgi mixed puppies for free. I had to go check that out! I have never in life seen a corgi mixed with a lab! Well, now I own one... I wanted to name him Peter but Jacob didn't like it. I asked him what he would like to name the puppy and he said Pizza. Emrick yelled out 'Peeeeeeeeeezaaaaa' making the funniest face, so the name stuck.

The kids found a caterpillar and I rushed to get my camera so I could take this picture. They sat and watched the caterpillar do absolutely nothing for a good 3-5 minutes. It was really fun!
We haven't been doing a whole lot of anything lately. Burger is working a lot and I'm just trying to keep up with the kids, laundry, and dishes. Jacob still loves school. I joined the school's PTO. I have no idea what PTO stands for but they have meetings once a month and vote on things. Actually, we vote on everything. I figured it was a good way to have my say in the happenings at the school and be more involved.

New Phones!

Burger and I got new phones on Thursday, which also happened to be our 4th anniversary! I picked out the phones and got us each the same one. It was a touch screen and I used it for just a few hours before realizing that there was no way I could use that phone for two whole years. So on Friday I took mine back and picked a different one. Now I have a full keyboard for texting and that makes my life a bit easier!

Jacob has been busy busy in school and yesterday he was practicing writing his numbers. He likes practicing his numbers! Last Tuesday we went to Chuck E. Cheese for Jacob's school fundraiser and had a lot of fun. Jacob played with some friends from school there and we all love Chuck E. Cheese!

I can't believe it's October already! I love the month of October. My birthday and Halloween. Sweatshirt weather! I bought Emrick some new sweatpants today and that was fun. Jacob took a pumpkin to school and we put some out on the porch, too. The trees are all changing colors and everything looks beautiful. We have been trying to enjoy the weather change and are still getting used to Jacob being in school.
