Carving the pumpkin

I got to help Daddy carve my first pumpkin this week!

So, where do we start?

Uh huh....I see....

Let me try!

How am I doing??

The Puppies are cheering me on!

I need to really get in there to get this job done!

So this is what's inside! Cool!

The finished product!

This is Jack, all lit up!

Here I am in my Halloween bib that Ryan's parents bought me last year, right before I came home!

Lastly, a video of me in action! Happy Halloween - Be sure to check back for pictures of me in my costume!

One Year as a Family!!

Today marks one year since the day I was placed in Momma and Daddy's arms. Momma said she can't believe it's been a whole year, but I feel like I have been here forever! To celebrate, we watched the video of our first meeting....boy, was I little!

Momma holding me for the first time!

Daddy holding me for the first time!

The ride from TWCA back to Taipei - I am happy to be with my parents!

Our first picture as a family....

Today as a family (Momma still likes the striped shirt!)

Here I am, one year later! Momma and Daddy said I am as cute as ever!

Last weekend, when the weather was still nice, I helped Daddy do some yard work. Here I am with my broom...

This sure is a big pile of leaves....

I better use two brooms!

Collecting acorns, after the sweeping was done...

While I was working, Zippy was chasing moles...I think she found one!

After such a busy day, I went back inside to relax and catch the game...

Not only have I been collecting acorns during daylight hours, I have also been out after dark filling my bucket...there's a lot of work to be done before winter hits!

Look at what I found...what is it?? This is too big to be an acorn....

On a different note, last weekend we went to visit some friends. They have TWO (not one, but TWO) Welsh Corgis...I like being surrounded by dogs (especially when they are little, like me)!

More pics..

Momma went out of town on business this week. I helped her with her bags.

...then I waved good-bye! Momma was sad!

When Momma came home, she said I looked like I had turned into a teenager while she was gone!

This is just a cute close up of me (I was trying to charm Momma into giving me the worked! - See below).

Finally, this is a picture I took of myself (see above). Momma said the picture shows how beautiful my eyes are!

Exciting News and then some

Momma and Daddy found out this week that they have been approved to adopt through TWCA in Taiwan again! Yippee! I will have a sister in another one or two years. The first packet of paperwork was sent out this week, as well.

Momma and Daddy said waiting for this adoption will be easier, because they have me to keep them busy...they ain't kidding!

Here are some shots of me doing exactly that (keeping them busy)!

One of my newly discovered favorite things to do is ride in the Radio Flyer wagon that Aunts Shar and Kim bought me for Christmas. I barely fit in it, but it doesn't stop me from having fun! Here I am two weeks ago, before the weather became more fall-like...

Speaking of favorites, I also recently discovered Chocolate Chip Pancakes at First Watch. Even the leftovers were great, although they left a chocolate mess on my face!

All done!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes....good! Gourd - not so good!

Move aside, I'm coming in for the touchdown!

Hanging with the guys...I mean, gourds....

Reading with Grandpa ...

Wearing Grandpa's hat! I look good in it!

Sneaking up on Granny!
