December 1st the Gagon's brought a new addition to their family!! SOPHIE!! She's a Lab/German Shepherd mix 9 week puppy! Laura actually found her for us and ended up purchasing one of her brothers! Sophie is 3/4 Lab and 1/4 German Shepherd and has been sooo fun to have in our home. The girls are gettng used playing with this puppy and are actually doing really well with taking her outside and cleaning up the puppy poop. I'm just hoping that it lasts.
Our first day was very busy and fun. I think Sophie didn't know what to think. It was a hard night with her though. She cried ALL night long!! I feel bad that she misses company at night, but there's no way she's sleeping in anyones room!
This is Sophie a couple days later. She is feeling much more at home now.

Parade of Lights

December 1st was Maxine's annual work Christmas party downtown Denver. There was nice food and a Santa and Mrs. Claus to entertain the kids. Denver's Christmas parade was that night too. It wasn't too cold so it was fun to sit and watch it.
Brittany, JT, Austin, Ian, Cassie, Tori, Olivia, Dylan, Emily, Preston, Payton, and Audrey were some of the Gagon clan to line the street.

All our girls...Marcella was NOT interested in sitting on Santa's lap.


Ashley had her baby! Kathryn and her baby, Hugh and I flew out at the same time to visit and 'help'. Kathryn and I really felt like we were on a vacation though....only ONE baby to take care of!! We had to sooo much fun just sittin on the couch for almost a week chatting with eachother.

Kathryn and I shopped and cooked for the new family the whole time we were there. We just couldn't believe that there was truly a Piggly Wiggly grocery store still running!!! And the bag boy took our groceries to our car, whether we wanted help or not!!

What a cute smile!
Hugh is soo big! I can't believe how he's grown since I last saw him in July.

The most darling new family!

Olivia turns the Big 8!

Sunday, November 4th, Olivia turned 8! She requested a dolphin cake. It turned out looking great, but was it ever a pain in the neck to frost!!!

Emily Turns 6!

Emily turned 6 Saturday, November 3rd. Along with turning six, she no longer knows how to smile for a camera anymore. It's funny, her first day of kindergarten she smiled just fine... Oh well, she's still pretty darn cute!
Emily wanted a 'Rock Star' cake. It was pretty easy and fun to make and she loved it!
Here she is opening one of her presents. Emily is the biggest ham! She loves to act goofy and pull silly faces.
Since Olivia's 8th birthday was on a Sunday this year, we took her to get her ears peirced the day before. Here she is holding a light up, musical wand to try to distract her.
She did great though, and she loves that she'll be able to wear different earrings soon!
