Molly goes to the Dentist!

Molly went to the Dentist this morning for the first time!! We had two appointments, so I went first and she watched. The hygenist was very sweet and Molly really warmed up to her. It also helps that the Dentist lives next door to us and she has met him several times. She and Sadie walk over to his yard daily and pet his dog "Georgia", so anyone that has a dog they will let Molly pet is a friend of hers! We both had a good report with no cavities. Sadie will go with us next time so that experience may be a little different :-)

Here are some pictures from the visit:

A flouride treatment--she said she looked like a duck!

So, what did we do when we got home?? What you always should do after going to the dentist--made caramel apples!! Sorry Dr. Muller, we'll brush after we eat them!

Good Times

We have been doing all kinds of fun fall activities. You know, we moved to this small town and were worried we might get bored and there might not be enough to "do"----that is NOT the case here!!!!! I have laughed and told several people that the social event calendar here is wearing me out. It's funny, we've gone from residency where we didn't have the time (much less the money) to do much of anything, to a full on packed social calendar. It's really wonderful though, we've met so many great people that we already feel like this is home.

We were re-introduced to the fair last week--and it was exactly as I remember the fair being. I haven't been to a fair in probably 20 years (wow, that makes me sound OLD). The one thing I didn't realize was how expensive it is, it made Six Flags look like a bargain. The money spent was worth every penny when I saw the sheer joy on Molly's face riding the rides. I'm not sure I've ever seen her have that much fun and I think she would've ridden every ride there if we had let her--she had absolutely no fear at all. Sadie and I would prefer to watch and she and her Daddy can ride :-)

Me and my Mini Me on the carousel (the only ride Sadie liked!)

We also have been spending alot of time outside at our house. One of the primary reasons we bought our house is because of the yard and all the outdoor living space it has and we are finally getting to enjoy it!

Today Daddy was on call so we talked Granna into coming up and joining us for the big Chili Cook off. We liked the chili (as you can see by our faces), but mostly enjoyed hanging out with Granna!

Baby Reagan is going to visit our house for the first time tomorrow and we are so excited!! We'll post more pictures after the big visit!

Sweet baby Reagan

Kasey and Josh welcomed their daughter Reagan into the world on Thursday, October 4th at 9:22 pm. She weighed 6 pounds, 4 ounces and was 19.75 inches long--she's so tiny! I love having a tiny baby to cuddle again, I am really enjoying being an Aunt. Molly and Sadie are so taken with baby Reagan, it's all they talk about--I mean, it is the first cousin they've ever had. Kasey and Josh have been very sweet and have let the girls love all over her as much as they want. She is a beautiful baby, she has a headful of medium blond hair and when she smiles in her sleep it looks like she has her Daddy's dimples. Here are some pictures of all the little princesses:

Swaddled like a burrito

Already a bulldog

Sweet cousins

Reagan is pulling at Kelly and I's heartstrings and making us wonder if we want another one. At least for now, I am going to enjoy being an Aunt and all the perks you get from not being the "Mommy"!!!
