Cubs brother

Mark and I got our puppy Cub (she's the multi-colored spotted one) from the St. Francois Society, they have adoptions every Sunday at the PetSmart in South County. We have had her for about 5 months and we wanted to take her up there and show her off. We went up there and hung out with the nice ladies for awhile then went inside to Cub a few new toys, shes rather spoiled. When we were walking out one of the ladies says oh well their is Charlies sister. Charlie was one of Cub's litter-mates and his parents brought him back, not sure why but they did. It broke my heart to see them sniffing and playing with each other and then to have to walk away and leave him there. I did however get a few pictures of them together. I just hope someone who has enough love and time for him adopts him because Cub has been a great addition to our lives and I know Charlie would be too. They had the same little quirks and attitudes, if I could have him he would have been home with me.

Mark and I went to Eckert's on Sunday and picked apples and pumpkins. We had a great time!
They have a pumpkin cannon which is freaking awesome and Pig races, seriously how awesome is that!! I didn't get pictures of any of that but I got some of our pumpkins and
the pretty scenery.


Sorry all for being so boring nothing much has been going on. I started a new job, every Sunday night I go over to a lady from my church house and take care of her mom who has alzheimers while she is at work. I get there at 6pm and leave around 8 the next morning. I get $10 an hour to sit and talk to this lady and watch TV and sleep. The lady is sooo sweet and she isn't too far into the disease yet. I am going to start going at 6pm-10:30pm on Saturday nights starting the second week of November too. And whenever she needs me during the week. Its a pretty sweet deal adn it doesn't interupt my studying. Mark is a little upset because it takes away a few hours of our time together, but he will get over it!

As you saw we got the pictures back I was talking to his Dad and saying how I liekd the ones at the Muny best, they were the last ones we took and you could tell we just relaxed and started having fun with them. So he wants to take more! Thats right there will be more pictures, they will either be when he is in town for Thanksgiving or Christmas, I can't wait!!!! They were so much fun!

I'm heading out to Marks tomorrow and we might be going to a homecoming even at Columbia Friday night, not sure we'll see if he wants to go. This weekend is the Applebutter festial in Kimswick and I can't wait I haven't been able to go in like 6 years because of school, until then I had never missed it. And then Saturday night is a bonfire at a friends house, maybe. If so I will take plenty of pictures. Oh we went to Eckerts on Sunday, I will do another post in a little bit with my pictures!

FINALLY!!! The pictures!

I got our engagement pictures from Mark's Dad on Friday, I LOVE them! I was worried for nothing. There were a few with weird faces but nobody needs to see those and there are more than enough that I really like! I'm so happy we did these and that we had such a fun time doing them. Be forewarned there are a lot of pictures in this post and they are kinda jumbled because blogger doesn't let you organize the photos when you upload only after and frankly I just don't feel like doing that now. Enjoy and leave me bunches of comments about them!!

Mark and I had out pictures taken Sunday by his dad. We had alot of fun with it, even though there were some heated temps along with the high temps. But we all calmed down and ended up having a great time! We took some pictures around the lake at Tower Grove Park in the "old building ruins" then we went over to Forrest Park. We took pictures around the fountain in front of the Worlds Fair Pavilion and then we went and changed and then took some pictures with us staning in the water fall there! We had Cub with us and she was in some of out pictures. After that we went over to the Muny and took some pictures around the gaxebo there and around the box-office. My parents also came out and watched us take some of the pictures.

After we finsihed with pictures Mark and i took Cub home and dropepd her off then met up with his parents, my parents and his uncle and his wife for dinner at Texas Roadhouse. It was the first time I have met his uncles wife and my parents have met her or his uncle. It was great that they were all in town and we got to spend time together.
