Happy Halloween! Hope it is a spook-tacular day! 
& a very happy birthday to my mother-in-law, Nancy!

In my humble opinion, these two make the most adorable Woody and Parrot that I have ever seen. Just for a chuckle...here they are last year...

Thursday into Friday am we got about two inches of snow. The forecast is now calling for another 5-8 inches starting sometime Saturday afternoon. Welcome, Winter (even though you are a bit early)!

We took our 2nd annual trip to Indian Ladder Farms  with the Sanders family this weekend. Have you been there yet? Have you ate in the cafe? No, well what are you waiting for?

Same boy. Same park. Same time of year. Same ten fingers holding on tight.

Lots more teeth. Lots more hair. Less baby face. Lots more big boy.

Hot Air Balloon Festival at Wolf Oak Acres

time to dance


I have been sick for almost 2 weeks and today I am finally feeling better. A lot better. I have been coughing and blowing my nose and sleeping for the past two weeks. So here are some pictures that should have been put up a bit ago, but life some how got in the way.

Liam loved the show. He danced, danced and danced some more. He even got a "tour" shirt, which he insists on wearing daily. 
Getting up close and personal

'dat one!

Well worth every penny spent

Liam picked his own pumpkin this year. And he picked it right from Grandpa Bonomo's garden. He also enjoyed some fresh "matos" (aka tomatoes) from the garden. Lucky kid!   

BTW you will probably see a lot of that tee...he loves and likes to wear it...a lot.

another package

Remember when I said I love getting packages in the mail, well I do believe Liam feels the same way.
For me? Really?

So now I just need get a good hold on this corner...

And pull really hard
whoa!!! I did it!!
Liam was very happy to get his shirt.  Thanks Grandma Nan and Grandpa John!


The Mister's second go with this print. It is just as great as it was the first time around- well maybe a bit better because now it comes in kid sizes (YAY!). You should order one for yourself and then one for your little ghosties. Click here to get your order on.

Headlock  Hugs for Moe (the shark)

Oh, Orlando. We had such a great time. I think I enjoy vacations even more now that Liam is with us. To see his excitement and joy makes me even more excited. He did great on the plane down & on the way home. We fed dolphins. We swam in the ocean. Liam got to spend time with his Grandpa & Grandma (aka pata & gamma). Liam made music with the wind chimes and may have even gave Grandpa's plant a hair cut. We ate at shake & bake Steak N' Shake (btw the cookies and cream milk shake is delicious). Liam got to hang out with his super cool Aunt  Liz & Uncle Mike. We learned that Liam likes "Just Dance" for the Wii. He also got to see his cousins. We learned that A Baby's Comfort is a great rental company for kids' stuff. We enjoyed Jeremiah's Italian Ice. We always find that vacations, especially the ones that we spend with family, always go by way too fast. And I always think we take a ton of pictures, but we don't. Here are couple of my favs:
SeaWorld! Clearly something else has Liam's eye. I do love the lady in the background fanning herself. I do believe she was posing for our photo.

Shamu & Co. Liam loved this show. I loved this show. It was amazing- I wish it lasted longer.

Feeding the dolphins. Tickle Tickle on the chin and drop the fishy in.

Beach Bum. Beautiful Day!


Thank you P & M for a great vacation! The company and weather were fantastic. We had a blast and we can't wait to visit again.
