Happy Halloween. I love this time of year. The leaves are changing and the air is crisp. It warmed up today so the girls can wear their cute dresses without coats. I love taking the kids trick or treating and then coming home to watch a movie and go through their (our) booty. The girls love handing out candy and seeing all the kids dressed up. This year, as a special treat, we are going trick or treating on boats at the marina, tomorrow night. I think that will be a lot of fun.
The one thing I miss since becoming a "grown up" is the annual WV Halloween party. We used to make it back but now there are too many kiddies to leave behind. It is just such a party where I first met my good friend Tracy and so Happy Anniversary to us. In the interest of protecting our ages I will not say how many, many, years ago that was. Today I will eat grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch!
I hope everyone has a safe and happily haunted night!

Hannah's Birthday

Hannah had her third birthday party on Sat, Oct 12th. She wanted a princess theme. My mother in law went all out and even bought her a pinata. I baked her cake myself and was very proud of it. She had two little friends there plus the grandparents and a couple of close family friends. Tristan video taped it and was proud of his work. She had a great time and loved all her presents. Mostly dress up clothes and Dora dolls. It was a nice time for all who attended. I just can't believe she is three already. My little girls are growing up so fast. Soon she will be off to school and our days together will grow shorter. This is such a precious time I am so thankful that I get to stay home with her. I just hope Madeline and I can handle the quiet, calm days that will be on us sooner than we would like.

Tracy Inspiration

I have been inspired by my friend Tracy's weekly writings to start a blog of my own. I look forward to reading her's so much that I though perhaps others would want to keep up with us as well. I am not sure how good I will be at keeping this up but I will try. Mostly I will use it to keep my friends updated on the family craziness. I am not sure I am brave enough to put my deep thoughts on the internet. Also, I have these little monkeys running around the house that make typing in any kind of peace nearly impossible. Anyway, hi everyone and here we go.
