Fashion Show

While enjoying an evening of Gingerbread House decorating,
Molly decided to do some dress up.
Usually, playing dress up is so NOT Molly...
When she came out with the wig,
I figured I had seen all of her dressing up for the evening.
But I was wrong.
Which one do YOU like best?
Outfit #1...
Outfit #2...
Outfit #3...
Outfit #4...Outfit #5...
Outfit #6...
Outfit #7...
Dressing up, it seems, is much more fun when
you have a "big kid" friend to help you.
And to share their old dance costumes with.
Thank you, Christina!
(Christina was also sweet enough to give Molly a few
outfits to take home).

We had another yummy Thanksgiving dinner with our family!
I tried to get a decent picture of my kids...
This was it...
When I told them to make a silly face,
this is what I got:
We have so much to be thankful for!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Full of Thanks....

So, so, thankful.
For my sweet, sweet, son.

Fall Trip

One of the first things we ended up doing in Ohio last month,
was having lunch at the Olive Garden and then doing the
bungee jump at the mall.
You know, just so the kids felt at home and all.
Jack perfected his flips.
Molly just worked on her overall form.
An Ohio first for us, we also went to the
Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
It was a pretty cool place,
with lots to look at.

Jack was THRILLED to learn that Balto was at the museum.
He just finished reading the novel in class,
and it was fun to watch him enjoy the exhibit (and gift shop section dedicated to Balto!).

I wanted to photograph ever "fall" moment I could...

Saturday finally came, and it was time for Meghan and Joe's wedding.

Molly was able to spend lots of time with "her" Becky.

The kids danced and danced and danced...
We stayed late celebrating with the newlyweds!

While our summer trip is longer,
it was wonderful to go back and experience "fall".
More importantly, to be there with our niece
and her new husband as they start their new life together.

Happy Halloween!

We got home on Monday afternoon,
after a great trip to Ohio for niece Meghan's wedding!
(More pictures of that later!)
Came home, carved pumpkins, ordered pizza, got dressed,
and went out for some trick or treating!
Jack really wanted Angry Bird jack-o-lanterns.
Molly designed the one on the right.

Jack's costume is from Bakugan. It's a dragon of some sort.
Molly INSISTED on being SuperWhy!

She also insisted on NOT wearing the mask to trick or treat.
I insisted on at least ONE picture with it on.

The kids had a good time,
but, we really tired after flying home.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
