Winnie the Pooh Dress

This was one of my FAVORITE dresses when I was a little girl and I am so happy my Mom saved it for me! Here is Erin in my Winnie the Pooh dress. Sorry for the photo...she sure is hard to get to stay still these days! :)

Gingerbread House

Connor and I had a great time making a gingerbread house for the second year in a row...I think this will become our annual tradition!


We attended Breakfast with Santa at St. Pius this year and Connor was SUPER excited to see Santa. He still did not want to sit on his lap, but did very well standing near him and talking to him. Erin wasn't a huge fan, but from the pictures below we actually got a few where she was doing quite well!

Thanksgiving Florida Trip 2011

We took our first LONG road trip with the kids to visit my parents in Florida for Thanksgiving. Although Pat and I were both slightly nervous about the drive, both kids did great and we would not hesitate to drive down again. We had a great week with Mom and Dad enjoying the pool, good food and good times!
The night we got there, we had our "Christmas" and celebrated with a yummy Italian dinner and some gifts. Both kids LOVED their gifts...the Racers Raceway and Cinderella castle were the favs!

Phineas and Ferb LIVE on Stage

Connor is turning in to such a big boy! Last Sunday night he was invited to go to see Phineas and Ferb LIVE on Stage with some boys from his preschool class at Epworth. Two other parents took all the kids and they had a blast!

Enjoy the pictures below from our 2011 Halloween activities!

We started off with a trip to Zoo Boo at the Indianapolis Zoo. The animals were VERY active and we got some great pictures of Connor's favorite animals!

Mommies favorite...the cheetahs
Connor's favorite...the warthog!

A pic of the kids at the new tiger exhibit...the tigers come RIGHT up to people viewing them. At one point Connor even jumped back as he did not know the tiger was walking up. Pretty neat.

Happy Halloween
LOVE this picture!
We always try to both kids in a picture, but Erin doesn't really like it too much!
