Friendsgiving and my new niece!!!


I had a vision of what holidays would be.

I always thought that there would be

gleeful children running through the house squealing with laughter

adults with wine in their glasses and smiles on their faces.

Not that our holidays are bad it's just that

it's not what I had imagined.

So when all else fails create a new tradition.

Last weekend we had our closest friends over with their children.

We had a potluck.

I provided the turkey and our friends provided the trimmings.

Wine and gleeful squealing was bountiful.

So bountiful indeed that I set my camera down and could not find it.

But here is the crew that provided plenty of squealing.

My friend Monica was supposed to come

but, well she was otherwise engaged in a more important endeavor.

Baby Kaya Simone is here

and true perfection.

I am so excited I get to be her Auntie, and Lily

is taking her big cousin duties very, very seriously.

Welocome to the world baby girl.
I am so happy you are here and healthy and a girl!
I can't lie I was hoping for a girl and so was Lily pie.

Lily started off our Halloween festivities

by making sure that Wally was not

left out of the festivities.

I am sure he appreciated wearing the Lily flower costume.

We headed down to our favorite neighborhood

and joined some of our favorite people.

It was once again an extremely enjoyable evening.

Great company

an amazing warm October night

adorable kids and candy!

See, I mean, really


And perhaps a little smelly :0)

the woopie cushion was resurrected.

Trick or Treat

Can you believe our parents won't carry our candy?



Some sillies after candy!!!
Tink is just so very scary :0)

6 Year portraits

For my mom's birthday Lily got her picture taken.

My parents have begged,

Some may even say badgered me

to grow out Lily's hair.

After seeing Rapunzel Lily wanted long hair.

So their wish was granted.

Of course my daughter has her own way of doing everything.

So, now she has long hair but,

will only wear her hair one of two ways.

1 bun or 2.

Which kinda defeats the purpose of having really long hair


she most likely won't get lice in Kindergarten :0)

So the point to this really long story is that I made Lily wear her hair down

for Nonnie's birthday present.

I got her to do this willingly by telling her that

after she got her picture taken my way

we could put her hair up and take her picture in her Princess Tiana costume.

I think the pictures turned out fantastic but,

Boy is my baby girl a big girl NOW!!!
