Their best buddy Olivia, whom they have grown up with, is moving to the coast in a few days. So today we picked her up for lunch and playtime at Chick-fil-a. At the moment, they have the play area all to themselves and are having a great time. This may be their last opportunity to hang out before the big move. It has been a joy watching their relationship grow and change. Here's to hoping they are lifelong friends despite this move or any future ones.

Howling Halloween at East Regional Library

Jonah changed from a knight, to Darth Vader, and then settled on Safari boy before leaving the house. I guess the safari clothes were more comfortable. Elisabeth was a princess, of course.

Photo of the Day

I'm not sure what it is about this picture that I like so much but I do. This was taken over a year ago while on our first cruise. The kids are on deck enjoying the blustery sea breezes and the novelty of being on such a huge boat.

What an Imagination

We are on a Mommy-son date at the mall and Jonah is eating French fries.
He says, "Can you use ketchup to put out fires?"
Me: "Well, I'm not sure. It's probably not as effective as water.
Jonah: "I know! Aliens spray out ketchup on fires."

Silly me :-)

A New Princess Costume

I scored a good deal on a two retired recital dresses that I found on Craigslist. They both have some minor flaws but the sparkle factor made them worth the money I paid. Elisabeth is super excited about dressing up for Halloween- she wants Jonah to be a knight - we'll see if he goes along with it!

Kid Conversations

Elisabeth: "Can we take this?" referring to her plush ballerina doll.
Me: "Sure."
Elisabeth: "Her name is Cinder."
Jonah: "CINDER! You should call her Cinderella."
Elisabeth: "I call her Cinder."
Jonah: "Cinderella is a more pretty name.  Cinder is a beaver name."

Hmmm..... Beaver name?!  That's a new one ;-)

A Fall Camping Trip

We took the RV to the mountains this past weekend. We had a lovely time and really enjoyed the fall colors. I forgot to take the big camera, but found it nice to not have the distraction. I did manage to
take this picture with my phone.

Everybody Loves Rock'n Roll

For those days when only a little Aerosmith or 
Def Leppard will do.

She Loves Dressup

She wore this outfit several day in a row recently - note the stain on the front.

Photo of the Day

In order to keep this blog active during those busy season's of life, I'm going to simply post a picture that I love.  I could be recent or old.
