A very good year

The title speaks for itself; these are just a few of the highlights from 2009. Here's to an equally great 2010! Happy New Year!

Date Night

Twice a year, Scott and I have the privilege of having an overnight date; this year, we went to Boston. I finally had an occasion to dress up in my 15 inch heals (oh the price we pay for fashion). We had a great time and had an awesome meal at the Atlantic Fish Co. If you're ever looking for great seafood in Boston, this is your place! As always, our time away from the ball and chain, I mean our adorable daughter, went quickly. A special thanks to my mom, dad, and Gayle for putting up with her while we gallivanted! We're already looking forward to our next excursion!

Ho Ho Ho


Rumor has it that if you stick your hand inside Santa's shirt, he'll bring you everything you've asked for.

Our future "So You Think You Can Dance" star! I may be a bit biased, but I think she can twirl pretty well for a 2 year old!!

Please pass the popcorn











Today we were fortunate enough to spend the morning at a local park, complete with a picnic lunch, with our good friends, the Hemsworths (Kate we missed you). Our toddlers reminded us that it really is the simple things that make the world go around; in this case, it's called Smartfood Popcorn. Delish!

Bee Patient

Addie is having a hard time waiting until Trick or Treat to wear her bee costume; we had to try it on today to make sure it still fit. The best part about this bee outfit is that it only cost $1 at a rummage sale this summer!! I'm selling it for $10 if you're interested.

Dog Park













We decided it was only fair to take Mac (yes, we still have him) to dog park for some full filled frolicking! He didn't refuse. Before Addie was born, Mac went to dog park at least once a day, and sometimes, twice. Poor Mac; the city streets and sidewalks are no comparison. Much to our surprise, we realized that an old dog can teach a young girl new tricks; Addie is now able to lift her leg and tinkle. Who needs a potty when you've got a low slung pricker bush on hand?! Thanks, Mac!

Snowy Pumpkins











Saturday was October 10th, which, in theory, is an ideal time to hit the pumpkin farm. When we left the house, the sun was still shining (well, sort of), but by the time we go to our destination, it was SNOWING. Needless to say, after having driven for nearly 45 minutes, we were NOT about to give up on having some pumpkin fun. We were going to go on a hay ride if it was the last thing we did; it WAS the last thing we did because we were so frozen at the end that we couldn't possibly fathom more time spent outdoors. I guess it's all part of the experience, and it was all topped off by a fun and treat filled trip to Culver's!
