Happy Halloween!

Evan and Eliana had a great time Trick or Treating tonight. I thought they'd only stay out to go to a few houses, but they were out for quite a while! I rigged Evan's DJ Lance Boombox with some duct tape and a box and made it so he can carry his candy. Evan was DJ Lance and Eliana was "Foofa" from 
"Yo Gabba Gabba."

Soccer and Snow!

Evan and I left for his soccer practice this morning and on the way, we saw the first snow of the season beginning to fall. Luckily, practice was held indoors. Today we worked on dribbling and shooting. Evan did really well, but keeps wanting to play goalie. When soccer was over, we went outside and try to catch snowflakes on our tongue.


Unreal. We don't even have the winter clothes out yet! The leaves are still on the trees! This is going to be interesting.

Fire Safety Day

Evan and I went down to the local fire department for an open house. Evan got to go inside some of the fire trucks, but most of all, he enjoyed all three of the moon bounce houses they had there!

Evan got to ride on the back of a vintage 1937 fire truck!

Available for birthday parties! How awesome is that? 

Yesterday was all about the Moon Bounce. Evan and Eliana were at a 'White Elephant' sale at Evan's school earlier in the day and spent over an hour in the Moon Bounce that they had there. Here, across the street from the Fire House, Evan spent a few hours going between the bounce houses.

Great Day at Sesame Place

The whole family went to Sesame Place last weekend, on what truly felt like the last day of summer. The weather was perfect, and the kids had a really great time. We went on a few rides with all four of us together on the same ride for the first time.

Evan's First Soccer Practice.

Evan was a little trepidatious at first. He clung to Mommy while the other kids got in a circle.

Within minutes, Evan joined in and listened intently to the coach. 

Evan learned how to dribble and pass with the inside of his foot.

Homesick, Home Sick.

Been a long few weeks of work an I'm getting burnt out. Genevieve sent me this photo this morning of the kids camped out on the couch, both not feeling well. I can't wait to get home and give them the biggest hugs ever.

Driveway Drawings

With the fall weather being near perfection, the kids and I went out to play around the house today. I tried the best I could to draw the Yo Gabba Gabba characters for them. I couldn't get 'Toodie' right, so she looks a little mad.

Evan and Eliana with Tiny

Evan is Auntie Tiny are in full pose, and Eliana is done posing for pictures. Still a great picture though. 
Evan and Eliana had fun meeting their English cousins at Uncle Steve's house in Daddy's hometown, Milltown, NJ. The time seems to go by so fast when our cousins from England are in town. I'm glad the kids had a chance to meet their cousins. Hopefully, the whole family will get to go to England and Ireland one day. I may wait until after they are toddlers though, if you know what I mean.
