Halloween 2015 - Turtle Power!

I'm so happy that my kiddos have granted me another year of coordinated costumes!  I just love it and will take it for as long as I can get it!

This year they decided to be Ninja Turtles!

LPA Fun at Great Wolf Lodge

We recently attended the LPA District 1 regional at the Great Wolf Lodge in MA.  I have been wanting to check out this cool place for so long, and a regional seemed like the perfect opportunity!  We road-tripped with our friends the Weissers, and met up the Leahys and many other cool people once we arrived!

The kids had an absolute blast!  

A perfect weekend road trip!  A great time was had by all!

Family Traditions

Oh, what a bad blogger I’ve been!

I fully intend to get back on track – and what better time than just after one of our favorite family traditions?  Pictures on the fence in Vermont!

Our family has been visiting this fence and taking pictures here in Manchester, Vermont for 33 years.  When my children were born, we started the tradition with them as well.  Here’s our fence photos for 2015!

I am so blessed to be their mom!


Couldn’t do it without this guy by my side!


Another fall is upon us, and I am enjoying every minute of my favorite season!

Peter Pan Jr.

Seamus and Grace have had a busy few months, preparing for the upcoming Drama Club production of Peter Pan Jr.!

Grace was Lyria, one of Tinkerbell’s fairies.


Seamus was Hop, a Lost Boy.


The kids worked so hard and put on a wonderful production!

Happy 8th Birthday, Grace!

My Gracie girl recently celebrated her 8th birthday!  We made some very special plans, which included a trip to the American Girl Store and Cafe!
Grace's friend Lily was also celebrating her birthday, so she joined us for the fun!  The girls were treated like princesses, and a wonderful time was had by all!

We also had a family party with a special cake that Grace designed and Nanny baked for her!
Our little girl is growing up so fast!  Happy Birthday Grace, you bless our lives in so many ways!  We hope all your wishes come true!

December Catch-Up

December was fun and crazy and flew by!  Here’s some things we were up to!

We celebrated our 10th annual Mommy and Me cookie exchange party!


We went to see A Christmas Carol at a local college!


I got to help out in Grace’s classroom and they had a very special visitor!


We got some amazing snow and even a snow day from school!


We made a gingerbread masterpiece!


Our Sacred Heart School Christmas concert was beautiful!  The living nativity and special visit from Santa is always my favorite part!
