Oh, my littlest man…how has half a year gone by so quickly?


You are such a sweet love…you get so happy to see your brother and sister walk in the door…you give the biggest grins and giggles and it makes us so happy to see your excitement!


You have learned to roll front and back.  Still not sitting up yet, but…


Your very first tooth has popped through!  You are getting so big!


Happy Six Months, Liam!  We love you so much!

We just got back from a fun and busy weekend out in Devon’s hometown.  The kids were super excited about getting to meet their brand-new baby cousin, Makayla!  Isn’t she a cutie?


Grandma and Grandpa Camenga now have seven grandchildren!  And when these cousins get together, they always have a great time.  So much fun stuff to do, like…

Watch deer feed on corn right in Grandma and Grandpa’s backyard!


Play with cool new toys that we don’t have at our house!


And best of all, get spoiled with lots of hugs and kisses by two pretty awesome grandparents!


The cousins all had a great time just being silly!


And of course, we all enjoyed snuggling with new baby Makayla.


Playing with cousins usually means staying up late, so we all enjoy sleeping in a little bit.  On Sunday morning, Seamus crept into the bedroom and whispered, “Mom, I’m going to play with Liam.”  I mumbled something like, “That’s great…” but was then awoken by some serious giggling.  Seamus had climbed right into Liam’s travel bed with him and Liam of course found it hilarious!


Such goofy kids!  And Grandma enjoys being goofy right along with them!

The Lion King

I have been wanting to see The Lion King for forever!  Last year I had checked out the possibility of taking the kids to NYC to see the show, but then we got even better news…The Lion King was coming right to our own Proctor’s Theater! 

As a Christmas gift, my mom brought me and the kids to the show.  We were all beyond excited!  My aunt and uncle had gotten them the animated Lion King dvd for Christmas also, and Seamus and Grace were hooked!  They couldn’t wait to see it!

Last night was the big night…



Unfortunately, the picture taking was extremely limited due to the the strict rules at the theater.  But the memory of this event will stay with us forever!

What an amazing show!  I had heard that it has to be seen to be believed, and how true that is.  The kids absolutely loved it, and sat completely in awe for the entire 2.5 hour show.  I was so happy to experience it with them.  Out in the lobby we, even got to see some of the characters in full costume – incredible to see up close. 

If you get a chance to see it, GO!  You will not regret it!

Lake George Winter Carnival

Lake George, NY is one of my most favorite places on earth.  We spend a lot of time there in the summer, and this past weekend we went up to experience a little winter fun!


It was so cool to see our fun summer hangout completely covered in ice and snow! 


There were a lot of activities happening out on the frozen lake.  Snowmobile rides, dogsled racing, ice bowling…


And even helicopter rides!  I couldn’t believe a helicopter was landing and taking off right on the ice.


Seamus and Grace on the lake! 


Quite a different experience from the last time we were at the lake!


Liam just loves to be outside, so he had fun cruising around in the stroller.


The remains of an igloo!


I spent many summers of my childhood in Lake George with family.  This place, the House of Frankenstein, always had a fully-dressed Frankenstein character greeting visitors out on the sidewalk.  There is a story that as a little kid, I somehow convinced my dad that I wanted to go inside the museum.  I can’t remember exactly what happened once inside, but my dad will tell you that it ended with him frantically trying to find an emergency exit to remove a screaming child from the museum.  I don’t think I’ve been back inside since!


The end to a perfect day…black and white cookies!


Heading for home with my happy little man…


And two zonked-out kiddos. 


The end!
