I realized that I need to post some Thanksgiving photos before we reach Christmas!  Time flies when you're having fun...or if you're getting old. Ha!  As a child, I could never believe that time would go quickly, but sure enough...

Our family Thanksgiving was such a special time because everyone was able to come at the same time- Steve and Angela, Brian, Mel, Thom and Viv, and Zach and I.  (We also had seven dogs!)

Viv enjoyed some snuggles from her favorite Grandpa

Feeding time is enjoyed by all

The gang's all here!

Viv's first Christmas cookie baking experience.  She stayed involved with each step.

A child's discovery of the magic of cookie cutters!

When sleds aren't available, laundry baskets work just fine.

Candyland at Hershey Park- getting her ready for roller coaster rides!

 Meeting Santa was no big deal.

New York City

Zach and I found some time to visit NYC and we enjoyed a lovely, cold weekend in the city.  We visited the 9/11 Museum and we saw the musical, Wicked.  We also had to roll out of the city after all the fabulous food we ate!

This year Remy received quite a few compliments on his costume as Waldo.  Unfortunately, he wasn't fond of wearing it, so yet again, there was no prize for us at the costume contest at Bark in the Park.  Oh well, this year I had the pleasure of Mom, Dad, Mel and Viv joining us for the walk and that was a lot of fun!  Viv was really quite comfortable in her skunk costume and couldn't have been any cuter if she tried!

We also went trick or treating downtown Carlisle at local businesses.  Viv wasn't quite into it, but was much more content when she go her seaweed treat.  Who knew you could tame a cranky child with seaweed rather than candy!

I finally got around to taking a photo of my front door decorations for fall. I've had the area done for a while now and as you can see, the corn shocks are already on their way out!  Oh well, tomorrow is trick or treat night and then they can come down.

I made the wreath and am quite pleased with how it turned out. Those are felt flowers and they are super simple to create. (Sorry the photos aren't the best- took them with my phone as I was leaving for work. )

I got to visit this cutie last weekend.  She is growing so much, I can hardly believe it!  We enjoyed trips to music class and the Please Touch Museum.  She has quite the personality and it's fun to see her making new discoveries about what she can do and the world around her.
