Starting them Young

Most of you know that D and I are big sports fans.  We love to cheer on our Wildcats and our girls are big fans too.  We decided to take a family trip down to Tucson to go to a game.  We met our good friends the Cottrells, who have kids the same ages as our kids.  Lucky for us our kids love their kids as much as we love the parents.  It's a win win for everyone!  We headed down Friday night and spent Saturday touring around campus, tailgating and then attending the football game.  We left after breakfast on Sunday since Chatty had a soccer game.  Everyone had a lot of fun but D and I were glad to get back to our own bed!

Thank A Veteran

Take some time today to thank a Veteran for their brave service. If it wasn't for the men and women who have served this country and continue to do so, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the freedoms we have today. My sincerest thanks go out to my grandfathers, fathers, uncle and my big brother! I appreciate all that you have done for your country! Mr. ESPN, Chatty, Bia and I are PROUD to be a part of your family!

I can't believe it is that time of year again.  Time to start thinking about Christmas Cards and photos for the cards.  Last weekend a friend of a friend took some family photos of us.  Needless to say, it is always interesting trying to get both girls smiling and looking at the camera!  Our photographer was so patient and got some good ones.  Below is one of my favorite shots of the whole family ...

Halloween 2010

Another Halloween has come and gone ... so much anticipation by the kids and then it's over in a flash!  Every year we try to get pictures of the girls in their costumes prior to trick or treating and it is always a fight because they are so ancy to hit the road.  This year we decided to do a quick photo op after church to ensure we got some decent pictures.

Tinkerbell and a Phillies Baseball Player

In case you were wondering -
she was her favorite player - Chase Utley

Would you believe Tinkerbell lost her wand before trick or treating?
It is still MIA...

My sweet little Tinkerbell
