Snow White, Soccer Players and Anniversaries

A busy weekend ...

We purchased some princess costumes for our little princess ...

Chatty's Godfather, Uncle Greg, came to town for a visit.  In between soccer games we had lunch with him and his family - always a fun time!

Speaking of soccer games, Chatty's team won the tournament on penalty kicks.  Chatty was the goalie and blocked all but one penalty kick!  Needless to say she is going to be a soccer player for Halloween.

And D and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary.  Chatty acted as our photographer (it took several shots but she finally got a decent one of us).

End of Summer and First Day of School

So it has been over a month since I last posted ... I have plenty of excuses, but rather than tell you those, I will post some pictures.  That's really the main reason you check this blog (if you are sill actually checking it)!

The girls flew back east with me for 2 weeks.  I worked in NJ while the girls attended Grandma/Grandpa Camp 2011.  It was a rousing success and the girls were invited back next year!  D joined us for one of the weeks and enjoyed Kid Free Camp 2011 ... not sure who was more excited the girls or D!

Some pictures ....

And that brings us to today - the first day of school.  Chatty stated 2nd grade and Bia Pre-K at the elementary school.  Chatty didn't even look back to say goodbye when she got on the bus, she was so excited.  Bia told us she doesn't want to go back tomorrow!  The joys of the first day of school!

A quick recap of our family vacation.  We spent last week at the beach visiting my family in Florida.  We had a great time and ate lots of good food!

We really had a great time in FL - we appreciate everything our family did to make our stay so much fun!!  We can't wait to go back again!

Spring Pictures and Mother's Day

I held off on posting these pictures because we gave them out as Mother's Day gifts.  The girls had a great time posing for our friend ..


And because Bia always likes to goof around .. 

We tried to get a few pictures before church on Sunday ... as usual it was a time consuming task to get a good picture which resulted in us being a little behind schedule ...

Bia really didn't want to smile much ....

This was as good as we could get ...

Happy Easter

He is Risen - He is Risen Indeed!
We hope you all had a great Easter. We had a nice one, although I wasn't sure the Easter Bunny was going to show up at our house. Some children were not that well behaved this weekend! We had a busy week.  It included decorating for Easter, dying eggs and getting haircuts.


It also included Easter dresses, church, pictures and lunch at Nana and Poppa's house. 

Bia showing she isn't too thrilled with pictures 

Finally a family picture at Nana & Poppa's house

Goodies from the Easter Bunny - yes he did pay a visit!
