Our hearts go out to the Whatcotts

My friend Nick, who I grew up with, and his sweet wife, Janessa, lost their precious, 6 day old baby boy, Cole Gary Whatcott. We are heart broken by this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with their family.

Happy November Everyone!! I can't believe we are already in this wonderful (and might I add - EXPENSIVE) season!! I have a few new fun posts in the works, but I'm finding it difficult to find (make) time to add all of our fun adventures. Also, I realize that some of the pictures are small and hard to see. What I'm getting at, is that I recently discovered that all of the pictures from my blog (and much MUCH more) are also on my Picasa Web Albums which can be viewed directly at:

I'm sure most of you will not find this very interesting, but hopefully at least my family will. Also, there isn't any of my charming commentary on the Web Albums. Although some of you (I hope) enjoy my ramblings, I suspicion that a few of you could do with out. And perhaps there is someone, somewhere, who just can't get enough of us... and hopefully its someone I know... lol! Actually that really isn't very funny. Fellow bloggers should watch out for strange comments on their blog... I have had a couple and I WILL be making my BLOG private very soon. So again, if you haven't already, please send me your e-mail addresses if you would like to continue to view my lovely blog!

Good bye for now, more to come soon!

I am trying my new fancy Picasa program... hope this works and is big enough to see because it was super easy!
So here you have it... our HALLOWEEN PICTURES!!!
We had a great day and night. Mitch and I visited Anthony at school for his Trick or Treating Parade. Later when I picked him up from school we went right to Mitch's. His neighborhood has lots of kids and fun activities. They threw a great Halloween party with bounce houses, slides, activities, food.... etc.. etc... Mitch's parents came over to hang out with us and hand out candy while we were gone. Unfortunately it POURED RAIN most of the night. But since it was warm no one seemed to mind. The kids thought it was brilliant because they now had a water slide! We hung out with our friends, the Frenkels in their garage for a while waiting for it to stop raining so we could walk home, but it wasn't letting up, so eventually his Dad picked us up. It was was great! We were all 3 soaked to the bone, but happy none the less! Thanks to Mizner's Preserve, The Frankel's, and The Freifelds for a great night full of sugar!!!

Pumpkin Patch

We had a great (hot) time at the PUMPKIN PATCH this year! I always love our pumpkin patch pictures because they are so colorful and pretty! We all started out in orange, but Anthony, being the defiant child that he is, changed his clothes at the last minute. Oh well. As he says (learned at school): "You get what you get and you don't get upset!"... a brown shirt and green John Deere cell phone it is! Maybe I'll get better pics next time. aka - this weekend! Hee Hee!

Anthony takes over the camera:
"Oops, I forgot your heads! Let me take one more.."

Carvin' Punkins:
Anthony went across the street to take pictures of me doing ALL the WORK!

All THREE of my pumpkins turned out pretty darn cute...

The above picture is a classic Anthony expression that means "I'm done"!

and 2005... Ok, so this isn't a pumpkin picture, but it was in October and I couldn't leave out his first year! He is 6 months old (one of my very favorite stages) here with Grammie.

Soccer Practice...

Mitch just started coaching his new soccer team this season... 7 Year Old Girls, with his friend Lauren! Lauren's daughter is on the team and they coached her older daughter's team together a couple of years ago. They had their first practice on Tuesday. Anthony and I tagged along to cheer them on... oh, and because Anthony thinks he is the assistant coach. It was a beautiful night and a great place to hang out. The girls will make a great team! We are excited for lots of practices and games! The park and weather are such a treat!

This is Anthony in full coaching mode... The spiderman gloves make him play and coach better... he begged the whole time we were there to put on his entire hot, bulky costume on, which he did when we went out for sushi after practice. He was a big hit at the restaurant.

The important aspects of coaching... this is where all of his soccer experience comes in handy:

He's a natural... he can't wait until he is 4 so he can be on a team!
