Happy Halloween!


We had alot of Halloween celebrations around here this year!

Friday Cooper came to work with me and we did a Health Fair in our costumes. It has been so hot these days I couldn't use the skeleton costume so he went with me as "Tom Brady"...I was a witch. (This is the only pic I have and my tights didn't show but they were cute!)

Last weekend we all went to a church "Trunk or Treat" and Cooper was lucky enough to spend that day with both sets of grandparents!


Friday night we went to a Halloween party at Jake's neighborhood but I didn't snap any pictures. We rode a hay ride, went on pony rides and had a great time dancing to old Michael Jackson hits!



Tonight (after a fun day at Brody's bday party!)....we trick or treated under the full moon in our neighborhood!

Be still my beating heart

Some days are just so perfect you can't believe you are so lucky. The small things in life that just line up so perfectly that only you and God know they are little blessings.

Today at work I painted pumpkins at an assisted living facility with the residents....how great is that for a day at work? We painted and chatted about kids, grandkids and their lives, loves and losses. I chatted and painted too. I got a kiss and hug as I left my new "friends". It makes me laugh at the stressful jobs I have in my past where I thought corporate decisions were so important and quotas and numbers ruled my day.

I came home to take a bike ride with Rob and Cooper and only have Cooper insist on taking Teddy (my beloved childhood stuffed bear) on the bike ride. So...I strapped Teddy in and off we went.

On our way out the driveway I was greated by my kindergarten teacher Sister Cyril who was having dinner with our neighbor and then greated by our Priest (also same house dinner guest). They had nothing but love and kindness to say about my little family as we headed out on our bikes.

We rode the neighborhood, chatted about our day as the cool breeze blew past us. Cooper strapped in, Teddy strapped in and the hot Florida sun lowering in the sky.

Some days are just easy...I guess it makes up for those days when life seems so complicated.

Trick or Treating at Sea World

What a GREAT day to be outside! High of 70! Mom, Cooper and I spent the day at Sea World with about a million other people enjoying the great outdoors and trick or treating in the park. Of course we saw the Elmo Halloween show and Cooper was happy to wave a Elmo and The Count from afar but was not happy to meet them in person.




Rob was home nursing a cold on the couch with football!

Saturday Fun


We had a busy day today going to see Elmo LIVE with Meredith and Brody! Meredith took all the pictures so check us out on her blog by clicking HERE.

Brody was generous enough to pass more toys down to us and Cooper spent the night spinning and spinning on his new Sit and Spin.
Rob and I cleaned the garage while Cooper napped...that's what we think of as fun...sad right?
We did spend the evening on the couch as a family watching Ratatui. Even Baxter sat on with us on his last night with us...he is thrilled I am sure to be back at his home sweet home tomorrow when my mom gets back from Texas.
