Thanksgiving 2011

Well, we certainly had a lot to be thankful for this year!  I can't believe we waited 5 years to share this day with our daughter.
Today we spent Thanksgiving at Gordon's parents house.  The gathering was a little smaller this year as Gordon's sister and her family spent this holiday home in Louisiana.  It's late so you will only be getting a few pics.  Some day when I learn better time management skills I will get back to a little journaling on this blog, in the meantime just pics :)
 No pics of me this year....busy running around with the camera.

Here I am with Mia in FAO Schwarz on the "Big Piano" ...remember that from the movie "Big" ?  Also here is Mia pushing Hannah around in Hannah's doll stroller.....she did this every time she could get Hannah to sit in it.

A Surprise visit to NY

On the 18th of November we flew up to NY and surprised our friend Christine.  Her husband John had called me over a month and a 1/2 ago and invited us up for Hannah's Christening and to surprise Christine with our visit.  It worked.....she was surprised Friday night when Mia knocked at her door!
Here are some pics of our visit.  We had a great time with them and can't wait for them to make the trip down to FL to enjoy some Mickey Mouse time with us.
***There are a few pictures of the girls in China here too so you can see the difference in them in over just 7 short months.

Yep, we let her have Oreos yesterday, they were obviously a big hit.  Sorry I didn't get the pic of her dunking her Oreo or opening her cookies and eating the white filling......not until it got messy did I think to grab the camera.  (yes the highchair cover actually came clean)

Mmmmmmmmmm......... More!

Another Fall outfit from Jonni

We are pulling out all the cute stuff this weekend :)  Tonight we were invited to my partner's open house and of course Mia had to look super cute.  Here is another outfit from our dear friend Jonni, again from head to toe she hooked her up!  Tomorrow it is going to get warmer so back to shorts for a few days.
 Hoping to enjoy some awesome weather next weekend. 

Thank you Jonni!

A few days

Before we go out I am trying to get a few pics uploaded here for you all.  Yesterday it was cool enough during the day to put Mia in the most adorable outfit that our good friend Jonni sent us.  Really I don't know how a mother of 2 girls has the time to think of us they way she does but we are so thankful  :)  My brain is so scattered I can't leave the house without my calendar or I'm totally lost.  I will have a few more cute pics over the next few days as Jonni sent us bunches of cute outfits...complete from the tights to the hair bows!!!
***I must have taken at least 300 pics of her in this outfit and not a one is her showing the front and having a smile on her face.  She is figuring out my camera :)

A little sugar from daddy

Jonni, she looks so cute!

Have no idea why she thinks her big wheel is a recliner this morning

Chaulk Festival 2011

Here are a few pics from the festival this year, although not as good as last year,  there were still a few that really stood out.  Sarasota Chaulk Festival 2011   Mia didn't seem to care either way just as long as she was outside she was having a good time.

My favorite
