a little light in the distance

Last week we received the TPR (termination of parental rights) paperwork with a court date on November 29th. It is the first step in a long process but this is good news!

Just a funny babyism: Last week we were shopping and walked through the Christmas isle, santa. Baby got really excited called Santa, Santa! Then we kept shopping. And he continued to call for Santa. Yelling, "Santa, wher r u, Santa!" People actually stopped to watch him, laughing. cute!

And the children's museum has a special football display right now. Chris was very excited!

apple picking with the nanas

apple picking with dad

What a great trip with the grandma and nana! We all miss them. They came for Time Out for Women but that was just an excuse. We went shopping, pumpkin patches, apple picking, farmers market, out to eat and just staying up way too late talking and laughing. Wish we had more of these long weekends.

Halloween evening

Happy Halloween!

Mom brought these luminaries while she came to visit a few weeks ago. They were so cute and we got lots of compliments. We also had a few children come to the house which was really fun our quiet deadend street does not get a lot of traffic.

instead of taking him around the neighborhood (he could careless about candy) we made treats and showed him off. It was great to see friends and enjoy some great company.

we love carmel apples and these were all done up with chocolate, heath bar and some had nuts as well. yum, yum!

Halloween-ward party!

This was a great ward party-a chili cook off and a trunk or treat! We were nervous because baby threw a fit each time we brought his costume out but he was so distracted by everyone that we just slipped him right into it.

One of my favorite child's books..Where the Wild Things Are. I thought everyone grew up with this book but some many people had no idea who he was. um?!


Baby Halloween 2

A co-worker gave baby K this bubble sword "sorre" as he calls it; and he LOVES it. Carries it all over the place. I meant to paint it gold but close enough.

pumpkin finding

This is serious business finding a pumpkin! We have the best pumpkin patches in upstate NY. They have animals to feed, food to eat, apples, trains, bouncing houses, decorations and trackers. This year our favorite thing!

This day the tracker was not giving rides but working so it kept driving past us; pulling things and moving others. Each time baby K would cry and cry for a ride on the tracker. It was very sad! But really funny as well.

He loves getting rides!! And I love this time of year.

a new england fall....

This is my favorite time of year in NY! And we are enjoying all the fun things we can do and enjoying time together. Time outside, painting, apple picking and pumpkin patches, hikes, picnics and all the yummy food that is around this time of year.

his friend Chase-we talk about him from time to time and baby K just giggles, "chassse" he repeats. Cute!
