Utah and Summer.....

This is a long post... part of our summer spent in Utah. We had the best time and we are always sad to leave. All ready looking forward to next year! My little Spence has no meat on his bones, this bungee cord took him for a big ride!

Part of the crew coming up the hill in Park city

This is how much our baby grew while we were gone :) He's a big black monster now!

Park city- taking a ride up the mountain. My palms were a little sweaty but I survived!

My mom with Addy and Demspey after the alpine slide!


It's been a busy summer- I cant believe it is over, and the kids are back in school tomorrow. I never wanted it to end!! These are a few pictures of our Utah trip..... We spent a few days is park city and had a great time! I love it there.

Nordstrom reunion with Nana and all her great grandkids:)

After losing our Louie in December, we have had an empty home and sad hearts...... we have now added to the chaos with our new addition. Big black Bronx has turned our house upside down!! The kids spent the first week hiding on the couch and standing on chairs to get away from him. His sharp puppy teeth love little kids toes! He is now adjusted to his new home and biting has slowed down. He has his own language and barks like a seal when left in his crate! We love him so much all ready. He is a handful but he keeps us all laughing!

My babies celebrated their 5th birthday in March..... I can not believe it has been 5 years since baby A and B were born. They are best friends and love each other so much. They are still sleeping with their beds pushed together and really have a special relationship. They will always be my babies no matter how old they are! They just made the curve for their body mass index.... big news for them! We love having them in our family!!!
Our little nephew Eddison also has a March birthday so we celebrated with him too! We love him and are so glad he lives close to us. He always brings a smile to my face!!!!
Happy 5th Birthday to my babies........

We said goodbye to our "bear" last week. Cancer finally got the best of him. After battling for a year and half he decided he wanted to have legs that move and a body with no more tumors. He was a HUGE part of our family. Always in the center of everything. Matt and I have joke that he is "where's Waldo." In every picture we have you can usually see Louie in the back ground or part of his body always manages to make the picture. He was my constant companion- He cooked with me, cleaned with me, snuggled with me and no matter how rough the day was, he made it better. He has been through every birth, move, joy, sadness, birthday, holiday with us. The house is not the same with out him, I am constantly looking for him or listening for those old paws trying to walk on the hard wood floors. He gave us 10 1/2 years of loyalty, love and protection. Even in his last hour he was barking at people coming to the door. I am happy to say that on his last day he enjoyed a few of his favorite foods: Ricotta cheese (he is part Italian),steak,chicken, ice cream and of course a brownie!! My nights are not the same with out him here to warm my cold feet- We love you Louie

2 very busy months!! Basketball started for Lincoln, with his Dad as his coach! They are doing great so far! Lincoln absolutely loves it and is improving so much! He played against his cousin Keenan in this game. This is the two of them standing by each other. They gave each other a few extra bumps and elbows during the game! We spent Thanksgiving with my brother Lincoln, his wife Ruth and their little boy Eddison! We are so glad they are here and loved spending a holiday with them!! It was very relaxing and we were all full and happy!!

This is the neighbor hood post-trick or treating trade! They all sort through their candy and decide what they want to give to each other.. it's quite the process! It started raining while they were out so there were a lot of wet kids!!

This is Cleopatra and Mr. skeleton........

The old man turned 40 in November.... getting so old!! We celebrated with the kids and then took a trip to NYC with friends. Lots of shopping, food and sleeping in!! Looking forward to Christmas now........

Louie in his favorite spot! He loves sitting here waiting for some food! He has been known to snatch a plate out of the dishwasher and lick it clean! Columbus day trip to Brownsberry patch!!

Addy just started lacrosse this year. I still dont understand what is going on in the games, but I think she finally gets it!

These two are trouble in the tub!!!

Linc is just finishing up "fall" ball. His last game is this Saturday- Temp is supposed to be 38 degrees!!!
