Reilly's Unbirthday

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week visiting lots of family! During the trip, we were able to get both sides of the family together (that were in town) for a family dinner.

As we are clearing the dinner plates and getting out the dessert plates, Reilly asks when he's going to get to blow out the candles. I giggled and asked him if it was his birthday!

His response - "Uh, Yeah!"

Our friend, Mary

So we've officially hit the terrible 2 age with Reilly. A couple weeks ago, he was pitching a fit and I put him in his bed for a little cooling off period. I took this opportunity to say a little Hail Mary for her to help me be a good mother in this situation. Hannah questioned what I was doing. I said that I was asking Mary, Jesus' mommy, to help me. We prayed it together and after the prayer was over, Hannah asked "Is she here yet?"

Nozark, Ya Know!

After picking Hannah up from her Good Shepherd class this past Sunday, I asked her what she learned about. As we're walking down the hall, she says "Nozark". Huh? Did you say Mozart (I was really confused for a second as to why they would be learning about Mozart at a church class??). She then turned around and looked at me and said "NO, NOZARK Mom! You know the guy that built the boat."!

Ahhh... Noah's Arc!

Hannah's first soccer game...

My high school soccer coach used to get made at us when we all ran to the ball. He called it the flies to crap theory... You can see why here.

NOTE- Hannah is on the green team, and is the only one with a box in her hair.

The Little Terminator

Reilly looks like a little terminator with his shades, except for the football shirt and the Capri Sun.

Halloween 2010 group

Here is the 2010 Halloween Team!

The family of 4, for now.

Here we are, in all our glory.
Halloween 2010 trivia- About 4 hours after this picture was taken, Daddy got really sick!

Add a Zombie Astronaut

We all went to Hannah's BFF's house (Evan) for a little Halloween party. Evan is a Zombie Astronaut and he is the best one we saw that night.
As you can see, Reilly is starting his night FULL of eating candy. He rode around in the wagon most of the night eating lollipops and any other candy he could get his hands on without us watching.

Direct Sunlight = Crappy pictures

So... Stephanie demanded we take a picture on the front porch and despite the family photographer pointing out the direct sunlight problems, she still insisted.. So here they are.

Brother and sister together

They make a cute brother and sister couple, next year they will have to make room for one more.

Mighty Mouse!

Reilly rocked Halloween as Mighty Mouse, the forgotten 1970s? cartoon character. It is funny almost no one we asked knew who Mighty Mouse was. I remember the show, but then again I did just turn 35. -Daddy

Strawberry Shortcake

Check out the homemade Strawberry Shortcake costume Stephanie made! She did a great job and Hannah, as you can tell, loved the costume. She wore it several times leading up to Halloween, and she was very proud every time she wore it.

There is the look!

Sometimes, as a husband, you have to worry when your wife constantly watches shows like, "I almost got away with it", "CSI- Wherever", and "Snapped". I'm just saying.

I love you Stephanie, don’t hurt me. -Daddy

Halloween pictures!

Now that Halloween and come and gone, and our friends are complaining of a lack of Halloween pictures... I present to you some Halloween pictures!

You can't see it from this angle, but Stephanie looks quite scary with a large knife in her hands. I had to protect the children. -Daddy

Halloween tonight...

Hannah and Reilly are getting excited about Halloween tonight! Reilly is still resting, but Hannah is already asking to put on her costume. She will be Strawberry Shortcake and Reilly is going to be Mighty Mouse!

Hannah's Soccer Medal!

Coach Jeff also gave Hannah her soccer medal! Hannah and I (Daddy) posted the team picture together and she wanted to show off her metal too!

Hannah's first soccer team!

Coach Jeff just came by and dropped off Hannah's first soccer team picture! Thanks to Coach Jeff for a great first year!

No Webkinz Allowed

Yesterday I reminded Hannah that she would get to wear her Halloween costume to school today. She responded, "Yeah, but my teacher said we couldn't bring any webkinz.". Uhhh... ok....that shouldn't be a problem.

Then I remembered reading an email from the teacher that said the children were not to bring any "weapons" to school that coordinated with their costumes. I chuckled and told Hannah that the teacher meant for them not to bring weapons. "What are weapons, Momma?"

I love her innocence!

Hannah's First Soccer Game

Hannah had her very first soccer game yesterday. Although she didn't score, she tried really hard! She was a team player and had a lot of FUN! If you've never been to a 4-5 year old soccer game, I highly recommend it. It's VERY entertaining!

Don't Tell Hey-Ya!

but Mom took me to Krispy Kreme the other day. I "wuv" snacktime!

Who's to Blame?

So yesterday I was combing through my hair only to notice some gray hair. "Oh no" I said out loud only for Hannah to overhear me.

What is it Momma? Oh, nothing, I just found some gray hair. "Oh", she says matter of factly, "that's from Reilly and Daddy".

As always, she's the innocent bystander :)

Girls Day Out

This past weekend, Hannah filled up her "marble jar". (she gets a marble for doing chores without being asked and for helping out when she sees that something needs to be done). As a reward, she and I had a girls day out! We went to the movies (Shrek) and then to a 'girly' place for lunch.

Hannah got a "swirly curly" aka Shirley Temple!

Then an oh-so-fun flower shaped PB&J!

Then a fancy cupcake with pink AND purple sprinkles on it!

I'm so glad I get to do things like this with my little girl ---who's not so little anymore! I love my sweet Hannah!

Blowing out the candles on the 5th birthday party


Hannah blew out the candles on her cup-cake creation, then ate it "all-gone". She had a great time and really enjoyed having her friends at the party. She doesn't know it yet, but she is looking forward to school starting back up next month. Or at least her parents are. -Daddy

Activities: Cup-Cake creation


One of the activities Momma planned for the party was for each kid to make their own cup-cake creation. Even LeighAnn got into the act (Ginny and Al's mother). Reilly went the other direction and just put a block on fondant on the top of his cup-cake. He later decided it didn't taste very good and spit it out (I don't balme him). Everyone got creative with their cup-cakes (Daddy stayed behind the camera).

Loyal readers will think Hannah's birthday hat is familiar. To date she has worn the same hat (that Momma made) for five birthday "seasons" (there is always more than one party per year). This year was the first year the hat had to be repaired, however it was a minor repair. To our surprise, Hannah wore that hat the entire party... for the first time.
