Thanksgiving Weekend Part One

We hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! So far its been great..

Zoey went to the park for the first time.. and LOVED the swings...



Her cousins are in town and the girls had fun playing with each other..



We couldn't figure out why Zoey was crying when she woke up - she NEVER cries when she wakes up.. she always wakes up happy... we figured it out when we came in and saw this...


Zoey is CRAWLING!!! she is on the move.. they always say a baby will crawl when they find something they want... well she found it.. the dog's toy.. of course...

But now she is all over the place and is starting to try to pull up... we are in for it now.. I will try to video it when i get a chance!

a food, a pain, a bottle, a crack, a george, and a crawl (almost)

This was one of the first time Zoey was given "real" food...


It pained me to put this on.. but I felt better when I saw how happy Gary was


Zoey can hold her own bottle now.. woohoo!


I think she has a future as a plummer...


This was from when my parents came to visit...

her and aunt Katie will be the best of friends... they share a love of George!

She has the moves she just can't do it for long...

The dogs are very thrilled about all that has been going on...

The City of Brotherly Love

Over the weekend Gary, Zoey, Grandma, Pop-pop and I headed north to the city of Brotherly Love.. Philly. Gary's cousin was getting married and since many of them still live there we combined the wedding with a family reunion and had a BLAST! It was Zoey's first time seeing many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins from Philly and Boston! We loved seeing everyone and can't wait to see everyone again! Boston next time!
A happy girl on the plane ride... She was soo good on all the plane rides! and would greet people as we walked on the plane!

Zoey playing on the hotel room floor...notice the sheet covering the nasty floors.

Zoey's first cheesesteak! (I miss them already!)

The three girl cousins.. Zoey, Caitlyn, and Rachel...see the similarity...

Jakers protecting Zoey while she sleeps..

Zoey's first "winter" experience... so cute!

Zoey and Aunt Mary!

Johnny D, Colleen (the bride), and Tommy D. with Zoey

Jakers loved Zoey and Zoey loved Jakers.. it reminded her of Cyrus and Oliver

A tired girl on the plane ride home...

Last but not least... it has always been one of my goals to see the north in the fall.. and we caught it just in time! The leaves were sooooooo beautiful.. i couldn't help but get some pics, despite some making fun of by the Boston crew! Pitures do not do it justice.. they were beautiful!





Thanks to Johnny D and Mary for hosting the best wedding we have ever been too.. i can taste the crab claws now... We love you guys!

A few things...

Warning... No Zoey updates are included in this post... Sorry I have to include the "sometimes us" part every once in awhile....

1. Two years ago today I married my best friend! He is the best husband, best friend and father! I am the luckiest person in the world... and can't wait for a million more anniversaries!

These were waiting for me when i got home.. what a nice way to be welcomed home...


2. This weekend I became domestic.. i know i know.. but i did it.. i bought a SEW MACHINE... every person who knows me.. knows this is HUGE!!! But while i was at target they had exactly what i have been looking for a $20/small/easy-to-use sewing machine. so i bought it!

Being a shorter person i am CONSTANTLY having to buy pants that are eight feet too long.. well not that bad.. but i have cut a foot off of pants before.. and I am sick of asking someone else or paying someone else to hem my pants for me.. And since i bought new pants this weekend (woohoo for the best pants ever!! thanks Gap!) i knew it was time.. so i did it.. all by myself! and they are pretty good.. if i do say so myself... (i even redid my first hem since it wasn't straight enough.. i know!)


3. Zoey and I voted a week ago.. we have early voting in florida... I think its soo important to take your children to vote! I remember going everytime with my mom and being so proud because she would let me vote.. so if you didnt vote this time.. VOTE NEXT TIME.. and take your kids!!
