Happy Fat Tuesday!

Happy Fat Tuesday!

It is Mardi Gras!!! Wear your beads proudly and eat all the paczkis you can find. These guys are mine!


Happy Halloween…

It was cold and windy.  No rain so it was fantastic.  We were invited to a Halloween party so that is where we started.  Well, Diego and I went ahead first.  Mia hadn’t taken a nap so Eric stayed at home with her.  It was a fun time.  We had food and the kids watched Ice Age.  At 5:30, we went trick or treating.  Well, Diego did.  Mia just stayed in the stroller.  I was sad because no one really saw her costume but I guarantee she looked cute.  Here are some pictures I did take:

This is Eric’s first carved pumpkin he ever did:
Happy Halloween!!!

I have to say, I was impressed.  Lots of sketches were done until this one was declared the winner.

My ferocious pirate:

My friendly bumble bee:

And both of them together:
My Little Trick or Treaters!

Not the best pictures but this is the best I can do.  It is hard to have them look at the camera at the same time. 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day…

I hope you have a wonderful day!

We, on the other hand, are just going to hang out at home.  We really don’t need to spend any money today since we need to pay current bills and save money for our upcoming trip.  We will just spend it at home with Diego.  That makes me happy.  We will probably go out at a later date and have a nice dinner.

Christmas Cards Mailed…

Just got them today.  Thankfully I went home for lunch because they were there waiting for me.  So, I stuffed, sealed, labeled and stamped 53 cards.  Mailed 51 cards, two were hand delivered.  Unhappy that I got them today but happy that they are in the mail and will be picked up at 3:30.  So, I hope the ones in Chicago get delivered tomorrow and the rest get delivered on Christmas Eve.  If not, then they should get them the day after Christmas.

Either way, they are ALL DONE!!!  Woo hoo!!!
