Halloween is coming!

Julia and Andrew are getting ready for Halloween and the excitement is building!

A few days ago Julia debated being a cowgirl (cute!) but ended up deciding she wanted to be Cinderella. At least I caught a picture of the cowgirl!
And here is Andrew in the pumpkin patch, a recent Tiny Treks outing that he went on with Wendy. I love this picture, what a great patch! Andrew looks so tiny. He's still just a little guy. Sometimes I forget that.
Happy Halloween!

Attended the Pacific International Quilt Festival

Yes, this is a quilt! I saw soooo mannnnny incredible quilts today at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in San Jose. I was awed and wowed. Many thanks to Cheri for suggesting that I tag along with her! More details on my quilting blog...

McCain: Women's Health (in quotes) is just a loophole?

I must have been multi-tasking too much during the debate because I don't remember seeing McCain say this bit last night. But watching this just floors me. Look at his tone and body language when he says Women's "health" (using his fingers to put quotes around health). What does he mean? Sounds like he doesn't care about women's health. I'm sure that's not true, but boy does this come off wrong... Yeiks.

Pajaro Dunes Weekend

Can't beat the beach as a great setting for pictures. We spent a couple of nights at Pajaro Dunes the last weekend in September, and here are a few of my favorite pics. With the exception of the two dead elephant seals rotting on the beach right in front of our rented house (nature happens!), the weekend was a ton of fun with games taking the starring role for entertainment. Among the favorites for kids: Monster (Grandpa, are you recovered yet?), Preschool, Trains, Dress Up, and Chase; and for the adults: Carcassone, Ticket To Ride, Lost Cities. Great times!

A hot chocolate morning

Fall is here! One chilly morning we decided to wrap up and drink hot chocolate on the back deck.

Julia's first day of school

I finally downloaded pictures from my camera, and found this one of Julia that I took on her first day of school in September. She looks like such a big girl! She is a Butterfly now at her preschool, Footsteps.
