Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2011

Could these 2 guys be ANY CUTER??

Sheriff vannyB and his Deputy Daddy

van seemed a bit concerned at first,

but quickly got into character..

We had a fun time trick or treating with our cousins tonight.  We also spent some time with them this weekend carving our pumpkins.

First we had to pick one out at the patch..

Then we had to get a’carving!

van helped his Daddy with the hard work.

Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.  Oops!  Oh well- there’s always next year!

Hope everyone had a Safe and Happy Halloween!

11 Months!

October 28th, 2011

People, when I say we are moving and shaking over here, it’s a bit of an understatement.  vannyB is B-U-S-Y from the time he wakes up till the moment he goes to bed.

His current fav’s are 1) WALKING ON HIS OWN!! 2) walking while holding onto my index fingers 3) throwing whatever he may be carrying at the moment 4) pointing at things and 5) reading his books

Just yesterday van was playing on the floor and went from a sitting position to a standing position all on his own.  And then once he was stable, he walked across the room. Mr. vB and I just looked at each other and grinned from ear to ear!

The Lil’ Dude’s Personality is also starting to shine through!  He can be very serious at times {just like his daddy} and then bust out with a grin and a giggle {like his mommy}!  His laugh makes my heart melt…

And in-case you want to know, Current Stats are 25 lbs and 33″ tall.

We {ok, mostly me} is getting quite excited about the upcoming birthday festivities.  I already teased you with photos of the balloon birthday wreath and the high chair.  I’ve got a few more DIY’s up my sleeve, but I’m not ready to reveal them just yet.

I know, I know.. what a tease!  But I WILL share what van is going to be for Halloween!

Giddy Up!

So Much To Catch Up On!

October 17th, 2011

Here’s a recap of what we’ve been doing the past 2 weeks…

1. Philly Day 2011 - we took our nephew Philip out on an adventure for his birthday.

First stop was the State Fair.

Too bad Philip fell asleep shortly after eating the biggest corn-dog EVER, cause he missed

the chickens

And a Bull with REALLY big horns!

But he woke up in time for us to also go to Build-a-Bear.

and build him a bear. Kung Fu Bear to be exact!

vanny seemed a bit bored with it all..

But in the end we were all smiles!

2. Birthday Party Sneak Peek- I started prepping for the big Birthday Celebration next month.

It included some of this..

A Balloon Wreath

And the Prince’s Throne.

3. Tile Demo Anyone? That’s right.  Bye-Bye Orange Tile!

4. Making a Halloween Costume- any guesses as to what I am making?

5. And Keeping up with my little dude!

I’ll hit you guys with more details on everything shortly!

The Pumpkin Patch

October 6th, 2011

Last weekend we headed out to the pumpkin patch with our good friends the Hansen’s.

{Parker, van }

{and Taylor}

We had so much fun finding our way through the hay maze..

And played in the pumpkins..

There was also a tractor..

And a swing & slide..

Let’s just say we all had a blast.

And vannyB was sound asleep in his car-seat before we even pulled out of the parking lot!


Per Request- Please see the below picture of me this time last year at the Pumpkin Patch!

This one’s for you Amy Cox!!
