Happy Birthday Aunt Lisa! GE Lighting!

The great turning on of the lights!

All the lights were so colorful and pretty - we'll have to go back and see them again!

Lots of fun with Santa Claus, snowmen, reindeer, gifts,
Zia Tanya, Giuseppe, Violetta, Dionisio, Nana,
Gramma, Pas, David, Erika, Uncle Ben, and Aunt Lisa.

Ring-around-the-rosy with Daddy and Erika. Aren't we pretty? Well, Daddy is handsome!

Construction-Worker Anna

Now Anna says "fixin' road" or "Anna fixin' road" whenever she sees any sign of road work.

Philadelphia visit!

It was so nice to spend time with Uncle Michael, Aunt Ashley, and her sisters and dad, Alison, Aimee, and Jay! It was so fun playing with all of the kitties and putting up Christmas decorations! ...and bouncing around with Uncle Michael!

Boy are we beat.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a full house today! 25 people enjoyed a wonderful feast that wouldn't have been possible without the help of all 25! Thanks everyone! Daddy got to use the new oven to make our first family turkey - boy was it delicious!

I got to wear this pretty dress passed down from my cousin Megan, and I had fun posing!

Some nice shots from our celebration.

Three beautiful ladies!

Thanksgiving feast preparations

Gramma came to help set up for our big day and I got to help pat down the napkins at each place setting (very important job). I was wearing my new dress from Puerto Vallerta. Gramma and I got to relax and read stories after all of our hard work. Notice below, something really shocked me, though I can't now remember what it was...must have been good!

Happy Birthday Uncle Michael!

Today I went Little Heights today. This is a place with lots to play with - lots of little kids and lots of fun learning toys and games. We are looking forward to visiting Uncle Michael and Aunt Ashley in Philadelphia on Friday.

Happy 3rd Birthday Don-Don!

Dionisio and I both love our chu-chus, and yummy ice cream birthday cake!

As you can see, I was ready to get comfortable,
but Mommy wanted to get a few shots of my in my pretty dress.

Then "Bana" (Nana), "Knuckle" (Uncle) Bob got a kick out of me,
while I got a kick out of Elmo.

Outdoor fun!

This morning Mommy and I went to the Nature Center in the North Chagrin Metroparks to see the duckies and leaves, and then this afternoon, Mommy, Daddy, and I all went to Euclid Creek Reservation for a walk by the water. Mommy and I can't wait to go walking IN the creek next summer!

Marathons Banning Listening to Music!

Today there was an article about a ban on ipods during marathons; it seems really funny, safer perhaps, but a rule about listening to music?! Halloween and leaf-playing pictures are coming soon, as well as Anna's summer videos! Anna Kathryn is 19 months old today, and more than ever, just a little doll-baby! Happy November and Friday to everyone! Stay warm!
