fall flavors


Pepere came down for a visit, and we treated him to a pancake breakfast; so he treated Zachary to a walk and a giant leaf pile to jump into!

This is the perfect time of year for a warm and cuddly baby girl. Bonus points when she's dressed in polar fleece and she's nice and soft too!

Not a Creature was stirring, not even a...Yak?

Fridays and Saturdays are KARATE days! Z has been learning so much, from what to tell a stranger, "BACK OFF AND LEAVE ME ALONE!" To how to do blocks, punches and kicks and how to play on a team!

Z has gotten so used to Elara's "fuzzin" that it's no big thing anymore. He just keeps smiling for the camera. :)

My friend, the Frog

Z always did enjoy a good whale, seems E has a similar love for frogs!


Take a picture of a three year old, and you will have a precious memory to treasure forever.

This was the first year Zachary was really able to fully participate in Halloween. Maybe because he finally understood the concept of getting candy at every house we went to. It definitely helped to have Z's buddy the fireman, I mean, Aiden with. Aiden lead the charge, ringing doorbells and showing Zachary how to say, "Trick or Treat." We had fun trekking through the dark neighborhood--most of our neighbors were still without power thanks to hurricane Sandy! What a haul Zachary got! It helps that he had a cute Tiger Lily there to help persaude the neighbors to give out extras!
