Disney on Ice

We got tix from Uncle Keith for Disney on Ice. It was so cute! Here's one of my favorite pictures of all time. BTW, that toy we had to have....was really just for Lisa...and it really cost $20.

Here's a picture of the show. They did Lion King, Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch and Peter Pan.
Me and Mommy!

Me and my other Mommy!

Turkey Day 2010

We went home to Valpo (IN) for Turkey Day for our 4th or 5th year in a row. We were lucky to have Mandy (one of my besties) and her hubby Justin join us! We had a great time and even revisited some of our old stomping grounds.
Here is our (shy) little girl hanging out with Auntie and Uncle. :)
Nana and Papa!
Little lady all bundled up.

Tampa - Zoo!

We went to the Lowry Zoo in Tampa, FL. It was a great zoo.
This is Nora in her giraffe hat that she would not take off.
The fountains were probably the most amazing thing that ever happend to her. She played in them for like 30 minutes and we had to drag her away....

BAA! She got to pet the goats.

And feed giraffes!

And watch Mommy NOT get pooped on by birds.

End to a very fun day.

Tampa - Bummin' Around

Ok...this is probably the funniest picture EVER. Don't worry, we were right there. But, we had to get a shot of Nora looking over Tampa...

The pack and play the hotel sent up was awful. It had a giant bar in the middle of it. So, Nora snuggle with us. I hated every minute of it...

Little lady in her shades.

The 2 water babies playing in the pool.

Ready to take on the world. Look at the pose!

Tampa - Clearwater Beach

We went to Clearwater Beach and it was beautiful!
Amazing white sand and playgrounds for the kiddies.

She has NO fear. Ran right into the water.

Nora and her bucket and shovel.
This was probably the most incredible thing in the world to her.

Family pic on the beach.

Trick or Treat?

This was Nora's first official Halloween 'Trick or Treatin.'
She CLEARLY is a giraffe. Although she also was called a 'cute cow' about 50% of the time...
Me and my little giraffe/cow.

After about the 3rd house she started to get the hang of it and wanted to walk all by herself up to the door. No, I didn't cry (it was too cold).

See you later Mommies!

Twinkle Toes

And she sat there completely still...I think we have a princess on our hands.

D.O.G Fun

We went to the dogpark the other day and I brought my nice camera! Here's a shot of Cede running. It's pretty cool.

Mommy and Nora posing for (other) Mommy.
Me and the little lady on a the trail.

Cute pic of her on the bridge.


My First Pumpkin

It was Nora's first year to carve a pumpkin. More like get filled with goo. She just dove right in...

As you can see...


Here is her first official pumpkin!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch in Prescott a couple weeks ago with Lee, Shell and the girls. It was a really cute family owned place and the kids had so much fun.
Here they are on the train. Claudia was up front in first seat.

Playing in the corn kernals. Who knew they could be so much fun?

Look at me Mommy! Nora had a blast.

Classic pic. Need I say more?

Lee, Lisa, Claudia and Ava tried the Spruce Tree Maze...
It said an average of 30 min. They did not come out until an hour later. The place actually closed and Shell and I were standing there when one of the workers came out and said "They're still in there? I actually forgot they went in there!" Needless to say, it was a tough course and we were glad to have them back. :)

Mandy Visits!

One of Lisa's best friends Mandy came to visit a couple weeks ago. It was a lot of fun and Nora thought Mandy was the coolest.

Why does Big Bird not wear pants?
Exactly. He looks best in jeans.

Mandy and Nora on the stairs - this is before Mandy fell down the stairs (without Nora)

Tu Tu Cute

Auntie Amy got me the CUTEST jammies ever...
and it includes a TU-TU!

I look down and all is see is a pretty little lady.

Sorry, I didn't get her with her necklace, braclet and watch....I think she still feels like a princess here. What do you think?

Famous Iron Girl Mommy!

Bear witness, we are all in the presence of greatness....seriously! Lisa got interviewed by WCCO (Channel 4) for running in the IronGirl last weekend.

I was in the house fielding calls from 'Letterman' and 'The View.' Isn't this awesome! I was so proud. I took a ton of pics and Lisa would bike by and Nora would scream "Mommy! Mommy!"

Here's Lisa, Botch and their Mini-Me's. They both did a great job and Nora and Nadia got new necklaces - aka their medals.

Go Mommy, Go!
