Giving Thanks....

This year I have a lot to be thankful for...I am thankful for my family-- every member near and far. I am thankful for my beautiful daughter, loving husband and sweet baby boy on the way. Most of the time during the year I feel like I miss out on the little fun things that go on at Aida's school -- due to work or work travel. But every year her school throws a Thanksgiving celebration the day before the holiday and this year I took off to attend with Aida. I had so much fun making some of the food for her class party and attending the lunch with her. She just lit up when she saw me in her classroom. Words can not describe how grateful I am to have these little moments with her. My heart is just filled and happy when she tells me how happy she is and how much fun she is having at school. Here are some pictures from Aida's school luncheon.

look at those two kids in her class eyeing her turkey...they had to eat the lunch their mom brought them...I think they wanted some yummy Thanksgiving food :)

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone :)

Baby #2 at 28 weeks

Yesterday -- we had our 3D sonogram with baby #2. This baby has the most precious cheeks and lips. He only weighs about 2 pounds now but I am telling you that most of his two pounds are all in his cheeks! It is always so fun to see what the baby looks like in these pictures and to then see when the baby arrives if this what the baby actually looks like in person. We are still working on getting ready for baby -- working on his room, figuring out his name getting the things we need to be prepared for his arrival. The walls are painted. Today we got the carpet cleaned and his chair cleaned for his room. Slowly but surely -- it is coming together. Aida is also warming up to the idea of having a baby brother. Instead of calling him "shrek" she has at least moved to calling him "baby brother." This is better....

Here are the pics of Baby #2 at 28 weeks...well into 7 months of pregnancy and looking forward to making it to the finish line :)

Look at his yummy cheeks!!!

Sucking his thumb...

A great shot of his precious face...

One of my favorites...he looks so peaceful here.

We cant wait to meet you baby :) We love you already.
Mommy, Daddy and your Big Sister Aida

Nesting and a Parascope

So as you know my nesting is in full swing which has resulted in closet clean outs, painting, a little remodeling, lots of donations to Good Will and of course many trips to Lowes and Home Depot. So, on our Saturday morning trip to Lowes, Aida heard what she called loud "baming." I had no idea what she was talking about but when she lead me to it -- Lowes was putting on their Kids Club class where tons of kids were working on their Para scopes. The "baming" was the banging noise of the kids using the hammers. After seeing all the fun, we sat down and made one too...here she is working with daddy on her Para scope. Too Cute...

We love you Aida...

Halloween 2010!

This Halloween was so much fun with Aida. Aida started many weeks ago deciding on her Halloween costume for this year. First she wanted to be a scary ghost. For those of you that know how girly and creative I am you know this was like a wound to my heart BUT I was willing to go with it. A few weeks later that changed to a witch...so we headed to the Halloween store and purchased not one but two witch costumes because Aida just could not decide. About 2 weeks before Halloween, she then decided she wanted to be a princess. Yeah! So she then picked out her Cinderella costume and we were in business. She had so much fun. She was able to trick or treat with both her friend Kiana and then a little later with daddy and her cute friends next door.
The classroom pumpkin carving contest at school. She wanted her picture taken with her class pumpkin.

I vote for Aida as my favorite pumpkin...
Here she was in the bounce house at the neighborhood block party. She loved bouncing around with her friend Kiana.

Look at that face...that is the fake smile she gives me when she would really like to be doing something else :)

Trick or Treating

Here she is posing with a random person who came to our house dressed as a werewolf. We were really impressed with his costume. She wasn't too sure of letting him touch her but she did want her picture taken...my brave girl!

Getting ready to go trick or treating with our neighbors. Look at how cute they all are...

Alex did a great job of carving pumpkins this year. Here she is posing with her daddy's handy work.

We loved every bit of preparing for Halloween and celebrating with Aida this year. It was spoooktakular!!!

We love you Aida!

Alex and I went to the Boys & Girls Clubs Charity Gala on Saturday night and spent time with our friends the Riccardi's, the Zepps and the Ramsey's. We had a great time.
