The 100th Day of Kindergarten!

Today is Liam’s 100th Day of Kindergarten, and his teacher asked the kids to come to school today dressed as if they were 100 years old.

Well…as you can imagine, Liam was 100 percent behind THIS idea – he LOVED it!  So, after some thrift store hunting, we came up with the perfect ensemble.  Here he is, just about to head to school for the fun and festivities. :)

"Well, let's get this show on the road! I'm not gettin' any younger!"

Add a mustache, and he could be Barney Miller!

Have you ever seen a happier centerian?

Had to throw in one "Old School" photo...yuk, yuk, yuk!

Halloween 2010

…was a blast! Brian’s sister Megan is in town visiting, and the four of us left a ton of candy on the front porch and trucked on over to The Cary’s neighborhood so Liam could go Trick or Treating with Maggie and Hannah like last year. Fun was had by all, and by the last…

Pumpkin Patch – Take Two

We hit our regular Farm Market last weekend to pick up another pumpkin and a bale of hay for our “Halloween Yard Decor”.  Couldn’t hold Liam off any longer – he apparently LOVES everything about Autumn.  Honestly – he’s so excited for Halloween, Thanksgiving, jackets, leaf piles – if it has to do with Fall,…

Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

Since everyone who reads this blog is likely a friend or family member, you already know about our weekend o’ sick…so I’m just going to skip over that except to say that thankfully we all woke feeling healthy and ready to enjoy the sunshine today. Hallelujah! (No…seriously.) So, Liam and I decided to go on…

Jamestown, Pirates & the End of Summer

We didn’t spend this past weekend (Labor Day) at the beach…as is traditional around here.  While the calendar and the first day of public school dictate the end of summer to most folks, we’ve got an extra week – Liam doesn’t start school ’till the 13th. Since we’re two blocks away and can walk down…

July: WHOOSH! Gone.

Good Lord – how is it that this summer is flying by?!?  Well, let’s see…you knew we had soccer from the last post.  We had Summer Camp, Aunt Megan came to visit, then Grannie Vee, then we had swimming lessons – all of which were interspersed with playdates, trips to Aunt Eva & Uncle George’s…

Sum-sum-SUMMERTIME!

Holy Cow – I feel like a heel for not posting anything here in over a month! Summer is starting off with a bang and shows no sign of slowing, but I promise to make a more concerted effort to get pictures up – even if they’re “on the fly” like these! (Remember, you can…

Pele…Beckham…O’Laughlin?

Well, okay – maybe elevating Liam to the dizzying heights achieved by soccer’s elite is a *bit* premature.  But, you have to start somewhere, right? And he has… Last night was his first Pee Wee Soccer practice! Now, this was a fairly momentous occasion, as it marked Liam’s first foray into “Team Sports”.  Since he’s…

The Lost Clancy Brother…?

So…back on St. Patrick’s Day, I played some Irish Music for Liam in the car on the way to school.  All I happened to have with me was a Clancy Brothers’ CD of Irish Drinking Songs, but I popped it in anyway thinking it would just be that one time, just for the duration of…

Easter!

Let me just get this out of the way:  we didn’t make it to Mass on Easter Sunday.  I know, I know…*sigh*.  I’ll do better. We DID make it to an Easter Egg Hunt the day before, though.  Well, I say “Easter Egg Hunt”…what I really mean is “Reinactment of ‘Braveheart’”.  Never have I seen…
