We went out adventuring today!  Errands, lunch and random shopping with Uncle Robert . (Liam LOVED that hat when he saw it in Target,and Robert obliged…calls it his “Pirate Bone Man Hat”, and has not taken it off his head in five hours. LOL!) Anyway, we stopped in at the Farmer’s Market again, where Liam visited…

Pumpkins & Zoo Dates!

Liam has been having a blast lately…although that’s not out of the norm for Mr. Sunny Attitude. We renewed our Membership to the Zoo, and that combined with a week of gorgeous weather has seen us there a handful of times in the past ten days. We haven’t gone full on into Fall – mainly…

He’s going to grow up and run a Soup Kitchen, I just know it…

Just now as I was putting Liam to bed, the last book we read was one of his favorites since babyhood…Tomie dePaola’s Three Bears and Other Tales. We love us some Tomie in this house; Grannie Vee loves him, and Nonna Florence did too, so it’s family tradition. The three stories included in this particular…

Ils ne sont pas nés d’hier!

Yesterday, Liam was rifling through the DVD drawer and came across one of my favorite films. He held the cover reverently, looked at me with eyes full of wonder and said “MAMA. I found a KNIGHT in the DRAWER.” He was referring to Les Visiteurs or The Visitors with Jean Reno and Christian Clavier. Now,…
