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…

‘Twas the Night Before Easter

Coloring Eggs. Notice in the photo below that Liam is “working” on the pink one… …he was opening it to find the “JELLY PEENS”. (He was less than pleased to find a yolk instead.) The rest of the eggs managed to survive unscathed. Just a little while ago, I heard a noise. I got up…
