At the lamest fall festival of all time in St.Petersburg. Don't go to it, ever. But here are a couple of pics anyway.
Papaw, Tristan and Daddy with the antique car sitting on the porch of the "print shop".
The 4 of us by a kind of cool tree (did I mention it was a lame festival, not too many kodak moments)
These others were at Bahama Breeze for Taylor's birthday.
Birthday girl Taylor, me and my dad
Uncle Jonathan and Tori - after they had finished telling each other every riddle they each knew, both nerds, love em both!
Stay tuned, pics of pumpkin patch and costumes to come, later this week!

Laurie we can go out for a little bit right?!
I am not a huge shopping freak despite that this post makes me seem like one. But I do love a good sale. But more than that - to me it officially kicks of the Christmas season and I LOVE Christmas. The baking, decorating, shopping, wrapping, the musicals, the day trips and celebrations in the community, the parades, and of course special times with family.
I feel Christmasy just thinking about it.

We spent the evening on the Safety Harbor Pier. A cute little manatee peeked his nose out at us a couple of times. A sting ray molested a pier support directly below us. Swarms of extra large minnows flipped out each and every time we dropped a line in the water. And we watched this guy with a huge net bring in a lot of fish.
Unfortunately we caught nothing. 2 trips fishing with the new poles. 2 trips without any fish. And the phrase of the evening - "this is boring".
This year Tristan so far wants to be a Bucs player, red Spiderman, black Spiderman, Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalk, a dog and a hot dog (saw the costume, thought it was funny).
Tori would like to be Princess Leia, a pirate, a princess, an M&M or a snow princess (yes we still live in FL).
Oy vey. So this weekend I told them we would go out shopping and they needed to decide...so stay tuned!

She has to build a castle - which sounds fun but do not be fooled. It has to be 18 by 18 - CANNOT be made of any building materials like legos, clay, wood, etc - and must include the following: moat, drawbridge, tower, turret, keep, bailey, gatehouse, and a portcullis (that crisscrossing gate thing inside the front door).
And she wants to make it out of fabric...I tried to talk her into sugar cubes but when the girls mind is made up, its made up.
Me: Do the girls like you at school Tristan?
Me: Do they chase the other boys?
Me: Do they chase you?
Me: Well how come they like you so much?
Tristan: Mom (you know in that tone like I know nothing at all), I AM a very nice boy!
Glad we don't have self esteem issues :-)

1. I can touch my tongue to my nose.
2. I share a birthday with my brother, he is NOT my twin.
3. I am addicted to crossword puzzles.
4. I hate cooking but love to bake.
5. I am old music junkie - my mp3 player has everything from Under the Boardwalk to Thriller on it.
Have you done this? If you have not posted 5 things about you that we might now know than do it!
