FF Day and Halloween at the Zoo

I know - it's been a week - I'm sorry. :)

We had a good weekend last week - Jay was still sick, so we didn't do much but hang out at home and watch football. (In case you were wondering - my Indians tanked, Ohio State won, and I'm losing quickly in my fantasy football league)

Alex is starting to talk. His favorite word is Dora (who, by the way, I hear is going to be taking out a restraining order on Alex very soon. His obsession with her is almost frightening).

We got an ice cream cake from DQ for our Forever Family Day. (it then doubled as Jay's birthday cake)

We didn't go to the zoo last Saturday, but did go Thursday night. It was a perfect time to go. It was kind of cold, and it was sort of drizzling when we left. But, when we got there, the skies cleared and there weren't many people there.

Here's our little Puss 'N Boots.

Here's his picture from last year - my little cow!!

Family picture. Doesn't Jay and Alex look great - me - not so much!

Had to include this one - look at that look at Alex's face. He wasn't very happy to be standing still.

Here's our family picture from last year at the same place. :)

Of course we had to wait in line to get Alex's picture taken with the Shrek characters.

My beautiful boy!!!

It has finally hit me that we are now in the part of his life where we are doing things again. We went to the zoo for Halloween again - we are going to the annual pancake breakfast at church again....I think I'm more emotional about this than when he went to these things for the first time.

Everyone have a great weekend and......

I love the this year and last year. It is very emotional and I get goose bumps. Savannah came home on November 16th, so this is our first Halloween, but it will be our second Thanksgiving. We are planning our Forever Family Day celbration.

Looks like you had TONS of fun and I think you look nice in the photos!!!!
