November 24, 2007 - Chilly trip to the park!

After one last visit to see "MawMaw" (Colin's Great Grandma), we stopped at the park for just a few minutes and it was definitely chilly! Colin was all laughs on the swing being silly with Mama and wearing one of Grandpa's hats.

November 22, 2007 - Colin's DIGGER license

Thank you 1000 times over to the best Great Uncle in the whole world for giving Colin this cool experience on Thanksgiving! Colin helped drive the digger down the road and also got to move the bucket up and down. If we weren't ALREADY obsessed with trucks and diggers, WE ARE NOW!

Colin gets to visit his new friend Jayden again while Mama, new mom Kristin and their friend Stephanie get to catch up. Jayden is so tiny and such a cute baby!Stephanie thinks that she and new hubby Brandon may wait just a while longer before expanding their family after this afternoon of bouncing and infant cooing :)

November 2, 2007 - Papa's helper!

Papa came up to visit and watch Colin while Mama went to NY and also helped a lot around the house and to "winterize" outside before the first snowfall! Colin sure loves his Grandpa... and also loves to help him with whatever he may be doing!

Helping to empty a furniture box...

Helping to clean the gutters...

Helping to rake the leaves...

Helping to measure the windows for new treatments...

Wow, thanks for all of the help from Papa and Colin!!!

October 31, 2007 - Happy Halloween!

Here's Lori, Brendan and Lauren the Witch and Colin shaking candy he got from Carol
The Rizzos stopped by and here are our little bugs- Bella the ladybug and Colin the spider! Also, Colin in line with all of the kids mezmerized with the display next door!

The Reas invited us over for a fun night of trick or treat in Tosa on Halloween night! Although Brendan wasn't feeling the best, we all still had a good time handing out candy, playing in the leaves and checking out Carol and Chick's spooky Halloween display next door!
