Conversation With Joe

Here's a short video of one of many conversations I have with Joe on a daily basis.  He is a very social baby...loves eye contact and seems to have a lot to say (Hmmm...does this remind you of anyone else in our family???).  Walk away from him while he is busy gazing at you and sharing his thoughts and he is NOT a happy camper.  

Trip to Davidson

Last week the kiddos and I spent a few days in Davidson with Nana and Pop.  We were in great need of a change in scenery and some time with family.  We all had a wonderful time!!!  I don't think Joe stopped smiling the entire time he was there and Maggie was in the best of moods hanging with Nana, Pop, and her aunties, uncles and cousins.  It made me realize how much I miss all of my family in Davidson and it also made me appreciate small-town life for a few days.  There are not many places left where you can take the kids for a walk "into town" and romp around on campus.  I'm just disappointed that I didn't 'bump' into Stephen Curry.  ;-) Anyway, here are some photos from the trip.
At the well on campus:

Joe, just being sweet Joe...

With Nana and Pop!

Never knew a plain old tennis court and a ball could make this little girl so happy!

Cousin Mateo hamming it up for the camera.  Maggie and Mateo are just 4 months apart.  They were really sizing each other up at the dinner table!  So cute!

Having Oreos with Nana, Liam, and Maddy!

Maggie LOVED playing with her big girl cousins Attie (who sadly I did not get any pictures of) and Maddy.  Talk about a tongue twister of names!

Here's Maddy cracking Maggie up!

The Little BOO-meisters!

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!  Here are some photos from our evening.  First, we have Maggie, the fairy who called herself Tinkerbell, and said "Oh, Wow!" every time she saw a bowl of candy.  Then, little Joe, the adorable Dragon, who seemed perfectly content in his big puffy costume! 

LOVE this picture with Daddy!

At our first stop, "Aunt Donna's", Maggie just stood there staring at the bowl of candy.  So, I tried to show her how Joe would take a piece.  After a few houses, she DEFINITELY got the idea!

I'm still not sure she realizes you eat this stuff!  She just totes it all from place to place and piles it in different containers...or on her lap!
