Surprise, Surprise!

Mom was surprised when she walked into the kitchen last night.
Yes, I can climb and I can do it all by myself. I'll guess she will have to lock away the step stool now.

Santa Claus Parade - Part 2

This weekend was the Santa Claus parade at Grandma's. Since last weekends parade was such a huge success mom and I went to check it out and have a nice visit at the same time.I wore my festive shirt.
And Grandma decorated up the wagon.
Zen decided that the wagon was a pretty sweet way to travel. Mom and Grandma really got a work out pulling us both around town.
The visit from the big man himself was pretty exciting. I loved all the bands and floats. I'm hoping that I will soon get to tell Santa what I want for Christmas in person!I was so exhausted from all the excitement that I took a little snooze on the way back to Grandma's house. Cousin Zen kept me cozy and warm. Thanks for the great visit Grandma!

Santa Claus Parade - I am so blogging about this!

Read the shirt people!
Today was the Santa Claus parade. It has been tradition that Dad and Mom go to the parade with Aunt Katie and Uncle Mark, this tradition started long before any babies were present.
Beej and I being there really just provides the adults with an excuse for their continued attendance.Aunt Katie made us matching parade shirts and then tricked us with Smarties for sitting through a photo shoot.
In thirteen years we will both be so embarrassed by these photos.
Thanks for the great tradition and the great day. I'm so excited for the kick off of the Christmas season!

Gamer in Training

Lola found Daddy's XBox headset and loves wearing it around the house. Sometimes she turns on the XBox, gets her controller and puts on her head set; all ready to play.
Please ignore our pj's in this photo, it was early!

Fall is here

Our house is on a tiny little lot, so we were surprised at the large amount of leaves that fell on it. It took us 10 bags and lots of help to get all these leaves to the curb. Stefano and Rider came over to help, thanks neighbours!

Pepe Le Cute

Halloween weekend was big time fun!
I wore my skeleton shirt until it was time to get my costume on.
It was a long day of waiting for trick or treating, but mom kept us busy with Halloween themed activities, like pumpkin carving. I was - of course - a very big help with Daddy's skull pumpkin!
Mom was super proud of her bird in a cage pumpkin. I think that it would have been better had she let me help her!
We headed over to Beej's house for the actual trick or treating. I put on most of my costume to show off my cuteness to all the neighbours before hoping in the car.
Beej couldn't wait to go to the other houses, so he started trick or treating at home!
Mom and Dad were FSI Agents. That is Federal Stunk Investigation Agents!
The trick or treaters head out for candy!

Beej was a very good trick or treater and made sure to get extra treats for me, even when I wasn't fast enough to make it up to the door.
The traditional dumping of the candy bag for inspection!
Happy Halloween everyone! I hope that your Halloween was also super fun!
