Well, as you can see, i FINALLY figured out how to change the background on the blog.  I was trying to do the same thing the other night on the laptop and it just wasn't working.  Maybe it had to be done on the main computer-who knows?!?  Anyhow, hope y'all like the new look for now. :)

These next 2 pics go out to my brother, M who was having a good 'ol time playing w/ the girls!  As you can see they just LOVVVVVE him!
Since I found out I have a few followers out there that i didn't know i had . . . these pics  are for you! heehee!
These are my cousins sons J & T-they are wonderful children and play SOOO great w/ the kids!  We love getting together with them!  G just looks up at them like they're stars! And, of course they are! :)

And these are their proud parents-you guys are great!!!! Thanks for visiting the blog D!

Random Friday!

These pictures were totally unsolicited! I was sitting on my computer . . . and G says, "mommy, look at us-we're sitting SO nicely!!!"  So of course I grabbed my camera SO fast and took the pictures.  Trust me, if i didn't take the pictures, no one would believe! HAHA! Just kidding . . . sort of.

We have ALL been so sicky around here w/ nasty colds-it's the worst! 

By the way, i'm really looking to update my background for my blog and am having a hard time doing it.  There are SO many pretty blogs out there, it's hard to compete! haha!  If anyone knows how to do it step by step, please let me know! :)  I was looking at the cutest blog on the street website.

Don't worry, no one got hurt here! Just a little afternoon fun!

What a GREAT Fall weekend!

What a GREAT weekend we all had.  My blog loads pictures backwards, so the pictures start at the end, and go backwards. :)

The weather was beautiful so we spent plenty of time outdoors.  Started the weekend at the park having tons of fun.  On Saturday, visited the Pumpkin Patch for our annual pumpkin picking. Then, enjoyed a delicious dinner at "KiKu" in Naperville w/ the Grandparents and brother.  The kids even used chopsticks! Kaiya was eating her fried rice w/ little chopsticks-i wish i had my camera!!!

Sunday, the family went to see my best friend B run the Chicago Marathon.  This is her 9th marathon-she's amazing! I'm so proud of her! She did awesome!!!

THEN, we came home and went off to a carnival.  Most likely the last one of the year.  I'm a carnival-junkie!  Anyhow, long story short-it was a Fun filled, exciting, great, busy, busy weekend!  And, did i say the kids had a great time too! :)

 Day at the Park

This is one of my favorite dresses!  I bought it at a resale shop for about $6.00-it's a Tommy Hilfiger dress-what a great deal!

K is a bit of a rascal, as you can tell by the videos below.  We were waiting for big sis O to get home from school at the bus stop.  She and G were having a lot of fun chasing nasty mosquitos and looking for creatures in the sewer.
