Busy Weekend

We have headed back into our crazy, busy weekends with the holidays approaching. Friday night, we met up with my cousins Frankie and Trish in the city for some dinner and catching up. They were up visiting from Texas and we haven't seen them in over 2 years. We had a great time and it was really great to see them both. Sunday, we headed down to Atlantic City for some rest and play. We had a great time even though the weather was dreary. It's too bad that we didn't win, but we had a lot of fun. Grandma Gladys came along and this was special since it was Jenna's first time down. We took her shopping and swimming. She loves staying at hotels - wonder where she gets that from???

The guy taking the picture cut Jenna out, but us 4 came out good.

NYC Marathon

I can't believe it is November!!!! Jenna and I braved the hurricane warning (it turned out to be a lot of rain and the wind) Jenna hung out with Grandma, Uncle Jason, Kristin and of course Murphy. We took Jenna to the mall and Santa was already there!!! They are really pushing Christmas on us this year. They had a Santa train that Jenna loved. She would have rode that all day if she could have.
Sunday the NYC Marathon came running through NY this weekend. The weather was perfect for running and for those of us watching from the sidelines. It is always exciting to see them run by. We watched them run by with Jen, Mark and Madison. The girls had a great time cheering the runners.

Someone was very excited!

NYC Marathon - look at them go

Halloween 2007

Happy Halloween! Jenna had a very full day between school and trick-or-treating. She started out as a cheerleader for school. Her teacher threw them a party and all the kids got many treats. We headed home so Jenna could change into her Tinkerbelle costume for trick-or-treating. She had a blast this year since she has finally grasped the concept of going to people's houses and if you say trick-or-treat, they give your candy. The weather was great and we really had a lot of fun. Madison and Jennifer came along for the ride and the girls looked so cute together. Enjoy the pictures.
