What we've been up to

Not too much going on these days. It has been rainy all week but now the glorious sun is out.
Last week we had a cupcake date with BFF Kat. She knows how to eat a cupcake. Lily was more interested in her milk. Once again, her father's daughter.
Swine flu is in full swing in the ER. Here is our mascot. Beanie baby H1N1
We went to the zoo last week for a few hours. The new penguin exhibit is a favorite. Now that schools are back in it's less crowded and we can get a close up view.
Yet Lily is more interested in climbing the rocks.
Hope your having a happy fall because winter is well on it's way. Brrrrr and a boo hoo! At least winter means Santa. We are all working on being nice. Lily has had a bad cold this week and teething so she really needs to sharpen up on the being nice part.

Leaf me alone!

Most of the time Lily humor's me for a photo shoot. The exception to the rule is when it involves something "yucky" or unknown. Leaves qualify as unknown and yucky. Last year she sat quite happily for her fall photo shoot. Let's see how this year goes.

We look like we are enjoying it.
No, I am not enjoying this.
Is that a smile? It looks like one but it is a whine.
No really, I do NOT want to be sitting in them!
If you put one in my lap I will pick it up long enough to toss it aside.
I guess you can hold one but don't expect me to!
I think next year will go over better. She was not sure about pumpkins at first but now they are great friends. We still go visit our pumpkin on our stoop (we didn't carve ours, too lazy).

I like to get annual photos so we can compare them over the years. I can imagine all the complaints and whining in the years to come but TOO bad! You see Californians, we have LEAVES to pose with in the fall. I can mail you some if you want to do a fall photo shoot. Puffer vests on little ones are awful cute too aren't they?
