christmas time

this is not actually a post about Christmas. This is a post using the holidays as an excuse as to why I haven't been here in a while (and for the photo bomb). But to be honest...I like photo bombs.

What can I say? I'm a visual person.

So, here they are at a sweet 9 months.











This might be my favorite picture of all time.











This weekend we're going to see Santa! Wish us luck! Next week....mama's getting a new camera. Watch out for video bombs!

Happy Halloween!

Witness the cuteness of Batman and Night Owl.





I'm sorry for all the similar pictures...but it was our first time trying to take pictures in public (we don't go many places...still) and we were a bit nervous.





The entire time Win (Batman) was coughing up a storm. Just coughing and coughing and coughing. Then I saw a piece of grass hanging out of his mouth and realized he had just tried to swallow it (way to go mom and dad).

Win was Batman. Holt was Night Owl. Who is Night Owl, you ask? Well friends...you see there are different universes of comic books. And the different universes have characters (at least that's what the hubs tells me). For example, Spiderman and Batman are not in the same universe and will not be in the same comic book (or so I'm told). So apparently, Batman is in the DC universe and Night Owl is a "batman-like-character" in another universe that's not DC or Marvel (written by the guy who wrote V for Vendetta...bet you didn't know that that was a comic book first...you learn something new every day).

In other words (whew), our kids were the same thing for Halloween...just in different universes. Get it? Funny right?







Truth be told, I found a really awesome owl costume pattern from Martha Stewart (you can find it here) and the hubs came up with the rest. I found the batman insignia on pinterest and made the hats from this pattern. I made them with felt and probably should have used stretchy fabric...but I'm lazy. I added the ears free hand while the boys were napping and we watched our $2 copy of Reality Bites (I LOVE that movie).

The rest of the clothes we had and will still use after Halloween.

I'm pretty excited about our first Halloween. There was no trick-or-treating...but there will be plenty in the future. For the Perrys...we had an early night...like usual.

Beautiful wedding weekend

This past weekend I was lucky enough to participate in my great friend, Mary Beth's, wedding. Here are a few snapshots from the weekend.

She was such a beautiful bride and the entire day was full of love (even though Hurricane Sandy was right outside). Mary Beth put on a strong, sweet face and didn't let a
littlelot of rain phase her.

It was the perfect day.
