Preschool & Babies

Miss V started preschool yesterday ! She is so cute with her book bag that is as big as her. She seems sooo much tinier than my other kiddos when they started preschool. She will go 4 days a week for a couple hours in the morning. which I am looking forward to, because this will give her much needed playtime with friends while I am working with Zane in the morning. All last week she was determined she was going to HIGH SCHOOL. I'm not sure where she picked that up but it was too cute coming from a 30lb little stinker ! Friday she will dart riding the bus. Which is also too cute. She has a little harness (since she is a preschooler) that will hook into the bus seat. Hey I'd like about 3 more of those for the older kids in our van :)
Aunt TI TI also had her baby yesterday morning ! Desmond Patrick. Weighing in at 7lbs. 5oz & 21 1/2 in. long. He is SUPER cute ! Congrats Tiff & Tony !!!!!!!! & welcome to the family baby Desi :)

From the hills of Ohio to the hills of Virginia

Vania and new distant cousin Juliette. Vania loves babies !!!

The Christmas Cabin at Bittersweet Farms

We are still making the family rounds ! A couple weekends ago we went down to my Aunt Toni's house to introduce Vania to my Cousin and her family that were in from Boston.My aunt owns a bed & breakfast In the Hocking Hills area. So we spent the night in one of the cabins and made it a mini weekend getaway. The kids had a ball. Lots of room to run & play! Rides on the tractor with Great Uncle Steve. A bonfire and a hot tub ! Vania kept asking to go into the bath tub ( hot tub ).Which eventually we got around to & then it became hard to lure them out :)
On our way down Adam loves to go super fast over some of the smaller hills so you get butterflies in your stomach. The kids LOVE it too. Vania hasn't quite caught on to the fact that dad can't just make the car do that fancy trick. Like a hoopdie lowrider or something. So every 5 seconds after the first hill she'd squeal "Daddy do it again, do it again". We were glad when a perfect hill would finally show up on the horizon as to not disappoint.

Hillbilly Waterslide

Last weekend we went down to Virginia to Adam's family reunion. Also a blast ! Vania was held & hugged for two days solid . She loved the fireworks and hillbilly waterslide butI have to say her favorite part was BINGO. At the reunion the kids ( and adults too :) play until everyone wins in the round. Her little face lite up every time she called out BINGO and went over to receive her prize.By the end she had a whole pile of loot in front of her.Can't wait until Christmas !

And finally we got a picture of Adam's beloved sign we see every year & never stop to take.

And discovered a new sign, in my honor to look for every year. I could barely get a picture since it was on the other side of the road. It was Bambi's Farm Market :) Maybe if it's there next year we'll stop in.

That's all I got for now ! Later.
