A little girl and her doll

Erin has had this water baby since she was not even a year old. Her name is Emily. About six months ago we lost Emily and have not been able to find another until this past weekend. When we finally found her again (the exact same one!) Erin was almost in tears she was so happy. She hasn't let Emily out of her sight since then. She is the sweetest little mommy to Emily and loves to nurse her, change her and play with her. I just love watching her with Emily.

Fun adventures

We had a great weekend. On Saturday we spent some time at Hyde Park, doing a bit of Christmas shopping and letting the kids enjoy the park and fountain. We come here every year closer to Christmas to take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Hyde Park. This is one of our favorite places to visit. On Sunday we spent the day at Centro Ybor and Channelside. We parked in Ybor and took one of the trollies to Channelside to have lunch and watch the cruise ship depart. Erin and the boys love to watch them leave. It was nice to sit outside in the beautiful weather,
watch the kids play and just relax.

Sibling love

I love how affectionate my children are towards
one another.
Of course they have arguments like all siblings
do but as a whole they really respect and love
one another and I am proud of them for that.

A lady bug and a mask

We had a great time trick or treating last night.
Sean stayed home to pass out candy, wearing his puppy ears and tail,
Brendan rode around the neighborhood with his friends wearing a mask
and a big group of us from the neighborhood walked with the smaller children.
They were all so cute and Erin had a blast collecting candy from everyone.
