Every year we head to MGM for fake snow and frosty fun!
Since last night was our first REALLY cold night (for Florida, anyway),
we hopped in the car to join in the festivities!
Thanks, Carrie Friday, for putting us in the Christmas spirit a little early! :)

We carved with friends again this year, and here are the results:

Our Precious Little Owlet

When asked what she wanted to be this year for Halloween, Abbey confidently said, "I wanna be a owl and say whoo ,whoo." So, Mommy rose to the task and created a precious little costume (yes, I'm proud of my work) that Abbey was very happy with. We took her to Boo at the Zoo as a preview, and she had a blast - even though it rained and we saw very few animals.

She worn her costume again for the main event - trick-or-treating with Daddy in our neighborhood, and, again, she had a blast! Who knows what she'll dream up for me to create next year! :)

Pumkin' Patchin'

For the third year in a row, we visited a pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins and have a little photo shoot. This year, we joined the MEtime crew at the Wesley United Methodist patch, and had a great time. Abbey got to sit and listen to stories, eat a homemade cookie, and get her very own mini-pumpkin; all before helping Mommy and Daddy pick out ours!

She had a blast, and even posed for a few shots. Enjoy! :)

Cruisin' the Caribbean - Better late than never!

Okay, so now that I'm back at work I have even less time to blog, so this one's short on words and big on pics. Enjoy!
Formal Night - Daddy's little Date

Fisher Price Playtime with Daisy in the Viking Crown Lounge

Pony Time - She loved it!

Our Last Dinner

Abbey loved Aenin (actually, Erin, but the other is Abbey's pronunciation)

This was our 2nd year seeing Gregory - we were thrilled that he was our assistant waiter! We'll miss him next year!

Here's Little miss with her crackers from Bernard.

We shared this experience with many other people, however we seem to have too much fun being in the moment that we forget to take pics. Oh, well - if you missed it, join us next year!

Gator Girl (in honor of the birth of Logan Riley)

If she hadn't been before now, Abbey is a total Gator Girl!
(however, she still cheers for her Knights, too)
She loved matching T and Uncle (who gave her the dress),
and points out gators everywhere!
Here she is with one of her favorite friends, a lion she named Paw. He comes to visit whenever T and Uncle do (he lives at their house).
*...and for those who have no idea who Logan Riley is, he's an Auburn boy who was born the day Abbey got this dress! (hee, hee) :)

Too Big!

So Miss Abbey has a new favorite toy - her Heels, as she calls them.

Gone are the days of not sitting still for photos - she poses, now, and asks for photo shoots!
Are we in for it, or what?!!

Catching Up - Sanibel 2007

Okay, so here are a few of the long-awaited pics from our trip to Sanibel Island in August (if you qualify, you'll get the rest via e-mail :P). We had a nice, relaxing escape, complete with stress-free family time (yes, that can happen)!
Abbey decided she wanted to be like T - check her out!

Swimming was a favorite for all of us.

However, shopping ...
... and riding in the car through Ding Darling (just like Uncle Chris) were sheer agony for Abbey.
She very much preferred playing with the puppets T made for her, among other things.

Yes, Jeff loved his Pinocchio's - a little too much by the look of it!
