10 Years Come and Gone...

This weekend was my 10 Year High School Reunion.
My closest friends from high school all got together and caravaned over to the Reunion.
It was amazing to see how much everyone has changed. It was a little surreal, though, to see people with husbands and children.
Between us we have 7 children (with one more on the way), 4 husbands, one almost fiance, countless bachelors/masters degrees, we have moved all around the country including Ohio and Michigan, we have bought houses and become real adults. And through it all we have stayed such great friends. I love that!
I can't believe it has been 10 years, but now I can't wait for the next reunion so we can all get together again!
I had a great time, guys! Lets get together more often!
By the way.... We missed you, Ryan!

Pumpkin Patch

This is our trip to the Pumpkin Patch....
Here is Liam sitting on his pumpkin.
And Dylan picking out his.

Waiting for the story time to begin... patiently.

Liam decided he wanted a front row seat.

On the hay ride. (By the way, on his back is his monkey backpack. Otherwise known as a baby leash. We are trying the "no stroller" approach.)

Dylan on the hayride.

This is the pumpkin patch last year. Dylan was about to turn 3 and Liam was 11 months old.
Man how time flies.... he still has that mischevious grin, though.

My big boy.

Sixth of Sixth

I was tagged by Cyndy (my mommy) to post the 6th picture in the 6th folder in MY PICTURES.

This is Liam in October of last year after eating an Oreo Cookie. He is 11 months old.

I now tag Becky, Suzette, Katie Corner, Elizabeth Cook, Ryan and Peggy!
