Boo to YOU!
Thought you might like to see the costumes of choice this year...
Kayla chose to be Raggedy Ann :) It all transpired from the red and white striped socks that I bought her last year around Christmas time. I thought she might get some use out of them for her Holiday Dance Show and she never did. Plus, she was desperate this year to color her hair. Thank goodness she recruited Gramma to sew the costume! She looks cute, eh? She went to her Halloween Dance at school last Friday and won a ribbon for most creative costume too :)
Josh decided to be a Ninja this year! It was all about the props :) I had a pair of foam nunchucks that were still at my Mom's from a dance I did a million years ago...and that was the clincher...he was going to be a Ninja. Plus, I'm dressing as a Geisha (photos to come) and I suggested that Tim dress as a Ninja so we could match...well, Josh heard this as said, "Mommy, I'll be your Ninja!" and the deal was sealed :)

Steppin' Out with My Baby...
Meg Ryan and Jessica Rabbit! (hehe)
Well this was certainly an Anniversary Party like no other...much like their wedding was 15 years ago, Denise and Gino do everything "full out!". The soiree took place at the gorgeous Mansion on Delaware and we were greeted by adoring fans and paparazzi. Everyone was dressed to impress and we all got the red carpet treatment.
Dancing to "It Had to be You" ~ D&G's first dance at their wedding.
The Girlz ~ Ellen, Faith, Lori & Me
Festive Desserts :) Yes, I take pictures of food!
The evening was filled with amazing food, wonderful champagne (which I had WAY too much of), and the best entertainment. Some the kids from the studio performed some their show stopping routines from the recital this year. Even the adult's joined in and busted out the hip-hop routine we just learned, although I'm certain it was after a few too many cocktails and it showed :) And what D&G event wouldn't be complete without a full rendition of "Thriller!" Fun times!!!
'Cause this is Thriller!
It's not a party until someone starts dancing on their head!
Thanks Denise & Gino for an amazing evening, and may you have many more wonderful years together.

We went to our first Corn Maize last Saturday night. Friends of ours, Barb and Cheryl, accompanied us to a fantastic dinner at Bob & John’s and then we were off to the Corn Maize in Wheatfield. It was an absolute muddy mess (thank goodness we wore boots) and we completed all 3 courses within a couple hours (mostly due to the smart thinking by Tim who captured a pic of the map at the beginning on his phone)…otherwise we might still be out there!

What a glorious Columbus Day we had on Monday! We traveled out to Letchworth State Park to do some hiking...we couldn't have ordered a better day. The weather was absolutely perfect and the scenery was stunning.
We did a 2.5 mile hike that was a half mile straight down, 1.5 miles across and then another half mile straight up! It was a tough one, but I managed to get some great pics along the way. We even met a few critters too...
Kayla saved this fuzzy, little guy from being squashed (after it scared the crap out of her)...
These chipmunks were everywhere...but they sure were quick!
Family photo op...
And my favorite of the day...
Gosh I love this time of year...just wish winter wasn't right around the corner.

Ok...catching up on my blogging again :) Josh turned 7 on October 1st...and we've been so busy lately, we're still celebrating!
Football season is winding down (thank God!)...one more week left! His last game will be next Saturday in Eden.
In the meantime...we've already started hockey practice and his first game is November 1st. Josh will be playing in the Mites Division this year for West Seneca...and will be sporting a new color. He's been a Moose for the past two seasons and he's thrilled to be an Islander this year!
