Happy Halloween 2011

In Venedocia, a little pumpkin and her big brother, the dragon headed out to trick or treat!! I love how they call Mya "sisser"!

At Meme's house, Sarah and Molly got ready to trick or treat by working on their witchcraft spells...
Doesn't Molly look like she could really put a spell on you?

 And just look at Sarah Rose... very "witchy" behavior!  She is actually "defying gravity" just like her favorite theater character, Elphaba from Wicked!

 Molly was "wicked" at it too!

Can you hear her cackle?  Ha ha ha...

I can't even tell you how many takes it took to get these shots!!  A lot of jumping off furniture was involved!!  But, boy, was it fun!

  Here's how we did it...
Just a quick jump off the ottoman while Meme was low on the ground shooting upwards!

Beckie and Donny took the girls around my neighborhood since Molly missed trick or treating by their house yesterday while at the play with me!
 Two little witches off on the hunt!
 This little witch got lots of goodies...
 So did this little witch!

My Colorado gem also went trick or treating tonight!  Here's Layla bug with her mommy and daddy, who are all dressed to get some treats too!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
Sharing with Communal Global... Tuesdays around the world!

I miss you Dave!

The Princess at the Palace... Palace Theater, that is!

Molly and I went to the Cleveland Playhouse to see this...

As you know, we shopped first and Molly picked just the right dress to wear!  Her sister Sarah is usually my theater date but not this time~  Molly was getting to have a turn going to the theater with Meme!  She was so excited!

We took a few pictures before we left... just us girls!

We were so excited!

She also got a new coat and hat...

She looked adorable!!  All our friends in the red coats at the theater stopped by our seats to say Hello to her and tell her how darling she looked!   She told them all it was her "FIRST TIME"!  The parking attendant, who was a kindly grandpa kind of guy,  even blew a kiss her way and said 
"Enjoy the show little darling"

Using my Iphone, we snapped a few in the lobby!

A Princess at the Palace!

On our way out we pass thru the room with a ceiling that is full of stars...

and just like her sister Sarah, Molly took the time to lay down and look up at all the twinkling stars!

Oh what a fun day!  The play was very good~ Molly loved her big day with Meme!  She hugged me and thanked me for asking her this time!    She kept saying... "They are really real up there!"  
I love our Playhouse Square Theater District!  We are so lucky in Cleveland to have it!   
Now... who gets to see The Adams Family with me?  Meme only has two seats....

We're off to see the WIZARD!

And Molly choose this DRESS...

We are off to see The Wizard Of Oz~
We will share a review once we get home!

Mems Get away~

I traveled by car...
I didn't have to go far~

I found these two
Cayden and Mya!
 This boy loves his little sister!

We played some games..
 Did some dress up~
 Rode our bikes~

 Even went for a nature walk!  Cayden was proud of his pumpkins and showed me all around his yard~

 Bath time was fun too!  Mya loves to brush her  "new" hairs!

 So cute together!

I got to babysit while Momma (or as Mya calls her, NANNA) worked!  Here's Mya calling Momma..

I am sure that made Bridget's day at work!

I love spending time with this little family!

  Bridget and her little boy have the same glow in their eyes~ 
Thanks for having me!  Miss you already... See you soon!

Aren't we all blessed?
 Let's spread the word about EB

It is so easy to help!  This is EB Awareness month and I want to share with all my friends an easy way to help find a cure!  Please visit Courtney's blog and learn about Tripp and his wonderful family~  I found this blog when Tripp was about 11 months old and I find myself going back to "check on and offer support" every time Tripps mommy posts something!

I will tell you that after you see her videos of her precious only son, Tripp, you will want to help too!  Tripp's blog will tell you all you need to know about EB and tell you how you can donate $10 to EB research~
God Bless Tripp!
God Bless Courtney!

Gems on parade...

Mya Bryn is getting so big!  Just look at the pictures Bridget just sent me!
 Her hair is really coming in now!

 And just look at her new teeth!!  Her eye teeth have come in before her front teeth!  I just want to eat her up!!

Cayden is as sweet as ever...  I miss this guy!

Halloween is looking like this at their house!  Boo!

I have shared Molly and her violin, now here is Sarah and her piano!

Molly and I go to the theater on October 30th so we will have the BIG REVEAL about her dress on that day!   She is going to look adorable!

Molly's BIG Choice!

Molly Carolyn is quite excited to be going to Playhouse Square Theater with Meme to see The Wizard Of Oz!  This will be Molly's first time going to the theater!  We thought it was time to bring her into the tradition of me taking a gem to the show!  Molly and I had some shopping to do!  I had my iphone with me for some pictures!   We went to Dillards and selected some beautiful dresses to try on...
 Molly went from rack to rack, saying "This one, and this one, Oh and this one for sure Mem!"

We found the dressing room and began to try them one...  Oh my... eww la la!

This little pink number was a little "stiff" but oh so lovely!

Blue~  so Belle of the Ball!

Oh my goodness... pretty sparkles in this one!

"Hey, Meme, it comes with its own little sweater!"
Molly tried on 8 dresses in all.  We narrowed it down to 5.

Can you guess which one she choose?  

  Molly wanted them all.  She was sad when I laughed and 
said, "Oh no, we only can buy one."
Oh me, Oh my... how could she possible choose just one?
