Monzo's Halloween Party

A few pictures from the Halloween party that we go to every year...I love to see all the kids dressed in their costumes and they always have so much fun dancing & trick~or~treating!

Pajama party

Saturday night both McKendra & Gyllyan spent the night.
Gyllyan kept asking if we were have a pajama party all day & was sooo excited that Kendra was staying over too!
We all had fun and just like a girls sleepover, we were all sleep deprived!
We watched The Hannah Montana movie.....

Put on some new tattoos...

and I taught Kendra how to play Solitare.

Sesame Place

For a week now I have been telling Gyllyan we were going to Sesame this weekend & when we woke up yesterday to rain, I had to take her today, not realizing it would be absolutely crazy crowded! It was bring a friend day, so we brought Tori & Logan with us. We went on 1 ride and waited over an hour to get on it in line, then went to the store to let Gyllyan spend her piggy bank $ that she had been saving up and left!

but really, it was worth the smiles on both of their faces to wait the hour in line....

Bondfires & pumpkins

Beth & McKendra came over tonight so we could make hot dogs & strawberry marshmallows on the fire pit, then we all painted our pumpkins that Gyllyan & I had gotten at the pumpkin patch earlier in the day.

Saturday we went to my cousin's house on the lake. We were all so excited because we don't get to go up there there that often & we spent alot of time there as kids when it was a vacation home.

This is the fish I caught - a large mouth bass but since I don't touch fish, Beth took the hook out for me.

this is the fish Erica caught - she doesn't touch fish either!

the view of the house from the lake I took while Shannon & I were out on the paddle boat

Moving on.....

Well, it's official ~ I am now living with my step-mother! I was all moved out on Monday and have almost all of my "crap" in storage (I can't believe how much "crap" I actually have!) It was tough but thanks to alot of family & friends help, it all got done!
It was very bittersweet leaving my apartment, there were so many memories & happy times in that apartment. I "grew up" in that apartment! 10 years is a very long time!
Good bye my little apartment!

Seaside Heights

My Aunt Terri invited us to go down the shore with her for the week.
We had alot of fun, especially, this kid, spending time at the beach & the boardwalk!

she wanted to play in the sand as soon as we got there, so I let her go on the beach while we were walking the boards the 1st night.

she love, love, loves bumper cars!

as soon as Gyllyan saw the ferris wheel, (when we pulled into Seaside) she could not wait to go on it!

Philadelphia Park

I met Sherri & her kids at the racetrack for a picnic..the kids loved it!
There were lots of tables to sit at, a playground, a bar for the adults & you can bet out there if you want to while watching the races..We all had a really good time!

Gyllyan was so funny, as soon as she heard the horns blow, she would run up to the fence knowing that a race was gonna start.

this Jockey was nice enough to walk the horse over for the kids to see.
