We are in the middle of an October snow storm!! Brock and Ava got dismissed from school at noon today because of the snow. We are suppose to get 8 inches of snow before the storm is over! I took some pictures outside tonight, they aren't so great because it's dark but you can get the idea, it's crazy I can't believe it's snowing in October!! Thankfully, by Halloween it's suppose to be 55 degrees!

The winner of my first ever blog giveaway is.....Catholic Runner! Congrats!! I will mail your Vera Bradley purse and wallet out on Tuesday!! I had so much fun doing this giveaway and I am going to do another one next month for Thanksgiving so stay tuned!!!
After we did a little shopping we went to lunch and Ava made her own pizza!
After lunch we went to see High School Musical 3, doesn't Brock look thrilled?
Saturday was another busy day. Tailgating is not big at all at the College where I work because we don't have a football team. Anyway, my intern this semester, Michaela, wanted to plan a tailgate before our school's biggest soccer game of the year! She did such a great job and everyone had such a great time, we are going to do another one next semester before a Lacrosse game. My camera died (it was awful!!) and I only got one picture. Michaela and her sorority sisters made a whole bunch of cute signs for the tailgate, here is one of the signs they made.
Here's Ava making a pumpkin at the Kidney Walk
My student worker Diana (in the glasses) with her twin sister Christina. Diana and Christina did so much work for the Kidney Walk. Ava loves hanging out with Diana when she comes to my office. Brock with his balloon hat at the Kidney Walk
Brock and Ava with our neighbors at Trick or Treating!
Tonight we met Grandma Jan at Pizza Hut for dinner. We had a great time and ate way to much pizza. Graig comes home on Thursday (Thank goodness!!)

In honor of breast cancer awareness month I am going to giveaway a Vera Bradley Lola bag and zip around wallet in Pinwheel Pink! I bought both of these over the summer and I have never really got around to using them. Both are super cute! Vera Bradley donates 10% of all sales of Pinwheel Pink items to breast cancer research.

Our Christmas Card ( The big space is going to be our family picture and the two smaller spaces will be a picture of Brock and Ava) Sorry this is so small, but you can get the idea.
It was a lot of fun working on these projects! There are so many things that you can do on that website!

Yesterday was Brock's last day of Fall baseball! Thank goodness because it is so cold here! We had to turn on our heater last night! Graig wanted to wait until November 1 but there is no way that we could wait until then, we might get a little snow on Tuesday night!
This weekend we didn't really do much because I have been sick with a nasty cold since Friday and Graig was getting ready for the last two weeks of his fall travel schedule. He won't be home until October 30! Thank goodness when he gets home he won't have to travel again until the spring.
My friend Abby sent me these pictures of Brock from his last game. She takes great pictures. Thanks for the pics Abby!
Running to first base!

Tonight Brock, Ava and I went to Grandma Jan's for dinner! Graig is traveling so he wasn't able to come with us but Brock and Ava had a great time visiting with their Grandma Jan and their Uncles Gary and Garth.
I tried to get a good picture with Graig's family, I feel like we have so many pictures with "my side" of the family because anytime my family gets together we all have our cameras and we take pictures of anything and everything. Garth kept picking and poking Brock whenever I went to take a picture, this happened (no joke) about 5 times. Look how tired my Mother in Law looks...she just wanted to have a nice picture.
Finally, after about 5 times I got a good one!

This weekend was perfect, the weather was almost 70 degrees everyday, which is wonderful for upstate NY in October!
I also made two more picture's for Ava's room. I love, love, love the green one with the bird. I think these will look so cute hanging in her room! Saturday we spent the day at Brock and Ava's soccer games in the morning and Brock's baseball game in the afternoon. In the evening we went to our friends (Jim and Donna's)for dinner. They have kids that are similar in age to Brock and Ava so they all had a good time playing together. We had a great time laughing and talking with them. I wish I brought my camera, they live at the top of a mountain and have the most amazing views at their house!

Graig's younger brother Garth is visiting for two weeks! The kids are so excited to hang out with him because he lives in Colorado and doesn't get to come home very often. He and his wife, Jill, live and work on a ranch! Tonight Garth and my father-in-law Larry came over for dinner, we had spaghetti and garlic bread. While I was cooking dinner the kids and Garth were in the backyard playing baseball. Garth loves playing with Brock and Ava so they had a great time playing together.
Garth, Larry, and Graig
