A Happy Birthday, Happy Halloween, & A Very Merry Christmas

We have had a very busy and very fun last little bit. Lola turned the big 2! We celebrated with a big bash and a crazy train ride. Jef with one f and Emily stopped by on their journey to find love. Fiona the warrior from Shrek was here on Halloween, and Christmas is always wonderful! Santa brought Lola a kitchen that was quite a chore to put together. But, he had to go the extra mile since he terrified her on the annual Christmas Eve pageant in Santa Clara. Lots of evidence below.
Oh, and Lo is very into being a cowgirl these days.

feeling a little country this fall.

i've been longing for an east coast fall! it really doesn't get any better. but, we have been having a pretty good time out here and definitely a warmer time! we have been going pretty country and lo loves it!
we went apple picking up zion canyon. it was unbelievably beautiful!
madam also went pepper picking in the backyard.
we will add pumpkin picking at staley farm to the list.
all in all we have been having a pretty good time. i'm still craving those east coast leaves though...

a goodbye to brooklyn!

ouch, my heart hurts to do this post. i miss nyc everyday, but it was time to go. calli is always sending me helpful reminders. she was diligent in documenting the laundromat, subway, and the grocery store. being able to see family & friends daily makes everything worth it. i am longing for a slice of johnny's pizza and a playground surrounded by sky scrappers. there is no place in the world like new york! we did however give our beloved city a proper goodbye. here are the many pictures to prove it.
these two, couldn't have done it with out them! they worked so hard!
we hit up all of our brooklyn favorites. flea markets & lots of good eats.
we drug this little madam around everywhere. i must say city life is pretty hard with a toddler. especially one who dosen't enjoy being in a stroller. and you pretty much resort to anything on the subway to keep the little lady happy....even flower stickers on your cheeks.
movie night at bryant park...magical
a big....
kiss goodbye! we love nyc!
