Happy Holidays everyone!!

I tried but I guarantee I forgot some people when sending out Christmas cards this year. Sorry! Here is the scanned version of our card. All 3 dressed up for Auntie's wedding in October.
Our family photo was taken on the cruise. Evan and Nora have goofy "cheese" faces but all in all a decent family photo so we bought one. We so rarely have all of us in one shot as Im usually the one behind the camera.

Carnival Dream

Last week we got to sail on Carnival's newest ship, the Dream. We had a group of 15, 9 adults, 6 kids. We had an amazing time. In Cozumel we went to Paradise Beach where they had huge inflatable slides and such in the water. Isla Roatan, Honduras was very pretty. We took a private tour and saw much of the island. We stopped to hold and feed monkeys and birds. The kids then LOVED the glass bottom boat tour. Many different kinds of corals and fish. They even got to see sea turtles and scuba divers. In Belize it started out windy and the kids got some play time in at Bannister Island before the rains came. Jim and I went snorkeling and even in the pouring rain it was awesome. So much so close. Very very cool. Lastly in Costa Maya we went and viewed some Mayan ruins.
Now its back to the cold reality and rushing to get ready for the holidays. Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy Halloween!

Ry was a ninja. Evan was Jango Fett from Star Wars. Nora was Belle and Dumbo. The gym had a party on Friday and the princess gown was not warm enough for night time trick or treating here in Wisconsin. So Dumbo was free and warm.
Ry likes seeing the kids dressed up but would still rather hand out the candy than eat it. Evan tried his hardest to keep up with the big kids. Nora LOVED trick or treating this year. Kept saying "more candy" and sounded so cute with her trick or treat and "dank you".
