Random, Random and More Random

Found these little nuggets when I was cleaning out the videos/pictures on my phone. Some of them are only a few seconds long but they still made me smile...

Madelyn executing some killer dance moves while Patrick introduces me to his assistant.

Tossing water balloons at the beach house. (It's really too bad Patrick never gets excited about anything. Especially bird nests).

Zumba with Aunt Mollie at the beach house.

Mo trying to herd Toby, Carson and Madelyn as they sing Ring Around The Rosie.

Carson, Patch, and Madelyn dancing in church at St. Ann's Life Teen 20th reunion.

And finally, a little Call Me Maybe to end this random post. We were at a surprise party and everyone else was inside the clubhouse waiting on the birthday boy to arrive so the kids got the dance floor to themselves for awhile.

Meeting Moira

Sweet Moira Elizabeth was born midmorning on September 13th. We were lucky enough to spend two weekends in a row with the Garity family and their precious new baby girl. The first weekend we visited Asheville and the next weekend the whole family met at the cabin in Blue Ridge for some apple picking and fall fun. 


Creighton has stepped into his role as a big brother with ease.
Patrick and Madelyn were in awe when they saw baby Moira. They went on and on about how tiny and cute she is, wanting to touch her hands and feet. Madelyn, especially, can't seem to get enough of her. When she held Moira for the first time she looked up at me and asked. "She's my baby sister?" (wishful thinking)

Patrick's first impression, "You have a ball head, baby Moira."
Madelyn literally could not stop kissing Moira over and over again.
Patch, Maddy and Creighton had a blast playing together, as usual. Have I mentioned how lucky we are to have family close by? And to have the cousins so close in age? Very lucky and extremely blessed indeed.
The "big" kids. And one very ugly, yet very loved opossum.

Congratulations Tim, Mandie and Creighton! Moira is an angel. Toby and I are so very honored to be chosen as godparents. We look forward to spoiling her in the future.
