My first babysitting gig...

Well, maybe it's a few years away but a girl can practice on a day off with Dad and Ben, right?

Harvest and Halloween 2011

I love my little brother, but ever since he arrived, we just don't have much time to keep up our cyber-appearances! Guess that is what happens when you're too busy livin' it up. Since we have a 90-minute delay tomorrow due to the snow (in October!!!), my mom had a few minutes to post some of our expeditions in preparation for Halloween. First things first: we had to find some pumpkins for our "drive-in" movie night.

 Found one!
 And a little baby one.
 No trip to the farm is complete without apple cider donuts.
 Before the movie night, I finally got to break the pinata I got for my birthday (in June).
 (We had so much fun at movie night, our friend, Katharina Davis, was in charge of taking pictures (you can find them on Facebook). 
The weekend before Halloween, we went to the Irish Club with Jillian and Lillian for a Harvest Festival!

Tomorrow is finally the big day, and I can't wait to wear my real costume. Ben already ruined the surprise on his blog, but if you check back here in a bit, I'll have pictures from trick-or-treating tomorrow!

Where did you have breakfast this morning???

This morning I got up at 5.15.
I told Daddy that I wanted to have a rainbow bagel with cream cheese.
But I didn't want to eat in the car, please.
Not in a tree, not in a house and not with a mouse.

I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do like rainbow bagels, Sam-I-Am.
I eat them when I paddle, paddle real far.Paddle real far like we are paddling to a star.
Paddling to the picnic not in a boat, not in a car,
and not in moat.
I paddle out into the Sound.
To have a picnic and get bounced around.

A picnic on a board? What do you say?
A picnic with daddy out in a bay.
Out near the lighthouse, out near the fishes and birds.
We watch out for water monsters who act just absurd.

I eat my whole bagel, and a great orange juice box.
I float past the lighthouse and way past the docks.

I took a few pictures, one of the light... ...and one of the water monster that caused quite a fright!!

I had quite an adventure, as you see.
Out on the ocean, out on my sea!!!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Since Ben has come home, it's been nothing but fun around our house! I'm not sure if everyone gets to have as much fun when they get a new brother or sister, but I sure hope so. Ben's very first outing was to the Jennings Beach Carnival, where we ran into some of our friends and got to ride some super fun rides.
 Then, my Auntie Susu came to visit on Easter weekend. We had a lot of fun coloring Easter eggs...
 ...and getting our nails done at Cleopatra Nails and Spa.
I even got an Easter bunny painted on my thumbs.
On Easter morning, I searched for and found my Easter basket, which was really a gardening planter full of candy, stickers, and gardening tools so that I can help my Dad in our garden!
 There was even a funny surprise in my planter...but baby Benjamins don't get planted in gardens!
 The following weekend, Mimi and Poppi came to visit for a couple of days. The weather is getting so nice that we were able to sit outside and make s'mores on the outdoor fire pit.
 Yum, yum!
Even though baby Ben hasn't been able to really enjoy all of the fun things I have been doing, I always make sure he knows I love him. He comes with us just about everywhere, and that's the way I like it.

Let me tell you a thing or two about babies...

Now that I'm a big sister, I know a lot about babies!

Baby Benjamin, Come Home Already!

My baby brother surprised me last weekend by coming out early! It's a good thing I helped get his room ready for him, since we weren't expecting him for at least another month.
I was a little surprised when Mimi brought me to the hospital to see Mommy and Ben, but there was no Ben!
No matter...I was just excited to see Mommy again. They explained that Ben had to stay in a special nursery in the hospital until he got a little bit bigger and stronger. So, I sent my lovey to the hospital to keep him company.
I think my lovey did a good job making Ben comfortable, because my mom and dad showed me a picture of him a couple of days later, and he didn't have all those tubes coming out of his nose anymore! I hope I get to meet him soon. He sure would look good in some of my princess dresses!
