Well they've done it again folks. I walked into a store and saw some of the pieces from Mini Rodini's  new collection and just about wet my pants. Why oh why am I not a millionaire? Want want want want!

Visit with Santa

This was our 5th visit to Santa and Ronan was pretty excited to see the big guy in person.  He asked me several times if this was "the real Santa." And let me tell you Ronan...he is...for SURE...the real Santa.

Pumpkin patch

 We picked up Ronan early from school today and took a visit to the pumpkin patch. It was very, very muddy...which in my opinion is kinda a plus. It's fun to wear rain boots and stomp puddles and get dirty. And boy did we....Ronan kept saying "Look at all the mud on my boots! Whoa!"  Ronan had a hard time deciding which pumpkin to take home since there were so many cute "baby ones." It was a lot of fun watching him run around and check everything out. I think he was most impressed with the rotten pumpkins that he found, which he would stand over, scrunch his face, and then proclaim... "TOTALLY GROADY TO THE MAX!" Love this kid.
