Well.  Paul and I have been having serious issues with the Internet...as you can see through lack of posts.  Not to mention we are getting ready to have paul's family (5 people), my sister (flyin' in from good ol' California), my mom and her bf, and of course paul and me (plus 2 kittcats) in for the holidays. It will be a full house.  I have been cooking and cleaning like a mad woman to prepare for this and, fear not! I will post pictures of all that goes down on this Thanksgiving afterwards.  My sister and sister-in-law are going to be staying for black friday where we will surely take on erie with a vengeance.  I will be getting a laptop for myself :) and gifts for the family.  

I hope you all have a great and thankful thanksgiving :D

Last night we went to an art exhibition put on by our school in downtown Erie. To start the night we went out with Paul's coworker and his girlfriend to Oscars Pub for some tasty dinner. I got a turkey reuben with homemade chips and Paul got the, much talked about, fish sandwich. It was really yummy! Then we headed off to 'Chimera' at the Erie Art Museum Annex. Swanky times. We noshed on some tuscan themed snacks, checked out the art and watched a couple bands perform. We headed out around 10:45...and on the way out of Erie we had the car in front of us T-bone another car. That was a little freaky- I hope everyone made it out ok... So that was our night. It was fun- Oh and Paul got to see the tickets he designed in action! And his t-shirts too! He got one for free :) they went over really well!!

Saying bye-bye to Leeloo before we went out.

New shoes... snow

Well I bought some new shoes. And I like 'em. So I will show you some pictures :)

Now for the more serious task at hand. The snow. I don't like it and I'm not ready for it. But it comes anyways.

Oh and here is the infamous picture of Shotzye falling off the chair since she was moving so strange with her costume on.

Tonight Paul and I are going to go to the Chimera Soiree at the art museum- Paul designed the shirts that are for sale there- and the tickets to get in too! So Ill post some pics of tonight later.

Happy Hallos-ween!

For Halloween this year, Paul and I stayed in and watched movies. Spooky movies too- 28 Weeks Later and Disturbia. They were really good actually!! And the whole time we ate candies and dressed up the kitty's. enjoy the pics!

I made samoas since no girl scouts came to sell them, and I really wanted some...



Shotzye asked if she could be a bee so we had to search high and low to find her this little outfit!

She liked it........

Leeloo was an elephant. A blue one.

She is imitating an elephant here.

She wanted some of our cotton candy!!
