The new bad guy in Batman...

We talk about A LOT of different things at our house, and our kids can recognize lots of famous people from Dustin Pedroia and Josh Beckett to Ben Stiller to President Bush. And they have really interesting thoughts about people. Like the day Avery asked me if the reason I liked Barack Obama was because "his family was exactly like ours". Interesting observation.

Anyway, the other day, Dan was riding in the car with the kids and he told them that he had heard that they were going to make another Batman movie with the Joker in it-he said "Guess who they might get to play the bad guy?" Without missing a beat, Avery said "Is it John McCain?" Dan almost drove off the road he was laughing so hard.

Out of the mouths of babes...

I am attempting to raise $1000

for the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that is held by the American Cancer Society. Most of you know that I usually participate in the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk, but this year I was unable to, so I have joined a team of walkers from my company and I have set my personal goal at $1000. Can you help me? I am walking October 5th. Thanks. XOXO

So I tried to take them to work with me on Friday...

It didn't really go so well. The best thing about the attempt was this picture. I work on the 15th floor.

First day of school pictures

Ave has started first grade and Jack is in his final year of preschool. Not exactly sure where the time has gone.

This post is a little late

But we were having some technical difficulties...like this underlining...can you see it? Anyway, last week when we were on vacation, Avery, Jack and I went to the Forest Park Zoo and we were lucky enough to witness the sighting of 2 mortal enemies actually sitting next to each other and getting along. I got a picture. Thought I would share it with you.
