I must have taken twenty photos of them, and this one is probably the very best.
Our three kids:
That's Lily on the left, Nicky with the cheezy smile, and Gabi looking coy on the right. It's mighty hard to get a photo where they're all smiling!
Anyway, just a quick update for you. It was a three day weekend for us because of homecoming. Our town shuts down when the Gators have homecoming weekend. Nicky had a sore throat Thursday morning, and by that night I had one too, but I'd promised to take him to the parade Friday. So even though we were both feeling a bit under the weather we went.
This was Nicky's first parade, and I think he enjoyed it. We'd planned to catch the bus, but we missed it twice! That'll have to wait for another weekend. So I drove to campus, and we parked and walked. It was a good 15 minute walk, and then I stood from about 11:30 till 2pm. It was a LONG parade. Another 15 minute walk back to the car and we were both about to drop. By the time we got home we were done. We both had fevers, and were exhausted.
The rest of the weekend has been pretty uncomfortable. Nicky seems to have endless energy, but even so he's a little under the weather. He's bounced back much better than me though. I'm just hoping I don't share it with Tom and the girls. Tom being sick will be hard on us all, and no one wants a sick baby! That just breaks your heart.
So we're doing a lot of hand washing around here. Oh, and we have a new acquisition! My mom bought us a dishwasher! That should help keep the germs from spreading also. Thanks Mom!
Speaking of Moms, that reminds me, the kids are all set for their Halloween costumes. Nana bought Nicky his Bumblebee costume, and the girls are going as fairies with two cute dresses they already have, and some fancy wings Nana found for them. They'll be adorable! Now we just have to figure out what we're doing for Halloween. We've done Boo at the Zoo for three of the last four years. I don't know if I have it in me to do again. We'll have to see.
One more for ya:
Oh, and maybe just one movie: This is Lily talking. I swear she says "hi."
