Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving... I'm celebrating in spirit, in work.

Those are 2Ts, but still a little long in the leg. Well we shopped until we dropped. Maxing out the credit cards and having to buy extra suitcases, but that's what we do right? We were home for Halloween.. which was not as I remembered. There were hardly any kids trick or treating... weird, right? I remember those streets being flooded when I was young. But there was some amount of crazy decorations! Liam was dressed up as a monkey... so freakin' cute! He was fast asleep by the time we got around the 3rd court in my Aunt's development. Here's my sleepy little monkey.
Cherie and John's Wedding
One of the main reasons for going back to the states in the cold chill of autumn was for one of my bestest friends from high school's wedding. The service was lovely... and thankfully the mass wasn't as long as ours only about 40 minutes! Woo-hoo! The bridesmaids wore lovely long 2 piece wine coloured dresses. And Cherie and John both looked lovely. The reception was loads of fun... with friends I hadn't seen in years in attendance. There was some amount of dancing and I fear many embarrassing photos of me jumping around on the dance floor are floating around somewhere. Here are some nice pictures from the day...

The Maritime Aquarium
The day after the wedding Ollie, Liam, Aunt Linda and Mark all piled in the car and headed up the turpike to Connecticut to meet up with some of my university mates. We went to brunch with Rachael, Ian, Amy and her wee baby Mya. Rachael brought some of her albums from college and our European trip... pretty funny stuff! We then went to the aquarium for a bit of kiddy fun... Liam is still a bit young to properly enjoy it, but it was fun and really cute to watch him look at the fish and amphibians.

The trip was great, but it was good to get home. Sorry for the delay in getting these pictures up. I've been swamped. Stay tuned for more pictures of Jack's birthday party, Liam's upcoming birthday party and some random pictures from the past month.
We headed to the church which was just below the hotel which looked out onto the sea. It was a cold day, but the rain stayed off for most of the day. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous chocolate brown dresses and all looked beautiful. Siobhan was so beautiful and simply glowing! If you know Siobhán, you know she is bright and sunny and full of life. This day was no exception, if it is possible she was beyond happy! Here is the blushing bride and her new hubby walking down the isle.
The food was great. The company was even better. I laughed so much that night! All of our friends were there without our babies and enjoying ourselves. It was so much fun!! Here's the happy couple at the top table.
And cutting the cake.
Brilliant time. Congrats to the happiest couple in the world!
