Visit with Santa

Lsat night we took the kids to see Santa. We like to go right before Thanksgiving to avoid the Christmas rush. Patrick was pacing back and forth waiting for Daddy to get home so we could go. He was so excited to tell Santa that he wanted presents. We got to the mall...not one person on line for Santa....patrick gets about 3 feet from Santa and stopped. He wanted no part of sitting on his lap, but was happy to talk to him from a distance. Allyson was a trooper and got him to sit on her lap next to Santa instead.
'Tis the season!

Allyson's Confirmation

Wednesday was Allyson's Confirmation. Although the ceremony was a little long, it was really nice. The Bishop was really funny (just told too many stories) and the all the kids looked great.
She did a great job and should be proud of herself. We are! All 14 of us had a great dinner afterwards and the night ended around 8:30. Not bad at all.
Pop Pop insisted that Patrick wear a matching outfit so they would be twins. So below is a pic of the two George's, our family shot at Church, and Ally with Kathy (her Godmother and Sponsor)

Congrats to Ally!

Congratulations to Allyson who made the JV basketball team! This is the first time she's ever had to try out for a team and we are so proud of her. She worked hard during the 2-day tryouts. So now the season begins....

Happy Halloween!

Well we had a very fun Halloween this year. Bittany was able to sleep over so she could be Ally's Trick or Treating partner. We decided to include her in the theme and made her a spider web. Patrick did a great job saying "Trick or Treat" and "thank you;" although he did ask for more candy at the first house. So the woman just kept filling up his bag. We hit a few houses before it started raining, so Pat stayed home with me an Ron took the girls for more.
Being a Saturday i thought we'd have a ton of kids, but there really weren't many. (which isn't good bc I bought enough candy for an army)
Here are some pics of our evening...
