Nightmare on Arch St.

They say that Halloween is the time for scariness and I've already gotten a taste of October fright. This weekend we stayed fifteen minutes from Hell (in Ann Arbor). I must have been at the zoo early Saturday afternoon because I was getting passed from Lions to varmints back to Lions and even to a Wildcat every now and then. I got drowsy and fell into a deep sleep soon after the PSU-Michigan game began.

In my dreams, Aunt Beef dressed me up like one of those varmints, and she called it a Wolverine. When I woke up, I realized that my nightmare had become a reality. My mom said I looked cute (she was lying, I could tell), and my dad was trying to convince Ann and Libby that wolverines were extinct. I don't know whether he's right or not, but I found out as the afternoon went on that wolverines don't like to play in the rain (way to go, Lions!).

Grandpa G and Aunt Beef weren't very happy after the game. My mom and dad were glowing, though, and they kept making fun of a wolverine that had migrated north from West Virginia.

I did find one good thing about Ann Arbor...they have a swimming pool! So I was able to play with Mommy and Daddy, Grandpa and Grandma, Aunt Kim and Uncle Eric, and Brooke and Grant (although Mommy was very bad and did not take any pics with the Gma's and Gpa's, and the Petro Family) But here are just a few with Mommy and Daddy.

This Weekend...

Hey Brielle!
Brielle: What?!

Guess where we're going this weekend?!

Brielle: Where?
Ann Arbor!

Brielle: Oh...that's my least favorite city in Michigan.

We're going to watch Penn State beat U of M!

Brielle: Wake me when the game's over because its going to be a blow out!

Fall and Pumpkins

We love the fall out here in Pennsylvania...for Chad mainly because of Penn State football...but the mountains are so beautiful with the changing colors.

Blah, Blah...okay enough of the boring scenery stuff...

In addition... its pumpkin time! So we headed out to Heinish Farm to get some! Brielle appeared very interested in her family photo with her very first pumpkins.

She appeared more interested when she got to pick her very own!

And whats a blog entry without a few other token pics of Brielle! (These are obviously to satisfy the grandparents!)

Toys & Winter Coats...

We went to an Altoona soccer game the other night not fully realizing how cold and windy it was going to be and being the smart parents that we are, simply dressed Brielle in a sweatshirt, so we had to do a little improvising to keep her warm...Dad's body heat, body hair and fleece coat.

Brielle has all the toys you could mention and what does she like to play with the most? Yep, the Ritz Toasted Chips bag...go figure. We're working our way up to the cardboard boxes.

Quick Update...

Can you tell what we started last week? guessed it...rice cereal! After a little confusion at first, Brielle loves it!

Otherwise not a whole lot going on, so we'll just add a few more pics
Brielle spent one entire evening playing with Moms foot and the coupons ads...she really knows how to get straight to Moms heart!
Yep, another laundry pic...what can we say we love the way she folds our shirts!
