Mom (Nana), Gram (GG Nana), Lilija and I (and baby JJ Jr.) went to Maplewood Mall while the boys were hunting. They have a HUGE two tier carousel in the center of the mall. Mom took Lilija on it before we left. (I could barely watch. I get incredibly motion sick on rides that go in circles. Put me on a ride where I free-fall 350 feet and I'm good to go but a silly little circle ride will do me in!) Mom said that the entire time she was either saying "wee!" or "horsey...neigh!!" That was until she had to get off the ride and then Lilija must have thought the world was going to end right there because she had a major meltdown right in the middle of the mall. Oh to be a one and a half year old!

Trick or Treat!

Carl did a great job of getting Lilija all set for Halloween. I was in North Carolina (pout) so I didn't have a say in the outfit or get to see her dressed up. (I did however get a package of pictures sent to my hotel room so I could see her before the 31st. Way to go Babe!) Carl even taught her how to say, "Trick or treat!" (She was a candy corn...no pink or ruffles this year!)

Trip to Colorado - Dinner at the Molins

Acko Tommy and Nancy Nan have an incredible house in Fort Collins. They've lived there for many years and in the last couple of years Nancy got the remodel of her dreams. She does interior design and can work magic with just about anything! The results of their remodel should be showcased in Better Homes and Garden. Seriously!

Trip to Colorado - Rocky Mt. National Park

The following day Andy, Trish, Carl, Lilija and I drove up into the Mountains. It was CHILLY!! (duh - I know...we were headed into the mountains but still!)

Trip to Colorado - The Wedding Part 1

Kent and Meghan's wedding was held at a ranch in the Rocky Mountains. It was BEAUTIFUL!! Lilija wouldn't sit still for Mama and Daddy but she sat like a little angel for her Bapa!
