The New Mr. and Mrs.

2013 is off to the best start ever!  My sister got hitched earlier this month at my parents’ home upstate.  It was a cozy and festive affair and I couldn’t be happier for the newlyweds.  It’s going to be a busy year for our family.  My brother’s 1st of 2 weddings is coming up in a few short weeks.  So fun!

Auntie Medina

During our week-long stay with my parents in NY, Riz snapped some very sweet shots of Zeemu and Auntie Medina together.  The kiddos really enjoyed their time with their youngest Auntie.  She’s still a kid herself (oh, to be 17) which of course makes her extra-fun, full of energy and full of sillies.

And just for a chuckle, one of Chunker caught raiding the pantry.

Labor Day Weekend

Riz and I took the kiddos and my littlest sis to my parents’ house in Horseheads, NY for the long weekend.  My sister spent the previous week with us in CT and although she’ll never admit it, I’m pretty sure she was dying to get back home to our parents. Truly, I cannot blame her.  It’s bad enough getting through the days with your own little rascals but when those monsters belong to someone else?  Bleh! Torture.  She was such a trooper though and her nephews adore their Auntie Dina.  Thanks for all your help, little one and happy birthday (she’s 17 today)!
