Halloween Already

Ok so I am a little obsessed about being a mom for the 1st time. I have already bought Georgie's Halloween costume. I swear if Christmas dresses were out right now she would have one of them too. I wasn't sure what to dress her as this year but in keeping with tradition of buying her Halloween costume at Gymboree last year I decided to buy her one from there this year too. Here are a couple of photos of her new costume and a photo from last years costume too. I guess I have a thing for cute bugs......

Beach Day

DAY 4- We tried to get a tan that day but it was close to impossible since it started to sprinkle on us. The weather didn't really give us the ideal beach experience but the kids didn't seem to mind one bit. Georgie had fun rolling around in the sand and I do mean rolling. She was covered in head to toe sand when we left but had a blast doing it.

Swimming and Boating

DAY 3- we spent some time site seeing in Huntington Harbor with Skip, Joan, Vanessa, Annette, Gage, Rome and Grandma Dee Dee on the boat. It was such a beautiful day and we also got to swim for the 1st time in a pool at their house too. Georgie had so much fun!!!

Disneyland with Gage & Rome

DAY 2- hanging with Vanessa, Annette, Gage and Rome at Disneyland. We had a long fun filled day at good old Disneyland. We spent a few hours watching Billy and the Hillbillies show then went on Pirates and Toy Story ride over at California Adventures and even stayed late to watch Fantasmic and the firework show. Georgia stayed awake until the very last sparkle in the sky was over and then fell fast asleep just seconds afterwords. Thanks Vanessa for doing Disneyland back to back with us your a trooper :-)

Fun with the tiwns

We had a very eventful couple of weeks with the twins Gage and Rome. While Bob and Jill and Cole were off on a cruise in Europe Vanessa and Annette were the good Samaritans who took care of the twins. Here is a few snap shots of the activities we did with them during the past couple of weeks. By the way Gage and Rome are Georgie's favorite form of entertainment these days.
DAY 1 (The San Diego Zoo) Animals, animals and more animals (oh I mean kids!!!! Same things Right :-)

Ok Everyone, it has been quite some time since I have blogged about what has been happening with the Crazy Cortese Family. I have decided to start from scratch with a new blogging site so that I could have a bit more freedom with my design and postings so I chose Blogger to make it all happen. I will be updating everyone with some pictures and more recent events of whats been going on with us. Hope you all enjoy.......

Alex's Bridal Shower

What a fun night this has been. I just got home from my cousin Alex's bridal shower party. Like most things Alex does this was absolutely an "A" class event. It was so much fun not attending the usual day time wedding shower that I am all so familiar with. (not that I don't enjoy a day time shower, after all mine was and I loved it :))
I of course was part of the planning of this exciting event and was so excited to do this for her. I just love her so much and couldn't wait to be apart of the special group of ladies who were throwing this shower in honor of her. Thanks to her Auntie Ann for hosting it at her beautiful new home on the peninsula it made for a stunning location for an evening to remember. I can't wait to see what her wedding is going to be like. Congrats to you Alex. Thank you for a night to remember.
