Our new Pappas Baby

We are proud to announce the arrival of our new "baby" Cody Duncan Pappas. Cody is a Cavalier/Bichon mix (cavachon) and he is 9 weeks old. He is busy training us to be his masters and we are quickly finding out how much work a new puppy can be. As you can see from his pics he is a cutie pie and is melting our hearts, even in this frigid weather!

Eleni's Engagement

See this precious little flower girl?  
This photo was taken just a couple days after Eleni turned two years old.  
She doesn't look too sure about this whole wedding thing.  
Indeed, she barely made it down the aisle.

See this picture of Eleni, now a beautiful woman?  
She's going to be the bride now.

She looks much happier about the prospect of her own wedding.
Doubt she'll have any trouble getting down the aisle this time.

Congratulations Eleni and Seth! 
We are so happy for you!

Poor Baby Eleni.
We're so glad that experience didn't traumatize you!

West Coast Halloween

We were rained out this year, but still had a wonderful Halloween.

We carved pumpkins, and Lexi gave her usual reaction - YUCK!

The end results were quite enjoyable.

The the kids got ready for Halloween. Cleopatra and Belle were ready to hit the town (With their little angel)!

We have too much candy left over since it started to pour, but we still enjoyed the day.
