Happy Halloween!

Riley's school had fall fun day today so she got to wear her costume! It's hard to be very photogenic at 6:45 in the morning, but she was still pretty darn cute.

Addy wanted to wear something either orange or black and all she could come up with was this Christmas dress... (excuse the flash on the beads of her dress!)

At least her hair bow had candy corns in it. :)

peaceful bliss

Riley was sound asleep when I went to get her ready for school this morning. I hate waking her up - she is so peaceful when she's sleeping! Her breathing is regular and everything seems perfectly "normal".

school picture time

Riley's school picture turned out so good! I had to laugh though because they were obviously holding her right arm back to keep it out of her face. But I just love the big smile on her face! Her pictures at school don't normally turn out so well so I had ordered the smallest package of pictures and now I wish I ordered more!

October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month

In our family we are all very aware of what Rett Syndrome is.

Please take a minute to visit Riley's web page at Girl Power 2 Cure

We believe a cure to this devastating disease is within our reach but it cannot happen without much research and for that we need YOUR help! Please consider making a donation on behalf of Riley - just visit her webpage at Girl Power 2 Cure and click Donate. All donations are tax-deductible and go directly to Rett Syndrome research - it can't get any better than that!

We would also love for people to sponsor a drug - to find out more just go to

Thank you all for your support on this!
Mitch and Erin

busy busy

Things have been crazy busy here this week so not much time for blogging. I will catch up soon but for now just wanted to post some pictures of Riley having the BEST time at dinner the other night. Dinner time is not usually her best time of day - just worn out from the day I guess. But the other night I let her nap first and then we ate later and she was in such a good mood, I loved it!
As usual I took a million pictures and can never decide which ones to post and which ones to leave out so here's a bunch. :)
