sad news

i took our cat, charlotte-kiki, to the vet on monday thinking she must have a case of the worms with all the puking she was doing.  instead, they found a large mass by her stomach and a smaller one by her intestine; she has leukemia and will have to be put down soon.  she's been a fun little kitty.  she was exactly what i had wanted when i told mike what kind of cat we should get: small, gray, and a girl.  she even has green eyes just like my first cat, binky.  we've had her for 5 1/2 years.  my heart is sad.

vintage clothing

caitlin opened up her own vintage clothing store in byron. she has lots and lots of super cute things...clothes, hats, name it, it's there. and she sells antiques there too. it's the cutest little shop; so if you're in the wny area, go there promptly. (it's right in the heart of byron - by the 4 way stop that 262 and 237 intersect at, big orange doors is her shop).

yea, i was the first purchasing customer!  every time i go there i end up buying something (luckily everything there is a steal of deal...seriously.  so go there!)

home again

this past weekend, lyndsay and andy came back home for a visit (they live in PA now...lyndsay is an RD at Geneva College). we had lots & lots of fun and lots & lots of laughs; it was so good to see my little seesta again...i miss her very, very much.

we celebrated andy's birthday with some red velvet cupcakes

we went for a horse & buggy ride in alexander

note how both boys are clutching the rails...too cute

my little farmer

my bestest friends (we missed mar this past weekend, at least she made it home for the photo op & some red velvet cupcakes)

aunt jan also hosted her annual fall party or "hempelfest" this past weekend.  (we eat german's not my fav as far as bannister-party cuisine goes, but the company can't be beat!).

the new babies ('cept for little ryan is missing)

finally got to meet tate andrew hempel....too cute!

grampa stuie has the magic touch

every year, we take a walk down to the pond...beautiful colors
 ahh...fall.  love it.

on the walk back the moon peeked at us

since i posted a picture of tate, thought i should share an interesting tid-bit about our family:
within the last three years, roy & doris bannister have had nine great-grandbabies born into their clan (they have more than 9 in case you are wondering)...of these nine, only one is a girl.  one girl, eight boys.  crazy.  as jen said, "amelia is going to be thrown into the pond a lot" (if you did not understand that last statement you have probably never been to a nesbitt family reunion)

fall into vermont

mike & i had an amazing trip to vermont.  we went up to northern vermont (without the babies) to enjoy the foliage and go moose spotting.  they had great, great colors and we did see moose.  it was freezing though....into the 30's at night; and we were in a heat-free cabin!  camping (or cabining) in the fall is the best because there are so few people.  we went with a cabin this year because the original forecast for the weekend was supposed to be rain & more rain, but it ended up being a rain-free weekend.  i was glad to have the cabin though; (it was very rustic...beds only) it was nice to have some extra space (to stand up in) and not to have to worry about set up & take down.  i love getting to spend alone time with my favoritest person ever.

vermont foliage

this was a sign in rutland, vermont & i thought it was super cute
(and again, so mad that i didn't take pictures of it at night, looked so much better lit up....i had this same problem on the canoe trip)
