November 15th, 2007 Halloween Night

Daddy took me trick or treating for Halloween. I also had a parade at school. I was super excited to dress up as a bunny. Then I drove home and my friend Kate came over and daddy and Mr. Clint and Kate and I went trick or treating. It was fun. We went almost all the way up to the park and back.

October 30th, 2007 Steelin’ Your Heart

I’m a big Steelers Fan, apparently. Today’s flashback photo is me in a basket of laundry. I guess that must be the way Mommy used to wash me. I’m glad I get to take a bath now.

October 29th, 2007 Halloween Party 2007

We had our Halloween party this year. I was a bunny. I got to draw on our patio door with markers, and eat tons of crackers. Halfway through the party I slimed the camera with my bunny goo. You can see it in the last two pictures. Hee, hee.

Today’s flashback picture is me in my Halloween costume last year.

October 22nd, 2007 Toilet Cleaner

Welcome Back. This is the final week of the POTD and we will start with some wonderful pictures of me “earning my keep” by cleaning up around the house. Last year’s picture shows me as a little baby looking surprised.

October 15th, 2007 And I’m Back

Mary sitting on the carpet looking up at the camera. Hey guys. Sorry I have taken some time off, but I have been visiting family at my Aunt Corinne’s wedding and playing with my Nana and Papa over the last month and I have been terribly busy.


A closeup of Mary in her bathing suit.We are wrapping up the year of the POTD’s. We started this around the beginning of November last year and October 31st seems like a fitting time to end this excitement. I will keep posting pictures but since I am not changing as much I will shoot for around one to two posts a week instead of one picture every workday. With this less grueling schedule of posting you should start to see some more videos instead as well.


Mary at 5 months old.
To end this escapade I will be posting larger groups of photos with a picture of me from a year ago in a, sort of, grand finale. Today’s post is of older pictures of me at school from late August along with a picture of me from late August last year. Boy I have changed. I couldn’t even walk then.

I liked to play with the balls and look at the other baby in the mirror. She follows me everywhere.
