The alligator

Today I had Bug and the boy I babysit and brought them up to the hospital to visit my dad. He's up on the 4th floor and the boys were so excited when we got to his room they kept talking about an alligator. This happens sometimes where they'll both start talking about something random and usually by looking around the room I can figure out what brought it up. Well, no dice on that, I was stumped as to why both boys were excitedly talking about an alligator. I was stumped until we left and I went to push the button on the elevator...
Love these boys

Everything's better when you hug it out

My boy is such a love. He loves hugging and kissing. We went to visit my mom and dad today and there were a bunch of Bug's cousins staying there because of hurricane Sandy. I just love this picture of Bug hugging his cousin. I pray he keeps this sweet tender heart of his. I'm so thankful to be able to see the world through his eyes if only just briefly.

Halloween 2012

So this past week New Jersey (and pretty much the whole East Coast) got hit by Hurricane Sandy.  Here at Chez Dirkey we got rain but didn't even lose power, less than 30 miles from here though is a different story.  This week was a nightmare for so many, my family members included.  My sister lives on one of those islands that you're seeing in the news, her house flooded, her mother in law lost everything.  Just Crazy.

We figured a little levity was needed, what better way to bring a smile than to dress a toddler up as a farmer, tractor included.
Praying for brighter days ahead for all affected by Sandy.
