Nicky Turns Two!

Speaking of Nicky’s Birthday, the lil guy turned TWO on June 29th! He had another backyard party with the Backyardigans! He is doing GREAT! I can’t get him to shut up! He is just like his dad!


Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Boxing Day (You know who you are Claire) ๐Ÿ˜‰ and Happy New Year to all my friends and family! We love you all and thanks for a GREAT YEAR! Looking foward to a even better 2007! LOVE ROB, JOS and NICKY!

Andrew At the Bat

Nicky, Jos and I went to the ballpark to check out my nephews baseball skills! He is pretty awesome and we got to see TWO games because he got called up to the next level for a fill in player! Great Job Andrew!

Farewell Bucky

Bucky is a near and dear to me treasure as I grew up. He is a wooden statute from Dartmouth College, where my uncle had attended and was a gift to my grandmother and father. When I would go visit my grandmother as a kid, I would always be drawn to him. Lets face it, in your grandmothers house as a kid, there wasn’t much to play with. My grandmother had passed away some time ago and I had held on to Bucky for a long time.

After we moved we have been cleaning up and consolidating everything in the house. By sheer coincidence, my uncle was coming to town and was attending his Dartmouth 50th year reunion! So I figured it was time for him to go back home and to be loved by many! Good Luck Buck, you will be missed!

Dartmouth College
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dartmouth College is a private academic institution in Hanover, New Hampshire, in the United States. It is a member of the Ivy League and is one of the nine colonial colleges founded before the American Revolution. Founded in 1769 by Eleazar Wheelock, with funds partially raised by the efforts of a Native American preacher named Samson Occom, it is the ninth-oldest college in the United States and the seventh-wealthiest in terms of funds per-student. In addition to its liberal arts undergraduate program, Dartmouth has medical, engineering, and business schools, as well as 18 graduate programs in the arts and sciences; hence it would tend to be called a university in standard American usage. For the sake of tradition- in part stemming from the legacy of the landmark Dartmouth College Case – and in order to emphasize the central importance it gives to undergraduate education, however, it refers to itself as a college. With a total enrollment of 5,700, Dartmouth is the smallest school in the Ivy League. It is incorporated as Trustees of Dartmouth College.

Mets Home Opener 2006

I am happy to report, the tradition continues!!! Jos Nicholas and I headed out to Shea Stadium with Frank and the girls for the Mets 2006 Home Opener! I believe this is the 4th or 5th year in a row that we have attended this grand event! Some years we hit it good where it is nice and Fresh Toasted outside, but no such luck this year! Nicky braved a lil chill, but he was a trooper and was really a good boy and enjoyed his very FIRST Mets game! The Mets WON 3-2 in a great game again the Nationals! GO METS!


Nickel Nicky was Pooh for his very first Halloween, his first BIG holiday! He had a jam packed weekend, attending his cousin’s 1st Birthday / Halloween party and trick or treating with his other cousins back in NJ ๐Ÿ™‚ All in all Nicky loved the holiday and is looking foward to next year’s big adventure ๐Ÿ˜‰
