All Aboard! for Matteo's Birthday

Serafina was the first to point out, in a rather disgusted tone, that this was the 5th year in a row of celebrating Matteo's birthday riding trains. Smart cookie, that Matteo!

Our Secret Revealed

We've been keeping a secret.

(From the world-wide-web.)

Don't worry, it's a good secret.  (Are there good secrets?!?)

Some of you have all ready clued into it.

It's awesome news.

And we can share it today!

Them, not it. 

They're two little boys. 

Two sweet sweet little twin boys whom Matt and I started to visit in the NICU 7 months ago.  We fell in love and brought them home.   It's been a long, crazy, exciting, heart wrenching journey up to this point, which we will share with you over the next few months, but today we signed the official adoption papers in front of the judge so we can officially share the boys with you. Finally.

Without further ado, the newest members of the Regusci Clan:

Jonathan and David Regusci
1lb 12oz and 2lbs
12inch long

Halloween in the Village

Halloween is quite the event in the Village of Arroyo Grande. The street is closed off, and hordes of trick-or-treaters descend upon the merchants who are all too willing to deposit some goodies in their bags. We showed up in force. Not just the Compound crew, oh no. Trev and Jen came with their lady bug and lion, and Jeanette and Andy came with the Star Wars family. What a hoot!

AJ on a Roll

He was in a mood to make faces. Unfortunately, we didn't catch the best ones, but still...

Sign Here

Amy Allen from Family Connections Christian Adoptions did the coolest thing. She held a signing ceremony for all the kids in preparation for the imminent event. Very sweet, very moving. Lynn wasn't the only one welling up. The twins were asleep; they'll have to sign at another time. Each certificate was personalized, and spot on; Amy knows them very well.

Last Day at Far Western Tavern in Guad

Rob and I managed to catch lunch at the famous Far Western Tavern on its last day of business in Guadalupe. The amazing part was that we happened to be there, quite coincidentally, for the motorcycle ride through the bar! Here are some other now very historical photos:

Pumpkins Everywhere!

There is nothing like a trip to the Nipomo Pumpkin Patch! This is our third year, and it gets better every year. Believe them when they say it takes a good-sized truck to get some of their bigger pumpkins home.
