Rugby is officially a one-year-old Pirate :-)

Definitely a little late as Rug's birthday was on 10/19 but with Sandy, planning a wedding and everything in-between, things have been somewhat chaotic!

Rugby had an amazing birthday which consisted of balloons, presents (he thought the toy was the paper wrapping) and ice cream! He was so adorable chasing the balloons around our apartment:


Halloween was a different story as we live in NYC and are part of a small percentage that never lost power to the storm. My heart goes out to the thousands of people that have been affected. Mike and I have been working from home all week and have friends staying with us because they have no idea as to when they will get power back :-( At least Rugs has a playmate, Jagger, who belongs to our friends!

To cheer ourselves up and our friends, we couldn't resist dressing up Rugs... so here you go! Happy belated Halloween!
