More Halloween - Trick or Treat!

I got my first chance to go trick-or-treating Friday night with Mama and Papa and I loved it!!!

I went to visit my neighbors and they gave me candy and change for my Change Bandits Team. I thank them very much :)

After we got back home, I helped Mama and Papa hand out candy and freezie pops to all the kids :)

It was a great Halloween night!

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)

Happy Halloween!

Yep, that's me! I'm Abby Cadabby for Halloween! Papa took me to Mama's work and her Halloween pot-luck party. Little did I know I'd be answering phones and working for Mama, though (hee-hee!)

All that work sure is making me thirsty :)

Aren't I just the cutest thing with wings :)

It's our Ohana! We make a pretty cute family, don't we :)

I'd like to thank everyone at Mama's work for all their donations today to my Change Bandit Team to help the kids at Hasbro Children's Hospital. I really appreciate it :)

If you still want to make an online donation today, you can just click right here and you'll see everything on my Change Bandit Team website.

Happy Halloween!

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)

A few reminders

It's a rainy and chilly Tuesday, so I'm spending the day inside with Papa. It's OK, lots of time to play and beat Papa up! ha ha ha :) And also a chance to give you a few new pictures of Mama and me :)

I wanted to give everyone a few reminders. The end of the week is the end of Change Bandits to help me raise money for the children at Hasbro Children's Hospital.

I give you this first from Mama and Papa:

First off, THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Abbie’s Change Bandit Round-Up to benefit Hasbro Children’s Hospital. To date, we have raised… $95 online and $86.18 in person – equaling a total of $181.18. Yeah!

Hasbro Children’s Hospital is a wonderful resource in our community. We have met many wonderful patients, families, doctors and staff of Hasbro Children’s over the years. And we are calmed to know that if we ever need a hospital for Abbie – we know we have one of the best right here in Rhode Island. So, if you haven’t donated yet to our Change Bandits Round Up – you still have time.

Last call for Change Bandits is Friday. We will turn in all the cash we have rounded up at the Warwick Mall on Saturday. (stop by between 11-2 at center court if you want to visit us. We will all be there around noon – some of us (Laura) a lot longer).

This is our last call to action. Please feel free to make a donation online at or contact us by email and we can stop by in person.

Abbie will also be trick-or-treating on Friday for Change Bandits instead of for candy (at Citadel during lunch and in our neighborhood in the early evening.). We hope that each of you can help. Every little bit adds up to a big finish.

Happy Halloween All – Thanks for your help!

Now, as for the other reminder, it's the last couple of days for the caption contest! We will announce our winner on Friday (Happy Halloween!). Just email Mama and Papa now with your caption to the picture of me below. If you win, you get three new CD's from Usher, Rhianna and Leonna Lewis.

Good luck and keep those donations coming!

Abbie :)

A Fun Fall Day For Abbie.

This is the Change Bandit reminding you I am still collecting change from all my friends and family to help Hasbro Children's Hospital.

Next Saturday and Sunday, Mama and Papa are going to take me to visit who ever requests my visit. Just email them right here to schedule and remember I accept change, cash or checks. :)

Now onto my day. I enjoyed my yogies for my morning snack.

Then I went for a walk with Papa and Mama up and down our street. We saw three Sammy Squirrels, a couple of doggies, and the landscaper next door driving a very cool ride on lawn mower.

Welcome to Phantom Farms in Cumberland - want to help me pick out a pumpkin???

I found my pumpkin - it is small and I can carry it and it has this really cool stem.

Riding the cart while holding on tightly to my pumpkin.

Look I am a sunflower :)

I am Abbie Scare-Crowe... :)

While in the Phantom Farms gift shop we found Miss Jenn's book "The 7th Witch." We already own this book - You should too. Miss Jen will be at the Farms at the end of the month for a book signing and a party called "A Witch's Night Out" - When I get more details I will post them here.

This was a fun day... Now I will sit here and rest till Mama and Papa agree to take me to Friendlys for Cheese! (Mac and Cheese w/a side of corn.)

Hope each of you are having a great fall weekend. Sunday is football, grocery shopping, cooking a turkey, and playing. Oh and maybe carring around my pumpkin some more. :)

Love and Hugs.

Brooklyn's birthday party

Sunday, I got to see everyone for Brooklyn's 4th birthday party! We had lots of fun, as you are about to see!

Papa watched me play baseball with my Red Sox bat.

Then, I played with Cooper. He's a good puppy :)

Off to the house to make some mean grilled cheese!

Cruisin in my car!

There's the birthday girl :)

Back to the car for some more driving.

How cool do I look :)

Time to play bally :)

Blowing bubbles with Mama

Aren't we so cute??????

Hugs and kisses,

Dan Zane's House Party

Saturday, Mama and Papa took me to see a House Party! It was Dan Zane's House Party at PPAC.

We had lots of fun! I got to sing and dance to the songs. Mama and Papa let me run up and down the aisle too while listening to the band play. I even got to see my friend Roxy too!

I didn't make it through the whole concert, but Mama and Papa said I did fabulous by making it for over 45 minutes through :)

For those of you who don't know who Dan Zane is, he is on Playhouse Disney every weekday morning singing his silly songs. This one's my favorite - "Let's Shake."

"All Around the Kitchen"

Sunday, I get to go to a birthday party for Brooklyn. YEAH

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)

Exciting news!

Plenty of exciting news from me on this Monday morning!!!

First things first, I went 4-1 in my picks this weekend. I only lost the Seattle game to the Giants. I even picked Mark JR's team, the Dolphins, to beat the Chargers in an upset special!

Now, for even more exciting news, I'm now drinking my milkies out of my sippie cup! That's right, no more bottles :)

This morning, I asked Papa for a second glass of milk and I drank it all :) Yummy, yummy. Then, Mama made some yummy eggs and toast for breakfast.

It's a great start to my Monday.

OK, off to nappies since Papa and I have a busy day with the satellite guys coming to the house and off to Home Depot for some winterizing purchases.

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)

Please help!

That's right, I'm asking for YOUR help today.

Mama, Papa and I are asking for your help for the children at Hasbro Children's Hospital. It is truly a cause that has been near and dear to our heart.

As you know, each year Mama works very hard every March on the radiothon brought to you by the Hospital and Citadel Broadcasting. This year, to help the cause, there is the first ever "Change Bandits." Hasbro Children's Hospital, in conjuction with 92 PRO-FM, Lite Rock 105 and Hot 106, are asking for you help in collecting your change (or whatever donation you can give) to help raise money for the children and for research.

Here's what you can do. Click right here to be part of my team! Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated.

We thank you ahead of time!

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)
