i have thinking about this post all day, all month...for quite a while.
it seemed difficult to just up and start again. i used to post all the time and then got behind and got behind and got behind again. i didn't know what to do or where to pick up...
where had i left off again??? ;)
so, i decided, this is supposed to be FUN!! this is supposed to be a creative outlet for myself and for sharing with others for FUN!! so, off i go, i thought...fearlessly into the blog abyss...
and then...all technological hell broke loose! i couldn't log in, i didn't even recognize the site i was logging into, and i wasn't even trying with the right email!!! ugh! but, here i am. and i didn't even throw my laptop at the wall!!! :)
so, for the sake of some FUN, we'll back up about 2 months. red sox opening day with alanna, my 30th birthday rainbow, and another april game with my sisters...
karen, one of my best friends, got married in gloucester. i was one of her bridesmaids. it was a beautiful wedding. just perfect. and she was the most beautiful bride...
so much fun!!
well, to prove i'm back on the blogger bandwagon,
i'll post again tomorrow after dayton's preschool graduation. :)
But, my goal is to get caught up before Christmas.
With everything else there is to do it will be a feat...
but, alas, all we can do is try. :)
Trick or Treat day started out well, Livi and I made "Spider Bites."
HaHa my little play on brownie bites (patting myself on the back) ;)
dun dun dunnn
a blizzard hit!
Does this look like October to you??
Kenny out there braving the cold cleaning both our cars off
while I take pictures cozy and warm. (Thanks, K!!) <3
This was a common scene...trees hanging upside down from power wires...
This led to power outages for most of the state.
Kenny and I were without power for a week.
Luckily, we were able to stay with my parents because they have a fireplace, and we had no heat at all...and after a few days of the Caron Family Robinson (without the cool treehouse) we were able to stay with his parents since their power was back on days sooner.
It was actually really fun to be "forced" into some quality family time. :)
Sooooo.....anyhoo. Halloween night, all together at Mom and Dad's
we improvised!! :)
Well, most of us. Dayton brought his Batman costume. :)
Livi, however, utilized Mom's costume box. :)
Beth as "Dora." ;)
Mum clowning around... :)
Beth and me as the "Pirates who Don't do Anything"
It was a trying time but we were so grateful for both our families.
This is my in-laws yard, that is always brilliantly cared for...
there is certainly a lot of cleaning up to do.
Tornado, Hurricane, October Blizzard...
It's got Massachusetts saying,
"Hey, Mothah Natchuh, whud we evah do to you?!?"
Here's a couple October images before we make our way to a busy and fun November...
