The after

Christmas trees and 19 month olds don’t mix.  Note the bottom half.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s that time of year again.  I refrained from putting up the tree until yesterday.  It was so hard not to put it up on November 1st (yes I am one of those nuts).  This year I used only plastic ornaments, and I am sure glad that I did.  The kids are already going to town throwing around the “balls”.  Here it is in all it glory; day time and night time.


Having fun

It was nice out today, so the kiddos were able to play in the backyard.  They loved the leaves!


Most of the time…

Halloween 2012

by noelle on November 1, 2012

I wasn’t sure how the kiddos would reacte to Halloween this year.  We bought a lifesize, talking butler for the porch, and it scared the shit out of them.  I mean, to the point where we had to hide it in the garage, and everytime we went into the mud room, they would get scared just knowing it was in the garage.  I made the mistake of telling them it was a Halloween decoration, so everytime we mentioned Halloween, they would shake their head, say “no!” and look toward the garage. I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to take them trick or treating because they would be too scared.  Also, Sandy had sent some nasty, cold, rainy weather our way, so we didn’t know if it would be possible anyway.

They absolutely loved trick or treating.  It was cold, and drizzling a little bit, but we venture out anyway.  And they loved it.  Everytime we would walk away from someones house, they would ask “More?”  It was sooo cute, and so much fun.
