Right now, I am...
:: marveling that a whole year has gone by since my sweet little Grandbaby, Olivia was born.
|Dad + Shan = Shananigans!|
:: tired from a wild party-filled weekend. It was great fun to celebrate My Father-in-love's 70th birthday, Olivia's birthday, and Halloween. I'm glad that we will celebrate my sister Meghan's birthday after her trip, so we can savor it.
:: laughing at our ridiculous costumes that we cavorted around the neighborhood in!
|Mother Gothel from Tangled, Chewlivia and Nate, the Got Milk? cowboy|
|My Mom is the one good witch|
|Super relaxed Ninja|
:: overwhelmed by the amount of food that was prepared and consumed over the past few days.
:: pleasantly surprised that we had a million kids trick-or-treat at our house this year. It had been dwindling down to nothing over the years and we almost ran out of our candy (more than 8 bags?????)
:: wondering how fast Thanksgiving will get here!?
:: grateful for visits from my Mom and Bret. It is so nice to spend time with them and their visits are treasured and appreciated.
|Bret and Dad having a special moment|
|My Mom and Jamie, looking gorgeous!|
:: hearing super mario music stuck in my head.
:: going to try to stick to my tried and true way of eating after a lot of over-indulgence.
:: planning to seriously finish knitting the socks I started in April. Seriously.
:: digging my worms. I am in love with my slimy vermicomposting babies.
:: knitting myself a bandana cowl as soon as I finish those damn socks!
|maybe something like this????|
:: listening to kiddos snoring after an exciting day.
:: saying "good job!" to my Mom-in-love for putting together the birthday that my f-i-l wanted to have. Not easy to prepare for such an event, but it was a great day!
:: inspired to continue my yogurt making after my first successful half gallon. all for the price of the milk. Sweet.
:: happy birthday Olivia and Megs! Two of the best gals in the world sharing one Halloweenie birthday!
:: delighted by the depth of my Husband's love, patience and generosity.
|Here he demonstrates his love of my homemade trifecta: cheatballs, sauce and bun.|
:: waiting to hear all the details of my Sister's trip to visit my brother, Ian.
:: being thankful for a chance to hang out for a little while with my uber-talented Sister-in-love Wendy and some very special cousins (one which is a canine) and a tres magnifique Aunt.
|Check out that cake!|
:: wishing my Mom could stay longer! But, alas, snow is coming, so I know she won't stay! Damn beach bums!
