Not-So-Happy Halloween…

Halloween has definitely played a trick on us this year! Since we had a huge snowstorm two days ago, and there are a lot of trees and power lines down, our town has postponed Halloween trick-or-treating until Friday Sad smile We’ve been talking about this FOREVER, and now we have to wait FIVE more days! What a bummer… We still wanted to get dressed up in our costumes though and pretend! Ben is the cutest little dinosaur these princesses have ever seen!

Winter in October

We couldn’t believe it, but we are having a BLIZZARD in OCTOBER! We’ve gotten over 6 inches of very heavy snow already, and it’s still coming down! Even though we just went pumpkin picking last weekend in our sweaters, and all the leaves haven’t fallen off the trees yet, mommy dug out our snow boots, we ran to Target to buy new boots, and we were off running in the snow! We made snow angels, ate snow flakes, and built the most AWESOME snowman with daddy! Welcome winter!

“Just Baby” turns 3!

I announced to my family this morning that it was “Just Baby’s” 3rd birthday today! (I have no idea when her ACTUAL birthday is, but today seemed like a pretty good day, so I went with that…) I wanted to make a cake and have a party for her, but since mommy didn’t have the right stuff to bake one, we decided to take her out to Friendly’s to celebrate instead. I think we made her day VERY special Smile

Fall fun in Long Island

This weekend we went to Long Island to spend the day picking pumpkins & carving them with Nannie, Grandpa, Uncle Kevin & Aunt Bridget. We went back to the same farm we do each year and had so much fun! We played on the playground, fed the animals, rode the ponies, went on a hayride, and picked our carving pumpkins! It was a busy day, but we had a blast!

Picking pumpkins was so much fun… but mostly because we got to pull a wagon out in the field! Abby could pull quite a load!

When we got back to Nannie & Grandpa’s house, Abby helped scoop out all the pumpkin seeds (Emily thought is was too yucky), and the grown-ups carved us some pretty cool pumpkins!

In the end, they turned out great! Aunt Bridget & Uncle Kevin carved “Mike Wazowski” from “Monsters Inc”, Mommy carved Emily a special “Relli” pumpkin, and Daddy made Abby a cool “Boo” pumpkin from “Monsters Inc” too!
