Ok – so as we all know, Halloween is coming up. But – do you know what Alex is going to be?
Take a guess – first one to guess (Christine – sorry – but you can’t guess! – or tell anyone!! – no harassing Christine!!) will win a spooky prize. Every day I will provide a clue until the correct answer is guessed.
Let the guessing begin!
(sorry Pat – you can’t guess either!)
For some halloween fun – here are some links I’ve put put together for our Library’s kids page that you might enjoy.
This past weekend was busy. Didn’t really do anything I had planned to do – but that’s life isn’t it? We are still having problems getting Alex to nap at the sitters so he had wonderfully long naps and sleep-ins to catch up. He is also feeling a lot better (must be all the well wishes you sent!), the cough is still there but it isn’t nearly as bad. Saturday we went and looked at a dream house… 90 year old huge yellow brick renovated home – but it is a “few” dollars over our price limit. I seriously want that house – if only I could win the lottery… That night we had a real feast. Matt’s parents came over and so did my brother for stead, lobster, salad, potatoes… the works. It was fantastic. That was my first real lobster meal – I can’t believe I have waited 3# years to try lobster!

Sunday Matt went hunting and got a deer! Yeah Matt! It is being butchered as we speak into roasts and stewing beef to fill the freezer for the winter. And that afternoon we went to get a pumpkin. Sadly – it didn’t turn out that way. I wanted to go to a pumpkin patch but that didnt’ happen. So instead we went to a farm that sells them – but, call me cheap, but I’m not paying $15 for a pumpkin when you can get them for $2 at the grocery store. So we looked at the pumpkins. We will see what we can do about a pumpkin this coming weekend.
We played in the leaves a bit at Matt’s brothers – we don’t have mature enough trees to get a large pile in our back yard.
