Yes, yes, I'm still playing catch up on my blog. I'd like to get back to doing short non-picture posts about all of the cute things my kids say and do. But the constraints of life leave me doing photo bomb posts for the near future.
We had a crazy fall, mostly because we bought a fixer-upper in January 2011 and it was finally ready to move into in October. Much of our happenings were put on hold during the renovation and move, but here are a few snippets of that chaotic time.
Pumpkins were carved. Mason jars were painted.
For C's birthday we went to the Monticello Railway Museum and rode the Ghost Train.
M was terrified of the train ride.
We moved into the new house on October 29th, just in time to celebrate Halloween in our new neighborhood. M was a princess-witch. C was a cowboy-monster.
The cowboy-monster story originates just after Halloween 2010. I purchased a few costumes on clearance after the holiday, to use for 2011. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to me, C had already decided he wanted to be a monster for Halloween. I had purchased a cowboy costume. Hence the cowboy-monster! I added some white face paint to make him pale, and some red hair spray - done!
