Hurricanes, Birthdays and Halloween

Warning: Long and picture heavy post ahead!

What a crazy couple of days it has been! I hope you're all safe and dry and made it through Sandy in one piece!  We have been without power for two days and aren't looking at getting it back for another five days or so.  We had some damage to our house, but nothing not too easily fixed (I hope.)  We finally threw in the towel after the fireplace ceased to warm the house and our faucets stopped giving us water and headed to my parents' house in Pennsylvania.  Now the kiddos get to experience Halloween and we have tv and internet back in our live - you never know how much you miss them until they are gone!  Being so close to NYC (less than 15 miles) made this experience even more crazy, especially seeing the city shut down.  We are still wondering the status/fate of my family's house at the shore in NJ.  All in all, we can count our blessings and be thankful we are all okay.  This is definitely one for the books and an experience that will not be forgotten.  

This is how we have spent the last couple of days:  making the most out of our gas stove (stove top pop corn!) and spending some quality time with our wine collection (I use the term collection VERY loosely here.)

Anyways.... so today is Halloween.  Always a good excuse for a costume flashback of my little lady!

Halloween also happens to be Josh's birthday (poor guy.)  Last year it got snowed out and this year hurricaned out.  He can't catch a break.  But he is the best dad and our kiddos love him and spending Halloween with him.  Cue photo dump.

Awwww.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. What cute flashbacks! Sorry to hear about your power--that's the worst! But so nice that you're close to your parents!

    P.S. I have two fabulous giveaways going on, both ending at midnight! If you have a chance, you should stop by and check them out!
