Indian Summer

What a weekend. The weather was perfect for mid November in New England. So what do you do when its mid 60's on a Sunday. You hike.


Shaney was happy in the carrier for a little while.




But that didnt last long. Once he saw how much fun O was having he wanted out.



So I set him free.



He was so happy to be free as soon as I set him down he layed on the ground and cuddled with the leaves.


Owen tried to show him the ropes.



Hi my name is Shane and I am so cute I will melt your heart.





I don't know why we don't go more often. It was so nice to be outside, getting fresh air. An added bonus, my boys burned energy and were wiped when we got home. Not tired enough to nap though. I think I closed my eyes on the couch when we got home.


Shane and Kennedy are two little peas in a pod. I was cleaning out the toy box in preparation for the holidays and it turned out to be more fun that I thought.




They played in the toy box for at least an hour. They found new toys that were burried on the bottom and played even longer.

They are so funny.


I have a new project from Spring (yes, I am already thinking about spring). I got a beautiful dresser from my neighbor. I am planning on spending a weekend refinishing it. It will be my first re-do and I am a bit nervous. I think it will turn out good with a little help from my multi-talented husband. although he says its all me! We will see. Of course I will post pics when I am done with it.

Where has the time gone? I feel like I have neglected my little blog. What a bad blogger I am.

So much has been going on in our lives. I have hardly had the time to sit down and pour my mind onto a blank page.

Well I turned 30. I had two great parties. One I knew about, the other was a surprise that my wonderful husband put together. They were both alot of fun.


As usual, I was surrounded by just the right people. Brians parents came down and took us out to dinner. That was very nice and it was great to see them.

We had tons of Halloween fun.


Shaney was a monkey.



Owen was a Ninja.


My boys amaze me...they are so special and melt my heart every time I look at them.




Now we prepare for Thanksgiving. I am slowly cleaning every room in my house. Not that it matters because I have little mess makers that walk around behind me just to be sure nothing is really clean. So my house will be as clean as it can get.

Brian will cook a huge feast and we will be surrounded my people we love. I think Thanksgiving is my favorite occasion. Its the least stressful of them all. Christmas is great too but its is pretty chaotic. Birthday parties are great too but they too are chaotic.


Well, it has happened. My boy has grown up right before my eyes.

I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth and Owen came in to go potty. He said, "mom, don't look".

This may be no big deal to most of you but to me it is a very big deal. Those three little words were a little shock to the heart. I smiled and turned around so he knew I wasn't looking. Why is this so significant, because my baby is no longer my baby. He is growing up and I am not sure how I feel about that. Of course I knew this day would come. The day when my baby became a boy who doesn't need me anymore, the day when my baby needs his privacy. I will happily give him any space he needs but with a heavy heart. I look at this two ways. One, he is growing up and we are moving onto a new phase in his life. I look forward to this new part of his life. Two, I need to keep having babies!
