Happy Halloween

Halloween greetings from our butterfly catcher and his very own monarch butterfly.

I'd like to tell you Charlie was just getting into character, but no, he runs around swinging things at his sister's head all the time. He got a net and she got sparkles and a fluffy dress. Everyone wins.

Major thanks, as always, to my mom for cranking out killer costumes in no time. We are spoiled.

Who needs concrete lions when you have a Lab?

Sunday, October 6, 2013


After closing on July 26 and making enough "updates" that would rival a full-blown renovation, tonight will mark our very first evening sleeping here. Everyone. In their own beds. (Well, the couch for Buddy because he won't set foot on the second floor, but that is neither here nor there.)

There's so much to share, there are so many people to thank and there are so very many things that make me beyond happy. But for now, I'll just say we are all so very excited to be in our house together. There may be concrete lions guarding our steps (they're going, Chip), the trees and bushes may be ready to eat our house, and the basement may look like a bomb went off, but gosh darn it, we're in the house. And it's great.
