Oh, this thing called blogging has certainly taken a backseat now that Little Man is around! It is amazing how time just goes by and another day passes with no update to the blog. So, here is what has been happening around here over the last few weeks!
**We had to put our sweet furbaby Sadie Jane down a few weeks ago. She was getting old (almost 13!) and her hips, eyesight, hearing etc were just going. It was terrible and heartwrenching, but we know it was best for her. We were able to bury her at my parents' farm with her brother Willy and my parents' dogs Zeke and Zeus.
At the end of the October, we celebrated MJ's birthday by going away for the weekend and attending a Murd.er Mys.tery at The Hi.ghlands I.nn. All I have to say is it was SO MUCH FUN!!!! 25ish les.bians all dressed up and playing the parts in our Rob.in Ho.od based Mur.der My.stery. We will definitely go back again as they do it every year! Here we are as Clor.inda, Quee.n of the Shepher.desses and Ro.bin Ho.od.
Mr. Man thoroughly enjoyed his first birthday and he recevied many cars, trucks, tractors and other wheelie things. Needless to say, he is in his glory! Give that kid something with wheels and he can't contain his excitement!
He especially enjoyed the cards that people gave to him. We still have many of them as he enjoys "reading" them over and over again. A few have been torn into pieces, but he gravitates toward them!
Drew made his first art project this week. Our amazing babysitter made these with the kids. He oooohhhed and ahhhhed when he showed it to us. Needless to say, we were two proud Moms and it is hanging on our fridge!
It has been busy but wonderful. We are so looking forward to entering the holiday season again this year. Last year was wonderful finally celebrating as a little family but we were still in that newborn haze. This year we get to take everything in through our son's eyes and I am sure it will not dissapoint.
