So Much Going On

We survived the Sandy without a loss of power. Mama kept rubbing her magic emergency lantern every time the power dimmed and the lights came back on. We are praying for all those who are still without power and recovering from all the damage.

Bailey came up with a new idea for trick or treat. He got a head pat for every treat given out. Katy came closer to the door and was spying at the trick or treaters from a cave she created. She might not have wanted to get close, but our girl is getting braver and refused to miss out on the action.

Katy has also discovered the joy of leaves. Last year Katy was terrified of the sound made as people and dogs pushed through piles of leaves left on the streets. This year as we've been walking more frequently, she has become very curious about the smells and the texture of the leaf piles.

What really drew us out was the card swap. It has been a tough summer and fall for Mama and she hasn't been doing much blogging. She preposted a bunch of stuff for her education blog last winter that has continued, but everything else has been dragging. However, she has been scanning blog postings and when she realized she almost missed the sign up for the Christmas cards she not only signed us up, but she wanted to let people know we were still out here.

  5. Woohoo! We are so glad you are gonna be in the card swap - it is a ton of fun. Hope you have a great weekend.

  6. So glad to hear that all of you are safe and sound!

  7. we have missed you and are so happy to see you!
    That is wonderful to hear the progress that Katy is making!
    Also so happy that you are all safe, you need to share that magic lamp with some of the others!

  8. Glad to hear Katy is getting better with the sound of leaves. We were thinking of the Christmas Card exchange -- butt we don't have much money right now for stamps because we took down a number of trees at our house. We don't feel right about emailing cards. We hope to participate in the card exchange next year. We will make Mommy buy stamps as soon as she is finished paying off for those trees and we will save it for next year!

  9. You have been missed! So thankful you survived Sandy. Sorry to hear mumma hasn't been doing well since summer. A blog never expires and friends will always be here for you when you guys can return.
