Ok so obviously I am the worst blogger ever. I apologize. I am always thinking oh I can’t blog because I need pictures and they are on my iPhone not my computer and I never have my cord with me. So now I will start this post and it may take me a few days to actually publish it. So since I last blogged a lot has happened in the world and in our life. First thing was Halloween. We got some awesome wigs and handed out candy to the children of the neighborhood. We had fun dressing up but next year we might need a costume party to go to so we can truly show off our amazing costumes.
Right before Halloween, Sandy hit. We were very fortunate to say that the worst thing we had to deal with was a leaky front door. We did not lose power or have any damage so we were very fortunate!
The weekend after Halloween we had a nice weekend. We got shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and bought all kinds of fun goodies from the dollar store to send to the kids who are helped by this wonderful organization. We did this when I was a child and I always loved it so Tyler and I decided to do it this year. If you have never heard of them then check out their website! It is a great thing to do around the holidays for kids who won’t get a Christmas like we are used to having.
That Saturday evening we had a retirement home night at the Twaddells. We had delicious bbq, played cards and enjoyed visiting with family. This past weekend we did a lot of Christmas shopping! We are trying to get done with our shopping before the madness that is December. Something about that month is just always incredibly busy and I don’t have to tell you how crazy the stores get. So if we aren’t done then the rest of our shopping will most likely be done online.
Next week we head to Ohio to spend Thanksgiving with my family! I am so excited to get to see them and spend a few days at home eating my moms cooking!
