My Brothers' Birthdays

My three brother's all have birthdays within about a 2 week period.. so.. we've always celebrated them at the same time. John and I had them over for dinner and cake/ice cream. Then, we played a long night of nertz (I LOVE that game). Anyway, I have great brothers.. and even though I'm the oldest, they've always looked out for me. Happy birthday, guys!

Solo Maine Trip

                                                                      Mike's Pastries! Yum!

                                                                         Nana and I
                                 I put on some wool socks- don't worry, I didn't wear those to church.

I went to Maine just for fun, while I was off track from work. John didn't have enough vacation days, so I flew solo this time. It was nice to just relax and hang out with family and friends. My mom and I went to Boston for a day... and went to quincy market, ate seafood, Italian pastries, and visited my friend, Rachel. In Maine, I just visited family and hung out. It was nice and relaxing. The bottom pic is some dear in our backyard... I know it's hard to see them.. but it's still cool!

Pumpkin Carving

We carved pumpkins TWICE this year.. with two different friends. It was fun.. besides, can you ever do "too much" pumpkin carving?? I carved an owl and John carved a ghost. I especially like Marcus pretending to be the headless horseman.... and Jaelan's puking pumpkin. These were some of the best pumpkins I've seen! This is about all we did for Halloween, because I was out of town over Halloween weekend.

Anniversary Getaway

For our 2 year anniversary, John took my to Homestead for a night. It was so beautiful up there and peaceful. There was also tons of snow! And even though it was just for one night, it was so nice to just getaway and have a fun little mini-trip together.
