The Cold is Here

Not a whole lot going on these days. Just busy with Christmas shopping and keeping up with A & E. We are headed to Florida on Tuesday for Thanksgiving. Hoping the weather is warmer there than here.

Addy with her Hippies

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


No, not the long haired kind.

Not the pear shaped kind.

The lip kind, you know Hippy! Ok, so you don't know. That is Adeline's favorite word and item. Hippy is .......................Lip Gloss and Chapstick.

The first words out of her mouth in the morning, the thing that calms her in the middle of a tantrum (sorry bunny, looks like you have some competition), the thing that is all over her face, ottoman, clothes. That Hippy!

Here is a picture of her lounging with one of hippys. Evelyn has been a trooper about sharing them with her. Of course, when Addy gets done with one, they are ready for the garbage.

Halloween 2008

Ok, so I'm slacking a little bit. Time seems to fly and by the time I sit down to blog, my mind is so tired and empty. Addy is much better. I took her off her medicine early due to the side effects. I hope it doesn't come back to bite me but she is getting rechecked next week.

Halloween was great. Evelyn was a cheerleader and Addy a flamingo. She wasn't to fond of the hood so you wouldn't be able to guess that was her costume from the pictures. We met up at 6pm with three of our neighbors and their kids and went around the neighborhood together. This was the first time we hit the whole neighborhood. Both the girls had a great time but Addy seemed more excited about the candy than Evelyn. When we got home, Addy was ready to eat her goodies but Evelyn just wanted hot chocolate and go to bed. It was cold, colder than in the past, but still a far cry to when I was young. I remember bundling up in our snowsuits and then putting our costumes over it. Here are some pictures of Halloween and some of the mountains.
