Happy Halloween - Weekend Recap
It was a rather strange weekend. Forget what I said on Friday about welcoming Winter with open arms. I mean, I meant it, but I wasn't suggesting it should arrive the very next day! We were in Connecticut, which got a foot of snow! I've never seen anything like it. There were so many fallen trees and power lines, and tons of roads were blocked. My mother-in-law lost power, as did thousands of others. Crazy. You could hear the trees crashing down all over the place. On Saturday night, we left our boys with Grandma and Aunt Amber, reading to the boys by candlelight.
Kevin and I attended a Halloween Ball, which was a lot of fun. I was pleased with how my costume turned out. The makeup was messier than I would've liked, but that's because we had already lost power, and I was trying to do it with a flashlight and the last bit of daylight! I still think it came out alright. I even won best female costume!
Sunday consisted of breakfast at my sister-in-law's house, since they were lucky enough to still have power. Then we headed home. We didn't get nearly as much snow here, and we thankfully did not lose power, but there was enough snow on the ground for the first sledding session of the weekend. My boys were excited.
Hot chocolate and sledding on the last weekend of October. But that's okay. Hot chocolate and sledding are good. Now if we can quickly shake the colds we are all coming down with.
Tonight will consist of trick-or-treating with Batman and Superman. Sweet. Happy Halloween!
