3 Plus 1 makes 4

Unfortunatly, Jeff & I are computer-less for a few days, unless we use a computer either at work or a library.

The good news is that we're expecting!
Noah will become a big brother this July - we're all very excited. What a blessing it is to know that we'll be having another little one join our home this summer.

More to follow once our computer is back from the repair shop.

New wheels

Noah's new favorite toy...


Noah's glasses arrived in the mail today. Jeff & I have been amazed at how well he's been doing at keeping them on!
We're so proud of him! Here's Noah blowing kisses at the camera...

Cast of Characters

Jeff & I hosted a Costume Party this past Saturday, November 3rd. Here's Jeff, as Ozzy... Me, as the Blond Little Red Riding Hood...
Noah, the Pumpkin.
My brother, AJ, the Mexican Wrestler...
AJ's wife, Sherry, as the beautiful gyspy.
My cousin, Eli, the cowboy.
My cousin, Jesse, as a tree monster.
And my cousin Laura, as Judy Jetson.
I know, I know...we are all way too cool.


Noah was very intrigued by Jesse's costume!
My cousin, Laura, always brings new & exciting games... here, she reveals the game to Sherry...
The boys...
Noah, saying "Howdy!"
what a pair...
"Hmm, where's her dog Astro?"
Eli told me that I'm more like "Little Red Riding Hood going to a Rave."

The gang

Our favorite pumpkin

And he was off to the neighbor's house to get some candy!


Starving to carve our pumpkins...

Almost there...
Carefully lighting them...There we go.
And of course, I think Jeff wins "most creative" again this year.

To the date...

5 years ago, this very night - I was on my first date with Jeff (or "Mr. Joslyn" as I so properly referred to him).
We had picked out pumpkins & had some hot chocolate at the Texas Hot.
We're carving pumpkins tonight, as per our tradition.
I'm still happy...
I'm one lucky, and very blessed lady.

This teddy has become Noah's playmate. I find it adorable when Noah drags poor teddy around, lays him down, puts a blanket on his head and says, "night night." Teddy has no complaints.

Color burst

With red being my favorite color, I ran out into my parent's yard to capture the beauty in this tree...

I love fall

Too bad my camera doesn't capture the scent as well...


The mum that I bought last year grew back and is even more beautiful than last year...


On our front porch, to have their insides scooped out; then shine a lil' light.

15 months

I'm late at posting these, but on the 10th, Noah turned 15months. 15 months...and so many faces.

Hogback Mountain, VT.

If I could, I'd be here right now - with the leaves in their splendor!
