i may never leave my bed again.

I got my new bedspread!!! whoooo hooo! took me forever to pick out a pattern, then of course they were always backordered/discontinued...oh the drama..but after months of waiting it arrived yesterday afternoon! Yes, it's heavy and wonderful for cold winter nights...which makes perfect sense why we have this weird week of hot weather (oh new england weather..damn you!!!) but ooooh it's so lovely to look at!

I'm a New England girl...I like the traditional colonial style :)

Dang, I didn't just clear out a huge area today next to the chicken coop.....shoot I didn't just go with the beloved to buy a big shed...half of which is meant for something small and cute to live in....UGH I did not just pick out the name Saffron....blah I did not just tell the male children who are leaping around with joy....what is my problem??? SERIOUSLY SOMEBODY SMACK ME!but did you see their precious little faces???

Oh My Gooshnibs!!!

There is a reason why I love the knitting community so much, they are crazy fun! my swap partner from Ravelry's Dishcloth Swap went a little nutty this month...Lovely lovely Sue from Washington sent me a big old envelope full of goodies and why do you ask??? IT'S MY BIRTHDAY NEXT WEEK!!! oh I was spoiled for sure, a gorgeous brightly colored happy dishcloth, a most adorable knitted batty to decorate with and my favorite bit...the emergency mustache costume!!! I can't stop freaking my older kids out with it! it's awesome! Nice to know someone else out there has the same strange sense of humor as me....well that could be a little scarey at the same time.. Now pardon me while I drop off the teenage diva at dance while in cognito....much to her horror....mwwwwwwhahahahahahahaha!

I'm on a PB cup overload...intervention may be required

I need help...I admit it.Why oh Why is Halloween candy so darn delicious??
And Why oh Why does it go straight to my backside??
I need help, I am weak.
if somebody could please just remove it from my house I'd be very grateful indeed.
thanks :)

Boo!!! did i scare you?

We took a road trip to Salem, Massachusetts for some haunted history! Spooky, creepy and downright scarey stuff! Oh and I managed to find a Pirate Musuem which was very very cool! Yar!!!
Brendan and Cody and thier "ghoul friends" ha ha ha! oh oh I'm too funny (not)

This is EXACTLY where a bunch of teenagers belong! I bribed them with Ben & Jerry's ice cream to get this picture just to let you all know.

My favorite part was checking out the old burial was really cool.

5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate, the first one says "oh my it's getting late!"

It's October! Time for cooler weather and decorating for Halloween!! This weekend the kids and I went out to get our pumpkins (over 100 lbs worth of pumpkins to be exact) whoo hoo! had some stew going in the slow cooker, talked about wondered where she would find the time to create such costumes and then attempted to take a good xmas card picture...and they insisted on including the chickies. Now that was an experience I'm not rushing to re-create any time soon! ha ha ha!
