Soon you will stop checking my blog it has been so long since I have written and my last post was probably a little bit too transparent. Sometimes we all just have to let down our guard and put it out there, life is not always cherries and berries despite the abundance of blessing I have in my life. But all is well here and we are keeping up and never at any point was anyone put out on the curb so moving on…..as for all of the comments, phone calls and texta related to my last post I say, thank you. It feels good to be loved. I am constantly inspired by the things around me, our children, my patients and their spouses, my friends and family. Things have been good and if you can stand going through the 65 or so photos you can see what we have been up to.
We had our annual trip to Dad's pumpkin patch and brought bad a truckload of pumpkins.
Holmberg Orchard. Again, I am still very happy that Syd still enjoys this, I am holding my breath for the day she tells me she doesn't want to go.
Then I did the unexpected, my friend had been trying to talk me into surprising my friend for a going away party and on Wednesday the girls were fighting on the 1st floor and I was on the 2nd floor listening to this and then I clicked "purchase ticket" and flew out on Friday for a last minute impulsive trip.
I was able to make it to a "Going Away" party for this lovely lady.
I was able to see this wonderful family
and also this wonderful family with a few little ones declining to be photographed. (They may be related to Gabby!)
and I shared an ice cream date with these sweet boys.
Spent a little time in Southie and visited my favorite Camper family and a couple little shops down the street from the condo. Oh how our little town has changed. I visited the tenants in the condo and they just welcomed their first baby girl. It was very sweet and made me nostalgic thinking about having Syd in the condo.
Despite having a little stomach bug the entire time I was there I managed to choke down my favorite treat before I left. Oh how I miss Yankee Lobster. Never enough time, especially on a very last minute trip.musical rooms. When your children pack up to move, that is when you realize how much stuff they really have.
Lake Harriet before the weather changed. I realize that next time we hang out on the grass together she will be running. How is our baby growing up so fast.
Halloween time. True to the Sweet B household we carved pumpkins on October 31st. Our pumpkin carving is very "real."
Then we suited up like this! The tin man had just arrived home from work so he still doesn't have his silver face paint on but otherwise I think we did pretty well. In case you are wondering, don't buy your face paint at Goodwill, it is hard to scrub off. (I know what you are thinking, I would never buy face paint at Goodwill.) Judge if you want, you would if you had 4 children and you happen to be going there already and spotted some new packages at the checkout.
This awesome couple also helped us out that day.
Then the other day I dug Sydney's first halloween costume out to see how similar they look in the photos….now I need to find that photo from 2004….
family walk at Lake Harriet while it was still green. So much fun and sadly now everything is white. I haven't brought myself to photograph it yet.
Have a great evening.
