New Construction Pics

Sorry I haven't posted much this month...

You all know why!

{guys working in the background}
So I'll just do a quick post here with some more pictures. How crazy has it been here? See Son H in his special apple hat?

Yes, I missed his Kindergarten Apple Celebration... Sigh... He doesn't seem too upset about it!

Why I've Been Stressed Lately...

{wide open!}
Nothing like a big hole in your house to make you a bit stressed out!

The windowseat project is marching along...


p.s. So much fun to escape the dust last Tuesday to catch a taping of The Nate Show in NYC! I'll post some pictures, soon...

Best and Brightest For Nate

{which would Mr. Berkus like the best?}
I have tickets to see The Nate Show in New York City soon! I'll be going with good friends S and A and we need to arrive wearing our "best and brightest."
So excited! I've never seen a television show taped before - and I'm sure after this I'll appreciate what goes into these shows a lot more. And I can't WAIT to see Nate Berkus!

What outfit would you pick? Friend S is coming over soon to help me decide...

Picking Pumpkins Way Too Early

 We buy our Christmas tree early and our pumpkins, too. A good chance these will rot out by Halloween, but like the needle-dropping tree, worth it to squeeze in as much fun as possible.

{Evie took the longest to find hers}
 We spend last Sunday visiting my Great-Grandma H. She's ninety-nine and in a nursing home, and the home was close to this pumpkin patch we stopped at on the way home.

When I was a kid Great-Grandma H lived on a lonely road called Laura Lane where few trick-or-treaters ventured and she gave out full size candy bars.

{I told Son H any pumpkin he wanted - as long as he could carry it!}
The full-size-candy-bars-houses were stuff of legend in my childhood neighborhood. But my kids have it better. A house on our block? KING SIZED candy bars! (He's a candy distributer!)

Happy October!
