Fall So Far

Hello All!  I thought I'd pop by and say hi and share what D family has been up to lately.  Just to forwarn you, this will be a lengthy post with lots of pictures!

To be honest this fall has had some good times and some not so good times.  But I absolutely LOVE this time of year so even the bad things that have popped up lately haven't ruined it :)

Since I want to end on a positive note, I will start with some of the things that have been not pleasant lately.  Nothing catastrophic but just unpleasant.  Since I last posted, poor Noah has had 2 ear infections :(.  Poor guy.  I'm just praying that he doesn't continue getting them because I don't want the tubes to have to be put in his ears.  He seemed to get better and then just last week he had 3 diapers with blood in them.  Definitely FREAKED this mama out!  Luckily he was tested for the C Diff bacteria from being on antibiotics and it came back negative.  He hasn't had one since, so we're thinking it was a stomach thing or a little tear that's all better.  But he did get a cold or bug around then that's slowly going away.  Poor guy.  I'm hoping he gets better and stays healthy for a long while after this.

Just the other day I went to the store and went to use my debit card and it wouldn't go through and the cashier said I'm suppose to call the bank.  Confused, I called my hubby to see if he knew what was going on because I know we had money in there.  He checked our account online and someone had wiped our account clean :(.  Yikes!  I called the bank and canceled my debit card and since the deductions are pending, there's nothing the bank can do at this point.  So I'm playing the watching and waiting game to see if they post.  If they do, then I need to go to the bank and file an investigative form and from what I was told, " We'll see if we can get your money back.".  Not something I want to hear around the holidays.  We'll see if we can get it back?  No I better be getting my money back!  I'm just praying that the pends just disappear and our money is safely back into our account.

Now for the good news for D Family.

My sis came up to visit the middle of October with her family.  I was so excited because instead of just her and my neice Caitlynn, it was the entire family including my brother in law, youngest neice Camrynn, and nephew Gary.  We had such a good time.  Noah became attached to me and clung to me for the first day they were here, but shortly after, he was all over the place and playing with his cousins and reading books with his aunt Becki and Uncle Gary! :)  We even had an early turkey dinner since we can't spend Thanksgiving together.

We took a trip to Mount Washington since my brother in law hadn't been there yet.

Noah and Aunt Becki!

Little Cami!  I just love this little peanut!

She loved rubbing uncle Andy's buzzed head lol

Cousin Kisses!

Noah has slowly progressed to standing on his own and cruising at full speed while holding onto someone or something.  It's just a matter of time until he is walking/running.  Pretty much he's just being chicken right now...just like his daddy was at his age :)

And for the sake of Halloween here's a picture that cracks me up.  Not exactly Halloween themed, but somewhat spooky and it made me chuckle.

D Family also had a great Halloween.  While we took our little boy trick or treating, Andy's sisters who decided they were too old to go out anymore, stayed at our house to pass out candy.  I don't have a picture of it, but I put up some spookie decorations in our mudroom for the trick or treaters to walk through.

And here's our little dragon!

His cousin was a little monkey.  Noah would not loosen his grip on the glow stick we gave him.

D Family before going trick or treating!

We had good weather but it was still chilly so we didn't stay out too long. Noah just cruised along in his little car.

Andy and I didn't dress up on Halloween, but we did go to the Halloween party at the Spalding Inn where Jason and Grant from Ghost Hunters were.  For some reason I don't have the pictures uploaded on here yet so I will have to show you what we were later.  The party was a blast and it was so nice to get out and spend some good time together while nana and papa watched our little boy.

So that's about it so far!  I hope you all have a great rest of fall and a great Thanksgiving.  Eat lots of food and spend lots of good quality time with those you love! :)
