In case you haven't heard, there's a hurricane coming :P Unfortunately, being in Central New Jersey,we're in line to receive the brunt of the storm, most likely this afternoon. We're not TOO concerned right now - we're not in a flood zone, there are no trees on our property, etc but still, we don't really know what to expect. Other than the fact that we're going to be stuck in the house for a few days! We attempted to go to a birthday party last night for my friend Daria's children, but the party was 90 minutes from us and NJ had already started closing roads so we weren't able to make the drive. (But a HUGE thank you to Daria, who so kindly requested that instead of gifts for her children party guests make donations to Love, Annaleigh. How sweet is that?!?!) So instead, we stayed home and carved our pumpkin.The kids really enjoyed the whole process, especially Lily, who was very interested in the whole thing. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with our finished product! Now, what else can we do to amuse two three-year-olds indoors for the next two days?

I love when holidays roll around! There's always so many great things to see and do! We've been taking advantage of the Halloween season as best we can around here. I found some cute projects on Pinterest that I couldn't resist. Charlie and Lily got the biggest kick (pun intended, lol) out of making their footprints into ghosts, and they did a fantastic job with the candy corn counting - I didn't even need to explain it to them!

On Tuesday, Charlie and Lily went on their first ever school field trip to the apple orchard. Charlie was beyond excited to get to ride on a school bus. He'd have been happy skipping the orchard and just riding the bus around the parking lot all day.

In other news, the kids are doing well in preschool (they have their first field trip tomorrow to the apple orchard!) and Joe is starting grad school classes this week - so we've been busy! But when we're home, Lily's favorite activity is anything art related. She loves to color, play with Play-Doh and paint. Last week I pulled out the easel and let them go to town.
