One month later…

As I’ve become noticeably lax in my blogging regularity, I will update you now with some pictures of our busy lives over the past few weeks. Besides, anything I might write down from my pregnant brain at this moment might not make sense anyway! 


Garden Fresh Pumpkins
These are my three beauties – grown in our garden from the seeds of last year’s store-bought pumpkin! 

I let Frank carve the big one (inspired by Jack from “Nightmare Before Christmas”) and I took the easy route by painting the littlest. The middle one is cured and saved for future baking!

Georgie on the Lookout
Georgie waiting patiently for Trick or Treaters… of which we had 2, almost 3. The first little witch went running as soon as she heard Georgie’s excited bark!

Chloe as a witch!
Our 8-month-old niece, Chloe, stopped by to show off her witch costume! She was delighted with herself and couldn’t stop laughing. 

Mince Pies

Halloween is hardly a breath gone, and yet we’ve already begun to indulge in the joys of the Christmas season… but who could resist? Mince pies and Christmas pudding are definitely growing on me the longer I stay in this part of the world. Mmmmm…

People keep telling us that we should cut down how much attention we give Georgie and try to wean her off coming upstairs with us, so she won’t be shocked when the baby arrives… so far, it’s not working… 🙂

  1. You grew those pumpkins!? You are fantastic. Isn’t it nice when all that gardening work pays off?

    Thanks for sharing pictures of your life. It looks pretty nice and snuggly. I can’t imagine trying to get Georgie ready for life with baby–giving up family times like those in that last picture would be pretty hard to do.

  2. Maryann,

    My advice regarding Georgie is just continue to treat her like a part of the family. She will love her little brother or sister. Dogs understand. Nothing like rocking a baby and scratching the ears of the four-legged child.
