End of October Happenings

The month of October is quickly coming to an end.  Only a week left, which makes me a little sad because October happens to be one of my favorite months.  But, with so much going on lately, it's difficult to dwell on the fact that it's almost over.

Josh is still on nights.  He starts a new service on November 1st, so I guess that's one reason to be happy that October is almost over!  Ryan and I have been busy busy having festive fall playdates with friends.  Last week we met at Nashoba Winery for a picnic and pumpkin painting with many of our little girlfriends.  The pumpkin painting was a good idea, in theory.  But real painting only lasted about 45 seconds.  I'm thinking art supply usage is still a few months off with this toddler.  We haven't quite mastered the concept that we don't eat paint.

There are now more leaves on the ground than there are on the trees, which provides lots of fun for Ryan and picture taking opportunities for me.  But it also means winter is quickly approaching and I'm not sure I'm ready for a Massachusetts winter yet.  Actually, I know I'm not.

We were also so lucky to have one of my best high school friends Alexa all the way out here from Seattle, Washington for a few days.  We hadn't seen her since December of last year so this was quite a treat.  She got to see what day to day life is like with a toddler.  Lucky her. :) Ryan now has a new BFF and we miss her already!

And now we are busy prepping for my birthday, last minute Halloween costumes, and most importantly, my parents arrival from California tomorrow.   This last week of October is definitely going to fly by.
