lights on the tree

thanksgiving was a ball. trust me when i say that because i don’t know if i even took any photos. those in attendance can attest to the fact that our food and festivity were tops.

and then, suddenly, everyone thinks it’s christmas. folks, it’s not christmas until it’s christmas. cool your jets. advent hasn’t even started yet!

nevertheless, we bundled ourselves up on saturday and walked into the village for the tree lighting. it was rather uneventful, and archer didn’t even bat an eye at the random dude dressed as santa.

this puffy plaid number archer is wearing was $1 at our local thrift shop. it feels like i’ve been waiting forever for colder temps just so he could sport this marshmallow suit.


pumpkin pie

we didn’t do much today because i am sick, but look how cute our little pumpkin is! you can’t tell, but he’s matches his little jack-o-lantern with two scraggly teeth on the bottom of his grin. this $0.50 costume from the local thrift store was well worth it.

say “ahh”vocado

this boy likes avocado! he especially likes trying to feed himself.

in other news, we’re feeling some major gusts of wind from sandy. my mom & dad are in town for him to travel to canada on business. his flights have been cancelled today, so he will be driving up through maine. robert went to work about 20 minutes ago. i’m worried a tree is going to fall and prevent him from coming home. my mom is staying with us, so i’m going to pick her up in a few minutes.

i’ve got chills, they’re multiplyin’—sandy’s losin’ control. (image via jezebel /

my main concern is that all the autumn leaves will be history. our tree in the front is already bare. it’s just not fair. it feels like autumn in boston lasted just a week.
