#MMM What a Great Weekend!

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support this week. It helped tremendously.

Now, on to the fun stuff...Fuss had her first "Halloween party" at the library's Mother Goose hour. She dressed up as Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog (pics to come later). Hubby took her and she went "trick-or-treating" around the library. :)

Friday evening was pretty boring. You know, aside from the tantrums and meltdowns that are standard fare for a 2-year-old.

Saturday was the best day, though! Fuss carved her first pumpkin! She also drew a "face" on one. She HATED the way the insides of the pumpkin felt and refused to touch it after she realized it was icky.

We also cooked dinner at my MIL's house (where we carved the pumpkins) and it was delicious! We made flat iron steak with this recipe. Since it was raining, Hubby broiled the steak instead of putting it on the grill, but it turned out amazing! We had salad, potatoes, peas, and pumpkin roll for dessert. The pumpkin roll was store bought, but it still tasted really great. My MIL even asked for the recipe! I think, though, that next time I will use tomato sauce or tomato juice instead of tomato paste to keep from having to strain so much of it. That part was a pain in the butt.

The one bad thing? Beast decided to EAT one of the pumpkins! I think it made him sick because he wanted out at 1 a.m. and again at 7 a.m. Usually once he is in his kennel for the night around 10, he stays there till 7 or 8 a.m. Serves him right for eating random things. (He ate 1/2 yard of a blanket once just before Christmas.)

Now, we are preparing ourselves for the "Frankenstorm" that is supposed to hit us with a few inches of snow and some seriously high winds. I can only hope we aren't out of power for a week like we were in July. And I hope that the people on the coast and up North don't get hit too badly either. Fingers are crossed that the weather forecasters are wrong on this one.

  1. The storm looks nasty from what we can see on the BBC news and from what my family in the US are saying. Stay safe, hope you don't loose poser! :(
