where has the month gone?

since the 14th, when i made my last post i have had a CRAZY wild time, there was good stuff and really bad stuff:
the good stuff included telling our whole family and all our friends that we were expecting, the really bad was that a week later we had to tell them all that i had lost the baby.

also during that time i:
took a trip to Ohio which included a visit to a pumpkin farm, hay ride and all, the discovery of Kettle brand salt and pepper ship (yum), the drinking of a Yeungling (also yum), a caramel latte, carving pumpkins, TRYING to teach Marci how to knit (didnt go so well, im NOT a born teacher).

had lunch with the in laws at Boneyard Grill.

had dinner with prospective core group members who would partner with us during Church In the Grass's BIG change (more on that later)

cut my hair

super cleaned the house and conquered the laundry mountain for all of 3 minutes

took D to a halloween party where he debuted his jedi costume and ran into Cora from Kent Baptist.

went to the library no less than 5 times

went to Walmart no less than 15 times

and oh how could i forget!??

gave a long distance welcome to my brand new nephew Jackson!!!
(and FYI it does not make me sad or otherwise upset to see picture of my new baby nephew just a week after miscarrying, im so happy that he is healthy and surrounded by loving family, and i cant wait to meet him! Lindsay will be a GREAT mom and Chris, if Uncle Sean has faith in your madd Daddy skilz, then so do I))

so thats a breif overview of the last 2 weeks, i hope to be a better blogger this week.

You can not say, "I cut my hair," and not post a picture.
