This weekend is the 1 year anniversary of the "Surprise October Storm" that we got hit with last year. Just last week we were breaking records of 85 degree weather in October, and here is a picture of us at the same time last year! Crazy, I know.
We lost power for almost a week and all the schools in the area were closed for over a week! A lot of trees were damaged and had to be cut down this year. We got together with our block club this summer and purchased some trees with grant money. Here's a picture of Marc planting one of them.
In other news, I had a book club meeting this week and this past month's book was:
And I have to tell you that this was one of our favorite books we've read so far! For this month, we wanted to read something on the scary side, so we decided on:
Ooooh, a ghost story! I love telling ghost stories to the kids in the library!
Ok, enough about the weather and books - the other night I had a dream about Poppy! The three of us were at the beach, we were the only ones there and the sun was beginning to set. Marc was holding Poppy's hands as she was trying to walk and I could see her tiny footprints in the sand. I was trying to get her to say "Momma" and she was making noises, but they didn't really sound like momma. That was my first vivid dream like that and it was really cool.
