Happy 1st, Babies!

Today marks the day that the Trishlets have been on this earth for one whole year!  I still find myself shocked that there are actually three of them.  I thought it would be nice to take a stroll down memory lane with 12 special moments captured on digital software throughout this past year.  Henry, Grace, and Thomas, my look how much you’ve grown!

Trick or Treat

fall-pumpkins-and-leaves

This Halloween season has certainly been an eventful one.  My car had fallen victim to some mischief night hijinks, I spent my free time crafting and carving, and I found my way back to realizing why Halloween is so great after feeling indifferent towards it for a few years.

Let’s start from the top though.

I left my class on the eve of Halloween only to be greeted by some choice images on my car windows.  I spotted the one on my driver’s window immediately and laughed.  The thought to try and rid my car of the explicit drawings before I operated it didn’t really cross my mind because I wanted others, specifically my sisters, to witness the absurdity.  Also, it wasn’t until I turned the car on that I noticed the front window plastered, and then a few minutes en route I craned my neck to the right and saw that the other windows were hit up as well.  The 20 minute ride allowed me to tabulate my thoughts in this fashion:

I don’t really consider myself to be a crafty person, but then again I did work in a preschool for 4 years so I suppose I picked up some tips and tools.  Halloween is truly a crafty, pinterest lover’s dream holiday.  There are endless possibilities for fun and you can really go wild if you allow yourself to.  Yet, for the last few years or so I’ve had an ambivalent attitude towards it.  Maybe it stems from the candy feign in me still wishing I was allowed to go trick or treating, or maybe it is from the lame, skimpy outfits girls and women my age think they can get away with because after all that’s what Halloween embodies, right?  Either way I haven’t really been festive for quite some time now.  This year with my new life circumstances my attitude has been turned around and I would go as far as saying the positive feelings towards Halloween have been revived.
