The day after Frankenstorm we were without power.
We are surround by big trees, so power loss was expected.
Major damage was also expected and we're so thankful nothing more happened to us.
We're lucky, we were only inconvenienced for a day.
These pictures were taken in the dark with my phone.
Drew had breakfast by the fire and read catalogs with a headlight.
These are good times people.
I had to pull the pumpkins in so they wouldn't become missiles in the wind.
I didn't realize how many we had.
It turns out that a day off from school is the perfect time to create your costume.
We found the mask and I just made the black drape out of fabric I had on hand. The sickle is made out of a broom handle, cereal box and tin foil. He loves it. (I like it because I don't think he can injure himself or anyone else with it.)
-He's the grim reaper in case you're wondering-
Everything is back to normal at Monkey Grass Hill and we're ready for a big night of Halloween fun.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who won't be celebrating tonight. The damages and loss so many have suffered is truly heartbreaking.
