It’s been a while…

Over the last couple of months, we have had a lot going on.  Way more than could be captured in blog posts, which is the explanation for the recent lack of activity here.  We closed on a new house a while back, and had some work done on it before we moved in.  Then came the really tough stuff…unpacking all of our stuff after the movers brought it all into the new house.

Well, as of tonight it feels like we are finally turning the corner on settling into our new home.  Part of that was to get ready for trick or treaters.  We knew to make sure that we had a ton of candy, but to make our house a a little more unique we placed Halloween luminarias rather than jack-o-lanterns outside.  Luminarias are an element associated with the southwestern United States, and are typically set out on Christmas Eve.

I’m not sure that any of the 50+ kids that came by thought much about the luminarias when they passed them as they walked up to our door, but we did get lot’s of comments about how “awesome” our candy bucket was and how “(we had) the best house in the neighborhood”.
