Halloween 2017

What’s just as cute as a cuddly 7-month old in a dragon/dino costume?

A 19-month old in the same dragon/dino costume of course!

Last year I searched around for a friendly green alligator costume or the like, and I finally settled on a green creature I’ve come to call the dragon/dino. The size was listed as “infant,” and I figured it should fit him more or less. MORE was the key word, and the sizing was so big I did quite a bit of folding and tucking as I draped him in his green suit.

This year at 35 inches tall he was spot on in his “infant suit.” πŸ˜‚ Next year I suspect we will have to find something new to dress him up in. And maybe we will get a picture with both parents.

Winter has been threatening to come early, and we’ve already had several snowfalls that made our world turn white. The ground is warm enough that none of it sticks for too long, but it makes me wary. I know the permanent drifts and snow of the winter season are far closer than I wish.


Everything is melted a few hours later, but the girls still moved off the last of the pasture for the season on November 1st.

As predicted it has been a long harvest, but we can finally see the end of the field work. We are also in the midst of trying to pack for our move to the house at the farm, and that is proving to be a long process. Speedy’s favorite part of packing is unpacking, so if I’m not careful everything is undone when I shift my attention elsewhere for very long. I will still take this helper one hundred times over rather than being without him though. 😊

I specifically try not to wish time away, but it’s true that I will be grateful when all the moving, sorting, transition, and paperwork from this year are behind us.
