Every time a child says, "I don't believe in fairies," there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead.

been a while...

So we moved into our house at the end of October, and as you can imagine its been non stop ever since! The first week we here in New York were hit with an early snowstorm, that due to the leaves still being on the trees, took many of them down, including the one across our road right onto our power line! Queue no power for 6 whole days. No heat, no light - nada. And to say it was freezing is an understatement! Luckily we had hot water, for an as yet unknown reason, and with having a fireplace we could have some heat during the day. Sadly the children missed the chance to play in the first snow of winter in our new home, as it was just too freezing in the house to warm them up again. They also missed Halloween - which of course was very upsetting - seems to be their favorite day of the year! Non stop unpacking and painting, buying bits and bobs for various rooms, then boom the holidays hit. As of the day after Christmas we have a new addition to the family - an 8 week old Newfoundland Landseer puppy. He is adorable, but was ridden with fleas - so that plus the non stop night whining has been a challenge to say the least! I'm really hoping for a break when January comes. Although I'm determined to get my party business up and running so that will clearly take up some time. Still a lot to do around the house - funny how something like losing power for a week can seem to set you back for months!
