Checkin' In

*sigh* I am tired today, but I have some spare time and thought I'd send a little love out to you all. Let's get to it!

  • We did indeed go to the pumpkin cart on the road to Lockport last week and picked up some pumpkins. Abby picked out one for her and one for Malachi and has been carting tiny pumpkins all over the house. She's quite proud of them and would happily go back for the rest of them. True story.


  • It's official: Abigail is potty trained! That was a long painful journey, but we all made it. Her rewards included a Papa/daughter movie date and new Strawberry Shortcake panties. Big deal in the Gingras house!

  • Yesterday, Malachi turned 11 months old and tomorrow Abigail will be 3 months away from her 3rd birthday. Looooong days, short years!
  • David and I had a painting date yesterday and the play kitchen is looking so great. I've decided that I'm not going to show you any more in progress pictures because it will make the reveal that much more exciting. We have another painting date booked for next week and we're almost finished. 

  • I'm recovering from the stomach flu and haven't touched my Christmas projects in over a week and a half. I really need to get to them, but I am having a hard time getting into the swing of it again. I can't afford to leave it too long, there are a whole bunch of them.
  • I am also in the process of planning two birthday parties for next month. David is turning 35 and Malachi will be 1. Thankfully, Malachi won't remember his birthday and I can keep it super simple. 


  • Do you have a Mac? Well, my toddler spent a long time in front of photobooth this morning. She especially loves the mirror effect. I keep forgetting the entertaining features of this and really appreciated how occupied dolly was for awhile.

  • I whipped out the winter coat yesterday. It was cold. It is October and I don't really mind.

Funny, My hubby just turned 35 as well and in Sept MJ turned 1. Neat that this is so similar for us.

The Mac does ROCK! Just sayin.
