Back in the swing of things...

I know...the posts have been few and far between this year...it's been a busy, busy year.  But that's about to change (well the posting part anyway).  I'm ready to get back to crafting & party planing and sharing all my ideas with you.

Here's a little of what has been happening in our life:

Summer vacation FLEW by--it seemed it was over before it begun, which I guess tends to happen when you welcome a new baby to your family right in the middle of it.  Baby Ollie (nicknamed so you won't confuse him with big brother O) joined our family July 29...we are all thrilled!

The big kids went back to school...and the family back to a routine-

And then 2 days after school started hurricane Irene hit...which was a big mess of downed trees & power lines, the shed off the back of the house squashed by a huge oak tree (thankfully the house & car & more importantly our family were all okay), 3 days of no school, almost 6 days of no power (but a generator to use), a week and a half with no Internet & still no t.v. (I am seriously missing my Top Chef Desserts, Project Runway, & Design star). Thankfully we are on our way back to normal :)

 the shed...or what's left of it

a huge tree coming across the road into our yard...there were at least 4 huge trees crossing the road blocking access to our neighbors and us

downed power lines and a few broken branches from a larger tree

Thankfully through out our neighborhood there was only minimal damage done to houses even though there were A LOT of trees down.  We feel soooo blessed :)

Now we are ready to get back to normal...which means more blogging :) Watch for more posts coming to Faith & Air Dumplings too!
