glad to be back!

 
 HERE I AM!!
finally back.  Well I don't even know where to begin.  Ive been busy.. but with all the same things that Ive always been busy with.. grandpies and family, crafting, decorating, working, playing..  
lets see.. I had a birthday a week or so ago and turned 29 again.  My family surprised me with a little surprise dinner party and they all pitched in and gave me this awesome new computer!  I just love them all so much.  I told them NOT to spend their money on me.. and of course, they did.   It was a pretty chaotic party at the restaurant.. but that's how my family rolls...  in a totally beautiful chaoticness!  It can not be helped.. there are a lot of us.. and we are always trying to fit in small areas!  lol!  anyways..   I am truly blessed and I thank God every single day for the people in my life.
I of course am all kinds of obsessed with Halloween.  You know I cant help myself.   this year I finally have some blowmolds!  I see some of my peeps on IG lighting up whole cities with their collections and I had to find some of my own!  lol!  I had one already.. the pumpkin on the cat.  then I mentioned to a friend at work that I was wanting to find some and the next day the little ghost was sitting in front of my office door!  sweet little thing!  (both my friend and the ghost!)  Then that same day I found 4 more on Craigs list!  and my awesome hubby drove down to Dansville and then out to Penfield to pick the the others up!  now I have the little crew in this picture... and yes.. I am feeling the urge to have more...  LOL!  just a little problem, I really don't have a great place to put them.  I would have put them on the porch, but I have not decorated the porch as the house is under construction and the porch has been being repaired.. 
well that's another crazy thing that is going on.  our house is over 100 years old.. and the porch was dropping in the front.  Tony managed to fix it with out having to tear it off and rebuild it.  I didn't want new windows or to have to pay for new windows.  he managed to save them all.  so that's being done and our neighbor is painting the house and my hubby will soon be putting a new roof on it as well..   lots of work. 
So what else?  all the pies are good..   did you know that we're expecting another one ?  I cant remember if that announcement was made before my computer died or after.   Any ways.. yuppers.. getting a new baby!  Rob and Tiffany are expecting in April!  we love us some babies round here!  lol!
So my son thinks that my Halloween decorating is a little extensive.  lol.   I think so too!  lol!  Im glad that I know some others who are just like me!
Tomorrow Im going to visit someone who is also a Halloween fanatic.. I'll ask if I can take pictures!
such fun!
have a great day my little blogger buds!

Hey Viv,
Glad your back always love watching for your decorations ! Heard that Buffalo is getting a 1920 era Merry--go-round, its being refurbed; thought of you bet it will be wonderful. I won't get to see it but hope you and grandpies do and I look forward to pics :) E

So good to see you again! Love seeing your decorations. I have to admit that I had never heard the term "blow mold" so I had to look it up. Well, I know what they are, just didn't know what they are called:)Congrats on the coming baby (we are getting a baby in April too!) and Happy birthday. Love, Cindy

I am so glad to see you, Viv. I was thinking about you today-that I hadn't seen you since I started blogging again. I planned on looking you up--but here you are.
Congrats on another new baby coming...and on getting a computer for your 29th!!!! birthday!
You do Halloween like nobody does Halloween! Have a great Sunday with your family. xo Diana

I love your blowmolds. I could have gotten the one in Dansville lol it's only a little ways away from where I lived. I am now living in Rochester. I love you Halloween decorations. Happy Belated 29th Birthday!

Lynn said...

Very nice of the kids to get you the computer, and in time for Halloween too:@) Have fun!

Theresa said...

What a sweet gift that gave you back to us:) Happy Belated 29th B'day:) I adore all of your Halloween cuties! I have missed YOU and hearing about all of your 'pies"! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Love your collection of blow molds. I have most of those but never find a really good place to light them up and display them. I go overboard on decorating too, but if it makes you happy, who cares?

Vivian! Imagine that being said as if you were walking into Cheers! : ) So glad you're back and I'm glad yout family got you a new computer for your birthday. Happy belated birthday. You've been missed!

I love your Halloween décor, although you put me to shame since my birthday is on Halloween. These days I only put out a few things for Halloween and save my decorating energy up for Christmas. Congrats on the new grandbaby on its way. Ours arrived at the beginning of September and we are enjoying her, while making sure to pay attention to #1.

I'm so happy that your family got you a new computer. Well deserving. I didn't know about your house construction. How exciting! You know I love your Halloween decor. Keep it coming! Happy Blogging!

PS. I hope you keep on using IG too.
