great-pumpkin-nyc-1 (1) When my mom and sister were in town we walked to the subway to go home and saw these pumpkins. I had to take a picture.

Princess A was thrilled by them and loved climbing all around the pumpkins.

great-pumpkin-nyc-3 (1) I was so looking forward to this Halloween because it is Princess A’s first Halloween where she can actually walk around and “Trick or Treat”. We had a ton of things planned but don’t know what we will be doing because no one can get anywhere do to Hurricane Sandy flooding the subways.

Get Over it Mom!

I was kind of sad about the possibility of Halloween being canceled but then I realized Princess A is at the perfect age for our plans to be so drastically changed. She has no expectations yet and finds the fun in all things. The past 2 days she hasn’t left our apartment once. Every once in a while she points to the door and starts to cry but then I hand her a toy and she forgets about it. Thanks Princess A!

I ain’t scared of you Sandy!

So we may go to a party, we may trick or treat, or we may just wear our costumes and make tents in our apartment. Who knows!?!?

great-pumpkin-nyc-7 (1) But whatever we do we will have fun because we are together and safe… and really after the past couple of days we don’t need anymore tricks!

    I am so happy to hear you are safe. That really is what matters. Love her little broche (button) on her coat!

    She likes the big pumpkins, not the small ones like they had at the pumpkin patch party. The look of joy on her face was priceless!

    I want one of those huge pumpkins. Even though your plans fell through because of this stupid storm, at least your all ok. I’m sure you’ll find something fun to do.

      Yeah, I think some people in my building might be doing trick or treating!

    Her coat is so awesome! I think the big pumpkins impress her. The little ones are too ordinary for her, she likes the out of the ordinary stuff! Glad she made it through the hurricaine okay. I’m sorry Freckles didn’t fare well. Hopefully he now has enough bacon and belly rubs to make him feel better!

      He is doing better. He just hates not having his long walks.
