My wonderful husband informed me that the digital camera we bought in 2006 (the one I feel super duper comfortable using and downloading pictures from) is ancient and really needed to be upgraded. So he found a great deal on a truly amazing camera that has the abilities to turn any photographer into Ansel Adams. "What's wrong with that?" you might ask. Well, this new camera requires a certain computer speed in order to download pictures (this century), which my 2005 laptop is evidently unable to handle without blowing up! So I thought I could navigate around this difficulty with our other new technology -- our phones. My phone takes great pictures so I thought, "I will just take pics on my phone and upload them to the blog. Easy-peasy!" But not so fast, unless you have a Facebook account (which I don't and won't...ever...so don't ask me...), you can't post pictures to another blog site (Really is there anything Mark Zuckerberg doesn't own at this point?). So my only option was to beg my husband to burn a copy of the pictures to a disc (which during football season is a tall order), put the disc in my "abacus" of a computer, and then find a free moment to blog (which gets us to today!).
There has been another technical difficulty to posting sooner than today...Technically, I'm pregnant! Although I'm sure my first trimester was still light years better than a lot of women's, there was some not so fun nausea and fatigue...oh the fatigue!!! Working full-time, chasing after a very active toddler, and growing arms, legs, etc., and dealing with two rounds of Logan and I getting sick (thank you playdates!) has made me one pooped mama. Although I love you who check out the blog to see what's going on with our family, sleep took precedent over blogging. But now that I am 17 weeks along and into the second trimester, I'm getting some energy back and thought I better make use of it while I've got it!
Here are pictures from October and Logan's Halloween / Fall fun. I promise to post Thanksgiving pictures before Christmas!! ;)
