October is usually a pretty busy month for us, and although we had a lot of rainy weekends, we still had a lot to do! Tom and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary (also celebrating 20 years together, which blows my mind!). Tom's employer held a large Family Day event, so we took Henry for the first time. He had a lot of fun and was very well-behaved, considering how busy and loud it was! My stepmom and dad hosted their annual Halloween party for their grandkids. Although he couldn't do all the activities, Henry loved running around after his cousins.
Unfortunately, my stepgrandfather (my stepmom's father) passed away this month. Even though it was somewhat expected, it's still very sad. John was the strong, silent type, but could also be very funny. When we were younger, he used to take all of us kids out on his boat, going crabbing and taking rides in the bay and ocean (even though I got horribly seasick). He was in my life for longer than most of my own grandparents. Next month there will be a memorial/celebration of life for him.
To end things on a happier note, I hope everyone had a happy Halloween! Here is a picture of our little Staypuft Marshmallow Man! (Quick funny story - the store we visited to get Henry's costume had like nothing in his size, and then we randomly came across this one, which ended up working out perfectly because Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies!)
