.A Full House.

I love a house full of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  It's noisy and messy and hilarious.  I wished it happened all of the time.  Far away families are so special, but I can never get enough.

.Those Kinds of Weeks.

It's been those kinds of weeks where yes, we are busy, but I also don't know what we've exactly been busy with.  It's all just a blur, and suddenly it's nearly Thanksgiving and we're in the last weeks of classes and now I'm on the hunt for Christmas presents and making holiday plans, and where has the time gone??  It's like we've been in a black hole of events and deadlines and baby kisses and family visits and my camera card is full of shots of all of the above but why can't I ever seem to sit down long enough to sort through it all?  It hasn't been all about duty lately though as there has been time spent watching zombies and dramas and reading books about the past and future and even getting to bed at a decent hour.  I guess the only answer is time displacement.  I've been shuffling things up a bit around here and it hasn't been bad, it's just been... different.  But you can see that one thing is the same and my thoughts are scattered but either way there are only minor complaints (because this is real life after all), but lots of things us Tylers have to look forward to.

.Dress Up.

My dissertation proposal was this week and what a relief.  Just a few adjustments and I'll be ready to start collecting data (finally!).  Aside from focusing on that, G has been crazy busy finishing details to get the yogurt shoppe opened, and Dylan has been happily toying away with projects, and staying in motion.  This kiddo is always on the move.

For Halloween, Dylan dressed up as one of my favorite childhood characters- Nancy Drew.  She wasn't a fan of the headband, but she is such a little curious investigator, I thought she was well suited for the part.  We got to spend a nice evening in with our friends eating pizza and passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters before the girls were ready for bed.  To celebrate the holiday, Dylan even got to savor some chocolate.  It was the least I could do after she was such a good sport!

P.S. Dylan's costume last year.
