Booooo! Happy Halloween to All!


Now, just to prepare you... you will be seeing these shirts again.  Our own little version of the Griswold family LOVES to wear our Halloween gear.  During my visit to see the Little Men, we washed and wore these at least every other day!


Things are back in full swing at The Bungalow.  Maddox Air Conditioning is working away on a correction of faulty ducting done by a previous owner on one of the Old Girls.  Flooring people are laying new hardwoods on a not so old re-model. 


I am taking a moment to wish you all a very Happy Halloween.  May your days be filled with smiles and laughter...


May you find time to savor the beauty and joy of fall...


And, have a spooktacular good holiday!!


As you can see, holding still for these 'scary' cemetery photos was a challenge!  LOL!


Little Man had miles to run and too much to see to be slowed down for photos!


Now, is that just too sweet or what?  No bias here, of course.


Littlest Man had enjoyed our outing as much as he could... Sweet, sweet sleeping angel.


Now that I have whisked out a Happy Halloween wish to all, I am about to tackle this desk.  Yes, it is a 'big mess' as Little Man would say!!  Being gone for twelve days can leave you with some big messes to tend when you get home! 

blessings to all ~

That is an angelic pic --they all are wonderful!

The orange just bounces out at ya, doesn't it; it is a cheerful hue. And I feel better about my office stacks when I see your office photo.

Here's a completely unbiased opinion: Those "Little Men" are adorable! It was so much fun meeting them (you and Amanda too) in person. Looks like you all had a spooktacular time. I got home at 8 p.m. last night after dealing with snow, traffic, rain and my exit from I-65 completely blocked by an accident and forcing me to continue on another ten miles! My desk looks like yours. The washer is chugging away. I'm slowly making my way back to a semblance of order.

Thanks so much to all of you for spending time with me!

Best,
Bonnie

Such sweet photos, Tanna! Happy Halloween! I'm so glad you were able to your daughter and little men.

You should come back and enter my digital scrapbook software give away as I know you must have thousands of photos of your little granboys (like I do!) that you could scrap.I'm having lots of fun with the software.

Hi Tanna, so glad you are back and posting, I missed you! Since I am a new follower, I know nothing about this bungalow and the renovation? Is this a place you have recently moved into? This is your daughter and grandchildren?? You have a BEAUTIFUL family!! Do they live very far away? These pictures are priceless! I especially love the stroller with the goggles and of course the precious sleeping one with the thumb in the mouth. Your bamboo bowl in the post below is so pretty, and I love that bird even more. Did I know what state you live in? Aren't grandchildren just the BEST?

Kelly said...

So glad you're back! I love the Halloween photos you took of everyone. You all look so festive in your Halloween clothes. Ha! The kids are soooo cute.

Laura said...

Love the sweet pictures. The boys look way more fun than your desk!! Good luck catching up, glad you are back!!!

Jen said...

Welcome back! You guys are so cute in your matching shirts. :)

Julie Harward said...

Such a fun time, nothing like it! Loved the cute shirts on ya'all...have a fun Halloween! ;D

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

LOVE the shirts...love the cemetary photos...my desk gets like that from time to time and I do a FULL ATTACK!

So glad you had fun. SWEET little guys!! AND your daughter is SO cute!

Donna said...

Tanna, so glad you are back. I missed you. But, I'm so glad you got some time with your "little men" and their momma. And by the way, I love your hair cut...hmmmmm, time to let mine grow again?????
Happy All Saint's Eve to you and yours.

nanny said...

Well I love your shirts....
The pictures are great!
Alex in his sunglasses is priceless! And nothing sweeter than the sleeping AnRoo!!!

Chatty Crone said...

I can't say which is the prettiest picture - you all look great - beautiful family.

You had a nice time - I can tell.

Lauri said...

LOVE all the Halloween pics!! Those outfits are perfect for the occasion so I don't blame you one bit for getting lots of wear out of them. Hope you have a fun night with lots of cute lil' trick-or-treaters!

Christine said...

Great series of pictures.
I had to do a double take on the first picture. I didn't recognize you!
I thought it was Amanda!!
What a young Grandma you are.

So how's the "big mess" desk?

Karolee said...

Love the shirts! You have a beautiful family.

Betsy said...

Aw,..such cute pumpkins!

Taylor said 'big mess' for everything when he was that age. But it was more like "bee moss"...hahaha.

Tricia said...

Really fantastic photos! The Little Men are adorable. Hope you enjoyed Virginia and hope you missed the snow!

Emily said...

Happy Halloween!

I loved seeing the little men and you and your lovely daughter. Such a beautiful family!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Such Sweet Treats for Halloween~ Love the photos!

Katherine said...

Great pictures Tanna! I can't wait to see more pics from your visit with your little men! You've been missed in blog-land! Welcome home!

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Love the sweet orange shirts. You are all too cute! :)

Debbie said...

From one Griswold family to another: I love your matching family shirts and think you are adorable.

I nearly lost it with the thumb sucking picture. Cuteness like that should come with a warning.

(BTW, I loved your pondering over the Exodus post. That's exactly the way I chew on things. I actually have treasure that I found about that heart hardening. I'll try to email it when I have a pair of minutes. I'm chin deep in working on a charity thrift sale this week.)

Scarier than your desk, it is!

T's Daily Treasures said...

That sleeping little one is absolutely precious! I laughed when you said the "Griswold" clan. My ex-husband's last name was Griswold; when we divorced, I didn't switch back to my maiden name. My now hubby calls me "Griswold" and has been doing it for nearly 20 years. People are always asking why he calls me that. ha! It just became his nickname for me and stuck. Love your Halloween outfits. Glad to see you had such a great visit with your daughter and little men. Best wishes, Tammy P.S. Hope you made some progress on that desk. :)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

You all look so cute in the Halloween outfits! Great photos, you can just see the love between all of you!

Dianne said...

WONDERFUL photos of all of you! I especially fell in love with the little thumb in that sweet little mouth...beautiful baby!

Vickie said...

Hey Tanna - I've been MIA some lately -

How sweet are your "little men"! Even sweeter you all are in your orange! These are great pictures of your family and my fave is that little thumb in the mouth! That's all the Halloween sweets I need!

California Girl said...

Tanna, do you know if you scroll down quickly through your post the figures, particularly the Little Men, seem to move. It's pretty neat!

Kerin said...

Adorable pictures! I love the festive orange shirts :)
I've just found your blog...glad I did. I too love old houses and buildings.
I'm following you now, and looking forward to reading your posts...old and new.
I had to smile when I read about the duct work and air conditioning.
Amazing what P.O. of old homes do.
We are getting snow here, so the only thing blowing through our ducts is warm air.

Solar Powered said...

It makes me so happy knowing you guys are together :) I love the pics and sweet baby Roo sucking his thumb makes my heart swell...good thing I'm pregnant already...that picture made me WANT a BABY. :)

So how much are hard wood floors gonna run us in our new Arkansas home? 1800 sq feet, you know my taste.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, Solar. If you could have Leo Bolom (my magician with the old floors) he would put down new oak and finish it for $8/sf. If you end up with an exotic from Lumbar Liquidators and their guys to lay it, it will be close to $9/sf. If you get BM to do the work, about half of that. A little frightening... blessings ~ t.

Mary said...

Tanna, you have a beautiful family.The workon your desk will eventually get done. Your time with them is precious. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Shug said...

What a blessing it is to have family!

Debbie said...

How so very sweet! Thanks for sharing the candid shots, and I love those shirts! I just cleaned my desk today - sorta - wish I had a roll-top to hide away everything. Enjoy this lovely, cool weather, dear Tanna. Happy Fall!

Stitchfork said...
