Time Change

Not so happy about the early darkness so a cup of tea and a fire to cheer me up. A very busy week...

Friday we headed out after I got out of work for MT Washington hotel. It is one of those very old historic hotels and breath taking
even thought the the mountains were socked in with 100 mile of hour winds and snow!

The moon gave it a spooky glow after dark. We were there for an awards banquet our former fire chief in town was named fire fighter of the year, the really cool fact is his daughter is our fire chief now.

The next morning things cleared just beautiful! I love the mountains. After we left there we shopped some then met up for trick or treating.

Our  sweet B and her pepe. She had a dog bowl she used as her trick or treat bag. 

Daughter dressed as Play-Doh so stinking cute!
And because we wanted to keep it classy that would be B peeing on the hydrant:)

The neighborhoods go all out this one had a fog machine and a bubble machine we had to drag B away she loves bubbles.

Back to shopping I purchased these white battery candles.
they come with a remote nice but I can't leave anything alone.

I decoupaged some tissue paper I got from a cute shop 
Added a wool bow and a rusty star to each. 

This was the tissue paper so cute 
It matches things perfectly and I used cinnamon so it smells good too. 
Have a great week 
We must always have old memories and young hope.

OMG the pic of B taking a pee on the hydrant is hysterical. Pepe sure looks like a proud grandpa whenever she is around. I bet they had a blast

That hotel looks amazing.
Your daughter's costume was too cute and Miss B is just a hoot. Did Pepe put her up to that?
I love what you did to the candles. I have some (no remote - boo hoo) but they are just blah. Did you use modge podge (or watered down glue) to adhere the tissue? So clever.
Oh, these weekends pass too quickly...sigh.
Hugs :)

I have always wanted to stay there, a bit pricey for me.
I love their outfits, that is so cute and clever.
I like your new look on the candles, great way to prim them up.

What a fun Halloween and I love the costumes! You know I love this time of year and I love Halloween and your town is like ours...folks go all out for the kiddos! (and the adults!) Your family is adorable! I'm not fond of this time change. I hate that it's dark at 6:00 and even though it's light in the morning now...soon that will gone too...pooh! Oh well, I'll have to put a fire in too and enjoy a cup of tea with you!
