The Witch Trials

Just an update to let all of you know that Andy & I will be driving up to Salem Massachusetts this weekend. We're staying over night. So I will hopefully have many photos for you next week.
I wish you all a safe & happy Halloween.
Be safe all you ghouls & goblins!

run, run, run as fast as you can!

Yesterday, my family had our weekly saturday morning breakfast. Tessa wanted to go outside, so I took her outside while my aunts and grandmother fixed cookie trays.
All the following photos are from about a half an hour or more of Tessa running around my aunts front yard.

CT Renaissance Faire

And as I promised last week, I finally got around to uploading the photos from the Connecticut Renaissance Faire to my computer. I didn't get that many, it was freezing and I was carrying around the bag with my dress & cloak that I bought, I also bought Andy a completely hand made metal sword. It's really nice, he was so excited when I told him that I'd buy it for him. 
Also, I have a car now, so expect some more photos other than my front & back yards. I'll be picking up my car on Wednesday.
And, yet another announcement, and this one isn't a happy one, Conall's leg came apart on me today when I was changing his shoes. If anyone can help me figure out how to re-string his right leg from the knee down, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Now for the photos:

I love the woman knights face (in the background) in these photos with the Princess and Prince on horse back with the knights following on their horses.

The following archery photos are from the part of the day where Andy entered the Archery Competition to with another sword. It was a gorgeous sword. The one's with the man in the kilt are when the archery competition instructor came over to Andy and started shouting at him in front of the entire crowd for making a stupid mistake and shooting the marker arrow instead of the arrows in the cup on the side of his "cubicle" (that's the best way I can describe where he stood for the competition). It was so funny and so much fun to watch this competition.

These following photos are of the gymnast/contortionist woman that was at the Faire. She was amazing! She was so adorable too. She talked to the crowd the entire time & really made us interact with her.

Spaghetti & Scarecrows

I apologize for not updating lately. I've been rather busy with school. I've gotten a few nights where I was able to spend them all with Andy. So I was very happy. As much as it looks like I'm always spending time with him, I'm really not, I rarely ever get to spend actual time with him where I'm not doing homework.
Just so you know, I will hopefully be uploading photos from the Connecticut Renaissance Faire next week when I have time. I'm starting my field study at the high school I was placed at, so I'm not sure when I will have time for photography.

Dinner time!
Doesn't dinner look absolutely delicious?!

My favorite photo from the night. GRRRRRR!

Scarecrow Walk time! Today was so much fun! I loved getting photos of the walk to see all the scarecrows!

We had to look for chestnuts. haha

We also had to pick leaves. I couldn't resist, they're just so gorgeous this year!
