Halloween is my very favorite holiday and this year we were very thankful to all be safe and healthy enough to trick or treat. The neighborhood coordinated a socially distanced trick or treat route, and most houses left candy at the foot of their driveway. The girls got more than usual, actually. Paw Patrol is on a roll!

Morning baby cuddles
I keep waiting for “I want to hold her” to get old – but the girls are still enamored with their little sister Orly. And Orly is getting more and more enamored with them by the day, although they are no match for me still!
I’m loving our neighbor’s COVID Halloween flare.
Rose family carving happened this weekend on the back porch. Kaya is finally old enough to pull out some pumpkin innards on her own and she made a “Coronavirus” pumpkin. Maggie freaked out when she realized we were thinking of cutting apart her pumpkin, so we only carved two this year!
We ran into impervious surface limits for our new house, which left us with a huge central driveway gap and a skinny driveway. This was impossible to drive on without the car falling into the gap, and it was pretty much an emergency to fill it with some gravel. So everyone pitched in! And grandpa only grumbled a little about us using his truck for gravel hauling.
She can’t make any real friends due to COVID, so we found her some fake friends to smile at. I don’t think she knows the difference!
The perfect patient
We think the world of UNC audiology – and I am so impressed with my little Maggie, who has the concentration and patience to sit through a LONG audiology exam every few months. She is doing great and talking up a storm these days. (And, notice her beautiful new haircut).
We are super super super excited to move into the permanent Rose homestead. This house is the culmination of many years of dreaming and planing. Oxbow Crossing here we come!
Sometimes you just really need to drag the kids to Panera to answer emails because your internet is out at home.
COVID soccer fans
We skipped spring soccer due to COVIDophobia, but decided to let the girls play this fall. It seems pretty safe compared to general school/daycare, and we watched most of the games from the back of the pickup truck. A new definition of tailgating.
