Good morning and happy, happy, HAPPY Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Anything fun and exciting to report?
Our weekend was really nice. Halloween was kind of a bust, but Saturday was a lot of fun and Sunday was productive, so we had a good balance of everything that makes up a lovely weekend.
So… Halloween. It’s not a favorite holiday in the Haupert household. Obviously, I love the candy and the costumes, but Mal can take ’em or leave ’em and, as you might remember, Murphy does NOT like Halloween. At all.
When the trick-or-treaters arrived at our house on Friday evening, we put Murphy outside on the back porch. We didn’t want him barking or jumping on the kids, so we basically banished him to the backyard. Murphy doesn’t like to miss a thing, so, not surprisingly, he didn’t enjoy being away from the action and proceeded to bark, scratch at the door, and freak (the f) out for the next 3 hours. Poor pug. We felt terrible for the little guy, but we really didn’t have any other options. *Sigh* Halloween is still Murphy’s least favorite holiday.
On the costume front, Mal and I were pretty pumped about Quinn’s homemade Halloween costume.
We dressed him up as a scuba diver, but he wasn’t nearly as enthusiastic as we were. It was his bedtime, so Quinn lasted about 5 minutes before he got upset, so we changed him into his PJs and put him to bed.
So, yea, it wasn’t our best Halloween, but the remainder of the weekend was better!
On Saturday afternoon, Mal and I joined some friends at Westport Rivers Winery for a wine tasting.
Mal and I visited this winery a few times in the past and always had a wonderful time, so we were especially excited to spend the afternoon tasting wines with our friends.
