Halloween Party

We went to a fun little party on Wednesday so we can actually post Halloweeny pictures before November. Woohoo!
My sweet lion, Noah.
Isaac could not tear himself away from the "treat toss" [the receiving area] for any length of time. (I'm the zookeeper) The Poseys are some of our new best friends. Aren't they so cute?
There was an "eat the doughnut off the string" game. I told Isaac he couldn't use his hands.He went around and around because his trunk got in the way.So close...! Finally he just picked up the string and bit it off.
Happy Halloween, everybody!

Standard of Living

So we've had a few requests to post pictures of our "new" apartment...maybe my grim tone of voice has made our loved ones worried. Anyhoo, here they are. If you have a problem with what I've "done with the space," you can just fight me...or give me some pointers because I don't know what the heck I'm doing.

Let's start with the best part: the view from our floor. It's great because we're on the top and it feels more secluded with all the trees. This picture really doesn't capture the fall colors that we're seeing lately, and today was an especially beautiful day: it was windy but sunny, so the leaves were shining like gems as they fell.

From the entrance of our building...

We have a playground right in front of our building.

(Disregard the trash in the background)

The living/dining room...

The CC (not to be confused with WC), or Cooking Closet:

Isaac's room:

Noah's room/play room:


There's nothing like moving to make you appreciate your old situation. But we are enjoying the good things and trying to work with the annoying ones.

So whaddya think?
