    EJD October 2014 Review

    Yay, it’s November! The best month of the year. Well, at least that’s what Erin and I think. Our birthdays are both this month. But this post isn’t about November. It is really about what happened last month, so let’s forget the birthdays for right now and take a glimpse at our October blogging adventures:

    Erin and I spent a little time together in October. I packed up my two boys and headed to Ohio for a weekend and helped celebrate Erin’s daughter’s 10th Birthday. While I was there, we also decided to enter all four of our children in a local Halloween parade where Erin’s son took 2nd place.
