back from Massachusettes

We are back from Boston MA, a whirlwind of a trip! Tom, the kids and I headed out Friday aiming for Amherst MA to make the trip there slightly shorter and to check out the Eric Carle Picture book museum. The museum is on the small side but still very lovely. It was amazing to see things like Mary Blair’s paintings up close.

There was snow, beautiful snow–which made up for us missing the big snowfall back home. Two hotel stays with beds for jumping, Kam Man Marketplace for shopping, and one Halloween outlet (which didn’t live up to the stuff we read about it, but oh well) The show was great as usual. The photo up there was taken at the very end, thanks to everyone who came out, said hello, or bought some goods!

Then after the show we packed up and headed home—a very long 7 hour drive. We didn’t get home till almost 3am, and it felt like the drive would never ever end. So happy to be home and ready to get into full on Christmas mode!! I have to go pack some orders, and I will update my Etsy with the goods I have left some time this afternoon.
