The Newtons trying to meet some of our neighbors. (Judging by her expression, Miss Pepper must have seen a shockingly awesome costume walk by as this photo was snapped.)
Our first neighborhood event! One of the many reasons we love our Nest is that it’s located on a wonderful street with lots of great families and a group of neighbors who organize fun, street-wide activities. Halloween is the first of these activities we have been able to be a part of, so we decided to take this opportunity to meet more of our neighbors by participating in the Halloween festivities. And, of course, we couldn’t leave Miss Pepper out of the trick-or-treat fun, so she joined us as a Candy [Pepper] Corn.
Our little Candy PepperCorn.
P.S. Isn’t it fitting that our first official holiday as Aberdeeners is Halloween?? I mean, hands-down, we have the spookiest house on the street. 😉
…a little spooky, but we still love it! 😉
For those of you who don’t know, Matthew’s childhood nickname was “Red”. So, it’s only fitting that this big crimson creature was delivered to us today, on the eve before our big clean up day! Not sure if we can fill it up, but we’re sure going to try.
P.S. Just for fun, here’s a childhood picture of Matthew a.k.a. Little Red:
Hi, we’re the Newtons! Matthew, Lauren and Miss Pepper.
The Newton Nest is set to chronicle the good, the bad and the ugly of our new “project” — renovating a 1940s Cape Cod that has stood vacant for 4+ years and is in need of some serious TLC. (Testing for Lice and Cockroaches? Truly Left to Cave-in? Wait, no…Tender Love and Care! OR was it Testing our Love and Commitment?) Any way you look at it, we are in for an interesting first year of marriage as we build our nest.
