The pumpkin Fairy 2016

Hellooooo Fall! So excited for the crisp cold air, the gorgeous leaves and of course those beautiful pumpkins!

Last Sunday I celebrated 4 years of my blog- Mama Carp & co!!. It’s pretty easy to remember the date and year since we launched it on my most favorite Mother in laws 90th birthday October 16th.  So Sunday Craig and I went to celebrate her 94th birthday and as always she ended up making both our days!! What a divine soul she is- Marge is SUCH an amazing person!!


So, 4 years…That’s pretty awesome I’d say! I thought it would be fun to catch up by sharing a favorite photo of mine from each month from the past year.

Such sweet babies! Never did I think my heart would repair after the loss of our Truffles & Mocha- they cannot ever be replaced but if your questioning ever opening your heart again to a beloved fur baby after losing one I’m telling you YES! The absolute best decision EVER!

Lastly, this is actually really cool- it’s the 25th anniversary of the 1991 Halloween snowstorm here in Minnesota- holy cats did we get a lot of snow! Funny thing, I was so busy with sewing the kids costumes that I had absolutely NO IDEA we were expecting snow haha! Here’s a few pictures from that day and an article about the epic snowstorm.






“Out of the top 5 weather events of the 20th century, October 31st, 1991 ranked 3rd. Across much of Eastern Minnesota, trick-or-treaters donned snowmobile suits as the snow began to fall during the afternoon. This marked the beginning of a major storm that pounded Minnesota over a 3 day period. The storm dropped 28.4 inches of snow on the Twin Cities, setting a single storm record for the metro area. Duluth received 36.9, the largest single storm total in Minnesota history.”


It will be a balmy 60 degree’s this Monday- no snow! ….Well, it is Minnesota…..BAHAHAHA! Happy Halloween from our family to yours-have fun and be safe!!!

And most of all – THANK YOU for following me, I’m so excited for this next year!!  Love & God bless, Teri ❤
