And this morning my nephew and I woke up early to see the parade in person. For those of you not familiar, it is very difficult to find a good spot to watch the parade. It is always super crowded. But...Isaac's charm got us up to the very front. Here's what we saw...

While in Ohio this week, Heath and I visited Falling Water. It's really beautiful, however we were surprised with the apricot color. I remember seeing pictures of it looking white...
I love that they could just open the windows and listen to the waterfall. Good sleeping noise.

We were so very lucky this week. We didn't lose power or water, and our neighborhood was the least touched by the storm.
This guy was ready for the storm.
The wind was really strong...
And the waves on the Hudson were quite large.
Here we are with our cousin from France...they were in town for the week :) They were serious troopers - never complaining that half of Manhattan was shut down or that public transportation wasn't working.
The trees took the brunt of the damage.
Some uprooted completely.
And the darkness...here's where it started/stopped on 29th Street.
This picture is from A Cup of Jo - isn't it amazing?
We had some friends over this weekend for Halloween...the theme was Moonrise Kingdom.
Heath and I went as Suzy Bishop and Sam Shakusky.
Our French cousins went as...surprise...French!
And Jay and Jen came all the way from Columbus as Snow White + the Huntsman. (I don't have pictures of our other guests unfortunately).
Then we headed to Cielo, which was way too crowded and foggy (smoke machine).
It was a great night before the storm hit...more on that soon!
