halloweenie 2011

 jigga what?
that's right. i am posting about Halloween ON Halloween.
i give you full permission to be impressed.
it's impressive.

this year's festivites were as usual, as smash hit and we are all happy and satisfied to see this holiday out the back door.
this 31st was a busy one. it started early and ended way too late. littered with zero naps.
however.. these toostie pies of mine truly do keep getting cuter.
sure... there is a lot more empty threats, and senseless arguing amongst us. but definitely more fun too.
what can i say? i'll keep em'.


preschool and halloween just mix.
they make sense.
this was my first official year as room mom as well.
t'was perhaps the last?
probably not... :(...

we all played the pirate role at our trunk-or-treat. have you seen Disney Jr. lately?
do you know jake and his crew?
well the Neverland pirates are a big deal at this house.
don't be hatin'.

numero 2.
she's not very cute. 
what can we say?
it was perfect weather for some trick-or-treat.
one would never guess snow is due tomorrow.
and if you've seen a cuter pirate crew lately.. let me know.
i will beg to differ.

so there it be.
let november come.
we're ready.

a little bit of blog

where to begin?
i am pretty much 10 minutes late in general. in life.
somewhere between August and now things have time warped as well as moved by at a snails pace.
it's really all one big oxymoron. 
i just feel explaining would be dull.

BUT... good news,
i'm still pregnant :)
things are looking good and if luck finds me right we may just be able to find out what nugbum's gender is a couple of weeks.
woot, woot hoorah!

halloween has been in full action alllll fall long. my girls eat, sleep, pray, love this holiday. 
they actually can't really decide if they love it or hate it... but they still feel they should
participate fully until the final verdict is in.
i had a mother moment of the year last night and let them watch
"Thriller" .  i just have good memories concerning that really.
however... turns out it is indeed truly down right frightening. i mean for real.. it is.
they my be scarred for life.. and slept about 2 hours total last night.
good times.

dustin and i have been feeling quite festive ourselves and even threw an adult halloween murder mystery.
who do i think i am??
it really was quite fun... 
we have some pretty coolio neighbors and friends so duh... how could it go any other way?

i promise it felt much cooler being there. i need to remind myself to have someone else be
in charge of photo documenting when i am hosting as well.
these photos are so lame.

you'll get the gist of it.
