Halloween Costume Test Run

A sneak peek.  Both kids’ Halloween costumes are now in da house, so they wanted to do a test run tonight. One of them (the child, not the costume) is going to be a bit of a challenge. I’ll let you guess who.

Show Me Your Bling

Someone swiped part of Nick’s costume.

The Silly Bandz Craze Continues

For a brief millisecond, it seemed the Silly Bandz craze had died down in our house. I was mistaken. Fervor aside, I do so love a trend where participation is only two or three dollars a package.

Maple Buttercream Sandwich Cookies

One batch of cookies took care of repaying a favor to a friend, a Disney article on Fall recipes, and a donation to the Mom’s Club table of baked goods at the farmers’ market today. So far I’ve only had one cookie. The rest of what’s left will be leaving the house tomorrow, because as tight as my resolve is, this is one thing that will break it.

Scaring Away the Patients

I saw this on Friday and went back to get a picture today. Gotta love a dental practice with a sense of humor. Has to be one of the creepiest Halloween displays I’ve seen so far. Sure made me stop in my tracks.

Oh the trauma

She is sweet as apple pie, but try to tell her what she should wear to school, and this is the result. She DID NOT want to wear a dress. I, however, think that I have a few more months of control over what goes on that little body. This time I didn’t give in.

Fish Fillets for Fish Tacos

Fish. It’s what’s for dinner.

Naughty Girl

Who knew that a basket of clean laundry is really an amusement park ride in disguise? She’d climb in and her brother would drag her around the kitchen, asking for her ticket every now and then. I kept telling her to get out because she was wrinkling the clothes. You can tell what she thought of that.

Oh, man. She is too cute! Why does it seem to me that the 2nd kid is always the toughie?? They are fun and so full of love, though. Love that scary dentist. :)

Well at least the laundry basket is cheaper than going to Six Flags or Busch Gardens! That is one seriously pink wig you got Maddie, Cate. I bet they are going to look adorable in their costumes!

You are so mean – making that sweetie cry! It only gets worse with clothes too! Can public school please go to uniforms?!

Those cookies look interesting – recipe?

I needed to get treats out of my house too. Made on Friday – 40 Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes w/Oreo Cream Icing. 2 batches of Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles, and Bar Sugar Cookies (they are still around).

Pamela – exactly! She is way more feisty than Nick ever was. Maybe they feel like they have to keep up? And then probably the fact that she’s trying to keep up with a boy on top of that doesn’t help matters…

Kris – cookies are crazy good. One of my favorites so rarely make them. Will send over recipe. The Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles sound delish!

Joanne – This is very true, much cheaper than Six Flags. She’s going as Strawberry Shortcake. I figure this is the last year that I can control the costume choice, and even now, barely so.

LOL… Up until I was in high school, I always wore shorts under my dresses.

Cause I played football and soccer at break…..


Claire September 27, 2010 at 10:47 am

Looks like a fun, low key weekend! That picture of her having a fit is just pitiful…you can tell she is really trying to pull all the strings she has!!!

I’m droooling over the cookies. And I totally feel your pain on the getting dressed thing. Paige really likes … bright, patterned outfits. Read: Mismatched clothes all the time. SIgh.
