Happy Halloween 2013

Happy Halloween! I LOVE Halloween! It’s just a fun holiday! Plus, if it’s not “your thing,” you don’t have to participate, there’s no real pressure. My favorite part is the costumes! Home made, store-bought; funny, silly, scary, cute: whatever, I love it! 

This is our first Halloween in our new house so I don’t know how many trick-or-treaters we’ll see. In our last place, the most we saw in any one year during our 4 years was 5 kids and the least we saw was 1… ugh last year was depressing…. I hope we get a ton at our new place, but I have low hopes. There are a few 12 year olds on the street but that’s it. Also, we’re at the top of a large hill. I don’t know how many kids want to burn a lot of calories just to get chocolate…. But here’s hoping!

My office invites all of the staff’s kids to come in and trick-or-treat a few days before Halloween. They also set up a conference room as a photography studio and they take pictures of all of the kids. Since Baby Girl can’t eat candy yet (and I doubt anyone is handing out oatmeal…), I was pumped about the pictures!

Baby Girl was a dancing monkey:

But she was super hot and uncomfortable, so most of her photo shoot looked like this:

I'm probably a bad parent, but I think this picture is hilarious! (it wasn't a fun moment, but the picture is funny!)

Her costume lasted about a minute and a half. 😦 We took it off and the receptionist was nice enough to take a few pictures of Baby Girl in her skeleton outfit (it glows in the dark!). Yeah, always have a back up plan!

The dancing monkey costume may not have made it, but I figured I keep the tutu anyway...

Saturday Morning Motivation – Christmas Style

My day will be consumed by wrapping gifts and baking. So here’s some motivation about wrapping:

What I'll be thinking about when I'm sick of sitting on the floor with paper, tape, and scissors

Not my family, but they bring a smile to your face, don't they?

 And, I feel guilty posting my Sunday Morning Snark on Christmas… so it’s a day early:
