These were all taken at our branch's "Trunk Or Treat". The weather was a little chili but atleast we weren't sweating like usual.As for my costume, I had already been a Nun to a party this year but I didn't think that would really fly at a church party so I decided to be Thomas the Train ... who doesn't love Thomas. The kids got a large amount of candy and the youth had a lot of fun booths including face painting. If it were up to me I'd be fine if that was their Halloween experience but we did go Trick-Or-Treating tonight and got another 10 lbs of candy. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all this candy! I wish there was something like a Coinstar machine where you put candy in it and it spits out money.

Pumpkin Carving

It's that time of the year when everyone is posting pumpkin carving, patches, festivals, etc. And soon every blog will have pictures of their children and pets in costumes. I will not be any different. Here is our Pumpkin Carving night. (Jackson is pretending he's a robot).
And the final outcome...Note: Cute Halloween costume pictures to be posted in a few days.

October = Noah's Ark Parade

Instead of doing a Fall Festival or Halloween Party at Jackson's school they do a Noah's Ark Parade and Lunch. Maybe they think the flood happened during the month of October. In any case, it was cute. It was something my three, almost four, year old did very well - walk up to the stage, pose, sing one song and walk off. Jackson did much better at being a bear than he did doing the primary program (don't ask). I was very proud.

I've been tagged!

My friend, Brie, tagged me. This is how it goes: I tell 7 weird/interesting things about myself and then tell 7 other people to do it and leave them a comment about it.

7 weird/interesting things about me:

1. I had my two front teeth knocked out when I was 13 but I still have my real teeth.

2. I've given Derek Jeter MY autograph. (that's totally weird, i know)
3. I wanted to be an optometrist when I was in high school.

4. I've never been out of the continental US but I have my passport and dream of going somewhere foreign even if its just Canada.

5. I'm in love with Target ... I love to go here especially at night without my kids.

6. I would like to be on the show, Survivor.7. I daydream about being in the Olympics, not going, but actually being an athlete in the Olympics. And I'm not that sweet at any sport which really makes that weird.

I tag Ali, Laura (H.), Carrie, Jenny, Anne, Karen, Lisa.

Thanks, Janine (older sis), for sending some much needed clothes for Lilly. I'm still in denial about how big she is, so its been hard to buy any clothes over size 12m and she's now going into 24m. Here is just one of the MANY adorable outfits we got from my sister.
Jackson has a ton of very "cool" clothes, but since he gets to pick out his clothes on non-school days this is a taste of what he usually pulls together.
I'm not sure where he gets his sense of style.

Football game

Last week, my friend, Tiffany, invited us out to the USF game. Surprise, surprise, they lost. They were sweet seats, though, and the guy next to us was HILARIOUS and bought us some drinks (waters) and peanuts ... I would've totally gone out with him except that he was 60. Worst part of the night: Some 18 year old threw up in her seat some2-3 rows down, so when the wind blew the right way (and it was a pretty windy night) we got to smell it ...delicious. I am 0-2 for sporting events now.
