Anyone doing anything fun for Halloween? My two sons are going to be Batman & Robin and my DH is going to b Bane from the new Batman. I was going to be a pregnant more conservative cat-woman, but feel way too big to even attempt it. We're going to a Halloween party Sat so I've got to come up with something.
I'm feeling all nesty too...which I didn't ever really get with DD. I definitely think being on medication this time makes a difference with that. Plus we just got back from a 2 week trip and I'm totally frazzled. I need to feel in control. I completely forgot I had a midwife appt today until AFTER DH had already left for work with our car! Fortunately we're getting dumped on with snow, so they let me reschedule (the office is on some back country roads, and I wasn't sure my little Echo could get through without getting stuck).
DD is going as a T-Rex, and DP is going as Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park. I'm considering making a cardboard version of the jeeps from the movie. I don't really want to do all the work making one, but DP says he'll help...and it would be awesome. I haven't got any other costume plans, and I hate to miss out on a family theme. We've been doing theme costumes since DD's first Halloween.
Been trying to talk DH into selling our Echo and buying a used minivan. The idea of squeezing two carseats in that already cramped car...ugh. Plus, I like the idea of being able to climb into the van to buckle two kids in, instead of having to stand in the wind/snow/rain/etc. is really appealing. And with a van, no kid would have to climb out on the traffic side of the car (we park on street). And so on, and so on, and yeah...just lots of little things that add up. The mileage would be the downside for me. Obviously, even a van with good gas mileage will never be quite as good as a compact car.
