Bama and Emmy, those are so funny. It reminded me of how dh and I (pre-kid) spent some time (not entirely sober) dressing our own cats in little tiny Mexican sombreros

My kids have already rec'd candy from the YMCA and the supermarket today -- I've pretty much thrown my hands up and decided that they'll just be eating crap all day. And Danny isn't taking a nap either ....

Speaking of un-sober cat memories, my old roommate and I got into the wine pretty good one night and decided (at 4 am) to take the cats for a walk, which we'd never done before even sober. We ended up trying for an hour to get the leashes on, gave up and went to bed.

So I was wrong about Hallowe'en being on the 27th. It's actually today. Happy Hallowe'en everybody!

another "lets dress up the cats while drunk" couple over here

....someone stop me, i've eaten an ENTIRE bag of reesee cups. :

sara-i'm with bama, our evaluator said that 3-6words is average, the important part is that she knows the meanings of sooo many otheres. ds pretty much understands everything we ask him but he can only verbalize 2 words. he can sign several more though. we're pretty sure he can say more things it's just that we can't understand them

I'm a little Scrooge-like re: Halloween, but dh loves it (thank goodness!) so he is downstairs merrily handing out treats while I sulk upstairs with smy beer and my internet. Sometimes I feel like such a malcontent!

I did take the kids out, though, and that was fun.

Great pics, Mcs! I forget how suburban Staten Island is. Is that bike contraption safer than the usual one you see on the backs of bikes? Dh bought himself a bike this summer and rode it exactly twice -- I'm encouraging him to get a bike seat and take Danny out on it. That cat! Reminds me of my old fat cat, Chunk.

I did send in a photo of Danny for the Baby Gap contest (of course!). I chose this one as being the most Gap-Like:

Are any of you old enough to remember those big-eye kid pictures that used to be popular? Now they are kitsch, but people used to have them in their homes for real.

we went trick or treating at the mall tonight. ds had lots of fun...and ate several pieces of candy :

Anne..do I spy pop ice popsicles on top of the fridge???

and wow anne..i've never seen your dh before!
anabellee's Avatar anabellee 02:26 AM 11-01-2006
oh yes, we have ice pops! ds loved them when he was teething. i loved the lime ones when i was puking

and yeah, dh has a monster goatee. it's to make up for the lack of hair on his head:

anne- spud was cute as yoda, but i thought for sure that he would be a potato!

melissa- that is a cute photo! i hope he gets it! about the bike- i don't have any evidence that it is safer, but it just seems like it. plus, i think it would be more fun for them to sit in the front. i give eisa her little "snack pack" (fanny pack) full of cherios and she just snacks and looks around and really likes it. it is getting too chilly already though- the wind is a little much for her.
so, we might be in cleveland on our way to or from my parents for thanksgiving. my friend is still there taking care of his dad and he asked us to come (getting pretty lonley) it will be his 60th b-day so i really think we will try.

emmy- i want to see the punk pants!

here are our halloween photos-

anne - i hope you don't take this the wrong way, but i think your dh is sorta sexy in an anton lavey sort of way. oh, and you're sexy too! I love your hair.

anyway... here's istra on halloween! I was surprised that she actually kept her hat on! She's supposed to be an elf, just in case that is not apparent.

I have eaten almost all her halloween candy already. Ugh. I feel so fat. I definately am getting a baby belly... but it is just making me look thick and roundish. I don't like this stage of pregnancy! and like bama, my face gets all fat too... sigh.

Anyway... must go work on school stuff. Keep those halloween pictures coming please! Loved spud's yoda and eisa's witch... cute!
hattoo's Avatar hattoo 03:55 PM 11-01-2006
Love all the Hallowe'en (and Gap audition) photos! Hope everyone's not too 'hopped up' on their kid's candy! I definitely am. I am rekindling my old romance with Glosette Raisins.

Here's our little ladybug:

I love all of the costumes! I will have to get ours down loaded tonight. The girls had fun. DH took them Maddie and Ellysia out. Then they dropped Ellysia off and the two of them took off for more. Maddie's pumpkin basket was full! Claire and I had a good time answering the door and handing out treats. Ellysia took that over once she came back. It was quite cold out (in the upper 20's) so not as many kids were out this year. Then we took the kids over to my parents and over to DH's dad's. My parents had an apple specially wrapped up for Claire since she can't have any of the candy.

I'm going to be off work a bit early today. My dad had an elevated PSA test and on the biopsy they found "something". He's suppose to bring family members in with him today to talk about "it". So I'm going with my mom. I'm the calm one, but it's not my body and I guess I need something to actually panic about rather than an unknown.

We have treats at work and someone brought cheez its in a box that is suppose to contain doggie treats. Their idea of "trick-or-treat".

i just realized that maybe this part of my message didn't sound very nice. bama, i just remembered that you mentioned your face getting fat when you're pregnant... i didn't mean to say that you're fat or anything! ahh! :

No cute Halloween pics from us; we stayed home to hand out candy and DS is still too small for the cow costume that was handed down to us. We just sat around eating cheerios waiting for the doorbell to ring again. He seemed to think it was quite funny that I was giving things to people so they wouldn't come in... laughed every time I closed the door! DH had to work late so at one point I put had to put a sign up that said "changing diaper, back in 5 mins" but the only person who saw it was DH when he walked in about 30 seconds after I hung it. I've made him promise that he will be home to help next year when there are 2 little ones.

Oh, and my way to stay out of the Halloween candy is to buy a 1/2 pound box of See's raspberry creams. Makes the store candy seem too sad to eat. I even have 1 raspberry left!

You know, I saw a product like your seat and it had an optional wind screen. Seemed silly at the time, but I guess I can see why it makes sense. I've looked at the 2 websites I thought I saw it on and found nothing, so who knows where that was. Poo.

I get so ROUND in the face when I'm pg! During that last trimester or so..And I normally have a really narrow face, so its really noticable.

LOVE the costumes and the adorable kiddos!!! They are all so cute. Mcs - the cat litter cake is hysterical. I saw a recipe for it somewhere, and I laughed but gagged a little, too. You look great in your witch costume, too!

Last night, it went down to -15 C (Sorry, don't know what that is in Fahrenheit but it's well below freezing). It was cold but that doesn't stop our kiddies! Most costumes are made big enough to fit snowsuits or lots of layers.

We were at our local Toy Lending Library during the day for crafts and hot dogs (blech). It's a nice, safe place for the kids to have fun. Sage and I go there for some kind of activity almost every morning. During the evening, we did 'lazy' trick-or-treating since Sage is coming down with a cold. We just drove to friend's houses and showed her off a bit. Then got home to warm up and get to bed!!

Love the bfing punk!! That should be the worldwide bfing symbol!!

MCS...when you're looking at the page, at the top left hand corner it says USER CP

that stands for User Control Panel.

click it, and then you have a b unch of options...click Edit Signature

then it will open up a box, you can put words , and smileys, etc in there, and then click PREVIEW SIGNATURE. If you like it, Click SAVE. If not, doodle with it and then save it.

Goodluck!

Don't worry, bama we've got a long way to go!! The coldest it gets is -45 but there's usually no wind when it's that cold so it's bearable.

I miss my old friends!
I just quickly glanced at the cute halloween costumes, and I'm shocked to see so many KIDS, and just where did all of our little babies go???

I was a disco/hippy lady, dh was (gasp) a firefighter, and Titus was Sherlock Holmes. Freakin cute, I promise, I just don't know how to use my sister's computer to share the pics. The local college (PLU) opened the dorms for indoor trick or treating and everybody fell in love with ds's costume.

This thread has been going for a long time and I just now found it!

I'm feeling so disconnected from you guys, but living communally with my family here has meant lots of personal interaction and not very much alone/computer time. It's been really, really healthy. And not in the "vitamins and spinach" way, it's been wonderful.

We've lowered our house price alot, but I'm fearing that we'll be still on the market over Christmas and end up moving back in anyways. Annoying!

I'm trying embrace this "hiatus" time and not keep feeling anxious for our lives to start back up again in our own house. Like those last few months of pregnancy when all I wanted to do was push fastforward instead of enjoying where I was at in life. I'm like that.

I'd like to promise that I'll be around more, but I don't know if that's really going to happen any time soon!

Oh, the good news is that about a week ago Titus ceased needing any sort of help at all to go to sleep, no company, no nursing, just plop him into his playpen with a kiss and say goodbye! How cool is that???

I once bought a book called 'Living in the Meantime'. I started reading it, made it about 3 pages in, then found out I was pregnant with Sage! I gave the book to goodwill and started reading pregnancy books instead.
