Sunday night we used some Halloween Mr. Potato Head pieces to make our own "Pumpkinstein". It was super easy, no mess, and a lot of fun. We all enjoyed the process and the final product is both silly and cute. We're hoping that it will also last longer than a carved pumpkin (which we also plan to do).

Marin's 11 months

I can't believe the next "chair" picture I'll be posting is on her 1st birthday. My baby is becoming a toddler right before my eyes! Thanks again "Miss" Sara for passing along another great outfit! She'll be wearing it from now until Halloween. The pumpkin lights up, which Kaden thinks is TOTALLY cool!

Breakfast with the Witches

Saturday we went with our neighbors to enjoy the annual Friendly Feast with Witches at our local Children's Museum. What a fun event! Kaden and I were able to go while Jason stayed with Marin. He got to wear his costume (well, one of them...he has several options for Halloween, but so far, this one is the front runner), eat breakfast (it was catered and really quite good...Kaden ate 6 sausage links! and a half of a chocolate muffin), get his face painted, see Ruditoonz in "concert" (it was actually a short, 20 minute show. He reminded me of Jim Gill . He sang and played his guitar, so Kaden was in heaven), and go through the haunted house during "friendly hours" (with the lights on and a staff member handing out goodies in each room). We left our house around 8:30am and didn't get home until close to noon. Whew, I was tired. Kaden loved that everyone said, "Hey, look, it's Buzz Lightyear" when they saw him and said his favorite part was the haunted house (he got stickers, tattoos, candy, and a florescent band-aide). It was a fun kick off to our Halloween festivities (and a good chance to get to dress up in his costume!).

Oh, and guess I should mention that there are no pictures with the witches because Kaden wouldn't take one with them. They were SO friendly and all had HOT pink hair. Even when his friend had his picture taken with 4 of them, Kaden didn't want to join him. So, no witch pictures. Maybe next year.

Go Buckeyes!

No, she is not wearing this outfit today. Yes, they are playing today. No, they are not playing well. Yes, she could make any team look good!

10 months

As promised, here they are (and even right-side-up!)...

Our computer recently got the swine flu...or something like that. We took it to the computer dr. and there it stayed for 2 WHOLE WEEKS! Unbelieveable. It was a hard two weeks for me as I learned how much time I spend communicating, browsing, and honestly, wasting time on the computer. I got lots of great things done around the house, was able to enjoy the kids more and even had some good days to play outside.

It's back. We're slowly getting all the applications and programs reloaded. I have a post in the works with Marin's 10 month picture, but, well, I can't edit it at this time, so she'd be sideways to you.

So, hopefully I'll be back soon with more stories and pictures. I am however, reevaluating how much time I'm on the computer, so my posts may not be as frequent.
