I think my favorite part of carving pumpkins is roasting the seeds. I gutted a few today for the kids to carve tonight, we'll do more another night. But the seeds I toasted are delish.

Joey was pretending that his bananas are phones. It was quite funny to watch him. He knew he was being silly, which made it even funnier. The bananas were mush after all the fun and games.

I am working on Caroline's costume. She was going to be this (it has been delivered and everything) - and has decided that she absolutely will not wear this to trick or treat, but will wear it around the house.

and of course, I am doing what I should have done in the first place, making it. A totally different costume.

And, totally off subject, do you remember the kids that got awards at the end of the year for never missing a day of school? Do you think they were the ones that were making the rest of us sick?

Cute Joey...maybe you should make banana bread with them! Sewing a costume...WOW!!! (the thought makes me tired.) Love your last question, of course they made us all sick...never thought about that, it made me laugh! What are you making Caroline? What are Joey and Eli going to be?

In your honor, I THREADED my machine last night and sewed a straight line to practice a bit. Haloween '09, here I come!

Yes, those kids that never miss are the ones who like my childhood, had mothers who had no options for daycare if their kids missed so they sent them to school missing limbs and barfing up things with legs.

We average a day out each a month, between Strep, broken bones and ear infections.

I had that same Ariel costume when I was in 3rd grade (except mine had seashells on the boobies and skin colored lycra instead of purple, holy risque!)- I LOVED it. I can't wait to see the home sewn one!!!
