Halloween

It's been nice to have a fall season. Theo ate an apple like this, entirely unprompted. Lucy wanted to do the same, but she literally has no front teeth and can't do it.
I made an apple pie that looked like this. I was kind of proud, especially of the drizzled caramel.


Lucy wanted Theo to be Mr Tumnus, from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I made him some horns by gluing kisses onto a headband.
Of course, he ate them. I was lamenting this to a friend, who responded by saying "oh, do you want to borrow my goat hat?"

Yes. Yes I do want to borrow your goat hat.
Queen Lucy and lovable sidekick Tumnus. They were cute.

This is Lucy looking tough and Theo making his 'cute face' for the camera.








videoThis is Theo trying to ride and look cute at the same time.
videoNot sure why I continue to think i can film this way. Sorry.

You know Chris is out of town when...

- I had to jump up and knock the cereal box down with a spatula from the top shelf of the cupboard this morning. How does he reach all the way up there?

- Beth has to come online at 2:30am EST to tell me to go to bed. "Now."

- I checked to see if maybe, just maybe, Eclipse had somehow been released on DVD without me hearing about it.

- Instead of only being 70% sure, I'm now 95% sure I'm the only one feeding the bunny.

- both of the kids join me in bed at 4am and there's plenty of room for everyone.

- we eat brownies, corn and scrambled eggs for dinner

logic at it's finest.


me- jackson, where do you go potty?
jax- in the toilet AND outside.
me- well, it is ok to go outside as long as you are away from the house and no one is around to see you naked.
jax- yep! i go away from the house AAAND when i pull down my pants to pee, the people all run away screaming 'aawww jackson!!' and when they are gone, THEN i go, so they no see me!
