We <3 Halloween!

Do y'all have a Halloween Express where you live? Well, if you do, how sorry do you feel for the poor guy that has to stand at the intersection wearing an 8-foot inflatable Frankenstein costume? Do you think when they hired him that was in the job description? I just wish they'd at least hired someone with a little more personality to entertain me while I'm waiting for the light to change. If I were going to spend four hours publicly humiliating myself, I might make things a little more interesting by, say, walking like an Egyptian or doing toe-touches or something. Nope, our local blow-up Frankenstein just stands there. Like a bump on a log, totally uninspiring people from venturing into the KMart parking lot to check out the overpriced Halloween costumes.

Baby B is going to be a The Great Pumpkin. He got an adorable costume from my Aunt Laurie before he was even born. Halloween is B's favorite holiday, so I try to make an effort to get into the spirit with him (Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I have no trouble going all out for it) . The other night we spent a good half hour you-tubing various videos reminiscent of our childhood. B's favorite was the Disney short film featuring Huey, Duey, and Luey. Do you remember it?

Here it is if you want to watch it. It's a pure classic. One of the best in my opinion.

Let me also say that I can't believe we're already talking Halloween. This time last year we were just about to get pregnant with Baby B. Crazy, huh? My what a difference a year makes...

In other news, I ordered Baby B's birth announcements! They should be here in the next two days. If I like you, maybe you'll get one ;)
PS. This is where we spent the weekend - at my mom and dad's Lake Home in Cumberland. Love it!

The Great Pumpkin...how cute is that for a halloween costume! Austin is going to be a triceratops, Kimberly is Little Bo Peep - she keeps saying "Little BO Peep has lost her dinosaur!" referring to Austin since he couldn't be a sheep.

Abby - That is such a great picture of you and Baby B! Such a rarity for a mom and baby to look good for a camera at the same time!! ;)
