Weekend Highlights

We carved our pumpkin.  B wants me to assure you that I did as little as possible when it came to this task, as I don't enjoy the pumpkin goop or mess resulting from scooping out the innards of a gourd.  I do, however, love salted pumpkin seeds, so I did help with that.  B is our resident pumpkin carving connoisseur.

Not only am I that mommy that doesn't know her own kid is having a Halloween party at school, but I'm also that mommy that gives her kid an ink pen while she checks out at the grocery store.  It wasn't until the cashier started laughing and shaking her head that I realized Picasso was constructing a masterpiece ON HIS FACE while I checked out.  It went clear back to his hairline.

B and I went as nerds to a Halloween party.  I'll go ahead and type what many of my close friends are thinking: they didin't have to try hard, did they?  Bwah ha ha.

Trick-or-Treat 2010 was a success.  We made it one house further than we did last year before Becks was refusing to cooperate and started the dinosaur whine.  Maybe we'll make it the whole block next year. 

Pictured below is Ariel, Greg the Yellow Wiggle, and Sebastian.  They were precious. 

We had a time playing on the Little Tikes roller coaster that my parents put out for the grandchildren.  If you don't have one of these, I would highly recommend it.  Becks thinks it's the greatest toy ever invented.  So do I.

I got my hair did.  I attempted many {creepy} self-photos but none were worthy of saving and posting.  They looked like awkward Myspace photos.  I don't look like Hollie, but I'm well on my way back to my natural color!  I love it!  The best evidence is in the pics below.  And if anyone still calls it blonde, I'm not going to be your friend anymore. 

I am off school today and tomorrow and I cannot even begin to tell you the effect it is having on my well-being.  I'm a much more pleasant person without the stress of standardized testing chewing off my head every day.  Further, I'm able to catch up on household chores {like laundry! oh boy!} and a clean house is always very cleansing. 

I'm going to have to stop.  As much as I'd love to make it to {ten}, I have about 14 things I need to do between now and the end of naptime.  Happy November, friends!

The hair is rockin' and I can soooo relate to the pen on the head. I am convinced we are living parallel lives:).
