Halloween (EARLY) 2011

Yes, I know it's not YET Halloween...but we already got dressed up once and took pictures - so I'm being proactive and blogging them NOW before it becomes Easter and I realize I never shared these. :) (See Aunties S, J & L - I am not ALWAYS late!!)

I had every intention of making our costumes this year. In fact, we were ALL going to be "angry birds" - biggest to smallest starting with dad and ending with Olive...but that idea tanked early on because when do I have time to make five costumes?!? :) (Even if they were going to be big t-shirts with a shape and a face on them.) Then I was going to make the kids' costumes - pirate, unicorn and "who knows" what Olive wanted to be. But that was thrown by the wayside when I found clearanced costumes at Gymboree for $10 bucks for the girls. Then it was left to me to CONVINCE Ella she wanted to be "whatever this was"....and I have NO idea what she was. But it was cute and suited her. :) Because truth be told, we have no idea who Ella is! It changes moment by moment...

Olive was easy - tell her she's some sort of princess (even though she was a peacock, sort of) and she's happy. Micah was harder. I didn't WANT to make a pirate costume. I didn't have to make the others - so I was getting lazier by the minute and about to offer him candy or something to just be something easy he already had in the dress-up box. (Yes, we have a dress-up box for the kids - it's AWESOME so no judging!) He decided yesterday to be a knight (he was a knight at 3 so yes, you've seen this costume before but it still fit!!) and I told him he couldn't change his mind anymore. (go me!) So that took care of that!!

I assume we'll dress up tomorrow as well - but the highlight of October 31 around here is not actually Halloween - it's the fact that the NEXT day, November 1, is Ella's birthday. :) And that is a day that she thinks about every SINGLE day of the year, wondering how far away it is, planning far in advance....for a party that never actually seems to happen as planned. ;)

Thus, there are many broad options for getting to know various kinds of news today and
that too through the use of various mediums. Both the content
and presentation of news are drastically different from what
it used to be. I want to mention a part of the Prime
Law (Twelve Visions Party) which is part of Neothink.
