Halloween and such


Let me just start by saying, Jake is so excited he could pee himself. Honestly, he actually has once or twice. We're still having accidents when we get excited, you see... Anyway, he's climbing the walls, waiting, anticipating and counting down the seconds until that fantastic holiday where everyone (who's fun) plays dress up and goes parading around the neighborhood begging for candy. It just doesn't get much better than that... Except for Christmas which he is already climbing the walls, waiting, anticipating etc. etc. for. Chloe is still just like "WTF?", but is happy to devour sweets if she has too. She'll even wear a silly hat if that helps get her a cupcake.

Oh, and yeah, we're in our house and down to just one box left to unpack. I fully anticipate staring at said box in about 9 months, which is sitting dead center on the floor in my office, wondering what's in it. But hey, we're pretty settled and are even hosting a pre trick or treat party tomorrow just to prove it. aaaaaaack!

By the way, in case you're wondering why Chloe is holding a graham cracker instead of a broom, Mama wanted a picture and a graham cracker was the only way to get it. That, and I had to take it away because she was whacking her brother with it.

We are THAT family



Yes, you're probably wondering what the first thing we unpacked was... surprisingly, it wasn't halloween decorations. Regardless, I got them up because I'm just that CRAZY. Priorities people, priorities. Who needs to know where the hell the cups are... we've got pumpkins! Yay pumpkins!

So, this is our new home and we're pretty happy with it. It feels like home.
