Happy Halloween 2013

Steven the Dragon.....and the only picture we got of him wearing the was off mere seconds after the picture was taken....not a fan of dressing up on Halloween....didn't even wear it trick-or-treating....actually, he never even got out of the stroller.....just along for the ride!

Mario and Princess Peach

Ellie...a bit more smiley on her own

Tanner....a bit embarrassed because his friends were just behind me watching us and waiting for the bus

Basketballer and Angel...Meagan and their choice of costume ;)

it takes talent

All accomplished in just over an hour.  My my, someone was on a mission this morning. 

But honestly.....what's not to love about this sweet boy.  Regardless of the messes he makes.

still got it

From 6 weeks old to 14 months......he's still got that look.  I love it!  It makes me laugh every time I see him with that expression.

Steven sat and watched the dust motes this morning while I was cleaning the room.  He was so mesmorized and kept reaching his hands out to grab them.  "Firsts" are so much fun!

our ups man

Our UPS delivery guy is super nice. Every time he brings a package he always has a smile on his face and something nice to say. Really nice guy. I've kept him pretty busy this past week - online shopping rocks!!! He's been here multiple times this week. The only thing is, every time he comes, I've been upstairs feeding Steven and getting him down for a nap. He usually just puts our packages on our front step, knocks on the door, and walks away. But Ellie has been in the front room each time he's come, so she's fast to get the door. Being the nice guy that he is, since the door is open, he puts the packages inside. After 3 times doing this, and Ellie opening the door, I've been thinking that he probably thinks Ellie is some latch-key 4 year old kid, with no parents about. After all, the Christmas bins of decorations have been stacked up inside the front room since Sunday night when we got them out and my table has yet to get breakfast dishes cleared off before lunch.....or before the kids get home every day this week. Its been a crazy week folks. So today, I vowed to be present and accounted for.... casually putting up the Christmas decorations when he came (usually he shows up right after lunch). I scrubbed bathrooms all morning and then jumped in the shower at 10:30. I had just gotten out when I heard a knock, knock. Blast! He came early! Obviously I couldn't run down and thank him for delivering my stuff, so I opted for a nice, "Thanks!" yelled from the hallway. Sheesh. Maybe next week I'll be presentable?
