A Dose of Cuteness











Jazz Number 6

Todd works a lot of Saturdays.  So, sometimes I take the kids to the craft store.  Especially when the weather is cold and wet and just begs us to stay indoors.  On this particular trip, we got a giant jar of miscellaneous crafts for $10.  It was full of beads and stickers and pom poms and popsicle sticks.  It was a dream come true.  It made one heck of a mess of my home (as my mother-in-law can attest), but it kept both kids entertained ALL. DAY. LONG.  That's hours of fun for $10.  One of Norrin's creations was "Jazz Number Six".  Hope you enjoy :).

Happy Halloween 2012

Despite a horrible storm that was followed up with cold weather, Halloween happened right on schedule.  The kids had school, their Halloween parade and their Halloween parties.  Todd was able to see their parade for the first time and it was as cute as always seeing all the little ones in costume.  As you can tell from the video, its still pretty windy and Ani Rose didn't care for her owl hat, but kept it on anyway :).  Norrin sang the five little pumpkins song around his scary vampire fangs, which was an impressive feat all on its own.  As for trick or treating, we gave it a try in our neighborhood this year and it was a great time.  The kids got an obscene amount of candy and Ani didn't want to speak to anyone, but anytime they put candy in her bucket, she would smash it down in there, nice and tight :).

A very cloudy sky for the parade.
