Day 4

Today started off with a chuckle when Claire said to me, and I quote, "Mom, I know you like caffeine but I like tootsie rolls." I think this was her way of getting me to let her eat tootsie rolls for breakfast. It worked. Then it was off to Nanny and Papa's for a day filled with Halloween fun! Cohen took his first tractor ride with Papa. He loved it! (So did Papa!)
Here is the recipe for our pumpkin brownies and then how they actually turned out! Please note that the recipe is worn due to the fact that my mom clipped it out of a magazine in 1983! It was a special memory from my childhood and I am so excited to start this tradition with my kids. Thanks Mom!

Here I am with Levi the Giraffe, Charlie Brown and Batman!

And so it begins

I have just experienced for the first time with Cohen what I will be dealing with forever. I wanted to get him a couple pairs of Pedipeds. They are soft-soled shoes that are great for new walkers and REALLY cute. I went to their website and was so excited to see all the different styles they offer. Then I realize that Cohen needs an Extra Large (24+months). That narrowed my search down to one pair. SO my decision was made for me! Here they are!

Day 3

Here is our little Supergirl at school today! They had their costume parade and Claire actually participated. She usually freezes up and wants to sit with Nanny but I think the promise of a slush from Sonic after school motivated her this morning. And yes, she is wearing pantyhose. I don't think there is anything more hilarious than a little girl in pantyhose!
She is really getting excited about tomorrow! I just have to finish Coco's costume! By the way, if you don't understand my titles for the past 2 blogs, you will in a few weeks!

Day 2

I am taking the bottle away this week. (FINALLY, I know) Nanny was watching the kids while I was at the dentist and put Coco down without his bottle. He played and jumped around in his bed for about 45 minutes and then got quiet. When I came home we went in and checked on him. This is what we found! Little mister was SUCKING HIS THUMB! He has never sucked his thumb or a binky for that matter. We'll see how this goes!
Claire last night at Nanny's. We painted pumpkins and made Halloween cards. We also had cranberry sprite which is what is all over her face!
My little man!
Here is Claire and her "Spooooooky" card she made for Daddy. Great face Claire!

Color my World

you are paleturquoise

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is low - You stay out of stressful situations and advise others to do the same. You may not be the go-to person when something really needs done, but you know never to blow things out of proportion.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.
the html color quiz
This is pretty much me! Check it out and see what color you are. I'm sitting at home this Sunday morning, instead of being at church where I'm supposed to be, with a REALLY congested baby boy and a little girlie who says she has a tummy ache. This is the ONLY reason I don't like this season. Time to catch up on laundry, housework and the shows I have recorded! Can't wait to see what happens on The Ghost Whisperer!!
