Happy Halloween!


hey, guys! happy halloween! i know what you are thinking... yes, i am pretty cute. (FYI - lately, every picture of me is taken in mommy's lap. that is because all i want to do is LOOK at the pictures. so, as soon as i see the camera, i make myself comfortable, and wait for the show to begin.) for tonight's celebration, i am TIGGER! i love to jump, and watch other people jump, so the outfit is rather appropriate.
in honor of the great pumpkin, we made cupcakes. i LOVE cupcakes, and mommy let me mix (after i got over my fear of the mixer) and even better, lick the spoon! i am still wondering why we had to bake those silly cakes, they were just fine from the bowl.
then, we carved pumpkins. daddy let me scoop out the insides, but it was pretty yucky, and i am not a big fan of yucky on my hands. i rather enjoy crunching on salted seeds, and watching the pumpkins glow. i am quick to show any guests "daddy's pumpkin" (not mommy's, just daddy's).
ohhh, but wait, there is still - all the candy. we have been sampling candy all week, so we can provide trick-or-treaters with the best selection. last night, mommy said "enough candy". i was not impressed with this new rule. i put forth my best argument...
hoping you get many more treats than tricks!

Official Take-over




So, it is official. I have taken over the house. Check out my new PLAYROOM!!! Mommy and Daddy spent most of last weekend painting (ok, so it was mainly Daddy, but not because Mommy didn't try. Her painting skills are not the best.) I love my new space, I don't have to pick it up every night, like I do the living room. Also, the black paint you see is really not paint - it is chalk board!! Yep, not only can I keep my toys all over the floor, but I can write on the walls! Now, if I could only get my purple head-band back...

back to school


Last weekend, I started school again. Andy thought it was very important to take my picture on the first day. I began a 2 year Masters program though the University of Saint Mary's. It is a weekend program, that meets 1 or 2 weekends a month. It is kind of difficult to transition from teacher back to student, and I know this will be a true test of my time management skills. I would like to give an official "THANK YOU" to my support staff. Andy for organizing his schedule to coordinate with my class, Grandma Rita and Papa for helping the first weekend, Grammy J and Grandpa for helping on future dates, Shannon for being the best back up ever, and Leom for helping me "reflect and process" each day.
