[Nov 15] Help Me Obi Wan Kenobi...You're My Only Hope

Guess what I got for my birthday this year?????? Staph infection. Yup. Right on the end of my nose. The 'ol rudolph schnoz for my b-day celebration. It's a good thing I'm allergic to antibiotics huh? KILL ME NOW! I've had her for about 10 days now and she is getting smaller. Hopefully she'll be gone by the 10th day of my meds or else Dan says "they're gonna have to snip the beak off." In other news, how do you think I look as a brunette? hehehe

[Oct 31] Choobs First Trick or Treat

Please watch how he knocks so quietly and then screams "trick or treat" not so quietly.

[Oct 31] Trick or Treat Jedi Style

Perhaps the cutest Darth Vader known to man was ready to Trick or Treat!
I was Princess Leia and Dan was Luke Skywalker. I think that if you dress up you are perfectly entitled to receive candy. Even if you are a fully grown adult accompanying your toddler. Dan thinks otherwise. I still made him take a bucket. And I think he was glad when he got home with it half full of sweets.
Grandma and Grandpa came along for the fun!
This is what our door looked like when we left to go trick or treating. It looked pretty much the same when we returned a few hours later. Have I mentioned that our neighbors are all old Russians?
Choob checking out his candy stash.
He refused to let go of his "glow light saber" and his "Halloween light saber" (which is in fact, a pencil with pumpkins on it) so it made carrying his bucket and trick or treating a little tricky.
The boys mid trick or treat
Choob loved this pumpkin. The ghost went up and down and everytime he "pumped up" Choob would say, "see it again...see it again." I wonder what the homeowners thought of us spending so much time on their driveway.

This boy loves puppies and he was ultra excited when he got to pet some that were dressed up.
This is what trick or treating looks like in our neighborhood.
Cool huh?! This guys house was the best and he handed out glow necklaces to all the kids. He had his entire garage set up with halloween stuff and even had the rocky horror picture show playing on a TV in his driveway.
Choob LOVES "scary guys". In the weeks preceding Halloween we would drive around the neighborhood to look at "scary guys" every SINGLE night. This scary guy actually removes his own head and then puts it back on again. Choob was in heaven.

Our night ended with the best treat of all: Choobie's first pee on the potty! He was so surprised when he got off the potty and saw his accomplishment he said, "pee pee is yellow!" It was a Happy Halloween for us indeed.

[Oct 30] Video 4

By the end of the night all fear was gone and Choobie was making slime towers. Happy Halloween!

Bravery increased as the night wore on.

[Oct 30] Video 2

Pumpkin gut removal is apparently really frightening and yucky if you've never seen it before. He finally convinced himself that "one at a time" seed removal was the best option. It looked to be a long night.

[Oct 30] Videos for the Grandparents

Pumpkin Carving began with a little drumming session and then an impromptu recitation of the first verse of Baa Baa Black Sheep in Choobie's ultra sonic voice. Upon discovering the contents of his beloved pumpkin, Choob determined "it's yucky...Dada do it."

[Oct 17] At the Mall With Momma

I got a coupon in the mail for the Children's Place so we packed up and went to the mall. We got there ONE HOUR early becuase I thought malls opened at 9am. Turns out they don't. We sure had fun killing time though.

Choobie found this seal statue and crawled up on it and began snuggling the momma and baby seal despite the fact that they were made out of cold concrete. Then he just sat on them for awhile.I always like to take him to the Pottery Barn Kids store so he can play with all the cool stuff. As we walked in Choob almost exploded with excitment when he saw this set up:Umm if I had about two thousand dollars this room would be Choobie's Christmas present. I mean, what two year old doesn't need a millenium falcom bedspread and retro star wars sheets? Plus if I were to transform Choobs room into this star wars paradise, then he would have to fight Dan for it. Perhaps then I could turn them against each other and destroy their evil plot to overthrow "the Mother" aka Me. Ahh, if only the lottery were easy to win....
