Slacker checking in....

Yikes, it's been almost a week since i've updated my blog, but in my defense, I had a very busy week ;-) Noah's school party was a lot of fun, and Halloween the next day was great, too! We ended up bringing our candy out to the middle of our cul-de-sac so all of us families could hang out and give out our candy together. It was nice, too, because me and Tony both got to take the kids trick or treating together for the first time ever since we always had someone manning the candy table. I knew Noah would enjoy trick or treating, but Chloe really enjoyed it, too! This is the first year she was old enough to really get it (at least a little bit), and by the end of the night, she was a pro at going up to people's doors.

The kids each had two costumes this year :-) My little witch on Halloween:
Buzz Lightyear before his school party:My fairy princess for our party:And our robot on Halloween:
Our Neighborhood party on Saturday night was an absolute blast!
The devil meets Frankenstein...
Being devilish...
Here I am with Snow White and a gynocologist...
And I even met Martha Stewart!
I spent the whole day leading up to the party preparing themed food, so between that and the actual partying, I was pretty exhausted yesterday. The kids seem pretty beat today, too, after such a full few days - Noah didn't take a nap today, and he fell asleep on the couch after dinner. Tony took him up to bed at 6:30, wow!

I've got a layout to post using the fabulous November kit from CMK. This kit is really gorgeous! These papers and embellies worked perfectly with the photos I took recently of Tony building the playhouse for Noah that my parents bought him.
I'm excited to watch everything unfold during election day tomorrow. I think that no matter who you are voting for, this has been such an exciting election, and I can't wait to see what happens! Happy voting, everyone!
