Kaylen's Halloween Party at School

Today Kaylen had a little party at school. They did a performance where they sang songs and did motions. I couldn't get there until a little later so I missed that part but Allen showed me a video they took. Let me just say that the year and a half of music classes has not paid off for my sweet darling. We have the child who is completely oblivious that she is supposed to be doing what everyone else is doing. She is the one playing with her nose and even eating boogers while everyone else does the motions. Don't think that those videos wont be some serious blackmail when she gets older! I keep trying to tell her not to pick her nose and she just wont listen to me. Ha! After the program she got to go trick-or-treating around the building. Then they had a little snack party. She is going to be on sugar overload and there will be lots more where that came from tonight! I will say that I didn't think that I would be able to go and my planning period just so happened to allow me to catch part of it and I am so thankful! She is so stinking cute! On a sad note... I have looked absolutely everywhere for those darn owl glasses she had and I just can't find them. She is still cute but I loved those glasses. I will update our evening next week! Happy Halloween!!!!

Advanced Art Halloween Party

Okay so I really did a bad job of getting pictures from the night but we did have a great time. We had pizza and snacks, a smoldering cauldron of fruit punch, and a pinata full of candy (that we forgot to bust open). We carved pumpkins... I don't have one picture of the awesome creations :( We had a pie eating contest... the only thing I got pics of... they were fishing for worms with their mouthes. It was a mess! Then we just played games and basketball. It was lots of fun!

Blissfully Unaware

No Picture Update

With a title like that... why even read the rest?!?!

I haven't been taking too many pictures lately but I have had a lot going on! This past weekend we went camping with the Carlisles and the Foxes. They both have campers and the Carlisles camper is big enough for us to join them. It was really a good time. Kaylen's favorite part was the playground! The playground! we have that in our backyard! That night she kept saying she was ready to go home... she didn't quite understand that we were sleeping there. She finally understood and had the best time. It was really cold in the morning and the kids played constantly the entire time we were there. We didn't stay Saturday night because we had to go to our church and then we had Disney on Ice...

This was quite the adventure. For me, it was rather enjoyable. For Allen... well, let me just tell you what happened. We get there right on time and our old neighbors Erin and Ben Boles were there with their kids right behind us. So it was great to see them. (For those of you who don't live around here... she is one of our local news anchors). Well, soon after the event began Kaylen had to go potty. Allen said he would take her and so he grabbed her bag and left. When he came back he wasn't happy at all. Apparently her diaper had shifted or something and she didn't make it to the bathroom. He said it was like someone poured a large glass of water (but substitute that with urine) all down his leg. He was absolutely drenched. So he comes back and sits down with her and she ended up falling asleep. He asked me why he paid so much money to sit in the VBC doused in pee while holding his sleeping child. I will say she did wake up and saw the rest of the show and loved it. She is still talking about it. I think her favorite part was Tinkerbell. She is really crazy about her right now.

The last thing I wanted to say is that I am having my Advanced Art Halloween Party at my house tomorrow. I hope it goes well. My cleaning ladies have bailed on me and it has been a month since they last came. I thought I had a lot to do even with them coming... now I am totally swamped! On top of that... Allen and I have to dress up for our youth group's Halloween gathering this Sunday.

What should I be? I want to be comfortable, I need an easy idea... I don't want to do any sewing... I want to be funny... help!!

Sponge Rollers

Did anyone else out there spend many a night sleeping in sponge rollers? I know I sure did! And boy do those things curl your hair! I have been wanting to curl Kaylen's hair and I finally found some rollers at Wal Mart the other day. Last night after Kaylen's bath we set to putting the rollers in her hair. Now I hate to admit this but as a kid we always put panties on our head to keep from getting our curlers snaged while we slept. They were always clean... so don't go too far with that concept in your mind. For Kaylen, I had plenty a pair that had never been used so she really lucked out. Anyway, this was the scene after I took them down this morning: I must say that she cried the first three times she looked at herself in the mirror. I couldn't stop laughing. Mean old Mommy!

I tried to fix it a bit but her bangs were straight... ugh! That wasn't exactly what I was looking for but I had to be at work in 10 minutes and I am not using a hot curling iron on my wiggley 2 year old! Next time I will have to be sure her bangs are in rollers too... and I think I will use a bigger roller. What do you think?!?!

The best part about my birthday this year

There is nothing more precious than your 2 year old singing happy birthday to you. This was the highlight of my day:

Here is another outtake that ended in a trip to change the ole diaper. It cracks me up how she hides her face. So funny!
