Happy Halloween!

We had THE Best Halloween Ev-er!
After Friday's Fall Festival at daycare, Cade was ready to rock his lion costume again. This time the whole family joined in. I was Dorothy, Nick was the Scarecrow, Izzy was Toto, and Cade was the Friendly Lion. (No coward here!) Our parents came over for pizza and to hang out. Special kudos to Izzy for hopping right in the basket and sitting perfectly for almost a whole ten minutes! We think she was excited to be a part of the action, and maybe after seeing Cade in his infant carrier she was glad to finally get a special basket ot be carried in. She's the best dog! Anyways, here are some pics from the night!

After the trick or treaters left (we had our standard 25 kids come---best costume of the night was the 3 year old little penguin, best group of the night were the kids who said "Trick or Treat! Happy Halloween! Merry Christmas! Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Hannukah!" They left quickly after Nick and I told them "Happy Martin Luther King Day! Happy Veteran's Day!" That sufficiently stumped them and they took their 3 candy bars each and left. Not so clever now, Mr. Incredible, eh?!

Grandma Lolli was so excited to babysit, so we packed him an overnight bag in case we got brave enough to leave him the whole night (and by brave we are referring to us missing hims!) and dropped him off. SOMEONE never got directions to his friend's house for the party, so we headed out for a date night instead. Um, crazy awkwardness when we walk into the bar and rollerboy skates up to us, pelvis pushed out and welcomes us in. Create this visual image fellow bloggies: Man, 6 ft tall (in rollerblades), 195 lbs, full white spandex bodysuit with sequins on chest, now refresh the image of the white spandex to include nearly sheer. Yep, we were able to verify that he was only wearing a jockstrap under that getup. And thus, the textbook definition of TMI.

We had a blast just being the 2 of us and can't believe we spent our first full night together just us, all night. We did a good job of not talking about Cade (okay, whatev, besides the obligatory "Damn we made a good baby" conversation that we have about once a week. If you're blessed with a good baby, you've got to acknowledge it. They tell you this rule in the parenting books. Be greatful.)

Anyways, we made it through the night at home without him. I woke up from 3:30-5:30 and just couldn't completely sleep. Finally at 7:00 I considered that sleeping in. With the time change it was "really 8:00" in my book, so I wanted to get the man. He had a fun night with Lolli and we had coffee and visited a little and now we're all back at home. The guys are in bed, Izzy and I are blogging then off to take a nap while we can! Hope everyone had a great Halloween! We have candy if you want to come trick or treat.
loves, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion & Toto

  1. What???? No remarks about pumpkin stems?? And after I spent time in the patch looking for the pumpkins with the very best ones. For shame.

    Y'all did make the best little Oz family out there, however.
