was today really halloween?

Oops. Today was most definitely Halloween -- I have a young child -- and we didn't do anything for the holiday. Do I get the "Bad Mommy" award for this one? The thing is, Faustino is on call, and when he is on call on a Saturday, that means its just me and Ethan. Weekends are for families... and not for having "play dates" with our kiddo/mom friend combinations... so... since he doesn't know what Halloween is... and he wasn't begging to go trick-or-treating... and we don't live in the neighborhoods that have the "closed trick-or-treating thing" {which although sounds, maybe, a wee bit elitist, I wouldn't really take him in my neighborhood...especially by myself!} we didn't even don the cowboy costume. {boo, hiss, Mommy is no fun} Instead we had pizza at Grammy's house. Ethan did enjoy the delivery man dressed as a pirate.

I will stage some "Halloween Costume Photos" in the morning. I know, I am pathetic.

But, here are the photos from TCU Music costume day:

I think he wants her fish. In fact, if I remember right, he ended up trying to steal her fishing pole.

One more Halloween slacker notch in my belt: we didn't even carve a pumpkin.

On the flip side, I managed to drag Ethan to both JoAnn and Hobby Lobby in the quest for cute fabric... and even out to the House of Blades to have my sewing scissors sharpened. Still no luck on the fabric... really worried I will have to just buy something off the internet or settle for something I don't love...

First Post

So... I have been putting this blog thing off for awhile. I really should have started it before Ethan was born... or at least while he was a little baby. But I didn't. And so I have to go back and dig up all the scraps of paper I kept to complete his baby book... if only I had blogged those tidbits of information.

So now I thought, before the next little baby arrives, I really should do this blogging thing. And really, it is so much easier to share photos this way... I think I spent an hour trying to compress and send Jenn photos of pumpkins and my bathroom... surely a blog post would have been faster. And... now with the sewing machine... I have crafty projects to share. Not that anyone will really read this or care!

Hmmm... now to put photos in a post... well I will at least attempt it... hmm.. {Lindsey, this is for you!} Whoa! Photos are easy... who knew?

This is my crafty pumpkin... I got the idea from here

And then this is my new pet project that I will begin after I figure out what fabrics to use... I want to love the fabric... and I don't want it to look too spring-y. {or beach-y for that matter}

This is enough random-ness for one evening... I still have to tidy the kitchen. Will post Halloween pictures this weekend... Ethan is a cowboy. Not too imaginative, but I didn't hear any begging and pleading to free him from the costume like I did when I attempted Ethan the Dragon and Ethan the Dino... both were disasters. And Faustino wanted him to be a Mummy... but somehow sewing a costume for a anti-costume child began to sound more and more unappealing. Faustino thinks that Halloween costumes should be ghoulish. Well... this year, we didn't go ghoulish. There is always next year...
