Hmmmm look who was playing with Mommy's camera....
I voted early and only had to wait 30 minutes. Next election I am just going to request and absentee ballot. I like the idea of voting from the comfort of my couch:) I spoke to a lady at the grocery store who waited four hours!
Sophie was a cute little frog for Halloween. Her tutu has little lily pads on it...too cute! We went to our neighbors and to Sophie's Godparents for free candy. The big kids are quite the social butterflies. Hannah had a cute costume but was out the door before I could even get a picture. She had a costume party to go to with the "girls". Ben and his friend David "walked around", no trick or treating for those two cool eight graders.
I think there should be rules for trick or treating. Seriously. Sophie's Godparents live in a "popular" trick or treating neighborhood. They typically give out 1000 pieces of candy!!! We sat out on the porch with them and I can't even tell you how many people came to get candy with INFANTS in their arms! Granted the baby was dressed up, but c'mon, you take the baby to see grandma not trick or treating!
Hannah asked for a bedroom set for Christmas and for her birthday...a practical but costly request. I have been checking out Craigslist. Can I tell you how much I love some craigslist! I found a set that Hannah and I both like and the cost is reasonable ( I emailed my aunt the details, she works in the furniture business). Today I got rid of an old dresser and I plan on cleaning out the guest room furniture soon! I found Sophie a big girl bed with a trundle....nice piece of furniture for a fraction of what I would have to pay for new...and well it is "new to me"! It looks like some musical bedrooms here along with having to paint Ben and Hannah's new rooms. *sigh* I hate painting!
I know that I had more to share with you guys....but I can't for the life of me remember. The extra hour really didn't help me out much. Well I was able to get more laundry done with that extra hour...*snort*
