The freaks come out at night

I did it. I did it alone. And I survived. i took the 3 youngest to two...yes count them two Halloween stores to get their costumes. There were NO tears...even when the costume Peyton wasn't was sold out. There was no arguing. No spitting, hitting or biting. A stranger complimented me on how well behaved my children were (ok they were good but not that good..this chick needs to get out more). It was a success. Ok..screw that it was a MIRACLE!

I did not find Ava a costume....seeing as at 20 months I really didn't want her being mistaken for a prostitute and apparently slutty little girl costumes are all the rage. I will be slaving over her costume this weekend.

Peyton and Cade each picked their own. I can not tell you what though because I would rather dazzle you with pics of them in all their glory later. You have been warned.

So this weekend we will be carving pumpkins, finishing up some ghosting and busting out the sewing machine.

I have a new sitter watching the kids for a few hours so I can get out with Lynne in the am for some shopping and lunch. PRAY FOR HER!!!!

Blog at ya later.


  1. Glad to hear it went well.

    Lynne from CLM? Is she okay?

  2. glad your costume shopping was a success. know what you mean about the little girl ones. congrats. for standing your ground!!! hope you have a good time with shopping and lunch.

  3. Glad that is was a good trip!

  4. What is it with the uber-slutty little girl costumes anyway? When my husband was home from Afghanistan on emergency leave last month, we went to try to pick out a costume for Hazel. And, we couldn't believe what we were seeing! It's all so skanky! Fortunately, we managed to find a cute non-slutty lady bug costume in the Lilian Vernon catalog. Can't wait to see pictures of your little ones in their costumes!

  5. I am sure the sitter will do just fine-just hide the duct tape & rope from the kids-HA!
    Hope you have a great time!

  6. Well, for 1, I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the hooker halloween costumes for little girls! I had the worst time EVER trying to find Jessa a costume!

    Second of all.... I read ahead to your newer posts and of the crappy sitter. My little sister is 17 and very responsible, she watches my kids for me when I need her, and she used to babysit for my friend's 3 kids. If you want her number, let me know! lol


Play nice in the sand box or I'll smack you in the face with a shovel.
