halloween spirit

nothing says halloween like a black tongue....

...and decorating cut out sugar cookies shaped as pumpkins, ghosts and scary cats.

the masterpieces.

now, i have to go force myself to drink my weight in water so i can have an ultrasound that will
reveal the gender of my mystery baby growing in my belly :)
can't wait. to find out the sex that is, not to drink a gallon of water.

then, we are off to disneyland for yet another magical adventure.
this time, the kids get to parade through the streets of disneyland in their costumes
while collecting candy from costumed characters.
lets just say that the kids are about to explode with excitement.
they have been walking around the house wearing their mickey mouse ears
for the past couple of days now.
i think they are ready to gooooooo.
see ya all laters.

october showers

it's always a joyous time when in rains here in the desert.
we have had such horrible record breaking heat that i had pretty much lost all hope of ever getting out of the one hundred degrees.
lately, i have been yearning to live somewhere where they have 4 seasons.
what would that be like?
but, i have to say, there is nothing like rain and thunderstorms after a five month summer to help cool things down.
jack could hardly contain himself when he got home from school yesterday.
first thing he did was he tore off his shoes and socks and headed outside to run through the rain and puddles.
ava thought she would join him as well.
and, let me tell you, dancing in rain puddles is way more fun in a sequined flapper dress.

jack and ava showing off the raindrops on their clothes.

we have been so lucky to have rain the last 3 out of 4 days.
i just hope it sticks around for a little while longer.
highs in the 80's is my kind of weather :)

*ava and i also heard one of the longest and loudest claps of thunder known to man.
it was loud.
it like shook the whole house.
sooo octoberish.
