Happy Halloween

Well we had our first Halloween with baby girl.
She was Maggie Simpson, we dressed her in a blue sleeper, binky, and a blue bow. It was cute, while it lasted. (She made it all day without spitting up on it, then just as I took her to make the rounds she spit up).
I was Wednesday Addams,-Black shirt, black skirt, braided hair, pale make-up with purple eyeshadow. I tried to get Char to be Pugsley, but that didn't work. He said he was a poor college student.
My work really got into the Halloween spirit this year. Last year we did our first company trick or treat (where people bring their kids and they go from desk to desk). And only a handful of people dressed up. This year, it was the reverse, only a handful of people DIDN'T dress up in some way, shape or form. It was totally awesome and soo much fun.
Everyone at work got to see our little girl, some people held her. I got to see every one's kids. There were some really creative outfits, like a mime, a 1920's golfer, a hunter, a family of clowns) I've decided that the put together outfits are soo much more fun the then store bought ones. Can't Wait to see what its like next year.
I was thinking we would all be Hippies next year.

Pumpkin Picking

Today we went and got Heidi her first pumpkin. It was so fun. We drove to the end of the valley-it was a really pretty drive-to this little orchard where they have a "pick your own pumpkin patch". It was so warm out side you didn't even need a jacket. (Well we didn't, Heidi still wore one). Anyhow after having chosen a few pumpkins we finally found the right one. So we picked it. They just had a little change box to pay for the pumpkins. (Like I said-small town) Since we forgot to bring any cash we paid $2 in small change, pennies, nickels, the really small change- it was kind of funny. I think it'll be even more fun next year when she's starting to walk and can be more involved in the choosing process. (Then Char wil have to deal with two women being indecisive.)

I love our little chatterbox-Heidi that is. She's so fun to watch when she talks. When she really gets into a converstaion she leans forward or talks louder. Sometimes she acts shy like and pulls her bib or blanket close to her face, other times she gets so excitied she trips over her coos. I wish we knew what she was saying because it seems to be very intesting.

Do you ever...

Have just one of those days that goes into just one of those weeks, that somehow compact to become just one of those months, that you just pray doesn't become just one of those years? Well, I'm having just one of those weeks.
It's like I try to make myself feel better by playing the "Well at least (fill in worst case scenario that could NEVER happen). And at the point in time the fate gods are listening in and look at each other saying "Hey, that sounds like a challenge!"
I'm going to get some chocolate. Anyone have a klonopin they're willing to share? No? Fine I'll stick with my chocolate.
