Trick or Treat

I have been so far behind in blogging that I don't even know what day it is.  Things like Best Shot MondayWordless Wednesday and Theme Thursday keep knowing what day of the week it is.  So far Halloween has come and gone, the time changed and I am completely swamped at work.

I had grandiose plans to have awesome Halloween pictures, that did not occur.  Nobody told me that a 2 1/2 year old would not be thrilled to wear a plastic Buzz Lightyear costume.  He did manage to get the Trick or Treating part done.  It sound more like he was say "Gimme my treat", and he always said Thank You.  

I did get the chance to hang out with Baked By Beanie to make some goods for the troops. We had a couple of issues but in the end we had a good number of cookies and treat to send.  We were trying to do the baking after our kids were down for the night and two  glasses of wine tired Mommies later we had left out an ingredient or two.  What is the saying... you live you learn. Next go round we bake in the morning (LOL). 

The time change has been nothing but a complete disaster for me.  Nobody informed my two kids that they could sleep later and go to bed later.  Instead they have been miserable in the evenings because they are so tired and up way before the crack of dawn.  Hopefully by the end of the week they will have adjusted.  I hope so for G sake, he will have the boys all to himself for 2 nights. (Grin)

With that I must return to the grindstone.  I really do love my job *wink*!

Here are a few of the shots I did get on Halloween.


  1. I love the shots you got! And, the boys are so sweet in the Disney gear. Sorry work is so hectic. We're all in DST hell right now!

  2. Oh they do look adorable! I hope things slow down for you soon.

  3. Those are adorable shots! My daughter got swept away by the door at one house. She's so little that our neighbor didn't see her and she nearly ended up in the bushes! But at 14 months, she knew that she was getting treats and took 3-4 at a time!

    Happy candy eating!

  4. Your boys are so cute in their costumes! I love the Buzz and little Incredible Baby. Hopefully life will slow down and the kids' schedules will adjust. Kai woke at 5 am this morning, so I can commisserate!

  5. I so hear you on the crazy schedule and this horrible two change! Hope things can slow down for you soon.... I have no hope for myself! Adorable pics of your boys! Yep, I think caden and francesco were separated at birth...I didn't do costumes this year bc I just knew caden would be fighting it every moment....spirited, I tell you.... That's our boys!
    Oh, and to answer your question from a couple of weeks ago... Yes, cole is soooo different com caden...soooo much more laid back.... I tell him he's going to be the saving grace for my sanity!

  6. Baby Jack-Jack just about made me fall off my chair.

    Like your new header.

    Your pictures turned out so good.

  7. Cool new header! I love the Buzz Lightyear costume, he so cute. But Jack-Jack - too much! And the pumpkin picture is perfect. harrison calls them Baby Jacqueline pumpkins instead of Baby Jack-o-lantern pumpkins.

    BTW - I got my 6 random things up this morning! Woo-Hoo!

  8. I think you got some great photos. What great costumes. I also love your new header!!

  9. I'm so behind - I like the new header, I hope it hasn't been up there for weeks, now!

    But Buzz and the Incredibles...Eeeee! So cute!

    Feeling swamped over here too...so I am commiserating with you!!
