Without the kids.
*terrifically loud squee*
My mother will be here with the boys (you can certainly send out good thoughts to her, I'm sure she'd appreciate it) so the boys will get to DO Halloween; I bought pumpkins to carve and costumes, candy to hand out, the whole nine yards. But I won't actually be here to SEE all the fun. And we've always carved pumpkins together, the boys and I. So I'm a little sad about that.
Anyway, some friends of ours have an annual Halloween party with those bouncers and little rides for the kids and stuff, so I took them yesterday.
Do I ask them to pose? No, I do not.
But Apparently Indiana Jones and Luke Skywalker are not the smiley type.
They like posed action shots for some reason. I do not understand Aaron's new penchant for the peace sign, but good for him. Give peace a chance, I say.
If you look at Indiana's footwear, you'll notice a splash of... Hang on. Is that ORANGE?
I'm reminded of Nathan Lane's line in The Birdcage. "Well, one does want a hint of color."
And the family. Wait a minute! Who's that stray ladybug? Do I have a daughter that I forgot about?
Nope. Her name is Bailey, and her mom took the picture. :)
So I'm off to try to get the house & myself ready for my trip. I leave Friday. :D
Did I mention that it was without the kids?
