Obsessed. Clearly Obsessed.

I can't help it.

Around .13 when he yells in his deep, breathless voice "Get in the car!" I suddenly find myself melting into a puddle of water.

Only 7 more days to go...

Halloween Learning Points

This year I learned a few new pointers to help get me through Halloween next year.

Lesson Point #1 - Whatever costume My Big Guy decides to wear, My Sweetie will follow.

Lesson Point #2 - Adhesive teeth in any form DO NOT work and you cant talk, eat or really breathe with them in.

Lesson Point #3 - Strong arms and a signigficant knife are often needed for those bigger pumpkins.

Lesson Point #4 - Just because you are cousins, doesn't mean you dont envy each other's costume.

Lesson Point #5 - Eating doughnuts from a string is harder than it looks

Lesson Point #6 - We have big shoes to fill next year when we host the annual adult Halloween party.

Lesson Point #7 - Good things are coming soon! :)

A Moment of Praise

This post is dedicated to my amazing brother-in-law, David, his wife Lindsey and their darling family.

(he's the one on the far left)

Right now David is spending many long days and late nights earning his MBA in California. He and my sister-in-law have also been faithful supporters of Prop 8 and have worked hard for the campaign to protect families and marriage.

In spite of democracy and the voice of the people, my bet is things will get a lot worse (if they even get better). Since the passing of Prop 8 David and his family have gone through very difficult days of personal slurs, window bashing, protests, direct targets at his graduate program, etc.

They don't complain. They hold true to what they believe.

They are amazing! We miss you guys and look forward to seeing you soon.
