Happy Halloween?????

It seems that the term "Happy Halloween" is wrong. It's supposed to be this spooky day with witches and ghooles and tricks. I think the expression should be Horrid Halloween or something like that. So in honor of all things HORRID, here is a video clip. This guy gives me the willies like almost nothing else. He can do all these creepy tricks because he is the Antichrist. I'm sure of it. Right now he is in the phase where he is just gaining our trust and admiration. But I see through him. His eyes are too hypnotic. He creeps me out. He is the Devil. Watch this... The Antichrist in action.

I'm just working on downloading the pics from while I was away. I'll try and post something else later during Crofton's nap or tonight while he's sleeping... Here's a photo to tide you over and to give you an idea of how BUSY it is when I go down to visit my sister. She has twin girls and all 3 kids are very mobile! We were trying to shop in this pic.

It's ok to miss me....

(Click on any image to view larger)
Two posts today. For four reasons. First, I am leaving tomorrow to go down to the mainland for a couple days. I will be back on Friday. But my parents are coming back with me for the weekend, so I can't see getting much computer time. I'm sure I will suffer blog withdrawl and you'll all have forgotten about me by the time I get back.

SecondI have to show you
what Rob and I saw on the
back of this car the day
before he left. We saw this
car, and then of course,
we not only followed him,
we tailgated. I loved that
he had a lock on his license
plate. He finally stopped at
the liquor store and saw me
get out and take the close up
of h
is pad lock.
You just KNOWthat made

him nervous.

Thirdly, I actually did my hair the other day. I was becoming the ponytail queen. Then I wished I hadn't because you could sure notice my grey roots when it was down!! EEEW! Put it up! Put it up!!

And fourthly, becuase I
was playing around with
my digital camera and
wanted to show you how
much better the quality is!
I learned how to use the
timer and all kinds of fun features. I love it!!

Cut me some slack! I'm 4 months pregnant!!

knock knock...whose there?

So there's the house that's holding Richard Simmonds hostage near Rob's work. And then there's THIS house. I had to go take a few photos. It's just THAT weird. I can't help but wonder what the inside looks like!

How many parents do you think actually take there kids
there trick or treating?

You are
What Rejected Crayon Are You?(click here)

Your Hidden Talent

You have the natural talent of rocking the boat, thwarting the system.
And while this may not seem big, it can be.
It's people like you who serve as the catalysts to major cultural changes.
You're just a bit behind the scenes, so no one really notices.

Hit the road Jack

Rob left for SanDiego this morning. He will be gone for about 8 or 9 days. He's driving a 5 ton truck there. I know he's a very good driver and I really shouldn't worry about him, but I can't help it. I worry. THAT'S what I do. And I do it well.

A couple weeks ago, I was on the highway heading home and who should be behind me? ROB! It was weird, but funny. I took a picture at a light. It didn't turn out very well because of the glare on the glass (and my crappy camera), but I'll post it so you can see anyway. You might be able to see his famous smile if you click on it and it's bigger. We got a new camera yesterday!! Yea!! I'm sooo excited. Today I will install the software for it and play with all my settings.

So it's just me and Crofton for awhile. I think we will go down to the mainland and visit my sister and her kids and my parents. Although I know what I should really do is stay home, clean my house and reply to, forward, and delete my emails. I have, and I'm not even slightly exaggerating here, 892 emails to go through. it now has become such a daunting task that I keep putting it off, making things worse, because I know that I will end up with knots in my shoulders and a massive headache.

Acne monster

I went to the Dr today, just for the regular monthy prenatal check up. Heard the heartbeat. Trust me, it's quite the sound. Everything is going great and I haven't gained any weight since my last appointment. Although I don't see how that's possible the way I'm eating. Yesterday I had THREE donuts. Yup, that's right...THREE! Here's some info incase anyone is interested. Just skip it if you're not. No biggie.

Get ready for a growth spurt! In the next few weeks your baby will double her weight and add inches to her length. You're going through a bit of a growth spurt yourself. You're probably looking and feeling a whole lot better as you adapt to pregnancy. Less nausea, fewer mood swings, and "glowing" skin contribute to an overall sense of well-being.
How your baby's growing: At 4 1/2 inches long (head to bottom) and 3 1/2 ounces, your baby is about the size of an avocado. In the next three weeks, she'll go through a tremendous growth spurt, though, doubling her weight and adding inches to her length. Her lower limbs are much more developed now. Her head is more erect than it has been, and her eyes have moved toward the front of her head. Your baby's ears are close to their final position, too. Some of her more advanced body systems are working, including her circulatory system and urinary tract. Her heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, circulating her total blood volume through her body many times. (By the end of your pregnancy, this will increase to about 190 quarts.) The patterning of her scalp has begun, though her hair isn't recognizable yet. Although closed, her eyes are moving (slowly), and she's even started growing toenails.
"Glowing" skin...ya right! My skin is a nightmare right now. I look like some kind of swamp creature. And i'm pretty sure I made some child cry because this kid pointed and screamed at me and then started to wail.I went to the store today to get a few things. It was so busy. I could hardly find a parking space anywhere, so I had to improvise. This guy was all mad and whining about his paint job...blah blah blah...whatever buddy.

Fat Pigs

Mel (LBSeahag) has asked me to join her on her new blog adventure called Panhandlers Gone Wild. Being that she is (in my opinion) the queen of all bloggers, I was so honored, I accepted. Today I posted my first post there. Please check it out. We need your support and please email any crazy photos you may have of panhandlers near you that we can use. Make sure you comment so we know you stopped by!

Rob and I got our Halloween candy to hand out on Tuesday. We were in Costco and walking through the aisles (we actually went because I was hungry and we were hoping for good samples) and we came across these. They are called Fat Pigs (click on the link to the left. the photos are better than mine. Plus you can see their actual size. And for the record we paid less than $3.00 for our box. This price is highway robbery.) The irony of it was not lost and we couldn't stop laughing. Kids get soooo much candy for Halloween these days it's nuts. They show up at your door with big black garbage bags practically full of candy. Very cheecky in my opinion. And then society wonders why our kids are fat pigs. For the past couple days, our conversations have gone something like this...
Rob will ask me "Did you have a fat pig today?"
"Why not?"
"I dunno, just couldn't get into it."
"Well you don't mind if I have a fat pig tonight do you?"
"No, not at all the fat pigs you can handle"
And then we laugh. Because we are sick.Neither of us have actually tried one yet. I don't know if I can bare to part with them now either.
