Who’s afraid of the big bad bar

Yes after weeks of much doubt and anticipation, it is official… Toad passed the bar. I was so excited when I found out I ate all of the girls Halloween Reese peanut butter cups.

As we commemorate the passing of the bar I must also mourn the passing of a less corporate Toad. Will there ever be a vacation long enough for him to grow such a mane?

A few days before Halloween, the girls and I made a cake to donate for the cakewalk at our church's halloween party. Unfortunately neither of girls won a cake in the cakewalk and they decided to torment the family who won our cake until they invited us over the next day to have a slice with them (Boo Radley ran over to the 33 year old male winner and yelled "hhheeyyy that's MY cake").

Halloween night. I gave in and let Roo princessizes herself, even eyeshadow. Boo was suppose to be a witch (again) when she decided disco fit her mood better, the wig only lasted two houses before it was too scratchy. After 20 minutes of trick-r-treating Roo stated she had plenty of candy and was ready to go home (not her mother's daugther obviously).

pumpkin painting

We spent this last Sunday afternoon dancing around on the deck and painting pumpkins for Halloween. The weather is perfect right now (great time to visit Dallas, if anyone out there is planning a vacation destination).
