Okay, so I'm not very good with the traditions and all, but last night we carved pumpkins. I thought it would be fun to carve them to match the girls smiles but nobody went for that. Mark, of course, did all drawing and carving. I was in charge of scooping out the slimy guts.

And, for special effect. . .

A Toothy Grin for Halloween

Little Miss Pooh Bear lost her first tooth on Tuesday and it was pretty traumatic. It was soooo loose, barely hanging in there. When Mark asked her if she wanted him to pull it, chaos ensued. She screamed, she cried, it's my tooth, it's my tooth! Finally she let him look at the tooth and all he had to do was wiggle it a tiny bit and it fell out. It didn't take her long to decide that loosing a tooth wasn't too bad. In fact, by the time she got home from school, it was a pretty cool story, one in which she didn't shed one single tear. Anyway here's a picture of our little Jackie-o-lantern. What a grin!

Right. . .

Like I would really take a picture of myself on my phone (nice hu?) and post it to my blog. Mark is teaching me how to post from my phone. It does, however, show my great new haircut. I broke down, under duress with the family pics coming, and paid good money for this do. I like it. Finally, a haircut I like.

Family Photos for Real

Well, I can finally take a big breath. We had our family pictures taken this afternoon and man, was it cold! The girls had a great time hamming it up for the camera. However, the next time I decide we need new pictures, I need to be reminded that it takes a small army (of 1) an entire two weeks to prepare for the 45 minute sitting! I hope, I hope, I hope the pictures turn out fabulous. I wish I had thought to snap a couple of my own but my brain was fried, so no cute pictures to post right now.

On the flooring front - we get new carpet installed on Friday, again. Yea for us! We picked out a different carpet and are hoping that when it is installed it is all the same color. This is what it looks like right now...
pretty neat hu? Anyhoo, that's it from me for now.

Practice makes Perfect

Today we "practiced" hair for our new family pictures that we are taking this Wednesday. OMGosh! These kids have to be the cutest kids I have ever seen! Pooh Bear's not a big sitting for the curling iron kind of girl and complained through practically the whole thing but she is too cute. And Drama, she just loves the girl time, no matter what it is. We even practiced styling The Boss' hair - that was interesting. So here are a few of our practice pictures.
