I wore the green dress with the booties. My sister was ALL ABOUT the booties and my mom even jumped on-board the bootie bandwagon. :) I felt very cute and comfortable aside from the poop baby I was carrying around. :( OH MY GOSH, my stomach was huge and uncomfortable. Luckily the dress helped camouflage that and no one asked me when I was due. (turns out the due date was the next morning...) (SICK!)
Anyways! I really enjoyed talking with a few different people and Patrick and I enjoyed our time away and a couple of slow dances.
That morning before the wedding we had a very nice brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. Looking back, all those waffles probably didn't help my situation any, if you know what I mean.
Patrick is working on this huge project for his brother that I cannot even begin to explain but it involves a Kinect and ghosts and a tesla coil and OMgosh, really?? He loves that kind of thing, though, (not the ghost part but the other stuff) so he is happy to have a challenge in front of him. He wanted to bail out on church, though, so I got kind of crabby about that. I got over it (church helped) and we had a pretty nice day together.
We are giving the kids an electronic detox this week and Nicky is really making a play for the iPad right now. Poor kid. Here, Nicky, these are crayons...let me show you how they work...
Halloween! Halloween was fun but I was so glad when it was over. What a long, high-energy day. I did not want to carve pumpkins this year (grinch!) but my kids really did so we did 3 of them and I actually enjoyed myself. We also roasted the seeds and they actually turned out. huh. (we did that stuff the night before. I didn't take one picture of our pumpkins or my kids dressed up. BAD MAMA. Well, Nicky didn't dress up but the other two did. I did, too! My sister and I were witches. (shut up!) ;)
I did take a picture of their Halloween breakfast:
Also, here is the stuff I painted for Ruby's room:
I just told Nicky, "I'm almost done and we'll find something to do." He said, "sometin yike pay the iPad???"
It might be a long day.
