Well, it was a bit of a rough start around our house. Cash absolutely did not want to put his costume on...he's hated it ever since I bought it, like 3 months ago. But after some compromising (letting him take his Lightening McQueen as long as he left his hood on) he finally succumbed to my threatens ;)
First up...Harn Homestead. We had a hard time trying to decide which place we actually wanted to go to, Harn or the Zoo, but we ended up going to the Harn Homestead because it was the closest to our house. Cash was a little timid at first but he warmed up pretty quickly.
This picture best describes the evening once Cash figured out what it was all about. He was a red patent leather blur yelling "Candy, Candy" as loud as he could, giggling the entire time :)
Venturing up to the door all by himself.
Look at that face!! Barely proud of himself :)
Cash was having so much fun Trick-or-Treating, I just couldn't bring myself to ending the night. So, we loaded up in the car and headed over to the Zoo.
The trip to the zoo was difinitely worth the $7.00. It was so much fun!! You walk the big loop around the zoo and every so often there is a little venue set up, they're great for pictures but I couldn't get my Guitar to stand still long enough. People were giving out candy at each venue and every so often in between.
Me and Cash a mere hour or so after my horrific accident :)
I healed quite fast...didn't I?
Well, that wraps up night one of our "All Hallowseve" adventures. It was filled with fun, laughter and just sheer joy at watching my little guy have so much fun! Luckily, I think he's forgot about all his loot....aside from the sucker he had for breakfast this morning, he hasn't really cared too much about it. Now, I just have to make myself do the same :)
I'll be back with Round 2 in the next day or two. Blog ya later!!
Thursday was our big Halloween Party at work. Each department had a theme and ours was "Zombie". We had our whole department all decorated and had a great time. I struggled with what I wanted to dress as. I originally wanted to go as a dead Disney character but didn't have much luck finding exactly what I wanted. I, of course waited until Wednesday to try and put together an outfit. I hit all the party stores with no luck insight. Just when I thought I wouldn't be dressing up anymore, I walked into a thrift store at 8:00 pm and guess what beauty caught my eye.....this lovely dress circa 1980 something :) It was much "lovelyer" before I "zombiefied" it. I don't look so much dead as I do beat up, but I had a good time. Here are a few pictures from the day.
My boss, Denise, the "Zombie Bowler".
Amy, the "He-She Electrician" who died from being electricuted on the job :)
Me with "Zombie Bride", Mindi. Yeap, she's really that short or am I really that tall? ;)
Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Halloween. I'm making this post my offical return to the Blogging Scene. I'll post some pics soon of my little "Guitar Hero" trick-or-treater soon.
Well, the old saying "Third Times a Charm" does not apply to this situation. I'm going to be starting back to work in a few days so that means I had to put my baby boy in daycare :( And he is not okay with this decision. Today was his third day there and it was the worst drop off yet. He actually ran from his teacher so she couldn't pick him up when I was walking out of the room :( Then I heard the door shaking violently when I was walking down the hall away from his classroom. Awful!! He's always super excited to see me when I pick him up and he jibber jabbers all the way home in the car telling me about his day so I'm hoping it will only be a matter of time before drop off is easier. My fingers are crossed. Not sure my heart can handle too many more door bustin' escape attempts.
I'm I awful for taking that picture of him bawling? Hey...I want to remember the good times and the bad :)
