This actually happened quite a while ago, at the beginning of November, but I've been really busy so it's taken me a while to get my act together. We were in Louisville for 4 days and it was a great visit. Ok, ok,ok I was a little crabby but the kids were terrific and they always love seeing Grandma Rosie. Thanks for the great time Grandma!!!

Do you remember being a kid and getting your Halloween costume every year? Did you love yours this much??? Sam does. He is the webslinger and, even though he has NEVER seen a spiderman cartoon, he can tell you all about the masked superhero. Where does he get this stuff!!!! He insisted on wearing the costume all night last night. I had to draw the line at wearing it to bed. He jumped all over the furniture and snared Camper and Lilly in his invisible webs, fighting crime wherever it was lurking. He even wore the mask in the car to school, maybe I SHOULD send in that Mother of the Year form....
The first picture I just thought was nice of the kids playing with this super cool set of blocks I got at the resale shop. Sam really likes building things and we have had a great time with these. In the second picture, Lilly actually hoisted that basket into the chair and climbed into it while I was sitting right next to her. I never noticed, I was busy doing something else, like filling out my nomination form for Mother of the Year.

So I went with Sam's class to the pumpkin patch on Friday and it was really fun. Sam, all the sudden, hates having his picture taken and was annoyed with having his Mom there all day. It was pretty funny. So, this is what I got.

For years I have lived uner the heavy weight of Catholic guilt about not having my kids Baptized. I'm finally free. It feels good. Sam and Lil behaved like angels, eventhough Sam had to cling to Dad for dear life as he was slung over the font. I thought for sure that Lil would scream "stop that" or hit the preist or something but she did not. Sam did have a moment where he wasn't sure about the whole thing and he told Fr. Levitt that he "didn't want this stupid Baptism" but that was before we actually entered church so maybe God wasn't listening yet. Let's hope. Anyway, thanks to all who were involved, you know who you were. I appreciate all the help and support. Aunt Bish was a super trooper, getting up super early to be at our house at 8:30 am!!! She's gonna be an awesome Godmother!!! Lil's Godmother couldn't make it from Colorado, my cousin (and MY goddaughter) Emily, so Mom stood proxy, way to go! Grandma Marsha and Grandpa Bob took pictures, thank goodness! I hardly remember the whole thing, I was so stressed about what the kids would do!!!
