Here I am...

You know when you decide okay, today is the day that I am going to start writing in my journal and I am going to write every night and nothing is going to stop me, and then your next entries are saying "sorry it's been so long" or " from now on I am writing every night" and then this vicious cycle keeps going round and round? Well I am not going to make apologies or make empty promises that I don't know if I can keep, all I will say is I will try to do better at keeping this blog afloat!

My kids are getting so excited for Halloween! Austin mostly. He has a strange confidence that comes with dressing up, especially since this year he has a mask! He is going as a glow in the dark Skeleton, and Alyssa is going as a witch, a cute witch! We got BOO'd the other night. Not the bad kind where people shout BOOOO! BOOOO! at you, but the kind where a secret person comes to your home and leaves a little treat on your porch, with a cute little poem, that goes something like this:
The air is cool, the season full
soon Halloween will come to us all

The spooks are after things to do
in fact, a spook brought this to you

"BOO" is the shield, from spooking hour
just hang it up and watch it's power

on your front door is where it works
it wards off spooks and scary jerks

the treats that came with crypted note
are yours to keep enjoy them both

The power comes when friends like you
will copy this note and make it two

then others here along our street
will say howdy do to all they meet

we'll all have a smile upon our face
no one will know who "BOO'ed" whose place

just one short day to work your spell
or a big zap will strike your fail

and don't forget a nifty treat
like something cute or something sweet

please join the fun lets really hear it
spread some "BOO's" and Halloween Spirit!

So we got our BOO and Austin was so excited to go, since we went last year, but this time he wanted to wear his costume and hide at the door and scare the people!!! I told him you weren't supposed to be seen and that you were supposed to run away and he was set on staying at the door to scare the people. Anyone that knows Austin knows that he would NEVER do this, he is reserved and doesn't like to be center of attention. So we knocked on the door with the kids in their costumes and we ran, and Austin stood there ready to scare his unsuspecting victims, but when the rest of us ran he went from their porch to hiding behind their lamp post, to running away with us...he was so grumpy that we didn't stay and let him scare our neighbors!! I told him he will have to wait until Halloween... BUT he can't wait so, here and there throughout October he would put his costume on and hide around the house and jump out and scare us!!! He gets a kick out of it!!!!
Don't be scared, here he is!!!!!........

He is such a teaser like his daddy and is going to scare someone!!!!

ringing the doorbell....
RAAAAARRRR!!!! Judging by the look on dad's face I think he scared him!!!!!

Alyssa wanted to show off her costume too! Her face is red and blotchy from the tantrum she was throwing, I don't even remeber why...I got her to stop by saying I would take her picture in her costume...she is becoming quite the HAM!!! Thank goodness, I have been deprived of taking my kids pictures (cooperatively) for about a year!!!!
