I totally suck.

I completely and totally suck at this blogging thing. Between facebook, editing, keeping up my photography blog, being a monther, and all the other million things around the house personal blogging just seems to fall to the wayside.

I won't apologize. I can't promise that it's not going to be another month before I blog again but at least I'm willing to accept it. Sometimes I wonder who I blog for anyway. I'm never going to get a blog book printed out. Every day that goes by I just get more and more stressed out about it. I need to learn to let go. I'm sure nobody cares about our lives as much as I think they might.

Halloweenie!

It's so totally awesome with a baby. We did so many fun things and a few not so fun things.

We started off our Halloween weekend by going to Darins works annual Halloween bash. Nora loved seeing all the people dressed up. She absolutely adores Elmo. We watch Elmo movies at least 2 times a day. But by the look of her face you'd think she never saw Elmo in her life.


 My niece, Alyssa, who's definitely more devil than angel. The above two pictures are also the ONLY pictures I got of Darin in any part of his costume. I'm upset I didn't make that more of a priority.

We were a traveling circus in case you couldn't tell. Daddy was a clown, Mommy was the ringmaster, and baby was a pink performing circus elephant.


Later that night we attended our ward's trunk or treat and then went to Grandmas house to carve pumpkins. Nora did a good job of getting really messy.



Wasn't Saturday night awful? I felt so bad for all the kids that were freezing their tooshies off outside. We attempted to go trick or treating but ran back to the house after 2 houses. We had my sisters family over and we ate good food and just hung out.



And then Nora had a taste of a sucker. I haven't given her hardly any candy so it was a real treat. She couldn't get enough.



Then a spent all night Saturday puking my guts out. Gosh dang flu.

Nora threw up Sunday morning and we laid around the house the rest of the day.

Not so fun.

What was your favorite Halloween activity?

What an awesome idea for Halloween costumes! Traveling Circus? You are so creative! Nora looks so precious in her pink! Especially in the blue sucker pic.

I'm sorry you've been so sick. Yuck! Hopefully it was just a 24 hour-er and you're feeling much better!
