Trunk or Treat

here's the kids right before we left for the party last night. perseus and andromeda. i made andy's tunic and cloak, and my mom and dad make his accessories. derek's mom made emmy's outfit and i made her beaded headband. i thought they looked pretty good.

and now, for some of my favorites at the party. what can i say, i'm a big star wars nerd.
here's my friend with her son dressed as wickett.

and of course i had to snap a picture of yoda and luke. these two are the younger siblings of my friend maura.

there were lots of great costumes, but these were my favorites. once again, i did not dress up.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

we've made it seven years so far. my husband and i got married in reno seven years ago. our wedding was at 1pm, so in the morning i bleached my roots, showered, dried and curled my hair, did my makeup, made sure i had everything i needed, showed my maid of honor my new nightie, and was finally ready to go. what did derek do that morning? he went duck hunting. he took today off and our kids are spending the day with my mom. they spent the night there last night and my mom took andy to school this morning and will pick him up also. we went out for breakfast and we'll just eat at home for lunch, but we'll go out for dinner. so far it's been a good day.

My Latest Project

my hands are so sore. i've been crocheting a scarf for andy, and i'm really slow. it's only a little over six feet long. andy wanted a scarf like harry potter, so i tried to get the gryffindor colors. i think i did okay. he's really happy. he should be able to use it for a few years.

please disregard his tongue. i don't know why he wouldn't take a nice picture. this was the best one.

Don't Worry

i haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. i've been sick. i've also been crocheting. andy wants a "harry potter" scarf. i'm doing my best to make one, but i am very slow. must be my technique. i'll post a picture of the scarf when i'm done with it.

on another note, andy has been doing much better in school. he hasn't been sent to the principal's office in weeks and he been getting really good marks each week. i think it must have just taken him some time to adjust to school. i hope next year emmy is not as hard as andy was at first.

Medusa Beware!

andy went to a birthday party today where he was to wear his halloween costume. he's dressed as Perseus.

we went with the harry hamlin style and not the newer perseus.
