Preparing for babies

A couple of weeks ago, we had a little get-together for Candie in preparation for the arrival of Thing 1 & Thing 2.  I mean that in the most pleasant, endearing way.  I love them lots, and we thought that'd be a fun theme.  I mean, how often do you even get a chance to have that as an option?  We're just lucky I guess.  We (and by we I mean mostly my wonderful roommate Megan) took lots of pictures, so I'll just put a random sampling on here to show off the festivities.

(their last name is Green in case you didn't know...) :)

beautiful blanket made by Auntie Dee Dee

Dad didn't come to the shower, but he did contribute to the gift...and made sure Mom let everyone know. :)  (it's a pacifier thermometer, and he insisted there were 2 b/c "if they are sick you don't want them sharing pacifiers")

Full body bibs (they even strap around the bottom of the leg)

I can't wait!

Halloween 2009

As to be expected, Halloween was a lot of fun.  I seem to just love it more and more every year.  I think the good people of the world need to take back Halloween and make sure it stays fun, yet decent.  It makes me sad to see more and more every year the immodest and inappropriate that comes out of a fun-filled holiday.  I'm glad there are still a few good people in the world that like to have a good time, but don't mistake that to mean that you have to let go of standards and values.  Fun can be had being fully clothed and sober.  Want proof?  They say a picture speaks a thousand words..I'll let them do (most) of the talking... :)
