Fun Friday Photos!

Photo booth pictures crack me up!

My office had a Halloween party last night, and one of the biggest hits every year is the photo booth.

Our biggest challenge is trying to fit all six of us into such a tiny space. 

Happy Friday everyone!

InstaFriday: Preparing for Halloween

It is almost Halloween! 
Our family still has so much to do:

A trip to the pumpkin patch.

Four separate Halloween parties.

Carving Pumpkins.

And of course, trick-or treating!
(boo to the fact it is on a Monday night this year)

But, we have squeezed in a lot of Halloween fun already:

Decorating the front of our house.

Baking Halloween cupcakes.

Shopping for and trying on costumes.

We were "boo-ed", complete with four sets of plactic vampire teeth.
At first, Vivian wanted nothing to do with them . . . let alone make a scary face.
(BTW, I have to admit that some of the other kiddos' faces scared me a little.

Vivan finally tried them for a group picture.
She is not really feeling it.

Dressing in black and "boo-ing" our neighbors. 
We were caught at one house, but that almost made it more fun.
Running for cover after ringing the doorbell with four kids in tow
was one of the funniest things I have experienced in a long time. 
You should have heard the giggles coming from Eliza.

And wearing our long-sleeved Halloween shirts as many times as the
crazy hot Southern Californina weather will let us.

What are you doing to get ready for Halloween?

Life just gets in the way.

I am not really good at this whole blogging thing.

Life just gets in the way.  Between taking care of four little people, two big people (one of which is myself), making sure there is food on the table, clean clothes to wear, shuttling the kids back and forth to their activities and trying to juggle the demands of my job, I can never find the time to blog.

I started this blog as a type of journal to memorialize some of the little things in life that are often forgotten as the years pass by (note:  I am also really bad at journaling . . . and scrapbooking for that matter.  I love the finished projects of a beautiful photo album or a heartfelt journal, but never have time to do either).

So, since I am one of those crazy type A people who MUST accomplish all goals and MUST cross all items of a "to-do" list (I am also guilty of adding things to my to-do list after the fact just so I can experience the joy of crossing it out), I am making it a goal to blog 4 times before the end of October.

There.  It is out there.  No way I can avoid blogging now.

(query: does this post county as one of the four?)
