We had our annual spooky dinner the week before Halloween while grandma was still here. (I miss when Isaac used to call it "pooky pooky dinner.") On the menu--cobwebs and batwings (pasta), monster toes (wrapped lil smokies), bones and blood (breadsticks and marinara), monster eyes (deviled eggs.)

I took the two younger kids to Ross on Monday with my friend Monica and her son, and it was such a horrible experience, I have no desire to take them out shopping any time soon. The children ran amok throughout the store, threw kicking and screaming temper tantrums when I tried to reel them in, (at least Finley did) and it was one of those trips where I was pretty sure everybody in the store was just happy to see the backside of us as we left. That evening, Finley drew a picture and told me, "That's you in the store. You are mad!" What I can't believe is how she managed to make such a good angry face. But that very well may have been just how I looked.

We started our second day at Disneyland off bright and early on Main Street, ready to dash off to Peter Pan. Because of the age of our kids, the fact that we had already ridden most of the other rides that we wanted to, and that there was no magic morning on Friday, we decided to go for Peter Pan first off, and we were able to walk right on. And may I just say that our group seemed to appreciate the bright yellow shirt I was wearing--it made it easy to spot me in a crowd. Keith rode with Finley.
