1. Avery was a cute little lobster for Halloween last night. Kind of. She absolutely REFUSED to wear the hat portion of the costume, which made her costume a little less clear.
|Quick! Caught one photo before the hat was ripped off|
|Her preferred pose is nontraditional|
2. Last week, my husband's office had their annual chili cook-off. Every year my husband comes home from this and says - you would've won. So, finally we tested it and I submitted my chili. I came in second place! The winning chili had bison meat that had been slow-cooked in bacon fat. Since that's cheating, we'll just say I won. Hehehe. Also, my chili was the one consumed first. Of course, I had to make more so that I could actually eat some, especially with the dreary cold weather!
3. Early voting with a 14 month old in a swing state is not something I would wish upon my worst enemy! When we first got in line, Avery was happy. Eating goldfish, playing with her little toy car, smiling at everyone. By the end, she was screaming and trying to run away. So much so, that my vote almost didn't count. In the rush to catch her, I did not press the "confirm" button hard enough. After I caught her, I ran to escape the room before she completely melted down. Luckily, the election official chased me down so that I could push the stupid confirm button. Thank goodness, I would have hated to waste over an hour of suffering at the hands of Angry Avery!
|Next time Mommy, bring more yogurt raisins.|
Do you vote early? Is anyone in the states ready for the political ads to cease and desist?
Did you and yours dress up for Halloween?
Most importantly, what's your favorite Halloween treat?
