Happy Halloween!

My little skeleton with our friend Maria. We went trick or treating in Maria's neighborhood, then stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's. :)

Halloween Parade

We went to the Halloween Parade in our town on Sunday 10/30. It was fun, but cold! Yes, that's snow in the background...

-in Marriage Equality
-in a woman's right to choose
-that Racism still exists
-that quality child care is too expensive
-every one who works an honest full time job should be able to afford a decent place to live
-that adoption is COMPLICATED

Summer in October

The weather this weekend was incrediable- sunny and in the 80's!! Of course, Elizabeth and I took full adventage and spent lots of time outdoors. On Sunday, we went to a farm with Misty and Paden, so beautiful and relaxing. And delicious homemade ice cream, too:)

Today, we had the day off for Columbus day, so E and I actually went to the beach!! It was awesome:) The water was quite chilly, but the weather felt like July.

This and that...

Well, it's been a while...Trying to be a more consistant blogger, but honestly, there hasn't been too much blog worthy stuff going on lately. Just the usual routine of working, Day Care, cooking, cleaning, sleeping...with some fun stuff thrown in on the weekends...lather, rinse, repeat. I'm not complaining. I love our little family life. I do wish I could work just part time. I would love to have more time to keep our apt as clean as I would like, and cook the meals I'd like us to eat. Oh well...
I do have one exciting piece of news...I'm running away from home!! For 4 days, anyway...On 11/10, I'm going to Texas by myself (!!!) to visit a friend of mine who I've known for 23 years, but haven't seen for almost 10. I am sooo excited, but a little nervous too. Elizabeth will stay with our friend Maria while I'm gone. I know she'll be fine, but I've never been apart from her for so long, or so far away. So while I am counting down the days til my little vacay, I do feel some Mommy guilt about leaving her for 4 days. However, Elizabeth is very comfortable with Maria, so I know they'll have a great time together. I'll miss my girl...

Here's a picture E's teacher emailed from school. My preschooler hard at work :)
