Halloween Party

So last night we had a Halloween party at Laura's house. This has been months in the making, buying and preparing the decorations and planning the layout of the Haunted House. While distracted with the set up of the event I was not too focused on my costume until the last minute. Then, at the comment of another pregnant friend (thanks Karma!) I was hit by an idea of pure genius. What better way to be appropriately inappropriate and offend as many people as possible while getting a good laugh than to dress up as a nun when I'm 9 months pregnant! Jim, as always a good sport, went along for the ride and was dressed to match as a priest. :) So here, for your viewing pleasure are a few of the Halloween costume shots.

There are, of course, other photos, but these are my two favorites from our camera. When Dad downloads the ones he took I will try to post up an addendum. :)

Seussification phase I

Ok, so it took a little longer than I had anticipated to get the first phase of project Seussify the baby's room underway. At long last here are the images of the first few characters. More will appear in time, but the process is long and arduous.

We've been using foam backed poster board and tempera paints covered with a sheet of sticky acetate to help preserve them. Jim has been responsible for drawing and cutting out all of the figures. I do the painting. Each figure is attached to the wall with adhesive velcro so that we can move them around and change them out. The plan (perhaps a bit ambitious) is to be able to have a good number of figures so that when we get sick of looking at the same ones we can do some Seuss remodeling. Jim is keen on drawing up some Seuss architecture and I want a Grinch in time for Christmas. Other Seuss suggestions are happily being taken. :)

The Gender Question part II

Well, I asked the Gender Question once before (see the April 11, 2006 post) and here we go again....slightly different slant. Anyone care to place bets? I figure in a week or two I might get a "delivery date" pool going. ;)

Will Little Bear be a girl or a boy?
Definitely a girl! Here comes Morgan Jade.
Owen Shae it is!
Who the hell cares? We'll find out in less than 2 months anyway.
