Merry Christmas!

So, I could be jumping the gun...considering it is not yet December but it's now or never! Santa has been informed of what we all want. Gabe was happy to sit on Santa's lap this year - after we told him that he is a nice guy, like Epaw. Jude then said "yeah, he sort of looks like Pepaw." (sorry Dad) Anyway, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and May the FORCE be With You through the next few weeks!

It's Scooby Dooby Dooooo

Scooby didn't like his costume, for the most part. Shaggy didn't like his wig or his facial hair....ever. Fred thought he was going to get a "cool new work shirt" out of his costume AND that he was going to "bring the ascot back"...NEITHER of which are going to happen. Velma "Ellafied" her outfit with argyle leg warmers and sparkly Mary Janes....as for Daphne, well, she just wanted to survive the evening with enough candy for all - which only happened because I resorted to making the kids give out all of their candy, old Easter candy and sadly the remaining candy from Valentine's Day...I know, I vow to do better next year. Happy Halloween!

Half Marathon - 13.1 WE DID IT!

giving high five to Jude!
