Saturday, October 31st-Happy Halloween!!

Here's the Cheeky Monkey and the Lego. Yes, I made the costume! I think it turned out great! Though, I ended up having to carry it 1/2 way thru....

Friday, October 30th-Slave Labor at it's Finest...

This is actually from a couple of weeks ago...Liv spilled her snack in the living room. I decided it would be a good lesson to have her vaccuum it up. I don't really think she learned anything from it, since she now wants to vaccuum all the time, but oh well lol

Thursday, October 29th-Pumpkin Carving day in the USA!

I should actually say that *I* had pumpkin carving day in the USA. I cut the tops off, the kids cleaned alittle bit of the guts out, then got bored so I had to finish them. I did not get pictures of Liv, who is now being called "Sharpie" by my parents. After I got done doing ALL the pumpkins, I was aggravated enough to say forget carving out faces, they can just draw on theirs. Yeah, big mistake. I had a serious lapse in judgement...I gave Jake AND Liv sharpies to decorate the front of their pumpkins. Jake made some silly face on his-no problems, right? Well, Ms Liv, not to be outdone, decided the chair, the floor, her stomach, a part of the garbage can, and oh yes, some of the pumpkin, needed to be sharpied...You may ask, "WHere was Melanie when this was going on??" She stupidly had her head turned away from the kids. I was resting for a minute since I was tired from all the carving (ok, yeah, I hear you-LAME, FEEBLE EXCUSE, but I'm using it anyway) Maybe it was more than a minute....hmmm....Either way, I screamed when I turned my head an noticed what was going on. Liv, knowing she was going to get in tr ouble, had the forthought to go under the table to do her dirty work. I have no one to blame but myself...

Jake, poisng all nice while cleaning his pumpkin

Yes, that's Liv, licking it *sigh*

One of Jake's infamous funny faces LOL

And the Cheeky Monkey, pre-sharpie LOL

Wednesday, October 28thThis is how Jake plays the Wii...

So, I know alot of you haven't had the pleasure of watching Jake play the Wii, but really, it's a sight to be seen. He can't sit still mostly (poor kid gets it from me) These 2 poses are pretty tame. I've seriously seen the kid with his head into the carpet, facing backwards, looking at the TV from between his legs, and controling the Wii game SOMEHOW...I seriously don't get it, but hey! What can I say? He is MY child, so there's plenty of room for alittle weirdness there.

Tuesday, October 27th-Meeting up with Mel, Theo, and Remy!

One of my best friends, Melanie, came into town with her boyfriend Theo and her beautiful 3mth old son, Remy. I was able to meet up with them for dinner in Bend. Originally, they were going to stay at our house for 2 days, however, with the flu germs barely escaping our humble abode, we mutually decided it wasn't such a great idea to have them come to germ country LOL. It was so wonderful to see them. I was sad for the night to end.

Monday, October 26th-Happy 3rd Birthday, Cheeky!!!
