Fall is Whizzing By...

Don'tcha think? The leaves have passed peak here, we've woken to frost several mornings, and the clock's been turned back.

My little Tom Tom celebrated his fourth birhday yesterday. He exclaimed, "Holy COW!" when he unwrapped his presents - a Shake and Go Batman plane and a Vtech Motion. I just wish I could pause time for a while so I could savor his little-ness a bit longer.

Halloween was low key and fun here. All of my kids changed their minds about what they wanted to dress up as.

Here is Colin, as a Demon Skateboarder, (note the matching Element hoodie - isn't that serendipitous?) with Ryan, as a skeleton:

Brenna switched from her planned Mummy costume to a hippy chick. Isn't she groovy?

Jimmy chose to be Black Spidey:

And Tommy, who swore he'd be Superman, changed his mind when he saw this alien costume. I'm glad he did, even if the mask only stayed on for pictures, hee-hee!

I had worked the night before and was absolutely exhausted. So putting on a bit of makeup seemed like a good idea. I added some past costume pieces and transformed myself into this:

Pretty scary, huh?

Dreamgirls challenge 15 is live. I used the song lyrics to the

song "B!tch" by Meredith Brooks as inspo for this page. The yellow and blue flower was made from glimmer misted cupcake wrappers:

You can hear the song on my playlist in the side bar. Come play along! Dolores put together an awesome prize package. Plus, a little bird told me there might be a DT Call coming soon, so you wouldn't want to miss it!
